Spray it on before you cook it
Intense physical labor is required to clear your driveway and sidewalk of snow, especially when that snow is wet and heavy. Applying nonstick cooking spray to your shovel will make digging a little less of a chore. It'll make it easier to push through the snow and keep it from clinging to your shovel. Remember to clean the ice shovel well before putting it away in the shed or garage.
Schedule Snow Removal Activities
Waiting for the snow to stop before clearing it away is a bad idea. Instead, make a plan to do a quick shoveling job every hour or two, depending on how long the Snow Removal Maple Ridge is expected to linger.
Distribute Sand in Slippery Places.
In need of better shoveling grip? Cover the ground where you'll be working with a thin layer of sand or kitty litter. Clearing snow and ice will be easier with the rough surface to grab onto.
You can make your own ice melter.
While it's best to be ready for anything the winter brings, if you ever find yourself without ice melt or rock salt and snowed in, there is a solution you can manufacture using common supplies. Spoonful of dish soap, shot of rubbing alcohol, and half a gallon of water—pour it where it's needed most.
Simply blow the snow away with your leaf blower.
Use your leaf blower till it breaks, then put it away until next year. Using a leaf blower is a quick and efficient way to get rid of the powdery snow.
Whenever it starts to snow, make sure your driveway is protected.
A plastic tarp can be used to cover exposed sidewalks, walkways, and even your automobile (these car snow removal gear could come in helpful, too) in the event that you don't have access to a shovel or electric snow blower. As soon as the snow stops falling, you can easily peel back the sheet to reveal the road. Snow melt mats, heated mats that you cover sidewalks and driveways with before a storm, are an improved alternative.

Facilitate the Pain of Shoveling
The assumption that shoveling snow will cause back pain is false. The market currently offers a plethora of ergonomic snow shovels. The task of shoveling the driveway won't be any less arduous, but at least you won't have as much muscle fatigue afterwards.
Skilled Snow Clearing
A snow blower can make short work of a snow-covered driveway, but only if you use it right. When clearing snow off a driveway, it's preferable to begin in the middle and work outward. If you want to keep alternating, you should turn around and come back down the opposite side. As a result, you won't have to make as many adjustments to the chute and the second pass shouldn't be necessary.
