As an ice melt manufacturer in the New England area, we know a few things about ice melt — including the most effective ways to use it. In today’s blog post we will be discussing a few of the most effective and safe ways to use your ice melt once you purchase it from one of our local ice melt distributors.
Don’t Wait Until It Is Too Late
The most efficient time to use ice melt outside your home, business, or facility is to apply it before you think that you will need it. Yeah, you read that right. While it might seem a little silly to put ice melt down on bare, or mostly melted ground from the last storm, it is the most efficient way to ensure that ice and snow does not build up. While it is important to make sure that the ice melt is applied evenly before the storm hits, it is also valuable to keep applying layers during, and after, the storm to ensure that the ice melt can keep up with the volume of snow and ice that is accumulating.
Don’t Waste Your Money On Cheap Ice Melt
Much like how a cheap sprinkler will not be able to do a good job watering your yard, cheap ice melt will not do a good job of melting it in the winter. Using cheap ice melt does not only burn a hole in your pocket and do a sub-par job melting ice, but it also leaves behind a large amount of wasted product — potentially corroding your concrete if it is not cleaned. Instead, it is important to spend your money on products that will actually work like the Blank Industries, PLLC Cutting EdgeⓇ wholesale ice melt.
Good ice melt, while costing more, will save you money in the long run. “How is this possible?” you might ask. Well, to put it simply, using a high-quality ice melt product means that you will see better results while using less product — meaning that the longevity of the products life will lengthen.
Apply The Ice Melt Efficiently
First and foremost, when you are using ice melt on your commercial or residential property, it is important to ensure that you are well protected before you begin applying the product. Protect your eyes and wear gloves. Using your bare hands is not super dangerous, but most ice melts are hygroscopic, meaning that they absorb moisture and could potentially dry out your skin.
Once you are protected, it is important to evenly distribute the ice melt evenly, using roughly 2-4 ounces every square yard. The overuse of ice melt product can be damaging to plants near your sidewalk or driveway, so be mindful of where you apply the product.
