How Can You Avoid Ice Melt Overuse? 

Before we get to this, you must know the types of ice melt available in the market. These are in liquid, granular, or pellet form. 

  • Calcium chloride
  • Potassium chloride 
  • Magnesium chloride 
  • Rock salt / sodium chloride
  • Blends 
  • Carbonyl compounds 
  • Homemade ice melt products

Each of the ice melt in bulk has unique properties that many commercial establishments across the country use. 

  • Always follow the instructions mentioned at the back of the jar, bag, or bucket. 
  • Most ice melt should be applied before a snowstorm and after a snowfall to help melt it faster. 
  • Use liquid ice melt before a snowfall only as it is ineffective after a snowfall. 
  • Most granular and pellet form ice melt generate exothermic heat, and very few ice melt, such as Safe Thaw, generate endothermic heat directly from the sun. 
  • The measuring cups or spreaders are readily available at your nearest retail store. These will help in spreading the ice melt evenly.
