Winter has its own set of challenges. If you’re a business owner, and you have to prepare yourself with all snow removal equipment, then this article is for you. Your customers’ and employees’ safety is of foremost importance, and with the right tools, you can ensure doing that. While many business owners buy ice melt and salt without giving much thought, you have to be a responsible citizen and use products that won’t harm your property and the environment. 

Slick driveways and sidewalks are a common problem in winter. Being a business owner, you must keep your property, including driveway, sidewalk, stairs, and parking lot clear of ice and snow during peak winters by using a suitable industrial ice melt.

Industrial Ice Melt vs Rock Salt

Rock Salt: As you may already know, rock salt is the chemical composition of sodium chloride. Unlike table salt, it is not purified for human consumption. Its primary function is to lower the freezing point of water forming brine, a mixture of salt and water. However, many businesses overuse salt and damage their property. It corrodes concrete, leaves a whitish residue around, and damages the business premises’ vegetation.

As a business owner, you not only have to take care of melting the ice but creating long-lasting traction that will ease the movement of your customers and employees. Therefore, use an industrial ice melt that is free from chloride and toxins. Safe Thaw is 100% eco-friendly ice melt, comprises modified carbonyl diamide crystals, special glycols, proprietary traction agents, and other natural ingredients. 

Safe Thaw is formulated to perform under challenging weather conditions and is chloride-free and salt-free. Once the crystals hit the icy surface, they leach out a deicing liquid that speeds up the melting process. It penetrates snow and ice molecular structure and does not allow it to refreeze. Since the granules destabilize the ice, it helps keep the business premises ice-free for more extended periods, thus increasing footfall and avoiding any untoward incident. 

It is readily available at any home depot ice melt section or ordered directly from the manufacturer.
