Different ice melt products work differently and are suitable for different temperatures. Many homeowners think homemade ice melter works better. While homeowners have used homemade ice melter to melt ice, it is only sometimes safe. To help you battle this problem, Safe Thaw introduced a revolutionary ice melt product with special surfactants and glycol admixtures to melt ice quickly. Its unique ice-melting boosters help instantly break the icy layer on the concrete and any other surface.

Safe Thaw was created as the ice management solution for tough winter environments. Ideal in commercial and industrial properties, shops, government agencies, bridges, and construction.

Why You Should Avoid Using A Homemade Ice Melter

Don’t be fooled by the homemade ice melter.

They’re not good for your pipes, and they can actually make them worse.

The reason? They don’t melt the ice fast enough to prevent it from freezing again when it comes in contact with your pipes. That means you’ve got a blockage that’s harder to break up and that could cause more damage down the road.

Several products in the market claim to have natural ingredients and are safe for the environment. We may often purchase the products and regret them later. Any product that comprises natural ingredients without salt and heavy chloride blends are safe for the driveway. Most products in the market have calcium chloride ice melt.

Safe Thaw is an ice melt product that has solved several homeowners’ problems.

What Is The Application Rate Of Safe Thaw?

Safe Thaw is best applied before the storm to avoid the snow from sticking to the ground. If you can apply it midway through the snowfall, it will help to accelerate the snow removal process later. Once the snowfall stops, you can clear your driveway with a shovel to remove excess ice snow. In case there is a formation of an icy layer on the driveway, spread the ice melt liberally on the driveway and see the ice melt quickly. 

You only need a pound of Safe Thaw per 100 sq. ft.; once applied, you can relax for the next 72 hours. Even if you have another snowfall, you know your driveway is protected with an additional layer of ice melt.

The application rate of every ice melt differs, and it is best to read the manual before using it.
