Safe Ice Melt For Concrete

Winter is a season that brings with it some unique challenges. For instance, there are chances of extreme cold, slip-and fall accidents, heavy snowfall, power outages due to high winds etc. You must prepare for the same by following safety measures before heading out into the open during this time of year.

Common Winter Challenges 

  • Hyperthermia

Cold weather can cause a variety of problems, from hypothermia to frostbite. To prevent cold-related injuries, prepare yourself by dressing appropriately for the temperature and limiting your time outdoors.

  • Ice – Slips And Falls, Stuck Car

One of the most dangerous aspects of winter is ice.

The best way to avoid slipping on ice is to use an ice melt or traction agent. If you get stuck in snow or ice, stay in your car and call for help instead of trying to push through it yourself.

  • Shoveling – Overload

Shoveling snow can be great exercise. If you have a heart condition and shoveling is something you are not used to, then you should avoid doing it. This can cause problems such as chest pain or irregular heartbeat.

Here Are Some Of The Ways You Can Prepare For Winter: Winterize Your Home And Car

Winter is a dangerous time for drivers. It is important to take precautions to ensure you stay safe in the winter months.

  • Ice Melt

Ice melt is a great way to keep your walkways and driveways safe for people and vehicles. When it comes to choosing the best ice melter for your home, look for one that melts the ice fast without leaving behind any salt or residue on your driveway, sidewalk, or other areas of your property.

It’s made from minerals found in volcanic remains and is completely safe for your plants, animals, people, and the environment.

  • Traction Agent

To avoid slipping on snow, use a traction agent. The best part of a traction agent is that it works immediately. You don’t have to wait for hours like in the case of ice melts. 

Walk on Ice is scientifically made to increase traction on ice. Hence it is more efficient and effective than sand or kitty litter. Simply rub some granules on the car tires to increase the traction.

Walk on Ice primarily consists of absorbers and gripper granules. Absorbers help to absorb the excess water around the tire, and gripper granules (with their spiky structure) penetrate the ice layer and provide a sand-paper-like effect.

Walk on Ice comes in small handy containers. For regular use, you can also go with Traction Magic instant surface traction agent that comes in comparatively bigger packaging.

  • Emergency Kit

Always keep an emergency kit in your car, including blankets and warm clothes, a candle and matches, water bottles, and food rations for at least 3 days (you can buy these pre-made or make your own).

  • Back Up Batteries

Make sure you have backup batteries for your cellphone charger and any other electronics in case they die while stranded during bad weather. Bring along an extra set of keys that aren’t attached to anything else so they don’t get lost if they fall out of your pocket while walking through snow drifts!
