Secrets For Removing Snow And Ice From Your Driveway


how to get ice melt off concrete

Winter is here, and it’s time to get your house ready for snow and ice. If you live in a snowy climate, like Maine or Minnesota, you know that clearing away all that white stuff can be a major pain.

It’s been days since you last used your driveway, and now it’s covered in snow. You need to get out of the house and go to work or school, but first, you’ve got to clean up your driveway and car. Now what? We’ll tell you how to melt ice off the cement.

If you have a small amount of ice on your concrete, it’s probably best to just let it dry and then sweep it up or hose it off. However, if there’s an area that has several inches of ice on it, you’ll need a more thorough cleaning method.

Safe Thaw - Best Ice Melt For Asphalt

Safe Thaw

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.

Use a shovel to clear snow (and ice) from your car. It’s much faster than using an ice scraper or brush, so keep one handy for clearing off wet slush. Not only will this help prevent damage from occurring while driving, but it will also make it easier for other people who drive on your street/in front of your house after you leave home later in the day!

How To Melt Ice Off Cement In A Safe Way

DON’T salt and sand: These products melt away ice by lowering their freezing point below 32 degrees Fahrenheit—but they also lower pavement temperature significantly below freezing point as well (which isn’t good).

Instead, Use Safe Thaw: 

Safe Thaw is a great natural ingredient product that is 100% safe for the environment, landscape, and cars! Now, that’s cool. Safe Thaw has a patented urea-modified formula that does not scratch the windshield or erode the surface, making it a preferred choice for several homeowners. It comprises unique glycols and special surfactants that are gentle on any surface, including asphalt, concrete, and glass.

It has no corrosive effect on concrete surfaces as salt does; instead, it absorbs moisture into its crystals which helps prevent further ice build-up around them afterward too! With this product by your side, you need not worry about how to get ice melt off the concrete.

The first thing to remember is that the ice is going to be slippery. You need to take extra care when walking out onto it. Don’t rush, and don’t try to do too much at once. Your best bet is probably just taking your time with each step until you reach solid ground again!
