Preparing for the First Snowfall

As always, the Summer months have flown by way too fast, the Fall air is quickly turning brisk, and before you know it Winter will be here again. Doesn’t it seem like we just the shovels and plows away? As much as none of us want to think about snow falling anytime soon, it’s always better to be prepared. If you are responsible for any sort of property, whether it be the parking lot of your business, sidewalks in front of a restaurant or apartment complex, keeping customers and residents safe in the snow should always be a top priority. Now’s the time to start thinking about products you’ll need to order to get ready for the long stormy months ahead.

Now’s The Time

You don’t want to wait until the first snowfall to realize that you need ice melt. By that time, the sidewalks will already be icy with slip hazards everywhere. The liability of having someone fall and hurt themselves on your property is not worth the risk. Ordering your ice melt far enough in advance will assure that you’ll be ready when the snow does decide to make its first appearance of the season. Additionally, pretreating your surfaces will make the ice melt much more effective.

Choose Wisely

Ice melt is not something you want to skimp on. Using cheap ice melt can leave your sideways just as icy and dangerous, and can actually cost you more money by using more product. As a general rule of thumb, 2-4 ounces of the product should be used per square yard. If ice is not melting after using a sufficient amount of product, you may have chosen the wrong one. Using cheap ice melts can also cause damage to your landscape, as well as your building and flooring inside. Keep in mind that much of that ice melt will be tracked indoor on people’s shoes, so you want it to be a safe product. SNO-PLOW is a great option, as it is safe on floors and carpets, and will not cause harm to vegetation such as trees or your lawn. Since the granules are green, you decrease the chances of over-applicating, which is the major cause of tracking problems. It also works up to 3 times faster, making your sidewalks and parking lots safer, quicker.
