Don’t Wait!

Stock up on ice melt before you need it. Nothing is worse than getting surprised by a snow storm and not having it on hand. It’s also important to apply ice melt before a storm strikes, not just during or after it.

Use the Right Kind and Amount of Ice Melt

Using the right product for your application and environment will dictate how much you need, but in general, you should use two to four ounces of ice melt per square yard. Choose products made for your environment. We can recommend the products that will work best in New England\’s temperatures and weather conditions.

Protect Yourself

Use caution when applying ice melt. If you are using a calcium chloride product, wear protective gloves and eyewear to stay safe.

Use Floor Matting

If ice melt is a first line of defense against slips and falls, floor matting is the second. The right kind of floor matting will reduce the likelihood of falls while protecting your floors from snow, debris, moisture and ice melt.

Store Ice Melt Properly

Keep your ice melt in airtight containers, and stow them away from sunlight, air and moisture to avoid hardening and degrading the product.
