Are You Making These Common Ice Melt Mistakes?

There’s more to ice melt than simply tossing it onto your sidewalk and waiting for it to work its magic. Using it the wrong way can results in messy and dangerous consequences, so follow these tips to avoid some of the most common ice melt mistakes. 

Mistake 1: Not Using Ice Melt 

If you think buying and using ice melt is a waste of money, think again! The expense of buying a few bags each season is nothing compared to the costs your business may incur should someone slip and fall on your property. Stay safe by wisely investing in ice melt this winter. 

Mistake 2: Using Too Much Ice Melt 

When it comes to ice melt, less is often more. Applying too much can harm plants and grass in the surrounding area, and it won’t actually help melt ice any better. Remember that a little bit goes a long way! 

Mistake 3: Choosing the Wrong Type 

Not all ice melts are the same. Different types have different spread rates, ingredients, melting speeds and melting temperatures. We are happy to recommend the best ice melt in Boston for your needs — just give us a call today at 508-588-1835 to talk to our experts. 

Mistake 4: Waiting Too Long 

Applying ice melt on top of snow won’t do the trick. Instead, keep an eye on the weather and spread ice melt before a storm hits. In worst case scenarios, when you don’t know a storm is coming, apply it right before shoveling or before precipitation freezes.
