Paw Safe & Chemical Free Ice Melt

Ice melts are an effective way to melt ice on driveways, walkways, and steps. However, if you have pets or young children, they can be harmful to them. Consult a local consultant before using any ice melt this season, or read this guide.

Do you own a pet?

If so, be aware of the dangers that ice melt can pose to your pet. Ice melt can be harmful or fatal if ingested by dogs, cats, and other pets. The following are some tips for keeping your pet safe this winter season:

  •  Prevent your dog from eating a dangerous amount of ice melt
  • Keep the ice melt away from their reach by putting it on a high shelf or in another part of the house
  • If they do ingest any ice melt, call the vet immediately

Many blogs/ companies like USA Paws etc recommend using a chemical-free ice melt.

Concern about kids in the neighborhood

Several issues need to be considered around children around ice melts. First and foremost, you know your own kids best. Are they responsible enough? Do they have any allergies or health problems that could be exacerbated by exposure to the substance?

Second, other children may be an issue. You don’t want your kids coming into contact with someone else’s child who is not yet mature enough to understand warnings or not yet able to comprehend the risks involved in playing with ice melts.

Do you have a concrete walkway/driveway?

If you have a concrete walkway/driveway, you may consider using a different product than rock salt or chemical-based ice melt. Concrete is porous and will absorb water, which could lead to uneven surfaces and cracks in your concrete. Using chemical-ice melt on concrete can also cause damage. Therefore use a chemical-free ice melt on your driveways.

Do you have a color driveway?

Have you recently noticed that your driveway is not just a little darker than it used to be? Is your driveway black or dark gray? If so, this could mean that you are going to have a hard time with ice melt. It is because the chemicals in traditional ice melt will stain the surface of colored driveways. In order to keep your concrete clean and looking like new, it is essential that you find an alternative ice melt that is chemical-free before this winter season starts.

Ice melt can damage your lawn if it’s used too much, too little, or at the wrong time. An expert will know how to apply, so you don’t damage your lawn.
