Ice Melts: How They Work

Ice Melt Safe For Pets

Everyone has a different way of choosing how to get rid of ice from their sidewalks and driveways. Some people prefer to use salt, others prefer sand or kitty litter, and still others choose to use ice melts made for the purpose. Ice melts are convenient because they come in a bag that you just sprinkle over your walkway or driveway before the snow falls. They work by releasing tiny particles that melt into water when they come into contact with moisture in the air. All you need to make sure is to use an ice melt safe for pets, people and property. And use it in the right way

Manually remove soft, fresh snow

This step is best done before using an ice melt, so you don’t have to worry about picking it up later. If your driveway or sidewalk is covered in snow, do this:

Use a broom for hard surfaces like wood or metal siding. A broom will help clear away wet and loose piles of snow, but it won’t work on deep drifts of compacted snow that are frozen together into one solid mass.

Apply ice melt

Now, apply ice melt to them. Be sure not to use more than is necessary; too much will be wasted and may even cause damage.

Wait until the ice melt product dissolves all ice and snow.

Allow the ice melt product to completely dissolve any remaining ice or snow. Do not use a hose to wash away the ice melt, nor should you sweep it away, brush it away, or use a shovel to remove it. As long as the product was applied at least 24 hours before anticipated freezing temperatures and properly maintained throughout the winter season, there is no need for additional application until springtime.
