In this article, we’ll answer some of the most commonly asked questions about snow melter including concrete safe ice melt so you can have a clear idea about how the product works and if it’s worth a try.

Let start:

#1 How Much Does It Cost?

This can be a little tricky to answer because different concrete safe ice melt manufacturers have different prices. We can, however, say that ice melt is typically a cheap product to buy and can help you save money, especially when compared to alternatives like using a snow blower or hiring the services of a professional.

For a more specific answer, have a look at our products starting as low as $19.95. We offer human, pet, plant, and concrete safe ice melter.

#2 Does Ice Melt Work On All Types Of Snow?

If you’re looking for a one-word answer, then it’s a resounding yes. Ice melt works on both types of snow – dry or wet. However, one product might not be suitable for both types.

This is because dry snow is harder than wet snow, hence it can be a little slow and difficult to melt. 

You should buy a product depending on the type of snow your region receives. Also, it is best that you don’t let snow sit for too long as it hardens the snow, making it difficult to remove or melt.

#3 Can I Use Ice Melt Around My House?

Yes, you can use ice melt around your house; however, make sure to pick a concrete safe ice melt so that it causes no harm to your property. 

Some products contain harmful chemicals that might be good at melting snow but can be very harmful to the structure of your property. These include options that contain salts, so make sure to pick a ‘salt-free’ ice melter.

#4 Is It Bad For Animals?

Generally speaking, ice melt is not very good for animals including cats and dogs. They can result in stomach issues, allergic reactions, burns, and more serious problems. However, the good thing is that companies like Safe Paw make ice melter that is safe for animals, even if ingested. 

If there are animals in or around your property then it is best that you choose a product like Safe Paw. Most products on the market contain some form of rock salts such as calcium chloride, potassium chloride, and magnesium chloride.

We are aware of the risks of using salts and produce ice melter that contain no harmful elements.

#5 How Long Does It Take To Melt Snow?

As mentioned earlier, it depends on the quantity and type of snow. The more snow there is, the longer it will take to melt. Similarly, harder snow takes longer to melt away. Nonetheless, in most cases, snow will begin to melt in minutes.
