It's a Safety Thing

It's easy to see why de-icing is such a big deal. Ice is a danger--and often an invisible one. De-icing helps keep visitors and employees safe, reducing your liability (and proving to customers that you're community-minded and detail-oriented).

The Right Amount Matters

It's important to use just the right amount of salt for your asphalt, or you could end up creating new problems while trying to solve the old ones. Salt also needs to be spread evenly to be effective. That's why it's best to let the pros do the de-icing!

Avoid Potential Damage 

Remember that de-icing salt and chemicals can potentially cause damage to asphalt, landscaping, building exteriors, and even indoor flooring if not handled with care. When managed correctly, though, de-icing is safe for your property as well as your visitors.
