With another bought of snow approaching next week it’s the best time to decide which de-icing salt will be best for your home.
If the temperatures are below freezing and you are seeking excellent traction for your walkways and driveways, then Safe -T-Salt is the brand. Thinking of making ice cream? Safe-T-Salt is safe to use.
Calcium Chloride Pellets/Flakes gives off heat while dissolving, which speeds up the melting process. Calcium Chloride works quickly because it attracts moisture from the surrounding area and quickly turns into a solution. It continues to be effective even when the temperatures drop below -25 °Fahrenheit.
Searching for a pet friendly product? Blizzard Wizard is pet friendly and continues to provide an ‘ice-shield’ for upcoming storms. It is 30% to 40% less corrosive than rock salt and delivers aggressive melting power to -20 °F.
Our last suggestion is Snow Glo. This de-icing ‘salt’ is green-tinted, high performance that contains sodium chloride, calcium and magnesium chloride, Potassium Chloride, Urea, and CMA for faster, colder temperature melting than regular rock salt. The purpose for the green-tint is for people to see coverage on ice and packed snow. Minimal to no staining will occur once melted.
