Top 3 Reasons You Should Use De-Icing Products Before It Snows, Northfield Center, Ohio

In Ohio, winter approaching means you should be stocked and ready for snowfall and ice accumulation. When using de-icing products, it’s important to pretreat your sidewalks, driveways, and entryways before a storm hits. Below are the top 3 reasons why it’s crucial to use sidewalk salt or other deicing products before it snows.

Why You Should Pretreat Sidewalks & Entryways Before Snowfall

Increases Its Effectiveness

De-icing products and salt work best when they’ve been applied preemptively because they’re most effective when put directly on the ground. If you treat your slippery surfaces after a winter storm, the deicing salt will deplete what’s there and prevent ice from forming if it’s applied soon enough. However it may still be slick, especially if there was substantial snowfall.

Saves You From Dealing With Ice

De-icing products won’t be as effective if they just sit on top of the ice, and chipping it away requires significant effort and time. Save yourself the backache, and get ahead of ice by pretreating your walkways. 

Prevents Accidents

The number one reason to pretreat your commuting surfaces before snowfall is to avoid accidents. Ice poses a significant hazard by increasing the chance of slips and falls, which is a liability if you’re a business owner and a concern if you’re a homeowner, especially for children and elderly residents. Prevent a dangerous fall by pretreating your sidewalks. Your friends and neighbors will be grateful that you did.
