Snow & Ice Pretreatment
Facilities must dedicate time and resources every winter season for snow and ice removal, but one way to minimize costs and speed up the commercial snow removal is by using anti-icing products on walkways and parking lots.
Charlotte Snow Plow offers this service which allows for local commercial businesses to be prepared for the winter mix.
Benefits of Ice and Snow Pretreatment
By treating with anti-icing chemicals in anticipation of a snow storm you can make precautions towards preventing black ice or frost from forming. Traction will also be retained in parking lots and walkways long after the storm has resided. It is also possible to treat surfaces immediately after snowfall has occurred and get similar results but you must be proactive. In the early stages of the storm treatment can be effective even with a small layer of snow or ice.
Types of Treatment:
- Potassium chloride
- Potassium acetate
- Calcium chloride
- Magnesium chloride
- Calcium-magnesium acetate
Taking action before a winter storm as a precaution can greatly diminish time that your business or facility is inaccessible or when conditions are less than ideal.
