When the winter weather is gone, and the grass is green, the thought of how to best rid your property of potential ice and snow disasters isn’t exactly a high priority. Take this time to get a head start, and know it’s never too early to stockpile your ice melt solutions! Here are some great ways Green Ice Melt can help you get ahead of the winter weather and procure the proper ice melt products for you!
The first thing to know: There are 4 main types of ice melters
- Sodium chloride
- Calcium chloride
- Magnesium chloride and
- Calcium magnesium acetate (CMA)
We, at Green Ice Melt, proudly sell products of the CMA variety, this ice melt product is not only less corrosive to property, but it is also less damaging to the environment as a whole. Each winter, municipalities distribute ton after ton of ice melting products across our roads and business areas, every little bit of rock salt we can take away from that equation is a step in the right direction.
Which product is right for you?
Liquid or granular CMA?
