How to control Ice – when to use salt vs rock chip

As we learn, we also like to teach!  Our team uses ice melt in a variety of ways but our approach may help you this winter.

Rock chip – we use this as a spread after completing ice removal, this helps to ensure ice does not build up to be smooth and slippery.

Ice Melt – our team spreads this before completing ice removal.  The salt breaks up and begins the melting of the ice.  This allows for us to chip it away and haul it our easier.

Pro Tip:  clean up any left over ice melt, this well help to discourage more ice from forming as new snow falls come.  Rock chip should be spread on bare concrete to help prevent ice build up.
