Winter is the most wonderful time of the year for many of us here in New Jersey. It’s a time to cozy up by the fire, drink hot cocoa, and spend time with family and friends. But let’s be honest. Winter can also be brutal. 

The freezing temperatures and dangerous icy conditions create treacherous walking and driving conditions.  Throw in all the snow, and it can be hard to enjoy the season unless you LOVE snow.

That’s why we’re big fans of calcium chloride-based ice melt. Using an ice melt product makes your winter safer, more manageable, and a heck of a lot more relaxing. 

Now, let’s get to the 6 benefits of using ice melt this winter…

Makes Your Home Safer

One of the biggest concerns during winter is slips and falls on icy surfaces. But if you treat your sidewalks, steps, and driveway with ice melt, you reduce the risk of falls and injuries. The calcium chloride in the ice melt works by quickly melting ice and creating a layer of protection against refreezing. This means that your sidewalks will be clear of ice so you (and your guests) can walk around safely.

Easy to Use

There are tons of different ice and snow melt products on the market, making it hard to know which one to choose. But don’t worry. We’ve got you covered. We’ve tested tons of different products and only recommend and sell the most effective ice melt product to combat the crazy New Jersey winter weather.

Saves You Time

Shoveling snow is not only annoying but can also be time-consuming, depending on the size of your sidewalk, steps, and driveway. If you have a large area to clear, it could take hours to get the job done. 

But with an ice melt product, you sprinkle it on the ground and let it do its job. This saves you time. You can kick back in the recliner and watch some Hallmark movies or your favorite team. It also lets you get out and enjoy your favorite winter activities without worrying about clearing snow first.

Save Your Back 

Snow shoveling is notoriously tough on your back—and for a good reason. If you’re not careful, all that bending and lifting leads to strain or even severe injuries. If you want to save your back, neck, and spine, ditch the shovel this winter and opt for an ice melt instead. Not only will you prevent injuries, but you’ll also avoid days of post-shoveling soreness and pain.

Preserve Your Property

Using an ice melt helps protect your property. During wet and freezing weather, your driveway, steps, and sidewalks take a beating. Over time, continuous exposure to extreme winter weather conditions degrades the concrete and asphalt, leading to cracks, crumbling, and divots. Using snow and ice melt minimizes the refreezing and reduces the impact of winter on your concrete or asphalt surfaces, making them last longer.
