If you’re a Maryland resident, it’s time to prepare your property for the inclement weather ahead. The winter months can be particularly harsh on the East Coast, but homeowners can take certain steps to ensure that their family is safe from harm. Purchasing a quality ice melt is one of the best ways you can protect your property from snow and ice. Luckily, Courtland Hearth and Hardware carries a wide variety of ice melt products.
Be the Early Bird
Don’t wait until there is a foot of snow on the ground to purchase ice melt. Whether you’re safeguarding your home or your business, it’s important to gather ice melt materials sooner rather than later. Experts advise that using ice melt to pretreat surfaces before a storm yields more effective results than applying ice melt only after a storm.
Purchase the Best
When it comes to ice melt products, quality matters. Opting for a cheaper bag, or a low-quality option, may not offer you the best results. Ensure that you choose an ice melt based on your specific needs. For example, if you have a concrete driveway, select a product that’s geared towards concrete temperatures and conditions. If you have a pet, ensure that you purchase an ice melt that’s safe for your furry friend to walk upon.
Protect Your Eyes
Ice melt is made of a variety of chemicals, so it’s important to protect your eyes and hands when you apply it outdoors. Wear protective eyewear and gloves, and use a spreader to accurately apply ice melt to the affected areas of your property. Ice melt could negatively affect some areas of your property, such as grass, so accuracy is crucial.
