You may well find that your yard, patio, driveway, steps or paths need clearing in a harsh winter and ice melt will break down your ice and snow very quickly.
Using ice melt in these conditions will prevent slipping and can reduce accidents. This is especially important if you are a business and have visitors as you may have a duty of care towards them and may be obliged to make sure your outdoor areas are safe.
You don’t have to wait until it snows. A decent supply of ice melt kept somewhere dry and secure will bring great piece of mind, and is an important as part of a business continuity plan, keeping you going when crises strike. Making sure you have a supply, ready to go, means you will be prepared, without a huge cost.
