Although folks in and around Ruxton are still feeling the heat, September brings a reminder that cold weather is just around the corner. Commercial and residential property owners alike have to be prepared for the snow and ice that Maryland’s winter may bring, and part of that preparedness includes buying, storing, and applying ice melt. Keep these deicing tips in mind and contact Lehnhoff’s Supply for ice melt delivery in Ruxton.
Can You Use Last Season’s Ice Melt?
One question that many homeowners and facility managers often have is whether or not they can still use last season’s deicers. If salts are appropriately stored during the warmer months, last year’s leftovers can certainly be used for the upcoming winter. Leftover ice melt must be stored in a cool, dry place to avoid dissolving, clumping, or hardening. Although clumped-up salt is annoying to work with, it can often still be used. However, if you have any doubts or need a different kind of deicer, Lehnhoff’s Supply offers ice melt delivery to provide you with fresh materials.
Choosing an Appropriate Ice Melt
Selecting a type of deicer is perhaps the most challenging aspect of snow removal in Ruxton. Maryland has a breathtakingly diverse and unique ecosystem, and some salts and chemical compounds found in deicers can harm nearby vegetation and wildlife. Homeowners and property managers must choose deicers that are minimally harmful to the surrounding environment while still effectively melting ice and snow. The experts at Lehnhoff’s Supply carry a wide range of deicers for a variety of applications.
Applying Deicer Correctly
Finally, the key to using deicer effectively is to apply it as directed. Each salt compound has its strengths, and applying an appropriate amount at the right time is critical to its effectiveness. Not only will following directions give you the most bang for your buck, but it can also help prevent ice from building up on your sidewalk or driveway.
