Winter is coming and soon the streets will be covered with thick layers of snow. Of course, your driveway, walkway, porch and stairs are no exception either. Clearing snow off your property can be a tedious chore. This is particularly true if you’re doing it manually with just a shovel or a snowblower. Luckily, you can now buy a snow and ice preemptive treatment to prevent these winter elements from building up.
An Easier and More Effective Way to Clear Snow off Your Property
The de-icing treatment package includes a sprayer and a gallon of the pre-treatment solution. Since it’s a pre-treatment solution, you may spray it on areas where you don’t want snow and ice to accumulate even before a snowstorm hits.
The solution will then help prevent snow from sticking to these areas for up to two weeks. As such, this will result in easier snow removal with less scraping. You can also apply it to exposed areas when the snow starts to fall. This will inhibit snow and ice accumulation to only two inches.
The sprayer runs on four D batteries, so you don’t have to exert any pressure when using it. In addition, it can hold up to one gallon of the included solution. A gallon of the pre-treatment solution can provide the same coverage as a 50-pound bag of conventional road salt. Unlike typical road salt, this solution is safe for pets and plants. Plus, it’s water-soluble, biodegradable, and non-staining.
This de-icing treatment is not just for residential use. As per the product description, state governments also use the same treatment on major roads and streets. Hence, you can be sure that this product really does the job of clearing ice and snow off surfaces.
