How Ice Destroys Concrete And What You Should Do?

Traction Magic - Salt Free Deicer

Ice is the #1 reason for concrete damage, road erosion, roof problems, and rusting metal. Well, not ice directly, but the deicers. The salt and chloride content in every ice melt or deicer leads to the slow erosion of the concrete surface, thus leading to the need to purchase salt free deicer. An unexpected and heavy snowstorm disrupts regular life and forms a thin layer of ice on the surface, under the heavy layer. But before the onset of a snowstorm, there are a few things we should stock.

So, let us look at how to prepare for a blizzard and what to do after it passes.

  • Prepare an emergency kit prescribed by the American Red Cross society that includes a gallon of water, flashlight, non-perishable items, hand-crank radio, multi-purpose tool, medications, extra cash, blanket, area map, etc.
  • Salt spreader, snow shovel, lock deicer, and salt free deicer are must-haves as emergency supplies in your closet. Keeping all snow and ice removal devices, such as Traction Magic, handy is a boon.
  • Keep a stock of gasoline in an airtight gas can if you run out of fuel in your generator or your car.
  • Keep all your doors and windows tightly locked to avoid any unexpected snow inside the house. But once the blizzard passes, how can you prepare to venture outside the house?
  • Keep your snowblower or electric-powered snow shovel ready to remove heaps of snow from your front yard and driveway.
  • After removing the snow, you need to stay clear of falling on stairs or your driveway while walking. It is best to wear sturdy snow boots to avoid slipping. It would help if you also used a salt-free deicer and traction agent, such as Traction Magic, to help you tread stress-free. 
  • Clear the snow one level at a time and do it systematically. Pile the snow in such a place where it will not block your view nor your car.
