Preparing Your Driveway For The Blizzard

preparing for a blizzard

The biggest reason for concrete damage, erosion of roads and, and slip and fall accidents in winters is the snow and deicers. Chemical-based ice melt or deicers leads to the slow erosion of the concrete surface. 

In this article, we will discuss how you can protect your driveway and other property from chemical-based deicers. An unexpected and heavy snowstorm disrupts regular life and forms a thin layer of ice on the surface, under the heavy layer. 

So, let us discuss all possible ways of preparing for the blizzard and what to do after it passes.

  • Get ready with an emergency kit. It should contain a gallon of water, flashlight, non-perishable items, hand-crank radio, multi-purpose tool, medications, extra cash, blanket, area map, etc.
  • Another thing that you must have apart from the emergency kit is a salt-free ice melt. Although salt-free deicers are must-haves as emergency supplies, they deserve a separate mention.

  • Apart from the emergency kit and a salt-free deicer, you must have traction agents in sufficient quantities. Traction Magic by Gaia Enterprises Inc is one such agent that’s composed of all-natural ingredients and is safe on all types of driveways.
  • 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.

What To Do After the Blizzard Has Passed?

· 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.

Adding Traction On The Surfaces

Traction Magic by Gaia Enterprises Inc is one of the best ways that can help you walk on slippery surfaces without slipping. You can use this on your sidewalks, steps, or as instant traction for your car too. 

How it works- Traction Magic contains spiky granules that help in forming a firm grip on any icy surface. The best part of using Traction Magic by Gaia Enterprises Inc is that you will not find any residue on the sole of your shoes. The granules absorb the surface ice and water and lock themselves in the ice creating a non-skid surface to travel by car or foot. Its all-natural crystals are 100% environment-friendly and do not harm kids and pets.
