Icy walkways in the winter time can be problematic and can cause slip and fall accidents snow. It is important to maintain your walkways free from ice and snow during winter season. Here are some helpful tips to maintain your walkways clean and avoid accidents:
Use Rock Salt during frigid cold temperatures – If the temperature is above 15 degrees Fahrenheit, Rock salt lowers freezing point of water so ice will not form once it gets much colder.
Shovel Snow – Be sure to shovel snow as quickly as possible. Leaving snow on your walkways increases the chances of ice to form.
Sand – If there is ice and you do not have access to any rock salt, sand can be a great alternative. It helps improve traction and will be able to get rid of ice in your walkways.
