During the difficult winter months, making sure you have an experienced and dedicated commercial snow and ice management service provider is absolutely essential for preventing slowdown of business due to weather conditions. In addition, commercial ice control and removal is absolutely crucial to protect the safety of your employees and their vehicles.
According to the Snow and Ice Management Association, the average injury claim for a pedestrian slip and fall on ice in a parking lot is $18,000 to $30,000, and the average cost of a workers’ compensation claim is even higher. Any smart and effective snow and ice management plan should include commercial ice control and removal services, such as the use of liquid deicer prior to severe weather.
Our team of experienced professionals will provide you with the most comprehensive snow and ice management services, including the most effective preventive deicing equipment such as deicers and/or any more natural alternatives, depending on your unique commercial needs.

Depending on your sites’ needs and concerns, we can provide a variety of powerful and effective deicing equipment. Best used as a preventive measure, liquid deicer lowers the freezing point of ice and snow, essentially creating a barrier between the pavement and precipitation. Granular rock salt is also effective, and Earth Development Inc. has stockpiles in order to hedge against countrywide shortages. When plant and animal safety is a priority, we can use calcium chloride and magnesium chloride.
Salt lowers the freezing point of ice and snow, forcing the ice to melt and preventing the liquid from refreezing. The higher the concentration of dissolved salt in the liquid, the lower its freezing point. So no, salt does not stop ice from melting.
Earth Development Inc. has the equipment, experience, and manpower to remove snow and ice as quickly as possible from your facility. However, safety is always of primary importance as well, so we focus on being smart and efficient rather than reckless.
Ice control is a two-pronged process, and in many respects, ice prevention is more important than the ice removal process. The use of liquid deicer prior to the onset of storms can effectively prevent ice buildup on sidewalks, roadways, and parking lots, if applied effectively and on time. We are always monitoring the weather and stay prepared to administer the liquid deicer before a severe storm hits.
