Ice Control and Removal FAQ
What do you use to melt ice?
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.
Does salt stop ice from melting?
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.
Can I get rid of snow quickly?
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.
What does ice control include?
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.
