Salt, Ice Melt

A quick comment on the application of ice melt or salt.

It is not necessary to match each individual snow flake with a granule of salt or ice melt.

Over salting or de-icing can lead to a number of collateral damages.

1. damage to your sidewalk or pavements
2. damage to your interior carpeting from walk-in traffic
3. damage to your floors, marble, vct, terrazzo, brick, pavers etc.
4. increased indoor pollutants from compounds that dry and then become airborn

Just a few pre-winter warnings from your local custodial service.
