As pretty as snow looks from the window, it can be problematic to businesses and property owners when it makes the parking lots unusable and dangerous. Snow and Ice Control is particularly necessary for businesses where the influx of customer traffic is continuous. With 16 years of experience in lawn care and snow and ice control services in Anchorage, AK, Kelly Lawn and Landscaping considers liquid deicing an excellent way to provide a superior product when compared to what the Anchorage market has had to settle with for years.
According to the professional snow and ice removal company, liquid deicing offers a number of advantages to businesses, such as:
- Improved parking lot conditions: In freezing temperatures, the moisture from snow can refreeze into ice. The icy formation creates slick surfaces on paved areas and becomes a hazard for motorists and pedestrians. Businesses concerned about liability protection and improved use of their parking lots throughout the winter months can now use liquid deicing as one more tool to prevent this ice build up form occurring. Kelly Lawn and Landscaping is proud to offer this innovative treatment in the Anchorage area.
- Long Term Cost Savings: While road salts have commonly been used for deicing, Kelly Lawn and Landscaping has found liquid remedies to be more cost-effective for businesses. By pre-treating before the snow begins, ice build up form car traffic packing down the snow can be reduced. Plowing becomes more effective as well because the plow can do a better job of clearing back down to pavement. The need for traction sand or gravel is eliminated which is saves on clean up cost in the spring. Slip and Fall claims are costly. The liability exposure to a business or property owner is drastically reduced when bare pavement can be provided throughout the winter instead of settling with having a parking lot covered in snow and ice.
- It Works Even In Extremely Cold Weather: Liquid solutions can be treated with additives to withstand sub-zero temperatures. Their non-hardening nature minimizes wastage and brings the price down significantly when compared to applying granular ice melt. Moreover, liquids are needed in lesser quantities since they cover a larger area than solids. Although liquid treatments may seem counterproductive to prevent freezing, their practical usage suggests otherwise. Rock salt becomes ineffective when temperatures drop below 15º F. In contrast, the enhanced liquid deicers have the capability to work even in extremely cold conditions. These products reach deeper and help break the compact bonds of snow and ice, delivering guaranteed results for your business.
- Reduce Liability: Liability of slip and falls on your property can be greatly reduced by exposing bare pavement, more often. Many property owners know all too well the potential cost of a slip & fall. According to the National Safety Council (NSC), over 9 million disabling slip-and-fall injuries occur every year in the U.S. alone. The average cost per slip/fall accident exceeds $20,000. These claims can be easily avoided by eliminating the ice and snow pack. Call today for more information on how to protect your property and your wallet.
