Our commercial ice control products are all eco-friendly. Our Lakewood ice dam removal company has always had an interest in environmental sustainability. While harsh chemicals work great for commercial ice control, they can also be detrimental to the water supply, plants, animals and the environment. The chemicals used in snow and ice removal products make the treatments effective, but the residuals can linger for years. Our ice removal services in Lakewood can be performed using eco-friendly products that are less harsh on the environment.
Using rock salt, also known as sodium chloride, for snow and ice removal introduces dissolved foreign particles in the liquid, which boosts the colligative property of the water and lowers the freezing temperature below 32 degrees. This allows ice to continue to melt while preventing ice from forming. Rock salt works best when temperatures are at least 15 degrees but work down to about negative nine degrees. Rock salt is the most common substance used for commercial ice control in Lakewood.
