When we think of snow and ice removal, we almost always think of addressing the snow and ice that has already formed on a property. But what if there was a way to prevent the buildup of ice on your business’s driveway, parking lot, sidewalk, and entryway? To get ahead of the problem? If it were possible to do so, wouldn’t it be easier to prevent ice from forming than it would be to remove it once it had already formed?
Smart Scapes LLC is an industry leader in snow and ice removal and snow and ice prevention. Our cutting-edge techniques for preventing the buildup of ice via snow and ice control lies in our ability to use ice pretreatments.
Ice pretreatments involve the use of new technology to guard ground-level surfaces against the buildup of ice. That means using liquid deicing agents to coat a paved or hardscaped surface with a thin layer of material which will prevent the accumulation of ice on that surface. This approach is further complemented by thorough and regular snow plowing to remove accumulated snow as soon as it collects on the surface.
An ice pretreatment is a chemical that is mixed into water and sprayed onto a parking lot, entryway, sidewalk, or any other surface where people will drive their cars or walk. Once applied, the water-diluted ice pretreatment spreads across the paved surface. The water quickly evaporates due to the pretreatment chemicals, leaving a thin coating of dried pretreatment on the paved surface. Just like that, the surface is fully coated and ready to melt any impending snow or freezing rain that might touch it.
The layer of pretreatment acts as a barrier between freezing events and the pavement beneath. Snow, hail, sleet, or freezing rain could strike against the pretreatment, but it won’t break through and attach to the pavement underneath. The precipitation hits the pretreatment and dries right there, keeping paved surfaces free of ice, standing water, snow, slush, etc.
Our process for applying and maintaining pretreatments is unique and professional. Here’s how we do it:
Business owners who attempt to do their snow and ice removal become frustrated and overwhelmed with the process. Not only is removing snow and ice on one’s own a backbreaking and challenging chore, but it is also dangerous. Better leave it to the experts at Smart Scapes LLC.
