I found a simple way to make sure that your sidewalks are ice free this winter!

We are expecting a wintery mix of snow and ice this week here in the Tri-State. Now is the perfect time to plan ahead and treat your sidewalks to prevent a possible injury from slipping on ice. As someone who is very accident prone, I know that walking over ground covered in ice is a very dangerous game to play...and it usually ends with you getting hurt somehow.

As of now, it looks like we can expect this winter weather to be making its way to the area late Tuesday Night through Thursday. The main focus on this weather will be significant freezing rain and ice accumulation. So you're going to want to treat your sidewalk/deck before the ice makes its way to the Tri-State.

Sure, you can go to the store and buy a bag of salt. However, did you know that after a while, that salt will eat away at your concrete? Not only that, but what happens if the stores are sold out? Thankfully, I have a remedy for you that you can put together in less than five minutes.
