In British Columbia, our salmon population is notably affected by salt water runoff. While many ice melt products will advertise being safe for pets or the environment, it’s important to note that these claims aren’t always true and a pet safe ice melt can still cause your pets paws to hurt, or the ice melt might only be environmentally safe for a short period of time. This is why other safety measures for your pets, like a cleaning station at the door, and using the right amount of salt is important when doing ice control.

The biggest thing to keep in mind when applying your own ice melt product is that you should only use what you need. Too commonly, here in British Columbia, do we see residents and businesses laying down a thick layer of salt. Your walkways should not feel like you are walking over a rock bed by the time you are done with it, nor should the salt completely cover your walkway. A thin, light layer to start, followed by another application later will give you the best ice control results if you’re doing it by yourself. Let the salt do its job before over-applying. You can always apply more if need be, but applying too much will cause damage.
