When the snow falls and it stays there for a long time, there is a chance of ice settling. By settling, we mean forming ice into layers that are thick and black, that look just like roads but should you tilt your head, the shimmer will belie a particular danger: skidding and slipping because of ice. Normally, these occurrences manifest themselves in benign movement, a quick couple of inches in either direction, but sometimes ice can be more dangerous and we are there to help or do de-icing remedy those eventualities.
When Should You Call?
The short answer is – whenever you feel that it is necessary. There are no set rules about this. Actually, a thin layer of fixed ice is as dangerous in some circumstances as a thicker layer. We are there for either possibility and we want you to know that you shouldn’t discriminate when it comes to ice. Even in situations that do not require us, we still believe that it is better to be safe than to be sorry.
Call us, we will arrive and even if we weren’t needed in the proper sense, we will still sleep better at night knowing that we have prepared you as best as we can. We hope that you feel the same.
If you are an individual or a family, then this is even more so the case. Here’s the thing. Most people are not covered by a huge amount of insurance, not like businesses are anyway.
Should you have an accident and it is because of the ice, it will be put down as a force majeure and you won’t be able to claim much back on it. Therefore, at the slightest hint of ice and the slightest ice prospect of damage, call on us to sprinkle some of our magic dust on the ground and sort it out before it becomes a problem.
Salt and Sand
Both salt and sand work in amazing ways to remove the danger of ice. Essentially, it is all about friction. This means that whenever the ice is lubricated enough to bypass friction, you will end up slipping and sliding because of ice.
Whilst salt raises the temperature that water freezes at and thus, avoids ice, and breaks up the ice and ice causes friction even in the most slippy of services. Both of these chemicals are things that we have a lot of. Therefore, never hesitate to give us a call. We are always able to come out and perform a great de-icing and salting service for you, whenever you need us, day or night.
Commercial and Other
However, we also work with commercial clients as well. This is something we are able to do because we have the tools and the manpower to handle jobs that are on a slightly larger scope.
We understand the importance of running a business day to day and we understand the responsibility of government bodies to look after the public. Therefore, if you need work done for either of these reasons, we are the Rochester ice contractors that provide a solution to your problem to the ice.
