Why is salt used in the winter time?
Rock salt is economical to purchase in large amounts. It is readily available and is an effective tool for keeping our surfaces clear of ice and snow. Yet, it is very important to manage the usage in order to reduce the negative impact that rock salt may have on our environment.
Salt can have damaging costs for all of us. As an individual user, it could affect our clothes, shoes, animal friends, lawns, gardens, and vehicles. As a community it can damage sidewalks, roads, buildings, and bridges and can lead to increased maintenance costs.
Kissner has a solution, but first let’s look at some of the effects of rock salt:
On our urban environment . . .
- Buildings: outside structures (bricks/concrete/sidewalks), doorways and flooring may become damaged, increasing repair costs.
- Vehicles (cars/trucks): salt can accelerate rusting, causing damage and increasing repair costs.
- Clothing: salt can stain and potentially ruin footwear and clothing.
