The winter season in Northeast Ohio means falling temperatures, slippery snow, icy covered surfaces, and rushing to find a supply of salt. Without a pre-winter supply on hand, it could spell trouble once the cold season gets underway. The best and most effective solution is buying bulk deicing salt early because locating it later may be time consuming and difficult. Here are a few benefits you’ll receive from an early purchase.
Rock salt is found underground in mineral deposits of a salt mine. Its mineral name is Halite, and the properties are coarsely ground sodium chloride that ranges between 95% to 99% purity. According to our supplier, Cargill, that type of salt needs little processing and is regularly used in its raw, lightweight form. The rock salt can absorb moisture from the air to induce or sustain dryness. That is why its application during the winter months makes it highly effective and beneficial when melting snow and ice.
