The snowmaking a beautiful white blanket over our roads and sidewalks, winter storms, cosy fires and quality time indoors, this winter season is bound to be a great one. That is of course if you make sure to keep up on your de-icing. The worst part about this season is how icy and slippery everything can get, and how potentially dangerous that ice can be. However, fear not, because we here at Brodi have a comprehensive guide on how to survive winter, how to get through the treacherous snow and ice. So that you can enjoy all the best parts of winter without having to worry about the dangers.

Some of Winter’s Worst offenders

We’ve already discussed in another article which businesses might be affected by winter’s icy touch, however, we should also probably discuss what kinds of problems you can run into during this coldest of seasons. Everything from issues with ice to issues with salt, although it is certainly beautiful winter can wreak havoc on one’s business if they’re not properly prepared. Let Brodi guide you through some of the biggest difficulties any business can run into during the winter:

  • A frozen windshield. We’ve been over the frozen windshield before, but it is really worth repeating how much of a pain a frozen windshield can be for any business. Especially those businesses that drive every day, like tow trucks, emergency services, the transportation industry and delivery people to name a few. There are many tricks and tips on the internet to keeping your windshield ice-free this winter, but none are as effective as a good ol’ de-icer spray.
  • Salt stains. There’s nothing worse than having salt stains all over your business. The winter is full of salts, sands and other foreign debris that will stain your business’ surfaces. Whether they litter the carpet, car mats, brick, tile, concrete or stone, salt stains just scream that your business is unprofessional and unprepared. Make sure to get a salt-removing solution this winter to keep your business looking good.
  • Snow and Ice in unwanted areas. Here it is, the most inconvenient part of any winter– the overload of snow and ice. The combination of the two is gorgeous when it hangs off trees, however, it’s not so pretty when it’s in a high traffic area. Snow and ice mean slipping, which means at best a loss in productivity and at worst a lawsuit. Your best bet is to grab something that will melt the snow, so you and your business can avoid any ice-related nastiness.
