GroundWorks is UREA FREE!

GroundWorks Natural™ Icemelter is a pet-friendly icemelter, and it does not contain urea (sometimes listed as Carbonyl Diamide or Carbamide Resin), as Urea is very harmful to the environment even with very little amount.

Urea based ice melts are generally the ones labeled as safe for use around pets. However, with a practical working temperature of around -3.9°C / 25°F, urea is not a very effective ice melting product. Whereas GroundWorks will go down to – 23°C / -9°F, it melts the ice as much as it protects your pets’ paws.

Moreover, when urea washes off of driveways, it often ends up in the most nearby stream or river. Urea contains nitrogen and when released into the environment turns to ammonia, which can be quite toxic to aquatic life even in small amounts.

So when it comes to pet-safe icemelter, eco-friendly GroundWorks Natural™ Icemelter is your top choice!

The dangers of Calcium Chloride

It may be 2016, but there’s still companies out there trying to market their calcium chloride icemelters as eco and pet friendly. Not only is this disingenuous to the consumer, it could put pets at risk. Calcium chloride is caustic which means it will burn skin on contact, making it unsafe to use around animals. Not to mention all the damage it will cause to the surrounding vegetation.

A much safer alternative is GroundWorks Natural™. GroundWorks™ is completely safe on skin and paws, and can even be safely ingested. And since it is fertilizer based, it will help benefit plants and shrubs while being tough on ice. Find out more at XYNYTH.COM

Its not rocket science!

Consumers are often in a rush when applying icemelter and usually do not follow the instructions.  Icemelters help to remove ice by breaking it down – first into smaller chunks, and finally into a liquid. Icemelters should not be confused with snow removal. Icemelters or deicers are designed to melt and break down the ice accumulations not the snow accumulations. In situations where there is ice and snow build up, it is best to remove the snow, using mechanical means such as shovels or snow blowers, and then use an ice melter to break down the ice into slush.  Most of our products only require ¼-1/2 cup per square yard/meter.  If in doubt, follow the instructions!

Winter is still coming!

It looks like winter is finally arrived in the rest of the continent and some models are predicting it could be here a while. According to sources like the Weather Network and NOAA, We may see a return of the Arctic outflow which could push temperatures back down to levels seen the last two years in the east and extending far south. Combined with El Nino effects that are bringing more storms to the east coast could result in some major snow events before all is done. The El Nino effects in the west may be keeping some temperatures above normal but in many markets this is resulting in more freeze/thaw cycles as the temperatures keep jumping back and forth. This could work in our favour as this type of cycle tends to require more ice melt than constant deep cold temperature levels.
