With winter weather comes an abundance of snow and icy conditions in the D.C. metropolitan area. With this brings areas of concern for property managers and homeowners that want to protect their flooring and carpet from the damaging effects of ice melt residue.

After heavy winter storms, using a neutralizer on flooring and carpet is imperative in order to minimize the effects that ice melt residue has caused from traffic on floors.

Typically ice melt products have a high pH and can even act as a stripper on finished flooring. If you have experienced any sort of sticky scum on your flooring after a winter storm then the culprit is more than likely nasty salt residue.
