The Wonderful Uses of Rock Salt

Rock salt is primarily known as a solution used for deicing and removing snow on the roads.However, it has other purposes as well. It is a mineral form of sodium chloride that we also use in water treatment, animal and chemical industries. Formed by the evaporation of salty sea water rock salt is deposited in dry lake beds, inland marginal seas, bays, and estuaries.

It has been used for animal nutrition, specifically by farmers as a supplement for cattle. It has also been used on plants to provide the missing nutritional needs. Present in the food industry as well, it is used with meat and fish to ensure conservation over time. Rock salt is also used for softening hard water to be used as raw materials. Finally, rock salt is used as an exfoliating agent – offered by many spas in their beauty packages.

Focusing more on its use for deicing and removal of snow, it is important to talk to professionals at Draglam Salt. They know the proper ways of applying it to reduce the risk of environmental damage. Before applying the rock salt, shovel the snow away from the area. After watching the salt melt away the ice, remove the ice with a brush or a shovel. If necessary, apply more salt afterwards. Remember to always monitor the weather conditions to ensure it is cold enough for salt application.

Rock Salt Supplier You Can Depend On

Business owners are not only responsible for servicing their customers, they also have an added task of maintaining their property, which is especially important during harsh winters. After a big snowstorm, business owners have to wake up extra early in order to get to their business to shovel their parking lot and walk-way for their customers. Under occupier’s liability, they are responsible for maintaining the safety of any customer invited onto their property. With this, it is important they are aware of these necessary steps for precaution of any injuries.

While sometimes the actual owner of the property is expected for landscaping and snow removal, sometimes the responsibility is on the tenant (business owner) of the property.  There are many options for business owners to either service another company for snow removal, or they can do it themselves!

Whether the owner decides to contract out snow removal, or purchase from a rock salt supplier, Draglam Salt is a great option!

My Experience with Personal Injury and Finding a Lawyer in Toronto

My Experience with Personal Injury and Finding a Lawyer in Toronto

Back in 2015, I experienced a bad vehicle accident that left me with multiple injuries. Soon after, I started experiencing injuries in my back, restricting me from my marketing job. From a referral from a friend, she suggested I contact a highly recognized Toronto Lawyer Zayouna Law. Worried about my rights within my insurance company, and potential compensation for my loss of work; I was very pleased with my experience at Zayouna Law. The professional staff showed my care, sympathy and commitment during my year long legal process. In the end, I was very satisfied with my settlement, and I felt I received the compensation I deserved – thanks  to the pleasure of working with amazing professionals. Now, I recommend my friends and family who are looking for a Toronto lawyer to contact Zayouna Law for courteous, understanding, and experienced lawyers.

After this experience, I learned multiple lessons in regards to personal injury law. First, I learned the importance of working with a lawyer who you can TRUST and BELIEVE is working in your best interest. Second, a professional lawyer will always help you navigate through the complex legal system, and give you insight on when and how to communicate with your insurance company. Third, this is of most  importance  and crucial to any case: I contacted Zayouna Law very soon  after my accident. You put your case at potential risk the farther time goes by.

My experience with Zayouna Law made the entire process less emotionally straining.  Thanks again to the amazing Toronto lawyers that helped me and my family with our personal injury case.

The Best Way To Clean Hockey Equipment The POG

The Best Way To Clean Hockey Equipment

The winter season also means hockey season! While the family fully supports the children’s love for hockey, what they don’t support is the smell that comes with it. Hockey gear and bags can leave a stale and sweaty odour not only on the equipment but around your house as well.

Do what you can to stop the hockey smell from moving around your entire house with the POG. It acts as an air purifier to remove any air contamination. To remove the hockey smell you have a few options: you can place the POG on a 3-hour cycle inside the hockey bag itself, or hang your sports equipment in a closet and place the POG in the room. During this 3 hour cycle, the POG’s air purifier will naturally destroy viruses and odours to remove bacteria without the use of harsh chemicals, deodorizers, and cleansers.

The POG will work effectively around the strong smelling gear so your family can enjoy the sports without the smell. Invite your friends over without having to worry about them noticing the stink around your home.

If you’re interested in learning more about how The POG works as an air purifier, take a look at their website to find out other ways which The POG works around your home. And how it works effectively and naturally.

Every campaign doesn’t have to contain the same offer or promotions. Keeping the content fresh is another way to attract attention.
