Deicing and anti-icing are two different techniques for residential and commercial snow removal. Deicing breaks down the bond between the snow and the surface, making removing it more accessible. This is generally done with chemical deicers such as sodium chloride, which work in cold or wet conditions. On the other hand, anti-icing is preventive; chemical agents prevent adhesive bonds from forming between falling snow and the surfaces on which they land. Both deicing and anti-icing are essential to keep a property safe during winter, but they must be done with great care since both products can damage vegetation, such as grass and shrubs, if not applied correctly.
