Brine Application & Snow Clearance
Local authorities are requiring more effective measures to prevent dangerous road and pavement conditions. Using salt brine, which is any liquid salt mixture, before anticipated snowfall was discovered to be more effective than using solid rock salt.
Brines have the same melting characteristics of solid rock salt, but since it is applied in liquid form, the salt can begin to work immediately. The brines are also more effective in lower temperatures.
Using salt brine proves not only to be more effective on roads and pavements, but it is also cost effective. It takes four times less salt to prevent ice accumulation than to remove ice after it has formed. It also minimises damage to floors caused by salt granules carried indoors by pedestrians.

Here's what others say...
Midlothian Council has found R & D Spray Services a reliable contractor. The spraying of all of Midlothian has always been undertaken timously, normally within a ten day period. The contractor has required little supervision and has promptly responded to and dealt with complaints. Standards of weed control on site have been good and therefore complaints from the public have been minimal.
