FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHEN DO YOU PUT THE LIQUIDOW™ CALCIUM CHLORIDE DOWN ON THE ROAD?
We have to wait until the roads are released by your county's road department. Traditionally we spray the first application in May or June. Second applications are in July or August.
HOW MANY APPLICATIONS SHOULD I GET?
That would depend on the traffic and condition of your road. If this is your first time getting calcium chloride, we would recommend two applications.
IF WE MISS THE DEADLINE FOR OUR COUNTY, CAN WE STILL GET CALCIUM CHLORIDE PUT ON OUR ROAD?
The deadlines are set by the county, so it would be up to the county if you are still allowed to get dust control. If we have already been to your county to spray, we would add you to a list and would spray your road if/when we were back to your county.
WHEN WILL YOU CASH OUR CHECK?
All checks are held until we have sprayed your location. If you need your check cashed when we receive it, please notate that on your application form.
DO YOU USE ANY OTHER PRODUCTS FOR DUST CONTROL?
We only use Liquidow Calcium Chloride to treat roads. In our 59 years of doing business we have found this product to be the best.
DO WE NEED TO MARK OUR FOOTAGE THAT WE WOULD LIKE SPRAYED?
Yes, you do need to mark your footage, not only for us to spray but also for the county road departments so they won't blade through your treatment. Please make sure you have the flags placed in a visible spot. If you do not mark your area to be treated, we will use our discretion in where we apply your treatment. The county may blade through your treatment if it is not properly marked.
