It is important to bring in spray bottles and chemicals inside at night when the temperature is approaching the freezing mark. Spray bottles can be damaged if slightly frozen. Also remember plastic becomes brittle when cold so take extra care of tools and equipment when they are cold.
WINTER TIRES and ROAD SAFETY
Allow extra time in the morning to arrive to your clients safely.
If you do not have winter tires I would highly recommend them. They greatly increase safety on winter roads. Below is some advantages of winter tires.
The Tread Rubber - In extreme cold temperatures, the tread rubber of an all season or summer tire stiffens and becomes less able to provide sufficient traction. To combat this, tread rubber compounds of winter tires are designed to remain flexible, allowing the tire to grip the road better.
The Tread Depth and Patterns - A unique feature of winter tires is deeper tread depths and unique tread patterns. Deeper tread depths reduce snow buildup and provide better traction on the snow. Winter tire tread patterns are designed to channel snow and slush and expel water.
Biting Edges - Winter tires also feature an increased number of biting edges and high sipe densities, or in other words, thousands of tiny slits in the tread that provide traction on ice.
