salt removal
Does that just consist of sweeping up any salt left over from the winter? Or what?

When you promote salt removal, do you explain to customers as to why this is important?

I don't think the average person understands this.

Can you tell us a little why it is important. I am sure a lot of the members would benefit from knowing.
