Squelch

We have a handheld VHF radio (icom). It seems that unless we have the squelch control on the maximum setting that all we get is static. I don't really kow what the squelch control is or how it works, but am wondering if by having it set to its highest setting am I filtering out messages? How does thw squelch control actually work?
