News You Can Use
We are coming down to the end of the year and most of you are getting ready for Christmas, I'm sure. It is a good time to reflect over the past year, the successes, and almost successes, and where we have been. I am reminded, myself, of how thankful I am for you, my customers, and loyal readers. I appreciate the opportunity to work for many of you and I hope I have been informative and helpful over the past year to all of you. I also appreciate the feedback that many of you have given me, the thanks, the criticism, etc. I do like to hear from you and I read every email, even if I don't have time to reply.
The Floor Detective will be closed the week of Christmas, December 22-26. We will be back the following week. If there is not time to get a newsletter out on the 29th, let me take this time to say have a very happy holiday season and may 2015 be your best year ever!

What's wrong with this picture?
Ever wonder where those little 1/8" circles come from in wood floors? People often don't realize how worn their shoe heels get. These two nails together measure .049 square inches. If they are supporting half of a 130 lb woman's weight the pressure on the wood flooring would be over 1300 lbs/square inch! They don't have to be completely worn through like these to have an impact. Even these will leave marks.
Don't go down these stairs!
This is a back door or fire door at a Longhorn restaurant. The handicap ramp is accessible but the stairs are blocked by the railing. How did this get by the fire marshal? And why is there a doggie door at the bottom of the door?
