    Add concrete to your services. Holy salt! Thats one good thing about the liquid, there isn't any or very little residue left over vs. rock salt. Look at the second pic. already looks like the salt has done some damage. I see that around here too.

    OMG! Is that salt on a sidewalk? :eek:

    Could you hear the concrete crumbling from the cab of the truck?

    Your right it doesn't look good.

    That's pretty common around here especially if it's a light snowfall that only needed to be salted.

    No kidding!!! :laughing:

    At some point, that becomes more of a safety hazard than the conditions they were trying to treat.

    That's what happens when they take care of their own salting, it's common here for the business to maintain their own walks after the contractor clears it the first time.

    All malls look like that at this time of the year.

    I rather have mine like that rather than to have ice on the walks. I've never heard of a slip and fall because of little extra salt.

    Was it going to snow that night? They could have been pre-treating?

    I figured this had to be one of your properties, I saw it too while I was heading to the subway in Cleveland, Ohio:laughing:

    Jomama... that ain't even funny. One of our guys was just contacted by his previous company. It seems that their slip and fall is moving forward and may actually go to trial.

    The slip and fall relates to fertilizer granules left on a sidewalk in between fertilizing and blowing the walks. Salt could be next.

    btw... that looks like rock salt not a quality ice melt product.
