Winter is finally on it's last legs, but thaws and freezes can leave sidewalks icy and dangerous.
Follow along with Spec Sense for everything you need to know about the proper application of Icemelt.
Here are some key points to consider:
- Start by removing snow as soon as possible. This will limit how much ice is formed.
- When choosing your icemelt, make sure to read the label to find one that works best for your location.
- Overall, it's recommended to use 100 grams per square meter. Even eco friendly options can be harmful if used in excess.
- Using coloured melts or an ice spreader provide the easiest full coverage.
- Once the melt starts working, remove the slush to prevent it from refreezing.
- Choose your mixture carefully according to the climate, area, and what kind of traffic you're expecting.

Switching to Betco brings a variety of new options for your cleaning routines. This month's Vendor Spotlight also highlights the importance of Floor Care! Following a strong system of products is the best way to ensure your flooring lasts throughout years of traffic and cleaning.
Step 1: Strip
A floor stripper is developed to penetrate and remove multiple coats or burnished floor finish with the minimal amount of labour. Utilizing Betco's Extreme No-Rinse Floor Stripper, you get the latest in technology that unlocks the chemical bonds of acrylic and urethane fortified floor finishes. With it's lower pH than competitive formulas, it requires no neutralizing or rinsing! Find it available in 1gallon or 5 gallon containers.
Step 2: Seal
Now that the old burnishing has been removed, it's time to reseal with a hard, durable basecoat. Betco's Acrylic Polymer Floor Sealer is designed as a basecoat to protect floors for years at a time. This sealer can be used on all types of resilient tile and terazzo floors. It's high gloss and comparable with all waterbased finishes - with none of the yellowing or powder!
Step 3: Finish
Betco Hard as Nails Floor Finish utilizes highly durable internally cross-linked polymers blended to achieve a harder floor finish film. This unique chemistry results in a high gloss, long wearing finish that cures faster and harder than any other metal-interlock finish. The perfect labour-saving advantage for educational and retail facilities who have little time for full floor burnishing.
Step 4: Maintenance
Finally, keeping up with your flooring is the best way to keep it looking freshly finished! Betco's pH7 Neutral Daily Floor Cleaner is the perfect mild cleaner to emulsify and suspend dirt for easy clean up. Controlled foam is ideal for use in auto-scrubbers, mop buckets, and pails. It won't attack, haze or dull your floor gloss which keeps it looking it's best without a film.

Finding a Wasp or Hornets nest around your home or business can be stressful, so removing these nests before they become too large is a large part in keeping your outdoors safe.
Here are some tips to get the best results when removing a wasp/hornet nest yourself.
1. Find a propelled Wasp or Hornet killer. This will allow you to stand at a safer distance when removing them. Check out Doktor Doom's Supercharged jet foam wasp & hornet killer, or wasp & hornet nest annihilator.
2. Choose the best time. Wasps/Hornets are more likely to be back in their nests and inactive an hour after sunset, or an hour before sunrise. These are the best times to apply the spray.
3. Do not spray from a downwind position. Optimal conditions are still air, however in the case of wind it is best to stand up wind.
4. Refer to your spray of choice for appropriate distance to stand away from the nest and shoot the product so it completely covers the opening and outer sides of the nest.
5. Do not go to remove the nest right away, some time may be needed in order for the spray to work it's way through and kill all inhabitants. Additional applications may be required if you notice wasps or hornets still moving around the nest, but once you are confident they are gone, the nest can be destroyed.
Your Summer shouldn't be held back by the threat of angry buzzing, with Doktor Doom you can have the confidence you need to get back outside!
