Some thoughts to share. If you are truly interested in helping them
evaluate, may I suggest that you or the bank or someone determine why
some areas are duller and others not. Is it where the lines form? How
is the floor maintained? Does it get vacuumed, dust mopped, damp
mopped properly and how often? Are there walk-off mats at the
entrances? What kind of traffic count does this bank have?

It is nice to be able to repair the floor like John Freitag explained
but if the repair does not last due to neglect in the above mentioned
maintenance department... it may mean you getting caught in the middle
for a longer period.

John or Fred? Is it possible to feather in the damaged areas so as not
to process the whole floor before due time?
