A store should patrol its premises on a regular basis.
For example, a supermarket with the aisles for various products should patrol those aisles to be sure there is no spill that remains there for an unreasonable period of time.
If a spill remains for an unreasonable period of time, this would constitute constructive notice, meaning that the store should have known about the hazard if they took the proper care.
If you can prove that a store was told about a hazard, you may have a claim of actual notice.
