    Got Covid again

    If all you do is stay away from sugary drinks and those highly refined, processed snacks then you can count on having a good quality of life and cleaning well into your 70's. Of course 8 hrs of sleep and also limit bread you can easier control your weight. My sister got covid early in the...

    O/O vs Multi Truck - Pro’s vs Cons

    Is having multi-truck operation as hard and stressful as it seems? Being an O/O is relatively easy and I make all the money. Stay small, keep it all! I would like to put someone to work but I need to read all the pros and cons first.

    What worker shortage???

    Something going around called the "twisties" and I hear it's debilitating. A mental health disorder that keeps you from preforming your job regardless if you earn millions or $18/hr for sacking groceries. Sounds like if you come down with the "twisties" you can make even more money doing...

    How important is grooming carpet?

    Personally I wouldn't like the shark tooth pattern on my vehicle after a carwash but I do like the look of it on carpet. I read guys saying not grooming is "barbaric" and that "what are you trying to hide" but that's their own guilty conscious working against themselves. I only post groom to...

    How I came to love professional furniture cleaning

    It is not trigger less but it locks in place and is close to the handle so no strain if you do choose to use it. There are times that I am glad it is available to use.

    Help me choose a new swivel wand!

    You can grease the TMF wand as well because it has a zerk fitting. The wand/jets do not leak and the recovery is great. No more wasted dry strokes/energy because you can see when nothing is really coming up and move on. It's a lot of money but i really like it.

    How I came to love professional furniture cleaning

    I actually stopped cleaning upholstery because I hated the mess and strain of the bulky upholstery tools. After using the mytee jet-less, trigger less upholstery tool I started to take and upsell upholstery jobs and loved it. I upgraded to the SS tool last year and love it.

    Help me choose a new NON swivel wand!

    You needed a 2" adaptor to hook 2" wand to a 2" vacuum hose? I just got the Devastator wand as well and trying to determine if I like the swivel or not. Seems harder to push. Perhaps a different group of muscles that need to be used and exercised different technique. I do know that I like...

    Customer Prep List

    Maybe you have add I was also thinking about this. Perhaps you can mention that you will be powering off ceiling fans as you prep the rooms to be cleaned and powered back on immediately after each area is done. I hate when I enter a room after a pre-spray to find the ceiling fan blasting.
