    Commercial Carpet Disaster

    Without seeing it or knowing anything else I would say you need to rinse more thoroughly and take extra drying strokes. Probably getting a buildup of chemical residue. You might use blowers on the job to get it dry quicker.

    Is Scotchgard safe?

    I think the real risk was to the fluorochemical production workers. Has anyone seen the documentary The Devil We Know?

    Circuit indicator light doesn't always work?

    Circuits with a GFI or GFCI have been known to cause "false readings" on those circuit indicators. Having the hot and common wires flip flopped in the wiring can also cause it not to read. For example, if you put a new plug on one of your power cords be sure the black wire goes to the gold post...

    LMB2A and Mytee C302A

    These two vacs are definitely different. The LMB2A is a more efficient, and higher performance vac with tapered fans providing higher lift & CFM. It operates on less amps due to modern motor design.

    What would you recommend

    The CX-15 also does not use electricity (no cord). For residential, the TRex Jr. is excellent. Light weight and maneuverable. Plus, Mytee is having a promo until January 4th. When you buy a TRex Jr. from a distributor Mytee will throw in the Mytee Dry upholstery tool set. Includes that tool with...

    Have you ever had a jet or jets clogged on the Powerwand? If so, could you see a difference in cleaning?

    I modified the lint hog

    We've been using Goop for quite some time on projects like this. It's very strong but doesn't get hard. Holds good and is still removable if you ever need to.

    Anyone selling a cimex?

    I know a cleaner in Dallas that has a 15" for sale. Barely used. I don't know how much he wants for it. If you are interested I will call him tomorrow and hook you up. Let me know.

    Certified Pile Lifter - worth it? make sense?

    I had a few Certified Pile Lifters that we used on restoration cleaning, new construction clean up, etc. Back in the day it was, hands down, the best, most aggressive pre-vacuum tool available. Two motors, one for the vacuum the other to drive the big single cylindrical brush. It was made to dig...

    Portable PSI??

    As John alluded to, your target market should dictate how you upgrade a portable. However, in my opinion, a 100 psi pump is ok for upholstery cleaning, but that's about it. When upgrading any portable extractor the two primary considerations for components you want to change are: physical size...
