    Poly/Horrible traffic patterns + cheap Customer

    A CRB with stiff brushes does a very good job and it digs most of the crap out of the base of the carpet that your vacuum missed. Yellow brushes from Whittaker are the best I have found for trashed poly.

    Smell While Drying

    I used RSF Spiked and rinsed with Magic Wands Crystal Rinse last week and the customer a 93 year old woman told me the carpet looked new again and the house smelled clean.

    Rotovac issues

    No problems with my T Rex Jr. I think Mytee makes the best rotary extractor. I had a 360i but sold it and got the T Rex Jr.

    Vacuum just died, what would you get ?

    I like a Kirby for trashed apartments. They are powerful. I buy them used off Ebay for about $100. Only problem is they don't have a wand but they do get close to the wall. What they miss I just suck up with my vacuum hose. I use a Pro Team 1500xp for most residential and commercial.

    What do you hate most about your business

    WINTERS !!!!!!!!!!! and April. 75% of customers in the HORRIBLE state of New Jersey wait till they are sure the cold and snow is done and after the cold and snow it rains 3-4-5 days a week in April. I'm totally dependent on nice weather to be busy. Most of my work is residential. Starting...

    "Can you come take a look..."

    One possibility is.....They didn't use a CRB too get all the dog hair out of the carpet, especially the dog hair that's pushed down too the base of the carpet. The dog hair left in the carpet gets wet from cleaning and is causing that wet doggie odor. CRB is a must for these jobs.
