    Shipping a box truck

    Both times I have shipped mine I ended up paying an employee to drive it and flew them back. The costs of shipping an “oversized vehicle” or anything that wasn’t a car was ridiculous.

    What’s your carpet cleaning pet peeve?

    I have two really big ones. If a customer “pre treats their “spots” or “dirty areas of the carpet” I normally walk on the job. The other one is I have pretty clear limits on furniture I move. One of the things that I won’t move are beds. I broke a bed frame once and I’m never doing that again...

    Let's talk about Aerotech Carpet Cleaning Truckmounts

    They are built for large production setups. Being able to run multiple zipper wands/tile spinners/high flow wands at 250 degrees is the feat of their heating set up and even multiple fuel fired burners would be nessary to keep up

    Self employed vs being employed

    I prefer working for someone else. I can be a good cleaner and trainer and not get distracted by so many things. At a large company running crews you can still make ~80k-90k not as much as a very successful O/O but nothing to scoff at.

    Restaurant day!

    I like Siager sauce code red w/g-force booster for restaurants. Almost never have to scrub. I hear all the time that restaurants don’t pay well but I have not had that experience.

    Need Help On Stubborn Carpet

    I do agree with the moisture comments from above but happens all the time here in Minneapolis from all the snow and salt that gets dragged in.

    That can happen when ever your tank gets full. Might also be worth descaling your machine before you take anything apart.
