    First paid carpet patch, advice?

    Nice job! In the second one I can’t even see where you did the patch, awesome job. You did really good on the first one too but I think I see one thing that will help for next time. Did you test which direction the nap was laying for both the carpet and donor piece? It looks like the patched...

    Here’s the video I made a few years ago. In the video I was leaving the steamer on the stain for a minute or so. Since then I’ve found leaving the steamer a little longer will usually get rid of the stain the first time. I leave the steamer on the spot for 2-4 minutes now. When there are a...

    Citra Solve II

    Has being on TMF made you a more well rounded cleaner? If so, how?

    I’m a big yes for sure. I’m on a big job right now, a 4000 sq ft house that’s 100% tile and grout plus tile countertops and showers. We’ve been here 4 hours already, we have about one more hour to go. I’ll respond more to this thread when I get home.

    Amtex Equipment Rebuilds

    At 250 hours he should still be under warranty. If he goes to a Kohler authorized shop he can get it fixed for free assuming his machine is less than 2 years old. Have him contact Ben, Ben has a list of places he can take it for service.
