    Waste tank

    Carpet or tile? My tank is only 60 gallons and I can do most carpet jobs without having to dump. I can usually clean 8-10 rooms before the tank is full. If you are dumping 3 times on a 5-6 room carpet job your machine is dumping too much into the tank. For tile I have to stop once an hour to...

    Hard hot starting on a 454 ss

    I can usually get mine started within a couple minutes, I stand there holding the starter key for about 10-15 seconds then give it a rest for another 10 seconds and try starting again. I do have the throttle up at about 2/3 open while dong this. Usually after 4 or 5 times of cranking it for 15...

    Carpet and upholstery estimate help

    One thing I do when doing upholstery like that is I pull all the cushions and pillows off all the upholstery. I then take 3 or 4 seat cushions and stack them at one end of a sofa and make a work table out of them so I can stand up and do the cleaning without bending over for hours. I clean all...

    Hard hot starting on a 454 ss

    I have the 40HP kohler air cooled and it’s been like that from day one. If the engine is cold it fires right up but if I shut off the machine and try to start it again within 30 minutes it floods every time making it hard to start. When it does start it runs rough for the first 20 seconds then...

    Name some phrases we love clients to say...

    That drives me nuts. That and when you get to a job and the customer has moved all the furniture into the middle of the room for you :banghead:.

    George the Carpet Cleaner’s....Advice on Carpet Cleaning

    There are several causes for filtration lines. When you see filtration lines in doorways it’s becsuse the homeowner usually keeps the door to that room closed. When the heat or air conditioner is running and the door to a room is closed the only escape the air has from that room is under the...

    Hi George, I just got home from a long day at work or I would have responded sooner. I’ve been cleaning carpet for 24 years now. The chemicals I mentioned are Traffic lane presprays. I’ve had good success using them. I do offer carpet repairs. I have replaced carpet in doorways usually due to...

    Depends on the type of carpet but I’m using mostly Bridgepoint Bio Break or Groom Solutions Grunge Gone.

    You can move up to a stronger chemical. They actually make filtration line removal chemicals. If all else fails then cut it out and patch in new carpet.
