    Do you run an inline hydro waste filter?

    I love reading all the posts from all over the country (and world) and am constantly entertained. I appreciate that there are soo many types of soil conditions, environmental conditions, cleaners who clean for different types of clients, cleaners who are "mansions only" while other cleaners...

    Sealed concrete cleaning?

    I have used Grout Master or Tile Master in conjunction with a steamer with good success! (yes, a stick mop type steamer) heat makes peroxide very active!

    Motor oil spill on carpet

    I would soak it with a good prespray and a citrus booster, agitate very well and then pour on a big pile of DE. Of course it would have to be after hours. No guarantee, best results, carpet was never intended for mechanics bays.

    Cleaning Checklist

    In my part of the world, the dental assistant is responsible for all their equipment and the sink and countertops in the operatory, we do only the floors, blinds, windows, and high dusting, then comprehensive cleaning in all the common areas and restrooms so really it isn't any different than...

    Cowhide and buffalo rug clean

    I am not offering advise here, just an observation. Isn't it funny how cattle or buffalo spend their entire lives outside largely without shelter and their hides protect them but the minute those hides are no longer on the animal. . .

    Browning problem

    For all the cleaners talking about different pressures, what is the difference between 450psi with 02 flow jets and 250-300 psi with 03 flow jets?? There are a lot more factors than just psi. I had a visit from a cleaner while I was cleaning a restaurant who told me he cleans at 1000 psi, I...

    What is the ph on Groutmaster?

    Light agitation helps to start activating the peroxide to make oxygen before you superheat it. Helps a ton!

    I'm having issues with my belts snapping

    Make sure that all your components are tight on their mountings (engine, pump, etc) if you have a loose component that can cause belt problems also. I buy only gates belts or napa's industrial line.

    El diablo heater

    Did you mis-wire your switch, If I remember correctly they run hot and return through the switch and if you dont get those back correctly it will trip the circuit. Best support in the world for an eldiablo is a phone number right on the front of the machine!

    Can you successfully white towel test after cleaning

    While the "white towel" test is in most cases unrealistic I use it fairly often because "buffing" helps to remove even more soil but mostly because on some carpets it gives you a really good idea of the amount of remaining soil. The last time I remember doing this was on an elevator at a...
