    Vent: A little common sense..please.

    The theft always crosses my mind. We had one guy steal $50, he need it for whatever reason. We fired him, and thankfully we have a good relationship with the client and they understood it wasn't our fault and let us keep the contract.

    Vent: A little common sense..please.

    Not sure if its the right place to post, my apologizes. This past Sunday I went to do carpet spotting at 2 places. Both are the same Dr's office just two different locations. Besides cutting corners, not vacuuming under desks or along the edges and just moping making it worse is one thing...

    Left over stains, or possible colour loss ?

    Hey everyone. So i'm still very new to the carpet cleaning. Few days I got called to do some stain removal. The owners dog crapped on the carpet had some diarrhea, this was last Friday. They tried to clean it themselves, rented a rug doc and used some products, (I have no idea what they used)...

    Who is extremely busy, that you have to give jobs away?

    Do what you can. Out of the 15 years that i've been doing Janitorial, this was our busiest summer/year. Couple of weeks ago I almost had a full break down with all the work, annnnd the heat didn't help lol. For the last 3 months we've barely took on any extra jobs, constantly had to turn down...

    Anyway to replace color loss do to bleeding ?

    Today I went to strip floors at this small clinic we've done it for years, stripped several times. Today while stripping the kitchen/lunch room I noticed that the stripper was turning green. The floor has a checkerboard look to it, instead of black and white tiles, it's white and green. My...

    In the heart of the ghetto, cleaning carpet

    I live in a small town and there is one building that is notorious for being the ghetto place, I once asked my boss (my dad) if he would ever do any work, "f--k no" was his response. And for a good reason, we had one employee who lived there when she was younger and she said a guy would walk...

    Employees...geez (Pic of the day)

    Reading the post I can't help but to shake my head in agreeance with the majority of posters and am glad to be reminded why I joined the forum, that is that i'm not alone when it comes to employees and the janitorial world. My parents run the business and have been for the past 17 yrs, we've...

    Glue here, glue there, glue the f#*k everywhere....

    We tried the plastic blades it didn't do much help, and what it did get off it still scratched the window, plus it didn't fit in the scrappers had to force it open. And yes I will keep everyone up to date with this project, turns out the boss wants the contractors to take off the glue then...

    Glue here, glue there, glue the f#*k everywhere....

    We've been doing work with this business for 15 yrs one of our best contracts. Once we got the feeling that we were getting pushed out and there were the rumors, the boss put a stop and told us that we are the onlys that he would have so i'm very grateful for that. If I could I would quite 99%...

    Glue here, glue there, glue the f#*k everywhere....

    We've done thousands also, normally they aren't bad and scrapping doesn't do anything maybe a scratch here and there and thats all. With these however they scratch easily mainly cause the place is built of steel, and people just didn't bother to think about the windows. The windows are what...
