    Do You Think That There Is A Such Thing As TOO MUCH Experience?

    I have pondered this for quite some time now and having been meaning to ask all of you here what your thoughts are. It was just this past Monday when I was at a clients house re-stretching and cleaning his carpets when we struck up the conversation about having major surgery. (It's what old...

    If You Could Only Pick 1 Type Of Food To Eat For 1 Year What Would It Be?

    Okay....Time to take a break from carpet cleaning. So what food would you pick? For me it would have to be pizza. And not that shitty ass Domino's, Papa John's, Pizza Hut or any other franchise crap they call pizza. That's not pizza. THIS is pizza.....REAL New York Pizza. Maria's pizza in...

    8 Minutes Of Your Life That You'll Never Get Back....But So What.

    I watched the whole video. It was corny, funny and stupid.... but mostly entertaining. I guess all you Pa. guys remember him from the 1980's. This guy LOVED carpet.......or some would say...."Marketing Carpet". And they'd be right. Enjoy.

    Have Any Of You Ever Used Or Thought Of Using A Walk Behind Extractor For Residential Work?

    I've always wondered if anyone ever did build a successful residential carpet cleaning business using a commercial walk behind extractor.

    Selling My Strong 17" CRB Machine & 18" Royal Vacuum

    Both machines are only 4 to 5 months old and look as close to new as they can get. Both machines works flawlessly as they should. CRB comes with two sets of brushes. The standard Blue and more aggressive Black brushes as well as the dust covers and renovators. The only piece it does NOT have...
