    Portable Upgrades

    I bought a brand new Ninja 500psi dual 2 stage a year ago. The vacuum is really poor. I rarely use it but when I do I run a 1.5 inch 8 foot whip and get by. It only has a 1.5 inch barb and when you cap it it hardly has any vacuum but if you cap the stack directly in the tank it’s pretty good. I...

    New Name

    I would keep the original name and continue to use it with my old customers but I wanted to expand into new locations. I only work in about 5 small towns where I am in New Hampshire. I just didn’t know if people would think “Home Serve” was too close to “ServePro”

    New Name

    I bought my business with a terrible name and need to change it. Do you guys think “Home Serve” is too much of a ripoff?

    Problem Rug.

    So I have a customer, she is a home decorator. She had this custom Wool area rug made for her client. She says it’s “hand looped in Nepal” surprisingly this is a common thing I hear but it’s not true, especially in this case because this rug is machine made. The problem is this rug is shedding...

    If you are able, run your pressure house in open flow at startup and see if it still blows off.

    My motor blew up :( Can anyone tel me how many horsepower it takes to run a 56 blower?

    A rebuilt motor will almost never be as reliable as an original un-opened motor.

    Hands-on Rug Washing Class

    Outstanding class, I’ve taken it. Even if you never plan to wash a rug it will allow you to talk with authority about how they should be handled for in home cleaning.

    Truck mount problems

    Ive had problems with mine and the guys there have been great. But my machine is down A LOT I wish that wasn’t the case. Phone calls don’t fix machines, it’s hard to not have a bad taste in your mouth when you are losing money because the machine is down. I think they are a good company that...

    Truck mount problems

    These machines shut down when the water box hits some really low number like 185. They live on the brink of shutting down. I’ve been through the runaround with mine. Pull the blue wire on the pump switch if you need to get through a job. And if all possible run live water from the house to the...
