    What to charge?

    I looked at the job again and the carpet is quite worn and no matter what you do and how good you are you are taking a different piece and inserting it with an old worn piece. It will stand out no matter what. I have a two page disclosure that I have each customer sign prior to doing the work...

    What to charge?

    $125.00 minimum and I really have no issues. Price high as you can always go lower even while cleaning the carpets.

    Dirt Dragon

    I have one and everything that has been said is true. Please don't waste your $ on this poorly designed machines. I am careful and I take extreme care of my equipment.

    Thanks Scott I sawed it in half so as to see the insides and how it was made.

    Hydro-Force: SX-15 replacement Swivel With Flange, NX105

    Is there a way to take this swivel apart and repair it? I don't have the use on the SX-15 that would or should I say warrants for this swivel to be leaking like it is thus not enough pressure to spin the spinner. I used an Allen wrench to remove the bushing but don't see any other threaded...

    Technician pay

    Didn't mean for a "Means to the end" to come off as "cold and calculating" Robert as I am far from that. This business is a means to fulfill our dreams and desires and maybe that would have been a better way to convey what I wanted

    Sagging pants

    Address that issue quickly, I wouldn't have even given a second chance. I have even purchased belts for employees and from the first time I told them to pull up their drawers and tighten their belt, the issue was pretty much resolved. I also told them to be proud of who they are and to always...

    Technician pay

    My lead tech I pay 15.00 per hour and his first year he was able to make a little over $42,000 dollars and I showed him how to buy his first townhome which was accomplished by him. Teach your people how to grow and be "Better People". Carpet Cleaning services is nothing more that a means to the end

    Technician pay

    If you want to build a good business you need to hire right, pay well along with incentives such as upsales. Setup a retirement 401K with a match. Need to create a clean and organized working culture. As Howard Partridge says "Be slow to hire and quick to fire" You will know 95% of the time you...

    Could I have gotten these better?? I presprayed with an alkaline and agitated with a bonnet cleaning process then hot water extracted. This was the worst carpet I have ever cleaned. I can’t believe that people would live like this. Just wanting some advise or if a different chemical would have...

    What is the best Sprayer?

    We have five of the Works Sprayers now and they are great. I have the guys run water through them at the end of the day and haven't had any issues with them yet. For the price of each Works one compared to the price of the IPS Sprayer (Which I have not used) I think is good. I bought mine on...
