    What kind of floor is this and how should I clean it?

    If it turns darker when wet it could be a natural material like cork. Just remember to test a small area like under a sofa or out of plain view.

    Client refused cleaning over political view

    I believe this is the greatest country on earth. I believe in God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. If you ask me I will tell you the truth as I know it. No amount of money or business can change my mind. If you hold a gun to my head and tell me to change my mind I will tell you that...

    Dollar General

    To do this right you would need to have 2 people per night for 3 or 4 nights at 8 hours per night to strip floors and apply 3 coats of wax. We did an appliance store and start at 7:30 last night and my guys didn't finish till 6:00 in the morning and they stripped about 2,500 sf.

    Marble floor maintenance suggestions

    You can strip it off with a good wax stripper and a black pad just like you would strip Vct . The reason they waxed the floor is because the customer wanted a shinny floor so you will need to Diamond hone 200 grit up to about 3500 and 5x polish to a hard shine. I would charge about $1,000 and...

    Devastator lint filter

    After reading and watching the positive video about the devastator lint filter I decided to order one but their website is terrible. I guess they don't really want to sell them from their website. Does anyone else sell the filter?

    Driving down goodies to Janitors Closet

    Rob, if I had known that you were going to be in Orlando I would have made the drive over from Tampa to shake your hand. The owner of the Janitors closet is a first class guy! I've known him since we were young when I would go by the Tampa location and buy stuff from his dad and Greg would be...

    Can’t seem to figure out What’s going on with this tile here?

    Everyone is right about not using acid on a stone floor because it will leave etch marks. I would use a small stainless steel brush as someone suggested on the grout and the white should come out. If not you can try to match it with sandless grout and cover over it.

    Orbital machine and vct care

    I agree. 17" 175 rpm machine use a good chemical stripper, neutralize, good quality wax applied with a flat mop applicator system, scrub and re-wax as needed and strip as needed.

    Hey Rob, That is a really beautiful floor with a really high shine. Not sure but if you really need to know the name of the stone I'd bet that Stu Rosen at mb stone could Id it for you. It looks like it is in great shape, it actually looks like was just restored or very well maintained.

    Vct Job

    We will use green only in a few areas like where the chairs roll behind desk or something like that but if we need to do the whole area with a green pad I'd rather strip the floor but that's just one old guys opinion lol.

    Last minute cancellation

    I don't believe this lady will reschedule. It just aggravates the heck out of me when this done and it leaves me without work for my employees. I am usually able to find something for them to do but not always and I guarantee 2 of my men 40 hours per week and 1 is part time.

    Last minute cancellation

    We had a customer call and leave a message at 11:30 on a Saturday night cancelling a Monday morning job. It was actually a $1,000 travertine job which we were able to scramble and move another customer up but it still left us short a job for the week. Do you all take a deposit on large jobs?

    Travertine impregnator

    In my area every $1,000,000 home has travertine floors and showers and a lot of those homes have travertine around the pool area. I just pressure washed around the pool in a large house and honed it using 600 grit honing powder and it turned out chaulky so I did a test spot using an impregnator...

    I would. On the next system I buy in the next 6 months it will have an auto reel on it.
