    Trump to step down!

    OK I voted for Trump. Quite frankly I dont like the tweets but other than that, what are they complaining about? Gotta love the Democrats. What can they say they have accomplished in the last four years other than bashing/investigating/etc Trump. Please name something.

    Really BBB?

    so let me get this straight. Someone not affiliated with the Government or Law Enforcement tells you that you are not complying with their rules. So its pretty easy -if you do have a membership, drop it -if you dont have a membership, ask them what gives them the right to oversee how you run...

    Left over stains, or possible colour loss ?

    rinse with water to remove all the spotters and cr*p everyone put in it to try to clean it. Then spray Proxy or Stain 1. Cover with wax paper and put something of no value but heavy on it to keep the wax paper (vapor barrier) in place. Keep covered for 24-36 hours. Done

    Please critique my new ad...

    Rob, if your open to an observation, you have made many posts concerning what others think of you. Evidently this bothers you and it comes out in this ad. I have to agree with some of the other posts that putting others down in any degree is not a good marketing strategy for many reasons...

    Best valve to stop rinse??

    https://www.jondon.com/ball-valve-1-4-m-x-f.html for up to 400 psi or Joes valve for higher psi Funny you should mention this. At my first IICRC Carpet Class we were sitting next to two newbies and the same question came up. What do you do when you want to switch the solution hose from the...

    Do you turn down really nasty stuff?

    Apartment cleaning has been history for about 20 years now so that takes care of a lot of nasties. Now almost all I clean are high end homes - most of which are what we used to say *fluff jobs*. If I came across a nasty, I think I would pass. There are enough other cleaners that would be...

    Boss Optima Wisdom (The Best Carpet Cleaning Possible)

    your referring to Joe Domin Yes a great guy and and totally agree with what you wrote. But what if you kick it up a notch and use a CRB to mechanically brush in the prespray. Much better results and less manual effort.

    Really?

    Customer from last Friday calls and asks me to come back and pick up the foam blocks and plastic tabs that I used under her furniture. She says she doesnt want to throw them away because its bad for the environment. So I put on my happy face and say Sure just put them in a bag on the porch and...

    Doing this I never got call backs - ever

    Wow, and I thought I was the only one who thought that way. Grooming done properly also lifts the fibers vertically so that it drys faster. I prefer to groom the carpet so it has that *just installed* appearance. I do think that cleaners use the triangles (what I call Christmas Trees) to hide...

    Starting business how do i compete

    I agree with all of the above. Your heads above the rest already because you are watching this board which will help you a great deal. If I can add my 2 cents worth, i would not worry about what others are charging because in reality, the price the ADVERTISE is not the price they actually...

    Owner Operator a job or a business?

    it depends on how you run things. If you just are going through the motions then you have a job. If you take the time do do what a business owner would do (load lists, maintenance lists, financial projections, etc) then you have a business.

    For those of you who are Owner/Operators looking to add a truck....

    a good read would be Brian Clarks article in the latest Cleanfax Magazine. Once you add an employee your role changes. Its not just a matter of duplicating what you are doing now. Great article.
