    Boss Ultra?

    Has everyone got paid yet? They contacted me, not sure I'm interested, certainly not if they don't pay promptly. I get paid on commercial at completion, sometimes a few weeks, but none of this 60 90 days. In fact, I even get advance deposits on some jobs. Not bragging, just saying that's not...

    Janitorial & VCT pricing

    Great post Mike! I'm bidding a vct job now, looking for direction, since I've never done it before. They want quarterly stripping, monthly buffing. Any suggestions? Decent size job, lots of small rooms and halls, a medical facility. Thanks Ron

    Wish me luck!

    I get a few a month who are so clean you cant tell the difference. These are clean freaks, and I love them. I can fly thru like superman. They are on the other extreme from the job on this thread. I get a few of these trashed ones too, but all too often, the trashed ones are also very demanding...

    If prespray dried in an area of tile and leaves a haze what’s my next step?

    I cut my carpet cleaning teeth on a 175 shampoo followed up by a wet vac. I was employed as a resident manager of an apartment complex, and that's how they taught me to clean their carpets. Not real impressive results as I recall. lol 175's are easy, just be ready to let go of the trigger if it...

    To Franchise or Not to Franchise, That is the Question!

    Thank you Mama Fen for your feedback! Do you hear more complaints or positives about any particular franchises? Do any throw more red flags than the others? I take it you deal with carpet cleaners as a supplier, so you meet many different companies?

    To Franchise or Not to Franchise, That is the Question!

    So, 6 years into building my business, and I'm now at the point of wanting to grow it into multi trucks, and get off the truck myself. Exploring all avenues, and since marketing is the key to expansion, and brand recognition goes a long way in business, I'm curious about Franchises. I'd love to...

    Does BNI really work

    I was a member for several years, and it brought me some work, it was a help in my first few years, then my group dropped me, because I was not an aggressive member. My group did very well as a whole, but in their words, "I was not a good fit". I have to agree, it's not for me. Too corporate in...
