    Summer is usually my busy time. Are you running any advertising? I would be worried if it slowed down in the summer here.

    Trump to step down!

    When jabs tried to be funny but shows he's too stupid to realize Beau is a literal name. Then tries to pretend it's the "active member status" we were talking about and not the fact that he made a 30min old coward account so he could admit he's a Democrat. This is pretty good though, I enjoy...

    Trump to step down!

    Holy shit haha. Imagine being such a pansy that you need to make a new account just to admit you're a Democrat on. Wew, I couldn't imagine being so insecure as to not have the guts to openly admit I'm conservative. You know you've admitted defeat when you're ashamed of your political leanings lol

    Problem with Jaguar 8.4 vacuum life

    Are you running into foaming issues regularly? I'd recommend a good defoamer as that seems excessive for blown vacs

    Are attachments like sand blasting kits worth buying?

    Hey guys, So now that I've gotten most of my power washing equipment up and running just wondering if I should get some of the more novelty attachments. Thinks like sand blaster attachments for power washers. Do you advertise or get requests for such services? Thanks

    What size generator for portable carpet cleaning

    A tank runs me 9 hours and costs 25-30$ up here in Canada. 2-3 Gallons per hour would be like 12-15$ an hour lol. So def not that kind of fuel use. Its like 3$ per hour tops.

    Trump to step down!

    I find it interesting that hardcore left leaning people always try to blur the lines between legal immigrants and illegal immigrants. It's almost as of they can't argue in good faith and need to try and make a play on words.

    Trump to step down!

    It takes a special kind of person to look over at Europe's ever shrinking freedoms and think to themselves "Hey, id like that here too" Don't worry you can call us Russian all you'd like. We get a good laugh from it every time.

    I just like the ease of use. Just roll up. Pre vac/spray and just my hoses and go. No worries about breakers or finding plugs.
