    Calling customers you serviced from 2-3 years ago...and longer?

    So, you admitted that you're a " terrible " business owner..... Yes, maybe, but retention rate isn't only about keeping tabs on customers ( just my humble opinion) . I made myself somewhat indispensable to some customers and I can't get " rid " of them. It takes time and determination, but...

    Brand New S Bend 2 jet wand clogging

    I guess, forecast can be deceiving. I checked temperatures in your area, everything was looking nice and dandy, around 80 for your summer time. I guess, I'm wrong. Thankfully, I didn't have a major problems with my TM, except I had to replace 2 Shurflo demand pumps, replaced it with Flojet...

    How to become an Successful Entrepreneur?

    C'mon, " not easy, but not hard also" in sentence must have hidden meaning. It's like with carpet cleaning business. It's not hard, but hell, ain't that easy also.

    Rotovac suction issues. My experience. Help thread.

    Looks like you're 15 years late with your advice, although very useful. I wonder how many carpet cleaners still use Power wand . I stopped using it about 13 years ago, but I don't recall any problems at all. Just kicked the discs to unscrew them, checked the felt gaskets, cleaned the jets and...

    Brand New S Bend 2 jet wand clogging

    I guess we'll never know what happened with the wand problem. It's been pattern lately, newb asks question, gets plenty of answers and thread hits dead end for whatever reason. Colder air is coming my way, it means your wardrobe is going change to summer style. Are you going to enjoy it? I...

    Brand New S Bend 2 jet wand clogging

    Did anyone caught size( opening) of the jets? didn't. It's common to install 11003 jets, , which on 2 jet wand makes sense. I doubt that jets with #03 opening get clogged up easily. I would check for size of the jets first and go from there in quest for clogging problems...

    Soap Daddy Who Has Used It?

    I remember you talking about prices and market a while ago. I think that some of us, e.g. Chicagoland cleaners, don't have to put as much effort ( provided that we can show same great results) to acquire new customers and hold on to them despite the fact that area is saturated with carpet...

    Best Tile and Grout portable

    I'd recommend one with APO and fresh water direct feed for continuous , uninterrupted cleaning, just like this one: Edic Endeavour 1200. It's not the lightest among portables, but well balanced and it has casters on its back so you can slide it right in your van( make sure both tanks are empty)

    2019 Hurricane Season - what's your plan?

    I've counted 6 fishing rods. Did I missed one or two? Are you ready to switch places? Nothing compares to a cabin in the woods... ( minus mosquito bites)

    WANTED: Chevy Express with a Truck Mount.

    Just to give you an idea what would you get if you'd consider my setup. You would have to wait 4-5 weeks, but you're not in hurry, right? 2007 Chevy Express 2500( base), just hit 100 000 miles this week . Truck mount is Relia- Built with a less than 600 hours ( a few months old) with a 65...

    Here's the part number for C.D.S clutch from Napa.

    Same goes for a IS0 68 non deterrent oil used for cat pumps. Instead of paying $16-18 in your supply store, get it from HD for $7.99, respectively $8.99. What a difference, right?

    What gross # per year for O/O to sustain success?

    I wasn't complimenting you or anyone who's getting their feet wet in carpet cleaning industry. I was simply stating that it's hard to wrap our minds around a multi truck operation while working a portable unit. All of us are trying to be a brainiacs, indulging on useful informations, so we can...

    What gross # per year for O/O to sustain success?

    Let me steer debate over to a different approach in " pursuit of " happiness". You're throwing numbers of hours, jobs , it feels like I'm listening to a Blue crew and SS operations. I clearly remember past discussions about quality of our services featuring prevac, crb-ing, extraction, encap...

    Live Chat Software for Carpet Cleaning?

    IMHO potential customers are " too" chatty as is. If live chat is an upgrade from text massages, I would see its value in multifunctionality.I believe familiarity aspect is playing big role also. I see it working when specific problem has to be solved immediately and person answering is super...

    Than talk to Donald. There might be something we didn't think of... Process of elimination might take detour(repair shop) After all , portable is under warranty, use it.

    Adding Wood Floors to Services

    I use Basic coatings products for years and I vouch for the quality. I decided to stop using 175 completely long time ago when I limit my self to providing 5 types of services and I kept only small orbiter for stairs agitation . The heaviest tool I have is a 47 lbs CRB. You, younger guys go...

    Adding Wood Floors to Services

    Are you sure? That was 20 minutes quick wash . I hope you can see the difference, because I got paid for that. I can provide 40 pictures easily, where wash only made a huge difference. In some cases I had to use stronger product first and then neutralize it, but ... What do you mean by buff...

    350 Chairs with modified upholstery tools

    When I looked at the pictures, I knew that you're the guy with a humongous truckmount. I'm only hoping that this cool thing you're presenting is DIY project( when I was building my splitter I was going for the same material, but went for a cleaner look, which resulted in greater obstruction)...
