    Gum Removal from concrete???

    I could be totally wrong, by the way. This is something I had seen a long time ago so I'm going by memory.

    Black spots or brown? You might want to try an alkaline with dwell and some agitation....

    VLM assistance - equipment and process feedback needed

    Since you're starting out on a budget I'd seriously try finding a used machine first. Look for a wheels down. Also, if you really want to get going in a hurry, then I'd say go after commercial first. Commercial will provide a faster opportunity to start making money and will give you the...

    Have you tried the animal style fries? Not as many are familiar with that .

    My first VLM Photos

    I see lots of LVT now and seemingly less VCT or am I wrong? Is LVT a similar cleaning process?

    Orbot Weight Kit

    Weight kit makes all the difference in the world.

    1 - 2 plates for residential, 2 - 3 for commercial.

    Hardwood Job

    You can tell the difference by eyeballing it? If so, how?

    I don't know how you porty hacks do it...

    I don't doubt the benefits for a second.

    I don't know how you porty hacks do it...

    You might want to try padding some of these jobs - at least the empties. It's not as fast a TM, but faster than a porty (from my experience). I can give you some chem if you'd like.

    Grease hawg is AMAZING!

    Both are considered low moisture. The difference is the process: Padcapping = using absorbent pads like SuperZorbs, Glad Pads, Bonnet Pro, Microfber, etc. to pull dirt out Encapping = using fiber pads, brushes and to a lesser extent Tuway's to scrub the floor. The difference is less soil is...

    I just can't seem to get the results I want with VLM!

    Have you been happy with the Escape's results? Have you done tile and grout with it?

    Grease hawg is AMAZING!

    I just checked the updated sample pack and it comes with both Hot Knife Extreme and Grease Hawg among other products. For the general cleaning I would probably go with Hot Knife Extreme, others might suggest Grease Hawg though. For the beverages you would need something like Peroxcellent or...

    Grease hawg is AMAZING!

    Order the sample pack from Vacaway. You pay shipping only and it includes a variety of products like Hot Knife which is their commercial encap product along with some spotters. You could also order a gallon of Hot Knife Extreme or Grease Hawg. Either of the above with pads, pump sprayer, a 175...

    I just can't seem to get the results I want with VLM!

    The Intensity line is low foam. That's why I like to use them (when needed). The only high foam product I dealt with is the original HK. Again in commercial I don't mind, but in resi I don't like the foam. Jets clog on my Bot as well. Big hassle when it happens.

    I just can't seem to get the results I want with VLM!

    Are you running an Escape? If so, how do you like it? I think for a VLM'er a small 36 or ETM would suffice?

    I just can't seem to get the results I want with VLM!

    Interesting. I don't like high foam at all. Personally, I think it's too deceiving. Makes it hard to know what's happening. This is why I always liked Enap Green, Perox and the Intensity line. I thought GH was low foam like the new HKE? Conversely though, I don't mind high foam in commercial...

    I'm going to use it next Saturday and a micro account I service once a month. It's a retail pharmacy that gets blitzed with traffic.

    It's anything and everything. A potpourri of filth. He used to work on his car right outside the door just to the right of the hallway. Mostly motor oil, tracked in dirt, beverage, minor pee, etc.

    Here's a doozie that we and the Orbot took on. Even with the great results, I still a TM on stand-by would be good for me if I wore full bore....
