    Water stain on carpet left over from flooding.

    So arrived, Carpet didn't have any stains, there was a lamp that was in front of the light causing a shadow in front of the door, turned on the lamp and the "stain" Went away like magic. There was a small odor, however the lady told me they had stored items they had dried in boxes right beside...

    The Best Portable ETM Ever Designed - Eletric Truck Mount Portable

    Don't they already have regenerative blowers and multi stage centrifugal blowers that are crazy powerful compared to the carpet industry equivalent but just too costly currently? I think even Claw pumps(almost the same thing but have a claw shape interior) Are superior in just about every way...

    Anyone use a Powerhead wand?

    A CRB with jets and extractor hook up would be pretty cool.

    How do you know if a used truck mount is priced accurately

    How are those reliabuilts? Been mulling over ditching my etm for a gas powered unit. Etm has been great but now that we do power washing too my van is just getting too full of equipment Need a gas TM for smaller footprint I think.

    Name reasons you turn down jobs

    At first I would never turn down anything. Would just tell them what I could do with it and if they agreed would try my best to reach that. Then I got a rental from hell job. The landlord's were selling this totally destroyed building. There's was rotten food and feces everywhere. A mountain of...

    Anyone use a Powerhead wand?

    Like the Edic or Trusted clean Powerheads. https://www.cleanfreak.com/equipment/carpet/carpet-supplies/power-brushes.html Just wondering what your thoughts were? Do they scrub decent? Thinking on nasty jobs it could be a little bit of a time saver. Also I know its not as good as a rotary, but...

    It's here

    How good are things like this at navigating around? I bought my wife a little robot vac that scoots around the house to get dog hair from our dog up so she doesn't have to sweep constantly, gotta be real careful with that thing itll wedge itself under a chair and then just hit the legs for 20...

    what is this business worth? Copied and pasted from Craigslist

    I think it means that very little of its organic. Anyone else could buy the equipment and drop 12k a year in advertisment and would quickly get up to such a level of revenue in the area. (Assuming they dont make a bad name for themselves)At least thats what it looks like to me.

    Waste water dumping recomendations.

    Would never dump in a yard, its illegal as far as I know up here, and the average age of this town is like 55 Years old, lots of older "hippie" types that are very environmentally conscious. Would not end well. Id imagine you would get nailed on like...Day 1 of doing it lol

We just have had many days of 12+ inch snow recently and now its gotten warm suddenly so theres little chance of my van making through this wet snow to get to said RV dump lol

    Waste water dumping recomendations.

    Well found a fix for now. My waste tanks about to get a nice brewers screen installed, 6inch wide by 14 inch deep. 300 micron stainless steel. can put a 250 micron nylon filter in it. Will test to make sure its drain rate means the pump can unload into it without backing up at all.

Update: Got ahold of the Manager, they want all my waste water filtered through a 0.25MM screening to remove sand from it. Im allowed to dump for now and its been cleared for me, but...

    Guys that work in the cold/Seasonal areas, what do you do during the winter for additional income?

    So its coming up on winter up here in Canada. For the last 4 years its always incredibly slow, once you get to that -15c and lower temps the phone basically stops ringing altogether. Our add on service this year was power washing which of course is also pretty seasonal in the area. I feel like...
