    Rough hardwood cleaning

    Customer wants their hardwood cleaned. Dog peed on it. It's a rough wood. Normally I'd just use my micro fiber mop and micro fiber pad on my 175. What would you recommend? Products/procedure? It's just like this wood I installed, it has a clear poly over it.

    Making our spotter bottles

    Got these from Ryan Kettering. He did a great job! We will be handing these out with cleanings. Also doing a home show where if they sign up and schedule a cleaning they get one.

    May I vent

    Friday I asked my help to go and turn up the rpms after I got doing a couch, I was going to do some steps with my upholstery tool since it was on. He goes out and I begin to clean the steps, in a second I can't squeeze the trigger. He turned the pressure all the way up instead of the rpms...

    Interior Windows

    When my partner was talking to one of the biggest window cleaning companies in our area, he asked what we are using. Told him strip washer and squeegee. He said Oh you are only doing exterior. What?! Tell me I'm not the only one doing both sides of the glass this way! He must use a sprayer...

    It wasn't what I had in mind when I first stepped in the door tonight. I was tired. But it took just a moment. It was just grabbing a Marvel Lego and being goofy with my son. That moment meant something to him. I'm not bragging I'm just encouraging you busy people to take a moment with...

    To Each His Own

    I see a lot of videos of guys using their Rotovacs and other rotary scrubbers. And my helper can't seem to get it either. I don't understand their set up and routine to go through a house or room. It seems sporadic. Here is my usual pattern to go through a typical house with my Rotovac...

    First time in 9 years

    It's supposed to be spring. But we keep getting snow. Had a job at 9 this morning. Beautiful lake home on one of the nicest lakes around. Problem was it was up a hill, driveway covered in snow with ice under it. I tried several times and kept sliding backwards. I couldn't make it and it...
