    My website never comes up on Google

    My main site thedirtarmy.com never comes up on google search for carpet cleaning in Murrieta. My address is in the city of Murrieta, CA. Can somebody tell me what I'm doing wrong. I see other companies have their Yelp page come up at the top of the page. I spend more money advertising on Yelp...

    What is the BEST Water Softener + Filter combo for cleaning carpets

    I'm installing live reels in my van and want the tap water to pass through a filter, then water softener, then maybe another filter to provide my customers with the softest and cleanest carpet possible. What do you recommend I get or don't get?

    Do I need a holding tank to run a water softener?

    I'm thinking about buying a Blueline water softener but haven't been able to figure out if I need a holding tank. If I hook up to a customers hose, then it runs through a water softener, will it have enough pressure or flow so that my TM can run properly?

    Can I hang an electric hose reel this far back in van?

    I want to buy an electric hose reel and have a few questions. 1. Can it be mounted further back towards the truckmount? 2. How does it unwind? 3. is there a lever that has to be pulled to release the reel so it can be unwound? Think about how much room we would have for activities

    Lady called me from the hospital to clean up large areas of blood in her master bedroom. Can I just use OSR, since it contains enzymes. At least I get to use my new rubber gloves today.

    Floor Boarders have Ripples in Wood after we Cleaned Tile

    I just had a customer call and say that his 6" wood boarders or trim are a little rippled after we cleaned it 3 days ago. I actually noticed while cleaning that there was a very small gap on this molding, where it touched the tile, while cleaning and just shrugged it off. I'm finding out this...

    T-REX + Brush Pro + Corner Guards = Video for Upscale Customers :)

    Shot this video today and finally figured out this new editing software (Pinnacle Studio 17.5 Ultimate). I'm starting to like its features. Some of you suggested that I make a video of cleaner carpets using corner guards to get a higher class of clients. I agree. Hope you like

    Money Mailer Ad for 40k homes

    I signed up for the Money Mailer a few weeks ago and was not happy with the way they designed my ad, so I hired "The One and Only" Ryan Kettering from UVforLess. I think he did an excellent job and for a very reasonable price. Hopefully this will get me some extra business. I've dropped my...

    2,400 pairs of booties just arrived. I'm expecting a stellar year ;) only $8.15 per box from JonDon. I actually like these "economy" kind. They are bigger than the more expensive ones.

    Am I throwing money away every day?

    Everyday I swap out my 2 gallon pump up sprayers with new product (if I have the jobs), is this necessary? 1st sprayer contains Matrix Bottom Line (enzymes). This product can be used straight for serious odors or mixed 1:3. If I mix this product with hot water is it going to die in the next 24...

    4 month old blood stain won't come out.

    I threw everything at this freakin blood stain. It laughed at Stain Magic and 40 vol. I couldn't get anything to transfer onto a towel. I guess the husband was bedridden here, and then died. Is there anything else I can do besides cut the carpet out? The below pic is after Stain Magic sat on...

    How is everyone handling this heat wave?

    We cleaned 3 homes yesterday and it was 88 degrees outside in Lake Elsinore, CA. The last home was on a hill above the lake and you could see people water skiing. Thinking about buying some camo shorts.
