    The Art in the fancy term "Artisan Silk" stands for Artificial silk about the same as rayon, pretty much in the same family next time offer them to dispose of it for a fee. that way when you do dispose it you wont suffer the cost. Ive done this cause some of these wont fit a trash can. if...

    Wall to wall braided carpet-Best way clean?

    Hi Rob, is this wool? it almost looks like grass. If wool or synthetic it wont be a issue as long as its not a direct over concrete and if sub floor is level. Uneven subfloor will give you problems that must be explained and advised to client prior to doing the service. other than that. Not...

    Which quick disconnects name brand have been the longest lasting ?

    Yes I lubricate them with a food grade teflon lubricant found at ACE hardware. Lube withstands high temps 400 degrees I think. Stuff is wondrful, wont hurt rubber and pretty much very safe, Expensive yeah but its worth it IMO. can remember the name but it comes in a small grey tube, they also...

    Why should I use your company?

    for me its this. Honestly, I would hate for you to hire a company that will not deliver the quality work, and results that I strongly believe that you deserve. I try to be very honest with my work and I want you to be happy even if it means you not hiring me. If you allow me, i will be honored...

    you're going to have a great day when this meets you at the door

    How to remove brown stain from viscose rug?

    That rug will not only be a challenge it can turn into a nightmare. If your client is willing to sign a disclaimer and a waiver then maybe its worth taking photos of before and experiment. but be warned that even with signed documents this can still bite you. Those of us who have had the...

    Commercial Carpet Disaster

    If what you are stating is the actual detail of your process, then you are doing something wrong 1st thing that I noticed and dont feel bad just learn (we are all still learning) is: You are not pre vacuuming Also you are not agitating/scrubbing. and But most importantly you have not done...

    If you do a lot of commercial....

    Thank you for the photos. Looking at these photos Definitely the spinner is a better version, But the Bonzer is a better design with its backwards or forward cleaning, much better flushing/rinsing when comparing Bonzer vs standard 13" Zipper. The 17 looks interesting but at that price it needs...

    If you do a lot of commercial....

    I dont know if I agree with you (but no worries I completely respect you) The zipper (if I am not mistaken also) makes a smaller version below 14. The standard zipper is nice, I wont argue. But I think that if you already in your mind are more attracted to a certain look or name, that itself...

    If you do a lot of commercial....

    I truly believe the standard zipper and Bonzer are equivalent. Only difference is light construction VS heavy construction. Cleaning wise I dont see a difference. But The Zipper Spinner NOW that tool is definitely better than its original version or the Bonzer. Its tough to say which to get. If...

    If you do a lot of commercial....

    I have the bonzer and it works wonderfully!! But I am tempted on getting the Zipper spinner. Sorry But the Zipper spinner I think is a level above the Bonzer or standard Zipper, The Zipper spinner appears to be the best to use on low cut or short loop pile commercial carpet

    Stains coming back! So Weird!

    Polypropylene also known as Olefin is Ole/Lipo Phillic (oil loving) and Hydrophobic (afraid/water hating) too much pressure and over wetting will give you these issues. Apply a light oxidizer or a Oxy based encap or lightly mist on unchained and do a quick pass and multiple dry passes...

    Dirty and thin wool runner- how would you clean it?

    technically you should Not use a oxidizer on wool, peroxide such from Hydrogen peroxide is very harmful, I am not sure if you have ever seen teenage girls use it on their hair but I have seen it, It bleaches the hair and makes it dry, fray and dingy, kills the natural shine . DO NOT Use it on...

    The most important part in cleaning this is Check the backing , is it Jute? if so use the least amount of water or encap (preferred). if synthetic then your idea is not bad. just dont be too aggressive with bonnet I have cleaned these types of wool runners without any issues use a wool...

    unfortunately if you did not document it correctly, just communicate with her that it did not arrive with a padding but as a one time courtesy you will replace it, express sympathy. Personally If I have done everything right, then NO I would not replace it or pay of rit. I also would NOT...
