    Advertising with golf coruses

    I get those calls too... I don’t think it’s a good fit for me. Most of my customers who call are woman. When I play golf, I nobody is paying any attention to the back of a bench out there on the course.

    Drop Down Ceiling cleaning

    Maybe just flip the ceiling tiles upside down... other side probably looks way better. Those things will just crumble apart when they start getting wet.

    100’ leader hose is nice. Reduce your risk of leaky QD’s inside the house and melting floor finishes. Then run 50’ sections after that

    Prochem 650 HP heat exchanger question

    Upholstery help needed.

    I cringed when I saw the pictures, might have gotten a little to wet in that area trying to get those stains out that were there. Definitely treat it with some browning treatment, and speed dry.

    Name reasons you turn down jobs

    Usually if the jobs are in on the 4th floor or higher, it’s most likely going to be a portable job. Usually it’s just a access or water supply issue.
