    Worst Filtration Ever. What would you use?

    When the wall seems grow "dirt", quit your friggin job! Degreaser of some form. Fels rocks. That said, you need to be super leery of electricity. While I doubt it will jump to the actual tool holder, they could have minor system failure if there is outlet or switch panels to clean around.

    Prochem Performer pressure regulator

    I did, they grabbed the wrong part from inventory. After much tribulation and 40 bucks worth of brass fittings, I have it working. Total PIA! Why I did not do this after the xmas rush is beyond me. I need to be slapped in the back of the head. Once I get through this next week, she is getting...

    Prochem Performer pressure regulator

    It looks like in, is not in. The markings on the old regulator are the exact opposite of the new one.

    Prochem Performer pressure regulator

    Mine was leaking, so I ordered a new one. It is an all brass Suttner and looks nothing like the old one with the plastic handle. I have bought all sorts of fitting and things will not line up without hacking the machine. Anyone swapped one?

    I'm doing my first urine treatment in a rug bath. Help Please

    I have always been leery of enzymes on wool. That said, this is not exactly an investment textile.

    I'm doing my first urine treatment in a rug bath. Help Please

    Perhaps I need to spend more time with this product. That said, 15 gallons will not even hope to wet out a 9x12.

    I'm doing my first urine treatment in a rug bath. Help Please

    The product is not such a big deal as the rinsing. Vinegar works great on synthetics, not so much on wool. The biggies are breaking it down and flushing it out, pure physics.

    I'm doing my first urine treatment in a rug bath. Help Please

    Use a black light and soak the contaminated areas in warm UPT or worst case, warm white vinegar. Allow it to soak for about 30 minutes, then flood the area with warm water. Use buckets, big buckets. Proceed to flow a huge, no, a more huge amount of water through the rug. Once you see no color...

    Whose doing rugs poll

    We did a pastel hook this week. After dusting, lots of pink flower petals appeared in the pink field. They were lost, but found again.

    Whose doing rugs poll

    The single best part of cleaning at the shop is the dry soil removal. Other than urine, the wet part is almost an after thought. I am still astounded how colors and patterns appear from nowhere, after a good dusting.

    Working in the elements

    It's the Canadian guys working in 20-40* below, that confounds me. You can also keep the 120* places as well!

    Only push air over the back for the first night, then do what you want.

    Why do some have star ratings, and others not?

    One style rug that always browns out? Why?

    We did the mother of all of them today! The rug creaked when we handled it. When I bent it to look at the base, there was no visible soil. Yet! Mountainous tons of "debris" just kept on coming out. I mean CLOUDS and PILES! I have no idea how much carpet, we removed from that carpet. This was...

    Candle Wax Problem

    I have tried all sorts of things over the years. This is what works best for me on very thick wax. Break, smash and scrape away as much as possible. Then remove the rest with very hot water from the wand at low PSI until it is gone. I would never re-liquify dark wax on a light carpet, unless it...

    blood on wool

    Apply a very foamy neutral spotter and rinse heavily at low psi and no/low heat. Once all matter is removed, move on to the stain. Rust remover can be used on iron particles, it may do something or not. Pluck a fiber and test it with peroxide, note color change and final result. There was a wool...

    Found new use for un-picked up rugs

    I have a near 100 year old Sarouk that I hope they never claim. Beautiful rug! Most of them, I dump.
