    Maps at it again!

    Check your GMB listings - they have disabled service area distance. You now have to put the zips or towns you service. They have also made it so you can't use general categories as your main category like - cleaning service. UGH

    Latest Wordpress Update - Caution!

    Be very careful if you are updating to the latest WP - many reports of sites getting messed up. I had one go completely wonky on me!! Back up your site first - or better yet - wait till they throw out a few more updates!! I have heard some issues with DIVI themes which are petty popular.

    Olympus M1200 - hoses and a wand - $750

    Works good - I haven't used it in a while. I replaced the regulator and the high pressure hose from the pump. Pump out not coming on but prob an easy fix. New pressure hose - vac hose hose is almost new. I rarely used it at 1200 PSI. It comes with an older want too. I am in Orange County New York.

    Somerhing cool I think

    I just added this to the @1ST CHOICE CLEANING website and I think it's pretty cool. When someone visits the site a little bubble pops up at the bottom corner every few seconds with a review on it. As you all should know by now - I think reviews are a key to conversions! Take a look and throw...

    Luxcelle rug with pee

    Gotta call from another cleaner - custy has a 10x7 brane new rug - blended with Luxcell (viscose). Has 3-4 small dog pee areas. They paid $1100 for the rug and it's literally a couple weeks old. I'm guessing it can't be spot cleaned? @Scott W ??
