    What gives the carpet cleaning industry a bad name to the public?

    Remember though it’s no less the customers fault either. 90% of the time the first question from them is how much per room. Never the first question being what process do you use to clean. A good percentage of customers are price driven. Only until the experience a poor job or damage. I’ve...

    Why are carpet cleaners so “diversified”?

    I don’t know about anyone else. But I was working when a lot of other trades weren’t. I guess because we can and do many services. When one slows we have a lot of diversity. Over many years I noticed when others were slow I was always steady. Never had a government hand out in my life in any form.

    How was your 2020? Poll

    One of the very best years in 30. Sales are up a staggering 200%. Hired more people this year than any other. Even trying to get rid of contracts to slow down.

    What equipment have you bought that was a waste or rarely use?

    I would say square scrub for me would be the worst piece of equipment I ever bought. Returned it a week after I got it. One of the best piece of equipment I purchased bar none would be a taski swing machine with a foam generator. Nothing works better for small offices. Second would be 13” mini...

    What’s your answer to “I found someone cheaper”?

    I tend to answer every call seven days a week. How ever that’s a personal choice. I have the goal of totally retiring at 55. So it’s part of the master plan. I’ve worked almost every weekend and holiday since I was 14. And I have no one to leave the empire to (lol) so I’m going to spend it all...

    What’s your answer to “I found someone cheaper”?

    Simply amazing people spending tens of thousands dollars advertising and can’t even answer their damn phone. Makes 0 sense to me. I personally haven’t advertised for the last twenty years. I just answer my phone. Even when I’m busy as hell.

    what melts carpet?

    The janitor and the carpet cleaner are to blame for even that is damaged in a building. We were the last ones in the building and it didn’t look like that before we got there. Man if I had a dollar for every time someone has said that I’d be rich.

    Let’s talk LVT & LVP

    So this is coincidence so last week I had a call for a new LVT floor a customer moved a refrigerator over totally taking off the top “finish”. There were two wheel marks about two feet apart approximately ten feet long. The way I addressed it was to clean the areas with a neutral cleaner apply...

    Do YOU pre-vacuum or not? (New video)

    Personally only a hack wouldn’t vacuum.! Looking to cut steps is not a professional it’s someone who is trying to make more money for less work. But again it’s only my opinion.
