    My fascination with Area Rug Cleaning

    Yesterday I made 420 dollars off of 3 expensive area rugs. I did not clean them. I went to my custy's house and picked them up last week and took them in my van and subbed the work out to an area rug cleaner who has top of the line equipment. Then after the usual 1 week turn around period, I...

    Same old hot air bull s hit coming out of Obama's mouth while all those plastic phony politicians in BOTH parties clap and applaud.

    Real Suede Couch & Suede Love Seat & 2 rooms. How much?

    Custy is bickering over price to clean a real suede couch and a real suede love seat. Plus to clean his carpet in his living room and 1 bedroom. None of it is trashed but still no quick job either. How much would you have quoted him?

    Is this the same country I was born in???

    I was looking at CNN today online. The headline says; " Scouts deliver pizzas to gay couples " Well I was really surprised at that because I was in the Boy Scouts in my teen years.

    Any advice for cleaning a Bear Skin rug?

    After cleaning a custy's carpets and upholstery last Saturday, the custy pulls a bear skin rug out of the closet and asks me about cleaning it later. So I laser measured it to roughly 48 square feet. That is not a completely accurate measurement as the rug dimensions are jagged of course...

    Vacuuming from a truckmount?

    I was watching this youtube video where John "Hitman" Braun of Hitman Advertising/Premium Carpet Care in Pensacola, Florida demonstrates his crew vacuuming a rug while hooked up to a truckmount.

    How much to charge for cleaning interior ceiling of 48 ft RV ?

    How much would you charge for cleaning the interior ceiling of a 48 ft RV ? It is a high curved ceiling with white fabric. No "one time" swipe with an upholstery tool is going to knock this thing off easily. Upon inspection, I can see stains all over and some tight places to move the upholstery...

    How many cheap whining price shoppers call you per week?

    I had a call today from a lady saying that she wanted the carpet in 3 rooms cleaned this evening. It was an empty condo they want to move into early tomorrow morning. I told her 99 dollars. Then she whined how it was only 3 rooms, so why so much? I told her I have expenses like fuel, insurance...

    Is this racist or harmless funny satire?

    There has been much controversy over the rodeo clown who got fired, threatened and was given a lifetime ban because he dressed up as Obama at the Missouri State Fair last Saturday night. Then 2 days later, Alex Jones did this controversial skit on his radio show with an Obama mask. In your...

    Up! Personal Portable 3D Printer

    I am thinking about buying a couple of these 3D printers. The possible uses of them blows the mind as seen in this video.

    Anyone ever wondered or looked it up for Canada and United States? I think my metropolitan area would have to be right up there among the most congested for the number of cleaners per capita. I would be curious to know what 2 or 3 cities are the least congested of CC's per capita.
