    Moisture readings

    DryTrack and moisture mapper are the soup du jour but you can just plug them into an excel spreadsheet We have DryTrack but it's just not really a good fit for us so I have the techs log everything old school on paper then we input into excel and send in with the invoices. It's about 150x...

    Serum 1000 Machine

    No, that's something that you purchase that maximizes your product usage and labor usage. The xact price is the same but you are spending money on a machine that in theory maximizes your efficiency and increases your profitability

    What's the #1 way to get Water Damage jobs?

    Those are also the lowest margin jobs because the plumbers want a flat $300-$500 referral fee which is a LOT for a normal size water damage And the prop managers want the cheapest cheap price in the world or they have their maintenance guy "put a fan on it" and then call you in 6 months with a...

    Testing ceramic tile for moisture.

    Tile on slab I wouldn't touch it, no issues. Only issue would be a poor install where water gets under the tile and pops them up. Seen it a few times but pretty rare and it's obvious tear out cause they are all broken and popping up

    Smoke clean up

    No way he's gonna pay $50/hour just for labor when you aren't bringing any experience/equipment/money to the job. If he does, he's just being really really really nice to you cause he's a good friend.

    Public adjuster

    Generally speaking they wouldn't touch or even see your mitigation money. I would definately not give 10% in this case and would let homeowner know they owe your full bill. They are instances where I would gladly give 10% cut but not in this case

    Should RAM AIR INT. be in the NADCA

    Little different in this situation. Basically the ram air is a complete scam system. It kind of cleans about 20% of the hvac system at best. Hvac clean is the biggest scam potential in the cleaning industry There is basically no verification system and no way to visually clear a job Carpet...

    Get dri eaz dehus, they can take a beating Go cheap on the fans no prob, hard to go wrong with a $125 fan that you pay off in 1.5 jobs Dri eaz fans are good but tough sell for me when they are triple the price. We buy cheapest fans possible and only the 7000 or revolution dehus, nothing else...
