    Interesting ZeroRez Video. Take a look at how they clean carpets.

    LOL. So funny the synchronicity! My buddy just called me from SOcal today asking me all kinds of carpet cleaning questions because he was having this same company come to service is home. They told him that he has to vacuum before they arrive first of all. Which is ok if its just a...

    Oil stain off of concrete

    Be sure to moisture test the concrete first. All concrete holds moisture. If its letting out larger amounts of moisture for that particular location, make sure they sign on invoice acknowledging that they understand this and that it will surly limit the warranted that you choose to offer them...

    1 jet or 2

    yep, can convert to Tjets, or also use 1/2inch jet extenders with check valves but then the cleaning path would be only 11 inches. Just thought it was weird that they did not make this adjustment from factory?

    1 jet or 2

    To bad the Westpak 10-0530 do not come with check valves and will not allow you to place check valves on it without modification. Thing drips everywhere.

    Oil stain off of concrete

    You can floor grind the concrete making it porous so that it will adhere better. Did you moisture test first. Also the corners and edges are usually the trouble areas of concern. Make sure you lightly angle grind them for best adhesion. I use to do epoxy floor coatings myself.

    Vacation rental cleaning

    Though they can get to be a bit of a headache at times, it would be well to note that if you are all ready in on the carpet cleaning and upholstery side of the business, this could be a great template to "monopolies" in your industry. If you are in charge of cleaning as little as 30 properties...

    Mattress cleaning

    So the pet stores sales a little dog comb with very thin metal brushes for taking nap and bugs out of dog hair. I always wondered if one of those things would get those little lint balls out? I will get one and let you know.

    Wool Cleaning Question?

    My guess is HWE @ low psi, followed by endcap padding, followed by a lot of fans. LOl. Staying within 4.5-8.5 PH on cleaning solutions. Think you can go over 8.5ph but you would have to make sure to bring it back down. be sure to know what the backing is first, as jute backing will shrink up on...
