    Cranberry Juice on wool rug

    Yeah I just dropped the rug from the drying rack and tried some CSS on it and extracted with the upholstery tool. Didn't do much. I'm gonna try and stay a hero on this one. You can only see it from certain angles and if your 5-6 feet away you can't see it at all. Thank you guys for your input on...

    Cranberry Juice on wool rug

    Picked up this rug yesterday after a customer spilled cranberry juice on it. I started by extracting with a wand and then applied stain magic for wool on the spot. Let dwell for 15 minutes then hit it with the wallpaper steamer with a wet rag for a few seconds. The stain started to fade but...

    Dog vomit stain on white nylon carpet

    I understand that the fiber is not stain proof I just find the way Stanton markets it comical. No fiber I have found is safe from a stain. I've found you may just have a better shot at getting it out if it has some stain resistance. But they always make it seem likes its 100% definite thing...

    Swimming in the pool today

    Got this wool rug swimming in urine pretreatment. What is your process when it comes to cleaning a wool rug that has urine all over it? Do you guys usually use a deodorant or do you keep cleaning with urine pre treatment till the smell is gone?

    Linen rug drying stiff

    Not viscose. I have attempted to clean many viscose rugs and we decided to stop cleaning them all together. Not worth the hassle especially if you throw pet urine and staining into the mix. The tag on that rug said 100% linen...

    Linen rug drying stiff

    Me and another tech each had a steamer and a handi brush and steamed/groomed the whole rug. The rug is softer then it was after cleaning and the pile is more fluffed up like it was originally.

    Linen rug drying stiff

    I’m kind of stuck at the moment. This linen rug had urine in it and dark traffic areas which we got 95% of (The picture attached is a before). I had problems with the rug yellowing along with parts of the serging which took a few times to correct using an acid rinse and speed drying. Now the...

    White chair skirt browned

    UPDATE: Haitian cotton shampoo did the trick. I was using citric acid and browning treatment (one at a time) and it hit a certain point where the brown water stain wasn't getting any lighter. As soon as I started to use the haitian cotton shampoo the stain instantly got lighter. I did this 4-5...

    White chair skirt browned

    At this point we have tried to remove the water stain 7-8 times. Applying the treatment, extracting with an upholstery tool, and speed drying every attempt. We have used both citric acid and a browning treatment with sodium metabisulfate. There is still a faint ring. The customer won't be happy...

    White chair skirt browned

    How long do you think I should be letting the citric acid dwell on the fabric? I've been extracting it each time I apply it or should I just let it dry into the fabric?

There was a white chair sitting in the Master bedroom and we must have cleaned to close to the chair because the skirt of the chair browned where the wet carpet was touching. It must have wicked up the fabric. Initially...

    Wand is a little bent out of shape

    Wish I knew how to weld. If I brought it to a welder it would probably be worth buying a new one at that point.

    Wand is a little bent out of shape

    One of our technicians managed to bend this wand...I don’t know if he ran it over or if the dehumidifiers weren’t strapped down in the box truck and crushed the wand. Is it worth trying to fix or should I buy a new one? How should I go about fixing it?

    How do you guys list your measurements on housecall pro?

    I’ve been writing out the measurements of each room on a piece of paper and then adding up the sf then putting the sf of each room into housecall pro. Is that how every one else is doing it? Is there a faster way?

    Also definitely make sure your listing on google has the correct information about your business because if not then these other marketing/ SEO companies will start calling your company all the time. A couple months ago I found a duplicate listing on google for my company (We have a different...
