    I dont get it

    My short time in the industry has me scratching my head..... Spend $25000 on a pretty legit high tec TM. (Not to mention the pile of $$ on all your tools and accessories) and at best you maybe can generate $200/hr on a jobsite. Spend $6000 on a softwash skid and make $400/hr Air duct cleaning...

    For those who use online booking

    Love it, haven't gotten a ton of bookings but the ones that come through its nice getting the alert over the weekend or during night hours while I'm not working the phones. It's changed the way I communicate my pricing to clients as well. I was always measuring every room and charging by the...

    In Line Filter

    Love mine, we put 5 gal paint strainer over the cage filter so it is easy to clean. The only other filter I've tried was the plastic hydro force filter. Just an FYI if you end up getting one, it will leak a bit from the gaskets when not under pressure, I think it's designed that way to flex when...

    Prespray Temperature

    The initial question was asked because since switch from a HF application for prespray which produces consistent heat to a multi sprayer which is only as hot as you mix it up will you loose effectiveness in cleaning? Is a HF more or less efficient? That's a subjective question with subjective...

    Prespray Temperature

    @Tom Forsythe that is exactly what I was looking for, because since switching to a battery or pump up sprayer even with mixing at hot tap temps by the time it's applied it would be much cooler and therefore maybe not as effective? I'm going to switch back to my HF now and see if I notice a...

    Prespray Temperature

    I let go of my in-line for presprays, uses my precious fresh water and ties up my solution line, I came to this realization this winter when temps were top cold to just let my solution line sit for extended periods of time. With my multi sprayer I can go into the home and lay down prespray...

    Cash Flow

    Cash flow is Cash flow right? In my own experience lately I have been utilizing my banks mobile deposits feature and I'm surprised how much more fluid it had made our Cash flow....I mean you might think we'll its not that big of deal just wait a couple days and throw together a deposit. Well...

    Prespray Temperature

    Whats the relationship between temp of prespray at application and effectiveness of cleaning? Say between using HF in-line(hot hot) vs pump up or battery sprayer (hot tap water at best)? Any actual scientific answers would be helpful.

    procyon plus vs carpet details

    Another thought I just had was this, since fats and lipids are soaponified with heat and converted into soap molecules would they then be removed easily with a soap free product like procyon? I could have that wrong but it was thought provoking

    procyon plus vs carpet details

    I like running Procyon in my injection system as a rinse, I like how it keeps foam to a minimal and IMO is better than water only rinse...I have a jug of acid rinse mixed as well for certain scenarios. Interesting read @Tom Forsythe my brain is still processing the information, would the...

    How long did it take you to build your business?

    I've been thinking about changing my web. I see house call pro offers a template you can pay monthly for. Mines a basic free blogger style, I'm in a very uncompetitive market in rural area and always have work but I don't want that to be an excuse to become lax on my presence....

    How long did it take you to build your business?

    Hardest part so far has been explaining to my wife that the "net profit" number isn't coming home in the form of a check hahaha lol! Seriously though where does the money actually go? Well I know in my case it's depreciated assets for some business loans but still seeing those kinds of numbers...

    Tips for getting into area rugs top down style.

    We've used our continuous flow upholstery tool on viscose before with no browning issues, on silk or fake silk pile distortion is another thing to keep in mind, it needs to be groomed almost like velvet upholstery. Every job has some risk involved so just weigh vs reward. It's nice to find...

    Ever got cited for illegal dumping of waste water?

    Never in so many years and now twice in the last 2 months, thing is we dump at the car wash and both times people called the car wash owners and said we were dumping hazardous chems into their pits. After being contacted by the wash owner I explained all of our wastewater is fine to be dumped...
