    Had a good laugh today

    Lady called me and said her carpet is smashed down and flat now after she had it cleaned. She wanted to know if it could have been from carpet cleaner being overweight? I tried my best not to laugh but I couldn’t stop. I told her I am 240 pounds and I have never had that problem or heard of...

    If you're not color sealing, you're missing out on easy $ and ecstatic customers

    So how in the Hell do you clean it in the future? And I mean actually do a good job with out removing color/paint? You can’t actually sanitize with true steam with out it coming off. I have been tile cleaning for over 15 years now and can only think of a few times where the grout would even...

    If you're not color sealing, you're missing out on easy $ and ecstatic customers

    I am with you. I feel color sealing is a poor mans way of covering up what they can't or don't know how to remove. Recently did a large job and all the color seal came right off and the dirt they painted over did to. Client had her tile cleaned in November and it was getting worse and worse...

    Travertine Grout Cleaning with Grout Master???

    I always use a neutral Ph cleaner on Travertine called Kryptonite from Steam Brite. It normally does the trick but got a really high end residential home and they used unusual wide/large grout lines and they are really dirty. It is a polished travertine and grout isn’t sealed (so she says) but...

    Water residue???

    Efflorescence I think is what you are talking about. This haze I get at the Lexus store could be that or kinda think it is there water because it is from a well. Not sure but a little acid and it looks great.

    What does this look like?

    That looks like failing color seal and I am seeing it all the time around here. Most comes right off with just hot water and 1600+psi but some of it is a PITA to get off no matter what you do.

    Tile and Grout cleaning and removing wax

    Been there done that. 20 years of wax build up on one job it was so horrible. Lots of stripper and I think it would be easier to just use a good shop vac because it clogged filters and my 2 inch hose was caked with wax. Don’t even try and use your spinner until all wax is completely gone. It...

    Water residue???

    I clean a lot of tile and grout and hardly ever have problems but there is one Lexus dealership that always looks like it has a haze. On that job I have to rinse with acid every time or it looks bad.

    Color sealing instead of cleaning

    What’s up with everyone color sealing over dirty grout? Running into this more and more and it is such a pain in the ass to fix. Today I show up to 4 year old home and customer tells me he had it cleaned 2 months ago and it looked great when they were done but ever time they mop it gets worse...

    White couch with old brown moisture staining on it.

    in the mid to late 90's all the striper's here in SA bought white Diane Flack couches they were a bright white and a little different texture but I cleaned a lot of them. Other guys would clean them and they turned a bluish purple and I found that acid would fix them every time.

    2 Truckmounts for sale

    So the EZ machine is neat because it takes up very little space and you can still have big performance. I am blown away at how quick and how much heat it produces from heat exchangers. I am a big kerosene burner guy and really dislike exchangers but this one is impressive. The negative about...

    2 Truckmounts for sale

    Honestly I too had heard really bad things about Amtex but after looking at it closely it has really nice components on it like the mechanical auto pump out that is clutch driven, Kohler Ch740, big generator, and it seems he is running 20% to 30% over and it is very powerful pulling 18hg. But...

    Any old school guys on here from Performance Truckmounts doing water injection?

    So would you happen to have an idea of how much water the blower gets on average per hour? Is it a separate pump or does it suck in what it needs? I called SA and left a msg to see if they sell a aftermarket kit. Got a few ideas but your experience and knowledge is appreciated. Thank you.

    Any old school guys on here from Performance Truckmounts doing water injection?

    Yes sir. I am only running a 47 blower and would be very happy just getting back to 16-17 HG again. Hope to pick back up some cfm as well. I can just tell my car lot machine is weaker than my commercial/house machine they are Twinkie's but car lot machine has thousands of hours on it. 14...

    Any old school guys on here from Performance Truckmounts doing water injection?

    Do you cut off water before shut down and let it dry out? If so would you say cfm and Hg are exactly same?

    Any old school guys on here from Performance Truckmounts doing water injection?

    Seems like Steam Action used a special blower that was designed with larger tolerances specifically for injection. My blower is worn out so probably about right now. Lol
