    Had a new customer yesterday, so I asked her how she found us. She said Siri. Seriously? I always ask this question of a new customer so I can track how they find a service. How about you? Times are always a changin', so it should behoove us to track this stuff!

    Cleaning carpet with dual wands at over 300' from van

    Here's my 30+ year old truckmount, running a #45 Roots blower and a 240,000 BTU automatic LP heater, running dual wands at 300+ feet from the van! Who says it can't be done?

    I need a break from pushing a wand back and forth all day long

    The repetitive motion of wanding back and forth is starting to take it's toll on me and my shoulder. What other device would give me a break from that in a residential atmosphere? I have an older RX-20, but lugging around 85 lbs. is not on my list of things to do. I primarily use truck mount...

    Cleaning with an ETM

    Good Afternoon, I wanted to share our cleaning job from the other day because it shows what can be accomplished with an ETM. We cleaned our church running dual wands with our ETM, and it kicked butt! This is for all of the naysayers who say electric machines are for wimps. We ran 2 sets of...

    In the video at the top of the page, where the technician was cleaning that nasty carpet with a truckmount , was that a demo of the complete wand technique used by that cleaner for cleaning that particular carpet? Was the carpet pre-treated?
