    My prediction for carpet cleaning this year

    That is what the unemployment office told me when I contacted them that I got full time positions available, and that we train, we just look for people who have the will to work. They told me that it is hard to get people to want to work because they make more on the $600 than they would...

    I'm Shutting IT Down.......

    We all are mostly going to get COVID-19, the thing is you want to get it later vs now. Due to the # of supplies available, and also people are still testing things out. The later you get it the better because by then healthcare workers will know more what to do than they do now. Quarantine...

    I am not surprised carpet cleaners have not said "We will clean your carpets at 3x the rate to help possibly prevent the spread of Coronavirus in your home" I mean a bottle of sanitizer that was $20 is now worth $150 from the same distributor.

    Commercial Cleaning - Best CRB - Whittaker Trio vs. Brush Pro vs ?

    I ended up getting a Brush Pro 17" and it is like a tank. I can't say I use it every single day like some on here since we do Janitorial work as well, but it has not let us down once. So far I had it for about a year. I currently use a Vibe for encap on commercial clients, however, @smart n...
