    I Love My Dry Vapor Steam Cleaners!

    I first bought my Vapor Rhinos, both the 110 and the 220. The 220 allows continues use. I got 10% off for buying both. The 110 allows ease of plug in on some jobs. They are great for tile and grout in small areas but I quickly learned I needed a portable extractor for larger areas, I bought a...

    By the numbers.......6.6"LX vs 8.4" in series

    Hi Ed. This is Cody from Missouri. I did my first carpet job 3 days ago. Seventy five feet of hose. Customer loved it. The Jag worked very well. I did a t&g commercial bathroom today, 160 feet using a hard surface wand. The machine did well but I messed up with my chems or scrubbing so I have to...

    urine removal from metal bathroom partitions

    My concern is that if it takes an aggressive chem to get the white mineral buildup off the t&g then it may take more than general cleaner to get the urine residue off the partitions. The cleaners they use now don't work.

    I have 10 commercial bathrooms to clean in the near future. T&G floors and walls. I know what chems I will use on the t&g but what would work best to remove urine residue from metal and vinyl partitions between the urinals? I have different tmf chems and some trash green. Management will also...

    FB Question which do you prefer truck mount or portable for just starting out?

    Why did you switch from a Jaguar to a Nautilus? I am looking at both of those. I am new to the business and have lined up some commercial t&g accounts and need to get a porty right away. The only concern I have on the Jaguar for t&g is the 1gpm pump out. I think the apo would be ok on smaller...

    Which brush for Oreck Orbital for T&G

    I have a new Oreck Orbital, (the small cheap one) which color brush do you use for t&g. I don't want to use one that is to stiff. The orange (.028 thick) one seems it may be to stiff, i am leaning towards the blue (.02 thick) one. I think the green (.012 thick) would work on hard floors. At the...

I can put a heater in it when its in the shop but I am not comfortable with a propane heater when I am driving. Also when your on the job you need to keep the traier doors open some. What do...

    Gekko vs Westpack wand

    My interest is in quality of product. Leaning towards the Wespack because of price since it appears both units will do the same thing and have similar quality.
