    Hard water deposits on granite

    That's some serious deposits there. Start with a razor blade and then maybe some stone scrub from stone pro. It's hard to work that close to faucits without damaging them which is why they are normally removed.

    Travertine Tabletop Questions

    Hold on to your shorts. Here's my two cents. I'd do it the same way you do a floor. It's a substantial table and should be fine with your floor machine on it. This would be much faster than doing it by hand...and with better results. Bring lots of drop cloths and tape!

    Mytee vac motor replacement

    @johnp94, it's just stuck on there man...pull it off! Sometimes the motor, gasket and tank become somewhat fused together...probably from the suction, water intrusion, corrosion and time.

    Flu shot. Do you get one?

    The above is someting to think about. After flu season starts we know which strain is most prevalent...if they guessed wrong on the strain the shot is utterly uneffective. So often later in flu season they are selling flu shots with a certian prevcieved effectiveness when in fact they know...

    Ink pen on vinyl upholstrey

    Probably not coming off. Test under the chair. You might have to pull the black covering off the bottom if there is one. Vinyl is not a friend of solvents which is what gets pen off. Keep in mind sometimes solvents will take the "finish" off vinyl and still look fine...untill you step back...

    McDonalds has sold billions of “cheap” hamburgers...they are still in business. Ruths Chris sells burgers too...for 12 bucks...they both have a valid business model. Each is totally different and has a different clientele. Level of service and presentation must be commiserate with the price...

    Excess Carpet Fuzz

    You're probably the first one to ever clean or vacuum it...sometime it happens. Some new carpet sheds like crazy. Occasionally when this happens it's wool...not likely in this case just saying.

    what if she would have asked?

    It's hard to tell from your pics but if it's a really broad weave canvas like material they are a bear to clean onsite if they are dirty. It's best to take the whole thing off, take it back to your shop and wash it. Often they are from pottery barn or similar. They are lose and no fun to clean...
