Lolactually pulling out the viper 175s with black pads next week, did a 100yr old floor today. Gotta go back and strip the rest of the old wax off.
Its a yorkstone pattern and literally has swastikas in some of the tiles around the edges, along with free mason symbols.. not sure the meaning of them or why nobody ever wanted to cover them up.
When I was very new in carpet cleaning as I've said in the past we were bonnet cleaners
The owner told the new guy that we are using black microfiber pads. Using new guy logic he grabs one of the stripping pads off the shelf not from the basket of pads and said it right on top of the carpet and set the 175 down when he turned the machine on it threw him into the next room.
Breaking his elbow. And putting a large hole in the drywall
The owner at the time laugh so hard said he had to set down his beer.
He said boys that is why I make you clean carpet in the garage first on scraps.
He took me home and dropped the new guy off of the emergency room
I never saw that guy again
For some reason I stuck it out
