    "Protect your investment" sounds way too "high pressure used car salesman" to me. I don't like the way it sounds.

    I have yet to find a company that will private label a neutral cleaner. My customers rarely know what I mean when I tell them to clean their floor with a neutral cleaner.

    @Bexiesbruv How do you seal tile and grout and with what? Normally I don't seal tile (ceramic or porcelain) but do seal stone.

    It leaves the door open for another contractor to come in who does do grout. If they also happen to do tile, carpet, etc you probably just lost that customer.

    When I do it, I usually use 2 coats of a product from (I think) Johnsons called Taj Mahal then top off to desired finish "look" with hard as nails from Betco. I use a silkie waxing mop.

    Agreed. If I was not an O/O O might look differently on it.

    Good stuff Rob! We need to always show our customers how we can solve their problems but don't always take the time to do it.
