Not sure what the correct protocol is for someone new on this forum, so just thought I would quickly introduce myself. My name is Tammus and I am an owner operator from Michigan. I have cleaned carpets part time while I taught middle school special education for 25 years. I am 48 now, not teaching anymore, and carpet cleaning full time for the last year and a half. I had to change my business model in order to be able to support my family. I have been lurking here for a few years and have found a ton of helpful/useful information that has helped me. Anyways, I have always enjoyed this industry and my wife is sick of hearing me talk carpet cleaning all the time so thought I would try this.
