Hi I’m Rob Allen from Chesapeake Va. I am passionate and driven. I have a crazy sense of humor. Love golf, going to beach, bike riding with wife, working in my yard,and love alternative music like Seether, Shinedown and Thrice.

Started cleaning at 20 w/vacuum shop. Lost that job. Went door/door offering spotters & fix vacuums. Lady asked me to clean her carpets, from there built 5 truck operation. Sold it in 1993.

Restarted 2 years later to 5 trucks again. Then the internet hit. Started Truckmountforums, morphed into FB group, chemical line, local dist, online school, online store and TMF YouTube channel.

I'm Todd, I've been in the cleaning business for 23 years now. I started off as an office assistant answering phones at Coit then moved in to cleaning drapery. A couple years later I moved to being a carpet tech where I worked for the next 15 years. 6 years ago I left and started my own business.

I enjoy building and working on things, especially truckmounts. I purchased both my truckmounts as broken down machines that I stripped down and completely re-designed and re-built. The rest of the time I'm not working on the business I spend with my family. One thing I've really enjoyed owning my own business is the fact I can schedule time off to spend with my family.
I need advice on drapery..

My name is Ernest, I've owned my own business now for more than half a decade. We're family run, my son works with me and proud to say he's able to pay his own way through college working here.

Appreciate all the tips and tricks I've learned here.

Im Bret, I've been cleaning carpet for around ten years, and pressure washing fleet vehicles for twenty years. Currently on the fence about starting my own carpet biz because while I do work extremely hard, and do good work, I am not a people person. I do not like people in general. I don't really have any hobbies, since I work just about every day. If drinking beer is a hobby, then I have one. Single never married, no kids, thank god. Not a family man either. I do love dogs tho. and marijuana. And especially sucking rug.
sounds like fun...

Hi - I Gerry, I have been cleaning for 2 years now and recently bought out a competitor. I still work full time and have a partner who works the business. It has been going really well and thinking about taking the big jump to leave my day to day.
