How the heck do you guys stand it? I was ready to tear my hair out after the first room. Took me 2 hours to clean a 500 sqf mobile home. With the oh-so-scientific hand feel test I couldn't notice any difference in dampness.

Our rigids never get used and the Zipper is their go to for big rectangularscreen Tony's new wand works great but has a serious flaw in the swivel....
20160611_131005.jpg A rug came in while I was in Thailand. Tech submerged it. The backing was dyed cotton. The rug had some urine on it. The blue from the backing ran into the white and shrunk the rug. He sent me a photo of the rug in the tub with the water Blue and exclaimed "I've been Sabotaged" Anyway I guess he thought he had corrected it and the photo he sent looked ok. The rug got...
I cleaned for an elderly lady in a mobile home a few days ago. She was happy with the work, but six hours after the cleaning she called at 8pm to tell me that I had left a Febreze oil warmer on her $1,800 entry table and she demanded that I pay to have it refinished. Now I know not to put an oil warmer on a table and I’m very careful about things like...

We got a call yesterday from a carpet retailer for an emergency job. They had a carpet being installed today, that the guys in the got several grease marks on when it was in the warehouse. We've done work for this retailer here and there, but they don't refer us consistently because they have another guy they use. It is a place where we would love to be the primary cleaner they use and...
