The World's Greatest Carpet Cleaning Forum

After a number of calls also, about upholstery cleaning problems.... Thought I would post some pics and questions. First....have you taken a training class? Second....have you sent your techs or yourself to Jim Pemberton's training? Everytime I get a call, I tell everyone of them they need to change the tools they are using, change how cleaning and get over to Pemberton's for his...

The best of the breed in truckmount extractors with MasterBlend’s El Diablo Truckmounts. This isn’t idle talk. All you have to do is look at the features offered with the El Diablo and the El...
After 2 years of trying to get this contract, we finally did! Our first high rise condo in downtown Vegas.

We have cleaned several units in this high rise over the years, and I have emailed back and forth with property management about how the traffic...

I purchased the delux package from rotovac and have recently started using it. I am new to carpet cleaning and am absolutely flustered by the set-up and breakdown time. Some people say it only takes them about twenty minutes to set up their porty where as it took me about 40min to set up the cfx to the faucet run hose to the toilet and begin auto pump out. Is this set up time normal when...

Are happening on dark or multi hued carpets that never get noticed? I'll speculate at least 10% of your jobs have urine, soda and dys residue wick ups to some degree that Mrs Piftleton never sees.. We/you go ( too) quicker and see less subtle discoloration compare to off whites and we all know how problematic deep spills can be on them.. The HWE curse, get ten times the soil out but face...
We're going to Phoenix AZ to clean Ronald McDonald Houses this October. The management staff is beyond THRILLED to have the MF crew come out and duplicate what we did in Tampa. We'll spend a day cleaning three homes (tile, vinyl, carpet, rugs & uph) and have our traditional two days of unique classes and cleaning demos at our hotel. I'm hoping to...
I was chatting with @Rolland the Gunslinger (who needs to do the right thing by Mikey's Boards and come post in some bloody threads); and he mentioned something really profound. He told me that he always feels a bit self conscious posting here because he understand's he's under the eyes of some very experienced people. Master Cleaners who have been at the game a lifetime,...

Pretty much just restaurants for my Scruz team and I. We dont see many gooey apartments do Flex Ice is our fave. I saw this Esteam Product in an email today, I bet that liquid gallon is super heavy at those dilution rates. We still have a #45 pounder to go though but I'd like to give it a try. Pretty sure Ray at CMS has it. Untitled.png

I recently interviewed Meg, Marty, Russ and Big Jim and Jimmy Ladwig about their CleanCo owning experience. Here are the answers that I felt helped convey their satisfaction.. Butler, Sapphire1200, Hydramaster CDS were your other choices for a PTO unit, why did Cleanco come out on top in your decision making process? I was on the hunt for a Butler. I found a newer, pretty low hour...
