Haven't posted here in looks like seven years (hi!), but I thought I'd jump in and share this long but hopefully entertaining and maybe interesting thing: today I was a Regular Ol' Residential Carpet Cleaning Customer. So I hired my very first truckmount cleaner today. This horrified and amused and excited me. Why would I hire such a person, you ask? Well, mainly because it took me five or...
The foundation has no vapor barrier underneath, making it wet. I doubt this is off gassing. So is it browning or mildew? How would you fix this? IMG_0498.JPG
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...

After 2 years of trying to get this contract, we finally did! Our first high rise condo in downtown Vegas. (see pic below) And not a crappy run down one either. :) 14 floors of hallway carpet, lobby, wool area rugs. Approx. 55,000 sq. ft. of carpet. 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,...
