The World's Greatest Carpet Cleaning Forum

Hello Everyone, I grew up in the floor-covering business and know a great deal about installation and materials but I hope to be able to walk after I retire and have decided to look into another honest living: carpet and surface extraction. I have a mechanical mind and to me, common sense just makes sense. My first two questions out of what will probably be many are: 1. Can a hard work...

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

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...
