We have the dusting and drying mastered but continue to have problems with our rinsing process. Recently tried a pressure washer, which is working better then a hose and squeegee but after flushing it for an hour and suds still coming out it gets discouraging. Talked to someone about adding more GPM with a 500 gallon tank and pump which is our next course of action, but curious if yall have...

I think this interesting, I saw this rug in a clients home when inspecting some other work. Our competitor cleaned this rug and I know that they get 1.00 a foot to clean and 1.00 for every additional topical treatment they sell and apply to it. The little tags stapled to it are each worth $1.00 additional per square foot. This rug apparently was cleaned for about $7.00 per square foot. They...
May filled up incredibly fast and I have had to turn a few people away, so we added another class to the end of the year. If anyone is interested, let me know. RIGHT NOW, the location is tentative. It will either be in our normal spot in Huntington Beach, or our new building in Palm Springs. We are dealing with the city on some stuff to get into a new building. Check out the reveiws You...
Happy Sat! So yea, I see this style/type of tile in many homes around me. Slate with years of wax and crap on top. Pretty much every(nice) home built between 1950 and 1975 has this. Other than a bout load of scrubbing, what type of products would you use? Safe for stone, floor stripper? Zook up some normal powermax and go to town? Maybe some flex? Add some citrus solvent? Floor stripper...
I wrote a little blog post on our website about change and the new HydraMaster xDrive: http://tcdepot.com/the-times-are-a-changin/ It seems like in this industry more than others, individuals have a hard time with change. I've had customers who have tried the same exact product that was private labeled in a different bottle and said it wasn't as good as the product he was used...
Here is a 90 line Chinese rug treated both sides with Fiber Protector. Normally, it would wet out in just a moment or two in my Centrum Force Wash Tub. But instead, after 5 minutes of washing, nothing but beads of water. It took 10 minutes to wet out enough to sink and start swimming.

Yelper that send PM for estimates never call. Maybe they're just all price shoppers or I'm terrible about responding. I tell them to call for a rough estimate and that we can come out for a exact quote. 1 lady said I was the only company out of 9, that didn't spit out a price. Told her that we are not the cheapest cleaner, we focus on quality and happy clients. Our reviews reflect that.

Can I add this to my rinse to get that pop effect? @ how much would I add to my hydroforce also to get that pop effect?
I was called out to do a small carpet repair for a guy. Retired military, extremely picky customer. I fixed his carpet and he read on my card that I did granite counters. He had another company that runs TV commercials come out and clean and seal his counters. He was not happy with the results they gave him. I looked at them and I surprised at how bad they looked. Apparently this company uses...
and they say it couldn't be done..
