    They rent Cimex's with pads $70.00 a day, $140.00 weekend, $350.00 week.
    Might be worth renting one!

    You need to be careful post padding. If you get it too dry you can damage the carpet. A Cimex or sprayborg used properly will usually dry in 1-2 hours without post padding. Its a good option for heavily soiled areas but not necessary for everything.

    It's an ideal opportunity. You're not too invested and yet you still make money.

    Sounds crazy, but I’d rent the Cimex and drive the 2 hrs. to get it. Course I drove from OKC to Douglas Ga. to buy a trailer. Cimex is the ticket!

    Ok, that sounds a little crazy but I like the idea of not having an expensive machine collecting dust. I think I would do that.

    Matt, once you try a Cimex, and find out how easy they are to operate, you’ll want one.... I was a die hard HWE guy until I bought my machine. Think of this way, DO YOU WANT TO BE A ONE TRICK PONY?

    Jeff is right in that it gives you options. Even on the same project.

    Before I started spending time on here I did, because I thought it was all SCAMpooing. After seeing the results and hearing about how easy it is it seems stupid to not be offering other methods. If it cleans the carpet and makes a profit, why not?
    I don't mind learning something new especially if it means I can increase my market share.

    Matt, it allows you to reach beyond 1-2 floors, any high rise you drive by, more than likely is being cleaned by the VLM method .... if done properly, it is a very good way to clean... If you get one, BUY A REALLY GOOD VACUUM to go with it. Think of it as an integral part of the system. I did 18,000 sqft with it, the second time I ever used it. Just don’t cheap out on the chemistry. Between HWE, and VLM, YOU CAN CLEAN ANYWHERE......

    Just use a buffer if you have one. A stack of bonnets, a brush and some of Rick's grey pads and a gallon of realeasit.

    How is it a scam if that's what the customer wants?
