    Who's company is this? The first note needs to be written with business format and less personalized. That was annoying to read.

    yes we know for the most part wearing booties while cleaning doesn't make sense unless you are moving furniture.
    The request by the customer is an emotional request and not a logical request.
    If you've been married long enough you may have learned that its difficult to argue logically with an emotional woman. SO most smart men just cave in and say-- "Yes Dear"
    happy wife = happy life
    happy customer = $
    wear the booties-- Its show the owner you respect their home. For some, a woman's home is an extension of her body.

    Yeah, what company is this?

    I actually like it and it's mostly great policy, but the writing is disjointed and some of it is annoying to the point of eye roll inducing.

    I'd much rather educate the owner on the idiocy than go along with it.

    There are definitely times for booties, we buy cases of them. Cleaning with them just makes no sense. Keep their dirt off your shoes??? :oldrolleyes:

    Trust me, the guy who owns this company is NOT an idiot. He runs one of the biggest rug cleaning plants in the area. He has a 10-12 truck operation, and is a lifetime cleaner.... I overheard him say that he is 58 years old. He has a hard surface division, and soft surface division. I personally wear booties on every residential job I do. I feel it shows respect to my clients, if anyone here doesn’t agree, you are welcome to your opinion.... Joe Appleby definitely IS NOT AN IDIOT... I only wish I could run a business as successfully as him...

    I just wanted to add, he’s doing 20k A WEEK IN RUGS.... most of us don’t do that in A YEAR.... ITS BETTER TO KEEP ONES MOUTH SHUT AND APPEAR TO BE AN IDIOT, THAN OPEN IT, AND REMOVE ALL DOUBT.....

    Joe isn't an IDIOT and I wouldn't call him one.

    I said wearing booties when it makes no sense, it is idiotic. Respect for their dirty carpet. I don't understand how wearing booties shows respect. ???

    We are in the process of cleaning. I can see at the time of an estimate, post cleaning, new carpet. But during cleaning? It makes no sense.

    Like I said Richard, everyone is welcome to their own opinion. I was NEVER allowed to wear shoes in the house growing up.... I NEVER wear shoes in my own house, so why the FOOK would I do it in a clients home?.... I feel it’s disrespectful, call it idiotic if you want, but I don’t feel that way...
