    Doing all the hallway carpets in a highrise today. Decided to use my Sprayborg since it is all carpet tile. Made $900 before noon then took off to pick up some rugs. I will finish tomorrow for a total of $1800 for aprox 6 hours labour and 2 hours driving time. The Sprayborg is so fast and easy and effective on commercial carpet. I have 3 more similar highrises in the next 2 weeks. IMG_20171206_104722.jpg

    Did 2 hallways for $400 in an hour and half. Got 5 more to do at $200 ea. Had to come home and wait for plumbers.

    It's about 5 minutes away at most.
    Oh yeah got Bob Evans at 9 another $200. It's a 10 minute drive and takes an hour and 15.

    I did $453 today and managed to soak myself with a broken water valve. Living the dream.

    I did a 70 foot carbon fiber, sportfishing yacht. Carpet only...encapped with an oreck XL (hard to pull hoses that far and very narrow "halls"). Two hours $465.
    PS boat goes 50 knotts wide open and burns about 230 gph at that speed, crusies at 35 burning 120gph. Cleaning costs are the least of their expenses :-). Holds 2300 gallons plus or minus.

    Been cleaning all day again...

    Tonight since about 5 pm after replacing the wiper blades on the truck my wife uses the most...and I told her to get new blades on it this Fall while still warm out :hopeless::hopeless::hopeless::dejection:

    Why do they do this to me....6 degrees out and now fix stuff...

    Plus my phone has been non stop all day as well with questions, situations, stuff.....:errf:

    I am going to bed soon so can attack it all again tomorrow.

    It is for some reason still busy as heck (good...good...remind myself....good....)

    But I hate cold weather a lot!

    Ok...will move on to another thread to be the whiner.... :shifty:

    Make sure the equipment is safe, have a beer and go to bed. There's always tomorrow and the day after that.

    If he does sleep, he probably dreams about work.

    Finished the job today. 27 hallways plus the office and small lobby. 2 hours today. Total job $1740 before taxes. 5 hours labour plus 2 hours driving time. 1 hour prep time in the shop. 4 pads at $5 each. Manager complimented me on a great job and the carpets dried in less than an hour. They have a ton of vinyl and ceramic tile. Have to talk to Willy about that

    I just bought one of these for occasional ECO-13-EX_SideLeft_web.png residential use. I like that it doesn't have the tank pump and other hardware.

    I blew out my back today. ..... This seemed like a good place to whine about it.

    BTW Mark, I used the P-Lime on a pissy couch yesterday and also on white carpet today. Worked very well.
