    Good. I guess he was ready to retire for a long time before he actually did. I'm sure he was the best competition Jamie could want.

    I don't know Peter. If you do, it might be nice to let him know that he has to take ownership of his Facebook page and announce that the company is under new ownership - ownership that makes a commitment to customer service.

    I took a couple of courses with Rocky, he is quite the character. Never had a lot of patience for the customer. I knew his dad Eric, who was quite the gentleman. I used to work for one of their competitors. Granville was one of the oldest rug cleaners in the lower mainland.

    I’m interested in knowing when the rugs are dry. Due to the limited dry room rack space, I was wondering what moisture meter I should get. I would like one with a digital readout, In order to confirm how dry it is. I know there are a few of them that will beep if there is moisture. I want to KNOW how dry it is. Any recommendations?

    Just a hydrosensor. It will pick up the moisture on you fingers. If it doesn't beep, the rug is dry.

    Is someone having a school that teaches you how to vacuum?

    I can vacuum just fine Bob. I use a Proteam. I used the compound for the first time yesterday. I know the basics of area rug cleaning. I started with vacuuming the face, turned it over, vacuumed the back, turned it over, and vacuumed the face again. THEN, I used my electric sprayer(Penguin Gentoo), sprayed a light amount of Releasit DS2, put the compound on, used my Brushpro to agitate it in. I then used 3 small snail fans to force dry for 30 min, while I used a Grandi groomer to expediate drying. I then put the collector trays on my Brushpro, and proceeded to ‘collect’ the compound. THEN, I put a brand new bag in my Proteam, and proceeded to vacuum the 5 by 8 area rug for 20 min. After all of this, I picked up an edge of the rug, and flexed it to look deep into the fibre. THERE WAS STILL A SHYTE TON OF CONPOUND LEFT.

    P.S. - yes, I know how to vacuum.....

    3 companies all linked together. Rocky was a$$hole to deal with and would piss off the pope. Peter and Ara are way more customer oriented and quite business like. This is the second company they've bought out as they took over one of the local Langenwalter franchises that was small, but quite profitable. Look around the website. They have and do some amazing stuff.

    It is performing a very simple function and works just fine. It's easy to use, we have moisture sensors that cost 10x this we bought when we did a lot of water damage and they never get used to just check if rugs are dry. We've used ours for 6 years and never even had to replace the battery.....again, don't over think it :biggrin::biggrin:

    The Proteam Upright has the worse brush roll of all...

    Virtually no interaction with the fibers.

    Kirby, Sanitaire, Royal or Oreck.

    Ok, age old question..... dealing with urine on wool carpet/rugs... what is the go-to product for removal? Not only the smell, but the stain?

    Tumble duster,water, DiChlor, vinegar, then if even needed what ever "stuff" you want.
    Oh and by the way you have the absolute worst vacuums for ORC. An old Eureka with a Metal BEATER BAR is the best then maybe a good Sanitare. The back only the back. You can use a Pile Lifter for the face yarns. We pile lift every rug.
    We have the same Dri-Ease Moisture probe from 1994. Had to modify it because the shape of 9volt batteries changed.
