    Home owner was to be back sooner than expected so no time to come back and deal with any "HWE Issues" that sometimes occur..

    Compound /CRB takes about the same amount of time as single wanding but almost zero risk, on and on immaculate homes such as this one, it's perfect alternative for periodic maintenance..


    Take a guess how many pounds..

    Can you share a link on the specific compound you use, and the types of brushes you prefer on the crb?

    I'm very worried about you Cleatus...

    The link is above.


    Soft brushes on this job due to the silk but most are fine with the mediums.

    @Bob Pruitt how did your Compound job go the other day? Do you feel you left any behind?


    This job has very thin/not dense, off white, custom tufted rugs. It's very obvious when and where anything is out of sorts. Most of you goobers would have a heart attack dealing with this stuff..

    Right now, my brushes are filthy, because I use my crb to agitate my prespray, so I’ll need a set of brushes just for the compound.

    These crb that you get CCA and renovator trays are built well. Even with just those, you can get most of compound out. Post vacuum is still needed tho. So I still dont see the issue with compound unless you do it wrong.

    I carry it on the van because occasionally I get something that I don't think will clean any other way. Yesterday was a viscose bleeder that the Client said had sentimental value...and then said that it was already ruined and for me to do my best. Don't believe that. It has sentimental value...believe that. So my near neutral pre-spray made it bleed when I tested. My dry cleaning ready to use cleaner made it bleed. Large Persian type rug. Lots of vacuuming front and back then compound and crb. 4 or 5 handfuls of compound and the Sanitaire to finish... after running the crb with the renovator trays. She was very happy.

    I never, ever believe those reassurances either. Just like the one where they say "Do anything you want, it can't possibly look worse"

    Yes, it surely can...

    easiest way to clean them on the job is tip the CRB on its side and turn it on, let it spin while you run the vac hose over the brushes..

    then last job of the day after u scrub the last room pull the brushes, steam the inside of the crb and brushes with your wand, then vac hose the brushes. super ez and its always put away clean
    if you let the shed build up youll strip a gear pretty quick

    I tried the compound once right when the strong dry crbs came out maybe 6 years ago... it was on wall to wall carpet that wasnt very dirty and it was kind of a pain in the ass

    prob didnt do it right but the stuff got all over the baseboards lol, ended up taking forever having to go through the place and vac then wipe them all down
