image.jpg If you want to pre-order a Ziper SS there are two ways you can do it. If you already own a Zipper the handles are interchangeable and you may just want to order the head. 1.) pre-order the Zipper SS handle & head for 2500.00, or 2.) if you already own a Zipper you can order just the Zipper SS head for 1500.00! NOTE- We reccommend you have the equivalent of a 47...

I'm sure it has been done before. But I thought I would post a bit about the process. I had a couple manual vacuum hose reels that came with a truck I bought. The conversion was relatively easy. That being said, if you have zero welding or fab experience this might be very hard for you. We bought 2 DC motors $180 each, enough for two reels 1" channel-20' section 2" angle iron 6" x 1/4...
Just for Ofer. We'll be discussing how all the different machines such as the Cimex, CRBs, Large Orbit and Small Orbit OP's, 175s, Von Schrader and Soccer Cleats are used to achieve different results. Both residential and commercial techniques will be covered. We'll go over pad, brush and bonnet options as well as chemistry choices. Speaking of Chemistry, two lucky winners will score a...

Eight months old, never cleaned. nnPokTPFUkpIlIdNjG2DMw-xH0VhIjJh2U8_NeHIpip3Fi57cI47npEB6LkBfdEMiPQUENOnxZDfnkROdg=w1769-h995-no.jpg I used Chemspec Enzall boosted with BioSolv and Oxyclean. Red pad under the 175 got it to this.. 3SGSaVNl0S3IBVXRKJiSg7SQt2EeBBF9p4FaSUgLApLwa3yRJk-eJkdC0lNPprgdHZ-a5yUM0UWGbGBguw=w1769-h995-no.jpg Zipped it and while I flushed gobs of brown filth out it was streaked something horrible.

I doubt a single person on this site could tell you that carpet is as popular as ever in their area. Statistic after statistic shows massive shrinkage in soft flooring shrinkage.. Ask yourself these questions..

We have the dusting and drying mastered but continue to have problems with our rinsing process. Recently tried a pressure washer, which is working better then a hose and squeegee but after flushing it for an hour and suds still coming out it gets discouraging. Talked to someone about adding more GPM with a 500 gallon tank and pump which is our next course of action, but curious if yall have...

I think this interesting, I saw this rug in a clients home when inspecting some other work. Our competitor cleaned this rug and I know that they get 1.00 a foot to clean and 1.00 for every additional topical treatment they sell and apply to it. The little tags stapled to it are each worth $1.00 additional per square foot. This rug apparently was cleaned for about $7.00 per square foot. They...

It will either be in our normal spot in Huntington Beach, or our new building in Palm Springs. We are dealing with the city on some stuff to get into a new building. Check out the reveiws You...
Happy Sat! So yea, I see this style/type of tile in many homes around me. Slate with years of wax and crap on top. Pretty much every(nice) home built between 1950 and 1975 has this. Other than a bout load of scrubbing, what type of products would you use? Safe for stone, floor stripper? Zook up some normal powermax and go to town? Maybe some flex? Add some citrus solvent? Floor stripper...
I wrote a little blog post on our website about change and the new HydraMaster xDrive: http://tcdepot.com/the-times-are-a-changin/ It seems like in this industry more than others, individuals have a hard time with change. I've had customers who have tried the same exact product that was private labeled in a different bottle and said it wasn't as good as the product he was used...
Here is a 90 line Chinese rug treated both sides with Fiber Protector. Normally, it would wet out in just a moment or two in my Centrum Force Wash Tub. But instead, after 5 minutes of washing, nothing but beads of water. It took 10 minutes to wet out enough to sink and start swimming.
