Yea its against my religion to do anything for free. 🙂
Checking out their social media, they are very active and seem to have plenty of surfaces to clean. They have an active Twitter and FB page.

We are covering around 500 miles tomorrow. They are all the rest of the quote on my ‘nomadic bank run’ contract.
We are being paid to travel there and back, not by the banking chain, but by a restoration company, whom have work and assessment work for us to do…


7 small towns, all the way from where I live , south, all the way to the Northern border of Washington State…

ROAD TRIP!!!

We have two Vibes and we're wearing them out! Not much on residential, but WAY much on CGD. We're also using them on VCT (cleaning after stripping - we don't use mops at all) and other surfaces.

No more VLM. Not using that method anymore.
My wife was asking me the other day to put our house on my cleaning schedule. I asked her if she wanted HWE or VLM. She said, “Use the truckmount”. She went on to say that I should quit with the VLM. That my customers trusted me but didn’t necessarily believe me. I gave it some thought and realized how much I had to explain VLM. Hoses and a carpet wand, never any questions.
Haven’t had any complaints but I believe that I have sold myself as much as I have sold my customers. I’m not giving VLM a label of right or wrong. It’s not right for me anymore.
That’s noble and all, but why in God’s name would you ask her🤷🏼‍♂️😳 Honey, I’m mowing the lawn today, would you like me to use the zero turn, or walk behind? Now, would that be the gas or electric one🤷🏼‍♂️😏

This is my 13th year in business. I’m enjoying life being self employed. The first couple of years I hated it and wanted to quit. She kicked me in the ass and kept me on track. Her opinion holds a lot of weight.

Lol, mine works side by side with me for 35 out of the 46 of marriage and writes the checks. If I endorsed my check, the bank wouldn’t recognize it. She does tell me if the carpet needs cleaning or I’m waiting a little too long to mow🙄 As with all my customers, Just make the ugly go away, I don’t care how you do it! Shut up Marty!

I explain nothing, i just deliver results. So far, i use tm for urine, tiles & grout. I just did several vlm on rugs and carpet this week so far...

You worry about your methods to much.

I don't feel like he's worried about method as much as efficacy.

Some people have trouble sleeping at night with spray, rub & run in a home.

Cleaning the tops of the fibers works great on commercial carpet where there is no depth to the pile.

You're expecting too much of the system if you're wanting the pad to pull soils from more than the top of the fiber.

I would suggest you HWE your rugs, then once the bulk of the soil is removed, pad for appearance.
