I was not telling you something new.. i was asserting a fact. It's not gonna collect dust in some garage corners...

yes it will
and they do now all over America


I'll bet my last Little Debbie Mike uses his less than he did a year ago.
The evidence?
His thread some months ago asking if all carpets needed mechanical agitation.
It means he was looking for validation because he doesn't use it on all carpet jobs anymore

same with the thread last year when asking if easy hose attachment vac was needed .
I called it when I asked what new vac WITHOUT hose attachment he was dry humping now
a day or two later, we learned


the Lil Peedie CRB will lose it luster in a year or three when Mike falls in love with the next Oryx that tingles his loins

CRB's look a winner for tile and LVT (doesn't sling slop as bad as rotary)
and if pulled in the right direction is better in the grout lines and grooved/textured LVT
But on soiled carpet, nothing shears soil better than a rotary ..NOTHING
anyone that says different, is blind, stOOpit or in denial because they're too lazy to bring out the heavy rotary

period

I ain't arguing with that..
That's why i bring my 175 still. I still rather use CRB if i can.Almost all of my account have pets. It deals with odor the best as it dig crud out. But will use 175 on high soiled traffic path, works better and faster.

that's the biggest one ...if they like and trust you, that's 87.9666666666666666666% of the game ...regardless of the biz





what new tech?
it's squirt and suck, spray 'n wipe or smear pixie dust slurry around .
It ain't rocket science .
The major improvements in the last 30 years, hasn't been the gear.
It's been the juices ....no longer does a cleaner need to be an alchemist for difficult/more advanced spotting needs....there's a bottle on the shelf now for every need





I discovered 25 years ago the majority are simply stupid and don't know it .
It's a fact of life, and getting worse in ALL segments of society and work place.
As the "stupid gene" continues and proliferates at an ever increasingly more rapid pace

Actually......

The REEL discovery is managing your money and having an exit strategy early on so you don't have to go work for the man in yore old age


Especially after you were the self proclaimed top carpet cleaner and hammer swinger in the universe

? Has noone but Bob Pruitt, Marty and I noticed the LVP revolution going on?
Contractor just tore down a wall in our Cape house and we are installing 1000 sq ft of LVP

Quite a few of my customers are installing it in their summer homes

Better than wood in a beach climate

Why you care so much; because you are passionate or in other words. We all suffer from over thinking it. Lots of time driving that wand or rotary tool and the mind starts to think and wander. I suffer from alot of over thinking.

can't disagree with that

I've worked all my life
Made as little as a dollar an hour to as much or more than $200 an hour

at the end of the day I have the same amount .
$23 bucks of crumpled/crinkled bills stuffed in my front pocket, and two weeks late on the 'lectric bill

I've determined it's a "management problem"
