    What’s your carpet cleaning pet peeve?

    Pull up to a house and the moving truck is there and the movers are carrying IN boxes. Not making it up!!

    Water coming out of front of Thermalwave II

    Thanks as well for radiator repair shop hint. Is it difficult to pull off the heat exchanger?

    Water coming out of front of Thermalwave II

    Ok thanks! i don’t think that’s it, but I might as well pull the drain and check it!

    Water coming out of front of Thermalwave II

    Why, thank you very much Todd for a quick answer right to the point! I think I’ll try that for now and at some point in the future I might put the heat back in, assuming 99 other things don’t happen to this CRAZY machine!!

    Water coming out of front of Thermalwave II

    My 2008 Blueline Vortec Thermalwave II has water coming out through the front as I was trying to de-winterize it. Unfortunately, I am wondering if my first winterizing attempt in 12 years last November failed to change out the water in the heat exchanger and ice wreaked havoc on the heat...

    Anyone Used a Roller Vac?

    Thanks for your help. The roller vacdoes seem kind of awkward and very cumbersome to actually lug around and take up precious van space. I’m looking for something that is quick and easy to dry up a heavy duty carpet flushing (on a severely trashed-out carpet, 1 out of a 100 jobs) at the end. I’m...

    Anyone Used a Roller Vac?

    A retired old-timer wants to sell me his roller vac complete with weights for $250. I’m thinking of using it as a less clumsy alternative to the water claw on dry-outs and to quickly dry trashed-out carpets that required heavy flushing. Such drying would be done as a final pass at the end of...

    What’s your carpet cleaning pet peeve?

    Holy shriek, earplugs! A seemingly too obvious idea, but a good one! I’m gonna go instead with a pair of disposable foam Flents Ear Stopples stored in the uniform shirt pocket though. They’ll still cut down the high-pitched dog barks by 99% to a very comfortable level! And take away the pain...

    What’s your carpet cleaning pet peeve?

    Same! Except in my neck of the woods outside NYC, I’ve been listening to customers tell me for the last 20 years how they’re going to be ripping out all the carpets and putting in wood floors.

    What’s your carpet cleaning pet peeve?

    Time-wasters. Customers that seem determined to hold us back from starting the job as long as possible with too much stupid banter or too many ridiculous questions or micromanagement or making mountains out of molehills. For chrissakes, if it were a $20k restoration job I’d be glad to take some...

    How do I get Mike Ochoa of Boss Optima to pay me what he owes me?

    You guys are right, gotta move on!! Will do! First a little humor though. What's the difference between a dead dog and lawyer lying in the road? A. The dog has skid marks leading up to it!! What's the difference between dead lawyer in road and dead a-hole carpet cleaning sub-contracting scam/...

    How do I get Mike Ochoa of Boss Optima to pay me what he owes me?

    Apparently, that is him. I’m in Connecticut and he in Arizona, so I’ve never met him in person, only listened to his lying and dishonesty over the phone. He has some kind of nationwide marketing going on whereby he gets carpet cleaners around the country to do subcontract jobs for him and then...

    How do I get Mike Ochoa of Boss Optima to pay me what he owes me?

    Yup, I’ll get the customer info out, thanks.At this point, I realize I won’t get paid by the notorious POS Mike Ochoa. Just puttin’ it out there alongside of dozens of others here on the boards who got scammed here by him!

    How do I get Mike Ochoa of Boss Optima to pay me what he owes me?

    Yeah, I suppose you’re right about taking down info. I guess I got a little frustrated and carried away about the notorious sleazy scumbag Mike Ochoa. The customer had nothing to do with it and has long gone somewhere since it was a move-out cleaning. Unfortunately, I seem to have lost the...
