    What's the different about alkaline tile&grout cleaner or acid tile&grout cleaner?

    We always start with Grout Master (ALK), rinse really well. if there are any stains or darker areas left we spot treat those areas with acid. Rarely do we clean a whole floor with acid, but we are 99 percent residential. Always protect stainless appliances when applying acid anywhere even close...

    House Call Pro alternative?

    Gotcha...looks like Roland has some options for you. Just out of curiosity, have you ever thought about cleaning full time? I took a leap of faith, quit my job, went into debt... and I was scared as hell. 13 years later... I couldn't be happier, we are doing really well.

    House Call Pro alternative?

    Mr Steamer...don't be afraid to grow, it will hold you back from your full potential. I find that Housecall, without doubt, pays for itself. Housecall Pro has increased our sales big time, customers love the communication, we now have 159 5 star reviews on Google, repeat customers and...

    I would try some more effective, lower cost gorilla type marketing such as network groups, door to door, facebook groups ect...those lead sources can suck you dry if you let them.

    Buying a New Tile & Grout Spinner - What's Works for you?

    We have 2 turbos and keep one set as brush and one with nylon ring. Both have their uses. We use the heck out of them, they both need ring replacements. My brush is down to the plastic on the front side, just realized this today. That's not good. I like when the nylon rings are brand new and...

    What is this block for?

    Thanks Todd, so in a pinch it looks like I could just bypass that for now and run that blue pressure hose directly to the unloader until I can get a new nipple?

    What is this block for?

    So I developed a bad water leak coming from the brass nipple connector that connects the unloader to this block. The brass piece is where you can see the white teflon tape, and it's leaking from the side that goes into the block. This is a TCS Chief II, my question is what does this block do...

    Online booking: Pro's and Con's

    I get a lot of online bookings and love it! What I like most is we are seeing a lot of people up-selling themselves when they get to the booking page by adding stretching, upholstery, tile and Scotchgaurd. I never sold much of that because I was not a good salesman. Now they just add it...

    Valves, Check Valves

    I am tired of wands that drip on peoples wood floors...so I am on a mission to simplify my wands so they all have the same valves and parts so I can keep them in stock and change out as needed. I am not sure why, but my two main wands are from different manufacturers but look identical, except...

    The reverse Angie's List

    I always joked that there should be something like this. However something tells me this has potentially huge issues. I have a dozen folks in the dozen years I have been at it. I'm not sure I would want these batsh!t crazy people to see what I posted about them.
