    A list for how to clean different carpet types / fibers

    It's good, as long as your techs can identify what fibers they are working with.

    Ductz Franchise Question

    A quote from their website: "We’ve discovered that the average cost to clean is room is-you guessed it- 10 bucks!" Disregarding the obvious typo, my question is this...if you've discovered the average COST to clean a room is $10, then why would you CHARGE $10 to clean a room? Furthermore...

    Seriously considering VLM - Have some newbie questions

    I haven't decided against it, I just can't afford it at the moment. I picked up a TM earlier this year with the plans to have it completely restored but a surprise expense ate up the funds that I had put away to have that done. I've since been busy getting my life back together and now I'm...

    Seriously considering VLM - Have some newbie questions

    Awesome, thanks for the response guys. I have a water claw flashspotter sitting around that should work like that sos tool. I'll check out that vacaway sample pack as well. Thanks!

    Seriously considering VLM - Have some newbie questions

    I am making plans to purchase a Mytee Eco-17 machine for residential VLM work. Since I had originally planned on HWE cleaning, my knowledge of VLM is a little short and I find myself trying to cram as much knowledge on the subject as I can. My first step has been getting the process down. If I...

    New Mytee Orbital for $2,195.

    Good luck with the OP idea, hopefully you can bring prices down. They really seem to be way too high for what they are. The differences between an OP and a 175 do not warrant doubling the price in my opinion.

    New Mytee Orbital for $2,195.

    It's funny how prophetic this turned out to be, lol

    Host Liberator as a CRB for VLM?

    Yeah, that was where I had checked. Nothing in yet, but maybe I'll get in touch with sales rep and ask for a heads up when they get one in. What did your refurb units cost you, if you don't mine me asking, @smart n kleen ?

    Host Liberator as a CRB for VLM?

    I like that idea. So far a quick check of ebay/mytee.com/other distros gave zero available refurb mytee units but I'll be looking at other oscillating machines as well. Anything that will give me good results in both a residential/commercial setting should work.

    Host Liberator as a CRB for VLM?

    It is definitely quite large. I gave it a spin in the house and found it a bit bulky. Probably better in a commercial setting and I've got a Cimex that would probably be better suited for that task.

    SDS SHEETS!

    Thank you for pointing that out. I had no idea it had switched :D

    SDS SHEETS!

    Sometimes also referred to as MSDS or Material Safety Data Sheets. Yes, these are a MUST! This is especially true if you have employees, since many states require employees who handle chemicals to have access to the MSDS. I managed a building that handled it's own maintenance, and I was checked...

    Host Liberator as a CRB for VLM?

    Pro-Tip: I expand my search area to the maximum distance I'm willing to drive for whatever it is I'm looking for. In this case I wound up driving nearly 3 hours. Not a big deal in my minivan Only cost me about $25 in gas. Sent from my LG-D850 using TMF Forums mobile app

    Host Liberator as a CRB for VLM?

    Craigslist. Got it and a kaivac kaizen for $100/ea. Guy's brother picked them up for free from a business that attempted in-house cleaning but found it wasn't cost effective. They were gonna toss the machines after storing them for a couple years unused. At first I thought the asking price was...
