This time last year I remember telling my crew that by this year’s cleaning season our phones would be ringing off the hook. Well here we are and I wasn’t kidding them. We are currently losing more work from lack of available crews each week than we earn.
The biggest problem with an explosion of new customers is not having the professional cleaning technicians needed to service all of them. Some customers even need the work done ASAP which leaves it difficult to schedule them over already scheduled crews.
That is just one of my new problems these days. The other is that my website optimization and social posts have ranked me high for rug and upholstery cleaning drop off service. What!? I’m not ready for those new customers calls too, yikes! You see, all of our work is usually going to somewhere else to clean for someone, not having them bring things to us.
Most of my days are now figuring how to get things optimized and locate us a close to the interstate work shop very soon. A place that’s easy for customers to find so they can bring us what they need cleaned.
When do people need to drop of rugs and furniture to us? So far some have acquired them and just want them cleaned before being brought into their homes. Others are moving and want them cleaned before they enter the new home. I’m sure there are lots of other reasons to need to drop off stuff for the cleaners but that’s the largest types of customers so far.
So, the long story short is drop offs and pick up and delivery service coming soon! 🙂
Hi, Allen here wanting to share this cool video below from Melissa. Not only will she teach you about the amazing power and awesomeness of using baking soda for a ton of cleaning tasks, but also it’s properties to neutralize the toughest odors in the strangest places too.
I always tell my customers how important it is to start out with the least abusive cleaning method that you have for any type of cleaning problem. Using all natural things like baking soda and vinegar is safer and a heck of a lot healthier for our eyes, skin and lungs.
You can always work your way up the cleaning solutions if something does not work well.
Enjoy the video below as Mellissa has a fun and intertaining way of teaching what she knows and by all means please do leave any comments below and share this with a friend via social buttons at bottom of page …Thanks.

What’s The Difference – Carpet Shampooer Vs Steam Cleaning
I’ll start this review by asking you if you have ever used a real carpet shampooer before? Some will remember them and others will not. Like the ones back in the old days where you squeezed a trigger to let a small amount of super soapy and sudsy solution on the carpet while rotary brushes scrubbed the soap into the fibers. If you have then you probably understand why the carpets seem to always get dirtier after a cleaning.
The whole secret to keeping your clean carpets looking clean longer is to remove as much soapy and sticky residues as possible from the fibers.
It takes a good emulsifying pre-spray with a little alkalinity, a powerful hot water jetting action and vacuum system to get that part cleaned efficiently. Past residues like carpet soap, sugary drinks and yes, even store bought carpet cleaning solutions can be fast Re-Soil Attractants.
Next time you try the diy method remember to watch for the extra soapy areas and use a de-foamer solution on those areas. The de-foamer (liquid or powder) will dissipate the suds build up that clogs and downgrades the carpet cleaning machines ability to extract the water and dirt. You will usually know when you are going over those heavily spot cleaned areas by the sound of the bogging vacuum sound. It will be starving for air as the suds are taking it all away as it’s traveling to the waiste tank.
The cost of carpet is at an all time high so why not give our carpets every chance in the world to last as long as they can? I highly suggest to never use a carpet shampooer again but always use a good ‘Hot Water Extraction’ method! Less soil collection makes vacuuming easier and adds years to the life of your carpet.
Here’s a short clip of a few months old coffee stain in a customer’s hallway…
If something is feeling weird when you touch your carpet it’s probably because it’s loaded with dried soapy residue left over from last cleaning episode.
Solution; Go to your local cleaning, janitorial supply store and purchase some de-foamer, take it home and use plain water and the defoamer to clean your carpet again.
