Busted!!!!!

Post by Mo on Thu Mar 12, 2015 3:43 pm

This is funny and it has happened to you unless you're a 3 room for $49.99 hack.

I received a call yesterday from Cynthia she was scheduled for a cleaning this Friday she left a message saying was going to have to cancel because she was going back to Phoenix and that she would call me back this summer. I called he back left a voice mail letting her know that I received her message and that I would see her this summer.

Today I was running behind on my first job so I had to call Hillary my second job to let her know I was running behind. Hillary its Green Carpet Cleaning just calling to let you know Im running behind and I wont make at 2:00. She said: Who are you? I said "Green Carpet Cleaning" She said. " I have Stanley Steamer coming between 2 and 5. Me " Are you on Sate Street?" She said yes.  I said, "Are you Hillary" She said No I'm Cynthia.
I mistakenly called the lady that canceled on me laughing Ok let me know If can be assistance to you in the future

Ya they are known for 5 day dry times here LOL  

no dry strokes,   filter changes/clean outs are probably rare

The dumbest thing about a franchise is you could have 1 owner in an area doing a terrible job just not caring and it passes right on to you

Around here it is clean without any prespray, just hit it with more psi and higher heat. Horrible dry times and horrible results.

AC is right, they must have some really good cleaners, otherwise the franchise would have gone out of business decades ago. I never hear about them, but there has to be some out there.

You know IF they turn the psi down to about 250, they could cut the dry times to 2-4 hours.
