We have several pros listed on here....they don't post, but they are listed.

I was always told that the difference between a pro and an amateur was the check and size of his shoes. It works for basketball players anyway.

There is a point where you have to give into weather and reschedule. Not only is that hard on the body, but the machine will not be pleased either.

Hey Dave. The final straw for me discontinuing service in Phoenix was when I was sitting in bumper to bumper traffic on the 101 freeway 110 degrees and my AC went out Evil or Very Mad

I took my shirt off and used a spray bottle with water to try and stay cool. Everyone beside me look at me like if I was crasy and they looked so cool in there cars Very Happy

I did that before too Mo, outside of Dallas in a blown '84 Monte Carlo. I had to run the heater on high to keep the engine from over-heating.

It didn't, but I sure did.

I use a spray bottle with oil in it so it cools me down and shirtless it looks great in front of my customers

Welcome David, I was surprised you're Mo's buddy, he always think of other cleaners his competitors Very Happy
My worst heat experience was on summer of 2003 in Scottsdale, picking up a used car I bought off of ebay, it was 116 degrees, and the car I bought was a black car, as soon as we're done with paperwork, we got the heck out of there Embarassed
