Dont you get tired of cleaning clean carpet?

Post by Mo on Sat Sep 17, 2016 7:28 am

This biz is like a box chocolates. You never know what your going to get. The job before this one was 3000 sq feet of clean carpet and the next one wasn't that clean. I was just pissed that I had to use my vacuum on it

Run Forest Run!!

Ick.....how did you get blind-sided by that one? Did the customer tell you that it "only had a few stains"?

You guys should have seen the sludge coming out of the tank. It was in a rural community in the boonies so I just dumped there

"Few", few dozen, few hundred.

It's all the same, right?

It's all in the eye of the beholder and I beheld a lot of shit on that one. If that job was here locally I would have walked. It was a nice drive though

when ever we go to the rural areas I swear I always run into that same situation.

big time down play on the pet stains. about 10/10 of my last rural travel charge jobs its been the same thing.

you can tell if it wasnt like that they would never hire a professional carpet cleaner, its much more DIY out there.

Mike you have to find a pic a guy squatting to be the last contractor on that job.

AC, I knew it was strange he didn't question my trip charge. Worst part is that I forgot my Kirby and got the call a third of the way home slaping

Forgot the kirby? I think that I leave something behind on every job. Not the vacuum, but spotting sharks, water keys, etc.

Sometime they are still there the next time.

I blame it on lack of sleep.

On days where I am on limited sleep, I find that I forget a lot of things. I actually lost my wallet on Saturday and panicked for awhile until I found it inside the refrigerator. Very Happy

Lol, how the heck did you put your wallet in the fridge ??
I usually made a checklist in my mind to check everything before I leave the customer's driveway, that helps a lot.

Wallet in the fridge? Hard to say, I don't know why I have 6 tubs of unopened butter either.
