Yeah, I read that somewhere in the forum.

Now I'm thinking about the what IF'S....................................................

What if a customer says you stole a $3,000 ROLEX?

What if a customer get electricuted?

What if a grandfatherclock falls over because of my hoses?

What if a Vase gets bumped and breaks?

Considering how well Chem-Dry owners do, it wouldn't be such a bad thing.

One thing I have noticed about this forum is there is alot of joking around going on and comments that will leave You wondering what in the world is this person talking about?

After You wade through the garbage there are actually some decent responses to questions in here.


Thanks Again,
CHRIS

What if you just forget about carpet cleaning and start a different business?

When choosing a good portble follow these important rules.

1. Sucking

2. Pumping

3.humping

4.Is it Gully?

Sucking it must suck hard and deep to extract the water.

pumping it must pump long and hard for hours deep into the carpet.

humping if its to heavey you cant hump it up and down stairs

Gully do I even have to explain about the Gulliness?

You really want HEAT. Part of the cleaning pie.

Did you look for a spitfire 3.2.?? I almost bought one of them.

New I believe they were 12,995.00, too much for a small TM.

Thats no Problem what so ever!

My thinking about the business now is the R.O.I. , How soon can a new cleaner expect to gain return on the equipment alone.

Lets think about it how may carpets would You have to clean to pay off machinery ranging from $5-9K

Thats a lots of dirty carpets And then at that break even point is the equipment still in good enough condition to keep on going???

Someone please reason with me or help me talk this out, I need to see some realistic numbers here because just beginning this can be discouraging.
