Floor that didn't appear dirty until cleaned

At first glance this floor did not seem extremely dirty. A good floor will hide the dirt and built up grease. This floor was doing its job. You can see where I have cleaned the floor already.  Next to the clean part, the cleaning solution has been applied and is breaking up the grease. At the top of the picture the floor is untouched with no cleaning solution. The untouched floor was normal looking to the home owner because it had always looked this way. Once the cleaning process was started, it became evident just how dirty the floor really was.

To see if your floor could use a good cleaning, take a look at the grout around the edges of the room and compare it to the grout in the middle of the room.

Next step: call Carpet Geek!

We have the knowledge, products and tools to get the floor looking great again.

Have you ever tried to clean the grout in your tile? This can be very difficult if you do not have the cleaning products and tools to do it. This kitchen was in need of some TLC. The grout had heavy oil build up on it.

Before

After we applied a high quality cleaning solution, the grout was scrubbed and then cleaned with a special tile cleaning tool.This tool uses steam, to get a deep clean, and rinses the tile clean. The floor is now clean enough to eat off!

After

It’s that time of the year again. Soon family will be arriving at the house to visit. You might be ready, but is your carpet? Do you have the house cleaned, but know that the carpet is in desperate need of some attention? Do you want the children rolling around on dirty carpet? Are you pulling the area rugs over to cover up the drink spills in the living room? Do you want the mother in law to turn up her nose at the sight of the carpet? Then it is time to get the carpet cleaned!

Is everyone going to be in the kitchen cooking, but the tile has grease build up on it? Does the grout in front of the sink and stove not match the color of the grout under the table? We can make them match again.

Are you afraid to let people sit on the couch and watch the game while dinner is cooking? Is the favorite recliner collecting oil from all of the naps taken in it? We can clean it out.

Call Carpet Geek to take care of it for you! We will have your floors cleaned up and ready for the company to come over. So sit back and relax and let us do the hard work for you!

Don’t forget to ask about getting carpet protector applied to the carpet to help fight off the food and drink spills that are bound to happen.

Don’t wait until it is too late to get scheduled for your carpet cleaning.

Equipment Questions

Leave a comment

Sometimes I get calls asking what kind of equipment I use. I have to ask a few questions to understand exactly what the person is really wanting to know.

This question can imply a few things. I will discuss them over the next few posts.

The first thing people are concerned with is me having a truck-mounted machine.

When I first started out I was using what is called a “portable” machine. This is an electric machine that I actually push into the house and use water out of the sink to fill the machine. The machine weighed about 70 pounds and I would have to pull it up and down stairs. This was hard on my back and was really slow. Don’t get me wrong, I could still do a great job, but it just took forever. As I got busier I had to find an easier and faster way to get the work done.

I purchased a truck-mounted machine and never looked back. It made my job easier and more productive.

The water that comes out of the machine can exceed 230 degrees. It also has a powerful vacuum that can recover a significant amount of water. This helps remove the soil in the carpet, upholstery or tile that is being cleaned.

When people are concerned about me having a truck-mounted machine it is usually because of property manager requirements. The carpet in rentals needs to be cleaned with water that is over 180 degrees so the carpet can be considered “sanitized”. With a portable machine the water can only get as hot as the tap water in the house. So this is why the property managers require truck-mounted equipment.

My equipment and cleaning products meet all state requirements for rental move outs.

Owner Operator

Leave a comment

I currently run my business as an owner operator. This means that if you call… I answer the phone. If you have me over for an estimate…. I come over and measure the areas to be cleaned. If you schedule a cleaning….. yes, you guessed it, I show up at your door to perform the cleaning.

Sometimes this can make for a very busy day. But I prefer to have it this way. There are many more advantages to being an owner operater than having  employees.

-My customers are happy to see ME every time and not an employee. I have a long list of repeat customers that call regularly. I am always happy to see them and enjoy the conversations I get to have with them. Sometimes the conversations take longer than the cleanings do. In fact, I am friends with many of them on Facebook.  This is my favorite part of being in business for myself. I would miss this part most if I were to do something else for a living.

-I know I can trust MY own work. I do not have to worry about employees doing substandard work. I am on every job, and I know what is going on with each cleaning. Call me a control freak, but I like to know that every job is performed to the highest standard possible. As an owner operator, I don’t get paid if the business isn’t coming in. If my customers are not happy, they will not call back or tell their friends to call me. Sometimes employees do not see this side of the coin and customer service can be lacking.

-Employees. It is hard to find someone that can be trusted with your business. There is also more insurance costs that have to considered when hiring someone. I would have to charge higher prices to cover these costs. I would lose that hometown “mom an pop” business feel that many people enjoy and look for when calling someone. This is a headache that I will avoid as long as I can. If I ever need help, I usually take one of my sons with me. They have seen that hard work I have put into building this business and they are willing to work hard to help it grow. My customers enjoy meeting my sons too.

As long as I can, I will remain an owner operator. I know that things can change this, But as long as I am healthy enough to do it, I will.

I look forward to hearing from you!
