Leaving the job before yours I call you and let you know what time my Garmin is estimating me there at. (the first job of the day doesn’t get called unless I’m running early or late) Arriving at your house the first thing I do is park at an angle across your driveway then I hook up to your water spigot then I grab the wand and greet you and go over what is or isn’t being cleaned while finding the furthest point being cleaned and leave the wand there. At this point I’m focused on pointing out anything that still needs to be done. I’m making sure everyone who is there has shoes on and that all ceiling and free standing fans are off and all pets are secured. Now it’s time to put down a mist of citrus based solvent on all areas being cleaned. While putting down the pre spray I’m also looking for clues to what your carpet is made out of. Now it’s time to run the vacuum and pressure line to the wand and make sure that the valve is shut. Now it’s time to check the water pressure coming from your spigot and based on that choose an operating water pressure that I think the supply can maintain. Now it’s time put in the earplugs and start the machine. Then I set the pressure and the temperature the open the recirculation valve and the burner and pre heat the water in the machine to about 200° (while it’s heating up there is a checklist I go thru) once at 200° its time to close the recirculation valve and open the emergency steam valve. Now it’s time to preheat the pressure line to the full operating temperature by holding the vacuum line in one hand and the pressure line in the other and releasing the pressure directly into the vacuum. It takes a while to get the machine and the heavy steel braided pressure line up to full temperature. I know when it reaches full temperature by the sound, as it gets hotter it gets louder. This is the most dangerous part of my job. Now it’s time to connect the pressure line and the vacuum line to the wand and make sure the quick connect is locked. Now it’s time to start cleaning. (while it takes most machines a couple of rooms of carpet to get up to full temperature, I start out at full temperature) The cleaning usually goes pretty fast. While cleaning I don’t pay any attention to stains unless they don’t come out. If they don’t I re-apply the pre spray and try it again and that usually works if not there are two more options I occasionally use. I will not give up on a stain that is showing progress. If it doesn’t respond, I try and remember to point it out when I’m done. Once the job is done it’s time to cool down the machine to about 200° then it’s time to spray wd 40 into the vacuum pump and shut it down and roll up all the hoses.
