Going Green

I just received an article from Contracting Profits about stripping floors with no chemicals. Very interesting article and definitely alot better for the environment. In a nutshell it involves using electrolyzed water to strip the finish instead of chemicals. Dry ice blasting and using steam for cleaning are also mentioned. You can find the article here.
This is a hard sell to the seasoned dyed in the wool floorman. It's that old "we've always done it this way" type of thinking that's hard to get past. Also change is scary. People are creatures of habit and don't particularly like having that routine changed.
This type of floor cleaning definitely creates a safer, cleaner, and healthier environment all the way around. A good read and hopefully will start to catch on as BSCs begin to make the switch to green cleaning.
If you are currently utilizing this system and have comments about it feel free to post. Thanks!

Catching up!

It's been a crazy few months!We are in our peak period right now with floors,carpets,etc. and so there hasn't been much time to sit in front of the computer. This business is kind of like deep sea fishing(which I LOVE!) in that when the fishing is good - you try to rack in as much as you can hold because there will always be slow times from time to time.
Another thing on my plate is my 20th HS reunion is coming up and I caught up with a lot of old classmates online with some incriminating photos of me back in high school. It's been a real trip remembering "back when". But it's good to see everyone again and reminiscing.
Anyway, i've got a ton of stuff to share so stay tuned and Good luck and good fortune.
