I have been very grateful to HOST and our community of professional cleaners. I too would like to see more of us share ideas. I will do my best to be a regular contributor to this forum.
As for business -- we are in the winter months here in the North Central portion of the US. Business has slowed since the snow has been flying. What I speculate is that many people do not want to clean their carpets in the middle of winter only to have them resoiled with the dirty thaw of spring.
On the positive side, I can promote the moisture control cleaning method we provide is not susceptible to frozen equipment during frigid temperatures (unlike some stories I have heard about the 'big rig' wet method cleaners). We don't leave our customers to deal with steamed up windows in a closed up home as well.
