took a drive across to Newbury on friday 5/2 to get some stains out of the carpets in a couple of rooms, the client said she as tried everything but cant “get them out”..it always worries me when my customers tell me they have had a good “ol” scrubb because of the damage that can be caused! anyway the first thing we did was to do a tester..which basically means we spot a small area and if the “stain” starts to lift we know we are in business! which we was, we set about cleaning the said area
and after a few minutes it was then my client said the immortal words….”oh my god” look at that, that is the most amazing thing i have ever seen! So it looks like we will be performing more miracles in newbury in the near future. Because it was such a nice day decided i wasn’t in a mad rush to get home so had a nice gentle drive to make sure the DRY&CLEAN MACHINE got really noticed..
This is about those customers who don’t pay! I’m sure I’m not the only one who is experiencing this problem! I wouldn’t mind if the job was shoddy or just bad workmanship but i have a testimonial from my customer! There is the usual route to go i.e send in the debt collectors but my own views on this are well known! Letter writing, this is where you send the first letter saying how you are sure your customer as “forgotten to post the cheque” only to find that after 7 days they have still forgotten, so you send the second letter which is a bit more stern, Something like, We notice you still have NOT paid “you got 3 days” A week later, NOTHING! Now its time for THE letter” which simply says, pay now or this go’s to our solicitors!! There’s something about that letter that makes me feel bad and keep putting off sending it, Don’t know what it is cant quit put my finger on it, I have come to the conclusion that from now on everyone i do work for must pay when the job is complete!
What a week!! Been to 1 job twice, found a situation that we couldn’t do. More restoration than cleaning! Then done our first office job, waited for feed back which I got on friday, and was fantastic!! Starting to pick up decent work now, and getting a few enquiries from twitter belive it or not! Trying to get some info on a add on business which I think will be good for dry and clean..the day in the life article will be out this month, should be good fun!
A day in the life article was published, had a good responce, priced and got a job priced another but waiting for the go ahead.. to be honest dont have much hope for this one! champainge dreams lemonade mony im affraid..had ellis over the weekend..nicked all the bedsheets! blesss him hes got colic which is really stressing him out… Off to working for car interior cleanin! Some leather and fabric should be good fun!…
Had a fantastic week, priced up to do part of an office building if all go’s well maybe can talk about a contract! also looked a cleaning 12 persien rugs, which is a specialised job and our system is recognised to carry out this type of work. would love to do it! please take a look at the air pollution link.. i will be posting more of these as i get them..
We did a demo a few weeks ago for a dry cleaners who where interested in advertising our unique system in a couple of their premises.. the result is that they was so impressed with what they witnessed they have asked that we put some display boards in the shops so we can be recommended to the clients getting dry cleaning…this could be a good outlet for us..priced a nice sisal carpet job today…lady was really nice, booked it in for next week. under pressure from shelley to get my day in the life article finished for next month! will finish it by the weekend i told her….oops
Took a drive over to newphoria this morn and had a brilliant 1-2-1(BNI talk 4 meeting)with samantha N-F…i like newphoria and i love sam!! grabed a quick cuppa T then headed of the see graham @ lindon-travers for my second 1-2-1..i like graham because 1 hes a chelsea supporter and 2 hes just a really nice bloke and any1 looking for mortgage advice let me know and i will introduce you to him. jumped in the DRY&CLEAN MACHINE then headed of home to catch up on some phone calls and emails…that done! off to strawberry hill to price up a job..fingers crossed would like to do this 1! done a little demo to show just how fantastic our systems are, The client had used a well known brand of carpet cleaner on some stains that the children had made…she said; the stains went and i was really pleased but they have returned and i cant make out why..I explained its called “wick back” and although you think you got rid of the stains all you managed to do was push the dirt deeper into the carpet..i then went on to explain that with our dry extraction system there is no wick back…
what a great couple of days…yesterday 2/3 went to see sophie 3rd time i’ve done work for her..fantastic girl, then got home by 4 30 just in time to change then get to twickenham rugby ground for the richmond expo..saw loads of old faces, and new 1s done some networking, which by the way i love to do. must admit i do get a bit puzzled by some of the people..they just dont seem to want to know!! ‘o well’..got home by 9 with loads of information and some good contacts…
Today 3/2 been to an ex BNI members house to do a complete carpet clean plus 2 antique chairs and 3 rugs..our system still makes me shiver! the results are incredible , you really have got to see it to believe!!!
what a day!! been up to knightsbridge to do a whole flat just behind a certain corner shop(u try getin a pint of milk in there!)job went fantastically well, the customer was amazed at what we did for her! anyway after we finished decided to have a little drive round just so we could get the DRY&CLEAN MACHINE seen..Dont forget to check out our facebook page dry and clean
