How to Clean Baseboards the Easy Way!

Here is the unique tool that puts money in your pocket. The Scrub Jay is easy to use, saves a lot of time and back pain. It is the biggest money saving accessory we have made for the last 15 years. The amount of baseboard that one person can clean by hand in 60 minutes, can be cleaned in 5 minutes by Rabbit-3. Comparing the primitive hand cleaning to the Rabbit-3 cleaning is like the wheelbarrow to a Mack truck. Both will do the job but at what cost?

There you have it in a nutshell. It looks like magic but it’s only good common sense.

The new one-of-a-kind Scrub Jay can clean half-round “cove” baseboard as easy as the regular square baseboards which can be vinyl, ceramic, terrazzo or natural stone. While stripping floors, the more pressure applied to the floor the faster the job will get done. So, to save money and work less all you need to do is add Smart Weights to your machine. Flood the floor with stripping solution and you can finish the job 20% less time by using one Smart Weight or 50% less time by using two Smart Weights.

How to Remove Ice Melt Residue from Carpets & Floors

Due to this years harsh winter, a major amount of ice melt has been tracked into homes and commercial buildings.

For years it was simple. Put rock salt on snow and ice for safety. Then chemical companies came out with products that claimed to work well with different ingredients. Many of these ingredients are of an oily nature, manufactured through a chemical process.

Don't Put This On Your French Fries

We as carpet cleaners are expected to remove these ugly salt stains and have always used acid rinses such as Acetic Acid. It is just not that effective anymore due to the new Ice Melt products.

Ice Melt Removal Procedure for Carpets:

  1. Vacuum (HEPA) or Pile Lift
  2. Spray KK Salt Reducer onto carpet and give it some time to dwell.
  3. Hot steam clean with a carpet cleaning extraction machine.
  4. Pad clean with rotary machine (preferably cotton pad)
  5. If need be, pad again and or vacuum the next day.

Ice Melt Removal Procedure for Carpets

This method can be a lot of work but the other options give poor results. Good Luck!

Kleen Kuip has formulated a new product that works on carpets and hard surfaces and is far superior than traditional salt remover products.

Formula KK
Salt Reducer

For “Ice Melt” Film on Carpets & Floors

School Custodians to learn how to eliminate altogether the use of wax-and-strip on terrazzo floors

Dates:
Friday February 28th 2014

The course will be held in our factory at 103 Denison St. Markham, ON, Canada  (This is our 10th teaching year)
Training will start at 8:30 am sharp and finish around 5:00 pm
Free lunch will be provided

During this powerful training seminar we’ll teach you very practical skills:
This is the training seminar that you always dreamed about.

  • Learn how to identify the marble, granite, travertine, limestone and terrazzo (during the morning theory session)
  • Learn how to restore worn, scratched dull floors (during the afternoon hands-on training)
  • Learn how to maintain these floors with hard diamonds & with the new Astro Pads Technology
  • Learn how to enhance stone’s colour and seal the surface
  • Learn how to restore marble counter top and vanity top
  • Learn what type of diamonds to use and in what sequence to achieve your goal
  • Learn how to save money to maintain terrazzo floors using the new technology – the Astro pads
  • Learn how to clean square and how to clean and hone curved terrazzo floor baseboards with the Scrub Jay (This will be a great learning experience for school and hospital custodians)

This isn’t a course on which we show you a few tricks and give you some advice.
On this training course you’ll get an excellent introduction as to how to upgrade, rejuvenate marble, travertine or terrazzo floor.
Learning to refinish marble and terrazzo is a trade. This knowledge isn’t just something you can pick up from YouTube.  During this course we will give you so much good information that you have to digest it for months to come.
You’ll be thrilled to see how you’ll make the marble, which right now looks like as if used by a road grinder, become nice and shiny.
On this training, you’ll do the job and get dirty.
I dare you to find a course on which you’ll get a better training. The one thing we are NOT going to do is to herd you into a large class and leave you there to find your way around.
You will be in small group with a leader who will show you how go through the grinding and polishing steps.
We will take your hand and step you through all the difficult processes.
We accommodate the maximum of 10 people. They will be split in to 3 smaller groups. We do it not because we are superstitious, which by the way we are, but we want you to have the most attention from us.
We’ll also provide all the material including the machines, impregnator and the diamonds, some which are large enough to put it on your sweetheart’s finger.
We put a lot of money and effort in to this seminar to make sure that you take home an exquisitely useful knowledge and experience.

You’ll take home a comprehensive manual for future use and a Certificate as a “Marble, Terrazzo Restorer”

You’ll have the opportunity of working with the machines, the diamonds and ASTRO pads – a true hands-on experience that will give you a feel for operating them and observing their productivity.
Bring your camera with you.
We start with 3 hours academic study then continue with hands-on training. Be prepared to “get dirty”
Maximum number of participant is 10 people
The cost of the seminar is $500 per person. (plus taxes).
Note:
To secure your seat send us $100.00 deposit. You may cancel and have your money refund or deferred, if you do it no less than 10 business days before seminar date. We accept cheques or credit cards.

Dirty Mop & Bucket – Double Bucket Mop System

Here we are in North America the land of knowledge and generally the most educated on earth. We put men on the moon and invent unbelievable gadgets. But the way we mostly clean a floor is in the most infectious manor. We use an infectious looking mop with a dirty pail & dirty water that very seldom gets changed and we buy the least expensive soap and keep dipping the mop into dirtier rinse water time after time.

The Europeans invented (although not 100% perfect) but much superior and healthier approach to washing floors, walls, stalls etc,.
