MISTAKES

No one likes to make a mistake. As owners of a Carpet Cleaning Company, we want to avoid them.

But who can tell for sure whether a new idea will work until it has actually been implemented?

If the possible gain far outweighs the potential loss, it’s a mistake not to try it.

Successful owners don’t have enough fingers to count all the mistakes they have made.

That is one of the reasons they have attained success. They possess the initiative and courage to take action where others hesitate. When they do make a mistake, they try to learn something from it that will sharpen their judgment the next time.

Good owners are cautious but not too cautious. If they show an overwhelming fear of mistakes, the initiative of their workers will be stifled. People get overly cautious if every little hiccup tends to irritate their boss.

If someone does make a mistake, it is important to remain calm. Take your time to assess the situation and decide what corrective action should be taken. You want to place emphasis, not on the mistake, but on seeing that the mistake is not repeated.

It’s great to strive for failure-proof work but not at the expense of progress. Have the courage to embrace new ideas and don’t discourage your employee’s initiative by being overly critical when a mistake is made.

Occasional mistakes are the price of improvement and higher productivity.

Ice Melt Residue on Carpet - Why Is It Such a Problem and How to Remove:



Ice Melt Residue on Carpet - Why Is It Such a Problem and How to Remove:

Removing Calcium Chloride Ice Melt from Carpets



Tracking ice melt into your home or business can severe damage to your carpet and hard floors - tracking in dirt, destroying carpet fibers and increasing wear as well as making hard floors oily and slippery.

The Problem of Ice Melt on Floors - Carpets, Rugs, Entry Mats, Car Mats and Hard Floors:

Ice melt is tracked onto carpet during the winter months from shoes and boots. The heaviest buildup is usually in the entry areas of a house or building and appears white and crusty. This residue is not easily removed with normal cleaning detergents. In fact, alkaline detergents make the problem worse.
On waxed VCT floors, rock salt (sodium chloride) leaves a white powdery residue that can dull and eat away the floor finish or wax and potentially damage the floor as well. Worse yet, the oily residue from calcium chloride ice melt can be slippery on smooth floors creating a slip hazard, fall injuries and potential lawsuits.
On wood floors, ice melt leaves behind an slippery, oily residue that can damage urethane or wax finishes used on wood floors and may eventually draw out natural moisture, causing splintering.
On rugs, ice melt can lead to dry rot issues.
On carpets, calcium chloride and magnesium chloride ice melt attracts dirt on carpets and is hard to remove by normal cleaning.
Calcium chloride ice melt is hygroscopic (draws moisture) and turns to calcium hydroxide (lime) when you try to clean with an alkaline detergent. The white powder from calcium chloride ice melt will very quickly track throughout a building and, since it is hygroscopic, causes severe soiling. Quick removal is important!

What is Ice Melt? What Is In Ice Melt and What Are Its Properties?

Ice Melts include sodium chloride, calcium chloride, magnesium chloride and urea and work by lowering the melting point of snow and ice.
Calcium chloride is used in place of sodium chloride (salt) when the temperatures are extremely low when salt no longer performs to melt ice. Calcium chloride is an exothermic deicer, which releases heat to melt the ice, works the quickest and is effective at a broader range of temperatures. For example, solid calcium chloride releases heat and is effective down to 25 degrees below zero Fahrenheit. The predominant chemical in a blended product will determine its performance.
Sodium chloride ice melt, often called rock salt, is an endothermic deicer, absorbs the sun’s heat and uses it to break ice down to liquid brine, works more slowly and is effective at a smaller range of temperatures. Sodium chloride is effective down to 25 degrees below zero Fahrenheit.

Follow these Steps to Remove Ice Melt Residue from Carpet and Keep Ice Melt From Harming Floors and Carpet:

  • Remove all mats.
  • On carpets and rugs:
    • If dry, thoroughly vacuum first.
    • Apply Brown Out® ice melt residue remover at normal concentration. Brown Out is on the acid side, dissolves calcium chloride without turning it to lime.
    • Extract the carpet or rug with Brown Out.
    • For large carpeted areas, extract with at least 4-8 ounces per gallon solution of Brown Out in water (with no detergent) through the base unit or a portable extractor.
    • At this point, you can do normal extraction cleaning.
  • On hard floors:
    • Thoroughly sweep and vacuum the area.
    • Mop the same areas with a microfiber flat mop to remove any remaining dry ice melt crystals.
    • Damp mop with a Brown Out at normal concentration.
    • Rinse the floor with clean water if needed.
    • Repeat the process if ice melt remains.
  • WARNING: DO not use Brown Out, or any other acid, on marble or limestone or on polished concrete floors!

How to Prevent Ice Melt Problems in a Business Building:

  • In a commercial building, use at least 15 feet of walk off matting that includes a combination of wipe and scraper matting.
  • Use Brown Out daily to help prevention of ice melter deposits on hard floors.
  • In entry areas where ice melter tracking is likely to occur, mop floors regularly Brown Out as above.
  • Keep areas outside just before entering a building as clean and ice free as possible.

How to Prevent Ice Melt Problems in a House:

  • Minimize the amount of ice melt tracked into the house by using doormats and rugs on the inside and outside of all of the home’s entrances.
  • Clean the doormats as often as possible with a mop or vacuum throughout the day.

Consumer Steps to Remove Ice Melt Residue from Carpet and Keep Ice Melt From Harming Floors and Carpet:

Use a clean and absorbent cloth or rag soaked in white vinegar, an acid, to dab the salt stain and allow it to soak for 15 minutes. Blot the carpet with another rag and clean water. DO NOT USE ON MARBLE or LIMESTONE!

COMPLAINERS

An employee has been with a successful Carpet Cleaning Company for many years. During all this time, he had constantly complained and griped about the company, his boss, his fellow workers and his life in general. Suddenly, one day, he had a complete change of personality.

As a boss, are you a constant complainer or do you have employees like the person previously described? The easiest thing to find in this world is something to complain about. The more success a company has, the easier it is to complain about it.

Back to our complainer; what brought about this remarkable and unexplained change? He said that he had always wanted to work for a perfect company and have a perfect life. Therefore, he complained about things that were wrong with the company and his life. Then he realized that the company or his life would never be perfect. So he just decided to go along with the way things were in the company and his life.

Complaining is an old American custom. Most of the time it is harmless; it is a simple act of eliminating frustrations. It can, however, become a habit. It can become a chronically dismal way of looking at one’s life, company, bosses and fellow employees.

How much better our attitude would be if we look for things that are right. We can do this without being blind to the faults of our Company and our lives. It’s all a matter of what we choose to look for and focus upon.

The choice is given to each of us. Are we complainers or do we choose a path and course which will determine our success?

This path is the most basic and important choice we will ever make.

LOYALTY

Is loyalty non existent in today’s worker? Is all they care about is their paycheck? While to some that is probably true because of their relationship with their boss. This lack of perceived loyalty reflects the frustration employees have with their boss and vice versa.

As owners of a Carpet Cleaning Company, we must develop direct person-to-person relationships with our employees which will lead to loyalty. Today’s workers want to feel that you have their interests at heart - not just your own.

The key to loyalty is showing that you deserve it. So how do you do that?

  • You give loyalty.
  • You are sincere and genuinely interested in the present and future of your employees.
  • You appreciate their viewpoints, problems, desires and ambitions.
  • You deal with them openly, honestly and fairly.
  • You delegate responsibility and develop them.
  • You give and share credit liberally.

It takes this and possibly more to earn loyalty.

But it can be earned and it is well worth the effort.

Happy New Year

January 1st obviously ushers in a New Year. It’s a time that many reflect upon their previous accomplishments and failures. Then we look forward vowing to correct or not to repeat our failures. We also plot and plan for the time to come. Each of us has goals and aspirations. We should always strive to achieve them. If you are not moving forward, then it is inevitable that you will become stagnate or worse yet begin to move backwards.

So, after all that reflection, we usually come up with New Year Resolutions. They come in a variety of purposes, personal, family, business and community among them.

  • Improve physical well being.
  • Improve mental health.
  • Improve finances.
  • Improve career.
  • Improve knowledge.
  • Volunteer.
  • Spend quality time with family and friends.
  • Be more spiritual.

The following passage was written by Bishop John H. Vincent in 1909. It is appropriate not only on New Years Day but every day of our lives:

I will this day try to live a simple, sincere and serene life. I will repel promptly every thought of discontent, anxiety, discouragement, impurity and self-seeking. I will cultivate cheerfulness, magnanimity, charity and the habit of silence. I will exercise economy in expenditure, carefulness in conversation, diligence in appointed service, fidelity to every trust and a child-like trust in God.”

Happy Holidays

The holidays have been in full swing since early December. Many dates are celebrated or commemorated during this month. Naming a few, but certainly not all:

  • Kwanzaa: A celebration of Family, Community and Culture
  • Hanukkah: The celebration of the Jewish Festival of Lights
  • Milad Un Nabi: The Muslim culture commemorates the birth of the Prophet Muhammad
  • Christmas Day: The Christian culture commemorates the birth of Jesus Christ

However, even if you don’t practice or believe, they all have many points in common. The one we will focus on is that they all promote “Peace on Earth and Goodwill to all”. Once again, no matter what you practice or don’t, if you have not already done so, take a few moments to reflect on that common factor.

NEW IDEAS

New IdeasWho knows for sure if new ideas will work until you’ve tried them?

As owners, we have developed methods and procedures that have worked for us. Naturally, when we hire a new employee for our Carpet Cleaning Company we work to instill these methods and procedures in them. Obviously, they have worked well for us and hopefully helped us to achieve goals of success and profitability.

But sometimes we put “blinders” on when trying to achieve our goals. These “blinders” may prevent us from being open to new ideas. You can teach people the best way you know how; but keep an open mind if they occasionally offer a new idea for doing something. It’s possibly a way to improve your services and certainly a way of keeping imaginative and capable people happy working with you.

Sometimes it costs too much, the risk is too great and the possible gain is too small to do something differently. That’s when you have to use your judgment and rely on your experience. However, be careful not to use your judgment of something as an excuse to be negative. The more new ideas you evaluate the more good ones you will discover and you will receive. Many of the procedures we practice today are from input from our employees.

An open-minded owner stimulates people; a close minded person does just the opposite. Sometimes it pays to try people’s ideas just for the sake of encouraging them to think.

Remember Pearl Harbor

That was the battle cry of WW II. President Roosevelt (FDR) said, “Sunday, December 7, 1941, a day that will live in infamy”. Not many are alive who remember that fateful morning when the attack took place on our Pacific Fleet as it lay at anchor. Those who were there will never forget and others will never forget it or where they were when they heard the news.

As we commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack, a thought comes to mind. Will “Remember Pearl Harbor”, “Remember the Maine” and “Remember the Alamo” become forgotten or irrelevant? Not because those that were there or were aware of it are gone. But because they have been relegated to the back pages of History books that are routinely ignored by many schools? Will 9/11 and other recent terrorists events someday join them?

Unfortunately, there has been a tremendous cost in the loss of lives in these tragic events. Thank God for our brave troops and first responders who have been involved in them. In this land of plenty and freedoms, with all our problems, people still yearn to come to live here. But remember “Freedom is not free”.

CHARACTER-INTELLIGENCE-EXPERIENCE

How important are these factors in hiring good employees for our Carpet Cleaning Company? We listed them in what we feel is the order of importance.

Let’s look at them in reverse order.

Many employers look for experience. In the past we have found that experience is the least important. Our Company prides itself on the methods we promote in our service business. If a potential employee has worked for another Carpet Cleaner, then they may possess habits and techniques that run opposite of what we promote.

Intelligence is sometimes over emphasized. We do not need a rocket scientist to clean carpet. What we do need is someone with the ability to learn and comprehend and follow instructions. A bright person will quickly gain experience.

Last but not least is character. We find that this is the most important element of all. There are several reasons. But the main one is that this person is going to be at your customers’ premises. Many times there will be no one there other than them. Everyone we hire is bonded; this in itself is a background check. Also, since we carry full insurance coverage, our insurance carrier will run an employee’s drivers license through the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.

The people we need most are those with the character to promote and practice “The Bane-Clene® Way”, the intelligence to learn and therefore gain experience.

Thanksgiving Day

ThanksgivingThanksgiving is truly a special day. It was first celebrated in 1621 when the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Native Americans shared a fall harvest. In 1863, President Lincoln proclaimed a national day of thanksgiving to be celebrated each year on the fourth Thursday of November.

Thanksgiving Day is more than memories, food, football and parades. It is a day of thanks. On this day, we are reminded of the bounty of treasures that are a part of our everyday lives.

We spend a few, often too brief, moments in prayer or meditation before dinner to say thanks for our family, friends and the wonderfulness of our lives. The true meaning of Thanksgiving should not end there. Ponder the two words that are involved: thanks and giving. We should therefore be reminded to give thanks and to share. Take the time to share our economic benefits, material wealth and talents with those who can use our help.

Once again as you sit down to dinner, ponder the true meaning of Thanksgiving.

FAULTS

We all like to think of ourselves as fair, compassionate and understanding people. But the fact is that we all have faults; no one is perfect. What is important is that we recognize our faults and work to correct them. A corrected fault can be used to your advantage.

For example, your employees may be reluctant to question you for fear that you will hold a grudge. Holding a grudge is negative and will have adverse effects on your Company. If a smart owner has to criticize someone for an error the employee made, they make a point to then assuage the situation as quickly as possible. This shows that the owner is firm but reasonable. This also reassures the employee that their talents are appreciated and that they are still a valuable member of the team.

It’s an owner’s priority to get things out in the open, talk them over, then help people forget them. Once again, it benefits no one to hold grudges. They are petty and can affect work relationships. They are bad for the employee, the owner and ultimately the Company.

It is a fault easily corrected.
