Thank you Rick
Back in 2004 I traveled from Cairns to Las Vegas to the Riviera Casino specifically to meet Rick Gelinas and try out his Cimex.

I was so impressed with it back then that I bought one when I returned home after that trip.

One thing that I have always remembered when Rick first introduced me to Big Yella were his immortal words:


Following are some pics taken from levels 11 & 13, from my very first large commercial contract, possibly the worlds largest accountancy business.

A contract that I have maintained every six months to this date.

I originally got this contract via a carpet retailer that was called in to quote on replacing the entire carpet on level 11.

He recommended they contact me purely because I had been into his showroom and did a demo clean for him with my 'Mex;

That carpet still has not been replaced.

I'll be back down there again tomorrow to finish the job off.

I reckon Rick & Nancy will recognize a few of these places. Wink

I have many times been asked on how do I complete these large jobs on my own, and am reminded of the quote by the Chinese philosopher, Lao-tzu, when he said, "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step".

I equate this to carpet cleaning with, "I start at one end and continue until I reach the far end".

I don't go all out as fast as I can, but set a steady pace which I can continue with for up to 14 hours if need be.

Simple really.

I don't regret my past, I just regret the time I've wasted with the wrong people.
Take me as I am, or watch me as I go.
I'll retire when I can no longer do what I love, or no longer love what I do.
Stop moving, start dying........
Thank you for those kind thoughts Shorty. I am happy that the Cimex has opened doors of opportunity for you! Smile But let's be clear on one thing - you have a great entrepreneurial spirit and no shortage of drive and enthusiasm; so it's no wonder that you've been successful.

The Cimex/Releasit system is a formidable tool for commercial work. You had the sense to see that for what it is. And you have obviously put it to work and have experienced the benefits. I am happy about that!!!

It has been a great joy for me to have been involved with bringing this method of cleaning to light in our industry. Helping people become more profitable and more capable of attaining their business goals brings me deep satisfaction. I think of it as a win-win on so many levels. The carpet cleaner makes more money in less time. The building owner gets to enjoy cleaner carpets with less frustrations. And since there's room to price more competitively, the building owner can afford more frequent servicing of their carpets - and that benefits them as well as the carpet cleaner. At the end of the day, earning more money in less time with low overhead makes good business sense. It's been fun being a part of all this.

Thank you for your kind post Shorty!!! Keep up the good work my friend.
I was asked a similar question years ago when I got my first big contract it was about 200,000 sq ft A buddy asked me how I was ever going to handle a job this big--my reply was 1 sq ft at a time.
