cheap tips for steam cleaners

I thought I would add some cheap tips.

For a hose corner guard use a small orange cone cut in 1/2

For a hose stay for stairs I use a nylon rope with a noose loop. When I get to stairs I loop rope around hose thru noose loop and 1/2 knot it to stair banister the weight of hose tightens the grab on hose so it doesnt walk away .

To repair equiptment test without hoses I have had a quck disconnect and a hose elbow both fail and I thought it was the pump both times.

I trim plastic from a roll to make squares since its folded in a roll you can cut a strip fast and then stack to cut in squares I keep in a ziplock sandwich bag for ease of use. I keep the roll handy and cut special sizes on site for some odd sized feet.

Carry a tool belt with a degreaser hand spayer on the hammer loop (keep nozle screwed on tight). I use the pocket for plastic tabs carpet knife and sometimes a cosmetic tip bottle with solvent in it.

if you have any tips add them in.

I added a cell phone carrier to my wand so I can put my spotting bar, stair hook, scissors and towel directly on the wand.

Steam cleaning is something you get done only occasionally, and it can be hard work, and a more diligent effort can definitely lead to cleaner, brighter and fresher floors, rugs and carpeted staircases.
