Too old to be new!
In 1965 I decided to design a machine that could clean a carpet.
Having built the first one, I advertised to find some guinea pigs in order to assess the machine - and that was how I was dragged, at first kicking and screaming, into the industry that has since dominated my life.
That was the last time that I advertised - do not even have sign-written vans.
For the past 40+ years all customers have either been repeats or referals and most are also friends.
What a great business to be in!
