That complete carpet, tulsa.com uh, wanted to talk to you today about the importance of having good equipment. Uh, you want to be able to be efficient in what you’re doing, but you also want to be able to, um, get it done right the first time. Uh, one of our mottos here is that, uh, the shortcut is the longest way of getting things done. Carpet cleaning, Tulsa’s in our fiber. And one of the reasons I think that it’s important now, you can’t overspend. You could go out there and buy something that’s ludicrously expensive and it gives you way more performance than you would need. But you also can easily understand, which is what I see a lot of people run into, especially in the carpet cleaning industry, is that they’ll get a certain amount of, um, uh, capital.

Speaker 1: (00:59)
They get a certain amount of money that they can do to buy their first piece of equipment. And that’s kind of your starter, your entryway. It’s sort of like if I had to want to do mow a yard, I could start off with a weed eater, which would be fairly cheap. Um, or I could get a small pool start mower that’s got a small deck and it could mow the yard, but you kind of need both of them that we are kind of edges out the edges, whereas your mower is only going to get up and around two things, but it can only get so close to it. So you kind of need that combination between the two. But you can get up to a, say a a self propelled push mower and then all of a sudden you’ve moved kind of in the next category.

Speaker 1: (01:33)
You can get more stuff done quicker. So now you start bumping into it. I, um, what I love to, uh, emphasize to our guys is that you can do a both like good job and a quicker job in a quicker job if done right. Actually we’ll make you do a better job because now you’ve got more time and energy. For example, if I had to mow a a one, a one acre yard and it took me four hours to mow that one acre of yard with a straight push mower, but I could do the same four acre yard, one acre yard in two hours. If I used a self propelled Mower, I would then have more energy because I’ve spent less physical time to wear myself out to be able to um, focus in on doing the mowing as opposed to just trying to get the mowing done.

Speaker 1: (02:26)
Uh, if I got on a zero turn and I went across and I did the whole one acre in an hour, I now have, should have two to three times more energy to focus in on that one thing because it doesn’t take me so long. I’m not in a marathon long run, trying to continuously just keep doing mowing. I’m more on a focused sprint in saying, okay, I can, I’ve got time now to do a little extra stuff. I don’t have to push myself because it’s going to take me so long to get something done and now kind of have a little extra time to say, Hey, this is uh, something I can do both quick, efficiently and be more focused on it. Carpet cleaning Tulsa since 1988. This is one of the things that we’ve always focused on in our own business that we want to make sure that we’ve got all over the tools necessary to be both efficient so we can get things done in a timely manner, but also so we can do things.

Speaker 1: (03:18)
Um, well having a better carpet cleaning machine that does a deeper carpet cleaning, uh, smoother wand, a lighter one to take the fatigue off of the person doing the carpet cleaning so that you can do more carpet cleaning a day and stay focused on the work and not hit the point of exhaustion or tiredness or just saying, okay, I’ve just got to keep going because we’ve all worked on a project before you did the wrong thing. I love it. Carpet cleaning Tulsa Uh, uh, Stephen Covey talks, it talks about a called sharpening the fall and it gives a story of a guy who is out there and he’s signed on some trees cutting up some limber, a timber and the uh, can you come over to him? You see him and he’s like, Oh man, you look really tired. Okay, yes I have. I’ve been cutting down this tree all day long.

Speaker 1: (04:03)
And I’m like, wow, that looks like hard work. It’s like, oh, it is. Carpet cleaning Tulsa I’m just totally worn out and tired and sweaty. He says, well, have you thought about sharpening? Your saw is like, well, I don’t have time to stop and sharpen the saw. I’m cutting down a tree. Can’t you see that? And I think sometimes we get into that part where where you are trying to just get something done, but the way that we’re doing it is taking a lot longer and a lot more energy and causing more errors as I think it’s important to find the right balance in every endeavor. Typically it’s not the cheapest thing for that thing won’t work as efficiently and it will cost you a lot more money in the long run because it takes you twice as long or three times as long to get something accomplished or done.

Speaker 1: (04:40)
The most expensive thing typically is overly inflated in price. Carpet cleaning Tulsa since 1998 I’ve seen many people who’ve got a brand new carpet cleaning rig, spent over a hundred thousand dollars on it and then go out and the first month have five customers. If you only got five customers to serve in the whole month, that I wouldn’t go spend $100,000 on equipment that you’re not going to be able to pay back. That’s, it’s not going to be able to pay for itself. So one of the things that I think is important is to make sure that you balance what it is. If you’ve only got four things to do with an item that you get something cheap and you just put in the extra work and the elbow grease. If you’re going to do a hundred, you know, on average, one of our trucks can do 30 houses in a week.

Speaker 1: (05:21)
Um, then you want to be able to, you’re going to mail to do really good right off the bat. But I’ll see. You want to have efficiency so that you are focused, you’re fresh, you’re ready to do and you’re not worn out on house number 30 as you feel just as good as you did on house number one, two, three, and five. So a Carpet cleaning Tulsa since 1998, one of the things that we focus on, uh, the I believe is important is to make sure that you find that right balance to what it is that you’re trying to accomplish. And as you work your way up, you start to increase what it is you can do, your capacity, the form, and the function of what it is you’re wanting to accomplish in that area so that you could do the best job in the best time. Because a lot of times, a lot of people don’t really want to spend all day long with you. They’re cleaning the carpet. You want Chu to get in and out, but they also want to be able to see that you made a difference. Carpet cleaning Tulsa since 1998 we are complete carpet. Give us a call today at (918) 494-7093.
