The February 2016 Last Word features Teddy Moon’s challenge-winning photo, a Facebook discussion of privacy, and more.

Photo of the Month Contest

The photo (see above) contest winner this month is Teddy Moon with Rainbow International of Marysville, WA. His company will receive a chemical prize package from Solutions by Steam Pros worth $500.

Teddy describes this particular job: “This customer had a serious pet urine problem. I started out by peeling the carpet away from the tack strip and pretreating the back of the carpet and the pad. I used a truckmounted hot water extraction machine to clean the back of the carpet and the pad. I then used a pet odor enzyme to directly treat the back of the carpet and the pad. I reattach the carpet to the tack strip and used hydrogen peroxide to pretreat the top part of the carpet to remove the yellow urine stains. Finally, I steam cleaned the top portion of the carpet and treated it with a combined odor encapsulator and deodorizer.”

For an opportunity to win a chemical prize package from Solutions by Steam Pros (worth $500), send your images and a brief 100-word description on how you obtained your results to Jeff Cross, executive editor, at jcross@cleanfax.com or 193 Purple Finch Loop, Pataskala, OH 43062. Contest rules available by request.
