Hello and welcome! Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Mark Stanley and I have been cleaning carpet and upholstery for well over nine years now (still just a Rookie, I guess!). 🙂
My business is based in Douglasville, Georgia (suburb of Atlanta). For several years, one of the really neat ways I have been keeping in-touch with others in this industry is via all the great Message Boards available on the Internet for carpet cleaners.
This platform has allowed me to share fellowship with, and experience a common bond with my fellow cleaners from coast to coast as well as in other countries. For a long time now, I have felt a strong compulsion to build an online magazine or “e-zine” for carpet cleaners who use VLM (very low moisture) systems as a regular part of their businesses. I wanted to build an e-zine that would be a kind of “living library” of all our experiences. It would hold large amounts of our “collective knowledge” which we could all then draw from and use to grow as professionals.
Professionals who love this industry and are proud to share what we know to be true.
I am greatly indebted to all those who have shared (and will share) their knowledge in the form of e-mails, feature stories, editorials, pictures, videos, and more, thereby making this e-zine possible. Thank you all! I look forward to publishing many future issues of the VLM Central online magazine and making it ever more comprehensive.
So, it is with great pride that I present to you this e-zine! Please take a moment and sign the guest book so I can keep you updated by e-mail when future issues are ready.
