Vacuum Tricks

It sounds silly but I used to vacuum about every three days now I just take out mats and pat them out and pretty much does what I need for about two weeks, now I want to go a step further and find out the cheapest vacuum that works well so I am not price gouged even further in these low wages lol Not gettin my dollar! anyone got some vacuum tricks? Had a duster for a lil while but didn’t cut the mustard.

Take the mats out and whack ‘em up against the trees in the yard. Did you ever see your mom take the rugs out of the house and beat them clean?

I also have a monthly car wash pass and they have good vacuums.

BTW, saw a guy at ABIA washing his car with the squeegee at the cell phone lot yesterday. Was handing off a young lady we know to her parents on the way back from Houston.

This thought comes from a pax convo, but takes a while other mindset to adapt to lol, really comes down to efficiency, I am not one to post pax convos but thus dude nailed it when it came to being efficient, so I am a fan. Drove the real life Tom Hanks from castaway in terms of the job (but said was actually 5 people at each site to fix) in how they manage a slower process at fed ex. Trip.

heres My trick:

Start the day with no mats.
Clean mats in the truck.

Half way through your day put the mats down.

Bam!

You’re welcome!
What? No way! Then you have to clean twice as much footage

1.Clean mats every two weeks
2. Drive at night, no one notices

Thanks for Matt trick, gonna try that, well I actually might buy another set, but looking at rubber ones, seen other drivers wash them with hose, why couldn’t you just turn Matt’s upside down?

I have a mini vacuum in glovebox, paid for itself, many times over.

My car wash trick, when it rains, I wash car, saves rinsing car, before and after, if not raining I’m at gas station with squeegee making a mess on their forecourt, but most the time I don’t bother, I regularly clean the windows, riders think car is clean,

Inside the car, before rider gets in, a quick tiny spray of scented stuff, riders hop in and go wow your car smells nice and clean,yet it’s not,

Gotta cut corners

I just thought of another trick.

I’ve used a lint roller before on the mats when no vacuums or trees are are to be found.

I’m also going to check out rubber mats today, but with the van I’m not sure what kind of cost I’m going to be looking at.

My pax story was about being as efficient with everything possible to maximize profit. In our case time doesn’t get us profits (waiting on pings) but doing everything possible to save costs does, I know I wasted a lot of money doing things out of habit and convenience, and always exploring ways to make money as efficiently as possible even in this crap gig lol
