Prompted buy a forum discussion about finding the odd flea:

I often come across creepy-crawlies in this job:

Houseflies get sucked up the vacuum cleaner nozzle (easy removal, even 'in-flight' :-) ). 

But I have to say, spiders get tossed out the window (alive)...
Spiders are Okay.

Here's an interesting photo which shows the scale of the modern fabric manufacturing industry in China - WOW!  And where are all the people?

Carpet cleaning involves a lot of kneeling down on wet flooring. Does anyone have any advice on preventing 'wet knees'?  Waterproof knee inserts might be the answer - any ideas anyone?

A nice easy Commercial Carpet Cleaning appointment in Macclesfield today - I took the opportunity to take a few photos of my processes so I can show you how it's done.

Win some, loose some (maybe):

Today I took a large red wine stain out of a beige wool carpet. It took a while, but it's gone.

Yesterday I tried to take a large blood stain out of a cream cotton armchair.  Two hours later I had made little progress.  Later, I discussed this with some very experienced professionals (40 years in the trade). I'm going back on Thursday armed with some (new to me) advanced techniques. Hopefully I'll improve on my earlier attempt.

I don't like being beaten :-)
