More and more folks are using Facebook and other social media for discussions about carpet cleaning.  So, due to the shift to social media, the lack of activity here, and the cost to maintain this site, it will be closing very soon.  

Many thanks for all of your past participation and I wish all of you the very best.

P.S.  As to a social media site for carpet cleaning, my recommendation is PADLIFE.
I'm very sorry to hear that but it's not unexpected.  I know things change but this is a very important knowledge base we are losing when this site goes.  When I decided to start use encapsulation in my cleaning this was one of the sites that really helped answer my question, even with me having nearly 20 years of experience at that time.   Facebook is not the same thing as sites like this.

I'll miss this place.

I was a member of Padlife but I deleted myself due to some things that were going on between a few people. Me being one of them. So no place for me there.  And Mikey's Board is overwhelmingly anti-encapsulation.
Sad to hear. I joined the board towards the end but as a new carpet cleaner I went through almost every old thread and have learned a ton from this board. It's still a great resource even though it's not active.

Barry, the member you and others had an issue with was banned quite sometime back (in fact, he's in the can now). While it isn't a perfect group, it's certainly better than most and a good source for sharing information related to VLM. I encourage you to return.
My personal hope is that nostickyresidue will continue as a 'read only' archive and not be deleted. This has been a great resource for VLM'ers over the years.
I tried finding padlife on facebook, couldn't find it I typed in a few phrases.with that name.
Is there a link?
Sad this is going...a read only site would be nice.

Thanks
