  • Do You Need Credentials As An Educator To Operate A Trade School? I have spent over 25 years in the cleaning trade. Go back to 1986 and I was making all of $4.00 per hour mopping floors and hauling trash. Sadly, in today’s money, that is $8.39 per hour. My state, NY still has a minimum wage of $7.25 per hour. I know American born, high school graduates working in the trade for $8.00 per hour and even less.
    But it doesn’t have to be a dead end job. Someone has to train you. Things like floor stripping and finishing, carpet cleaning, stone polishing are a good step up from unskilled labor. I know when I made that step up in 1991, it was long overdue. I was still making something like $4.75 per hour before somebody stepped in and got me trained and promoted. By the end of 1991, I was making about $6.50 per hour, which is the same as about $11 per hour today. Today, $11 an hour puts you probably in the top 15% of the cleaning industry wages.
    But there’s a way out of that poverty. Around 2000 I became certified in Water Damage Restoration. That’s a fancy way to say ѕhіt sucker. When sewers overflow, pipes break, etc, somebody has to clean it up. You wear a lot of protective gear. The job is hot and smelly. I also started making about $18 per hour back then. As time went by, I learned Odor Control, Mold Remediation, Smoke and Fire Damage Restoration. No I own my own small business and made $100,000 for the first time in my life, something I never thought I’d do.
    Getting to that point wasn’t easy. Lots of expensive learning. Lots of jumping from job to job from 2003-2009 when I started my own business. That’ the problem, somebody get trained, certified, etc why would they work for $25 per hour? That’ what I was making in 2009. Today, I bill $75-100 per hour for some of the work I do. I pay a helper $15 per hour to work under my close supervision. If I train him, get him certified to work independently, he’s going to leave me, even if I pay him $25 per hour.
    But here’s the sweet part, I am certified in so many aspects of this trade. Don’t have training in lead, asbestos or bio-hazard (crime scene and trauma) clean up, but I paid hundreds for 2-3 day classes in what I am certified in. In the last decade, I easily spent $5,000 of my own money on training. Spent another $5,000 of employer’s money too. This training isn’t cheap.
    I know the actual trainers are cleaners like me. Many worked their way up the ladder like me. Some train, sell supplies and equipment and don’t actually work in the trade anymore. They make out even better than me.
    I’d like to create a training school for this sort of thing. I am in the NYC suburbs and you’d think there were local training programs. I think I never drove less than 2 hours to a class, in most cases 4-5 hours far away to Philly, Boston and Washington, DC. That’s just the way it is.
    I wonder if the owners and administrators of these programs come from an education background? The instructors don’t. Its not like you can get a student loan for this stuff. At best, you can earn continuing education credits. I know teaching this could make a lot of money.
    These days you can get a week’s training for $1,000 and have a $600 a week job waiting for you. Can a community college say that? Nope. Sometimes not even a 4 year school. Forget about the phony for profit “colleges” that advertise on TV, they are a scam. This can be a rewarding career, but you need to be into it and have the training. That’s where I can help. What do you think? Thanks.

      Most owners of vocational schools are just that–they are businessmen/women who have a good idea and hire the right people. The program directors, instructors, etc., are certified, qualified, degreed, etc. in their field (you’ll definitely need people qualified in environmental sciences). You have to comply with the requirements of your state board of education, and they will tell you what will be required for the training you want to offer. In your case, you have an interest and background in the field you’d like to offer training in, and that will put you in a “hands-on” position, (if you want to be actively involved), as opposed to “absentee owners” of so many of these training schools.

    What Shoes Would Be Best For Me? I work at Wal-Mart in the produce department. I’m on my feet all day with non-stop walking and standing for long periods of time. I also move pallets of freight that weigh a few thousand pounds. On top of this I also stand in a lot of spills and cleaners, such as the chlorinated cleaner and sanitizer we spray on the floor. Because of all of this I need a shoe that’s durable, slip resistant (and will remain slip resistant, (the sanitizer ate away ate my old shoes’ slip resistance) and can give me proper support throughout the day. They also cant suffocate my feet. Any suggestions on where I can look for my perfect shoes?

    • Curator says:

      For professional help, I suggest you go to a shoe and sports store called Big 5. I know they have one in the Bellis Fair mall in Bellingham, WA, if you live near there, but I’m not sure if there’s any other ones anywhere. You could ask one of the assistants there- they are so nice and helpful, I always go there for my runners, because I have a foot problem. You could also book an appointment with an orthopaedic doctor- they also help with shoes.
      I hope this helps, and good luck! 🙂

    Best Way To Clean Cheap Vinyl Flooring? I rent one side of a duplex and the kitchen has cheap vinyl flooring. The place was pretty well trashed when I came to live here. The walls were stained with nicotine, the carpeting in the living room actually had paths of completely compressed carpet. I’ve been working on getting everything looking better and the one spot I seem to be making no improvement is with that stupid flooring. I’ve tried everything I can think of. Tons of different non-wax cleaners, straight bleach, letting it soak, scrubbing every inch with a brush. No matter what I do or how long I spend on it when I’m done you can’t tell that I’ve even tried. Help?

    • Curator says:

      Maybe it has a lot of wax build-up, which can happen easily if someone uses something like Mop n Glo which doesn’t remove all the dirt and leaves the rest of it embedded in another coat of wax. They sell wax stripper in most supermarkets, in the same place where the liquid waxes are. It’s extra-strength ammonia. Try that on a patch, let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes, wash it away. If that patch looks cleaner, that’s your answer. Wax build up.

      If you have to strip the whole floor, make sure you have windows open, as much ventilation as possible. The ammonia stripper is pretty powerful. Do one section at a time. Let it sit, scrub it away(get a scrub brush that can go on a mop handle), and a string mop is the best thing to mop away what comes up. You will have to change the water often. Wax it after, at least 2 coats, so the wax protects it from getting dirt ground into the floor. You can use Future for that, or go to Home Depot or a janitorial supply place where they have much more hard wearing liquid acrylic waxes. Cheaper than Future, too, though you might have to buy a large bottle.

      It’s also possible, if no one ever cleaned that floor properly, that it just has dirt ground in so badly that it might never come up. But my bet is on wax build up.

    Hard Floor Vacum Cleaners,? Ok I’m looking for a hard floor vaccum who knows which brand is the best?
    I don’t know what the friend Mysa talking about ,sorry you just left a review but which brand are u talking about it?

    • Curator says:

      If you are on a budget I’d suggest you buy a “Wide-path, Premium re-wind [pet] vacuum Bissell “one.
      Forget the [pet} on it it’s the best I’ve tried in years and the extra wide brush head is superb. I purchased mine a month ago on qvc and paid $99.00!! I also have a Dyson and paid approx 400 dollars more for it…I think this vacuum has copied some of the Dyson ideas…whatever, it’s a very good cleaner.

  • Looking For Best Ways To Clean The Carpet In My Apartment? I have a steam cleaner, ok 2 steam cleaners (totally irrational about the cleanliness of my floors), and I have been busy the last few weeks and have slacked on my carpet care. I typically clean them once a week since apartment carpet gets dirty just by breathing near it.
    I have used cleaning solutions and they tend to be very expensive and my carpet just gets full of dirt within 10 minutes, and then sticks. My assumption of the dirt sticking: the solution has soap in it and leaves a small amount of residue.
    I would like to find a solution that is not only inexpensive and long lasting, but also safe for my cats. I have a 10 month old and a 10 week old, so I’m trying to use safer stuff for the kids (:
    Does anyone think that distilled water would work? Maybe adding in a few drops of distilled white vinegar or an essence so it smells pretty?
    Thank you in advance!
    Em
