But attitude will only carry you so far. Customers (and your employees) appreciate specific “Moment of Truth” actions such as…

Always protect your customer’s hard surface floors. For example…

1) Put down a drop cloth. These can be disposable drops or the heavy painter canvas drops painters use.

3) Always place an absorbent “bath mat” at transition points from damp carpets.

4) Carry a micro-fiber mop and just automatically “touch up” your client’s hard surface floors as you finish. (Even if they say “Oh, you don’t need to do that!”)

Restoration HINT: Especially with those nasty (but oh so profitable!) CAT 3 sewage losses use disposable, absorbent drop cloths.

Commercial HINT: Be especially careful with slip-and-fall hazards with your account’s customers. Always place warning signs and keep your hoses under control.
