We’re opening up a new section on the site for feedback on our articles. We aren’t just committed to providing top-notch cleaning services for Amarillo and surrounding areas, we want to share our thoughts on the trade. Here, we’ll post visitor’s responses to our articles.

“Admiring the commitment you put into your blog and in depth information you offer. It’s good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same out of date rehashed information. Wonderful read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.”

From Tashia, June 27th 2018:

“We’re a group of volunteers and starting a new scheme in our community. Your site provided us with valuable info to work on. You’ve done a formidable job and our entire community will be thankful to you.”

From Margarito, June 22nd 2018:

“With [having] so much written content do you ever run into any problems of [plagiarism] or copyright violation? My site has a lot of unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any methods to help reduce content from being ripped off? I’d really appreciate it.”

Margarito, here is a great starting point for learning about protecting your content. While this deals with the legal aspect of it, it doesn’t mention technology for preventing the actual copying of your protected content. Articles like this one discuss the ability to insert javascript that will disable the copy function when users are browsing your site, but as several users note, the technologically-minded will likely find a way to bypass this with little trouble. Try searching for plug-ins that offer additional security. Protecting your content legally will at least give you recourse should you discover that someone has been republishing your work. Good luck!

From Kristi, May 26th 2018:

“Thank you for another informative web site. Where else could I get that kind of info written in such an ideal way? I’ve a project that I’m just now working on, and I’ve been on the look out for such information.”

More to come soon!

Thanks to NAPA in Hereford!

Sincere thanks to Austin of NAPA Auto Parts in Hereford, TX for hiring Fail-Safe for our Stripping and Waxing services. Link: NAPA in Hereford, TX

The job was roughly 3,660 square feet. With a crew of one, starting on Saturday evening, the floor was completely stripped and waxed in about 18 hours total. Austin was ready to start getting things back on to the floor by Sunday afternoon.

We’d also like to extend our appreciation to the hard-working crew at NAPA who spent the time and energy getting all the stock moved off of the sales floor and into the back for us. It’s things like that which allow a floor technician to come in and get right to work doing what they do: Stripping and Waxing. Thanks, everyone! If you guys have as much consideration for your customers as you did for Fail-Safe Cleaning Solutions, I’m sure there’s no better place in Hereford for auto and truck parts!

A good deal of what you see here was moved in preparation.

A story about the other guys.

A customer contacted us for stripping and waxing services in December of last year. The first night working on the job, we immediately realized there was an uncommon amount of wax on the floor.

As it turned out, wax had been applied to the floor on a weekly basis for roughly five years. A situation like this can be a floor technician’s worst nightmare. The intensity of the labor and amount of time and materials required is greatly increased.

Never one to back out of a tough job, Fail-Safe began negotiating for a price adjustment to compensate for the extra labor and materials. Naturally, the customer wanted to shop around and get the best deal possible.

One of the big companies here in Amarillo quoted them a price that was over two times what Fail-Safe had proposed. Without going into the specifics, here’s how their pricing compared:

The other guys: $1.37 per square foot, estimated completion time of three days

Fail-Safe: $0.56 per square foot, estimated completion time of 4-5 days

The customer decided to go with Fail-Safe. How did it turn out?Tough strip and wax job

Commercial stripping and waxingThree days later, with a crew of one and at under half the cost of the competition, Fail-Safe leaves the customer with a beautiful floor to be proud of.

We’ve wondered ever since, why did the other company charge so much? Is it because they were going to hire a whole crew to help move furniture? Was it to cover the cost of labor for a whole crew to work three days? Were they going to use a more expensive product to strip the floors? We’ll never know, but it’s clear that in this situation, our competition couldn’t match our pricing.

But we were able to match their quality.
