    Number one Tip!

    Know your job better than anyone around you. I run circles around my competitors as I have the know-how, the equipment and logistical support to take on any situation to make a serious cash flow happen.

    Hey Tim, I still have no idea where those pictures went on my ipad. Good news though, I'll probably be coming back through Salt Lake on the 3rd of January if you'll be around.

    Number two Tip.

    Talk to anyone who will listen about how you can and have dried out wet, complex structures better than anyone around you. This is what we do and this is how we are going to accomplish it.

    I should be around. Let me know when and where. Are you bringing your 405 with you?

    Not bringing the 405 but that would be a good idea to drop off with Todd and let him deal with it. We'll be coming back from a vaca in San Diego on way to Aspen then back home.

    I need to find one of them for a project. Did you get ahold of my buddy in New Mexico?

    Do you HAVE TO be 24/7?
    What kind of additional insurance coverage is needed?
    Initial equipment costs for a one truck operation?
    Do you like to tear out, or would you rather keep intact and dry out?

    This is what I like to see. If you want to get into this business to be a small payer to a medium sized player you must be a 24/7, 365 for the first few years to get your name out.

    Insurance wise I like to see $500k for General Liability per occurrence (want to see it at $2 to 5 mill if you do mold, lead or asbestos). You are going to need Environmental insurance, Inland Marine Insurance (to cover property being transported, contractors equipment, work locations) and Baliee's insurance to cover property of others you are transporting or storing (contents)

    Equipment wise you need (at a minimum) 3 LGR dehus (2 losses at same time), and at a minimum 10 air movers. I'd also like to see a Hepa air scrubber, Moisture Meters( small pin and hammer probe) ((my favorite is a $400 Delmhorst Bd-10 as it is simple to use and does the job at a very fair cost)), a inexpensive Hygrometer and a infrared laser thermometer.

    I had the mindset when I first started WDR that tear out is the way yo go as you can maximize your revenue stream but later down the road figured doing all that tear out is crazy hard work and there had to be a better way to dry wet structures. After some serious in-depth training I learned In-Place Drying. To me you are a serious hero and professional if you can come into a loss and give the confidence to a homeowner that you can dry carpet, pad, drywall in-place, without tear out.

    99% of all the jobs I dry out are In-place without incident.

    Hey bud, I am doing really good. We had a new addition come along 12 weeks ago (Stella Mae) and business as of now is slow as the winter season is in full effect. I'll be in Coming thru Las Cruces on the 27th of this month if you'd like to meet up for 10 or so minutes.

    Follow me and you will learn a lot as I am one of the best of the best in this industry.
