The Last Word April 2016: Photo challenge, Facebook update and more


The April 2016 Last Word features Annette Ellisor’s challenge-winning photo, a Facebook discussion of collection problems and more.

Photo of the Month Contest

The photo contest winner this month is Annette Ellisor with Accuclean in Lexington, SC. Her company will receive a chemical prize package from Solutions by Steam Pros worth $500.

Annette describes this particular job: “We received a call from one of our customers who was in a complete panic after spilling a half gallon of green paint on his one-year-old carpet while painting a custom, elevated train track. I let the customer know to place wet towels on the paint, and we would be there in a few hours. After prespraying, we agitated the soiled areas and removed quite a bit of the paint. For what remained, we used Avenge Pro.”

For an opportunity to win a chemical prize package from Solutions by Steam Pros (worth $500), send your images and a brief 100-word de­scription of how you obtained your results to Jeff Cross, executive edi­tor, [email protected] or 193 Purple Finch Loop, Pataskala, OH, 43062. Contest rules available by request.
