The Mytee Lite ii carpet extractor got a totally new face lift for 2014. The Mytee 8070 as it is officially known is one of our best-selling portable carpet cleaning machines! Mytee beefed up the performance along with user convenience and safety. If you have been looking for a heated carpet extractor and upholstery cleaning machine that can do the job of a full-size carpet extractor but want a compact design the new Mytee Lite is for you.

The new Mytee 8070 carpet extractor is perfect for the mobile car detailer or small detail shop operation. It is light weight, easy to move around and stow yet a very powerful carpet cleaner unit. This is one of Mytee’s best-selling upholstery machines and the first in the industry to include an on-board heater for maximum cleaning power. At a water capacity of three gallons, it’s perfect for both spotting and smaller car interior cleaning jobs. Typically it takes about 3 gallons to clean the upholstery, carpet and mats of an average size car. So the Mytee 8070 is perfect if you are cleaning a couple interiors per day.

If your detailing operation calls for units that hold more water capacity Detail King also offers a more Mytee units. The Mytee HP100, Mytee HP60 and the Mytee Deluxe Prep Center have larger solution and recovery tanks if you clean several car interiors per day or focus on RV’s, buses, SUV’s and conversion vans. The Mytee Lite ii also can act as a great back up for on eof the larger capacity Mytee extractors in a situation where you could use a second unit. Detail King can also provide Mytee carpet extractor accessories, repair parts and all the car interior extractor chemicals and cleaners that you would need including maintenance products.




Nick Vacco, Detail King’s founder and CEO, shared his thoughts about competition in the workplace in an article published yesterday — May 31, 2012 — by Entrepreneur Magazine, and what he had to say is certainly worth sharing with our customers and readers here at Detail King.

In an article titled When Employees Become the Competition, Vacco describes how you — the professional auto detailing business owner — can get past concerns about hiring and training an employee, only to have that worker turn around and run their own business in direct competition with yours.

Vacco’s advice to entrepreneurs includes information about the pros and cons of non-compete agreements, but most of his comments revolve around hiring employees who want to advance in your company, not necessarily engulf and devour it. He also says competition shouldn’t always be looked at as a bad thing, adding it keeps business leaders on their toes, pushing them to do better.
