Commission pay usually transpires to $50-$80 an hour. On most jobs, I move the hoses only and make sure...

    welcome to square foot pricing

    Old post, late response, sorry for that, but it's pressure washing season upon us again, so tread is relevant. I try to use minimum chemistry with 3400 psi Husqvarna equipment ( cold washing) Using turbo head gets better, quicker results, lot of patience, rain gear is a must. Happy cleaning

    Anybody ONLY do carpet cleaning?

    I'm not going to look for all your posts , but I like to address your trial & error process. Sure, we all go through that in some point, but never with basic stuff, like applying high alkaline prespray to any upholstery ( not only delicate fabric) My point is that we learn before we earn...

    Anybody ONLY do carpet cleaning?

    Someone already mentioned that added services mean more profit, but if majority of your work is carpet cleaning , good for you. Each additional service requires more tools. I love to clean upholstery ( more stationary, less chemistry, not as tiring, better ROI, etc.) , so I carry 2 diferent...

    Smak - sharp shooter dilemma

    Thanks for your thoughts,. I agree with everything you said. Feel liikes Evo, looks like Evo, its got to be Evo. Like I said, I wasn't unable to check out 2 jetter, but when holding 16 inch wide 4 jet wand, it seemed to be heavier than specs proclaimed 8.5 lb. Aramsco wasn't able to find...

    Tile and grout cleaning

    There were few discussions about purpose of 4 jet tile&grout wand. I used to love my Prochem 1 jet wand, jet was blasting grime from the corners, no agitation needed. 4 jet wand , in my opinion is useful in household setting, for light to medium soiled tiles, where agitation has been used...

    Does wand size matter?

    Nice, Rob's thread went straight to .... I've always had and liked diferent styles of wands having on truck. . By size, @rob allen you mean width, height , tube diameter and number of jets? 14" wand can have 4 jets, 13.5" might sport 6 jets. I prefer 62" tall with a 2" tube and six jets...

    Be smarter than the dirt

    I do remember this one and without the doubt I've expected trouble going forward. First of all, without sufficient power ( I know that you're determined and knowledgeable ) that kind of project can became a nightmare. I had similar scenario with a " soul food" buffet style restaurant. I...

    Let’s talk LVT & LVP

    Yes, you're right, but there will be many arguing that!!! And yet, I'll have soon enough water extraction job in the basement, where there would be underlayment without moisture barrier ( not that it would matter if there is 4" of water present)

    Let’s talk LVT & LVP

    I like e my dungeon with 8' high ceiling ( can go to 9.5' for an industrial look) . Tiles had been there for a while, still can't find efflorescence. I wouldn't change it now. Workmanship is remarkable. Pattern makes it is non - dungeon-y, grout is intact, looks like tiles were installed...
