    Church pew time and pricing

    I did get a larger stair tool. So I think spraying down with a good enzyme prespray using the hudroforce and using a stair tool should cut some major time off of the cleaning. I like the idea of switching back and forth. One presprays and works it in using a brush(heck maybe even a push...

    Church pew time and pricing

    Does 10 minutes sound about right each one? Never cleaned a pew before, can only guess about time. They are old and brown, easy fabric to clean. Didnt see major staining.

    Church pew time and pricing

    I have 42 pews to bid out. They are 15 feet by 1.5 feet. How long using a upholstery tool would this take each? I am guessing 8 to 10 minutes each. So at 10 minutes each, I am guessing 7 hours to complete the work. (10 x 42 = 420. 420/ 60 minutes) So taking my helpers rate of $115 an...

    How do I clean a leather couch?

    The most important aspect of cleaning the leather that is cleanable is learning how to do a proper dog and pony show. Cause at $40-50ish dollars a cushion, you need to make it look look there is some brain surgery going on.

    With the age of the internet and how people take to review sites right away to voice their opinion, are any of directly dealing with this issue at the time of the job to help avoid negative reviews? What I mean is, when I finish the job, I hand the customer a 2 page information packet. I am...

    What rinse? and how many gpm?

    I just assume really that all rinses call for the same dilution ratio, and I also assume the TM engineers have designed the chemical flow system to work with what the rinse calls for. Alot of assumptions on my part. And you know what they say about assumptions. Either way I use all fiber...
