    Wiping all the walls

    I got a phone call today to clean a dentist office. I went there and it is 2600 sq/ft with 4 offices, 1 waiting area, 1 receptionist desk and one large area where the dentist works on patients. They would like all the walls wiped and the trim. I have spot wiped walls but never an entire...

    Help!-Adult Diapers in Public Restrooms????????????

    I have an account that the people blow shit all over the bowl and under the seat. I am tempted to drop off a cheese platter or something to bind them up a little. It's crazy, luckily it pays well Sent from my SM-N910V using TMF Forums mobile app

    Let's see how this goes!

    I at least have to give it a shot. If not I would not be where I am today. I see a lot of people that give up before they even give it a shot. It may not work well but it didn't cost me a ton of money and not a great deal of time. I did advertise a few other places and it did not pan out and it...

    Let's see how this goes!

    I agree but they continue to send it to my house so it has to have some response for it to keep coming. I still go door to door every now and then but figured I would try this.

    Rough Idea on Time to Clean

    Sprayed them with ds2 and scrubbed with a terrycloth bonnet. I did end up using my jag cub to extract. Not sure if that was too much but it worked to remove all of the girls hair and lint that was pressed into the chair fibers Sent from my SM-N910V using TMF Forums mobile app

    Rough Idea on Time to Clean

    The price i used for cleaning the carpets was close to what earl804 posted, would anyone be willing to post the rates they use and the sqft where it decreases. I did a quick search and was not able to find anything real quick. For sure i was low on the chairs.

    They are more like office chairs on wheels that tilt.

    Rough Idea on Time to Clean

    Ok that sounds better, it took me 6.5 hrs for everything. I definitely need to raise the price per chair because I think that is what took me the longest and then moving the tables took the second longest. I helper would have been a huge help with the chairs tables and picking up. Thanks for the...

    Rough Idea on Time to Clean

    I would like to hear how long you think it would take you to clean 3100sqft of carpet with a cimex and also clean 57 chairs. The building has two classrooms where almost all of the chairs are located with tables and then there is a small kitchenette area, three offices and the main hall. The...

    RECOAT VCT

    There are matts but they do not like them close to the doors so they keep them about 6 feet in from the entrance which in my eyes defeats the purpose. The guys are hard on the floors they just had the vct tile put in and did not have anything done to it right away. Then the about 6 to 8 months...

    RECOAT VCT

    One of my accounts that I clean (I didn't do the floor)all of the entrances are turning yellow. I was thinking it was from the grease from the adjacent repair shop. But it could be low end product. I notice that the yellowing is going in size meaning the yellowing is increasing in size away from...

    Customer call

    I agree that this was a lesson learned. This is something I will definitely keep an eye on now for this customer and all the others. I feel I do a better job than a hack and clean very detailed areas. I just felt like the customer was sitting on the pot a little too long to notice this small...

    Vehicle wrap

    Vehicle wrap

    Am I being too picky or does this look like shit? The one pic is near the rear where the plastic bumper meets the steel body and the other is edge of the liftgate. I guess I have never looked at wraps up close but didn't think it would look like this.
