    Was wondering how & what you guys are charging for tile counter tops?

    Hey guys I was wondering how you charge for tile counters. When you are already doing the floors. I have a minimum of $250-$275 for counters to clean and seal. Just wondering what and how everybody else prices them as a min. & as an add on.

    Servpro employment ?

    Just being honest. Your chances are not good about getting hired. The reason I see is because you already have a carpet cleaning company. So if you go to work for them and do a good job to where the custys start requesting you. Servpro could loose work and customers. Even if you tell them your...

    I got a customer that wants me to use no chemicals at all for their cleaning.

    Try using Procyon plus. Works great no soaps no dyes no smell. I use it when I run into these people. Or women who are pregnant. Use as a pre spray get it as hot as you can. Let it dwell then clean water rinse.

    Finally landed the big residential job $$$$

    Thanks guys. It's just me and a helper. The rugs I explained I have to do off site and to give up to 2-3 weeks. But the rest we can knock out in a day. A VERY long day. She is in the process of moving to a bigger house so there is not a rush for the rugs.

    Finally landed the big residential job $$$$

    Most of the price comes from the area rugs. Carpets went .25. Sofas went $12 but gave her free protectant on the furn. Rugs went $3.00 all wool with fringes. 1200+ sq of rugs. Believe me I have her a good deal. There is ALOT of work involved.
