I am pretty fast on PM jobs, but at a residential customer , I slow down talk to them and provide a high quality service which I am charging for. Now I don't think that I would spend six hours there but 3-4 most likely because I would have to do all the steps. 4 rooms and a hall at a residential and I agree it cant be done in a hourMight point is... You can't have it both ways. You can speed through a job and clean it superficially and get a fitting amount. Nothing wrong with that.
You just can't speed through a job (cause yer such a stud) and leave it thoroughly clean and thoroughly dry.
Conversely, I don't think it's wise to take several hours doing a job thoroughly and completely dry while getting $1-200....
That's just not sustainable.
Charge low, go fast and get on to the next one... You'll still make a ton of money.
Just don't delude yourself into thinking you're also offering a top notch service..
Just makes you seem stupid...
who held the camera? or did you use a tri pod?Yeah no way thats why I said its at least a 3 or 4 hour job...Especially with furniture in the way. hell I did one this week... 1 room took me 2.5 hours....yeah that sounds crazy and it is... I could have knocked it out in an hour but the result wouldnt be anywhere near the same...I was also filming during the cleaning with the go pro and wanted to convey the best case cleaning scenario in the video....
I have all steps filmed ready to edit down...
Sometimes in Houston it rains 4 days straight, Humidity is 99% and when your cleaning all the windows are sweating and mirrors and tables from moisture, so you have to slow down and get the fans going and extract extract extract !I've had long ass porty jobs from Hell before.
As a former porty guy.
Make sure to not skimp out on your cleaner. Power scrub where needed , this will help you finish each room faster and easier.
4 rooms, hall and 2 stairs with a porty and myself , would take me like 2 to 4 hours.
Tm time, 2 to 3 hours
awesome ive been thinking about a booster when I do all the highrise and condosMachine on the left (clear tank) is an old U.S. Products HHP 300 . One on right is an old EDIC Stealth 17 . EDIC is my booster with the Electro 052 (primary motor conical) and the Electro 033 in series . The U.S. Products machine has a Lamb conical 117500-13 .
Sorry , never heard that term used before but both machines as you can see are hooked together . The picture of the hose in the grass is 100 ft. all coiled and twisted . Was in a hurry to try this out before work !! LOL !! 50 ft. Of 2" and two 25 ft. Sections of 1 1/2 " .is that a double hook up ?
See we get lots of work that the homeowner is ocd on vacumming daily , no pets , or kids. You walk in and most cleaners would wonder why they are even cleaning carpets. Not all 1300 sf homes with two staircases are the same. That is why I don't advertise any prices.Well I just I want to be clear, the 6 hours is what I am hoping to bring down to 4 this was more of a learning experience than a job. The steps used to clean were through and had to move some furniture primarily in living room and dining.
The amount charged was truly a bonus the client was found in casual conversation. I told here I was in the business she asked if I could help I said sure. Wanted to get some more experience on a residential setting. Again by no means would I charge 120 for this job I mean it was clean prior and there were little to no stains. So it was pre vac, pre spray, dwell time agitation then extract setting blowers along the way.
Constantly get told the carpets dry quicker than the last guys.You leave yer clients booties or swim trunks?
I'm not going to argue.Slice it anyway you want. Quoting him, he regularly sets up and breaks down a 1300', 2 stairwell job in 60-90 minutes.
That's 10 minutes to set up, IF you ignore the client and another 10 minutes to break down. Again of course ignoring any questions or concerns (time restraint) the client might have.
If it takes under 1 minute for the client to pay and say goodbyes, that leaves 70-40 minutes to clean the carpet , using "90%" of the steps that I employ...
I believe that the speed is possible (if you knock out the client when they open the door) but there's NO FUKING WAY IN GODS GREEN EARTH you're providing quality....
I'm not going to argue.
I'll clear 500 k
Constantly get repeats and referrals
Will add another truck this spring or next.
You can reply how I'm full of shit all you want.
In the mean time I'll keep doin what I'm doing.
Just started a painting and power washing company that will clear 300 the first year.
I don't know what I'm doing, I guess I just keep getting lucky again and again and again
You say you can consistently clean that scenario (4 rooms 1300sf and 2 staircases) in 60-90 minutes, pull up to pull away.View attachment 55439View attachment 55440View attachment 55441
I know Camachos methods would have turned these carpets to Mineable gold, the rest of us just have to settle for transforming the carpet close to original condition
Nice catch. Rotovac is hella slow if yer trying to clean well with it.You say you can consistently clean that scenario (4 rooms 1300sf and 2 staircases) in 60-90 minutes, pull up to pull away.
Are you claiming that kind of speed while using a rotovac?
