What is the sq ft ? Tough to tell from the pics. TBH ... carpet doesn’t look dirty at all . Machine although may not be the equipment of choice ( Cimex or similar would be better results ) can’t see why you can’t bang off 1500 sq ft an hr .

How'd it come out? It can be done, even with that little thing, I've done it before (similar situation too, 8 hours to do half a school, he called me on his way to the airport) but the end results... You're not really doing anything. I call it wet vacuuming, you're moving too fast to really remove any more soil than you would with a standard vacuum.

I re-negotiated for 12 hours. The hallway and main sitting area I did last night, why it looks clean. I’m doing the auditorium tonight. It is a full extraction. The hallways was an extraction because of LOTS of coffee spills. But the sitting area was an Encap.
I don’t think he was paying attention to the estimate, just wanted to go on vacation. Size wise the auditorium sits about 200. It’s a full extraction again lots of spills.
“8 hours to do half a school,” lol was he going to Vegas?

I use to clean 2 of the floors on this building with a ninja classic 200 psi and buckets on weekend. Twice a year. Pog was my spotter and formula 90 in the machine. “Good ole wet-n-jet. Damn that freakin sucked. Guy i worked for was cheap. He ended up loosing that customer (Oracle) to the building maint. Truck mounts were no go on this building. Due to the magna lock doors. So it was a porty hackers job or vlm to have. Shame, me and another guy were going to take the client out from under him. But maintenance beat us to it.
