This is a quick video on figuring out commercial carpet cleaning production rates. See, once we know how many hours a job will take then it is easy to times by an hourly rate good for us. $150- $200 is great for commercial.

That's some great info. Some of the best I've heard on the subject. Do you apply this to residential? I do apply a difficulty and time factor to my residential, just not in the exact same way. I find the only way I can make residential, which is the bulk of my work, profitable, is to charge different rates for different scenarios.

Not on a spreadsheet but in my head.
We mainly focus on tile for residential so if I see a weird hose run, grout lines that dont come clean easily or a crazy customer I start to mark it up 10,20,30 %.

So if we start at $1 sqr ft for arguments sake I might go to $1.10 for a weird hose run or $1.30 for 2 areas.
