I'm a window cleaner and have added carpet cleaning to my offering. I already have an existing book of business, so jobs aren't too hard to come by and I know with experience I'll get better (first window job I did 5 years ago took me 8 hours, same house now takes me 3 hours) I felt like today was a success but it was a struggle. It took me 3.5 hours to do a $220 house.... Here are some pictures of my struggles. I'm using a 360 & cfx zx. I suck at cords/hoses and need some help. At one point I thought I would tangle myself into a trap. Second is that instead of running hose up stairs, I pulled it up through a ledge, and third should I large area rugs and clean under or leave them because the carpet should be clean underneath right? I moved it and cleaned under to be safe. Hopefully the pictures give a better idea of what I'm talking about.
