I am at $100. For a sectional. I don't do leather or high end fabrics . I did clean this antique fainting sofa a few days ago only because she said she would not hold me responsible if it I ruined it as she was thinking of re- upholstering it. She cleaned it herself before I got there and had yellowing. I used encapsulation and a small brush. Used flex ice on a white towel to fix yellow.
It did not come out perfectly. I'm still learning

I’m still learning too but I know what my labor cost are. Also a lot of my customers are in rural areas and when it takes you 20 to 30 minutes to drive to a customers home you also need to take that into consideration when you’re bidding work why would I want to go to a customers home in breakeven or lose money.

From what I am seeing on this fourm I might be too low. I try to shoot for $100./ hour for cleaning not drive time. But I also have to judge the value of the item I am cleaning. I have told people $50 for an area rug and they told me they only paid $39. For it on sale at Lowe's. Cheaper to trash it and buy a new one. I cleaned a viscose rug last week, pain in my butt, and she said it cost her $129. Took me an hour to clean.

17 per lf. Most sectionals are between 17 and 21 linear feet. So 289-357 is a good estimate for what we charge.

No good deed goes unpunished. Usually it is customer like this that will complain about every single little thing I would walk away and feel good about myself rather than slave on someone's stuff for very little or no pay.

I charge $150 for sofa and love seat or small sectional. Ottoman $20-45 or free depending on several things. It usually cost more for Haitian Cotton, feather down or “S” fiber.
