    I would have to see it in person but I would charge A LOT! That looks like a lot of slow, close-quarters, back twisting, detail tool work. Plus, I hate the smell of cigarette smoke and the smell of cat mess.

    its not that you need to see it in person but every inch of the place has to be cleaned to remove the nicotine , pet treat carpet, clean sofa, remove mattress,,,,

    im thinking since I do not know of anyone else besides me in this area that does this kind of stuff, and since you have to be thorough so there are no call backs, and in order for them to sell it it has to be clean and non stinking,,, they are going to re paint the whole thing,, im thinking 3k

    Well they did not like my prices, they did not believe the cig smoke was that bad (it was horrible, I had to wear a mask), they did not think the walls were bad (there was yellow dripping nicotine on everything) they didn't want the furniture or curtains or blinds done, my price was too high)
    original quote for the entire RV top to bottom, 3200.00. I will post pics of the carpet cleaning which is all I did because they didn't like my price,, 850$ is what we settled on for cleaning carpet, topical pet treatment, removal of nicotine on carpet.

    I had recently carpet and upholstery cleaning in the house after minor basement fire ( bad enough that my clothing reeked of smoke odor). Obviously they didn't disclosed the fire thing at time of booking. AlsoI was told" we already took of the problem with Odoban". Well, I left it at that. On top of the smoke odor, carpet was very soiled, 2 dogs, 2 cats, 6 occupants. They liked the finished product, but I wouldn't dare to post after pictures in here. I would get bashed instantly and I would deserve it. Ohh, well...

    I completely understand it, but it was a fair price for working in those conditions and the conditions were horrible. Now they have a filthy Airstream with clean carpets !!!

    Odds are their thought was just to make it better and their budget was probably less than half your estimate.
