Wow! How long do you spend on a set of stairs? Your price is almost 3x what I charge.
time will depend.
But usually 1 hour plus
vacuuming usually takes about 15 minutes 30 or more for worst case scenario/super soiled)
All depends on soil.
vacuuming pile, edges and baseboards (if applicable)
Application of pre spray
agitation of all to be cleaned surface areas
and thorough rinsing and extraction
I mean thorough.
1 step usually gets 6 passes, 4 dry strokes
air circulation (running fan)
There are plenty of homes in the bay area that carpet is on the stairs only and for synthetic the cost will be our minimum service fee$150.00 when combined with other services the starting rate is $110.00 for synthetic. Wool fiber starts at $170.00 (minimum service fee does not apply to wool fiber)
I have a client that owns a house that she rents out to UC berkeley students that house has 2 levels of wide stairs and that itself cost her $450.00 to clean, plus 3 more narrow stairs
I give her a deal on those at 80 each =$240
these stairs are dirty and no joke, its hard intense labor and she knows it.
she has a 15x10 living room and that gets done at a cost of $170.00
and yes this is the rate I charge.
I take the extra ten minutes to clean risers, undersides of furniture, tiny closets and/or behind doors.I know a guy that when cleaning couches he does the underside of the couch as well. Kind of reminds me of cleaning the risers on stairs. If it’s not dirty, or if it ain’t broke comes to mind.
I take the extra ten minutes to clean risers, undersides of furniture, tiny closets and/or behind doors.
Then I go home, have a couple beers and fret about my thoroughness. It's a mental disorder.
I dry vac the undersides of furniture and brush/rake carpeted areas that I'm not getting wet. Behind doors too. Mostly for cobwebs and dust. I don't want the one super-anal lady/guy to do a white glove check and have it come up lazy.You clean under the furniture or the underside of the furniture? For way ever it's worth, I only clean the risers if dirty, I clean behind doors, and without a doubt I have beers at the end of every day.
