I sell my customers new ones, then I take the old ones and clean them at home when I have time and then sell them

I have a customer that does high end homes. He says that he never cleans in front of the customers because their furniture is never really dirty. He would run a chemical sponge over the furniture taking his time to spruce it up and charge $450.00. The furniture looks great, the cleaner looks great and the customer is happy. That's his story and he has been working successfully like that for years.

Upholstery cleaning is too much like real work...

that is IF you're gonna do it properly.  I found that $38 per seating position ($3 extra for reversable cushions if I feel like it, and $8 extra for pleats if I feel like it, and $12 extra for a pleated fringe across the bottom of a 3-seater... IF I feel I can get it....) is a good price comporomise between GETTING the job or just QUOTING on it.  Makes it worth my while almost.

Same with car interiors.  Everything comes out easily, but getting every surface takes much time.  $85 minimum charge for a 4-door hatch-back.  Dog owner?  Much more.

Carpet/upholstery protection extra

Cheers,

Allen
