Does anyone other than me just hate cleaning upholstery, no wonder everyone charges more......

sofa/loveseat/chair could take 1 to 1 1/2 hours..

Does anyone have any ideas on how to make upholstery cleaning faster??

Mr. Steamer:  How big are the houses you clean that you have to drive to the next room to clean upholstery.

Mr. Steamer:  It is all money. It is just upholstery is time consuming.  what can I say?  You have to do what you have to do.Guitar

Mr. Steamer:  We don't gallop more than 30 from home at anytime.  We used to run everywhere but I cut it back. Sure it probably hurt in the short run but you have to do what you have to do.  My trucks make money when the wand is going back and forth not when the technician is rideng with A/C and radio on.  After I considered wages, gas and wear and tear I think I am probably just as far ahead.  The same holds through for my restoratiion no more than 30 miles and sometimes I won't even go that far.  I have Sears and other companies here on a daily bases from 60 to 75 miles away.  Maybe they like the secenery, after all it is very nice here at the lake in the summer.  What happens is all of a sudden they don't have enough calls they don't show or if they do they are lucky to pay for their gas.  I find their market is the do it yourselfers and very little upsell because they are only being hirGuitared for the specials.  I kinda know, it is a one horse town. Don' you know.

They can say no...but tommorrow will be a sh*tty day....It's ok for a sub to loose money on a call....big names don't like to look at call to call monies...they look at the day of calls

so you lost on that call, but you made on the other 4 didn't ya..

I'm Mr. Steamer... they don't do that foolishness with me.. I must make money on every call.... I rather give the call for free than I loose a lone..lol
