That is the point several of us have been trying to make " charge enough
so you feel you don't have to do 5 jobs per day TO MAKE A LIVING ".

Do a thorough and complete job, ( This means not using you floor tool on
the upholstery or steps. Have the right tools for the job, Change tools
when required, take your time, move furniture, tab furniture,   do good
work and charge accordingly. Doing 5 to seven jobs per day , every day is
RIDICULOUS IMO,

Raise the prices and make as much on 3-4 jobs and
relax a bit. If you have five customers per day , you are not short of
business, it is time to start raising rates until you start leveling off on the
work load. You will still be making as much money and getting it from a
more appreciative and better clientele. IMHO

This advise applies well if you are not subbing. If you are subbing I
assume you don't have any control over what your price structure or work
load is??? Or am I all wet here.?

Gordie is right on there. That is my philosophy too. Only I only do 3 jobs a day.

Take care,

Lisa

I once worked with a guy who used only his wand to do stairs. But when he got to the vertical part of the step he would hold the wand on the edge of the stair and just let the water soak down to the next step.  When it was fully saturated he'd pull the vac hose off the wand and use the hose cuff to dry the entire step.

Not my idea of doing stairs but everyone has their own technique. I asked him if he ever worried about overwetting or browning out the stairs. He laughed and said "Heck No". This of course was after his morning coffee and wacky tobacky cigarette.

All in a days work.

I'm positive about the negative...and negative about the positive.

I have cleaned like that a time or two and once I Browned a full flight it
wasn't pretty.

Also something very few people realize. Under the steps many people
store things like family pictures and other things they have in boxes.
when doing steps and just spraying to your hearts content and then
suctioning with the hose you may have a dripping problem down onto the
contents below. ( BEEN THERE DONE THAT )

The internal spray tool stops the majority of any chance of this happening

I have the 40" right below it

 

but the one you're looking at getting as long as it's comfortable to YOU...should be good

should hold heat well also

probably better than mine for risers come to think of it

I have never brown stairs... been doing this a long time... works for me... when you go over the steps with a vac hose, they always looks wonderful... actually it adds to the job.... my customers love the way I do stairs I get compliments all the time... looks much better than what it does with a stair tool
