The only problem with fabric protectors is that most cleaners only know what is on the lable.  And they can't even follow the instructions on the jug.  All they know is easy money.  That makes it a hard sell for properly trained technicians  when the previous cleaned used the old bull baffles brains to make his commission not knowing just what rhe limitations or expectations can be expected from the product he or she just applied and what if any problems it may caues in the future.  Go back to the old adds extrax to clean  berber and stainmaster carpets.  I could go on but i have my point.  Again this is my opinion.

What the heck is this guy saying, or trying to say. I had to read that paragraph 3 times and I still don't know what he's talking about. take a deep breath and lie down DOUG.......everything will be o.k. the last time I saw a Jug of anything was back in the 60's except for the girl I saw the other day downtown. Doug you would have been happy with those Jugs, and trust me you wouldn't read the label either, you would just jump in and smother yourself in it.

If your cleaning price is $0.15 per sq ft. you are about right.  I see most of you apply scotchguard that should be worth anout .10 sq. ft.  I prefer to use Scotchgard there is adifference.

We charge 100% too.  It's by the room rate 23-25 dollars.....So if we clean for 25 we gard for 25.  75% on furniture.

btw I thought they stop making Scotchgard????non biodegradable

I charge 100% of the cleaning charge. I've also found it very helpful to give them something to read after you leave. By that I mean.....I've printed out a small info sheet pertaining to whatever service they asked for. On it, I list the product that was used and what certain things they can expect from the product. Something general to answer most questions they might have. Works great andn shows that you care enough to make sure they understand the product.

You people must have a different product over there.

 

Down here, we had SCOTCHGARD without the U.

Is there another product on the market with a similar brand name, as I see this one referred to more often??

Enquisitive

Cheers,

Shortwun.

Shortwun:  There is a great difference.  3M Scotchgard is the brand name recconnized world over. Scotchguard is a fake kind of a generic of the real thing. Ken, I thought even you would know something as clear as that. Guitar
