How much would you charge to suck up 10-20 gallons of grey water then dry the room?

A Bedroom or 2 in a condo/apartment.

how many blowers and for how long?

or would you need a dehu for a job like that?





ps. yes I did register for a IICRC class coming up

thanks

10 to 20 gallons??? give me a break. Suck it up? is there pad under it? Since it is possible 2 bedrooms then the wall should be checked. What is the source if the bathroom then vanity etc has to be checked. 1 am for ever 12' of wall are you floating the carpet or top down drying?? Grey water can very rapidly turn black. If you have to ask you shouldn't be doing it??? But like most just load it up with equipment for a week or so and send the bill. This is why I'am no longer doing WD to many experts on lack of knowledge?

After you leave the drying equipment on site for a week, you tear it all out and rebuild it

what about simple basic water jobs?
like the bathtub over flow maybe 5 gallons?
do you like those?
any money in it?
I only care about money.

Splash there is no such thing as a basic water job.
Water escapes or overflows in bathrooms or kitchens are the moset difficult. The two most expensive rooms in your house can be a nightmare when water hits.

Pretty clear that I don't. I got better things to do with my time with the products that I am moving now. My executive Club membership continues to grow more and more each week, and is definatly paying off since introduction.That was one of my better ideas. At $99/year, it does not bring in all the big fees that the IICRC manages to bring in, but my club has almost 100% profit potential, with very little overhead to run it. Even the IICRC can't claim that with their top heavy structure.
