"Incredible job! So thorough and really went the extra mile to make everything look spectacular! Our 13-year-old carpet looks like new, and our sofa and love seat" are gorgeous! So pleased with everything that was done for us!!!

-Lisa R.

"Worst experience with a contractor of any kind I have ever had. Christmas (owner) immediately encountered problems with lines which apparently" hadn't been flushed properly from the last job he did. Then he tried to pitch the "oxy clean" option for a $100 more without even looking at the carpet. He basically just quickly dragged his carpet cleaning machine across the carpet of each room without paying any extra attention to a single stain regardless of size or appearance. The house actually smelled like it was cleaned with dirty residue from the last job he was at. Spent less than an hour cleaning 5 rooms plus a hallway and staircase. I was not happy with the job he did and the people who bought the house were also displeased. When we informed Mr he only asked if I had mailed his check yet. I told him he wasn't going to get paid until he returned to relook at some areas which still appeared to be unclean. When he returned, he was extremely rude to the new owner and when he was shown the areas in question, he just yelled and said "those stains won't come out anyway!" and stormed out. He then called, began yelling about the new owner and demanding to be paid. Our question was why would he pitch the oxy clean option if he knew the stains weren't going to come out and why didn't he inspect the carpet first and set expectations for what would and wouldn't come out with just a basic cleaning? I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND CLEANING TO ANYONE EVER. If Angie's List gave a lower rating than "F", that's what this business would receive.

Four Tips Before Getting a Professional Upholstery Cleaning

A professional cleaner isn't necessary for every kind of furniture mess or soiling, but there are times when it's the best choice. Here's what to consider before you hire a professional upholstery cleaner.

Angie's Answers

I second the original question (still unanswered). Speaking as someone who logged in today to try to find an attorney, I see this category as one that's exactly what I have my Angie's List membership for:

1. It's important that I find a good one
2. I'm not an expert enough to know myself who is a good one
3. The industry is full of advertisements and misinformation
4. I wish I knew what experiences other people have had

I don't care about lawns--I planted mine in clover and don't have to mow it. When I do need to mow I use a rotary Fiskars mower, which is great--or a scythe. That's right--a scythe (the European type, which is smaller, and it's very good exercise). Gas-powered mowers, chemical fertilizers and weed killers--all nasty stuff that gets into everyone's air, soil, and water. I'm sure my neighbor doesn't like my wildflowers, semi-wild pockets of fruit bushes, and unmown areas and yes, dandelions (I have 10 acres) but that's too bad. It's better habitat for wildlife, especially the pollinators on which our food supply depends. I think this obsession with the Great American Lawn is a waste of time and resources. Plant some food instead.

I'm not sure Angie et. al. want you to have a complete answer to this question. By re-subscribing at the Indiana State Fair in 2012, I think I paid $20.00 per year for a multi- year subscription. Maybe even less. At the other extreme--and I hope my memory isn't faulty about this--I think the price, for my area, for ONE year was an outrageous $70.00. And they debited me automatically without warning. I had to opt out of that automatic charge. I like Angie's List, but if some of the companies they monitor behaved the way they do in this respect, they'd be on some sort of Pages of Unhappiness. I'll be interested to see if this comment gets published or censored out of existence.

That's very difficult to answer without seeing the house. As one poster said, the prep is the most important part. On newer homes that don't have a lot of peeling paint, the prep can be very minimal even as low as a couple or a few hundred dollars for the prep labor.

On a 100 year old home with 12 coats of peeling paint on it, then the prep costs can be very high and can easily exceed 50% of the job's labor cost.

A 2100 sq ft two story home could easily cost $1000 just for the labor to prep for the paint job. That number could climb too. Throw in lots of caullking  or window glazing, and you could be talking a couple or a few hundred dollars more for labor.

Painting that home with one coat of paint and a different color on the trim could run roughly $1000 or more just for labor. Add a second coat  and that could cost close to another $1000 for labor.

For paint, you may need 20 gallons of paint. You can pay from $30-$70 for a gallon of good quality exterior paint. The manufacturer of the paint should be specified in any painting contract. Otherwise, the contractor could bid at a Sherwin-Williams $60 per gallon paint and then paint the house with $35 Valspar and pocket the difference. $25 dollars per gallon times 20 gallons? That's a pretty penny too.

That was the long answer to your question. The short answer is $2000 to $4000 and up, depending upon the amount of prep, the number of coats, the amount of trim, and the paint used.


You have to put your self in the shoes of a business that is in business to turn a profit of some sort. All businesses have different overhead which in turn decides what their bottom line would be on their services. I personally would not go with an unlicensed professional for this type of install. You are messing with gas, venting issues, electrical wiring{electric water heater} and updated code issues such as a drain pan and tempature and relief drain lines for heaters that currently do not have them. I do agree that there are some companies that are way out of line for their installs but most of these companies are the really big companies that have very high overheads  I would assume. Tank type water heaters have changed over the last several years and with these safety changes come bigger prices. The price of steel thanks to China is skyrocketing and tank type water heaters are made of steel. Most wholesale plumbing supply companies cannot match what the big box stores are selling at retail to consumers. I happen to think from research that heaters such as Rheem, Bradford White and AOSmith who have been in business forever make a better product than what you can buy in the big box outlets. You also have to take in consideration the location of the water heater that is being replaced. Is it in the house, basement, garage or attic. Most 40 and 50 gallon water heaters that are purchased in a plumbing wholesale store in Texas cost between 300-340 for a 6 year warranty heater with 6 year on parts and tank. Speaking of warranty. Most big box companies will take a least 24 hours to a week to get your warranty problem taken care of. Most reputable plumbing companies will give same day service if they installed the heater.

So lets break down a typical install at cost to a licensed plumber in Texas

Heater: $315, water shut off $6.50, water flex lines or unions to code $20, gas flex line and cut off to code $12, misc fittings $15, Total $368.50 Lets add a 35% profit which is some what low  for a business $129, Total 497.50

This doesnt  include permits, pan and drain or any venting issues. The vent must go from the heater to the outside of roof using double wall vent.

Cost of permit on average $60

Most plumbing companies allow for 3 hours of time for a water heater. This includes picking the new one up. Delivering out to house. Draining and removing old water heater. Hauling off old heater. Installing new heater up to code. Going down to city and pulling permit.

Average Labor charges for heater installs $400

That would make this install run without extras on any code issues $957.50

I just had a 50 gallon gas water heater installed in my house for $1200 but I needed a pan installed. I used a licensed plumber.




Todd said it best.

An itemized list / cost breakdown, more often than not is used against the contractor when it is shared with other builders who will then beat it.

Good contractors use good people, and good people cost more.  Just the cost of having the appropriate insurance / bond can be the difference between winning a job or losing it ot a 'lower bid'.

It is the rule of three; there is Good, Cheap and Fast.  You can have any two:  Good and Cheap, won't be Fast; Good and Fast, won't be Cheap;  Cheap and Fast, won't be Good!

When comparing bids, it isn't the cheapest or the 'nicest' person you should select.   You should understand why there is a large price difference (it shows there are gaps in your design program or what you have asked for specifically, which means there may be arguments later).  If most of the bids are in line, and one is way high or way low,  you want to know why before dismissing or selecting them.

A price-only decision almost always costs more in the long run. 

Good luck!

Upholstery Cleaning reviews in Raleigh


I think that their price is moderate. My experience with them was fine. I didn’t think the oriental rugs turned out quite as well as I had hoped. Ideally, they need to be sent to a special place to be cleaned, but the technician did try. Everything went well and there were no troubles. We would contact them again for carpet cleaning.
- Tom F.

We have two large, custom-made leather couches which we have owned for almost 20 years. They needed cleaning and some color touch up; we had not had the work done because we did not know what was possible. I learned about from Angie's List. The couches looked terrific; they cleaned, touched up and conditioned the leather. ...More They were pleasant and professional as they did the work. It was good to have the work done at our home. They were prompt and the price was very reasonable. I recommend them highly.
- Peyton C.

We were very happy with the service that we received from . We had a couch and two chairs cleaned. The couch had some food stains from a recent family gathering. I was pleasantly surprised that they were able to remove the stains leaving the upholstery looking brand new. The service tech was prompt and professional and left ...More the work space neat. it was nice to receive a follow up call from , the owner, , to ensure we were satisfied with the service. We will use again.
- Linda A.

gave a thorough explanation of the method which they use to clean versus other types of professional cleaning of mattresses, carpet, upholstered furniture so we would completely understand before he began. He patiently answered all of our questions.
did a great job cleaning the stains from some ...More spilled beverage on the mattress. He explained in detail what he was going to do prior to starting the work especially concerning the dark beverage stain. Afterward he gave instructions as to making certain that the mattress would be completely dry before sleeping on it. He showed how there was very little moisture in the mattress and it would not take very long to dry.
explained about the different stains on the sleep sofa which had not been cleaned for many years. He was able to remove stains that we never thought would come out after all the years of three kids eating while on the sofa.
went the extra mile when he noticed a dark stain on the carpet after we moved the sofa bed by cleaning the carpet stain too.
- Jon S.

I spoke with and he was the one who scheduled my work for me. The team of guys showed up to my home on-time (actually a few min early). They were very professional and I could tell they knew what they were doing. They respected my home and the items they were working on, and you could tell they were going to make sure I was satisfied ...More when they left. These guys were great! My rugs and couches look brand new, and you can't even tell they were in my home. We will definitely use these guys again in the future.
- Michelle A.

A crew of two arrived on the dot. Both very friendly, and got down to business. We are extremely pleased with the results. How nice to have dry carpet instead of a day or two of damp with furniture on plastic strips. Supposedly the use of dry chemicals prevents mold from growing in the pad caused by water used in steam/wet cleaning..
- Stephen L.

.I called and was able to make an appointment for the next day. came out and spent over an hour trying different cleaning solutions that would work on those particular stains. He also cleaned the seats of four other chairs with the set. He was cheerful and professional throughout the experience. Even ...More when I called him the day after that to tell him that the chairs had dried that the stained areas actually looked cleaner than the rest of the chair seat. He came out the next business day and treated both chairs again at no extra charge. Later that day the chairs dried and looked uniformly clean. I could not have been more pleased with the service and 's good-natured demeanor and professionalism.

They are very careful with their hoses but managed to bump in the furniture a couple of times with the steel cleaner head otherwise they did a nice job.
