"I called earlier in the week to set up an appointment and spoke with
. Not only was I quoted a great price, but I was able to get in appointment" in mere days which was really great. When he arrived, he was friendly, professional and polite. He went over what he would be doing and got right to work. He worked efficiently and my couch now looks and smells brand new! And, the proof is in the pudding, as he showed me all the dirt he was able to remove from the couch. It was nice to actually "see" the results of his hard work. He made sure to clean up thoroughly when he was done, too. We chatted off and on before he started and when he was on his way out and he could not have been nicer. I will absolutely be using this company in the future for all my upholstery and carpet cleaning needs. Thank you!

was on time and extremely professional when he came to the store. He had two furniture sets and two mattresses to clean. All items cleaned looked wonderful.

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.

You can save money cleaning upholstered furniture yourself, but you can also make things worse if you don't know what you're doing. Learn what to do and what not to do.

If your dog or cat has an accident on your sofa, trying to clean it up yourself can do more harm than good.

Dear Angie: How much should it cost to clean a leather couch that has moderate wear and soiling? ̶ Jane M., Providence, Rhode Island

Doing the laundry is a regular part of your routine, but what about your furniture?

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!

was initially hired to clean a sofa bed I purchased at a
Sonora Upholstery Cleaners Provider Name Locked
store. He was very pleasant and reasonably priced. He cleaned the couch in our garage. I set up a fan for him because it was pretty hot and he was very gracious. He did a great job with that funky smelling couch. It looked and smelled good after he cleaned it. We went ahead and had him clean the tiles while he was here. They've never looked so good! We'll definitely hire him again and recommend him to others.

On two different occasions (within the last two weeks) I have had to call
Sonora Upholstery Cleaners Provider Name Locked
for an "emergency" same day service. Both days they responded immediately and were at my house cleaning my carpet well before the end of the day. They are extremely professional and do a fabulous job getting up difficult messes. One mess was my poor dog who got sick on the carpet and the other was a red wine spill. This all happened in a rental house as well so it was even more important to me to get someone over to clean the carpet. They are great! I will keep their card handy in case I need anymore carpet cleaning in the future! Thank you

This experience was professional from start to finish. I received a call first thing in the morning alerting me to the ETA of the technician. Then he ACTUALLY arrived on time! Dusty, the technician, immediately instilled confidence as he was professional and very courteous. He looked at the furniture and gave a fair estimate for additional work that I had requested. He immediately began to work and was diligent, thorough, and very conscientious. I was ready to get rid of the couch, chaise & chair however after Dusty worked on it, I might actually hang on to it for a while longer! It looked and smelled new again! I have had several upholstery cleaners over the years & equal number of mishaps with folks so this was a pleasant experience all the way around!

Great! A two-man crew arrived. I appreciated their taking the time to talk with me before they began work and making sure they understood my needs and concerns. They were very flexible and able to change and add to my original request so that I was able to get exactly the results I wanted. Due to other work vehicles parked at the house, they had to run their hoses over the front lawn to gain access to the areas to be cleaned, and they made sure we knew before they started that there was a possibility that the heat from the hoses might damage the grass. In fact, no damage occurred, but I was impressed that they were making sure that we understood the risks. The cleaning was impeccable. They are my top choice for this type of work in the future.

when I found him on Angie's List. I had a small piece of carpet that needed to be cut out and patched, as well as my office carpets all cleaned. It was 2 different visits as the repair/installers were different from the cleaners. Both were excellent, courteous and polite. Pricing was more than fair and offered Saturday appointments to make things easier. I strongly recommend this company.
