"They were to show up 1/28/15 between 10-11am. They were a no call no show. I called them & rescheduled for 1/29/15 between 10-11 am. & at 10:45 they called" & told me they could not perform the service. Overall = Not Happy & unsure about using Angie's List too.

"He is very rigid. I don't understand why he couldn't clean on piece of furniture as opposed to three in the same amount of time. His customer service skills" are lacking. Sometimes if you want business you have to bend a little bit.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

We’ve used them for years! They came in on time and on budget. They do a good job. They cleaned a sectional couch with pillows and applied scotch-guard. They do a thorough job and do the work relatively quickly. I would recommend them to anybody!

Clifton Park Upholstery Cleaners Provider Name Locked
is so meticulous. He does all the cleaning by hand. Starting with applying the solution and rubbing that in by hand. Then he goes back using a power wand and then finishing with a clean towel, rubbing each area thoroughly. His prices for both window cleaning and upholstery cleaning are reasonable. The upholstery looks great and it was totally dry before he left.

Great. They returned my initial appointment request quickly via Angie's List email. They penciled me in for a week later and asked me to get back with them to provide more details. I'm swamped, I neglected to get back to them until the day before the visit (my bad) and their schedule had started to get squeezed. They did everything they could to work me in that day, bumping me to the afternoon to get it done (else wait a week). One guy,

I think, came by himself and was later joined by another guy. For a number of reasons, the job was bigger than anticipated and they just rolled with it. Were here until about 6pm to get it done. I offered them the opportunity to adjust the price, they declined said it was fine. For one thing, the couch deal was for a 7' couch and ours turned out to be 11' :) And our couch had been through the ringer, having sustained us through 3 kids (the early years) and a number of pets.
I'm normally much more "on it" than I was in this case and was appreciative of the fact that for once, I wasn't and it still worked out because these guys were so cooperative. I can't really comment on price as I didn't shop around. I later saw that (and it's really in the name) it's an ecologically conscious company which is great although let's be clear, I still go with the cheapest typically for these sorts of things. So I'm guessing maybe there is a slight pricing premium, but it seemed very fair and they were great. I'll recommend them highly.

Unbelievable!!! This is amazing stuff!!!! All you have to do is use their OdorWizard to get detailed instructions on how to permanently eliminate your specific odor problem. The key is to follow the instructions EXACTLY!!
I decided to try this product because it is all natural and safe for animals & humans(especially ones sensitive to harsh chemicals), to my surprise it worked better than I thought it would. I did have to treat some areas more than once, but no odor has returned and it has been almost a year since I eliminated the cat urine odor on my wood sub floor.
I have 3 cats & 2 dogs who only have accidents on the carpet.....the tile floor stays totally clean(wish it was the other way around). I now use

to eliminate new odors caused by pet messes.
An added bonus is that
Clifton Park Upholstery Cleaners Provider Name Locked
actually lifts the stains as well!!!! It is not sold as a stain remover and the company makes no claims in this area. I'm just letting you know that it has an added benefit. It may seem expensive, but my original 16oz bottle still has about 4oz left in it and I purchased it almost a year ago.....and I use the stuff all the time.
This is one of those rare finds that sounds too good to be true, but really is!!!! I have no relation to the company but am now a customer for life!!!

They are very professional and curteous. They make sure you are satisfied with their work. A couple of pieces of the sectional dried with some streaks that weren't visible or obvious when wet. They came back to take a look, went over it again and blow dried it to make sure it would not re-appear. Great service!

It was excellent. They were very flexible. Didn't charge me for cleaning all the different pieces. Sent one technician, the owner. The owner and his wife were very easy to work with and extremely responsible. I have recommended them to others!

My experience was okay. They did their job well. It was during the holidays. They did not want to do the work that day we had scheduled. They tried to negotiate out of it. I also felt the price was too much for my couch.

It was fine, but I did have to ask them to come back. The initial visit they did not have any hot water, so it didn’t look like the carpet was clean. After the second time there was not an extra charge. I did ask for a different technician, but the same technician came out.
