"Would not use this vendor again. He promptly arrived and performed the service. However, i could still see the dirt on the couch. I had him come back and redo" the couch and then after the 2nd time I could still see the dirt. I then borrowed a friends machine and cleaned it a third time. Next time, I will purchase a machine and clean these item myself. Would not reccommend this vendor.

"Individual was very professional, came on time and worked hard until job was done.Final cost was more than quoted on phone because stains wouldn't come out," but wasn't very expensive anyway. Sofa had never been properly cleaned for 5 years.

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.

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!

First, we never got an accurate estimate. We were told it woudl cost $3/square foot to clean the rugs, but we didn't know how big our rugs were (he told us they would be measured when they got to the facility). We didn't get a written estimate of completion, we were told verbally that it woudl be difficult to get them back in 2 weeks as we wanted. We were flexible about that, but called once in June, once in
New Orleans Upholstery Cleaners Provider Name Locked
, and once in August to see when they would be returned and were told the chair wasn't ready because it needed so much work. We didn't get our rugs back until Nov 10th after four failed promises on a specific delivery date and time. Starting in September, we called weekly, and our calls would be returned every 4th-5th try. We heard every story int he book, warehouse damage, delivery truck wrecked, fired employees, big job out of town. We eventually were told that our rugs weren't labelled and we had to comb through digital photos to identify which were ours. I was told that there were many families in our situation, and then belittled by identifying how much their rugs were worth compared to ours and further insulted by calling our rugs Lowe's/Home Depot purchases when in fact they are hand hooked wool pieces of high quality. When they were returned finally, one rug was discolored and threadbare, and we were told it was due to insect damage, though we had no such infestation. All three rugs, but particularly the largest, had such an intense chemical smell that a guest had her first asthma attack in a year immediately upon entering the house. He wanted to charge us $800 for the service, which was laughable considering that it took 2 weeks after threatening a lawsuit and filing an affidavit with law enforcement stating that the rugs and chair were were stolen to get them back, and he was an hour and a half late for that promised delivery time as well. It seems to be a one man operation and he is clearly in over his head, a pathological liar, an addict, or some component of all three, because though he had many excuses, none could truly explain how bad the service was. It felt like our rugs were being held ransom and they weren't cleaned well. The whole experience was awful, the worst I've ever had, and now I have to deal with an even worse chemical smell than the pet odor they were sent off with.

I was impressed at first with this company. They responded quickly when we called and gave us an itemized estimate. They came on time to clean the air ducts. It was messy work. After it was over, I noticed black smudges all over the walls and ceilings. They also took one rug, some chairs, and drapes to clean at their facility. They said they would bring them back a week later. I had to call
New Orleans Upholstery Cleaners Provider Name Locked
to find out what time they were coming. He said the rug wasn't dry, so it would be another few days. I called several days later and he said he couldn't bring them back until it stopped raining. They apparently don't have a vehicle with a closed top. On the first sunny day, he said he couldn't come b/c he had a sick family member. Then, his vehicle broke down. Then, he stopped returning our calls. Eventually, we threatened to call the police b/c we had pre-paid for the work (actually, the roofer who caused the soot incident paid for this work) and they wouldn't return our calls or our stuff. Two and a half weeks after they were supposed to be finished, they brought the stuff back. The drapes were wrinkled. The rug was still black and the chairs were still ruined.
