offered an Angie's Big Deal, making the price right for us. The manager was easily reached and maintained close telephone contact throughout" the period leading up to and during the time the work was being done. An inspector came during the work to see how it was going. At all times everyone with this business was very friendly and helpful in making sure we understood what they would do and then did. The house was empty, and the crew readied it for sale. We had thought the carpets would have to be recleaned, but
left them bright and spiffy. I recommend this company without hesitation, and will be hiring them again.

-Gerald H.

"The chairs are only 2 years old. He said I would have to pay an additional $60 for deep cleaning. I wound up paying and said if I wanted Scotch Guard, I would need" to pay an additional $40, which I did not do. It only took him about 20-25 minutes to clean the chairs. I feel this is unfair. I even confirmed before purchased the Big Deal they could work on weekends, and then when I called them for scheduling, they said they couldn’t do weekends, but then ended up being able to come the following Sunday.

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.

Upholstery cleaning

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.

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.

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!

Upholstery Cleaning reviews in Santa Clara


They were lovely! Scheduling was great. They cleaned a sofa and carpet, and they did a good job! I thought it was a good deal.
- Juli H.

Pretty well. The carpets are old and stained, but they came out looking great. I'm disappointed that a few stains have resurfaced, but the areas looked good at the time.

did a great job. It was a little more expensive than I expected.
- Deana S.

Our family has had experience

NY before and their work is impeccable - Jerey is an expert & I recommend his comoany and its services highly.
- Edmund S.

I would never have believed all of the wine would have come out of the carpet and couch, and was amazed that not a spot remained on either. I have had them clean carpet before in my last house and the results were fantastic. This is a family owned business and are extremely responsive to my call and quickly came to my aid to extract the wine. I couldn't recommend them more.

Dry showed up at 10am instead of 9/9:30 (approx 30 min late). - Workmanship was very poor. The equipment created multiple new stains. The stains were circular and appeared to have come from where they placed their equipment. There was also overspray on some of our furniture and a large black smudge on the hallway wall. - Upon further investigation, we discovered that the equipment used was different than what we saw in the
Santa Clara Upholstery Cleaners Provider Name Locked
Dry video on Youtube. In fact, it resembled traditional steam cleaning wand - which
Santa Clara Upholstery Cleaners Provider Name Locked
Dry so proudly distinguishes themselves from.
- Carpet took 8 hours to dry, instead of the 2-4 hours that we were told on the phone. (
Santa Clara Upholstery Cleaners Provider Name Locked
Dry advertises 1-2 hours on their website).
- We called
Santa Clara Upholstery Cleaners Provider Name Locked
and explained that there were circular stains left by their equipment. The lady on the call was very hurried to get off the phone but said they would call on Monday to come by and clean the stains They didn’t call Monday, but instead sent a text at 4pm on Monday, saying the technician would be at our house Tues between 10-10:30am and asked if that was ok.
- We called
Santa Clara Upholstery Cleaners Provider Name Locked
shortly after they texted and got no one. We left a message and then called the
Santa Clara Upholstery Cleaners Provider Name Locked
Dry corporate office to share our concerns about the quality of work and process used. Corporate was minimally helpful. They explained that franchises were independently owned and that it sounded like
Santa Clara Upholstery Cleaners Provider Name Locked
was using “legacy equipment”. We requested that they help put us in touch with someone that uses the latest equipment to do the re-work. They reluctantly agreed to see what they could do.
- We called
Santa Clara Upholstery Cleaners Provider Name Locked
again and this time they picked up. We explained our frustration and said we weren’t
comfortable scheduling re-work until we were sure we would receive the best available

Dry process, as advertised.

- We then called our bank and cancelled payment on our check of $130.
- On Sat morning, we got a call (voicemail) from a man claiming to be

Santa Clara Upholstery Cleaners Provider Name Locked
. We agreed to pay $100 for the 3 rooms (not the 4th) but expressed our extreme frustration and that we planned to share that frustration publicly. The lawyer then threatened to go after our credit rating and file a complaint with the credit bureau to wreck our credit score. We said that was ridiculous and that we didn’t understand what any of this had to do with our credit. We said we could write a check right now for $100. The lawyer said “how are you going to write a check when you
Santa Clara Upholstery Cleaners Provider Name Locked
’t have an account?” We said we cancelled the check; it didn’t bounce. The lawyer said to go ahead and send check to
Santa Clara Upholstery Cleaners Provider Name Locked
’ business address. We said ok, but that we were done doing business with them.
- We then immediately placed the check in the mail.
- Thomas T.

They are fine. They will probably clean the grout in our bathroom, and we like them. We use them for cleaning our furniture and rugs as well. I don't think they are inexpensive, but they are a very quality company. We use them all the time.
- Edward D.

Called for early arrival, very polite, explained service, no mess. Very good rug cleaning, even raised carpet pile which felt softer under foot.
- Mary O.

Excellent service, they removed dog and small child stains. I highly recommend them.
