Carpet Cleaning Pricing



Carpet Cleaning Pricing
By Marcos Rivera

Many companies out there advertise extremely low rates when it comes to carpet cleaning. Cleaning companies that offer these incredibly low rates would never exist.

Let us assume the rate is $10 a room, and we are cleaning an average house with 3 bedrooms, a living room, a den, and a hallway. The total charge would be $50. This house would take us a total of 5 hours, an hour in driving time, and 4 hours of actually cleaning and set up and break down time. That comes to $10/hour.

With this scenario one might be able to fit 2 jobs into one day, for a total of $100 of revenue per day. Now let us look at the expenses.

For 5 hours of running the machine and driving time, that is about $15 in gas expense. For 2 houses in a day, that is $30 in gasoline expense. The next major expense is chemicals. The total amount of chemicals you use might come to around $10 in expense to you. Let us also take into consideration your depreciation on the machine and the van, oil changes on the machine and van, wiper blades for the van, and all the other little expenses that naturally come with a vehicle. You must spread these expenses out over time. Let us assume our depreciation expense per job comes to about $15.

Our total expenses for one day with two jobs are $80 and your revenues were $100. So the carpet cleaner that charges $10 a room and works a 10 hour day earns about $20 in profit. This example does not include a payment or insurance on their work van, or rent expense for their business facility.

How do these companies survive?

These companies survive by using bait and switch pricing. They offer a very low price to get into your home, and then they will add on extra charges while they are in your home. Some companies might charge extra for pre spray, or agitation. These components are basic elements of carpet cleaning and should not be considered an extra charge.

A legitimate carpet cleaning company must charge at least $30 to $40 a room in order to turn a small profit. So when you are pricing a carpet cleaning company, don't be fooled by low pricing!!!

    Winn’s Pro- I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

    I manage 16 luxury homes in Aspen, Colorado and would not go anywhere else for my carpet cleaning needs. On top of requiring very discreet and trustworthy services, our homeowners have specialty rugs and carpets which require unique care. Over the long relationship Ute Place has shared with Marty, there is not a problem Winn’s pro has not been able to handle for us. When he says, “call me any time”, he means it! Marty is always willing to help in emergency situations late in the day or over weekends and holidays and arrives on your doorstep quickly and with a smile. My homeowners are continually impressed with the “magic” Marty works on their carpets and rugs, always leaving them looking like new. I would, without hesitation, recommend Marty’s professional services to any client looking for a superior, friendly and flawless cleaning service.

    Thank you Winn’s Pro!

    Testimonial from Mason Morse Real Estate:This is to let you know that Marty Winn did an excellent job of cleaning our carpets. His service is unbeatable and the quality of his work is definitely first class.We had stains on our carpet that no other carpet cleaner was able to get out. The stains were set in and had been there for quite some time. Marty came to our office and said he did not care if we gave him the job or not; but he wanted to try and get the stains out. He not only got them out, his prices were excellent also.Marty came and cleaned our carpets and has followed up to make sure the stains have not returned.I highly recommend and trust Marty and Winn’s Pro Carpet Cleaning. He definitely is a professional and takes pride in his work.Thank you for all that you have done!Sincerely,Karen Scarberry/Office ManagerMason Morse Real Estate0290 Hwy 133Carbondale, CO. 81623

    Would I recommend Winn’s Pro Carpet Cleaning? You bet I would. Winn’s Pro Carpet Cleaning cleaned the carpets in the Chamber office, and when I came in the next day I thought I was in the wrong place! The difference was amazing. Great work and fast service, way to go Winn’s Pro Carpet Cleaning!
