Mo, you know if there is 17 steps and you walk up then down 10 times thats 340 steps!....then you do two houses...680 and thats not counting all the work, bending, wanding, moving furniture, etc....but Im not counting or anything.

If I cant count on someone, they are dirt to me. especially if I was hung high like 8100 sf. %.5 hrs is a tough one.....thats about all im good for in one evening. I had my brother in law help me the other day and even with him not knowing a thing he was great help just to save steps.....on a flight of steps at two homes I would have been up and down them at least 20 times......I gave him 15 of the 20. Wink plus he could pull some hose and wrap it up while I collected. 4 bigger jobs made him valuable.

DP....That was funny right there!
Mo....Mr gets to vacation alot!


I would agree normally, but they did have good excuses (family death and illness), so I will let it ride for now. Now, if nobody shows tonight.....there will be another death in the family. I can fit a lot of things in a 210 gallon waste tank, just have to hack them up to fit through the hose and dump in some encap. Peace

Oh...when you said failed to show I took that as they just didnt show ...if they called then maybe a little more understanding. Actually even then I cut work thin when they start taking days off when its a part time gig....I pay good and they want the work.


Better order encap in small lots between now and the day of the deed.....a large purchase up front will leave a trail....talking about it in this forum wont! this is like talking to a therapist.

LOL, you guys are funny !!
I don't understand this at all though, why do you have to go up and down 10 times ??
When I work by myself, I would go up to measure and down to let them know the square footage and prices, then pull the hoses and spray the downstairs and stairs and upstairs, then go back down after I'm done spraying and pull the vac hoses bring it up and down to grab the carpet wand and stair wand and change the setting in the machine, go back up and started cleaning and work my way back down, that's it, that's 4 times up and down the stairs ?
I also will bring solvents and necessary spotters when I bring the wand upstairs to start cleaning.
