RV Cleaning only
#1
PI have cleaned residential and commercial carpet for years. I have been out of the field for a few years. I am considering jumping back in as a RV Cleaning specialist. I will have the right equipment to easily do RV carpets, upholstery, leather, and ozone.
The equipment I am considering using is a step dad, step son, Cross-American Jaguar Cub, vapor Rino vapor steamer and a Honda generater. I would charge something like $15 -$25 per LF (outside bumper to bumper.) I would be known for excellent quality of work, great customer service, no add on' and I'll do all of my own work.  Also I think I could get referials from other cleaners that dislike RV cleaning.
What do you think? Good idea? Bad idea? Any other equipment that would make my life easier and do the best possible job ? I haven't quit my day job yet.

I've done a few RV but not enough to be an expert so take what I say with a grain of salt.  At $15 to $25 linear foot a 35' RV is going to be $525 to $875 cost to customer.  On most RV's I've done there's not been that much carpet to clean. Very fast to do.  Upholstery wise, same thing very fast to clean. I do realize that when leather comes into play the price goes up but the ones I've done didn't have any leather.  I spent maybe an hour total cleaning both carpet and upholstery.  At least for me, and I'm on the cheapskate side of the scale, if I was the customer I'm not paying you $525 for an hours work and only get the carpet/upholstery cleaned.  I'm guessing you are going to have to add value by doing windows, wiping walls, etc.   Maybe add washing/waxing the outside for more $$$.

Again, I'm not a veteran/expert and I've also not done those $400K RV mansions so perhaps those might be worth your price scale.

I'm interested in knowing what you find out. hatsoff

(08-30-2016, 09:29 PM)I plan on doing an excellent job, I would clean the carpet and non carpeted flooring, and all upholstery including matresses. Back in the OP days I called myself a "Berber Carpet Cleaning Specialist" (thanks For the idea John G.) I did a ton of Berber carpet and charged a premium. People gladly paid it because most have had poor results with other cleaners. Reading RV forums, I see a lot of RV owners are having problems getting excellent carpet cleaning. The $875 high price will include walls and Ozone and windows. LBarry-QDCC Wrote: I've done a few RV but not enough to be an expert so take what I say with a grain of salt.  At $15 to $25 linear foot a 35' RV is going to be $525 to $875 cost to customer.  On most RV's I've done there's not been that much carpet to clean.
