What is the square footage price to shampoo carpet in the Northeast? As well as strip/finish a tile floor? Should we combine the prices or list them separately?


This may fall anywhere between 6 cents and 30 cents a sq. ft. for carpet cleaning and 30 cents to 1.50 for strip and finish. The exact price in each case depends on many variables. There is no magic number. Sorry.
I suggest you visit our archives under bidding and estimating and hard floor care for more info. We have answered this question many times before.
No. I would not combine these costs in my bid.
