You can always "Power vacuum" the upholstery.
Truth is Genny came along and plugged it in.....
So true, that's why you need a canister. I use the proteam wetdry as I can use it to suck up fuzzies and edge after VLM cleaning. Even with the beater bar I prefer the oreck for prevac.
That being said, my favorite prevac is the maid crew coming through before me.
They never vacuum well
And they never edge
Don’t bother saying the ones where you live are different
Totally true but I still knock $10 off per room on my motels and hotels if they prevac, I got sick of watching their eyes glaze over trying to explain the importance of prevaccing as part of justifying my price... just mix it strong and rinse most of it out
I started charging my complexes $25 if it wasn't vacd well.
One complex I just raised it to $50 because they can't figure out how to do it half way decent.
Its always a battle.
I believe there is a vacuuming certification class and patch you can wear to prove you're a professional.
Explain it to those maids that it takes 6 weeks of training to get it.
Mikey has his certification logo right on his truck.
There is probably a market for a vacuum only service. Go in with a backpack vac and do all the high dusting, do the edges, then take a pile lifter and do the traffic areas. I have a ton of condo buildings when you move the fire doors, they haven't been vacuumed for years. I see a lot of maid services using flat floor tools only, no beater bar.
