I totally get that. But, then when a tennant complains, who are they going to blame. Rather pass than deal with someone who has already moved in. They will not be satisfied with anything but new.When you do apartments, rentals and section 8’s, leave your bulletin board personality at home. Just do what they want.
Or don’t do the work.
Worse thing you can do is be that annoying know-it-all.
you actually think i would worry about that? LOL! I may lay it back, but , crawl around on it to reinstall/! NO WAY JOSE!With that much urine it should be flexible as an old blanket. Getting it to re-attach to the rusted/rotted tackless though may be another thing all together.
yes to all of that,If this customer is very valuable to you, and they do not make unreasonable complaints and claims against you, do your best.
If not, there are a few red flags in a situation like this:
1. You aren't responsible for the deterioration of the carpet. They might decide that you are....
2. Cleaning often makes pet odors worse. Something that contaminated could require multiple trips and a lot of product to get under control. Are they willing to pay for extra trips and treatment, or do they want all this done for a low cleaning price?
3. The "just clean it" attitude (assuming that is how they worded it) just shows that they really aren't concerned about your expertise, only making a problem that they have go away cheaply, no matter how expensive it might be for you to make them happy.
There are better ways to make money
