77 bucks per floor? More details please.
Each floor takes about 10 minutes more or less. The janitorial staff vacuumed for me. I arrive with 7-2.5 gallon jugs premixed. Take the machine up the elevator to the top floor, plug it in and start cleaning. Used 10 pads which are in the wash right now. 1-2.5 gallon jug will do 4 hallways.

That does sound nice.

I know it's always a mistake to put pics up here but doing a 31 story highrise condo building today. Using my Phoenix, Harvard oxy encap, tops spotter and microfiber pads. The tops spotter works great on all the drips and tracked in stuff. 6 hours, including my drive time and prep. $2400.

Looks great, what we all know is lighting and shadows.

So maybe a picture may be less flattering then what we really see.

And arm chair Bob has an opinion.

I think it looks great.

Do you have the fortitude to go back and stand in that exact spot and take a picture 1 week from now?
I am in that building a couple of times a month doing spotting or private suites. This is the third time I have encapped the entire building. Other than the spots, the carpets generally stay in good condition.

All padder hacks think it looks great
Looks are all that matter
Looks after a month.
Smell the next day/ week
Customer satisfaction.
Profit margins.
Ease of training.
Ease of acquiring and maintaining equipment.
Chem usage.

yeah I get it, you take pride in knowing you removed more soil and learning to master a new method scares you.
You may have to buy a second (used) washer and drier..
You may have to admit Satan was right, just like Saiger did.
You may get another hernia lifting it .


But your customers will LOVE it.

So will Brady, once you get the F out of his way.

They don't have 30 story buildings where Marty lives.
We don't have them here neither.

But this is better in large commercial accounts especially ones where you can't run a hose, or the hose run is so long anything over 300 ft your 🚛 mount is useless.

how different would this job have been with a buffer instead same chemicals ect
You could use a 175 but it would probably take longer an might not be as effective. You have to swing the machine back and forth and manually prespray in front of it. The Phoenix moves just like a lawnmower. Sprays ahead of itself and is simple to reload with multiple, prefilled 2.5 gallon jugs.
