Feces removal

Hey guys,
How do you handle animal feces removal? I have a basement room that looks like it had a dog trapped in there for quite awhile so there are dog feces all over the carpet. You'd really need to move the debris in the room and remove the carpet to get it out. I bid $350, got approval sent to me for $25 . We are in negotiations now, they are up to $100. How do you guys bid this?

I bid what it will take to make $$$ , if they don't like it get someone else. Anytime me or someone working with has to suit up, the price goes up. Id do a poo covered room for tree fiddy if it was average size and it took 1hr to complete. Tell them

$350?

I presume there is a discount that will be subtracted?

"l x w room covered with biohazard ($3.16/sf including carpet, pad & tack), content manipulation of debris to a seperate room ($178.00), PPE usage with filter replacement ($58), 1 coat floor cleaning and encapsulant for sterilization ($4.10/sf) and odor control ($71/day at 3 day minimum)

I think that will tell you a true figure for your services. This is the Iowa rate figures for the estmating software.

Now get paid your worth. The service company will!!!

Sounds like a 5 Brothers job. They think you can just clean the waste around all the debris and it's taken care of. I am fighting another one just like this, only it's food [a lot of it] scattered throughout the kitchen, dining room, rear hallway, and 1/3 of the living room.

I keep telling them you cannot separate the food from the debris, since the debris is also covered with food. You have to remove everything in the area[s], in order to clean up the hazards.

Keep holding out or tell them to assign it to someone else. The job is worth more than $100.

Close, SG. Thanks for the advice guys. Fremont, I'll respond with your pricing and they can put it into their bid estimator and see what they say

I had looked into getting some bid estimation software, lots of options out there and wasn't sure which direction to go. Tried out a few. Any recommendations?

Thanks!

Please remind me again why you chose to pursue this business out of all the other businesses you could have opened?

Haggling over dog shlt. How is this even on a contractor forum?

You are correct. No money to be made here. Move along.
