Chemicals as % of Sale

Posted by Cleanndry (John Byrne - Clean-N-Dry), 8 March 2004
Hello everyone,

Im trying to do some forcasting for my business and was wondering what is the average % of Chemical Sale that I can attribute to the overall cost of a Job.

For example if I was to buy 100 worth of Prochem CarpetClean XL I could expect it to cover me for  Huh amount of work.  Im sure there are a number of variables but I would be interested in seeing a % figure

isnt xl for truckmounts Huh i use prochem chemicals with a prochem steameasy multi pro, extraction pro, fibre and fab rinse etc and i reckon if i do a 100 job the chemicals would cost 2 or 3 quid at the most. it does get more expensive when you start to use protectors so i guess that might have an affect on your figures.
