How much is too much???

Posted by martin_606 (martin_606), 30 September 2003

I am in the South East and have set my prices per property.

E.g 190 for a two bedroom house, is that too much?

I am not carpet cleaning yet (course on nov 4th) I can see from a previous post that pricing is a hot topic.

Any feed back would be great

Hi Martin

Pricing is a contensious issue and can vary in different parts of the Country

May I ask ...if you are pricing by property ...your suggestion of 190.00 sound most reasonable... I have a fourteen bed mansion for you to do Roll Eyes When can you come?

Seriously Martin.. please please survey and qualify what you are doing before putting in a price.

Kind regards

I am in the north west.
I survey each job and try to calculate, will it be one day, or two. If I do a two day house clean, I charge 335. Iwill leave my cleaner on there for one day and spend one day myself to help her to complete.
I am doing one tomorrow, a four bed house one year old, oven needs cleaning and general cleaning, two cleaners including myself, windows inside and out but no carpets to be cleaned, 265, one day, paying my cleaner 50.
Did a two bedroom as you similar describe. 155 for cleaning and a discounted price of 75 for all carpets profesionally cleaned. left cleaner on job for 6 hours and paid her 35. I cleaned windows outside and carpets, took 3 hours for my labour and theres the profit.
Hope this helps.
I dont think your going far wrong at your pricing.
