  • when did you start window cleaning?
    2008
  1. Was hoping someone would start a thread specifically discussing commercial prices including your success i.e. you got it for X amount or you didn't get it for X amount. I was recently asked to price a builders clean for Tapi Carpets I thought I would go first. The builder/hand over guy wanted the internal & external windows cleaned including the glass canopy that you can see in the picture. On the inside windows he asked for the frames to be cleaned too, these frames can be seen in the picture and they are around 7" deep all around. I quoted him for a one off clean at £200 I took into account travel, time and materials as the inside windows needed to be cleaned by hand with either ladders or microfibre pole. All exterior cleaning to be cleaned by water fed pole. He basically laughed and said he wanted it done for no more than £70 I backed off and left him to it. My question for this post would be - What would you have charged?
  2. I have five jobs in the Hornchurch area (all in one road) that I would like to sell. Three of the jobs are cleaned six weekly, one is cleaned every two weeks and one is every four weeks (could probably change her to two weeks also) The total amount is just over £195 every six weeks and the customers pay on the day of the clean. Ive had these customers for over six years and they know me very well. I have full names and phone numbers so you can book work in night before. My asking Price is £600 they are due to be cleaned now is I can clean alongside buyer. All jobs are £25.00 apart from one which is £45.00 as we wipe over he’s inside windows with a cloth with deionised water. They are cleaned by Reach and Wash. Feel free to P.M. if you're interested.

    Great news! They didn’t tell me that when I got mine.. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  4. Yell.com

    I have a Yell premium listing and I can’t wait to cancel it. As previously said - They are too salesman and promise the earth. I’ve had one job from it this year (yesterday) and I have it all set up correctly. As said - Get a site and get it optimised for Google’s search engine.

  7. So this happened today. Panic.

    When this happens to me I take the brush of my gardiner pole and slide it up inside the gutter pole... bit rude but it works [emoji13] Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  8. Frequency

    Six weekly here, originally I was eight weekly but like others have said you need more work. I tell customers six is the sweet spot. four is too regular and eight is too far away. I remember when I changed, only a handful even noticed! Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
