    So I spent yesterday doing a builders clean on a new extension at a local hotel.

    13 Ground floor windows like this with the bars covering them and two more floors of windows that just needed WFP. 39 windows total.

    The downstairs was a PITA due to being literally covered in mortar as shown in the pics. The upper levels no issue.

    I put in a price of £180 and almost had my hand bitten off. Took me 5 hours to do so I figured £30 per hour plus £30 for costs (fuel, replacement applicator sleeve etc)

    Now it has been said on here before that builders wont pay out good money for builders cleans but I have never found that to be the case. I have always found good money in builders cleans so don't really know why so many turn them down. Sure it is propper graft compared to a maintanance clean but we have to work sometimes ;)

    Hi Green, read your interesting post about how to get commercial shop work via taking the building front pic and using it within a quote! Will be doing that for sure.

    How do you go about getting builders work like this?is there any little tricks that make it more likely to go ahead? Thanks.

    go to the local pub chris, speak to builder/builders (buy him a pint).
    if they do refurbishments of a decent size then they will arrange cleaning at the end.
    Although this will be total cleaning, clean units, hover and or wash all floors, maybe the windows but usually just general cleaning.
    greens price is about what i say and pass it on to someone i know.
