    and 1 house to clean on thursday....

    Lol.... will 25ltr barrels x 5 be enough ?

    am going to spend loads of time and make my customers happy and offer a 100% service

    6 are regular cleans

    and 1 is a off clean which is £7.00

    in total all 7 houses add up to 38.00 which isnt to bad.... should take me 2 hours normally.... but this will take me 3 hours cos im newbie... and not really good with the pole yet etc got no speed at all yet... so gotta start picking up

    which works out just over 5 pound per house....

    am going to put my prices up now... and go for 6-8 pound per hour :)

    am going low.. cos i dont want to be refused :D lol

    but i will be strong now lol

    Im from Northern Ireland. Never cleaned windows before but I was thinking maybe of going on a course if necessary. I want to do it right. I would do both traditional and WFP. I run a shop at the moment but fancy a change and there seems better money in windows. Hope you do well.

    I think the question of are you going to low depends on the house and the work that is involved. I wouldn't suggest using set prices like that, because some houses do have more or less windows that others. We charge based on the number of windows, and each windows is charged differently based on its size and number of panes.

    on average mate you should charge around a £1 for say bedroom and living room windows side windows like the landing/hallway charge around half for them.

    connys depends how big but from fiver upwards.

    remember pal you dont wanna be chasing your ass doing 100s and 100s of houses for small fees better to have half and get more coin pal;)
