As much as I can get away with as it's not as simple as just charging a flat rate per sqr metre.
You also need to take into consideration the following when pricing any job up.
Travel & Fuel costs
Plant fuel costs - hire costs (if need be)
Methods/chems to be used
Type of hard surfaces to be cleaned.
Access to the job
Access to an outside tap/standpipe
After treatments costs - callback to resand, applying selants etc
All of the above can add extra time/cost to the job.
Of course smurf, and for those reasons I don't go by square meter, rather, I go by how long it'll take and type/state of service...
I juts wondered how others priced, as if we all quote the way we do, the variances in price must be HUGE!
I tend to do a test patch for the customer so they can see the result. I also time how long the test patch takes and so I can work out the amount of time the job will take.
You also have to allow for clean up time too as on some jobs can be a nightmare if the water run off, soakaways and drainage is bad.
Yeah defo, nothing more annoying than bad drainage and tonnes of water everywhere
You can still use a set price per sqr metre as a rough base price then cost in the things I've mentioned separately if you wanted.
