    [SIZE=medium]Hi Wils23, [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]Cleaning Windows, combined Pricing, is all that’s really too this game; the more you know about both. and how to work the two together the more money you will make.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]How many jobs on average do you expect to clean per hour? Some cleaners set an hourly rate of £20 through to £60 or even more. It’s up to you to set your own figure. [/SIZE]

    How much do you want to earn an hour - how long do you think the job will take?

    There's a book called "winning at gutter & conservatory cleaning"

    This seems to be a popular topic at the mo, I have no idea about pricing, I'll be honest I like my 5x table when I comes to pricing, I went through a stage were I liked the number 15 lol

    My strategy is £1 per window, 50p for small ones, £2 for big ones, then I add or subtract from the total based on a few factors like access, frequency, etc. Insides is the same unless there's loads of stuff on the windowledges in which case I add a few quid on. One thing I would say, though, is find out how often they want them cleaned first - if you quote a house at 6 quid and then find out its only once every 3 months, then you're buggered. If its every 3 months I'd charge 15 and say due to how much dirt will build up over 3 months, etc. (not exact figures there but you get the idea.)
