I was once told that if I got every job I quoted for, then I'm doing something wrong. There's a lot of truth in it.

Thinking estate agents might be a good move

They do a lot of work for landlords and always sort out the cleaning between tennants moving out and new ones in

Can charge business rates if landlords are paying for the service

i have been getting quite a few gutter jobs where theres nothing much in them. nontheless whether its an eggcup full or a bucket full i charge the same. and i can tell them confidently that NOW they are clean.

 

in the past i would "have a quick look" for free but thats the fools way cos no money would come my way if was as good as empty

 

i dont do it that way now. clear em out is the only option

My service costs include checking & clearing gutters, downspouts and water test when required to make sure they are free flowing. Sometimes I may find hardly anything in a gutter run but I also make sure I check the downspouts as many a time the bends are blocked. Also I have found quite a few that have been blocked from the bottom of the downpipes too. When gutter runs are shared with downspouts on another property after the customers guttering has been checked & cleared I advise the customer if next door needs doing aswell or not as may not solve their problem why their gutters keep overflowing.

It helps if you have the right kit for the job for sure.

Most of my jobs start off as one-off exterior property cleans including gutter clearing but they end up having the exterior of their homes cleaned every year or two. Likewise with pressure washing as customers also like to have their drives and patios cleaned aswell

 

I will be popping out later to do such a job :)

My mate does the pressure washing as a sideline as is a council grass cutter then charges them to go round occasionally to spray against weeds coming back with the councils gear

Very lucrative for him
