First cleans.

I went to my second ever customer today who had been doing her own windows for a while. The frames had never been cleaned before so they were quite dirty and I wasn't happy with one window so I did it again. My question is, how long should I have spent on that house (3 bed new build detached) seeing as it was essentially a first clean and should I have charged her more, I charged her £8.

£8 seems cheap, that looks like a £12 on a maintenance clean house to me. As for charging more for first clean, it depends if you could get away with charging more, or would she dump you, leaving you with no foot in the door on the estate so to speak.

As long as it take would be my answer.

Charging £8 for that size house I'm guessing you will get loads of work too

I got a few new ones today..2 beds

1 window upstairs front and back and 1 downstairs + patio door/front door..5 minute job £7.50 so £8 is too low for that one

 

Did 1 today and got all the neighbours coming out

Maybe other windies think not worth it 7 now x £7.50 without moving car
