Recommended Posts

Started canvasing, and wondering how many houses per hour/day is doable, yes i know im a newbie so will be slower then experienced cleaners, and yes Im aware quality is better then numbers, but curious. as been chatting to local window cleaner who does my street, He also does other towns and says his (lad) ie employee does 106 per day, (didn't say is was houses bungalows or what). but given he was doing a 3 bed cemi at the time, done trad, i know most houses are diff with window sizes and amount of windows, but to take an average size terrist 2 up and 2 down how many is reasonable once up to speed please?

Are you an undercover HMRC investigator? If you are, I do 3 houses per day.

If he’s claiming that, he’s talking ****, that’d be a house every 4-5mins for 8 hours straight 😂 He might do 106 a week, or earn £106.00. 

Varies a lot for me, I have a round where I can do 17-20 in a day, all £15-£20jobs But then I have a round due, next week actually, where it takes two days, the smallest job there is £22.00, then

Yeh just as I thought mate, if he had said 20-30 I'd poss believe him but was like there isnt enough time in the day to do that given the early nights etc, even if doing a really **** job, but had to ask as I havnt the experience yet to know roughly how may is poss

Ask as many questions as you wish mate, 

You'll always get a response

 Varies a lot for me, I have a round where I can do 17-20 in a day, all £15-£20jobs

But then I have a round due, next week actually, where it takes two days, the smallest job there is £22.00, then a few £25s to £35s, then a couple of £45s and even a big £65 house as well. So on those days I might on do 6 or 7.
 

Number of houses is not important at all, it’s hourly rate/day rate that is. My best ever domestic earning day I only did 3 jobs. 2 big gutter clear & cleans on two houses then a big-ish window clean on another house.

I'm invoking my right to remain silent.

At moment I do about 12 houses a day. All different sizes but no bigger than 5 bedroom detached. 12 for me is the figure I like to work around, when I start giving myself 15 houses a day for some reason I feel pressurised for the first 14 😂😂. But I also work the weekends doing Conny roofs and gutter cleans with skyvacs, so I try not to give myself anymore than 5-6 hours physical work Monday - Friday. What I also think people don't understand from the outside is they can say "wow you only work 6 hours".....this is not the case as sometimes can be getting messages from customers at 11pm, chasing payments, quoting, researching, buying gear, replacing filters and sorting van out etc etc. Yes it's a great job but don't be fooled by just thinking it's 5-6 hours....physical yes but if you include everything it's not .

The question ‘how many in a day?’ is simply to vague.

You could be cleaning small bungalows or enormous mansions.

I have one day where I only clean 3 houses. All massive detached, and all 3 are £80 each.

The question needs to be more specific

Why would this matter, we all know that all users of the forum are honest upstanding members of the community who have nothing to hide from the tax man 👍

Plus 6 hrs of window cleaning is not equivalent to 6hrs of sitting around working on a computer.

I think this argument is a double edged sword. I have always been an outside, prefer to work physical type of guy. I would hate to work 6 hours behind a computer and would find it harder than 6 hours physical work.

I've done both and physical work outside is obviously more tiring and the ability to do it over very long period, years, is hard on the body. It is however far less stressful and healthier, as long as you can handle the temperature variations of summer and winter work.
