3 houses an hour?? That's going well. I find WFP to be a lot quicker than traditional. The thing is, I would suggest you charge more than £8 for WFP cleaning as you have the cost of the initial outlay to recoup and the cost of producing water. In my area I charge between £10 and £15 for a 3 bed house. What's your compe***ion like locally???

It also depends on your priorities. I use wfp, but am not especially fast. Having said that, i am a lot faster now than when i started 2.5 years ago, and i do have a few areas where i can make £40+ per hour. I charge £10-12 for an average sized (2-3 bed) semi. But if you look in the video's section, there is a guy there, and he doesnt look that young, doing traditional window cleaning at a speed that will make your eyes water!.

Once you are used to the system you will be able to do double the amount of work in the same time as you wolud have trad, you should be aiming for around £40 per hour minimum with a wfp for residential anyway, commercialis different you i aim for at least double that minimum

They slow down for a video,having done most of my round with ladders for years and then converting them over to wfp I know how much quicker it is for me,I been able to take on more customers without dropping quality of work, with backpacks its handy to have a fold up trolley to save your back.

Mate, there are cleaners nearby to me that charge £18 per house so a tenner isn't so bad. What part of the country are you in???

Same here in the west of Scotland, about £1 a window is about average in my area. It varies across the country, but so does the cost of living, a window cleaner in London may charge £15 for what I might charge £5 but there rent and all that stuff will be three times dearer as well, so not really making allot more money when you take that into consideration.

 

That's why I think an on-line forum is probably not the place for a 'how much should I charge?' post, everyone's answers are going to be different.
