Baseboards

Do you include baseboards in your basic cleaning package?
why or why not
also, if you do not how much extra do you charge?

I am trying to pull together some pricing and want to get some tips from those who may have already been through it

Personally we have a Silver Plan and a Gold Plan.... at one time we had 3+ plans but not anymore.

Silver = basic cleaning

Gold = basic cleaning + cobwebs + ceiling fans + dust blinds + wipe window sills + wash baseboards

I'd say it is up to you. I found that we can make more profit by doing it this way.

Baseboards

We offer general cleaning and deep cleaning. With the general cleaning package we dust the baseboards with the deep cleaning package we dust and damp wipe the baseboards.

In architecture, a baseboard (also called skirting board, skirting, mopboard, floor molding, as well as base molding) is a (generally wooden) board covering the lowest part of an interior wall. Its purpose is to cover the joint between the wall surface and the floor.
It covers the uneven edge of flooring next to the wall; protects the wall from kicks, abrasion, and furniture; and can serve as a decorative molding.
At its simplest, baseboard consists of a simple plank nailed, screwed or glued to the wall; however, particularly in older houses, it can be made up of a number of mouldings for decoration.
Plastic baseboard comes in various plastic compounds, the most common of which is UPVC. It is usually available in white or a flexible version in several colors and is usually glued to the wall. Vinyl baseboard is glued with adhesive and can be difficult to remove or to replace. It has a long lifespan, which can mean lower maintenance.
Wooden baseboard can be available in untreated, lacquered or prepainted versions. Prepainted baseboards can be made from a single piece or finger jointed wood, often softwoods, while hardwoods are either lacquered, or raw for staining and made from a single piece of wood.
Radiators are sometimes installed inside or in front of baseboards (baseboard radiators). These radiators rely on hot water as their heat source.
A baseboard differs from a wainscot; a wainscot typically covers from the floor to around 1-1.5m high (waist or chest height), whereas a baseboard is typically just up to 0.2m high (ankle height).
