Smile Another New Cleaner

Hi Everyone!

I've just come across this site and i think it's brilliant!

My name's Lucy and I've been cleaning homes for about a year now, i was with an agency for 8 months then decided I could make more money on my own so I chose an area in Surrey, advertised my business by dropping leaflets etc and became fully booked in less than a month. Im now thinking about expanding and hirring in some cleaners to start my own agency and watch the money roll in!

Can't wait to get some great advice and chat to people in the same industry.

Lucy

Hi Everyone, thanks for the warm welcome

Hi Daeana, I charge £10ph for weekly regular cleans and £12ph for spring cleans. I charge by the hour so it depends on how long it would take to get around a whole house. A 3 bed, 2 bath, 2 reception room house would probably take around 4 hours a week for a thorough clean, but it also depends on how much of the house the client wants cleaned. One of my clients has a seven bed house which i only do 3 hours as there are only 2 people living there. I also do ironing so that takes up time to.
Hope this helps and best of luck with your business

I put an advert in the local shops and dropped leaflets through doors, I think my main source of advertisment is word of mouth. I get loads of calls from friends and family of clients.
