After an exhaustive search of the net, and asking those who know, I have come to the conclusion (at least here in Baltimore, MD), that the going rate for house pressure washing is: $100 an hour, up to 3 hours...after which its on me. Basically, $300 is the top I would charge for a general house cleaning. Add-on's would be drive ways, side walks and so forth.
I'm pretty much in the beginning stage of this business, so I know you guys know way more than I do. Though I only dropped 16K to start this thing I think its money well spent. Spent the money on a new van (new to me anyway), pressure washer (Sunbrite rox), Insurance, bond, chems, tons of toys (X-Jet and so forth), Web site (was free...GF is a web designer, but having my web site posted on the top 10 search of Google/yahoo is priceless), and all kinds of toys.
Today, I did a two story house (friend who was crazy happy to get a free house wash, and was spastic happy with the wash itself...was filthy prior to the wash).
Tomorrow we hand out customized flyer's (only spent about $50 at Office Depot).
Cant tell you's how friggen happy I am to get away from the "work for an employer for what-ever and hour" mentality. Sorry, first business for me...lol!
Anyway... generally, what is the "per hour rate" or per square linear footage rate you guys charge in your area? Just trying to get an idea here.
Thanx for the info in advance.
