My recommendation based on how we charge similar jobs is to give the woman an hourly rate and tell her that you bill by the hour. FYI - we include travel time "to the job" as well as loading and un-loading time in the bill.

I charge just about every job by the hour. Not knowing the square footage, I could estimate a time to go on...but that's never in stone until you get into the nitty gritty of the actual cleaning.

Have you considered doing a walkthrough to evaluate it? Email is only so good when you are talking about making an estimate.

Let us know how it goes!
