Fee for Move In Move Out Cleaning

I've been cleaning houses for 3 months now, but to pick up more business I passed out flyers to all of the realtor offices around town to do make ready move in or out homes. I have no idea how to charge for those and the last thing I want is to be underpaid and overworked. My mom suggested a certain amount per square foot. What should I go by?

I can't provide a fee amount as you did not provide your location, however, as you are just starting out in your business, I offer this advice-it will seem just more work, however, I guarantee that it will enhance your professional reputation and business.

I caution you not to set any fee until you have considered these basics. BEFORE any job or service, even if your client is a relative, friend, etc., you should protect yourself:

*Complete a thorough and detailed "walk-thru" to see EXACTLY WHAT YOUR CLIENT EXPECTS AND DEMANDS.

*Decide on a fee-per hour, service type, etc.

*Develop a cleaning, etc., fee contract covering what your client expects re service (as thorough as possible) and exactly what you expect to do to complete the job. Your client and you must sign any contract before service. You can find printable simple contracts online and in Microsoft Word.

*State in the contract exactly what you will do if you find "other work" in your service that your client and you have NOT agreed to-such as: extra work you had not anticipated or more than expected work (tons of laundry, more than agreed cleaning, etc.). Will you simply list the problems and not complete them or contact your client re what she/he wants you to do, etc.?

*This list is only the basics in deciding service and fees but is crucial if you want to be paid for what you will do.

Always Remember-

Work for free or work for full price; never work for nothing!
