I've recently set up as a domestic cleaner. Today i received my first regular enquiry. And it's a biggie! A lady wants an estimate of how much i would charge to clean her five bedroom house on a weekly basis. She has said I'm able to visit first if i wish.
I have specifically stated in all my advertisements that I can only work in my local surrounding towns. Unfortunately, this lady's house is slightly outwith this circle. I don't drive so it would mean having to get on a train for half an hour, which would cost me £5 return ticket.
I want to say yes soooo badly because 1) this is my first potential customer! and 2) it's a big job.
I'm stil fairly new to all this and didn't expect to get landed with such a big house so soon. So to all you cleaners, or employers of cleaners, how many hours would i say it would take me to clean her house? I have an hourly rate of £8. Many thanks.
