I typically do a fair amount of residential cleaning and have my price scheme sort of figured out. For example depending on the severity of the cleaning and the size of the property I typically do something along the lines of .10-.20 per sq. ft of surface area or 1$ per lineal ft up to 8ft. in height. However I've never done any flatwork jobs outside of the typical driveway and a buddy of mine who owns a few restaurants asked me to quote him a price. Keep in mind he isn't looking for a discount and hasn't quite committed to multiple locations but is certain he needs 1 location's parking lots cleaned. Its 14,500 sq ft. I'm not sure where I should be price wise on something like this. Also he's looking and kind of pushing another job on me which is repainting the lines of the parking lot. It doesn't seem like it would be all that difficult with one of the push carts with the spray paint can attached and/or airless sprayer (which i have already) but i'm worried that looks are deceiving and i might jump into something i'm not familiar with.
21" surface cleaner
Chemical: 10% SH out of a DS injection not sure of the exact ratio but its pretty close to the same results as spraying non-dilluted through a sprayer.
Overall appearance of the concrete is mild honestly, its got some grease here and there but i've done much worse driveways than this.
Average about 1000 sq ft. an hour
Neways, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Starting a new hood cleaning business in SPAIN!
I've got some business lined up. My question is to Start off with a small budget until it grows or goes bust. What should I buy? A gas pressure washer or a hot washer?
