Pricing: What's it cost to clean?

Below is a basic outline of my rates. These can change slightly depending on specific conditions that might increase or decrease the price, but the following is a good estimate. I suggest you do a CTRL+F search of what you are specifically looking for if you don't wish to see all my various estimates.
NOTE: ALL PRICINGS FOR ANY JOB I DO ARE AGREED UPON PRIOR TO STARTING THE JOB. (In other words, if you aren't happy with a price, we can talk.)

Minimum Charge
I do not charge extra for travel within a 30-minute to 1-hour drive from my office in San Francisco. However, I have a minimum charge of $65.00 to make small unprofitable jobs profitable. This covers the fixed costs required in dispatching the wash rig.

I have never had a commercial customer question me when I use their water for the job, but residential customers often complain about you using their water. This is often because they perceive the 500 to 1,000 gallons of water being used on an average housecleaning job to be very expensive. You need to check the water rates for your area. In most areas of the U.S. (yes, that includes the Bay Area) water cost is about 50 cents to $3.00 per thousand gallons. For those of us that failed math in high school that equals a marginal extra charge.

Tree Removal:
Based on size of tree and ease of transfer to truck for disposal. Unless absolutely required, I always suggest simply cutting the tree down to the base and lacing it with poison so it does not grow back. That way it usually only runs a couple hundred bucks to have a typical San Francisco tree removed. Stump grinding, which includes bringing in a fairly bulky machine to chip away at the stump, adds about $150 to a job. Average cost in San Francisco is $350 for COMPLETE removal.

House Washing:
Approx. $95.00 to $295.00 or 10 cents/sq. ft. for single story and 20 cents/Sq. Ft. for double story (Can vary depending on materials used in house, quality of construction, accessibility, and age of materials)
