I charge per room I'd be at 10 rooms, 2 stair cases, 2 lage walk ins (room price). This would be an awesome job! Assuming they were gonna pay me my full price I'd be at $560.

$100 + gas fee + steps fee + rich neighborhood upgrade + luxury tax + long hose fee + wear and tear on shoes and socks = $780 ;)

Depends on the style of carpet and state of soiling and staining.
.25 -.35 cents a sq $2.50 a stair over the phone quote.
After seeing the state of soiling, staining and style of carpet give firm sq ft price.

Pretty good. That's where I'm around price wise. Except for heavy soiled areas and clutter I charge more for.
This is where i want to be at.. once i get rolling soon, ill see what is realistic. Either way i want my base to be willing to pay this at minimum.

Wow prices all over the place.
How much time are some of you guy's expecting to stay there cleaning.
Based on the sq ft and empty... I'm estimating we would take 3-4 hours two man crew moderately soiled and nice TM.
Pretty easy to say how you would price this on the forum here.
Wonder were some prices would be really at if this wasn't an exercise ( sq ft only info provided ) and an actual job you truly wanted to book.
Man if you can't do a thorough job averaging 800-1000 sq ft an hour at this house I would say time to stop dog fukin and get to work.
Good for you Kevin @ $1470.50 for this house, how many of these did you actually clean last year?
Not calling BS, just wow!
