Sorry where is says $50 it was meant to say $450. My apologies.I manage this.
I honestly and genuinely make $100 an hour on my slowest jobs. They are the dirtiest. Furthermore If I can make one job more profitable, then I don't need to waste time looking for another one.
I cleaned a small living room and hallway for somebody. It took 4.5 hours and cost $50. That's $100 an hour.
I take your point, it is completely fair for you to take the approach. But I'll meticulpusly vacuum, pre spray pre scrub and extract my customer's carpets for $00 an hour thanks.
That's just me though.
