I don’t know the exact cost to make our chemicals, I’m sure the manufacturers are making a good profit but isn’t that what being in business is about? On top of the raw materials you also need to consider the production cost. I had the opportunity to tour the Bridgepoint factory and the place is huge, I’d guess the building to be around 50,000 square feet (half a wal-Mart). They have dozens of people working there to bring us the products we need. Tom is there every day doing research and development constantly improving our chemicals and making our job easier. Sure, that jug of chemical we are paying $45 for may only cost $10 to produce (I don’t know what the actual number is, I’m just guessing) but look at how much easier our life is because of what we have. I’m using $3-$5 worth of chemical per house to make a couple hundred.
I’m sure our customers think the same thing of us. How dare we charge $250 to Clean their house??? After all it’s only costing us $5 to do the job, right??? (Can you hear my sarcasm here). The customer doesn’t take into consideration all the other costs we have as business owners. I think as cleaners we are guilty of doing the same thing to our suppliers.
