    Default How to get cleaning work?

    Hi I am after advice from anyone who cleans peoples homes as casual income. I am really wanting to do this but not sure what the best way to start out is?

    Here are a few questions I would love help with.

    How do you find your clients?
    What do you charge an hour?
    Do you do cash in hand work or do you have an abn?
    Do you supply your own products?

    Any advice would be great.

    Many thanks

    Gumtree
    It varies- If i am supplying my own stuff, I charge by time slot (2 hours min) for $80. If they supply everything, $25 per hour.
    Both.
    I ask first if they will, most homes will supply their own as they like using certain products.

    At the moment, only 2 ( one each fortnight) as I work elsewhere. They begged me to stay on, and increased my wage, so I agreed.

    my friend just advertised on gumtree - got 2 or 3 clients, and then word of mouth got her a bunch more.

    She charges $30 per hour - cash

    They supply products (from a health pov its better if you use their cloths/mops/products etc)
