Also if it's by the hour they have the feeling you're milking it to get more hours. The lowest cleanup I have is $125, it takes two guys around 45 min to an hour, and the prices go up from there. Listen to everyone though, leave a little cushion in your price in case the job takes longer than you anticipated.
