    By the hour. You'll never over or under bid a job in your life again. :) just don't go to slow OR to fast. A happy getting it done in a timely manner will do. Figure up what your expenses will be (gas, water, machine itself, ect.) then add in some more for profit.

    All the info about equipment, pricing, etc.. can be found at PT State

    You need to do some research. Know your numbers, know how long it will take you to wash a 1200 SF house (less than half hour). In my area, charging by the hour is a sure sign of a hack that does not know what how to wash a house.

    Self employed sucks, read "The Emyth Revisited" by Micheal E. Gerber
