Hiring services to clean your outdoor area can be quick and convenient, but the costs do add up. If you’re trying to save money this year, there’s one easy way to cut down on spending – do your outdoor cleaning jobs yourself. However, if you’re short on time, or you don’t want to/can’t do hours of back-breaking work due to physical issues, there’s one tool that can practically do it all for you. Read on to find out more…
How much does it cost to clean windows, gutters, and more?
There are a lot of factors that can influence outdoor cleaning costs, such as location, the size of the area needing cleaning, and the experience of the cleaning company. However, these are the average costs that I’ve found for each cleaning service:
- Windows (3-bed semi with conservatory) – £15
- Guttering (5m) – £30
- Patio or deck cleaning (4m2) – £25
- Driveway (5m2) – £50
- Car (simple hand wash) – £6
That adds up to £126! Even if you only use these services once every two months, that still adds up to £756 per year. You could be spending that money on a holiday!
So what’s the alternative?
You don’t need to get on your hands and knees to scrub your driveway, or risk your life on a ladder trying to clean your upstairs windows. You don’t even need to do anything strenuous, as there’s one extremely handy tool that can solve all your outdoor cleaning issues. All you need to do is hold it…
