I have been pressure washing for over 10 years and we do a bunch of residential (60+ jobs a month) and some commercial but I have mostly avoided the city of Houston because of the waste water laws and the headaches involved. I am working on a bid to clean literally MILLIONS of square feet of concrete and hundreds of buildings over 3 years so it is about time I figure this stuff out (better late than never?) I have to get the permits and equipment and there will be a learning curve there but I can't have a learning curve on the bidding process.
My question is this: What is a standard markup for reclaiming and recycling vs. just standard surface cleaning? Lets say I would charge $.10 per square foot with no reclaim or recycle am I looking at $.15? $.20? $.25 with reclaim and recycle and all that is involved wit it?
Thanks in advance for your help (and thanks city of Houston for making this so much harder than is needs to be)!
