How to calculate your glass area ?

Analyse the total amount of glass you clean by the ‘storey’ eg – if you had an average of buildings in this ratio : 2:8:3:2:1 being 2 x 1 storey, to every 8 x 2 storey, to every 3 x 3 storey, to every 2 x 2 storey. 1 x 5 storeys buildings in your client list –

So, out of 16 averaged clients, half are 2 storey building s (8/16).. Now let’s analyse the glass.

ADD all the storeys together – (2×1) + (8×2) + (3×3) + (2×4) + (1×5) = 40 floors cleaned from 16 customers.

Now let’s analyse 2 storey and below GLASS –

All 1 storey glass is 2 and below – ADD 2

All 2 storey glass is 2 and below – ADD 16

2/3 of 3 storey glass is 2 and below – ADD 6

1/2 of 4 storey glass is 2 and below – ADD 4

2/5 of 5 storey glass is 2 and below – ADD 2

ADD the above = 30 out of 40 windows cleaned in the business are 2 storeys and below! That’s 75% of the glass you clean, and only 1/40 (2.5%) is at 5 storeys!

Apply your training for efficiency to this fact – train the fastest way to clean 2 and below as your highest priority – buy the best equipment for cleaning 2 and below : a 10% improvement on everything 2 and below will give you 7.5% straight to your profit!

Don’t focus on the maximum height – it’s a very small % of your business – buy equipment that can extend economically – don’t waste money on fixed length long poles (for example – a 5 storey fixed length pole could cost $2000 to reach 2.5% of your glass, where as an extension will cost $400 and do EXACTLY the same thing)…

The 80:20 rule is the key to efficiency – if you need any help calculating the numbers, put them up here… I will help as much as I can…
