Mobile you can clean up mortar smears (done with acid), rinse driveways and walks etc. I have known three people that have done it and hated it.

We do post construciton clean up in Georgia and have the opportunity to make some bids in Texas, New Jersey and Maryland. Wondering what people pay their day laborers for construciton clean up in these other states, we currently pay $8.00/hr. Also wondering what a reasonable or "going" rate for price per sq ft would be?

I am not sure about the other states but in Texas the rate is anywhere between 16-25 cents a square foot. I know that is a wide range. We usually go somewhere in the middle. Depending on how much work they are going to need. I think $8.00 might be a little low for labor. Maybe $10-$12. You might get better workers.

Default Construction cleanups

Evaluate what exactly is needed for the cleanup that youll be doing. whether its commercial or residential and how many ppl is needed. Have a good price and ppl will remember and refer others to use you!

We are doing are construction clean of a large commercial building.

A word of caution is never provide a fixed price only an estimate.

We are having to go over a few areas again because the architects have come in and have asked the painters or carpenters re do ceartin parts.

This meant drilling, sanding and then painting.

If you're not careful your profits being eaten away by going over the job again.

By providing an estimate you have room to renegotiate the price.

Yes we prefer to go in when the jobs finaaly done. But architects/valuers want the cleaning done before the final approval of the construction so that the builders/subcontractors get paid the final amount.

Hello Healyk,

You're starting into one of the most profitable aspects of the Commercial Cleaning Industry. It's also incredibly challenging and at the end of the day we learn it was all about communication. Each G/C is different and his Site Supers also have different "hot buttons". I see you're receiving some good info here in this thread. My best hint would be to offer this link: http://www.acleaningbid.com/index_fi...n_clean_up.htm . It offers a huge amount of Construction clean-up information and some helpful free tools. Good luck with your new endevor!

hello, we are just expanding into construction site clean up and was wondering how to get started. How do you find out the prices in our area (Kansas City) and how do I get some training on what to clean, etc. Thanks for any help you might be able to provide. Judy

well you can call allot of construction companies in your area and also if you do get a lead it will be for dust cleaning and sheetrock dust sweepind and mopping glass doors etc.. but also ask the construction co. are there prevailing wages and what is the P.R.C number then you take that and go from there. hope this helps( in KS what do they charge for commercial cleaning per sq. foot.
