Default price of stripping and waxing floors per sq foot?

Usually for stripping and waxing you charge a per square foot price. The actual price varies depending on the job but usually it is around 27 cents to 3o cents a sq foot.

I have customers that charge $0.35 per sqft and some that charge as much as $0.55 per sqft for a complete strip and wax. I do know the guy that charges the .55 is always busy too.

Default my prices for stripping and waxing vinyl tile floors

I charge between .25-.35 cents per square feet on the average. I look at each job and evaluate what needs to be done and how long it will take and I give a fair price for me my cleaners and my clients of course.
I use micro fiber mops for even floor maintenance. I clean and maintain floors every day and I even use microfiber towels for restroom cleaning and office cleaning as well. It costs more money for micro fiber mops and towels but it is worth it.

I work as a contractor and I recently did a strip & wax service for a new company and I'm wondering how much I should charge. The store we serviced was being remodled and these are the specs:
16,222 sq ft. Serviced for 16 days by 2 people for 128 total hours
any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

A quality assured is correct with his prices range. It will vary depending on the job as well as the location.

I wonder if those are good numbers for California? I have not gotten into it yet, but I do have a 175. What else is required? I think it is probably something I should learn even if it doesn't come up that much.

I agree with the 30 per sf, but be quick to factor in labor costs if things need moved, scraping needs done, baseboards need cleaned, etc.
