Got my first 'commercial' cleanup job!
I just finished my first commercial building....
Its a 4700 sf office building with 47 windows and glass wall panels & doors. I charged .20 cents sf and $5 per window (in & out).
Turns out I had to clean with other contractors still trying to finish up-the 'walk through' with the owners was in just a few days- but the supervisor (and other contractors) were really cool and promised everyone working behind me would clean up after themselves...I managed to get everything cleaned (including spot cleaning carpets).
It took a total of 29 hours to complete - some of those windows were HUGE and NASTY- I only averaged about 4 per hour, but the actual 'building cleaning' average was over 275 sf per hour. I'm guessing that's pretty decent for my first commercial job. And even with the jobsite being 58 miles away (116 mile round trip) I still made a nice profit after expenses.
The company's supervisor seemed impressed with the results. I hope to land more jobs with this company. There's also a company building three new fire dept. buildings and working on all four schools in our district - I hope to land jobs with them too!!!
