Coronavirus questions

Hello, it's been a while since I posted on here. I have some questions concerning coronavirus and how you professional cleaners are handling it.

I currently own a commercial cleaning company in the Northeastern part of the US. My business had been sidelined up to 75% for the past 2+ months since the onset of the virus. States are starting to reopen back for business and some of my returning /recurring clients have pertinent questions:

1. Cost to do a deep clean. Has anyone done any sort of coronavirus preventative cleanup and how much did you charge relative to a normal deep clean?
2. For recurring deep cleans subsequent to the initial deep clean for germ-phobic customers, how much are/did you charge and was it a fraction of the previous initial deep clean?

Continuum...Thanks for the ?.. I just finished a Free Enhanced Facility Disinfection Course thru Betco U at the course covers disinfecting, PPE, Betco's Disinfectants, safe zone, equipment etc.
What I do for my current customers is the Covid precleaning, disinfect & clean the common touch points light switches door handles, sinks & counters microwave ext.
So far I have had only 1 Covid 19 Infection Cleanup request from a mattress manufacturer, I turned the job down because there was no way to get PPE + Disinfectant Sprayer/Mister/Fogger---which is not recommended by the above mentioned course.
having taken the course. I believe I will be better prepared to handle a "deep clean disinfection' request by a new or reopen customer.
pricing.... I think if they have been closed for awhile, tack on several hours extra, again this would depend on facility size, number of desks phones surfaces to be pre dust removal then disinfected/cleaned + carpet cleaning with disinfectant? Overhead light fixtures? breakroom cabinets faces etc.

Thanks for the response. I agree that additional hrs should be tacked on for labor + materials cost if utilizing PPE and hard to get stuff like N95 masks, etc.
Good luck. I think the whole game has changed now for commercial and residential cleaning. Lots more to make in the industry just as long as your team is properly trained for these types of cleaning going forward.
