Tired of losing- let win!

So here is my issue.

We have been cleaning for roughly a year now. We are use to pricing smaller jobs by the looks of the time it would take to complete.

Last night we did a walk through for a 20,000 square foot building. Much bigger.

I want this however I am at a loss on a competitive price.

I believe that there could be great money to made here- plus they are building another location (40 or 50,000 square feet believe). We want this, nuff said.

We are in Ohio, fellow Ohioan input would be a game changer- at any rate- anyone please answer.

For bigger spots like this what would be a competitive sq foot price? This is an office building. Lots of vacuuming, like 6 restrooms, a few windows here and , lots of cubicles, taking out trash- really your basic things.

Please help us community. Also if you have any clue on how long this kind of job takes on average fill me in! My range is from 4-8 hours. So clearly I'm not the best at this.

Without seeing for myself I would say in the 6-7 total manhours range per nightly cleaning. That would put us somewhere between $2,995.00 - $3,595.00 per month. A lot depends on whether you are cleaning directly for the tenant of the building or a property management company. The tenant usually wants quality cleaning while the property manager wants the cheapest price possible.
