dazed and confused

Hello, I am a newbie also. We have a acrylic texture company now and work for home builders in the orlando area. I have been given the opportunity to expand our company and bid on doing the interior cleaning on new construction homes. The problem is I have no idea where to start. Is there a place to go to see a scope of work for new construction cleaning? I know we would be going in 3 times to clean. What is the going rate for central florida? We have been asked to go down on our prices again with acrylic decking, so I know the prices for cleaning would be low. would the $0.15 per square foot (if that is close) be for each cleaning or just that price no matter how many times we go in to clean? and what do the extras normally run? help!

Hi Dazed, here in NC 0.15 is about the going rate. We do alot of construction clean up work. Usually you quote the price according to the job whether it takes one day or two. Something I do on these types of jobs is I make sure I have enough help to get it done as quickly as possible, because the faster you complete it, the more profit you will make. In the summer, I take my teenage nephews and they haul stuff out and different things that make it come together faster. Even paying my workers a good pay by the hour for this work, if I can make a sixteen hour job into an eight hour job just by paying one extra person for a day? Heck yeah, because it not only makes you money, but it'll increase the amount of work you'll be able to do.
