Hello Unnamed, welcome to cleaningtalk.com

You really should have licensing, Liability insurance and workman's comp insurance in place prior to bidding any job, but I am seriously doubtful that you will have your bid entertained by any builder without the insurances being in place as that would place the liability squarely upon them if anything went wrong and they just are not going to take that risk

Thanks for info. We have spoken with insurance agency and are getting insurance in place. The man I am bidding is a good friend so he knows that we will have everything in order before starting the job. One of the friends I am working with generally charges .27 cent per sq. ft. but the man we are meeting said his company is paying around .36 cent. I will find out all of the specifics in the morning.

Sounds like you have a great foot in the door then If they are paying .36 cents they are paying on the high end of the scale

I really need some help finding out rates in SC on post construction cleaning. I need an idea on sq ft pricing and windows to make sure I am bidding right.
