Pricing per sq foot only works for daily cleaning services. You know that you have 2000 sq feet building and it will take x amount of time. Easy to find out costs per sq meter

Once off jobs cannot be priced by software


A lot of stuff to be considered before sending a price

To ease out things in the start, you can also go for "Per Hour" rates.

Try and figure out how long a single person can work through 1,000 square feet. Ideally if you can finish it in 1 hour, then you know what your expenses are going to be for that size of job. From there you can figure out the profit margins you need to make before sending a quote.

How can you quote a job?
not knowing what to do
rates per sq foot or hour
This is not a good idea.
Only estimate.
