I was recently contacted for a bid request for a building that was 30,000 sq feet, 5 days a week.
I made contact with the company who then sent over expectations of the cleaning, but their itinerary was for 75,000 sq feet, 5 days a week.
Not sure which one they want, but I'll plan to bid for both.
Walk-thru is tomorrow.
So, 30,000 sq ft (3 workers) - $4,936
And 75,000 sq ft (5 workers) - $12,340
The work is spelled out clearly on the itinerary. Below is an example of an area to be cleaned. Further down is their quarterly task requirements.
Please take into account this would be my large contract that I would need employees for, so I know Im ready now. Four years cleaning on my own and am ready for the next level.
Thanks again for your time guys!!
