Estimate ?

Can you give an estimate without having the square footage? Does the cleaning company do the cleaning specification form or does the office manager?

Office managers rarely have or know the size of their building. You will need to take measurements. I wouldn't do a bid without measurements. There are ways to do it though. You could estimate how long it would take to clean and how many people and bid based on an hourly rate. I don't particularly like this method. Sometimes the company will have a scope of work. Most will not. You will have to create this as well.

Great advice. The one our office uses goes by hours.
