i know of a guy who cleans two high schools back-to-back and for the year charges $35,000 per school. Takes him half the day to clean though.

It depends on how large the area for cleaning was.
fair pricing,,
You could ask cleaning services for the school pricing.

simplest thingh which worked for me was be honest, explain you'r enew to this and explain why this is a benefit which they wont get with other companies. we won a school contract within first few months of starting and it has helped us massively in the first half of our year. we priced according to classroom and tables and then what needed to be done each night, and not by square meter or however most usually price. we feel we are fairly compeititive and give great service. we were even allowed a 1 month trial at a certain price as they appreciated we were new, and i think knew that as a result would work much harder.

I think it all comes down to number of rooms / square meters and the time and number of staff required to clean the school. These factors will assist in coming up with a quote

Usually schools are more expensive to clean, because its floors... But all depends on cleanable area and frequency of the service required. Every school, different requirements.

You could check for recent RFQ's for local school districts. If the school is in a larger city, chances are the district would put out a proposal request. These are public information so you should be able to look at past bid winners and see what other companies have bid and won at. I've had luck checking on larger towns websites, but if it is a small town, I've noticed the site rarely gets updated or the RFQ/RFP is never even posted

Schoo, daycare, preschool - same

All educational facilities are the same and you charge accordingly, usually its little more then regular office cleaning... But not much, also calculate little bit more spending for chemicals as you can't use bleach or other similar products in school...

Every school is different.

Who is supplying the paper products, the floor wax and would the floor waxing be part of your contract.

What about the windows, the pressure cleaning at the exterior, the removal of gum from underneath desks and lunch tables?

Will they supply the automatic scrubbers and vacuum cleaners, the mops or will you?What about the replacement pads for the scrubbers, the cleaning chemicals?

You can't look at someone else's price and think WOW! that's a lot of money for one school.Not so fast lest you step in poo.

It depends on the school's floor area, how big is it?

Some larger schools may also want a day service, so be prepared to staff evenings and day shifts. Check the cities recent contracts awarded to the last cleaning service. That will give you an idea how much the last bid was for
