Need bid advice

I am bidding a 17,200 sq foot office.
22 offices 34 cubicles
2 conference rooms
2 bathrooms
lunchroom with 7 tables
2 stairways

They want it clean 5x per week. Floors are mostly carpet some tile.

All the doors are glass.

According to them an old lady is cleaning it at the moment and takes 10 hours and does not do a good job.

They are supplying all products

Yikes, that is a big job. Not one I would undertake, but I work all by myself and yes, I am a "little old lady" of 68. It WOULD take at least 8-10 hours to do right!

Do you know what they are paying her?

I have seen estimates for 1 person to clean 2500 sq ft to 3500 sq ft per hour. Remember this is an average or ballpark. You probably won't be doing a full clean each night but probably a mix of M W F full clean Tue Thr light clean depending on what the customer wants. offers a Free Trial of their bidding software, you might try that out if you get stuck. has a search box... type in cleaning time per sq ft or Mickey Crowe--he writes for Claning industry website
