Question Need Help with Pricing Bid (Information Inside)

Hi All,

I need a little friendly advice on how to price these two buildings I am bidding for. I have attached a floorplan of the business (cleaning by days - color coordinated) and below you will find out what is needed in terms of cleaning services.
  • One building is 14,000 sq ft. and the other one is 5,000 sq ft.
  • Currently the cleaners clean 5 days a week with 3 people.
  • Take out the trash, vacuum, mop and wipe down kitchen areas
  • Clean batrooms, dust furniture as need only if employees desk are clean
  • Clean main windows to the entry/exit doors
  • They furnish all tissue, soap, etc. need for restrooms and kitchen.
  • We will furnish the cleaning supplies and materials
Any information or suggestions that can be provided will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I just realized that the floorplan exceeds the attachment limit on the forum. Provide an e-mail address and I can e-mail it to you.

Did you happen to glean the information of approx how long the current cleaners are there on average? Or why they are being replaced? If for quality then I would recommend adding more time.

In terms of the stipulation of "only if the employees desk or furniture is clean, forget that.......... someone will still expect you to clean and once you don't they will complain. Plan on adding in some time for that as well

On average they are working about 2 to 3 hours a day. The current company is being replaced due to lack of consistency with their cleaning. The facilities manager shared with me that the company prior to the current company was really good and they hardly had an complaints.

The reason for that company losing the contract was the current company under-bidded them by a $1,000 dollars or so. I guess now they realize they get the type of service they pay for. This is one of my selling points.

T. Peterson/Anyone,

Do you a copy or sample of some forms and agreements you have used for commercial cleaning? If so, could you e-mail them to me at [email protected]

Hmm...so I guess you did get the contract BUT what was the bid?

I'm a rookie but my calculation would be:

It takes an hour to clean 2000sq.ft.

The place is 19000 [together]

It would take a team of two 5hrs to clean 19000sq.ft. per day

5 days X 5 hours = 25 hours per week

25 work hours X $21.50 (hourly rate) = $537.50 per week = $2150 per month

Does this sound right? Feedback please.
