Thanks. There are 70 people and 100 desks.
2 trash cans per desk one of which is shredded papaerwork
That goes into a separate container. I'm
Charging 650 a week for a full cleaning on one
Day and a partial cleaning one other day.
Is that too much?

4 hours for partial and 6.5 to do entire cleaning.
We do not supply paper towels and bags. We
Do supply vacuum( on our 4th one in less than a year)
And all sprays and tools.

So you are working about 10.5 hours per week for the week? if so you are doing fine...assuming that's one person
You should invest in a commercial vacuum as many of them have metal fan blades and if you suck up a paper clip it will not typically damage the blades,but a regular vac that you get from the department stores have plastic fan blades and a paper clip or a small coin will kill your vac.

Try the windsor sensors. Not cheap, but you should not burn them up anytime soon.Plus they offer a fabric bag that you can reuse over and over.
The paper bags,filters and fabric bags can be bought much cheaper on Amazon.The vac you will have to get from a dealer.

Gvod: What I've done in the past, and this is for you in the future, is I've put a 'not to exceed limit' on the first week or so of cleaning and given that to the facility manager or whomever and asked to go on T&M and most people are very happy to do that. Explain that you won't know how dirty it is until you actually get into the cleaning and that every building is different and you don't want to short change him on the quality of work that you bring to the table nor do you want to overcharge him a price based on sq footage alone.

That being said, I'm in a slightly different cleaning industry than regular commercial work so this may not be as easy.

Has anyone else tried this option??
