Pricing

Hi,
Weve been asked to clean an office space of approx 13k sq ft once a week. Should I determine by sq ft or hourly? It is office space with restrooms and kitchen that require trash removal, vacuuming carpet, wipe down 2 conference room tables, kitchen counters and appliances; wet mop kitchen floor, clean 6 stalls and 2 urinals and spot clean entrance glass doors. warehouse (8425 sq ft)that only requires dust mopping and trash removal.

Any assistance greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

Smile Price Hourly, Charge Fixed

I would price hourly and charge a fixed fee. Your client won't like the price fluctuating all the time. Good Luck!

We always run into problems charging hourly. We get 10 cents a square foot in Mississippi but it may be different in your area.

Charging $0.10 per sq. ft. would mean $59.00 per cleaning for a 13,000 sq.ft. facility. Wouldn't make much sense! Weekly cleaning accounts we charge per cleaning. Every 3 months would have a 5th cleaning in the month so need to charge for that. You didn't mention desk cleaning, quantity of interior partition glass, % of carpeting to tile flooring, etc. to help with an exact price.

Need help with quote

I have to bid on a 5000 sq ft office. There are 15 office rooms, two bathroom, a small break area. Office floors have carpet, and the rest of the floors are wood. I will be doing the basic cleaning, vaccum,dusting mop, dusting, trash, cleaning restrooms. I am not sure what to charge, it will be a weekly cleaning with 2 people.

$0.10 per sqft. seems reasonable. Would you say that's the industry standard, generally speaking? And would you say most of your bids are successful at this rate?

Question Jahra352?

I'm new to the industry so I may not understand pricing. Just wondering how if you bill .10 cents per sqft and the office is 13k sqft, it comes out to be $59 per cleaning? Thanks in advance for the reply.

Pricing is the process whereby a business sets the price at which it will sell its products and services, and may be part of the business's marketing plan. In setting prices, the business will take into account the price at which it could acquire the goods, the manufacturing cost, the market place, competition, market condition, brand, and quality of product.

Here are the numbers ChinoGuapo. 13,000 sq.ft. x $0.10 = $1,300.00 per month. That is based on 5 x per week cleaning. $1,300.00 per month divided by 22 days = $59.09 per cleaning.
