Pricing Help

Hello All!

I help my father out with his cleaning business so I'm fairly new to this but had a pricing question. My father uses rate per square footage as an estimate of what my ballpark prices should be. He recently put in a bid for a small limo business which has approximately 4 2 stall bathrooms and one 1 stall bathroom.About 2 large conference rooms and a large break area. It's about 20 offices but there are a few empty offices that I'm assuming don't need cleaning at the moment. Should he charge $5-10 extra per bathroom and do the same for conference rooms? Supplies will be provided by us. We are doing the cleaning ourselves so I figured include transportation costs,supplies cost, labor (I figured $15/hr). He came up with 460 for twice a week?Too high?

How much do you need to make an hour to cover your costs and still be profitable?

Pricing is way too low! Did you start your business to make $15.00 per hour and clean it yourself? $50.00 per cleaning won't ever allow you to pay an employee a decent wage and still make a profit. You even mentioned that you provide the supplies? Not sure if you mean chemicals only or all consumables but this price is sad! With that number of offices and bathrooms we would be at $595.00 per month.
