Starting a commercial cleaning business, need help!
My name is Maya and I'm on my way to getting my commercial cleaning business started, problem is that I don't know exactly where to start.
I have experience cleaning a 45,000 square foot school/church building daily for two years, as well as deep cleaning during the summer for five days a week while the kids are out of school. I learned a lot of the tricks and such, so I hope that my experience will prove my worth.
The actual problem I face is what to charge and how to get my name out there. Here are some of my questions.
+Should I start a website?
+I live in WA state, whats the going rate per hour and per sq foot?
+Should I go business to business and simply ask if potential clients are looking for a cleaning service?
So far, I've learned that I need to offer a multitude of services in order to stand out. I plan on offering general commercial cleaning, carpet cleaning, hard floor care (buffing, waxing, stripping), and window washing.
Does anyone know how much I should charge for these extra services?
Any help would be great, I know I have a lot of questions, I just want to find out as much as I can before meeting with potential clients.
Thank you so much,
