An Excellent Resource for Knowing What to Charge for a Job

Here's a really good series of articles and blogs that will give you some very good insight into how much to charge for particular jobs and cleaning contracts.

I hope this is helpful to you.

katty Hi,
As you ask that how much charge you should take from your client then I want to tell you that it depends the region where you lives. As cleaning charges varies from place to place. Apart from this if you have good staff and perfect and latest cleaning equipment then you can take high charge and it will save your time. If you are new in this field then you should take charge less than your near competitor.

monica The rates for commercial cleaning vary widely depending upon the area you live. Hourly rates are anywhere from $15 to $40 per hour depending on the type of services that you provide, whether or not you're doing the work yourself, and your company's overhead and expenses.!

nikon To O janitoral service. That was my biggest concern, when beginning. I found this site (down below) that helps out a lot, especially on pricing the job.

sprintcar93 Ya see... I've been in this business long enough to know these things.

Lots of things here. First of all... the amount of time it takes a professional cleaner and the time it takes someone with no experience is 2 different things. where a job might take me an hour, it would probably take you 1.5-1.75 hours.

As far as price goes, before a price can be given you will have to tell us where you are at. For example: if you say you are from Iowa.... Iowa is a big state so that doesn't help. Prices vary from Council Bluffs, Ia to Davenport, Ia. We need to know what city you live in.

Also, are you talking about office cleaning only? Or do you want to get deep in the middle of janitorial? For example: some jobs will want you to take care of their hard floor or carpet. But don't let that scare you away... you can sub it out to a professional.

sprintcar93 If you don't mind me asking... have you done janitorial work before and do you do any type of floor work such as carpet/strip/wax?
