my prices for stripping and waxing vinyl tile floors

I charge between .25-.35 cents per square feet on the average. I look at each job and evaluate what needs to be done and how long it will take and I give a fair price for me my cleaners and my clients of course.
I use micro fiber mops for even floor maintenance. I clean and maintain floors every day and I even use microfiber towels for restroom cleaning and office cleaning as well. It costs more money for micro fiber mops and towels but it is worth it.

I work as a contractor and I recently did a strip & wax service for a new company and I'm wondering how much I should charge. The store we serviced was being remodled and these are the specs:
16,222 sq ft. Serviced for 16 days by 2 people for 128 total hours
any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I agree with the 30¢ per sf, but be quick to factor in labor costs if things need moved, scraping needs done, baseboards need cleaned, etc.

Do not under bid

If you are just starting out, you have a choice. To become know as the person who does it cheap or the person who does it well. I never bid under 55-70 cents ft. I have to turn down work at times. Try to plan $75-100 man hour plus chemicals for strippping and waxing.
