Question

I am bidding on a dialysis clinic cleaning 3 days a week 5 carpet rooms, 5 restrooms, mopping 4500 sq. ft. tile. Then, I need to bid on the same clinic forr 6 days a week, with 2 employees, about 4 hrs each. The building is about 8500 sq. ft.


Answer

Your cleaning production rate for a standard janitorial clean for this type of facility is probably about 2,800 sq. ft. per hour. Divide that into the cleanable sq. ft. and you will have the hours per night. Add up the hours for the month plus any excessive travel time. In your city, for a small building this size, you could probably calculate your billing at $25 an hour.
