What Affects Commercial Cleaning Costs?

Have you decided to look into commercial cleaning for your business? If so, you have made a good decision, but you might have questions about the costs involved and those costs are calculated. Commercial cleaning services estimate costs and deliver quotes based on a variety of variables including your company’s total square footage. In addition, some professional services charge hourly rates while others include a set number of hours in their estimate. Tidy Team Cleaning Service wants you to be informed and know what to expect and have complied this guide to help you understand what goes into a commercial cleaning quote for your business.

The Size of Your Business

One of the most common variables in determining an estimate for commercial cleaning is the size of your office, retail, or other commercial space. Some services use the cost per square footage method while others use an hourly rate based on time needed to clean your space. Either way, the larger your space, the higher your quote.

How Often You’ll Need Cleaning Services

The frequency with which you will need cleaning services is also a factor in your quote. Does your company need weekly, biweekly, monthly cleaning services? If you aren’t sure, a good way to estimate is based on the number of visitors, clients, and staff members who come into your business on a daily basis. This information will help the cleaning service make recommendations to keep your office clean and fresh for those who work there and those who do business with you.

How Much You Need Cleaned with Each Visit

If your space only need light cleaning at each visit, if will considerably less than an office that is similar size but needs full weekly cleaning as well as deep cleaning monthly. Depending on the type of business – law office, retail space, doctors office, business center, and so on – there will be unique needs which need to be addressed, making the touchpoints and tasks to be completed at each visit important in calculating the cost. 

Windows, Bathrooms, and Kitchens

Windows, bathrooms, and kitchens are the most time-consuming than other commercial spaces. Plus, windows, bathrooms, and kitchens require more complicated methods than simpler areas like offices, halls, entryways, and lobbies and will cost more.

What’s Included in Your Quote

When a commercial cleaning service is preparing your quote, they should ask to visit your property and complete an inspection of your space. During the inspection, they can then determine the types and amount of work needed to keep your space cleaned. In addition, they’ll talk to you about what you’d like done on a regular basis and how often you feel their services are needed. Once they have seen your space and discussed your needs and requests, they should be able to provide you with an accurate custom cleaning quote.

In most cases these services are common:

  • Dusting
  • Wiping and Disinfecting Surfaces
  • Sweeping
  • Mopping
  • Vacuuming
  • Trash Removal.

The following services are often considered additional tasks which can be requested as part of your estimate:

  • Stain Removal
  • Carpet Cleaning
  • Breakroom Appliance Cleaning
  • Restocking of Paper Products in Restrooms
  • Furniture Polishing
  • Floor Waxing.
