How Much Should I Charge for my Commercial Cleaning Services?
Commercial cleaning services are an essential part of any business. A place of business must meet certain guidelines set by the local government in providing a safe, clean, and healthy environment for both employees and customers. Regardless of the service provided by a company, it needs to ensure that it abides by health regulations. Commercial cleaning services is a thriving industry, as more and more businesses are realizing that it needs outside help to maintain the cleanliness of its establishment. So if you want to expand your residential cleaning services, you may ask, “How much should I charge for my commercial cleaning services?”
The first step in establishing costs is identifying what services that you will be able to provide a business. If you are a one-person business that does all the cleaning work yourself, your services may be limited, in comparison to a business that employees multiple individuals.
The general commercial cleaning services provided to business include vacuuming, dusting of counters and furniture in general areas, sanitizing and cleaning of bathrooms and replacing essential supplies, cleaning and disinfecting the kitchen countertops and sink, and garbage disposal. Individual offices are not usually cleaned except for garbage removal and vacuuming; unless the client asks for more specific cleaning. More specialized cleaning can also be offered on a monthly or quarterly basis, such as carpet cleaning, upholstery cleaning, window cleaning, and cleaning light fixtures.
This type of cleaning is usually done after business hours, as to not interfere with business operations. It also ensures that employees and customers are greeted with a fresh clean environment upon returning to work.
Based on the above commercial cleaning services offered, the average rate per hour can range from $15 to $45 per hour. There’s a range in costs due to how many restrooms and offices that need to be cleaned, and how large the square footage of the office is. If you will be providing basic commercial cleaning services for a small office about two times a week, you can charge an average of anywhere between $100 and $200 flat rate per month. Daily cleaning services can increase to approximately $500 to $700 per month.
More specialized commercial cleaning will sometimes use a price per square footage formula of 25 to 55 cents. Again, your charges will be based on what you need to provide to the business and its expectations. It’s important to get general office sizes established, so you can provide your customers with an estimate for its consideration.
It’s important to remember, that despite what you charge, it’s your performance on the client’s expectations that is going to be considered. If you exceed the expectations, you can rest assured in developing a positive, long-term relationship with your client. To run a successful business, it is vital to ask “how much should I charge for my commercial cleaning services?”, but it is also critical to provide excellence in customer service that matches your cleaning rates. If you can’t provide the services promised within the amount you charge, the client will be unhappy, and you will be without a job. Focus on customer service – always.
