The number one question we get from current and potential clients is “How much does it cost”? However, just knowing the number doesn’t provide a full understanding. There is a process used for generating commercial cleaning quotes and we’re dropping the veil and reviewing the key factors Hamilton Janitorial considers when providing quotes for our commercial cleaning services.
- Site Walkthrough
To provide an accurate cleaning quote an assessment must be made of the space, commonly called a walkthrough. The walkthrough is done to inspect and understand factors such as size, layout, foot traffic and cleaning requirements. Things such as the type of flooring, the number of windows, specialized equipment or machinery, and square footage are all considered when estimating the scope of the cleaning job.
2. Frequency of Cleaning
The frequency of the cleaning services has a direct impact on the cost. A daily cleaning schedule will inevitably cost more than a weekly or monthly cleaning service. Cleaning professionals need to understand the client’s unique cleaning needs for the space to recommend the appropriate cleaning frequency.
3. Scope of Services
Not all commercial spaces require the same level of cleaning. The scope of services will depend on the specific needs of the client. This might include general cleaning tasks such as dusting, vacuuming, and trash removal, or more specialized services like carpet cleaning, window washing, or floor waxing. The more comprehensive the cleaning services, the higher the quote is likely to be.
The size of a space impacts the number of cleaning staff required and the time it will take to complete the cleaning. Labor cost is a major component of any cleaning quote and is determined based on the estimated hours needed to perform the cleaning tasks efficiently.
5. Cleaning Supplies and Equipment
Cleaning supplies and equipment can vary based on the type of surfaces in the commercial space and the specific cleaning requirements. Some clients prefer eco-friendly or specialized cleaning products, that can affect the cleaning cost.
Generating accurate commercial cleaning quotes is a detailed process that involves a full understanding of the client’s needs, the unique specifications of the space, and the level of service requested. The above factors help Hamilton Janitorial to provide custom quotes to our clients that match their specific needs.
