I’m going to be bidding on a contract with a child development facility.
They said to take a tour of the 7 buildings and the main office before bidding.
They won’t be giving specifics as to what’s to be done.
I’m sure there will be dusting, disinfecting bathrooms, floors. I’m not sure how often these will need to be stripped and refinished. Also, not sure if it’s weekly or daily.
