I just started a new cleaning business. I just wanted to know the average price for cleaning a church with 4 restrooms,large santuary,7-8 classrooms and offices, 4 halls, and a staircase.
This will be general cleaning, maybe 3 days a week.
They also want all the halls stripped and refinished, including a very large cafeteria.
