Thursday’s Question:ICANATEX Logo

We are bidding on cleaning a 100,000 square foot concrete floor twice a week in addition to a 5000 square foot office space five days a week.

Any help on figuring out what to charge would be greatly appreciated.

Thursday’s Answer:

Your charges are based on your costs of doing the work plus a determined profit to expand and secure the business.

The greatest concern is the time it will take you, which affects the labor costs.

You need to look through the multitudes of inquiries we have dealt with for many years that have asked this same question.
