Friday’s Question:ICANATEX Logo

I need help on a estimate. How much can I charge for a 9000 sq. ft. night club with 3 floors?

How much must I pay each employee and how many employees will I need to clean 7 days a week?

Friday’s Answer:

You need to pay your employees at least the minimum wage for your state.

Contact your state's Department of Labor for details on employment and wages.

How many employees you will need will depend on the rate of cleaning in this place.

If a cleaner can cover 2000 sq. ft. an hour, that one person will need 4.5 hours to do the job. You can use two cleaners and split the man-hours between them.

You may need an extra person or two to cover the weekend, since most people don't want to work 7 days a week steadily.

The cleaning rate may run faster or slower  ... Lynn E. Krafft, ICAN/ATEX editor
