Thursday’s Question:ICANATEX Logo

I need to bid on an office space that is 6500 square feet.

It's a mortgage broker's office with about 30 employees.

There are 8 small offices, a kitchen/break area, 2 larger spaces containing 10 cubicles each, a conference room, one bathroom.

Most of it is carpeted, approximately 700 square feet is linoleum or tile.

They want it cleaned 3 times a week. How much do you think I should charge?
