I have been asked to clean an apartment complex. I gave 17 cents per sq. ft. for the apartments' move out cleanings.
Now, they want to know what I would charge to clean the club house,exercise room, two public bathrooms, tanning room, and a full size basketball court.
The basketball court has me stumped. This would be a once a month cleaning. What should I charge?
Friday’s Answer:The common areas should clean twice as fast as the apartments. So your price could be half and you would still earn the same amount per hour.
Editor's note: The basketball court is a totally open space. Use as wide a dust mop as you can find. A touch-up with a damp mop should be all you need beyond that ... ICAN representative
