ICAN/ATEX: What is the price per square foot in a hospital?

Many cleaning professionals visit the International Custodial Advisers Network (ICAN) Ask the Experts page for insight and, every business day, we deliver advice to better help you perform your job.

Wednesday’s Question:ICANATEX Logo

What is the average cost per square foot to clean a hospital?

Also, what cleaning production rates are accomplishable for this type of business?

Wednesday’s Answer:

This is, once again, a question without a sound answer, given the lack of information about what is to be done and where.

In 2008, Gary Clipperton offered this observation. Perhaps it will prove helpful.

In healthcare, as elsewhere, the answer to that will depend on what is being cleaned and how it is being done.

I have seen cleaning times from 1,000 to 1,600 square feet per hour for an entire medical campus.
