    How to bid on commercial cleaning contracts
    I have started a home based janitorial company. Do anyone know how to bid on commercial building cleaning jobs? I was informed that multiplying the total square foot of areas to be cleaned by cents per square foot is one way. Are there any other ways?

    First you have to determine what is going to be cleaned, and how is it going to be cleaned.
    It is a warehouse that is going to be cleane with mobile cleaning machines, does the areas need sweeping, vacs, outside cleaning, and so on.
    You can go by estimated man hours

    4 cents per square foot
    Depends on how frequent per month

    What is the procedure of bidding after you've calculated the sq. footage.
