Question

I have been asked to bid on the construction cleanup for a 4800 sq. ft. new home that is 3 weeks from being finished. They want it cleaned, including windows. No outside cleanup just the interior of the home. and insides of the outside windows. How should I bid this to get the job done and make a profit?


Answer

Almost every question of this sort gets a non-answer and you have my apology for that. However, we just don't know enough about your operation and the job requirements to give you anything other than general information.
I suggest you read all the applicable entries in the ICAN archives at:www.icanatex.com/Index.asp, and here are a few to look at.

This should be of some help, but only you have the information you need to bid well and profitably.
