We need help bidding on a warehouse cleaning, 44,000 sq ft. Duties include: disposal of all debris in warehouse and in dock area, clean cobwebs-10ft ceilings, dust , clean all hand rails, sweep stairwells, powerwash restroom floors, strip and refinish kitchen floor and 3 restrooms also, clean sinks, mirrors, urinals, toilets,n vacuum area carpet, spot clean no shampoo, shred all documents, remove logo conference door and entry door, and powerwash-mechanical clean warehouse floors (removing dirt, grease, black marks)


Wow! That is lot of work and the overall sq. ft. figure gives us little to go by. You will need to break down the areas by tasks performed, assign some times to each, and run your labor costs. Figure your supply expenses and supervision charges. These must be your numbers for them to work.
