Cost of Commercial Cleaning Services

If you own a business, then you will probably consider hiring a professional cleaning service at some point. A local cleaning service can provide a clean and safe environment for your employees and customers and help your business maintain its competitive edge.

For this reason, it should come as no surprise that the commercial cleaning market has made more than $70 billion for the past four years.

The majority of this revenue comes from commercial properties, including restaurants, medical centers, retail stores, office buildings and sports facilities. With so much money flowing through this industry, you may wonder whether your commercial cleaning provider is giving you the fairest price possible.

At Compass Cleaning Solutions, we want our customers to understand the pricing factors that will influence their commercial cleaning quote. In the following post, we describe these pricing factors in detail and offer some advice for business owners who are looking for commercial cleaning services for the first time.

Cost Drivers Influencing Your Commercial Cleaning Quote

If you have ever looked for a Phoenix cleaning service, then you may have noticed that some commercial cleaners charge more than others.

While having higher prices is not always a red flag, it is important for you to understand the cost drivers influencing your commercial cleaning quote.

Here are some of the factors that will determine the price of our cleaning services.

Size of Your Commercial Building

The size of your commercial building is typically the biggest factor that will influence your commercial cleaning quote.

Most commercial cleaning companies will price their services based on the square footage of your space alone or charge an hourly rate for their services.

While Compass uses square footage as a pricing factor, we will adjust the square footage for the type of industry and frequency of service.

Certain kinds of buildings require different levels of attention which cannot be addressed with a single price per square foot. By accounting for your industry, we will make sure you do not overpay for our services.

At Compass Cleaning Solutions, our customers pay a flat monthly fee for our commercial cleaning services. You will know upfront what you will pay each month, eliminating the chance of any surprise billings.

The size of your commercial building is one factor that will determine the amount of your monthly fee.

Frequency of Cleaning

Do you want your commercial building cleaned monthly, weekly or on multiple days per week?

Depending on your industry, your business may require more or less attention, and that should be taken into account. Your business is unique, and your pricing should reflect that.

As you can see, the amount of time we spend cleaning your facility will affect the cost of our commercial cleaning services. If you have no idea how often your office needs cleaning, then we can help you find the right cleaning schedule for your situation.

In most cases, the perfect cleaning schedule will depend on the type of business you own, the amount of traffic your workplace receives and how many employees you have on staff.

Number of Cleaning Tasks Required

In our experience, there is no such thing as a standard commercial cleaning job.

A 2,000 square foot office will have different cleaning needs than a 10,000 square foot warehouse facility. A professional restaurant will have different cleaning needs than a school or a medical office.

Each of these commercial spaces will have different high touchpoint areas that require specialized attention. The number of cleaning tasks we complete each visit will play a role in determining the price of your monthly fee.

Here are some of the personalized cleaning services we offer our local customers.

How to Receive a Fair Commercial Cleaning Quote

Are you looking for commercial cleaning services for the first time? If so, there are several tips you should follow to ensure you pay a fair commercial cleaning rate.

First, you should always get a commercial cleaning quote in writing. A cleaning company should have no problem giving you an itemized breakdown of the costs of your cleaning project. As the customer, you deserve to know that we put every dollar you spend to good use.

Second, you should get multiple pricing estimates before selecting a cleaning company. This will give you the opportunity to compare the pricing of multiple companies and help you better understand what services you actually need.

While pricing is one of the most important factors, you should never pick a cleaning company solely because they are the least expensive option.

You should consider the type of cleaning equipment they will use, whether they use organic, sustainable cleaning products, how they screen their employees and whether the company is licensed and bonded.

These factors will help you make the most informed decision and ensure your business receives the best cleaning possible. They will also keep you protected if anything unexpected happens during your cleaning.

At Compass Cleaning Solutions, we are confident that our commercial cleaners will add value to your business and give you a professional cleaning experience.
