Cost is a major deciding factor even more than quality these days because no one wants to pay extra than the actual, right? Here’s a complete guide that you can come back to for understanding the costing for any of the commercial cleaning services that you’re looking for.
For residential cleaning, the cost involved can range anything from $30 to $50. The charge might vary or escalate depending on your other requirements like extensive window cleaning, carpet cleaning, or deep cleaning that you avail on spot.
For commercial cleaning, the costing usually is decided on an hourly basis and can range between $30 to $35 for comprehensive whole premises coverage. If you are only looking for basic routine cleaning like sweeping, mopping, vacuuming, or garbage clearance, the cost would go as low as $20. On a side note, if you’re going for full-fledged deep cleaning services that include cleaning, disinfection, and sanitization modules, the package that you are charged might be anywhere between $40 to $50.
The above numbers are an overall picture depending on the market trends that we have been seeing around. There are a lot of factors in consideration, based on which the rates are decided.
You might be charged on the following base grounds for your commercial cleaning requirements
Hourly basis model
Depending on the size of the premises
Type of cleaning modules to be implemented
Charge per square foot
Standard rates for individual requirements
Discounted rates for routine cleaning
Recurring cleaning cost
If you’re looking to build a routine cleaning schedule with a professional cleaning company in Sydney, the quotation that you’re provided with will ideally look like the following
$50 to $100 weekly
$75 to $130 monthly
$150 to $200 for a once-off cleaning which includes everything that your premises need in terms of cleaning
Charge per square foot of your commercial space
For smaller spaces, the cost might mostly revolve around fixed packages or go with the hourly charges model. But for larger spaces, the cleaning requirements might become more complex and diverse since there is just a lot of ground to cover.
Hence, in such cases, you might be provided with packages based on space coverage. Ideally, you might be charged between 50 cents per square foot for basic cleaning and 80 cents per square foot for deep-cleaning services.
While some companies include all your floors, walls, and windows in this attribute, the rest might just quote this for the floor space and give you a separate quote for all the additional areas.
Hourly packages and how much cleaning can be completed in an hour
The hourly packages here in Sydney range from $50 to $80 an hour depending on what exactly you’re looking for.
Ideally, one single cleaner can cover about 3,000 square feet in about an hour to give a quality result. If you’re only looking for basic brooming, vacuuming, and mopping, one cleaner can cover about 7000 to 9000 square feet in an hour.
These hourly charges are not fixed and are subjective to variations depending on the following factors:
1. The intensity of cleaning required
No two places are alike, one might be dirtier than the other and might require a lot more supplies and efforts than the other. The hourly rates or the rates per space might change also in accordance with this prominent factor.
2. Number of cleaners involved
The larger space, the higher will be the number of cleaners that are deployed at your premises because it’ll reduce the overall time involved in cleaning. In such cases, the hourly rates might be multiplied by the number of cleaners that are sent.
3. Frequency of recurring needs
Any company that sees a future value in you and deem you as a long term business prospect might provide you with an attractive package that is lower than the actual market rate for a one-time effort. The charges might even reduce up to 50% if you go for a monthly retainer model.
4. Product, supplies, and equipment specifications
Cleaning for your industrial premise might demand heavy-duty equipment like commercial vacuum cleaners, high-rise window rope set up, and a lot more. The supplies might also be a lot more intensive if your premise is dirty than usual. A lot of professional companies only go for industry-grade yet eco-friendly alternatives that are expensive on cash but easy on your health and environment.
In such cases, the quality of output might demand a little extra money than the cheap alternatives that you find around.
5. Areas of coverage
While some cleaning companies cover everything from windows or doors to restrooms under the general packages that they offer, there might be some exceptions that you’ll have to pay extra. These areas include high rise exterior windows, carpets, roof cleaning, strata cleaning, or manufacturing equipment.
Window cleaning might add up to $45 per hour and carpets usually require steam cleaning that rounds up somewhere between $30 to $40 per hour.
Choose quality over anything else
There is always an underlying reason why a cheap alternative is not going to benefit you as much as a quality service that you avail for a dollar or two extra. A professional cleaning company backed by years of experience will exactly know what they are doing. They have grown themselves a profitable business only because of the customer satisfaction they’ve been delivering time and again.
Your business in itself is going to depend on the impression that you present at first sight to any prospect that enters your premise. Cleaning as little as might look on paper will give you a lasting image if you get it right. So, remember to always go for a noticeable player in the market like JBN cleaning with 10 whole years of experience.
