Commercial Cleaning Cost Factors
As commercial cleaning services offer help for a wide range of property types, restaurants, officers, medical facilities, retail locations, churches, schools and more – it means the average price can vary greatly for commercial cleaning services. When you consider that some customers prefer to hire professional standard cleaners for just a one-time service and others will use the cleaning service on a daily and ongoing basis, it helps explain some of the variants in cost. So, let’s take a look at some of the factors that can impact commercial cleaning costs:

-Commercial Cleaning Rates per Square Foot

How Number of Windows and Bathrooms Affect Commercial Cleaning Costs

The more windows to be washed and the more numerous the high traffic areas are to be cleaned, the more expensive the total cleaning cost will be.

Commercial Cleaning Flat Rates
There are some commercial cleaning companies who charge a flat rate when they clean a commercial space. Usually, they will perform a site visit to walk-through and make a determination about how many employees they will have to utilize and the expected length of the job by looking at he number of rooms, room types and square footage. They then break down the job by the hour to provide a total price to their customer.

Commercial Cleaning Hourly Rates
Cleaning rates of around $50 to $100 per hour per worker assigned to the job represent an average range of prices. Companies who charge an hourly rate may provide a free cost estimate based primarily off the amount of time it will take to clean a space.
