Why you should be cautious about a “low ball” cleaning bid.
It has been said that, “you get what you pay for.” That is certainly true in commercial cleaning. Cleaning bids are calculated on the time it will take a cleaner to perform all the tasks requested. There is a definite connection between time spent and quality. Most cleaning starts off great and then quality starts to decline. There is usually a strong correlation to time spent at the site. What you want to avoid is a bid that only allows time for a “trash and dash” approach to cleaning, no matter what tasks are on your checklist.
Here are three questions to ask “Low Ball” bidders:
- How much time have you budgeted per cleaning visit?
- How did you determine that time?
- How will you stick to the time you have estimated?
