Calculating the Cost of Janitorial Services

There are a number of different factors that impact the cost of janitorial services, including:

1. Geographic location. Where is the facility located? Prices for labor tend to be higher in bigger cities and major metropolitan areas. You can expect to pay a little less than the nationwide average if you live in a smaller town. Need help finding janitorial services in your area?

2. What type of services are needed? Before contacting a company, you should prepare a list of services that you will require. This will help give the company give you a better cost estimate. Janitorial services may include sweeping, vacuuming, mopping, waste and trash removal, toilet cleaning, refilling soap dispensers, and appliance cleaning. Additional services will require additional labor and supplies.

3. Number of crew members. How many people are needed to complete the work? Bringing on additional crew members typically increases the cost of cleaning services. However, a large team may be able to accomplish the job in a more timely fashion.

4. Square footage. How much of the area needs to be cleaned? For large jobs, the janitorial service may base their quote on the square footage of the building. Don’t worry, they’ll leave out any unused or unoccupied areas that don’t need to be cleaned like storage rooms and basements.

5. Who will provide the cleaning supplies? The janitorial service typically provides all of the necessary cleaning supplies. Make sure to get an itemized list of included supplies with your quote.

6. Flooring type. The type of flooring throughout the space may impact the cost of janitorial services. Floor waxing and carpet steam cleaning will come at an additional cost as they require additional labor and equipment.

7. What type of building needs to be cleaned? Janitorial services are needed in warehouses, traditional office buildings, hospitals, schools, and many other commercial buildings. Each type of building has its own unique set of challenges. The current condition of the facility will likely affect the cost of cleaning services. For example, it may be more expensive to clean an aging building than a brand-new space.

8. Multiple locations. Does your business have multiple locations? Hiring the same janitorial service to clean several locations may help you save money over time.

9. One-time cleaning vs. Recurring service. Contract jobs are typically more affordable on a "per visit"-basis than one-time cleaning services. The initial cleaning visit will require additional time and supplies.

10. How often are the services needed? Do you need help every day? Once a week? Once a month? A janitorial service will work with you to establish the right schedule for your needs. While a gym or a daycare center may need to be cleaned nightly, a church may only need janitorial services on a weekly basis. As you might guess, the more help you need, the more you can expect to pay. However, it's typically easier to clean a space that is cleaned frequently as there is less time for a mess to accumulate.
