Im new to the cleaning business, and was trying to find some tips on how to get commercial jobs/and or bid on existing commercial jobs in the area.. Im located in the South Florida Area..
If you want something you never had you must do something you have never done.
I recommend offering your own cleaning products, and finding out how much the other party is currently paying and go 30% less. Getting your foot in the door is step number one. Now you have time to figure out how to make money on this account. Also have help if you take too long to clean a place you will not have time for other business. The faster you can clean the better for you and the customer.
make the customer happy, good job and fast work, no one like a lazy bum. lol.
