You may think and feel you want to reduce the number of rough days you have to face - or eliminate them altogether; this may be a mistake

Check out today’s fast paced video where Dan explains how we need to look at ‘rough’ days to see if they have this one characteristic; because if they do, they’re actually good days in disguise. It may even help us handle them better, but even come to appreciate them when they occur.

Everyone has an opinion. Let’s take a look at what works, what doesn’t - and why.

Price per Square Foot

Some say pricing an office cleaning job is as easy as multiplying the total size (cleanable sq. ft.) of a building by so many dollars or cents per square foot.

While this fast and easy approach may seem attractive, as in many things, the ‘devil is in the details’.

For example, you can’t use a figure like $0.10/sq. ft. when bidding 5x/ week cleaning and then simply turn around and think you can use the same $0.10/sq. ft. figure for pricing a 2x/week job; at least not if you hope to set competitive yet profitable prices.

While this may seem obvious, one ‘wonders and worries’…
how many new or inexperienced janitorial businesses have made that costly mistake?!

Interestingly, large, experienced building service contractors who share similar expense and profit percentages in their financial reports may be able get away bidding every large Class A office building based on a set price per sq. ft. figure.

But, small local janitorial business quoting on heavily-used plant office and restroom areas in small manufacturing facilities, expecting to do the same - should think twice.

Since One-Size-Fits-All Methods Rarely Work...

Where to start to fix your cleaning company? Well, it’s not one specific part of your business like marketing, customer service or operations. No, it’s a mind set and can prove to be useful over and over again as you identify which things to fix and how to fix them.
