The average commercial building cleaners charge $35 an hour. You will need to determine how many hours it will take you and your crew to clean this space. Most office buildings, doctor's office, or commercial offices take around 4 hours to clean this size area.

However, considering this is a new constructed building and the dust and other factors left behind will take longer to clean. If you have a 3 man/woman team I would say this will take you between 5 to 6 hours to finish the job. I would estimate that your total charges should be around $210 to $250 to clean this space.

It will be more than you would charge for a regular cleaning, because you will have more dust and debris. Depending on your area, charge between $50-150 more.

Final construction cleaning is important stage I would think, is it the stage to show/sell the house in?


This would cost more than regular cleaning. If it's 2 stories, or 3 - it would cost more as the upstairs would need cleaning with the walls/windows.

Rates would vary depending on location. I would do research and see how much it is in your area per hour and give a competitive rate.

Construction debris could include nails, carpet / flooring remnants, stickers on windows, packing materials from light fixtures as well as kitchen and bathroom fixtures, sawdust, drywall dust everywhere. Have a look at the place before providing a quote? The simple way would be to provide an hourly fee for the three of you, including any special equipment or supplies you may need to rent then provide a final bill upon completion. Calculating hours isn't always easy.

It may depend a little on the rates in your local area. However this kind of ranges around $20-35/person/hr so for 3 people you are looking at $60-105/hr so you should probably find out what the going rates are in your area so to be comparable. A house this size in new construction can take at least 6 hrs - 8 or 10 and that all depends on how many cupboards/closets, what kind/ how many other fixtures, etc, that you will have to clean.


So, go look at it before you give an estimate and figure in the above along with the amount of debri you will have to contend with and go by the rates in your area.
