Community / Pricing cleaning for a pharmaceutical lab

I am hoping to get any feedback from the community.

I work for a pharmaceutical company in Toronto, and we are currently paying a cleaning company $4000/month to clean 3800 sq.ft of laboratory space. The work requires sweeping and mopping of floors, mopping walls and wiping down windows. There are no carpets or washrooms. We supply the materials. Is this an amount reasonable for a pharmaceutical or ar we being overcharged?


I would like to start a company myself, as I have the experience and know a few people in the industry that could possibly give me a contract, but I would like to get an idea on how to price the service to see how profitable it is compared to my current job.


Thanks in advance

Community / Choosing Your Cleaning Services

Sometimes it becomes difficult to deal with all the dirt in your home, especially if you are a busy person and do not have the time. The carpet is all discoloured from all the dust and you can barely see the original colour beneath that grey blanket or dirt specks. You can scarcely distinguish shapes when trying to look through all the smudges and stains on your window panes. Some parts of your floor contain so much grease that you are afraid to walk over as one wrong step would send you sliding through the hall. And your kitchen – when was the last time you did some kitchen cleaning? All the appliances are covered with grime, and stains from the last time you cooked, but you have no time to deal with them.


It is high time you browsed for a cleaning company.


When you do not have time to do it yourself, and have nobody to do it for you, then hire professional cleaners. There are plenty of companies that specialise exactly in keeping a house clean, and you can even get a cleaning service which will keep the cleaners coming every now and then to maintain the cleanliness of your home.


But how do you choose between all the different cleaning companies? Yes, you do need to be careful. After all, you cannot just let anyone in your home. There are some cleaners that will leave with more than just your dirt in their waste bags, so choose wisely.


There are many ways you can sift through all the options. The easiest one is to ask a friend for some references. If someone you know has recently used the services of a cleaning agency, simply ask about the job they did. Was everything cleaned? Was everything organised after the cleaning? Was something missing besides the dirt after the cleaners left? Was there something they missed? Did they break something while cleaning? If you like what you hear as an answer, call up that exact company, and you are done with your search.


If you have nobody to ask about it, though, you will need to do your homework in the form of research. Browse for a few cleaning companies and start checking out what they offer. See if they offer quick services, if they could do regular visits to sustain the cleanliness, etc. Ask all the questions that need be asked, and ask them in the office of the company. That way you can check the cleaning agency’s offices first hand and see the how credible they look on the outside at least. They probably have some insurance about their services in case something is broken or goes missing – if not, walk out that door; this company is not for you. You can even ask for a background check on the cleaners or maids they intend to send to your place – you do not want shady people walking into your home. You may even inquire about sending experienced professionals, and not recently hired staff.


Before essaying to do all this, though, you should have a set budget for the cleaning service. Avoid getting the cheapest cleaners you get a recommendation for. It is definitely worth it to pay a slightly bigger bill to ensure a job well done. You may also check if the service offers a flat fee, instead of having it bill you by the hours – especially if you will not be home to see exactly how many hours they will clean.


Lastly, you may opt for a green house cleaning contractor. There are many such companies nowadays and they will not only bring full satisfaction, but will do it in an eco-friendly manner.


Pick wise, pick smart, pick the best option for you, and your home.

Community / Staffing Levels

Hello Everyone!

I am trying to figure out what staffing I should have for a 130,000 sq ft facility that is open 6 days a week fully carpeted and in addition 189 plumbed fixtures, toilets, sinks and water fountains. In addition, we do event set ups and tear downs. Does anyone have a formula that they can refer me to? It would be greatly appreciated!

Community / Which are some cool house cleaning tricks?

1. Fool-Proof Ceiling Fan Cleaner: Hook an old pillowcase over one fan blade at a time and slowly wipe it  backward. The blade will be clean and the dust will be trapped inside.

2. Quick-Dry Wet Shoes and Gloves: Shoes and gloves soaked through from rain or snow? Shove some crumpled  newspaper inside to soak it all up. A sachet of plain uncooked rice  works too.

3. Butter Knife in the Air Vent:   Cruddy air vent or A/C intake? Moisten a clean towel with your favorite  cleaner and wrap around a butter knife. Now you've got the perfect tool  to clean the narrow grate.

4. Easy Bathtub Ring Remover: Cut the grapefruit in half and sprinkle the pink fruit with salt. Wet  your tub and sprinkle additional salt on the bottom. Use the fruit as a  scrubber, being sure to get the juice on every surface. Rinse clean and  enjoy the fresh scent!

Community / Which are some cool house cleaning tricks?

I can understand your concern as I am providing house cleaning services to my various prestigious clients who had same question as yours.I know cleaning the house is very cumbersome and boring task, but it is a necessary evil of healthy living. Though cleaning stuff is not that difficult as it seems if you follow the right strategy. There are a number of time-saving strategies to keep the mess to a minimum, please find below few of such planned activities that anyone can follow as a cleaning trick. 



1.Strip linens and remake beds. When making beds rather than hunch over tucking bottom sheets under the mattress use one hand to lift the corner while tucking the sheet with the other.

2.Clear all clutter , if you’re in a hurry gather clutter in a spare basket or bin for later organization and tuck out of sight in a closet.

3.Clean all of bathrooms at once-make a quick trip around all the bathrooms in the house to clear counters and spray counters and tubs with cleaner, allow to sit while you clean toilets and wipe down the outer toilet surface.

4.Go back and wipe down counters and rinse tub then clean mirrors.

5.Come back to clean the floors when cleaning the kitchen floor.

6.Clear all clutter.

7.Starting in one corner of the room and working around dust all surfaces top to bottom. (If you have blinds and/or ceiling fans, dust those first.)

8.Load all dirty dishes in the dishwasher and fill sink with hot soapy water. If your stove top has removable burner pieces that need to be cleaned, place in water.

9.Clear counters.

10.Dunk sponge in hot water and squeeze out excess, wipe down cabinets, counters and other surfaces again working top to bottom. Rinse sponge in hot water as you clean-you’ll be amazed how much dirt comes off!

Community / Top 5 methods to wipe off dirt from upholstery

1 - Spot cleaning with a brush. Even a simple grooming brush or an old toothbrush can change into the perfect spot cleaning tool in some unexpected cases, because the earlier you clean the spot, the better the cleansing result. Try to wipe off the spills of coffee, tea and other soft drinks as soon as they appear. Spot cleaning prevents the upholstered objects from getting dirtier even more, as well as from spreading the dirt over a larger area. Meanwhile, spot cleaning saves you time and efforts, and you don`t have to buy a whole bottle of detergent for cleaning the entire upholstery of the sofa, for example.

2 - Using a homemade detergent for textile upholstery. The homemade detergents are another cheap solution to get rid of the dirt from almost every kind of upholstery. Just hot water, baking soda, powder laundry detergent and white vinegar in a small bowl creates the perfect solution for cleaning spots from tomato sauce, butter and other spots from kitchen grease. The textile upholsteries, however, absorb much quickly the detergent and so it is easier to deep clean the stains even with a simple homemade detergent of just water, shampoo and baking soda. The foaming effect of the shampoo makes the removal of the dislodged dirt easier as well.


3 - Clean and protect leather upholstery from further cracks. The best way for doing this is first to clean the surface from the dirt on the surface of the leather. Try with rubbing alcohol and a clean cloth by dabbing only, then, rinse with just water. Then, apply only special detergents for leather if there is a need for further cleaning. Spray protective spray to make the leather with a longer lasting clean effect. The spray acts as a sealing layer that keeps the humidity into the leather and so it dries naturally slower. To restore shine and texture of cracks, discolored spots and other blemishes - you may need a special solution with pigmentation and professional cleaning services.

4 - Clean with the vacuuming machine. An essentially important and yet easy way to get rid of the bigger dirt, sand and other loose particles that are stuck into the texture of the upholstered objects. Pre-vacuuming is a great and quick solution to get rid of pet hair as well, and it is especially important to clean the edges of the upholstered objects such as the joints between the back and the seat of the chairs, under the armrests of the sofas, and more. You may need to call the professional cleaners for some upholstered furnishings, or else - rent only a hot-water cleaning machine. It uses hot water to dissolve dry grease and other heavily soiled spots while, in the meantime, it sanitizes and deodorizes the upholstered surfaces.

5 - Apply a bag full of ice cubes to harden gum and traces of gum. Sometimes, it might be a true challenge to clean a gum from the surface of the carpet or from another upholstery object with a flat area. Especially if you forget to clean the gum as soon as it appears, there is a greater chance to forget about it and so to deal with a much persistent stain during the big house cleaning. That`s why just applying ice cubes is enough to harden the stain and to remove it by hand or via spatula. Treat the remaining traces of the dirty spots as usual – with a commercial or with a homemade detergent by dabbing only. Then, use the vacuuming machine to restore the fluffiness of the upholstery.

Community / Help please

As my profile states, my sister and I are starting a post construction cleanup business in the Houston area. We have met with one contractor that is helping us with getting started, learning about biddng and things. Ive been reading on different sites about rates for cleaning...

1.the 3 stages of cleaning, are they charged different rates per clean and if so how much? We are wanting to charge per sq foot

2. powerwashing per sq foot charges, flat surfaces only, ex driveways, sidewalks...

3. is cleaning windows extra or included in the price per square foot? and if so, 2 story houses, how much extra do you charge for doing those windows? im sure you clean them inside and out, right?

This contractor we have talked to wants to pay .36 per sq ft for all cleans, total, which avgs .12, and I really need to know what each clean pays, so I can tell whether this is a good price, something is telling me it isnt. We have other contracotrs to talk to, so we will have a better idea, but I could use the help of some people that are in the business, so I know if all these contractors are shooting me straight. Any help or insight will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

Community / Tire marks on showroom floor.


Try looking to an industrial solvent to remove the marks. It will obliterate the finish, and if not careful, destroy the tile.
