The short answer is yes, you should factor in janitorial expenses for your company’s budget. Let’s look at the average cost to clean an office to get a better understanding of how to budget your cleaning expenses.
This post covers the following topics:
- Examples of cleaning service prices
- How commercial cleaning contracts work
- How different factors affect your cleaning budget
- The types of cleaning services Brenner Facility Services offers
Commercial cleaning rates vary by the tasks performed and the surfaces being cleaned. That said, let’s look at some examples of service pricing for commercial cleaning:
The prices of janitorial services vary based on how many services you need and how big your commercial space is. If you have a very small office and you only want it dusted and vacuumed with the trash emptied, those services could cost you $20 to $30 per month. However, if you have a larger office and you want a wider range of cleaning services, including deep cleaning, you could pay up to $1,000 per month.
Commercial cleaners often price floor cleaning services by cents per square foot. They usually start at 5 cents per square foot, but they can go as high as 55 cents. Commercial cleaning companies often price floor services separately from their usual office cleaning services, so be sure to factor in prices around 25 cents per square foot for stripping and waxing floors when you plan out your cleaning budget.
The prices listed above are the hourly rates you pay for individual cleaning services. Those prices could take a toll on your cleaning budget if you always pay for individual cleaning jobs. A commercial cleaning contract could solve those issues by bundling a variety of services. The average commercial cleaning contract charges a flat rate every month. When you start a contract with a cleaning company, be sure to ask what their monthly rates cover. Do they cover their employees’ salaries and cleaning supplies? Which services aren’t covered by the contract? Asking these questions upfront helps you develop a cleaning contract that meets your facility’s needs.

Obviously, certain parts of the cleaning process affect commercial cleaning prices. One cleaning company’s prices may be higher than another, but those prices are influenced by the following factors:
The company’s size
The number of employees
The amount and quality of its cleaning supplies
Surfaces they clean
Specialized services (deep cleaning, floor stripping and waxing, clean room disinfection)
When you get a quote for cleaning a space in your facility, ask the commercial cleaner how these factors influence their prices and whether their cleaning contracts cover them. By doing so, you’ll know if their services fit your cleaning budget and why.
