When bidding for a carpet cleaning job, it's crucial to strike a balance between providing a competitive offer and ensuring that your services align with the client's needs. Begin by thoroughly assessing the size of the space, the type of carpet, and any specific cleaning requirements. Consider factors such as the level of soiling, the presence of stains, and the necessity for any specialized treatments.

Craft a detailed and transparent proposal that outlines the scope of work, including the specific cleaning methods, the timeline for completion, and the total cost. Be clear about any additional services, such as furniture moving or stain treatment, and whether these are included in the base price or require an extra fee.

Providing a comprehensive yet easy-to-understand bid not only showcases your professionalism but also helps the client make an informed decision. Additionally, highlight any unique selling points, such as environmentally friendly cleaning practices or the use of advanced equipment, to set your bid apart from the competition

Bidding carpet cleaning jobs can definitely be tough at first, and it does take some practice. Charging per square foot or per room both have their merits.

Per Square Foot: It's straightforward, especially for larger areas. Clients appreciate the transparency, and it accounts for the actual space cleaned. However, it might get a bit complex if there are various surfaces or intricate spaces.
Per Room: Simplicity is the name of the game. Clients easily understand what they're paying for, and it's great for standard sized rooms. However, it can be less precise for irregular room shapes or larger spaces.

For a newbie, it's okay to experiment. Consider factors like room size, furniture moving, and the condition of the carpet. Also, check out what competitors in your area are doing. It's like peeking at someone else's poker cards. Wink

Finding your pricing groove takes time, be flexible and adjust as you go.
When I clean it, I mean it! :)

If it is for commercial, ALWAYS do it in person. Residential i try to do in person as much as possible. A demo increases your sales advantage significantly.
