Pricing for hotels

New to owning my own pressure washing business. Was just wondering what everyone would charge for a 20,000 square foot hotel?

No less than $5.00 per sqft and a free nights stay with unlimited room service.

Always do the first hotel for free. That assures you get the next one. Charge $15 for it

Came to the right place, asked too soon. Sometimes you gotta figure it out the hard way

Not trying to be a jerk. You gave out absolutely no info. Not many people on here will give you any info on how to price something like this. There is so much that will go into your estimate and if you don’t know that, you should stick to residential until you get an idea oh how to complete a job like this. It’s pretty simple. If you price it correctly you will make a good amount of money and build your reputation as not a fly by night company. If you price it too low you will likely lose money. And if you’re too high you will not get the job. If I were you I’d contact a reputable company near by and let them have it. Then if you’re really nice they may teach you a thing or two.

I don’t know what 20,000 sq feet looks like, but I do know a Hampton Inn in a smallish town fetched $7100 and 3 free nights after lift expenses. Depends on lift rental for your area, if you’ve gotta get proper insurance, chemical delivery if you can’t carry it. So many things are dependent on the going rate of things for your area.

Also dependent on your experience and how you sell it. There’s no way to give you a ballpark with no pictures and no information.

Basically 2 story hotel with stucco walls. Mostly concrete walkways, stair walls, and entrance canopy. Small amount of dirt as well as some algae. The only walk ways that are extremely dirty is the main sidewalk out front. The only walls and ceilings to be washed are the breeze ways and canopy. Surface cleaner will get most of it and nothing should have to be scrubbed.

Whatever your daily commercial rate x amount of days you project it’ll take to complete I guess…

Commercial daily rate = (monthly business expenses/20 working days) + (daily commercial profit goal)

(Commercial daily rate X days to complete) + (Project specific expenses) = What you ask for.

On large stuff like that I like no less than $1700/day.

This is spot on. I like to be around 2000 per crew per day on commercial. Plus or minus a few hundred depending on the job.

As a new person myself, sounds like doing an entire hotel is way more than you’re ready for. I sure as heck wouldn’t be prepared for that, despite having a number of houses under my belt.

For me it would be
#number of hours to complete x $150/hr + expenses (lift, chemicals, fuel) = Quote

How I quote every job pretty much. If I get it fine, if I don’t its still fine. I don’t think or worry 2 seconds about it.
Move on to the next one.

PS. On something that size Id add prob $500-$1000 to final bid just for oh :poop: moments when nothing goes right or takes longer then you thought.
Just to be safe.:grinning:

Thanks for answering this question. Noticed your replies in many other threads. Serving others will exponentially grow your business. Competition is always healthy… However, service to others (problem solving) will always build up your reputation… no one can buy this. @squidskc @anon61323032 @Diamond_Soft_Wash
