If you really want to kick your carpet cleaning business into high gear, you really need to start bidding on commercial contracts at any given point in time. A big part of the reason why that is the case has to do with the fact that commercial contracts help you earn a great deal more than residential ones, and perhaps the best possible gig that you can get in this category is a hotel cleaning job in some way, shape or form.
Suffice it to say that hotels are willing to pay almost double the standard rate for carpet cleaning since the state of their rugs will have a strong impact on their reputation in the wider industry. If you are trying to acquire a contract for carpet cleaning, bear in mind that a single hotel hallway will cost about three to five hundred dollars in terms of carpet washing services. That means that three big hotel hallways should ideally net you somewhere in the region of one thousand and five hundred dollars, although this can go as high as two thousand as well if you play your cards right.
You might want to at the very least consider bidding lower than this though, especially if you are still relatively new to the niche that we are discussing in the here and now. A five to ten percent lower than average bid will make you more visible to hotels looking for professional carpet cleaners, and that can increase your chances of nabbing a contract that can help your enterprise remain solvent for a good two months if not more so it’s worth a shot.
