I've taken on general floor care at a fairly large complex in my area, I have little experience in VCT comercial floor care. My employee who helps me with carpeta does janitorial at night. So we just did 3 strip and waxes at this complex, they really came out nice but I don't know what to charge. They would pay whatever number I put down but I want to keep it in the ballpark of what other companies may charge.
So the rooms were empty, 600-900 sqf each, Strip and 4 coats of Betco Hybrid. Any input would be appreciated!

Pricing can vary depending on where you are but for me .35 a sq ft for strip and wax is about the average rate. I typically charge .40 a foot. So with those numbers you'd have around $900 for those offices. I averaged them at 750 sq ft each.

You could also just charge by how many hours it took you plus your materials. So whatever you want to make an hour to be profitable, plus whatever you pay your helper, plus you materials and there's your total charge.
