Professional cleaners can spruce up dirty offices on an ongoing basis or during a one-time visit. Regardless of square footage or business type, Pros can handle most cleaning jobs, regardless of square footage or business type. Frequency, facilities and specifics of the job all affect the cost of office cleaning.
Most professional cleaners will do a walk-through before providing an estimate. In order to provide a good service, most cleaners need to see the space, including the floors, break rooms, gym, and they need to determine how dirty the office is to start with.
In general, the larger the office space, the more expensive cleaning it will be. Cleaning companies consider labor, cleaning products and time when calculating what it will take to clean a specific square footage.
Dirtiness is the main cost factor for a one-time cleaning. Most one-time customers of We’ll Do It Cleaning in Atlanta, Georgia, are smaller companies or startups that are just moving into a space and want to start fresh. We’ll Do It Cleaning charges $150–$200 for a one-time cleaning of a 2,000- to 3,000-square-foot office space.
After a walk-through, most cleaning companies offer a set price. We’ll Do It Cleaning’s set rates include the cost of labor and cleaning supplies as well as overhead costs such as insurance, worker’s compensation, payroll taxes and company vehicles.

Window cleaning services generally increase the overall cost of cleaning. Not all companies provide this service. Some companies that clean windows charge by the window, and others roll the cost into the total cleaning fee.
Bathrooms and kitchen
The greater the number of bathrooms, the higher the cost. Bathrooms and kitchens are high-traffic areas that require an extra level of sanitation and attention to detail.
