Check out some of the practical and profitable features below to see how they can make your work easier and your business better.


Can’t get a list of detailed building measurements? No problem. You’ll love our convenient Express feature. Just enter an estimate of the size of the building (total cleanable area) and Express will instantly load bid measurements, fixture (toilet, urinal, sink) counts as well as floor types (waxable, non wax, carpet). While they’re loaded automatically, you can easily adjust them if you’d like.

Mobile Apps

Whether your favorite tool is a Smartphone, Android tablet or iPad - our mobile app makes it easy to take CleanBid with you wherever you go. That’s right, because it’s cloud based, you’ll be able to impress prospects and save time by entering measurements directly into the mobile app during your building walkthrough.

Price Recommendations

Get specific pricing recommendations based on our research and over 25 years of real world experience to help you competitively and profitably bid any kind of cleaning job. From specific price per month suggestions in janitorial to price-per-square-foot ranges for specialty services, such as carpet and window cleaning, as well as tile maintenance, CleanBid has you covered.

Proposal Customization

Imagine these possibilities. Insert your logo on the cover page and cover letter. Include your current insurance certificates as well as attachments to emails. Edit any section of the proposal’s pre-written language to create a customized cleaning proposal that showcases you and your cleaning company’s brand.

QuickBooks Export

Instantly export important contact information such as client name, address, email, and telephone number directly to QuickBooks for customer billing.


Highlight and support your proposed cleaning program using the detailed set of reports (Area Hours, Job Specifications and Measurement Summary) you’ll get automatically for every cleaning job you’re bidding on.

Bid Management

Keep your customer contacts, bids and notes, as well as walk-through, presentation and follow-up appointments organized and easily accessible. You’ll be able to view all of your bid data too including measurements, floor types and fixture counts as well as other factors such as difficulty and wage rate assumptions.

Area/Room Measurements

List all area and room measurements by actual dimensions or simply total size, along with floor type and detailed description for easy reference. Plus, you can change, add or remove measurements as needed if building occupancy or customer requirements change.


Unlike other janitorial bidding software that relies on over-simplified, one-size-fits-all, square feet per hour estimates, CleanBid performs actual work loading calculations by cleaning task and reflecting the specific area, frequency, floor type – to give you a specific hours/day time recommendation.

Cleaning Tasks

Instantly add or remove cleaning duties in seconds. Easily edit the wording of tasks to create a highly customized set of job specifications. Plus, you’ll be able to adjust cleaning difficulty and frequency by area. Finally, keep track of building fixtures such as toilets, urinals and sinks as well as other items such as walk off floor mats and coffee stations - by area.

Work Tickets

Simplify how you manage your cleaning operations by using convenient work tickets. They can be printed out for your staff to follow or posted to the janitor closet door as a convenient task schedule employees can quickly check to see which duties should be performed on which nights. Plus, supervisors and specialty cleaning crews can use them to keep track of important access codes and job requirements unique to the building they’re going to.

Average Wage Calculator

Update your wage figure to reflect multiple hourly rates as well as differences in the number of hours per to be worked by employee for the job you’re bidding on - resulting in a valuable weighted, average wage. When the janitorial job you’re bidding on requires more than one cleaning employee, it’s nice to be able to quickly calculate an average wage. With easy access on the Price tab, you instantly can have an accurate average wage figure for the job you’re bidding on.

Proposal Attachments

Customize your next bid by adding up to three (3) one page documents to your proposal. Highlight important advantages of doing business with your cleaning company. You can include a current insurance certificate, equipment product brochure or maybe a recent client testimonial or review.

Email Attachments

Delight your next prospect by adding one or more informative email attachments. It’s easy to do – and seeing your email arrive with one or more supporting documents attached describing some important policy, procedure or benefit of your cleaning business – can instantly set you apart from your competition.

Day Porter

Want to add a Day Porter Service to your next office cleaning bid? You can. Simply enter the frequency and hours per day – and you’ll instantly have a provision for a professional day porter highlighted in your cleaning proposal. Day porter hours will be added to the total time on the Price page and a professional set of duties will be automatically added to the Job Specifications.
