Would "may I help you clean the walls" be acceptable?

In english, "can I" means "am I actually able to/ capable of doing" something. We are always taught to say "may I" which is a question of desire to do something. As in may I help. In general speech either would be OK but the latter in this instance is gramatically correct.
