How Much Does a Maid Service Cost?


By ProMatcher Staff



Cost of House Cleaning Services

The average cost of house cleaning is about $100 per visit for a typical 4-bedroom house. However, there are several factors that impact the cost of having your home cleaned by a professional service. This article will help you understand the cost of maid services.

1. Where do you live? The cost of living in your area can greatly impact the cost of hiring a maid service. The cost will increase in major cities, and it should be a bit cheaper in smaller towns. Use ProMatcher’s cost report to find the cost in your area.

2. Cleaning supplies and equipment. Do you have a vacuum that the cleaners can use? A mop, broom, and dustpan? Will you purchase the necessary cleaning supplies? You may be able to save a few dollars by purchasing the supplies yourself. The service will be able to provide a list of the products that they will need for each visit.

3. What’s included? The cleaning service should dust, mop floors, empty trash cans, vacuum carpets, wipe down bathroom surfaces (sinks, toilets, tubs, etc.), tidy up bedrooms, and clean the kitchen. Before hiring any service, make sure to ask what’s included and what’s extra, in order to avoid surprises. For example, window cleaning may incur an additional charge.

4. Size of your home. As a general rule, larger homes will cost more to clean. The number of rooms or square footage of the home will help to determine the cost of the cleaning service. If you have a large basement that needs to be cleaned, this will add to the cost of each visit.

5. Frequency of visits. The first cleaning visit tends to be more expensive, especially if your home has not been cleaned recently. Follow-up visits will be a little more affordable. How often will your home be cleaned? Just once? Weekly? Monthly? You may be able to save some money by signing a service contract.

6. Pets. Pet owners should expect to pay a little more for home cleaning services. The cleaners will need additional time to remove pet stains and vacuum up pet hair.
