How much does domestic cleaning cost?

Aug 24, 2018

Most domestic cleaners charge based on an hourly rate. However, these rates can vary depending on several factors. The most common of these factors are outlined in the sections below.

Considerations

The Area You Are Cleaning

Do you need your cleaner to tackle your entire home from basement to attic or just the main floor? If you need your entire home cleaned it will understandably take longer than just cleaning the main floor. Not to mention that your cleaner will also use more cleaning supplies.

These considerations will then influence the overall cost. As a result, if you need to clean your entire home the cost will be higher.

Number of Bathrooms
Another factor that comes into play here is the number of bathrooms in your home. Bathrooms are generally more time-consuming to clean because they get dirty quite quickly.

So, the more bathrooms you have in your home the more it will cost to clean.

How Often You Tackle House Cleaning

When was the last time you cleaned your home? If you can’t remember, then your cleaner's first visit will most likely take a while. However, once your home is in tip-top shape it won’t take them quite so long to clean during future visits. So, depending on how frequently you clean, the cost of their first visit could be higher than future ones.

Your Pets

Pets are wonderful, but they can also be messy. If you haven't cleaned your home in a while and your furry friends have been running around chances are it is a little dusty. To get your home back in top shape, in spite of your furry friends, your cleaner will have to go the extra mile. To avoid this build-up in future ask your cleaner if they are open to scheduling regular visits.

Cleaning Packages

Regular House Cleaning Vs One-Time Visits
Do things tend to get out of hand quickly in your house? Then you should consider speaking to your cleaner about regular cleanings. A regular house cleaning will keep your house in top shape over a longer period of time.


Scheduling a regular house cleaning appointment with your cleaner can also reduce your overall cleaning cost. Some domestic cleaners offer discounted packages for clients who book a series of cleanings. If you’re interested in routine cleanings be sure to ask if discounted packages are an option.

The Length of Your House Cleaning Appointment

On average most professionals spend around 5.5 hours per house cleaning. However, this could easily vary depending on the frequency of your cleaning appointments. The more often cleaning services professionals visit your home, the cleaner it will stay, meaning that it won’t take as long to clean.

Location and Transportation

The location where your domestic cleaner operates out of can influence their rates as well. Cost of living, competitor rates and the cost of transportation from their home or office, to your’s will affect their rates. In areas where the cost of living is generally higher, it is reasonable to expect higher rate for house cleaning as well.

Experience

Whether your cleaning professional is a seasoned expert or new on the scene will also influence their rates. New cleaning professionals are generally more focused on obtaining experience and networking. Due to this, their rates are often more competitive.

However, that doesn’t mean you should discount seasoned professionals. Professionals who have worked in the industry for several years can bring their invaluable experience to each project. In the end, it is important to find a balance between cost and experience.

Cleaning Products

Generic, Speciality or Environmentally Friendly?

Cleaning products are the primary material cost that your cleaner needs to cover. So the type of product they choose will have a direct impact on their rates. Generic products are more often than not relatively inexpensive. Cleaners that use these products will have lower material costs to cover.

That doesn’t necessarily mean that these are the best products though. Specialty and environmentally friendly cleaning products are a great way to reduce your impact on the environment. Upon request, most cleaners are happy to use the cleaning products of your choice. However, these products do tend to be more costly. So you should expect higher rates when your cleaner is working with these.

Cleaning Company or Sole Trader?

Is your cleaner an independent sole trader or do they work for a larger cleaning company? There are pros and cons to hiring professionals in either situation. Many cleaning companies require background checks from their professionals, however, the pricing is more bureaucratic.

In contrast, sole traders have more control over their pricing, so their rates may be more competitive.

Anna has been so courteous, friendly and helpful throughout my highly unorthodox situation. I live in London and my property is in Glasgow and Anna never once questioned me or had any problem with collecting and dropping off keys and sending me pictures of the hideous mess left behind by my disgusting tenants. She couldn’t have been any nicer to work with and I will definitely be booking her in the future and recommending her company to everyone I know.
