How much would you pay a house cleaner to come in once a week?

I just can’t stay on top of my housework with my kids at home during the summer. How much would you offer to pay a house cleaner that comes once a week. I need some help with deep cleaning.


Ordered by those with the most votes.

  • I would say without the cleaner providing the cleaning supplies and equipment, and if the cleaner has enough experience, $15 an hour would be ample.

  • It really all depends on what you want to have done. I think, as someone who cleans houses, that $20 an hour is pretty fair. So depending on the amount of work it can be anywhere from $80-$160. A housekeeper is not something you really want to skimp on because you get what you pay for.

  • Hello family, The price depends on the size of the house and what you would like the house cleaner do. I notice that the price varies a lot. Some would charge more because they come with a team and some would clean but themselves. I know how hard is to keep up with kids, that is why we are here to help you :)
