House Cleaning Price

What is a reasonable price for a 5 bedroom 2 bath house? Two levels. We need just 2 bedrooms picked up, organized and vacuumed. Kitchen cleaned and mopped. Maybe do dishes if there are dishes that need done. Need counters, oven, stove, microwave and table cleaned. Have a dishwasher. Living room needs picked up, dusted and vacuumed. Bathroom needs deep cleaned, swept and mopped. Laundry room will need to swept and moped.  My youngest son's bedroom needs toys picked up, organized and vacuumed. The other bedrooms only need dusting vacuum and light organization.  Need to take out the trash in kitchen, bathrooms. Can use my cleaning supplies, broom and mop. Needs to bring their own vacuum. Looking for a one time cleaning for right now but my be interested in a once a month or bi-weekly depending on cost.

Hello - I just want to ask a question as well... since your question included - must provide own vacuum. I clean for an exterminator and according to him, bed bugs are extremely bad at this time and not only hard, but extremely expensive to get rid of. They do not discriminate between clean/dirty/rich/poor....Knowing this - would you still want someone to bring a vacuum into your home that they may have used in a home that unknowingly had bed bugs? Just curious as sometimes I am asked to provide my own vacuum, but for the most part my clients want me to use theirs. Now to answer your question - I would charge $150-175 for a first time cleaning and $100 for bi-weekly or once per month $125. You didn't mention if you had any pets inside the home...this may affect the cost.

Two level house ...I would think that would still take around 5 hours or even longer especially if the kid's room needs to be picked up and organized. No less than $100. I'd say $120 flat.

For most of my 5 bedroom customers its varies between 150-250 per clean. All depends on how your home is, how you live, how time consuming the job at hand is. When you start adding in organization in the same day of cleaning your prices can be higher.

I would charge $175 for the 5 bedroom 2 bath one time clean. The maintenance cleans would be cheaper and based on how often I came.

$100 for 5 hours would be reasonable and a way to get it done right. And for that price you should for sure check references and read reviews on their profile. Follow your gut and ask them lots of questions during the walkthrough, in each room ask them what they would do and see if it matches your needs. You should make sure you get your moneys worth.

This sounds like a square footage and list that would take a majority of the day, I would estimate $300 for the whole house. For these tasks, I would also recommend a "deep clean" once a month to supplement the daily tasks that may not take time if your housekeeper is able to have time to focus on specific areas to deep clean (microwave, oven, bathrooms), which can be more tedious and need more energy and focus, unlike a more simple task such as vacuuming.

I would say to start it would be $30-$45 per hour. There is a lot of deep cleaning and organizing. I would say it would take more than 8 hours, possibly 16 hrs. If after the deep cleaning it was kept pretty clean, I would say $25/hr. This depends on what part of the US you are in. Midwest does not pay as well as the east coast. I am in the Midwest.

It would be 250 because you have 5 bedrooms at $30 each thats if you really want a thorough job and the kitchen would be 30 also and 2 bathrooms would be $20 each x 2 would be 40. This would be a total of 250 but I would give you a break and do it for 210.Good luck All the best Vera.S

Doing this a very long time, I charge by the hour- assuring the homeowner that as much as possible gets done in the time/ rate required. I used to charge for a whole house and most times didn't make minimum wage. Every house is different.

JUST is the significant word that we as professional housekeepers chuckle at. If it is "just" this and "just" that, then why don't you do it yourselves, we chuckle about! No seriously, you need to find someone with an hourly rate who comes in FIRST to give you an estimate. I do not take on a client until I am able to do a deep clean first which takes more than one day. Always allow them to use their own products as they know which products work best on what surfaces and have familiarity with them vs your products which will take more time to test and use. Remember, you will always get what you are willing to pay for!! Yes you CAN find cheaper cleaning people, but they only do surface cleaning and do more than one home in a day. Ask your friends for referrals. Then check the references of whoever you are considering hiring.

Hello. I say this home would take roughly 3-4 hours for initial cleaning and once a month cleaning. Twice a month cleaning maybe 2-3 depending on how dusty and cluttered. Most would charge no less than 12/hr but you are probably looking to pay closer to 15/hr. I hope this helps. Good Luck!

Hello, As a housekeeper myself I would typically charge someone around $120 dollars for that kind of house. Bigger homes with more rooms and bath rooms are more money. Or you can see if the housekeeper would want to do an hourly rate of $15-20 an hour rather than a flat rate. If you're around the port jervis, eldred, monticello, orange or sullivan county area I would actually be able to help you. Shoot me a message if you're able to. (:

Each home has different needs and it's not easy to make an accurate assessment of how long the job might take (and thus, the cost) until it's been done once. Additionally, the first time cleaning a home usually takes longer than subsequent cleanings will. I would say, based on my experience and usual 1st time hourly rate, a reasonable, estimated price range for first time cleaning of 5 bedrooms(I'm not sure if all 5 or only 3 need to be cleaned so this estimate includes 5), 2 baths, living room & laundry room as indicated above would be $275-$350. Other deciding factors are the size of the home/rooms, level of dirt, stairs, etc. I hope this helps!

I charge $20 - $25.00 per hour and I would probably need 4 to 5 hours to have your house cleaned thoroughly. $125.00 tops, is my estimate.

For me personally, I would not share my prices here publicly, however, I do have very reasonable prices some people say I do not charge enough, but my goal is to be fair and I am not trying to make my client go broke. If you choose to have regular cleanings, the prices would be discounted even more.

For a once a month clean, I'd say $150 is pretty fair. Bi weekly will keep you closer to the $100 mark unless you find someone who is just starting out and only charges $10-$15 per hour. Be wary of these people though, it's good to give them a chance but the job might end up half done. However, if you spend the extra $5 or $10 per hour for a more experienced person, it will get done so much better! Only pay someone that extra $5-$10 if they bring their own supplies though!!! I have a professional vacuum that costs $400 and a steam mop that cost me $120 plus my Norwex rags, etc. I've invested about 2K in my business this year! Therefore, I charge $25 for a one time or every 3 weeks+ clean. I charge $20 per hour for weekly or biweekly cleans though.

The FIRST TIME will always be more money. The house needs a deep cleaning. For a house like that I would charge you $250 for the first time, then $20 to $25 per hour to maintain every time I comeback.

First of all, I would meet the client and complexity of the job. It sounds like a charge of $15-20 an hour would be acceptable. However, everything is negotiable.

If the house is that big your best bet is for your housekeeper to charge by the hour. That way if its not too much you keep your cost lower then getting a flat rate. For example my rate is 35/hr. Normally to clean a house like that and to deep clean all the bathrooms and detail everything else you just asked it can run anywhere from 5-7 hours.about 245-300 depending on extras that you may have scheduled with me.

I would say pay by the hour. Start at $12 and if they seem to be worth that and more then the rate can change..but usually pay is between 10-15 hourly.

I would charge $200- 250, depending on what does the son's room looks like, and how much it needs to be organized. If there is a bunch to organize through out the home, then the price just might have to go up. Or there could be a discussion on how many hours it would take. Then it would be $20 per hour.

Well it mainly depends on how long it might take, since you are allowing them to use most of your cleaning supplies that helps greatly, a decent starting price usually would be at least $9/hr some people may charge more, but it varies.

17 an hour for that size of a house is reasonable and you can either spread the times needed a day out or do a full day which may take 5 to 7 hours to do.

I would say $30 hr sounds fair for a 4 hrs at a time just to see how much can actually get done. picking up seems simple but is also time-consuming in its own way and takes away from the actual cleaning depending on how much picking up there needs to be dome

personally, I would have to say a price to do a 5 bedroom 2 bath house for a one time clean, depending on how many hours and if there's only 1 person cleaning, I would have to judge around $300 for the one time. Now if you do want to set up a monthly or bi-weekly clean, it'll be a little cheaper if you do an hourly rate for someone after you get the one time cleaning done.

I would imagine that this would be a entire day spent cleaning such a large home. I would definitely charge at least between $150-$200. At least for the initial cleaning. Is this a one time thing or ongoing?

I don't recommend for housekeepers to bring or use their own vacuum in my house. You don't know what kind of critters they may bring in the house. Such as fleas and bed bugs so hard to get rid of and pin point how they got into house

A reasonable price depends on whom you get to do the job, what supplies they need to bring, what tools they bring, how far they travel, and most of all, how long it takes them. Paying by the hour is the usual way it's done. If you have the same things done all the time, then you will know basically how long it takes your cleaning person to do it all. And different people work at different speeds. Like with everything, speed and details are frequently a "get what you pay for" thing. Good luck :)

$150 seems like a reasonable price to me. I am a college student at Augusta University looking to make some extra money for school and to pay rent. I love to clean, so spending a day cleaning up and organizing your home will be a lot of fun for me. Being a college student, I have a flexible schedule and may take one or two days to complete all of these tasks, but I will do so to the best of my ability. I can provide my own vacuum, and would be available to do this again in a few months if need be. I am new to care.com so I don't have any experience but I am meticulous and organized, and would definitely be up for the challenge!
