What is the cost of having a house professionally cleaned?

Do you know a clean house has a great impact on our mental and physical health? It has been scientifically proven that cleanliness reduces your stress level and exhaustion. Not only this, clean homes increase your work efficiency, and productivity and keep you away from health issues. 

Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to manage home and office during weekdays. All we are left is with a weekend to relax and do other household chores.

The DIY Cleaning process is so tiring and time-consuming. And still, you won’t get satisfactory results even after spending so many hours of hard work. What if we tell you the house cleaning professionals can do the job for you and that too at an affordable price.

In this article, we’ll discuss the various benefits of having a clean house, and how much will it cost to hire a professional cleaner?

Factors that decide the cost of cleaning your house

#1. Hiring a Cleaning Company or Independent Contractor?

The first thing that you need to decide is to hire a contractor or cleaning company? Both have their own benefits and drawbacks. An individual cleaner can be inexpensive and you can also negotiate based on your personal relationships. But 100% satisfactory results are not guaranteed!

Whereas cleaning companies offer fixed cleaning packages and discount offers if applicable. It may cost you more, but the cleaners are experienced, and insured and give you 100% guaranteed visible results.

#2. Size and Condition

The most important parameter that affects the house cleaning cost. The larger and dirtier homes will cost you more while apartments or condos will cost you less. It depends on:

  •  the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, and kitchen conditions.
  • Square footage of your house.
  • The number of months the house was not cleaned, and
  • Cleaning products, tools, and supplies required.
  • The number of professional cleaners required.

#3. Homes with Pets and Kids

It’s a fact that kids and pets make the home messier. So, taking this an advantage, the cleaning companies will charge you slightly more than the regular packages. We think it’s fair enough as it takes lots of time to remove pet hairs, stains from carpets, and pet odor from the environment.

#4. Type of Cleaning Required

The type of cleaning service greatly affects the cost of a professional cleaning package. So, before hiring a house cleaner decide whether you are looking for:

  • Standard Cleaning 
  • Move-in/move out cleaning
  • Deep Cleaning
  • Post Construction/ Renovation Cleaning

Let’s see what each cleaning type includes, and which cleaning service is best for you!

Standard Cleaning

Does your house looks pretty good even without cleaning? So, routine cleaning will be the best option for you. You can hire the cleaning professionals weekly, monthly, bi-weekly, or weekly. The checklist includes:

  • Surface cleaning 
  • Counters Wiping
  • sweeping and mopping the floor
  • Carpet Vacuuming

  • Dusting individual knick-knacks
  • Wiping down ceiling fans.
  • Removing grime and grease from bathroom tiles.
  • Kitchen appliance cleaning, and others.

As deep cleaning takes lots of effort and time, it’s obvious the cleaning cost will be higher. Rest the cleaning companies use the square footage parameter to make a rough estimate. It will cost you between $35 to $60 per hour.
