This allows them to give new customers a general idea of what their services will cost, based on experience and the estimated time and labor required to a home cleaner in  offers average starting rates for three tiers of cleaning services based on level of cleanliness the customer requires:

Standard Cleaning$100
Deep Cleaning$125
Move Out Cleaning$125

Price per Square Foot

Most house cleaning companies charge by the hour or by number of bedrooms and bathrooms, but some charge by the square foot. The more square footage to be cleaned, the higher your overall costs will be. A company may charge different rates per square foot depending on the type of cleaning service they are providing.

A cleaning company in Dallas, Texas charges 5 cents per square foot for standard cleaning and 10 cents per square foot for deep cleaning. A 3,000-square-foot house would cost $150 where a deep cleaning would cost $300.

Price per Bedroom

The number of bedrooms you have in your house will play a role in determining cleaning costs. If your cleaning company bases their rates on number of rooms, rather than square footage, your room count matters. Even if your place is only 800 square feet, your cleaning costs will vary depending on whether it's a studio apartment or a two-bedroom house.

Number of bedrooms can often indicate how many people live in the home and how relatively clean or dirty it might be. Usually customers want bedding changed and beds made up, which requires extra time and effort the more bedrooms there are, thus driving up your cost. If you have spare bedrooms that are not being used on a regular basis, you can negotiate with your house cleaners to vacuum and dust the rooms on a less frequent basis, thereby saving you money. Sometimes depending on  size of bathrooms has base starting rates for their cleaning services that increase with each additional bedroom and bathrooms. 

Here are some prices for  standard cleaning services:

House Cleaning Cost Per Bedroom (1 bathroom) starting cost:

1 bedroom$110
2 bedrooms$126

Sometimes we  estimates their prices based on number of bathrooms:

BedroomsBathroomsStarting Cost

A typical standard bathroom cleaning service will include sweeping, mopping, scrubbing the sink and polishing the faucet, wiping the counters, cleaning the mirror(s), scrubbing the shower or tub and polishing the faucet fixtures, and disinfecting the toilet and toilet bowl. This is why having more bathrooms in your home will usually increase the overall cleaning cost. Some cleaning companies charge more for additional bathrooms than they do for additional bedrooms.

How Much Do Cleaners Charge Per Hour?

Some cleaning companies charge an hourly rate based on the number of cleaners:

One Cleaner$20-$30/hr
Two Cleaners$20-$50/hr
Three or more CleanersCost varies per company

We may charge an hourly rate based on the number of cleaners required for your job. For two cleaners on site, they charge $30 per hour. For one cleaner on site, they charge $20 per hour. Also charge an additional $15 per room to clean windows and an additional $20 per room to clean sliding doors.

Some cleaning companies charge an hourly rate, which means the price you pay for each visit can vary with just how dirty your house is that week. Typically, house cleaning companies that do charge by the hour will provide you a walk-through before you hire them. The walk-through allows them to see the size, layout and general cleanliness of your house, and give you an estimate of what a one-time or first-time cleaning will cost as well rates for ongoing services, whether weekly, bi-monthly, or monthly. Typically their hourly rate stays the same, but the one-time or first-time cleaning will cost more because it takes more time. Your cleaning costs will usually be consistent from week to week or month to month, unless you have a particularly messy part or other unusual situation.

Cleaning companies may categorize specific services differently, so always go over the specifics of each cleaning job with the cleaning company before work begins, and ask about prices for special requests. Be sure to get a copy of your agreement in writing with an outline of the day and general time of the cleaning and what tasks will be covered.


How Much Does Move Out Cleaning Cost?

Move out cleaning costs $160-$250 on average for a 2-bedroom apartment or house. The cost will be higher if cleaners have to spend extra time removing carpet stains or wall marks.


Eco-Friendly Cleaning Supplies

Many house cleaning companies provide services using green products that are easier on the environment and on humans. The going rate for eco-friendly supplies is $5 or $10 extra per cleaning.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), many cleaning products, especially industrial-strength cleaning products, are known to contain toxic chemicals that are harmful to adults, children, and the environment. In fact, "cleaning products can present several health and environmental concerns. They may contain chemicals associated with eye, skin, or respiratory irritation, or other human health issues," according to the EPA. This makes choosing a green company particularly attractive, especially if you have a young child or someone with a compromised immune system in the house. It's also better for the health of the cleaners who work directly with the products every day. You may pay slightly higher prices if you opt to work with a company that is solely green or that offers green products as an option.


Individual House Cleaner vs Cleaning Company

Individual house cleaners often charge less than house cleaning companies. Larger cleaning companies usually have more standardized pricing models, are more likely to be bonded and insured, and often perform background checks on their employees. You may decide that the convenience and trust of working with a company is worth the cost.

Many larger cleaning companies have uniforms for their staff, company cars, and standard procedures for cleaning a client's home. You are more likely to receive a written contract with a larger company than an individual who may operate more informally. The formal structure and processes of a larger company can result in a higher cost to do business, which can translate to higher prices for customers. However, a larger company may also have more convenient services, such as scheduling via an app, that you may consider worth the additional cost. Many companies do both residential and commercial cleaning, so make sure you specify that you'd like home cleaning.

Although many individual house cleaners don't have formal systems such as ready-made checklists of what they do at specific price points, don't hesitate to ask for what you want. Most small businesses are happy to work with you in a more structured way if you desire. Even if they don't offer, it's always wise to ask for a written agreement with your individual contractor. This can include the cost for services, what specific cleaning tasks are included for the price, days and times they are scheduled to clean, and other details you find to be important. The best working relationships are always based on clear communication and clearly stated expectations.


How to Hire a Great House Cleaner

  • Ask for referrals. Ask for referrals from friends who have used the same cleaning service over time.
  • Choose a company that's bonded and insured. This protects you and your property in case of theft or damage.
  • Hire a licensed company. This means they are legally registered to operate as a business.
  • Conduct a phone interview. Ask them how long they have been in business and ask for recommendations.
  • Compare prices. A company that offers a wildly low price may not be operating legitimately.
  • Develop a relationship. If you're working with a larger company, request that the same crew come each time. This creates consistency and accountability.
  • Prevent temptation. Lock up valuables like jewelry, cash and credit cards.
  • Consider security. Electronic locks with one-time use codes are handy for giving house cleaning services access to your home while also protecting your privacy.
  • Agree on a fair price Discuss how you'd like your home cleaned, and work with your cleaner on setting a reasonable price.


How to Save Money on House Cleaning

3 tips to save money on house cleaning:

  • Book regular cleanings. Rates can be lower if you sign up for a once-a-week or every-other-week service instead of once a month.
  • Purchase your own supplies. You can save $5-$10 per cleaning by providing your own cleaning supplies.
  • Choose only certain services. Excluding services like laundry, dusting, or window cleaning can save cleaners time and save you money.

Should I Tip My Housekeeper?

Customers are split on whether to tip house cleaners. Individual cleaners may expect a 10-15% tip but the customer should decide based on quality of service.


Benefits of Regular House Cleaning

Hiring a professional home cleaning service can prevent stress, help control allergies caused by indoor irritants and make for a happy, healthy home.

House cleaning can be a real chore, with so much dust and dirt, all that heavy cleaning equipment, and the time it takes — time you need to spend working, taking care of your kids, traveling or volunteering. It's an additional challenge if you have any kind of mobility issues. And you can't just do it once and be done; your house demands cleaning again and again. Fortunately, regular cleaning services are no longer an unattainable luxury. In fact, budgeting in a weekly cleaning service or maid service on a regular basis can be worth the investment for the additional freedom and time you get back.

Whether you need a one-time cleaning service or want to set up a recurring service, professional house cleaning is available for all types of properties. Hire a house cleaner to handle your private homes, rental properties, multi unit buildings, businesses, rental move-ins or move-outs, homes for sale, event and party cleanup, and much more. In fact, the more you have your house cleaned, the lower the cost per cleaning usually is, as it's easier to keep your home clean with regular cleaning visits than with intensive efforts once or twice a year.

The cost to hire cleaning professionals can depend on how large your home is (how many sq ft), how many rooms you have, how thorough a cleaning your house needs, how many bathrooms you have, and how often you want your place cleaned. The number of bathrooms will increase your home cleaning price because bathrooms are dirtier and require more effort to clean than other parts of your home. Home size will always affect cost, but if you make an exceptional mess on a regular basis, your cost may be higher even for a tiny space than for a larger home that's kept cleaner between visits. Geographic location also plays a role in how much you'll pay for house cleaning. Services in cities like San Francisco and Manhattan will be more expensive than services in smaller towns with a lower cost of living. The costs charged by house cleaning companies in high-cost areas account for higher insurance rates, higher costs to operate company vehicles, higher labor rates and more. Many cleaning companies also offer special services such as eco-friendly cleaners, carpet cleaning, and special rates for biweekly cleaning packages or post-construction cleaning. Most cleaners also offer free estimates for a thorough cleaning and itemized.

Property Preservation

 
 Work Orders are issued when a bank asks the contractor to visit a property owned by the bank for a particular reason. This can be to either complete a work, to report the condition of the property or to provide bids to repair damages. Some type of work orders, such as lawn maintenance, are recurring, as in they will be continuously issued after a certain period to be completed again. Below are some examples of certain type of work order types and what in general, the order is to be completed for:

Grass Cut Orders: They are issued in the Grass Season, which for most states starts from April 1st and ends at October 31st. In some states such as Texas the season will start from March 1st while in others like in Florida it is all year around. Grass cut orders are recurring, as they are issued twice each month, the first time it is issued in the start of the season it is called "Initial Grass Cut" where except for completing work all bids regarding the exterior of the property has to be also submitted. Additional work may also be completed in this order such as "Shrub Trimming" and "Debris Removal". All other orders issued after that are "re cuts" whereby the contractor will only the cut the grass to keep it maintained and no other bids will have to be provided given that no new issues arise in the vacant property.

Snow Removals: Snow Removal Work orders only come in the winter season for certain states, as the name implies the order is to remove the snow that accumulates in the Driveway, Walkway and the Sidewalks of these vacant properties as well as to spread salt over these areas so as to prevent formation of ice.

Maid Service: Maid Service orders are also a type of recurring orders issued only on REO properties (we will get back to what REO is on a later video). Similarly to grass cuts, the first time a maid service is issued for a property is the "Initial Maid Service" and while all those that follow the initial are called "Recurring Maid Service" or just "Maid Service". Some alternative names for Maid Service can be, "Janitorial" or "Broom Sweeping". Again, as the name implies, the order is to complete the cleaning of the interior of the property. The crew visiting the property will: broom sweep and mop the floors, clean the toilets and kitchen appliances, clean all cabinets, counter tops, doors and windows, dust the ceiling, and place three air fresheners, with dates of the day they placed it, in the property.

Winterizations: These orders are issued mostly from October 1st to April 31st. They are a type of work order whereby the contractor is asked to turn off the water supply of the property and drain all water and pour liquid antifreeze on all toilets and drains to prevent the plumbing from getting freeze damage in winter. A detailed guide will follow regarding Winterization on a later video.

Initial Secures: Initial Secures are issued after the property becomes vacant, for the most part, it will be the first time that the crew visits the property. A full property condition report with detailed reports on the damages and bids needed will have to be submitted in this work order. All Initial Secures will ask the contractor to change knob lock and deadbolt on the side or back door of the property and install padlocks to secure shed, garage or fence gates as well as to install a lockbox for keeping the keys in. Depending upon the season, contractors will also be asked to winterize the property and complete a grass cut. In REO properties additional work may also be completed such as maid service, trash out (complete debris removal), and installing CO and smoke detectors, etc.

Re-secure: If a property becomes unsecured, which may happen due to various reasons, such as someone entering and damaging the locks, or keeping the doors and windows open, a re-secure order is issued to secure the property again. Work that maybe completed in such orders are to change locks, if they are no longer operable, securing with existing locks if someone simply kept the door or window open, or to board doors or windows if they have been broken.
