What impacts cleaning costs?

Many factors can impact the rate of a cleaner. The city you live in and the type of clean you’re looking for all impact your final cost. The most common factors that cleaners use when preparing a quote are:


  • The different costs of living in certain areas of the country can impact the cost of hiring a housekeeper.

Types of Cleaning Services

  • Different types of cleaning services have different prices depending on the work required. Read below for more information about the different types of cleaning services.


  • We all love our furry friends, but they sure do shed! Expect to pay a bit more if you have a furry family member. Especially if you need to have upholstery cleaned.

Cleaning Products

  • The quote you receive can also be impacted by the types of cleaning products that your cleaner uses. Using certain brands or eco-friendly products can impact the final quote. Another factor is if you need your cleaner to provide their products or use the ones you have on hand.

Years of Experience

  • A cleaner with many years of experience and a strong brand and reputation may charge higher rates than a cleaner new to the industry.

Cleaning Frequency

  • Many cleaners will offer a discount for more regular cleaning. The more frequently you work with a cleaner, the lower the cost per clean.

Different types of cleaning services

Maintenance Clean

  • Do you normally keep your house in good shape or regularly work with a cleaner? Then you’re in luck! A maintenance clean is usually the cheapest cleaning option and is typically a surface-level clean. Dust beware!

Moving Clean

  • If you’re planning an upcoming move, then a moving clean is right for you. This type of cleaning is typically done at your new location before you move in. There’s nothing better than moving into a clean home.

Deep clean

  • The most thorough option out there is the deep clean. This is normally the most expensive option, but you get everything you pay for and more. This type of cleaning service involves getting into every nook and cranny of your home leaving it spotless from top to bottom.

Different types of payment models

Each housekeeper has their own method for determining their quote. Here are some of the most common ways we’ve found:

Per hour

  • If the cleaner you’re working with charges per hour, expect to see a minimum number of booking hours per session.

Per square foot

  • This is one of the most accurate payment models for estimating your final costs. But the downside is that not everyone has their home’s square footage on hand.

Per bedroom

  • This is the most common method of estimating your costs. But it can also be the most inaccurate depending on the other cleaning tasks involved such as your kitchen, bathrooms, etc. That being said, it’s a great starting point that we recommend for most homeowners.

Keep in mind that many cleaners use these payment models as a starting point for providing you with a price. Always confirm with your housekeeper what the final cost will be!
