Fee for Cleaning a New Construction House?

I just get my business license for cleaning houses, but I don't know how much to charge for those brand new houses the builder needs cleaned before the homeowner moves in. Can you tell me how much the rate for this job is?

You will need to ask around to find the going rate in your area. It ranges from $35 an hour (Seattle) to $10 an hour (Tacoma). These two towns are only 20 miles apart, so it can really vary. Search this site, there are some very good posts on charging for house cleaning.

Why not get more information, Sally? Have you been to a newly-constructed house? Have you any idea of sawdust and wood scraps or other construction materials laying around? Your quote will depend entirely on the trades people and the mess they leave behind. Some don't, but some do.


Take a close look at a couple of properties, please? Check for paint spatters on floors and counters, caulking in / around tubs as well as sinks, sawdust or manufacturer's labels on windows.

You may have to purchase special equipment, such as a heavy-duty vacuum cleaner, so take that into consideration as well.

Good luck!

I cleaned new construction houses. I charged 22 cents a square foot. It's been 8 or 9 years so there's most likely going to be an increase.

Research shows that the average hourly cleaning rate for U.S. maid services is in between $30 to $50per hour, so keep that in mind when getting quotes.
