House Cleaning Charges?

I have been staying with my friend and her family since the beginning of June. Mind you I am normally not home and when I was I would be cleaning. I vacuumed twice a day every day I was there. I did a detail cleaning of both master and hall bathrooms. I cleaned 2 of the bedrooms, one of which took me 2 hours to clean. I did the dishes once or twice a week, even though I never ate or used any dishes. I did quite a few loads of their laundry. I also dusted the whole house everyday. And now they have kicked me out and refuse to pay, even after agreeing to pay for everything I did. I was there for 23 days, what should I charge for everything I did?

You do not provide any reasons why they "kicked" you out without paying you.

A bit of reality here: Did your friend and you complete an agreement for what you were supposed to do and how much they would pay you BEFORE you started living with them? If you do not have an agreement, on paper or in computer, you have no records that can prove they would pay you a specific amount for specific services.

Re fees for your service-You do not provide your specific location so it is difficult to recommend a fee for specific services. House cleaning varies tremendously from city to city and state to state. Unfortunately, you can charge any amount for your services and if they don't pay you anything, you have little legal recourse except Small Claims Court. Here, again, you have no records to prove anything.


Good Luck!!!

pay you for cleaning? what did you pay them for staying there? how many days were they allowing you to stay? did you overstay your welcome? did the 'rent' and the 'cleaning fees' cancel each other out?

It's a shame your friends don't feel the need to live up to their agreement. However, you got a free room and did household chores to pay for it. So, basically, you're even.


A hotel room for that amount of time would have cost you quite a bit.
I think your expectations are unreasonable.

I paid $450 a month. Included the room water and electric. But was kicked out before I was there a full month.

Something is missing here-you paid $450 to stay 1 month (or more?) and you expect someone to pay you for the cleaning, etc.?
Was there a written agreement for anything?
Did you agree to provide specific cleaning services and also paid $450 before you moved in?
Did you actually volunteer cleaning but now expect them to pay for your services because they kicked you out?


Why did they kick you out?
