You might want to think about charging per room or per task, or perhaps think of a list of regular duties that will be included in your basic clean such as floors swept/vacuumed/mopped, dusting, dishes, counter tops, bathrooms. What I would do is come up with a list of duties that you will do for each room of the house in which you will be cleaning and be considered your basic clean package. This is what you will do for the client every time you come, then add on to that for extra things that dont necessarily need to be done every time but just so often or on request. These extras can be things like changing the bed linens, cleaning out the fridge, laundry, window washing. For your basic clean you want to figure in what the supplies will cost for everything you need and you need to figure how long it should take you to do the work.


How much do you want to make an hour? Say $10.00 per hour for example, so with your supplies lets just say it cost $20.00 and your gas to get there and home $10.00 Lets say it takes you 3 hours to do what you have come up with for the basic clean with everything added together thats $60.00 and then you add on for extra rooms, extra chores ect It is kind of hard to say how much you should just charge per hour because some people clean really fast and others really slow. What might seem like a very long day cleaning to you might look like you could of done more with the time you had to the customer, Usually it always will because your on their dime. With a set price per job they know what they are getting and what you expect to be paid. This also helps you not be taken advantage of by people making you do really grueling work for little to no money by the hour. Best of luck.
