Davida from Newark, Ohio
We just rented a house and since we live 1 hour away we asked the new renters if they were interested in doing it and they said yes.
It is a large house 4 bedrooms 2 baths with full half completed basement.
So we credited them $200 for the cleaning.
They are happy and we are happy. (05/03/2007)

I owned and operated a cleaning company for several years. My advice to the first request is call for local pricing in your area. It is different all over, the base price for a deep cleaning in Florida is 16 cents a square foot with carpet. This is for a professional to come in and do it. As for the women wanting to help her neighbor, I would consider 7 to 8 dollars an hour fair but by doing it by the hour, if you clean slow it may take a few weeks/cleanings to get the whole place in tip top shape. Explain that to your neighbor. Tell her you'll focus on one room per cleaning until you get it all under control. (05/08/2007)

They do it by the square foot around here. Generally 8-10 cents a square foot. (07/27/2007)

There is a BIG difference between DEEP cleaning and MAINTENANCE cleaning. Deep cleaning is VERY involved. Once the house is clean... it doesn't take alot of effort to keep it clean (unless you are cleaning for people who do not pick up after themselves AT ALL! So it really all depends what kind of people you are cleaning for.
On average this is what I charge.
DEEP cleaning - $20/hour
MAINTENANCE cleaning - $12/hour (07/28/2007)
