Rates for Cleaning New Construction Homes

August 12, 2015

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.

What is the rate for a final interior cleaning of a 3,550 sq. ft. newly built home in Guelph, Ontario?

You will have to search in your area. In my area it would be around $250. It is more than a regular cleaning because there is a lot of dust and fingerprints left by the workers.

I suggest calling your small business development center and asking if they have these rates in their database:

www.ontario.ca/.../small-business-enterprise-centre...

The ones in Pittsburgh do for many, many types of businesses.

Something else I found is Indeed has info available to the public about going employee pay if you were to be hired by a company to clean for them. If you are going on your own, the rates can be up to 4 times the rate to cover your costs for insurance, travel, supplies, etc.

Wishing you all the best!

There is a lot of extra work in this job, with the dust and dirt. In my area people charge by the job, not by the hour. Calculate how many hours it will take you, and multiply that by the rate. It wouldnt hurt to investigate and see what your competition is charging for a similar job.

the best way to estimate cost is to consult with contractors in your area or contact Home Depot. Also to take into account are the age and materials of the house, and whether you can easily acquire needed permits

"Research shows that the average hourly cleaning rate for U.S. maid services is between $25 and $45 per hour, so keep that in mind when getting quotes." www.homeadvisor.com/.../

According to the above, and considering the nature of the work, you should try to get the upper end of that.

You can also go to chattanooga.craigslist.org/.../bbb to see what others in your area charge

I'm interested in starting a cleaning service that focuses primarily on new construction homes. I want to charge by the house, but I have no idea on how much to charge. Any ideas? Thanks.
