Setting Housecleaning Fees?

Can you please suggest the prices for cleaning bathrooms, living room, and kitchen? These are the only rooms I will be cleaning twice a month.

There are different rates for different areas. Figure out an hourly rate and multiply that by the number of hours required to do the job.

I pay $20.00 an hour for 3 weeks out of the month for changing linens, vacuuming and dusting 2 bedrooms, 1 living room, my office, 2 bathrooms, kitchen and pantry. I do all deep-cleaning myself. I believe women have a tendency to undercharge their worth. I hired a bonded, self-employed woman who became a great friend of mine over the past years. She started only asking for $5.00 an hour 4 years ago and I was shocked that others were taking unfair advantage of her when cleaning companies are hiring out and charging a Minimum of $50.00 an hour in my rural area and paying their employees $8-10. Becoming bonded opens great opportunities to expand if you want to. Hope this helps- :) Liz

My cleaner charges $65 every two weeks for the spaces you listed (I have a small house).

You will probably receive so many different suggestions that it will be difficult for you to decide what to use.


First of all, your area of cleaning may be the biggest factor in what you should charge. Place the zip code of the area where the house is located in Google and add cleaning fees so you can see what others are charging in that area.
You may have to check several sites and then place some phone calls and ask what they will charge you to clean these areas.
Cleaning services have lots of variables in their prices according to area, size of rooms to be cleaned, one time or how often?, general cleaning or deep cleaning, your supplies or theirs, and sometimes even more factors.
You may need to know approximate size of rooms to be able to get an estimate.

You can check out some of the sites that offer advice on how to figure cost but you will have to figure your factors as all of these will be general instructions.


Has this client had cleaning services before? If so, do you know what they paid for the same services?
Do you think this will be an easy person to work for or will they be checking behind you every time you work (nit picking?)?

Things to consider:
Distance you have to travel.
How long do you think it will take you to clean each of these rooms.
Do they need a first deep cleaning? If so, maybe a higher first fee should be considered.
How bad do you need the job?
Is this going to be your only cleaning job or do you plan to go for other jobs?
Your cleaning supplies or theirs?
Work hours are reasonable for you?
Be sure everything expected of you is thoroughly discussed; such as cleaning windows? Deep cleaning refrigerator or stove? Mopping floors every time? And maybe other items...
