House cleaning service (sometimes called maid service) varies in cost according to frequency of service, condition and size of home. Prices are generally based either on the number of rooms, the square footage or by the hour.

Typical costs:

Related articles: Carpet Cleaning, Window Cleaning, Cleaning Window Drapes, Cleaning Window Blinds, Area Rug Cleaning or Restoration, Duct Cleaning

What should be included:
  • A typical regular cleaning includes vacuuming, dusting, scrubbing sinks, floors, countertops and range hoods. Some services include loading the dishwasher and changing bed linen. Generally, a cleaning service will bring all the cleaning products and tools.
  • MaidPro[1] in Boston, Massachusetts bundles cleaning into 3, 5 and 7-hour packages varying from $129 to $266 for a one-time service. Biweekly jobs take 2-3 hours per visit and run $50-$70. Rates vary greatly across the country, according to a MaidPro sales representative. In Boston there are many more apartments and smaller homes than in Texas where the average home is 3,000 square feet.
Additional costs:
  • Major tasks like window and wall cleaning are generally not included.
  • Oven or refrigerator cleaning runs around $25. Dusting mini blinds averages $20.
Discounts:
  • Signing up for more frequent service often means a discounted rate. Biweekly cleaning versus one-time means a savings of $50-$200, depending on the size of the home.
Shopping for house cleaning:
  • When choosing to hire an individual through a classified ad or personal referral, The US Department of Labor[2] outlines the regulations. Although house cleaners who work as independent contractors are generally not considered employees, the IRS provides tax information[3] .
  • Tip: Before hiring a cleaning service, ask the company for references and make any special cleaning requests upfront so workers will be prepared

PCS is a great company with great staff that knows how to get the job done right. My current cleaning lady (that i have been using for the last 8 years) got out of the business and i was in desperate need of a cleaning service. I called all around Atlanta and just couldn't find my match. One day I called PCS and I haven't looked back since. They pay so much attention to detail and are very good at what they do. My cleaner is always punctual and polite. My home smells and looks amazing once PCS leaves and I am very satisfied with them. I tell all my friends about them! Give them a call if you live in Atlanta or surrounding areas. (678) 876-7126

Firm: Southern Belles Cleaning Services
I needed a cleaning service and had heard of the Southern Belles Cleaning Services from a co-worker. I called and they were able to come check out my home for recommendations on types of cleanings. I decided to go with a Deep Cleaning once a month and then a weekly basic clean the other weeks of the month. My house sad to say was a total mess until these two ladies came in and did their deep cleaning. I paid these ladies $500 for the initial deep clean as there was tons of stuff that needed to be done (baseboards, ceiling fans, windows (inside/outside), stove (inside/outside), refrigerator, shampooing the carpets and waxing the hardwood floors. The other weeks of the month these ladies come in and keep my home very nicely kept. I don't ever want to get into the conundrum I was in before these ladies started cleaning my house. They have been a life saver. I would recommend their services to anyone.

After the initial cleaning , my family and I were amazed at the way our home sparkled and smelled so clean! It took a couple hours longer the first time because she cleaned from the ceiling fans to the baseboards in the house. Now every time she comes is it only about 3-4 hours or so. We just love her! She has been cleaning for us for almost 3 years now, and we couldn't imagine losing her. Thank you
Diane !

The teams that show rotate each week. We've gotten to know them over the years. Some are more thorough than others, but overall I am very pleased with the look and smell of the house when they leave. We have four animals, two large dogs and two cats. There is always fur to clean, despite my in between cleaning. I would recommend this company. If I have ever had a concern, management is very quick to respond - and I've never had a major issue!
