Which Services Do Cleaning Professionals Deliver

Cleaning and housekeeping businesses provide various types of cleaning services. You can find a home cleaning company to give your space an in-depth one-off cleaning or contract with a company to handle everyday cleaning requirements. Locating a suitable cleaning professional requires choosing what kind of housekeeping services you want.

Some of the most basic kinds of services offered by housekeeping professionals include:

  • Everyday cleaning. These services are almost always offered either daily or weekly, dependent upon your desires and the level of service you choose. House cleaning businesses might sweep, mop, dust; clean tubs, toilets, and sinks; and clean appliances and counters. Some packages can also include additional services such as doing the laundry.
  • One-time deep cleaning. If you have a big gathering or holiday on the horizon or plan to list your home up for sale and want it to look its best, you may invest in deep cleaning. This service gives your entire house a thorough cleaning, with cleaners possibly moving major appliances to clean under and around them, scrubbing baseboards and walls, cleaning windows, and tackling other cleaning chores that don’t usually fall under standard housekeeping categories.
  • Special housekeeping. Some home cleaning businesses offer supplemental options that help you with cleaning special areas of the home, like attics, basements, pools, pool houses, or facades. One example is pressure washing patios, exterior siding, or driveways.

Average Prices for House Cleaning Services

Housekeeping services usually charge either by the hour or via a flat rate for specific types of work. When a job may take a long time to complete or need more complex work, it typically costs more than standard cleaning services. The most accurate way to find out about housekeeping prices in Birmingham is to request an estimate. You can view average cleaning costs across the nation to get an idea of what you might pay.

The typical cost of housekeeping services across the United States is $75 to $250 per appointment. Price points can vary quite a bit based on what housekeeping services you require. For example, some housekeepers also provide cooking services, run errands, and do laundry, and you might pay more per hour for a comprehensive service.

Cleaning services that concentrate on standard cleaning duties charge, on average, $125 to $240 per cleaning appointment. The price generally includes basic day-to-day cleaning, such as cleaning bathrooms, wiping down surfaces, vacuuming, and mopping. If you want an in-depth cleaning, expect to pay $400 or more based on the square footage of your house and how much you need cleaned.

In many instances, you can purchase specialty cleaning services. As an example, many pro cleaners offer to clean gutters, with price points starting around $160, on average. Other cleaners may pressure wash the walls on a home’s exterior; pricing for that kind of job runs about $280.

  • Keeping your home clean is a task that never seems to end, and it can take up most of your free time. Instead of spending your weekends mopping and dusting, consider hiring a housekeeper or cleaning service.
  • Unless a housekeeper performs specific duties regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency or your state or local government, no specific licensing is usually required to become a housekeeper. However, you’ll want to work with a professional who can pass a background check and has a current business license, liability insurance and a surety bond. You’ll also want to select someone who has the experience and can provide references, or someone who has received some professional training from a cleaning company.
  • Keep in mind when hiring any type of professional to clean your home that each state has its own requirements for licensing. You can use Home Advisor’s Contractor Licensing Requirements State-By-State guide to learn more. You can also learn more about the extensive screening process we use when allowing businesses to join our network.

When you hire a housekeeper or cleaning service, there are some questions you’ll need to ask to ensure you’re hiring the right person for the job. Writing down a list of services you want to be completed is a great place to start. This way, you’ll have all the information you need when you do interview a housekeeper or cleaning service, and they can provide you with accurate information and cost estimates.

What Services Do You Offer?

Find out upfront if the housekeeper or cleaning company offers the services you need, especially if you have requests that go beyond basic services.

How Do You Come Up With Your Rates?

Do they charge a flat fee each week? Do they charge an hourly rate? Some companies charge based on your home’s square footage or the number of bedrooms you have.

Do You Provide Your Own Supplies?

Many companies may provide some smaller cleaning supplies, but they may need to use your vacuum cleaner or mop. Others bring their own or none at all. And if you’re particular about the types of chemicals used in your home, you may want to ask what products they use or if they’re willing to use what you provide.

What Happens if Something Goes Wrong?

Anytime you have a professional in your home, something could go wrong. They could get hurt, or some of your property may be damaged. Ask what would happen in these scenarios — a well-qualified professional will have the necessary insurance and bonding to cover these situations.
