The Price Homeowners May Need to Pay for Home Cleaning Services

Home cleaning services often charge either by the hour or via a flat rate for specific types of work. If a job might take a long time or require more special skills or equipment, it typically costs more than everyday cleaning services. The best way to learn about house cleaning prices in Farmingdale is to get a quote. You can view some of the average costs across the country to get an idea of potential costs.

Typically, it may cost $75 to $250 per session for many cleaning services. Housekeepers may do work beyond the scope of cleaning. Some cook and run errands, and homeowners might pay by the job or an hourly rate. Sometimes, you may agree to a weekly or monthly rate for certain cleaning work.

Home cleaning businesses generally emphasize only cleaning duties. Costs run, on average, $125 to $240 per session. If you plan to hire a business for in-depth cleaning or one-off tasks, you may pay $400 or more, based on how big the job is.

You might also pay for home cleaning services via an a la carte menu, buying just the particular cleaning work you want. For instance, the typical price for gutter cleaning is $160, and the typical charge for cleaning exterior siding is $280.

Tips for Employing the Right Cleaning Company

Whenever you hire a contractor to clean your property, you’re consciously deciding to let them inside your most intimate spaces. That requires a good amount of trust and assurance that you are employing a high-quality, ethical housekeeping business. Homeowners and renters can do their part by coming up with the right questions and performing research before signing a contract with a house cleaning service.

Delve Into Reviews and Seek Advice

Research reviews on HomeAdvisor. Once you’ve done that and narrowed down the list, take the time to read customer reviews on other sites. You can also ask for advice from friends and family or via social media. Once you get hold of a potential house cleaning company, inquire about references so you can talk directly to past or current customers. This information assists you in getting a better feel for the company’s customer service and quality of work.

Double Check for Complaints That Have Not Been Resolved

Read the BBB webpage or the company’s social media pages to find any complaints that haven’t been resolved. These are consumer issues that the service has left unaddressed. Although one complaint isn’t necessarily cause for alarm, a history of similar issues without business input may be a bad sign.

Learn More on the Housekeeping Company’s Site

Review FAQs on the housekeeping business’s webpage to learn how it employs staff, what chemicals and processes it uses, and if it engages in the kind of services you need. Look for cleaning businesses that run background checks on contractors and take other steps to guarantee customer and home safety. You may also want to call and ask about cleaning supplies if you have pets, young children, or immunocompromised individuals in your house.

Doing a bit of research upfront to make sure you contract the best cleaning company in Farmingdale may increase the chances of a pleasant result.

  • 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.
