Empty Apartment Cleaning Prices

Move out cleaning costs between $110 and $350 for an empty apartment. Vacant apartments usually get a deeper cleaning because the property needs preparing for the next renters or tenants.

If an apartment has sat vacant for some time, it will still likely cost between $110 and $350 to clean, if not more. A 3-bed, 2-bath apartment with lots of dust and cobwebs could cost as much as $690 to clean.

Apartment Cleaning Price by Size


One-Bedroom Apartment Cleaning Prices

The cost to clean a 1-bed, 1-bath apartment runs between $60 and $110. A one-time standard service runs on the lower end (between $60 and $90) while most move-out cleaning costs $110.

Cost to Clean Two-Bedroom Apartment

Cleaning a 2-bed apartment ranges from $90 to $130 but could cost up to $600 for a deep move-out cleaning. You’ll likely pay at least $10 more for a 2-bed, 2-bath (versus a 2-bed, 1-bath).

Hiring professional cleaners to come bi-weekly can lower the cost of an individual visit. The more frequently the service is provided, you may receive a better rate. You may find that it costs the same to have two cleanings per month instead of one. While a one-time cleaning for a 2-bedroom apartment costs between $90 and $130, two cleanings lower the cost to $80 to $120 per visit. Contact an apartment cleaner near you for an estimate.

Condo Cleaning Prices

For a 3-bed, 2-bath condo cleaning, expect to pay between $100 and $180. Condos are usually bigger than apartments. The average condo is 1,200 square feet whereas the average apartment is less than 1,000 square feet. This difference in size means more room to clean.

Rental Property Cleaning Prices

Hiring a cleaning company to clean a rental property costs anywhere from $90 to $690, but average between $110 and $350. Most landlords hire this service once their tenants move out to prepare for the next renters. Move out cleaning prices depend on several factors:

  • Apartment size
  • Overall cleanliness
  • Whether pets lived in the apartment
  • If the previous tenants smoked

DIY Apartment Cleaning vs. Hiring a Professional

Most people clean their own apartment because it’s less expensive. However, most people also know that it takes a lot of time to do a decent job. Thoroughly keeping up your apartment takes 160 minutes a week. Many people just don’t have the time, energy or ability to clean an apartment themselves; hiring a professional makes things infinitely easier.

Those who are very busy with work or travel a lot know that nothing is more satisfying than coming home to a clean place. Even if you just don’t like cleaning (who does?) you could save more than 5 hours a month by hiring a bi-weekly service.

Additionally, you could actually save money by hiring a service when you’re about to move out. Depending on your lease, it could cost less to find your own company instead of relying on the landlord to do it.


How much is a one-time apartment cleaning?

A one-time apartment cleaning averages $110. You could pay anywhere from $60 to $180 or more depending on the size of your place and whether it needs deep cleaning.

How much are apartment building cleaning services?

You’ll likely hire commercial cleaners for an apartment building which usually cost between $30 and $80 per hour, per cleaner. Find a maid service to work out an estimate and cleaning schedule.

What are carpet cleaning prices for apartments?

The cost to carpet clean an apartment is between $0.20 and $0.40 per square foot. Most apartments aren’t entirely carpeted so for a 200 square foot space you’ll likely pay around $80 to $100.

How much is an apartment cleaning fee?

Apartment cleaning fees vary but usually apply at the end of a lease. Sometimes hiring a professional service on your own saves you more money than if your landlord hires a cleaner once you move out.
