# House Cleaning Cost Calculator (i.e. Cost to Hire Cleaners)

We have cleaners clean our home once every 3 weeks.  They do the big jobs that include all floors and bathrooms.  That’s it.  It’s a huge time saver for us because those big jobs are hard to fit into a schedule.  Money well spent.

Some people hire cleaners to clean everything frequently while other people hire them to do some of the cleaning and then some people hire cleaners for one-time cleaning gigs such as when moving or they just want to give their house a really good cleaning.

When it comes to wanting to know how much it costs to hire cleaners, there are many different ways to report those costs.  They include:

• Hourly rate per cleaning person
• Hourly rate for the crew (most cleaning services send out crews of 2 to 4 people)
• Cost to per visit
• Cost per month
• Cost per year

To that end, we created a basic house cleaning cost calculator that calculates an ESTIMATED cost for cleaning your home based on square footage and hourly rates per cleaner.

## Assumptions:

The big assumptions in our calculator are we assumed the following:

• 2 cleaning hours for light cleaning 1,000 sq. ft.
• 3 cleaning hours for moderate cleaning 1,000 sq. ft.
• 4 cleaning hours for deep cleaning 1,000 sq. ft. This would not, however, include one-off items such as cleaning a fridge or freezer or oven. Those tasks would require additional time.

Examples:

2 cleaning hours could be one person taking 2 hours or two people taking 1 hour to clean 1,000 square feet. Therefore, with this example, it would take two people 2 hours to clean 2,000 sq. ft.

Our calculator is intended to be a guideline only given the many variables involved. Moreover, the above calculator does not provide a cost quote; we are not a cleaning service, nor do we sell nor broker cleaning services.
