A deep house cleaning will most likely cost you more than a general house cleaning. Make sure you know what’s included on that deep cleaning list.
When hiring a house cleaning service, you’re probably going to have to commit to a “deep cleaning” right out of the gate. Most companies require it for new clients. But what exactly does that service entail? In a nutshell, it means almost every nook and cranny of your home will get special attention.
On average, a deep clean costs between $200 and $400, depending on the size of your house. Standard routine cleanings after that initial visit typically cost between $100 and $150. According to recent Angie’s List reviews, members reported spending an average of $227 on a deep cleaning and $123 for a bi-weekly standard house cleaning.
A deep cleaning is also a good idea if you’re moving, preparing for the holidays or planning a special event. And there’s no need for you to lift a finger — hire a pro to handle the dirty work!
