I have been cleaning homes for over 20 years. Currently, I live in the Raleigh, NC area and I charge between $70.00 and $85.00 for the average three bedroom, two bath home under 2,100 square feet. Over 2,100 square feet- the price goes up. Naturally if the house is excessively messy or dirty, I will either choose not to clean it at all, or charge more money. I do a thorough job and spend about 3 to 4 hours in the average home. I don't stop for breaks. I clean other peoples' homes probably better than I clean my own! I don't pick up toys or laundry. I expect the house to be fully picked up before I arrive so I can concentrate on cleaning. I clean only one house a day since I work independently. I have no idea how ANYONE can clean two or even three homes a day. I swear they can't be doing a good job. But to answer the question again, you can expect to pay an average of $80.00 to have your average house cleaned.
