    You’re getting a good deal.

    The cost isn’t priced per bedroom or per bathroom or square footage. That’s just the marginal cost to the cleaner. They have fixed costs: Driving, fuel, equipment and materials, time, and also the lost opportunity cost that they could go clean someone else’s larger house for more money.

    We paid $75 every other week in our 2BR and 1 bath place (1100sqft)

    weddingbliss1028 :  Yes, that is very reasonable. I pay $90 every other week for a 3 bedroom/3.5 bath 2100 sq ft home. Two people usually come to clean at that price.

    I’ve never been quoted for space just for hourly rate. I was charged 125 for 4 hours.

    weddingbliss1028 :  I pay $120 every 2 weeks for a 3 bed 1.5 bath, about 1900 sq ft. The initial clean was $240 for 2 people to spend over 6 hours hosing this place down. Just outside of Boston and we have a baby and a large shedding dog so it’s a big job lol.

    I have been trying to find a house cleaner for a couple years. They all say they are not taken on new clients. 

    I had one quote the job at something ridiculous. Like $150 per week. 

    I would gladly pay what you pay. We have 5 bedrooms but 2 are never used.

    It sounds par for the course around here, actually less than average.
