Services and Pricing
Apartment Cleaning Cost Factors
When pricing out a cleaning job, in addition to the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, and the type of cleaning job needed (standard, deep, move out, recurring), the other factors that affect the price include optional services like oven cleaning, fridge interior cleaning, and interior window cleaning. The price also goes up slightly if the apartment has indoor pets.
Cleaning Supplies – While most people have cleaning supplies in their apartment, professional cleaning services will bring all necessary supplies to carry out the work rather than get there and find they need to run to the store to get something you may have run out of.
Length of Time – Some cleaning companies prefer to send over 2–4 workers for a shorter period, while others might only send one worker who stays for half a day. Most cleaning companies have workers available six days a week, and they are willing to work their schedules around yours.
Add-Ons – As we mentioned above, there are extra costs if you have pets ($5), need the laundry done ($10 to $50), require the fridge to be cleaned ($12), or need window cleaning ($50).
