As stated above, on average, basic cleaning (dusting, mopping, scrubbing, vacuuming) will run you about $200 for a 1,000 sq. ft. place. Some companies’ prices might depend on the number of rooms, not square footage, but prices should remain fairly consistent.

However, if you need additional services, then the total price might jack up like a rabbit on crack.

Carpet Cleaning – Anywhere between $75 and $200 for a whole house; otherwise, $.25-.50 per sq. ft. is a good rule of thumb.

Furniture – Expect at least $50 and at most $100 to de-stain and de-stench a couch.

Windows – About $5 per window, $3 per screen. If they’re wall-size windows, or difficult to reach, expect prices to rise.

Polishing/Waxing – Floor waxing prices generally range from $.25-.50 per sq. ft. Sometimes companies have minimums for certain sized homes, making their prices less economical.

So, if your place, say a decently-sized apartment, is messed up, then you can expect to pay anywhere from $200 to $350.

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).
