How Much Does House Cleaning Cost in 2023?

Keeping your home clean and tidy can be a difficult thing to keep on top of. It's no wonder that lots of people choose to hire house cleaners, either on a regular basis, for a deep clean of the entire house, or to get specific areas of your home or furniture cleaned. We've covered a lot of these other types of cleaning in articles on HaMuch, including those on bathrooms, kitchens, and end of tenancy cleaning.

In this article, we’re looking at the costs of domestic home cleaning, whether this is a one off or on a regular basis. Lots of people choose this kind of cleaning work to help them keep on top of their home cleaning. If you’re considering it, it’s important to do your research so you have a good understanding of how much it’s likely to cost. In this article, we’ll cover a rough guide to how much domestic cleaning services could cost you, as well as the kinds of services that are generally included.

Home cleaning prices

In the table on this page, you can see the average prices for domestic home cleaning in your area. As the prices vary across the country, we’ve given the costs for specific areas, based on the variations in the cost of labour depending on where you live. The prices in the table are based on 3 hours work, each week.

However, many people choose to have their cleaning less frequently than every week. Most regular cleaning work is based on an agreed schedule of hourly work, with an average hourly cost of between £15 and £20. This means that you can agree with the cleaning company of your choice a fixed price for a set amount of work at a frequency that suits you, whether that be weekly, every other week, or monthly.

What is included in domestic home cleaning?

So, if you can agree with a cleaning company a set of cleaning tasks to suit you, what’s generally included? Well, some of the typical tasks performed by a domestic home cleaner may include dusting and polishing furniture, cleaning floors, and hoovering carpets and rugs. They may also clean and sanitise bathrooms and kitchens, including cleaning and disinfecting toilets, sinks, showers, and countertops. Domestic home cleaners may also clean and organize other areas of the home, such as bedrooms, living rooms, and dining areas.

Most regular domestic home cleaner visits include common tasks like basic hoovering, mopping and cleaning, as well as some tidying up. Most people also ask their cleaners to do some washing up and tidying of pots, pans and cooking utensils in the kitchen, as well as dusting any well-used areas and giving the bathroom a thorough clean.

In addition to regular cleaning tasks, a domestic home cleaner may also perform additional services such as laundry and ironing, changing bed linens, and cleaning and organizing closets. Some domestic home cleaners may also be willing to perform light household tasks such as grocery shopping, meal preparation, and running errands. Ultimately, the scope of the work performed by a domestic home cleaning company will depend on your needs and the services offered by the company. This means it’s worth considering what sort of jobs you’d like to have done before you speak to cleaning companies – as some of them may not offer the exact services you’d like.

The benefits of regular domestic home cleaning

If you’re considering hiring a domestic home cleaner, you’ll want to understand what the potential benefits are. While of course one major benefit is simply having a clean and tidy home, there are other pros to hiring this service that you may not have even thought of.

Saving you time

One of the most important benefits of hiring a domestic home cleaner is the amount of time it can save you. You may not realise just how much time you spend cleaning and tidying up until after you choose to hire someone to take care of it for you – but once you do, you’ll find the time saving to be a remarkable benefit of this service.

Improving your health

Having a regular, consistent, high quality cleaning regime that a professional cleaning service can put into place could also improve your health. Dust and other allergens will be better removed with a regular cleaning schedule. If you do suffer from allergies or respiratory conditions, this could massively improve your symptoms. And, even if you don’t suffer from these conditions, having less dust and allergies in your home could still have a massive effect on your health.

Cost effective

It might sound odd, given you’ll need to pay a cleaner for their services, but you could actually find that hiring a regular, professional home cleaner will save you money. There are a couple of reasons for this. The first is that you’ll generally save money on cleaning products – your cleaner may bring their own, and even if they don’t bring their own, they can be a lot more efficient in their use of products. The second reason is about the longevity of your furniture, carpets, rugs, and even kitchen crockery, which can all be improved by regular, effective cleaning by a professional.

Better productivity

As well as saving you time, you’ll find that a regular domestic cleaning service could even boost your productivity. Simply not having to think about the entire array of cleaning tasks your home needs will give you a surprising amount of mental energy back – imagine not having to think about doing the laundry! Having a regular cleaner come in and undertake the same tasks each week means you simply don’t have to think about them, freeing up your time to work on the important things.

If you’re considering a regular domestic home cleaning service, it’s worth getting a few quotes from different companies to make sure you’re getting the best price. Think about what kinds of cleaning tasks you’d like to have done, then speak to a few companies to ask about their recommended frequency schedules and prices.
