One of the most frequent questions that many people have about hiring a cleaning service is how much it will cost. The cost of a professional maid service can vary based on many factors, including the type of cleaning to be performed, frequency, the size of the home and geographic location. When hiring a maid cleaning service, it is often a good idea to obtain at least two or three quotes to compare prices for similar services. As you go about the process of obtaining a cleaning quote, it is important to make sure you follow several guidelines to ensure you obtain an accurate quote.
First, you will need to make some decisions prior to obtaining a quote. For instance, you will need to determine the number of rooms you wish to have cleaned. While many people request a quote for all of the rooms in their home to be cleaned, it is also possible to request cleaning services for certain rooms. For example, you may wish to have only the bedrooms, bathrooms and living spaces cleaned.
You will also need to make a determination regarding the number of hours you want the maid service to be at your home. If there are any extra projects you want performed, you will need to decide that as well. This would be services that are not typically included in the cleaning service, such as cleaning the fridge, oven, etc. It is essential that you know exactly what it is you want prior to submitting a request for a cleaning quote.
You should also bear in mind that the quote to clean your home may vary and can be increased based on several options. For example, some services may charge more to have cleaning services performed on certain days of the week. This is more common on Fridays and weekends.
The square footage of the home may also be a consideration, regardless of the number of rooms. For example, it could easily cost just as much to clean a 2,500 square foot home that only has two bedrooms and one bath as a 1,500 square foot home that has three bedrooms and two baths. When requesting a quote for cleaning services, always make certain you are clear about the size of the home as well as the number of rooms that are to be cleaned. The number of floors in the home may also affect your price. Some services may charge more to clean a two-storey home that is the same size and has the same number of rooms as a one-storey home of comparable size.
If you have pets in your home, the cost may also be increased as the cleaning required may be more intensive and the service may need to use special cleaning solutions to ensure the safety of the pets. You should also take into consideration that hiring a maid cleaning service on a regular recurring basis for a certain number of visits per month or week may actually be less expensive than a one-time cleaning.
