  • It depends on how much scrubbing needs done. I would say pay someone 40 bucks to clean kitchen, bathrooms, windows, etc, if the house wasn't too messy.

  • Most cleaners charge 10 dollars an hr for regualar house cleaning jobs. I don't know how much they would charge for a one time cleaning?

  • Pro cleaners are pretty pricey. Maybe your husband or you works with somebody who has a wife that wants to make extra money? You could probably get away with paying $50 or so.
    That's what we did when we moved. I asked the warehouse manager if he knew of anyone wanting to earn a few bucks.

  • We had a friend and her mom do it. They were here 2 hours and we paid them $60. So that was $15/hour each.
