  • My dad has a lady come in to clean every other week. I think he pays $35, but he is actually a really clean person and lives by himself so she is basically sweeping, mopping, and cleaning the bathrooms. I would set up "packages" with what they want done...a basic package like what my dad has, but then maybe you could offer "add ons" for more services.

  • Not sure really. I think it depends on what they actually want you to clean or if you use your own products too. Maybe google some cleaning service and see what they charge.

  • My MIL has her house cleaned and the lady charges her $10.00 an hour. That is her cleaning lady's rate no matter what size your house is.

  • My mom has had a cleaning company for 12+ years. She charges by room. I think it is like $8 a room.
