What is the price of Deep Cleaning?

Is your home in need of a good clean? Read our handy guide to find out how much your deep cleaning team will charge for their services.

What is Deep Cleaning?

Sometimes a regular clean is not enough to make our homes hygienic spaces to live in. You might also be someone who struggles to keep up with the cleaning, or simply don’t enjoy it. It doesn’t take long until things get out of hand, meaning your property could be a hazard to your health. At best, dirty homes are unpleasant to live in. 

Deep cleaning is therefore required, and unlike regular cleaning, it takes a lot more time and effort to complete. However, deep cleaning will make regular cleaning much easier to keep up with, which is why it’s also used as a top-up to existing cleaning efforts. 

Deep cleaning involves removing dirt from your bathroom, kitchen (including the oven and fridge), bedroom, floors, ceilings, walls, doors and windows. The techniques involved in deep cleaning include steam cleaning, vacuuming, washing, buffing, polishing and more. Once finished, the property will be left sparkling clean ready to be enjoyed again. 

How much does Deep Cleaning cost? 

The cost of deep cleaning costs slightly more than regular cleaning services, averaging at $45 per hour. The true cost can vary between $35 and $65 per hour.

Average cost of Deep Cleaning
Average cost (per hour) $45
Minimum cost (per hour) $35
Maximum cost (per hour) $65

The price per hour will be per team member unless the entire job is priced as a fixed fee. 

Larger properties or more complex jobs will require additional team members. Typically, deep cleaning requires 1-4 team members depending on the size of the job. 

What changes the price of Deep Cleaning? 

The cost of deep cleaning varies depending on several factors, including: 

  • Level of cleaning required

  • The property size

  • Time

  • Experience

  • Pets or children

  • Potential hazards

  • Location

Level of cleaning required 

No two cleaning jobs are the same. If it’s been a while since the property was cleaned properly, the job will likely be more complex to complete.

Based on 3 hours of work, deep cleaning can range anywhere between $100 and $500 to complete on average.

The property size

Properties across Australia vary dramatically in size. The larger the property, the more ground your deep cleaner needs to cover. Though, it’s also possible to find packages for certain property types, which may work out cheaper overall. 


Depending on the scope of the job, your contractors will factor in the time it will take to complete as part of their quote. Sometimes you will be billed hourly, or as a fixed fee. You should expect deep cleans to take at least 1-3 hours, with severely unclean properties requiring a minimum of a day to clean. 


The experience of the deep cleaning professional may impact the price. As an example, some are new to the profession, and others have decades of experience in all kinds of cleaning jobs. 

Pets or children

If any pets or children live in the property, then there could be additional dirt to remove. In particular, pets bring in dirt from outside on their paws. All of which can become embedded in your carpets or furnishings. 

Potential hazards

Homes contain all manner of items, including those which may be hazardous. 

It’s worth noting that typically, deep cleaners will not take on extremely hazardous jobs. Instead, you’ll be required to have the offending items removed by a licensed professional first. In either case, expect such jobs to cost more money versus general cleaning duties.  


The location will impact the cost of any service you wish to hire, due to the difference in living costs. On the whole, Perth is the cheapest place to hire deep cleaning, averaging at $35 per hour. The most expensive location is Sydney, at $65 per hour. 

As the price fluctuates between $35 and $65 per hour across Australia, you should expect some variations in price regardless of your location.
