What is the price of Deep Cleaning?

Are you looking to get your property deep cleaned? Read our handy guide to find out how much your deep cleaning team will charge for their services.

What is Deep Cleaning?

Our homes accumulate dirt every day, even if we can’t always see it. Over time, dust, filth and grime build-up across our surfaces, appliances, furniture, and floors. Even with regular cleaning, it’s not always enough to leave the area hygienically clean. 

Deep cleaning is therefore required, and unlike regular cleaning, deep cleaning 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 $30 and $60 per hour.

Average cost of Deep Cleaning
Average cost (per hour) $45
Minimum cost (per hour) $30
Maximum cost (per hour) $60

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 

Depending on the condition of the property, the job may be classed as a regular deep clean, or it could be more expensive. Some dirt can be removed with a cloth or duster, whereas heavier filth may require steam cleaning, especially on carpets or upholstery. 

If it’s been a while since the property was cleaned properly, the job will likely be more complex. While all kinds of deep cleaning will be more thorough than regular cleaning, some jobs are more difficult than others, therefore will cost more to complete. 

Based on 3 hours of work, deep cleaning can range anywhere between $95 and $450 to complete on average.

The property size

Properties across Canada 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. 


Some deep cleans will take 2-3 hours, and others will take all day. The total time your professional estimates the job will take will form an integral part of the quote. 


Deep cleaners vary in experience levels. Expect to pay more for cleaners who have been in the job for decades, versus a few weeks. 

Pets or children

Pets and children can bring in additional dirt and bacteria into your home. Pets, in particular, shed fur and tread dirt into your carpets from outside. Kids also love any surface to colour on, even if it’s the walls! Such cleaning jobs take far more time to complete on average, due to the increase in mess. 

Potential hazards

If there are dangerous items or bacteria in the home, it will cost more to clean it. 

It’s worth noting that typically, deep cleaners will not take on extremely hazardous jobs. Instead, you’ll be required to have the hazards 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, Yellowknife is the cheapest place to hire deep cleaning, averaging at $30 per hour. The most expensive location is Toronto, at $60 per hour. 

As the price fluctuates between $30 and $60 per hour across Canada, you should expect some variations in price regardless of your location. 

Is it worth getting Deep Cleaning?

Nothing quite beats a beautifully clean home. If you lack the time, knowledge, tools or energy to deep clean your own home, it’s definitely worth hiring a professional instead. That way, you can rest easy knowing your property not only looks great, but is free from harmful bacteria. A clean home also makes a great first impression on your visitors. With professional deep cleaning, you don’t even have to lift a finger!
