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

What is Deep Cleaning?

Filthy homes are not always a quick fix. The problem is that the job needs to get done, especially as your health could be at risk due to the bacteria present. Plus, it’s unpleasant to live in an unclean home. 

 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 requested 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 $30 per hour. The true cost can vary between $25 and $45 per hour.

Average cost (per hour) $30
Minimum cost (per hour) $25
Maximum cost (per hour) $45

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 

The level of cleaning required will depend on the condition of the property. 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 $75 and $400 to complete on average.

If you want specific features cleaned, you might be able to negotiate them as part of a package. For example, if you want your carpets to be cleaned by a professional, it might be worth getting this done at the same time. Not sure? Here's a handy guide to carpet cleaning prices.

The property size

Properties across the US vary dramatically in size, with everything from tiny studio apartments in New York to sprawling Beverly Hills mansions. 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

If you have pets or children, your home is likely dirtier than the average home. Pets, in particular, shed fur and tread dirt into your carpets from outside. Kids also love any surface to color 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

Hazards exist for cleaners, especially if the property is particularly dirty. Though the exact hazards the cleaner is willing to handle will depend on the individual company. 

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, Wisconsin is the cheapest place to hire deep cleaning, averaging at $25 per hour. The most expensive location is California, at $45 per hour. 

As the price fluctuates between $25 and $45 per hour across the US, you should expect some price variations regardless of your location.

Is it worth getting Deep Cleaning?

Deep cleaning isn’t an easy task, especially if you lack the time to do it regularly. Even with the best intentions, your home probably isn’t anywhere near as clean as you think. Therefore, deep cleaning is an excellent service to hire for the benefit of everyone in the property. It will also ensure that future cleaning is much less work, because the majority of the dirt has been professionally removed in advance.
