House Cleaning FAQs:
What is professional house cleaning?
Professional house cleaning is when you hire a cleaning service to tidy your house. The standard services include sweeping/vacuuming, mopping, tidying of beds, cleaning of toilets, wiping down the kitchen, and disposing of rubbish. If you require more heavy-duty services like laundry or window cleaning, you will probably need more time.
How much does house cleaning cost?
Depending on the workload, the average cost of house cleaning per hour is between $20 to $50 per hour. You can get cheaper rates if you subscribe to a recurring service. Peak period rates (usually before festive occasions due to higher demand) are applicable.
How much time will it take to clean my house?
This will depend on how big your house is. For less than 1000sq ft of space, I would say 2-hours is sufficient time for basic cleanup. Frequency wise, if you do not spend much time at home, once a week can suffice. Some cleaning services like NTUC provide 2 cleaners for a bigger space.
Is it worth it to hire a cleaner, or do it myself?
It really depends on how much time you have and how much value you put to your time. If your time is worth $50 per hour and you are hiring a cleaning service for $20 per hour, that would be worth it. Also if you have other commitments that demand your time, like spending time with your kids, then it would make more sense to hire a cleaner.
