Keeping a home clean is a tiring and time-consuming job. With today’s hectic schedules, there is always some reason for pushing aside your cleaning chores. Still, it’s important for both your health and your peace of mind that you live in a clean and healthy home.
The solution? Hiring a cleaning service!
Now, you might think that hiring a professional cleaner is out of your budget, but you may be surprised at how affordable cleaning services in the San Francisco area can be.
When it comes to the cost of house cleaning services, there are a number of different factors that need to be considered. Being aware of how different services are priced and why can help you determine what type of cleaning service is best for you and your budget.
Below, we’ll go over the different types of cleaning companies, packages, services, and other factors that will determine the cost to clean your home.
It can be difficult to determine an accurate average cleaning rate for services in San Francisco, but in general, you can expect to pay anywhere between $40 – $80 per hour or between $150 – $1,000 for your entire home.
Why do prices vary so widely? Because there are so many different factors that affect the cost. Every home is unique, and every homeowner has different priorities, so your cleaning needs may fall anywhere in these ranges. Read on to determine to determine what types of options you have when booking a home cleaner and how your priorities might affect your total cost.
There are several factors which can influence the price of your San Francisco home cleaning. These factors include, but are not limited to:
Hourly cleaning services are one of the common pricing options you will encounter among cleaners and cleaning companies. These allow you to pay by the hour until your home is completed or until the time you have selected is up.
Using hourly cleaning services allows you more flexibility with your cleaning, but it also means that you will not know the final cost until after your cleaner has finished the job. This can lead to some surprisingly large cleaning bills. Or, if you set the number of hours in advance, you may stay within budget but end up with an incomplete cleaning job unless you choose to add additional hours.
Flat rate cleaning packages are beneficial because they provide an upfront, fixed price for your desired services. With this pricing structure, you will never have to wonder how much your cleaning will cost.
These packages are based on the number of bedrooms and bathrooms in your home and use a standardized cleaning checklist to show which cleaning tasks you can expect. The cleaners will also refer to these checklists to ensure that nothing is overlooked or forgotten during your appointment.
Flat rate packages assume that your home is reasonably clean and is a standard size for the number of bedrooms. Homes which are dirtier or larger than average will incur an extra cleaning fee.

The final factor affecting your cleaning cost is the frequency of your cleaning appointments. When you book one-time cleaning services, you will usually pay a higher rate than when you book recurring services.
