House Cleaning Services: What's A Fair Price And What You Should Get For Your Money


When you are finally in the market for house cleaning services in Parker, Colorado, do you know exactly what you want or need? Are there maid services that will do everything you need them to do and do all of these services come standard? Furthermore, what is a fair price for housecleaning services? To answer these questions and understand better what you should get for your money, let's take a look at what is commonly offered and what the going rate for these services in the Denver Metro, Castle Rock and Parker, Colorado is.

Services Commonly Offered

Maid and housekeeping services that are commonly offered for residential purposes in the Denver area are weekly, biweekly, semi-weekly and monthly services. Included in the visit to your home are the following services:

  • Dusting
  • Sweeping 
  • Mopping
  • Vacuuming 
  • Garbage and recycling removal (from the home to the garage or outdoor can area)
  • Surface cleaning and disinfection or sanitization
  • Toilet, sink and tub or shower cleaning

Some housekeeping or maid service companies may also include dishes, windows and/or light laundry, but these extra services may come at a charge with competitors. Other services, such as wiping down walls, doorways, cleaning ovens and refrigerators, etc., generally fall under one-time move-out services, but you may request these at an additional charge to your usual scheduled services.

Fair Price for Services Rendered

The prices charged by many established cleaning services are higher than those offered by individuals who offer cleaning as a means to make income. The established services may charge anywhere from around $50 to around $80 or more per maid/housekeeper, per hour, and is also based on the size of the house, number of bathrooms, etc. The higher priced services charge more because their businesses and staff are often bonded and insured, which means you can trust that the help you are getting is honest and hardworking and will not sue you if their staff are injured in your home. The lesser-priced services may be insured but not bonded, so it is up to you if you want to hire them and take that risk. If you want to hire a private housekeeper, a fair price is generally between $10 and $30 an hour, depending on whether or not that housekeeper has an assistant and/or personal insurance.

What You Should Get for Your Money

When you schedule a regular cleaning service, you should get professionals who show up on time, do a thorough and excellent job, and do not dawdle or extend their time to make more money. If you have any trouble with a maid or housekeeper, you can either fire him/her or report them to the service you hired and request that a different maid/housekeeper be sent the next time. You should also be able to get people who are respectful and listen to you and clean things the way you like them cleaned. Most cleaning staff are willing to go the extra mile to please their customers, so do not be afraid to make requests or address problems.

Talking About Cleaning

Hello, my name is Kirk. Welcome to my website about cleaning. When I developed asthma, I had to figure out the best way to manage my health. Since my asthma worsened with exposure to allergens, I had to dedicate myself to deep cleaning my home on a regular basis. I learned a lot about keeping my home clean using natural products and methods. I also utilize cleaning services when I cannot perform the work myself. I would like to help others learn how to keep their home clean and tidy on their own and with professional help. I hope you will follow along to learn all you can about cleaning your home. Thanks for visiting.
