Rob..best bet is to call around local companies and inquire..national rates are no value to you! Ist time cleanups etc..windows or no windows,fridge or ovens..many varibles.

Residential is around 65.00 per hour
New move outs is more usually because we don't charge by the hour because clean all appliance etc more detail

We estimate at .12 a sq ft. We will deviate from that if the place is a dump.

My wife has residential maid service.
She charges per room. Just like with carpets helps to not discount, just do less service for people on budget. With a biweekly cleaning some people don't want every room cleaned every time. Custom cleaning I guess you could say.

Here's her prices.

25 kitchen
15 master bath
10 hall bath
7 half bath
5 rooms (bed, dining, etc)
5 stairs
5 hallway
5 foyer
15 service charge
20 first time fee
10 for monthly vs biweekly (gets waived a lot, but good for people on edge about biweekly)

usually comes out to $50-$75 per hour

maid4ucs.net is her website if you want to get an idea of services provided for those prices.

Well, we operate in NC. I will, for those not aware,.share a bit of advice about the Asian culture. Asian's believe in negotiation. I always adjust my estimates up buy 20% so they feel they have adjusted a good deal. Its just how their culture works.

Windows, ovens, fridges, laundry, none of that.
I helped her couple houses with our first child, I was like this is it?
People "clean up" before she cleans. Little vacuuming, dusting, baseboards, fans, of course bathrooms and kitchens suck. 2500 square foot house done in 2 hours $150 bucks. Hardly any cost.

Sometimes I think, why the hell am I getting into carpet cleaning? 3 customers a day 48 weeks a year thats 720 customers! Constant marketing.

Housecleaning you get 100 customers getting their house cleaned an average of 20 times per year...I'll let you do the math.
