What is a fair price to charge to clean someone's house or condo?


Just curious. If someone has a 1500 sq foot house that has no carpet or drapes, kids, pets, etc., how much do you think a house cleaner should charge? I have seen rates that go anywhere from a flat rate of $40 to $120 and from $15 to $25 per hour. What think you?

    I can understand a higher rate if several people are working, but if it just one and he or she will work for $10 pr hour as a hotel maid (or thereabouts) why would that same person expect $25?

    In those days, California was booming, so I can see why people could afford to pay that amount then. I wonder if the same would be true today.

    I think a lot depends on where you live. The figures I gave are for the US, and I've seen some that are totally outrageous!

    I found some forums where house cleaners post. It seems that most of them are pushing for $25 per hour plus and are urging each other to refuse to take less, even when the job is an easier one. Some are asking $70!
