What’s The Difference Between A Flat Rate Clean And An Hourly Clean?

Different cleaning services have different pricing options. Some companies can give you a flat rate over the phone or after a home visit. Other companies may charge based on how many team members will be doing the clean.

You can usually choose the way you pay, but how do you know which is the best option for you?

Hourly Cleaning Rate

Maid2Match offers affordable hourly rates for the following services for house cleaning Perth:

  • Regular home cleaning
  • Deep cleaning
  • Bond cleaning
  • Commercial cleaning

If you want any additional services, you can get them as add-ons on top of the hourly rate. Most cleaning companies have a checklist of tasks that they complete in every room. But when you pay by the hour, you risk the team being unable to finish before your time runs out. 

Not sure how much time to ask for? You can get a quote from a cleaning service based on how many rooms you need cleaned. On average, Maid2Match estimates one hour per bedroom. So if you have three bedrooms, expect to pay for three hours of service.

Flat Rate Cleaning

The company can determine an appropriate flat fee based on the job. You can express your expectations, and they’ll give you a full quote based on:

  • The tasks you want completed
  • The size of the house
  • The number of rooms in need of cleaning
  • The state of the house
  • Any extra services or fees

When you pay a flat price, you know the cleaners will complete the job in full every time. You also get the convenience of not having to guess how long the cleaning may take.

What Pricing Option Should I Choose?

When you hire a cleaning service, you should think about what tasks you want to be done. If you need deep cleaning, it can be easy to underestimate how long that will take. With Maid2Match, flat rate pricing is the most popular choice. We also offer discounts for recurring cleaning services.

As you look for cleaning services, you can always get quotes from multiple companies and compare them. However, don’t just go for the lowest rate if you want quality service. As you contemplate your budget, you want to consider:

  • How established is this company?

You want to work with a company you can trust. While an established company may charge more than a new company, it may be worth it. 

  • Do they have good reviews?

If other customers are praising this company, then you can hire them more confidently. Try to find reviews and testimonials before you hire a cleaner.

  • Can I trust them to have quality service?

If you want recurring cleaning services, you should be able to trust the same company every time. Find out if all their team members are experienced and well trained.

Extra House Cleaning Costs

You may find additional charges on top of the hourly or flat rate for further requests. Some additional fees may apply if you:

  • Want specific cleaners used
  • Need significant tasks such as window washing or oven cleaning
  • Want a deep clean in one area
  • Cancel and reschedule services
