How much does house cleaning cost in Perth?

From this article, we will show you the current average cleaning cost in Perth.

We have done the research to give you the best data prior to engaging cleaning services in the Perth Metropolitan Area.

Also, since most agencies work on an hourly rate, we will provide a guideline as to how many hours you should book.

While most independent cleaning contractors would charge $30 per hour, therefore avoiding any agency fees. Engaging a cleaning agency has the most benefits in the market.

Hence our review will be mainly done based on cleaning agencies in the City of Perth, Western Australia.

Bear in mind; the national minimum wage is currently $19.49 per hour, according to Fairwork.gov.au (May 2020). Hence, the agencies will pay the cleaners over the minimum rate ($19.49) and still have to make a profit.

General Cleaning

This is the minimum cleaning activities that should be expected from any cleaning agency in Perth.

The information below is based on more than 10 years of experience in the industry.

The below will show you as well, how most experience agencies estimate the house cleaning cost of your property without going for a pre-inspection before providing a formal quote.

What is included in a General Clean?

Let’s review together what should be included:

Kitchen

By far the largest wet area of the house. based on our research  the general tasks in a kitchen clean include:

  • General tidy up;
  • Dusting and wiping surfaces including:
    • Cabinet doors and handles;
    • Range hood surface;
    • Stove surfaces;
    • Kitchen splashback;
    • The exterior of the oven;
    • Benchtop;
    • Sink and tapware;
  • Vacuuming, and;
  • Mopping.

Bathroom

Surely for most, one of the areas that require good upkeep, leaving this area unattended is not recommended… I’m serious.;

The standard tasks in a bathroom (including shower, hand basin, bath, and toilet) include:

  • General tidy up;
  • Dusting and wiping surfaces including:
    • The exterior of cabinets;
    • Cleaning of the mirror;
    • Hand basin and side benchtop;
    • Shower frames (inclusive of glass);
    • Tapware;
    • Toilet pan and surroundings;
  • Vacuuming, and;
  • Mopping.

Laundry

Right at the back, the laundry is an area that works “as required basis”, not too visited over the week, but gosh one you needed it… the workload is worth a day. The standard tasks include:

  • General tidy up
  • Dusting and wiping surfaces including:
    • The exterior of cabinets;
    • benchtop;
    • sink and tapware;
  • Vacuuming, and;
  • Mopping.
  • Lastly and importantly the washing and drying (here is the heavy work… OMG)

Bedrooms

The largest area of the house, and sometimes the one that matters to us most, we want to ensure the common areas are always tied, this maybe were we spend the most time during the day (if at the home of course), the general cleaning tasks include:

  • General tidy up;
    • Dusting and wiping surfaces including the surfaces of side tables and any other furniture within the room;
  • Vacuuming, and;
  • Mopping

Living and Dining Room

Nothing like a night of good sleep, especially when our bedroom is clean and linen has been changed.

  • General tidy up;
    • Dusting and wiping surfaces including the exterior of side tables and surfaces of other furniture within the room;
  • Vacuuming, and;
  • Mopping

Overall, the general clean is very basic, right?

But do not worry all experience agencies will do any additional or extras, it is just a matter of a house cleaner spending more time at your property. Hence, this is very important when setting expectations, mostly when you are assessing the house cleaning cost in Perth.

If you have read up to this point, great I’m going to share a tip to save on the house cleaning cost…

Assess areas of the home that are not being used or are super cleaned, you can skip them on every other clean, this way you can save between 30 minutes to 60 minutes on your clean saving you money either weekly or fortnightly.

How many hours does a cleaner take to clean my house?

We have prepared the below estimate as a general guideline, as a homeowner or lessee you know your property best, and you should be able to provide a gut feeling estimate on the time required to clean your property. 

Always make sure you allow for enough time. The best way to understand if the time allowed is enough is by communicating with your cleaner after completing the first day, after all these years of experience the house cleaner will tell you exactly what they need to get your home the way you expect.

How much should I pay for a regular clean at my property in Perth?

How much should I pay for a 1 or 2 Bedroom x 1 Bathroom?

$66 (range between $60 to $90)

The estimated time to clean this size property is 2 hours. Using a standard cleaning agency you should be paying around $66.

Bear in mind, not many cleaning agencies go to work for less than 2 hours.

The reason for that is that the house cleaners will have to transport themselves for at least 15 – 20 minutes each way, so it may not be worth having to travel for almost the same amount of time than the job itself.

Also bear in mind some 1 bedroom or 2 bedroom apartments may have a small constructed area, hence the common areas will be shown more when you are wandering around the home, you get to see most of you house than owners of largest properties… if you think about it… they may not even remember what their son’s room is… or may choose not to know intentionally.

How much should I pay for a 2 Bedrooms x 2 Bathrooms or 3 Bedrooms x 1 Bathroom??

$99 (range between $90 to $135)

The estimated time to clean this size property is 3 hours. Using a standard cleaning agency you should be paying around $99 (let’s round it up to $100). 

This cost is very common within the industry, the trick here is knowing your property and knowing exactly what you want…

You could still seek for the standard minimum 2 hours clean, however, you would need to sacrifice certain areas of your house to be completed on every second week or every second fortnight, I’m purely talking about regular cleaning.

If this is a casual clean.. just forget it.. you will need the 3 hours straight…

How much should I pay for a 3 Bedrooms x 2 Bathrooms or 4 Bedrooms x 1 Bathroom?

$132 (range between $120 to $180)

The estimated time to clean this size property is 4 hours. Using a standard cleaning agency you should be paying around $132. 

Now, the size of the property, in this case, is getting a bit big, but let’s not get too alarmed. I would dare to say that for this size of properties you may already have a family with kids or in the plans to expand your family.

Therefore, you are going to need all the assistance you can get to keep up with the chores. Subsequently, 4 hours in our view will get you the cleaning done.

This means that you will not have to worry about the cleanliness of your home for another week. 

Trying to get the house done in less time may involve either skipping certain areas, alternatively, you could direct your cleaner to pass through certain areas real quick… i.e. just vacuuming on the rooms only.

How much should I pay for a 4 or 5 Bedrooms x 2 Bathrooms?

$165 (range between $150 to $225)

The estimated time to clean this size property is 5 hours, that is right…. you have a large prop[erty and it requires a proportional measured action.

Using a standard cleaning agency you should be paying around $165. 

Let’s find the right words to describe it… firstly we may need a map of your house… then… we can get to clean it…

I would dare to say for this size of the property, having a clean done in less than 5 hours you would have to lower your expectation on the quality of the clean to start with.

However, who am I kidding, within our hearts, none one wants to do that, we need to feel like when we get back home from work or picking up the kids or the groceries we walk into a sanctuary, a holy place… where even the breathing soul of the house has been cleaned, then we feel it… it feels right.

With regards to any larger properties, including a 5 bedroom and 3 bathrooms.

Let’s be honest, you will need a team of at least two cleaners to give you a hand or expect the cleaner to spend the day with you.

That is to say, our cleaners have different backgrounds and can easily tell you great stories and experiences in Australia for which you may find entertaining while they get your cleaning done.

In Conclusion, How much does a cleaning cost in Perth?

We have given you some guidelines to assess the cost, ultimately is up to you, the flexibility is out there, let’s bear in mind that most cleaning agencies offer hourly services.

So let’s say you have a house with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, you may only want some assistance with the kitchen and the bathrooms…

There is no need to get the whole house clean, just the areas that cause the most work…

Then get a cleaner for 2 – 3 hours to give you a hand, you can then complete two of the hardest areas such as the kitchen and bathrooms and have peace of mind.

You should describe specifically what your needs are to your cleaning agency. Make sure your cleaner is aligned to your expectations, this will save you money and the stress of not getting the things that matter the most.

Now, to close this article, in short, I’ll share you my biggest tip of them all, always engage with an agency, their job is to have your back, independent cleaning contractors may not always be able to meet your needs (i.e. annual leave or sick leave) and maybe a risk when talking about accidental damage.

If you have had any funny experiences, likewise, if you have heard some crazy stories from your cleaners share it with us, we would like to hear from you. If you are wondering how to find a cleaner in Australia,  have a read to How can I find a cleaner near me?
