29 April 2024 | BY

If you dread the thought of tidying up, here are 6 house cleaning services that will leave your home spotless.

The last thing that anybody wants to think about when they return from work is how messy their home is. However, that’s the sad reality that everybody has to face—unless you put in the effort to tidy up, your home won’t clean itself.

However, there are actually a multitude of cleaning services you can hire online to so you don’t have to spend your precious off days cleaning. That’s why we’ve highlighted 6 cleaning services that offer professional cleaning at wallet-friendly prices.

1. Luce—The cheapest cleaning rates from $16/hour

First up on the list is Luce, offering the most affordable prices of the 6. Their rates start at $16.25/hour for a minimum of 3 hours, though this rate only applies to next-day bookings. Advance bookings incur higher charges.

Luce’s extensive cleaning service covers the common areas, kitchen, and bathrooms of your home. Additionally, they offer extra services like cabinet dusting, fridge deep cleaning, and other pesky, hard-to-clean areas for an additional fee. 

2. Helpling—Landscaping and floor polishing services from $23/hour

Operating in 7 countries around the world, Helpling is a household name not just here, but also in countries like France and England as well. A one-time cleaning session goes for $26/hour, but booking a weekly or fortnightly service will bring this down to  $23/hour.

The products can be purchased separately, at a discounted price, when bundled with their cleaning services. Whissh provides weekly cleaning services, sold in packages with a minimum 4-week commitment. It works out to $26/hour for weekly 4-hour sessions.

4. Urban Company—Custom chore packages from $27/hour

If you have specific areas that need extra care and attention, Urban Company allows you to book cleaning services with custom chore packages. 

For example, those with weather-battered balconies may book the balcony cleaning option that’s priced at $16 for 40 minutes. Additionally, Urban Company provides cleaning solutions and equipment, so you don’t need to worry about supplying your own.

Routine cleaning is a chore, but spring cleaning can feel like an entire ordeal. Cleaning up every corner of your home without the proper equipment can feel daunting. 

Homeowners facing issues with this will want to look at A1 Cleaning Service’s spring cleaning package, a more comprehensive clean which covers the entire house—including oft-forgotten bits like the storeroom or ceiling fans.

Ad hoc cleaning services like the spring cleaning package go for $35/hour, though the fee may vary based on the size of the home. Additionally, they also offer regular cleaning from $22/hour on their bi-weekly package. 

6. Sendhelper—Weekend cleaning with no surcharge from $25/hour

Weekend cleaning normally incurs a surcharge, which may seem trivial, but can add up quickly. Sendhelper is the only cleaning service on this list which does not have a weekend surcharge, so homeowners who prefer to be present when the cleaners are around may want to opt for Sendhelper’s services.
