What you pay depends, in large part, on the type of job you want done. Factors like the size of your home, special requirements (like cleaning the windows or shampooing the carpets), or how messy things have gotten during the winter all affect how much you pay.
As a general rule, if you live in a medium-sized apartment or home in a city, you should plan to pay around $100 for cleaning services that come twice a month. That drops to $75 if you’re in the suburbs. However, you’ll pay more if you go through a chain service (sometimes even double the rate of a person who runs their own housekeeping business). Often, though, you can get a discount if you decide to set up regular visits from a housekeeper.
