That’s something best discussed with your cleaner, however, we find that most clients who take a regular clean have their cleaner attend for 3 hours per visit.
We’ve found that some smaller homes can take longer to clean than slightly larger properties, their being less space to move around within, and sometimes a larger property is somewhat easier to clean when it has less ornaments and surfaces to clean.
Whilst the shortest visit time for a regular clean is 2 hours per week or 3 hours per fortnight, that doesn’t always provide sufficient time for a cleaner to successfully negotiate every room in some homes and it’s a false economy to underestimate how much time your cleaner will need to do a great job for you.
As an approximate guide here are some suggested cleaning times:
1 bedroom 2.0 to 2.5 hrs
2 bedroom 3.0 to 3.5 hrs
3 bedroom 3.5 to 4.0 hrs
4 bedroom 4.0 to 5.0 hrs
5 bedroom 5.0 or more hrs
These times are very much an average amount, dependent upon what’s in each room, how easy it is for the cleaner to move about within each room, etc. The cost for one-off cleans are listed here.
Also, if you require an intensive clean, such as for leaving a home, or to remove grime that’s been building up for quite a while, we would recommend you allow for twice the duration of that for basic cleaning.
Please note that due to prior bookings it is unlikely the cleaner will be able to stay past their agreed time, so under-booking the amount of time required could result in an incomplete job.
