Housekeeper Company vs an Individual Cleaner
Cons – Pros – Price Differences and Why
Do you think to hire an Individual Cleaner or A Cleaning Company? This is a very big factor in the prices for a cleaning service.
Hiring an individual cleaner has its benefits, and perhaps it is what is best for you.
These are some benefits of hiring an individual maid:
- a work well done.
- Affordable prices. (this is the biggest benefit you can get when you hire a maid that works on their own.)
Most self-employed house cleaners and private maids who offer to clean your home or business are not insured or bonded.
This can puts you at major risk as a homeowner or business owner.
If the maids you hire break or damage anything in your house accidentally, they do not have the financial means to replace or repair your property — and they cannot be legally held responsible for any damage.
More importantly, if your maids get injured or hurt while cleaning your home, you are likely to be responsible for paying their medical bills.
Make sure the maid or house cleaner that you hired have general liability insurance so that your home is protected from any damage that may occur. An average of the cleaning service prices of a individual house cleaning or maid are between $12 to $20 per hour.

The prices of companies are usually higher due to the operation of the company.

You may decide that the convenience and trust of working with a company is worth the cost. An average of the prices of the cleaning companies that are insured and legally established are between $30 to $80+ per hour per maid. (some franchises charges more)
Individual maids or house cleaner often charge less than cleaning service companies because regularly they don’t have as many expenses as a company.
