Types of house cleaning services in West Palm Beach
Hiring cleaning services in West Palm Beach is a convenient way to save time and energy for other activities. Cleaning companies in West Palm Beach offer several different types of services:
Standard cleaning usually includes sweeping, vacuuming, mopping, light dusting, wiping down surfaces in the kitchen and bathroom and tidying up throughout the home.
Deep cleaning is more intensive than standard cleaning, giving more attention to cleaning dirt, grime and dust from appliances, furniture and fixtures.
Specialized cleaning focuses on a specific household task. Common services include carpet cleaning, wall washing, window cleaning, closet organization, packing/unpacking boxes or laundry.
When choosing a type of cleaning service in West Palm Beach, consider how dirty or messy your home is and how long it’s been since it was last cleaned. Cleaning companies can help you decide on a type of service during a conversation over the phone or an in-home walkthrough.
How much does house cleaning cost in West Palm Beach?
Most West Palm Beach homeowners and renters spend between $90 and $190 for cleaning services. Some cleaning companies charge a flat fee; others have an hourly rate.
The cost of housekeeping in West Palm is based on a handful of factors:
The size of the home: The more square footage, rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms you have, the more expensive maid service is.
Type of service: Deep cleaning takes significantly longer than standard cleaning, resulting in a higher cost.
Cleaning products: Cleaning companies that bring their own supplies and equipment charge more.
Whether you have pets: Pet hair is difficult to clean up and may add to cost.
Additional requests: If you ask your cleaners to climb a ladder to clean a high ceiling fan or to walk your dog, they may oblige — but price will likely increase.
One-time versus regular service: Recurring services, like biweekly standard cleanings, usually come with discounts.

Before hiring a cleaning company in West Palm Beach, make sure you ask these questions:
Does the business have proper licensing, bond and insurance, including workers’ compensation coverage?
What screening do employees undergo (e.g., drug testing, background checks)?
Can the company provide a list of references?
What services are available? How does pricing work? Is there a free, written, guaranteed quote?
Do cleaners bring supplies and equipment? Are products environmentally friendly and safe for kids and pets (if necessary)?
(If you want recurring service) Will the same cleaner(s) come each time?
Is there a customer satisfaction guarantee? What are the terms?
What happens if you need to cancel/reschedule service?
You should also read online reviews and ask friends, family and co-workers for recommendations. Pay attention to comments about ease of scheduling, on-time arrivals, professionalism, friendliness, quality of work and value of overall service.
