With so many cleaning options, we give you the nitty gritty on how long it should take to clean a house.

Eh! Maids basic cleaning duration

How long should it take to clean a house? There are many factors to consider when gauging the time it should take to clean your home. How many bedrooms need cleaned? Is your bathroom neat and tidy? Is the cleaner professional? Here are a few tips to help you out.

The average Eh! Maids cleaning time is roughly 500 square feet per hour per cleaner. Some house cleaning companies will say 700 – 1000 square feet per hour per maid, but do not be fooled, these types of cleaning companies try to fit as many houses as they can in a day, and value quantity of quality.

An Eh! Maids house cleaner can take anywhere from 30-45 minutes for bathrooms, and 15-30 minutes for bedrooms. An average sized kitchen with standard appliances can take anywhere from 45-60 minutes.

Extras That Affect House Cleaning Times

With Eh! Maids, we make sure your house cleaning service is tailored to your specific needs. With many extras to choose from, the time it takes to clean your home will likely increase.

Kitchen appliances and kitchen and bathroom cupboards will take roughly 30 minutes each, as long as the cupboards are empty and in decent shape. Baseboards can add 60 minutes to any service, sometimes more depending on how dirty they are.

A deep clean can add multiple hours to a cleaning service, anywhere from 1-6 hours, depending on the size of the home, the amount of bedrooms and bathrooms and the last time a deep clean was performed. To cut down the cleaning time on a deep clean we always recommend starting your recurring service off with a deep clean, and having one done on your home every 3-6 months.

Although cleaning times are important, Eh! Maids has developed a system that doesn’t require the cleaners to be under any time restrictions. This allows the cleaner to do the house cleaning service correct and provide a high-quality cleaning service.

One Tree Planted has managed to plant more then 5 million trees to date, creating a healthier climate, protecting biodiversity and helping reforestation efforts around the world.

With every house cleaning service purchased, a tree will be planted in Ontario on your behalf. Since partnering with One Tree Planted in 2019, Eh! Maids and our customers have planted more then 1000 trees in Ontario!
