After a long day at work, the last thing you want to do is clean your home.
But, if you don’t do the cleaning, the tasks will start to pile up. Clothes need to be washed, the bathroom needs to be scrubbed, the floor needs to be mopped; the list goes on and on.
If you have limited time to keep your home clean, you have two options: hire a live-in domestic helper, or hire a part-time cleaner.
But, unless you have special requirements, have kids or ageing parents at home, then you may not need a live-in domestic helper. Instead, a part-time cleaning service will be more economical since they only need to come in a few times a week.
But, how much do home cleaning services cost in Malaysia, specifically, in KL or Klang Valley? Here are the prices for home residential cleaning:
Price for home cleaning service (Kuala Lumpur / Selangor)
The average hourly rate for house cleaning in Klang Valley is RM25 per cleaner per hour. That means, if you hire a team of 2 cleaners for 2 hours, the cost will be RM100. Similarly, the cost of hiring 1 cleaner for 4 hours will also be RM100.
One-time cleaning prices:
- 1 cleaner * 4 hours: RM100
- 2 cleaners * 2 hours: RM100
- 2 cleaners * 3 hours: RM150
- 2 cleaners * 4 hours: RM200
- 2 cleaners * 5 hours: RM250
- 3 cleaners * 4 hours: RM300
The pricing above is based on a one-time cleaning session.
However, if you want more affordable home cleaning, you can buy a monthly home cleaning package. Compared to RM25 per hour per cleaner for one-time cleaning, the hourly rate can drop to RM21 per cleaner per hour.
Monthly cleaning package prices (4 sessions):
- 1 cleaner * 4 hours * 4 sessions: RM336
- 2 cleaners * 2 hours * 4 sessions: RM336
- 6 hours- 2 cleaners * 3 hours * 4 sessions: RM504
- 8 hours- 2 cleaners * 4 hours* 4 sessions: RM672
- 10 hours- 2 cleaners * 5 hours* 4 sessions: RM840
- 12 hours- 3 cleaners * 4 hours* 4 sessions: RM1008
For even greater savings, get a three-month cleaning package at RM19 per cleaner per hour:
Three month package price (12 sessions):
- 1 cleaner * 4 hours * 12 sessions: RM912
- 2 cleaners * 2 hours * 12 sessions: RM912
- 2 cleaners * 3 hours * 12 sessions: RM1368
- 2 cleaners * 4 hours* 12 sessions: RM1824
- 2 cleaners * 5 hours* 12 sessions: RM2280
- 3 cleaners * 4 hours* 12 sessions: RM2736
Even though the rate does not change whether you need 1, 2 or 3 cleaners to visit your house per session, it’s good to stick to the same arrangement for every session, so that your cleaning service provider can plan ahead.
The prices above assume a once-a-week cleaning session. But if you need the cleaners to visit your house more often (e.g. twice or three times a week), it can be arranged in advance at no additional charge.
What’s included in our home cleaning services?
A typical home cleaning service will include:
- Vacuuming or sweeping the floor
- Mopping the floor
- Rubbish clearing
- Wiping of surfaces and windows
- Scrubbing bathroom sinks and toilet bowl
- Cleaning areas include bedroom, bathroom, living room, dining room, kitchen, front porch and balcony
Your home cleaning service provider may also levy an additional charge if you need them to provide their own cleaning equipment, such as mops, brooms, vacuum cleaners, cleaning chemicals and detergents, sponges and brushes, wiping cloths, pails and trash bags.
The average add-on cost for supplying cleaning equipment is RM30 per session, regardless of the duration of each session.
What is not included?
Laundry, ironing, folding clothes and dishwashing is not included in the cleaning sessions by default. If you need these tasks to be done on a regular basis, let your cleaning provider know so that they can estimate the additional time needed (or remove tasks that you don’t need).
Also, the tasks above assume that you need a regular cleaning session. But, if you need to hire cleaners for a special spring cleaning (e.g. before Chinese New Year, Hari Raya or Deepavali), you will need to inform your cleaning provider that you need extra tasks such as cleaning of fixtures (e.g. ceiling fans and ceiling lights).
Another point to note is that the home cleaning services above are not suitable if you have just completed a home renovation, or if the house is in between tenants. For these occasions, you will need to book a post-renovation cleaning, or a move-in/move-out cleaning instead.
