Make-Ready Cleaning

Make-Ready Cleaning is a detailed cleaning,
at a house that is empty
or "staged" (sparsely furnished
to help with the sale of a home).

It is the type of cleaning necessary for those who need
a very detailed cleaning of a home before moving in,
or a thorough cleaning of their old home after moving out.
It gets the home back to "like new" condition, or as close as possible.


Rates for a Make-Ready Cleaning are primarily based on the square footage of the home, plus the price/s of any "Variables" (see below). The rate depends on how regularly the home was maintained, and if there were pets in the home.

Rates for a Make-Ready Cleaning are significantly higher than other
cleaning requirements. An empty house has over twice the amount of
space to clean
(furniture takes up over half the amount of space
in a regularly furnished home), and it is very necessary to clean the
interiors of cabinets and drawers in home being prepared
for new occupants
(in a house that's occupied, it is not logical
to clean the interiors of cabinets and drawers until they are empty).


My rates for a Make-Ready Cleaning are as follows:

  • If the home HAS been regularly cleaned, and there were NO PETS in the home, the rate for a make-ready cleaning is 10¢ per square foot.
  • If the house has NOT been regularly cleaned, and there were NO PETS in the home, the rate for a make-ready cleaning is 11¢ per square foot.
  • If the house has NOT been regularly cleaned, and there WERE PETS in the home, the rate for a make-ready cleaning is 12¢ per square foot.


To determine the total price for a Make-Ready Cleaning:    

  • Begin with the base price for a basic cleaning:
    • multiply the square footage of the home by $.10 (there were NO PETS in the home, and it WAS regularly cleaned)...or...
    • multiply the square footage of the home by $.11 (there were NO PETS in the home, but it was NOT regularly cleaned)...or...
    • multiply the square footage of the home by $.12 (there WERE PETS in the home, and it WAS NOT regularly cleaned),
  • Add the price/s listed for any "Mandatory Variables" (as they apply to your situation),
  • Add the price/s listed for any "Optional Variables" (according to your needs),
  • Total and round to the nearest $5 (minimum $50).


The Make-Ready Basic Cleaning includes:

Kitchen & Bathrooms:  Clean counter tops, sinks, stove-top, toilets, tubs, showers, mirrors.

All Rooms:  Remove Trash. Sweep and/or edge-vacuum baseboards. Clean floors (vacuum/sweep/mop). Dust doors & windowsills.

    • if STAIRS ARE NOT CARPETED, add $5 cleaning cost...or...
    • if STAIRS ARE CARPETED, add $10 cleaning cost
  • Downtown condos with difficult, limited, and/or paid PARKING SITUATIONS, add $5

There are certain services I do not provide

SPECIAL NOTE:  There is a limit to the amount of square footage I can clean
in a day!  Please allow consideration of my limits.  I am capable of
Make-Ready Cleaning an average maximum of 2000 square feet per day.
If the home is larger than 2000 square feet, I need to be
allowed more than one day to finish the job.  Thank you!
