How much does commercial cleaning cost?

On average, commercial cleaning costs $200, and prices generally range from $135 to $300. Commercial cleaners charge $80 to $100 on the low end and $450 to $880 on the high end.

Commercial cleaning prices:

National average cost $200
Typical cost range $135-$300
Low-end cost range $80-$100
High-end cost range $450-$880

Because commercial cleaning services provide help for a wide variety of property types —offices, restaurants, retail locations, medical facilities, schools, churches and more — their rates are highly variable. Also, some customers hire professional cleaners for a one-time service, and others use a cleaning service multiple times a week on an ongoing basis.

Here's an in-depth look at the factors that affect commercial cleaning prices.

Commercial cleaning rates per square foot

Pros will help clean small storefronts or offices under 1,000 square feet, as well as massive warehouse spaces or larger offices over 10,000 square feet. The bigger the space, the higher the cost because it will take more time, cleaning supplies and a larger cleaning crew.

Commercial cleaning rates chart:

Total square feet Average cost
0-1,000 sq. ft. $120
1,000-2,000 sq. ft. $200
2,000-3,000 sq. ft. $290
3,000-4,000 sq. ft. $370
4,000-5,000 sq. ft. $460
5,000-6,000 sq. ft. $540
6,000-7,000 sq. ft. $630
7,000-8,000 sq. ft. $700
8,000-9,000 sq. ft. $800
9,000-10,000 sq. ft. $880

Commercial cleaning hourly rates

Commercial cleaners charge $25 to $90 per hour, and the average hourly rate is $39.

National average cost $39/hour
Typical cost range $30-$50/hour
Low-end cost range $25-$28/hour
High-end cost range $75-$90/hour

Companies that charge by the hour may provide a free cost estimate based on a walkthrough and the number of hours they think it could take to clean a space. This cost estimate can vary after the job is complete, and the time it takes to clean the same space may vary from cleaning to cleaning.

Other cost considerations

In an office building, windows, bathrooms, break rooms and kitchens generally take longer to clean and disinfect than hallways, offices or waiting rooms. The more windows that need to be washed and the more higher-traffic areas that need to be cleaned, the greater the total cost will be.

Here’s a hypothetical breakdown of commercial cleaning costs from The Answer Residential and Commercial Cleaning:

Commercial space Square footage Cost What's included
Doctor’s office 1,000 $105 (3 hours at $35/hour) 3 bathrooms, 8 rooms, a receptionist desk, waiting room, hallway and front windows (vacuum, sweep and mop for all areas)
Business office 10,000 (two floors) $210 (6 hours at $35 per hour) 4 bathrooms, 2 lunch areas or kitchens, a receptionist area, 10 offices, 10 windows, stairs and a sitting area (vacuum, sweep and mop for all)
Commercial business space 20,000 $420 (12 hours at $35 per hour) 4 bathrooms, an executive office, 4 offices, lunchroom, customer service area, showroom, main entrance and front windows (with cleaning for all floors)

Instead of hourly rates, some commercial cleaning companies will charge a flat rate. Generally, they will do a site visit and walkthrough to determine how many employees will be needed and how long the job will take.
