How much for apartment cleaning?

I got an offer from a company that proactively contacted me, but I'm not sure if their price is reasonable (850 CHF).

The apartment is 3.5 rooms, 95m2.

Re: How much for apartment cleaning?

It seems a bit high, but you can't tell not looking into details.

What kind of cleaning are we talking about here? Is that a weekly/monthly cleaning from a service like Batmaid, or is it a final cleaning before/after the move, or is it a cleaning after an exorcism party with glitter-bombing and food throwing? Does it include windows, oven, vents or any other extras?

Best advise is always to do some price discovery and ask for several quotes from different companies.

For 95m2 looks reasonable if they offer guarantee.

I used vipany.ch to get offers and I ended up paying 840 chf for a 4.5 rooms apartment (115 m2) with guarantee.

Re: How much for apartment cleaning?

Break it down by how many hours you think it would take to do a deep, thorough clean. Many cleaning companies will change over 30 francs an hour for cleaning, some much more.
Get other quotes and check out their rates as well.

Finally, think of how long it would take you to do it, and what you might prefer to do in that time, and consider whether it's worth the monetary savings to do it yourself.
