Keeping your home in pristine condition has become a lot more affordable. From $35/hr in FY14, the average cost of a house cleaning service in NSW has dropped to approximately $30/hr this year — a 14% reduction from last year's average rate.
The budget and premium rates for house cleaning also decreased. This year, hiring a budget cleaner in NSW only costs $27/hr which is 10% less than it cost last year. The premium rate, on the other hand, dipped by 13% to just $35/hr.
Apart from NSW, Tas and NT also saw price reductions for house cleaning work. In contrast, the professional cleaners from Vic and ACT raised their average fees. The recent pricing changes resulted in NT being the state with the most expensive house cleaning services.
