To demystify housekeeping service prices, we researched rates of housekeeping services in Delhi/NCR. This research gave us an insight on both housekeeping cost and how the cost is calculated.
Housekeeping service prices based on man hours
A common method of calculating the price of housekeeping services is on the basis of ‘quality & number of man-hours’ though many factors come into play while determining the cost of Housekeeping service, such as.
The Skill-Set of Housekeeping Staff
The Housekeeping staff is categorized into Skilled, Semi-skilled or Unskilled according to their expertise and the service price depends on this. For example, a supervisor is considered as skilled (most costly), a pantry boy, semi-skilled and house-keeping boy is considered unskilled staff(least costly).
The Number of Man-Hours
The number of working hours of each staff per day and hence per month also affects the cost of housekeeping service.
The Total Area of the office/home
The sq.ft area of an office/home helps in determining the number & type of staff required to maintain the place and therefore the price of housekeeping service.
Cleaning Chemicals & Equipment
The chemicals & equipment required for cleaning and maintenance are either provided by the housekeeping company or by the customer.
