How Much Does It Cost to Clean an Office Building?
It’s more important than ever to keep your office clean. You can do this internally with a range of cleaning equipment or you can hire a professional cleaning company to clean on your behalf.
While the latter may be less hassle, hiring a professional cleaning company can be costly. It’s important to understand how much it costs to clean an office building before you commit, as it could impact your bottom line.

In this article, we explore the average prices for cleaning an office building, as well as the various factors that will contribute to the cost.
How much does it cost to clean an office building?
Cleaning companies either charge per hour or for the job as a whole. Charging per hour is far more common, so you should expect to pay more if you have a particularly large office or are paying for a deep, thorough clean.
While it’s hard to provide a precise amount for commercial cleaning prices, there are some statistics for the national average to give you a rough idea.
- UK National Minimum Cost – £20
- UK National Maximum Cost – £75
- UK National Average Cost – £40
- Average Range – £20-£75
How much your specific office clean will cost will depend on a variety of factors. Consider all of the following factors to determine how much your office clean might cost.
The type of property you need cleaning will dictate the type of cleaning you need. For example, a factory or warehouse will likely get much dirtier than a small, standard office, and so will require more regular deep cleaning. Deep cleans are a more thorough process, and you should expect to pay more for a deep clean whether you’re paying per hour or in total.
You may only be able to get a cleaner in at a specific time of day. For example, you might get a cleaner in after staff have gone home so as not to disrupt their work. Some cleaning companies may charge extra for cleaning at peak times, or you may be charged extra to obtain regular cleaning at set hours.
Frequency of cleaning
Consider how often you’ll need professional cleaning. Obviously having a cleaner once a day is going to be more expensive than once a week, so consider how often you actually need one. If you work in an industry that gets unclean very easily, a daily cleaner may be a necessity. However, if you work in a small office with just a handful of staff, you might only need a weekly cleaner.
Areas to be cleaned
The size of the area to be cleaned will have a considerable influence on the overall price. If you need a large area cleaned, it will likely take longer, leading to a higher price. It may be the case that you need your entire office space clean, or it may be the case that you only need certain areas cleaned, such as the kitchen or bathroom.
The experience of the firm you are using will be a significant factor in the price. Choosing a cheaper company may not always be the wisest option if they fail to clean to suitable standards.
The best way to balance price and performance is to check reviews. Remember — local businesses will often be cheaper but still offer better performance. Bigger firms will probably cost more and if they’re not local they may also add more for travel costs.
