How Much Does a Wall Cleaning Service Cost?
Cleaning walls in a home can make the home a healthier environment by removing bacteria and mold. Cleaning and painting walls is a fairly common do-it-yourself project for homeowners. Although it's a known fact that a fresh coat of paint can breathe new life into a room, the appearance of clean walls may surprise you. After a proper cleaning, you may decide that your walls do not need to be painted after all. By cleaning your walls instead of repainting them, you may be able to save money. If it's been awhile since the walls and ceilings have been painted or cleaned, you should thoroughly clean them before painting as it can extend the life of a paint job by helping the paint to adhere better.

Cleaning walls and ceilings may seem at first to be an easy do-it-yourself project. However, you may want to consider several factors. Some cleaning agents can damage paint or plaster, yet others that are safe may also be ineffective. The cleaning products that are non-toxic and environmentally safe are often more expensive than standard cleaning products. In some cases, special solvents may be needed to completely remove some stains. If not done correctly, a wall cleaning job can result in improperly cleaned or damaged walls and ceilings.
Professionals who provide wall cleaning services are familiar with all of these issues. They usually charge between $25 and $35 per hour, and it usually takes between one and two days to clean all of the walls in a typical 2,000 square-foot house. On average, you can expect to pay $300 to $400 to have all the walls in your house cleaned. If you have extremely high ceilings, which is the case in many two-story homes, or a house with a large square footage, you can expect to pay more. If you want environmentally friendly products used in your home, make sure you tell the cleaning service before they start. Some cleaning services may only use these products while it may increase the cost with others. If it has been many years since the walls were cleaned and the task proves more difficult, you may pay more. Kitchens, especially, are one area that proves to be more difficult because of splattered food and grease from cooking.
