Cleanliness and hygiene are two things that have been at the top of our minds this year. Some of you may have foreign domestic helpers to keep your homes clean and tidy, but for the rest of us who don’t have all the time in the world, a professional house cleaning service might be in order. These services typically cover your living area, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and wardrobe, where the cleaner wipes down surfaces, mops your floors, scrubs your kitchen stove and sink as well as a host of other activities.
Professional house cleaners typically charge an hourly rate and how much the eventual cost is would depend on the frequency of your engagement. Most recommendations fall between weekly and monthly sessions. For example, if you are going to maintain your home in between sessions actively, a monthly service would be more appropriate. But we’ll let the professionals be the judge for this.
We have instead rounded up 5 best cleaning services in Singapore that can help you live in greater comfort and peace of mind!
Featuring a very user-friendly website with all the important facets of information kept accessible, Kleepers Singapore boasts a “no waiting” guarantee for every booking made online. This seamless experience extends to payments being facilitated online as well as having access to a neat dashboard where you can check your history of booked sessions, including upcoming ones.
You can pick from 4 available plans:
- One Time General Cleaning ($35/hour)
- Regular Cleaning (sold in prepaid packages of 12, 27 and 55 hours. Rates begin at $24/hour.)
- Spring Cleaning (from $200 per session)
- Move-In/Move-Out Cleaning (from $160 per session)
Kleepers’ website provides a breakdown of the services offered for each area of your house, and the total duration for each cleaning session varies between 4 to 8 hours. This depends on the size of your home and the extent of cleaning that is required. While you will have to supply the cleaner with the basic cleaning equipment and materials, rental is also available for items such as detergent, glass wipers and special cloths for more delicate surfaces.
Still wondering about reliability? All cleaners from Kleepers Singapore undergo a mandatory 30-hour training programme specially designed by the company’s Taiwanese and Japanese partners. If you haven’t heard, these 2 countries are highly regarded for their cleaning practices both at home and in public.
Bonus: Kleepers Singapore now also offers nanny services! More to find out on its website here: https://nanny.kleepers.com/

Fresh Cleaning Pte Ltd
Another highly-rated house cleaning service, Fresh Cleaning has bagged the “Reliable Pro” award by SGHOMENEEDS as well as kaodim.sg’s “Pro of the Month” award in March 2019. Perhaps owing to its complimentary site inspection and a full provision of all cleaning equipment needed, it’s not hard to see why this professional house cleaning service has made it onto our list.
Cleaning sessions are offered between once, twice and thrice a week, each totalling 4 hours. The rates vary according to the frequency, beginning at $416 for a weekly booking. There are some minor additional charges for weekends ($20 per session) and every extra hour at $30, so it would be advisable to take these into account when planning your next session.
Fresh Cleaning doesn’t just send 1 cleaner but a team of between 2 to 4 cleaners so that you are almost guaranteed a thorough outcome. You can find a comprehensive price list on its website that categorises the cost according to the size of your home (e.g. 4 bedroom HDB between 1,000-1,199 square feet priced at $408). Other services provided include:
- Deep cleaning
- Post-renovation cleaning
- Moving-out cleaning (only for empty apartments where no furniture is present)

This is by far one of the most unique house cleaning services available in Singapore. Whereas the previous 2 are companies that have professional cleaners on their payroll, Helpling Singapore is an online platform that matches you with its network of vetted cleaners (who work on a freelance basis) or house cleaning service partners. Hourly rates are displayed on each cleaner’s profile, and Helpling earns by taking a 20% commission fee from them.
Committed to providing a fuss-free experience, you can make your bookings and process payments on either the website or its mobile application (available on both Android and Apple devices). You will also be able to communicate with your assigned cleaner and have easy access to a responsive customer service representative during regular business hours.
Choose between “Recurring Cleaning” and “One Time Cleaning” to best suit the needs of your household. Priced at a flat rate of $20/hour, Recurring Cleaning sessions are scheduled weekly or fortnightly depending on your preference. A minimum of 5 sessions must be booked. On the other hand, One Time Cleaning ($28/hour) offers free rescheduling of your appointment up to 48 hours in advance. Similar to Fresh Cleaning Pte Ltd, it charges an additional $10 for bookings scheduled on a Friday and weekend. All bookings also come with a $2.50 service fee, but for the highly-rated house cleaning service, we’re sure that you can close one eye for that.
Note: You must provide the cleaner with all necessary equipment. He/She will be in touch with you beforehand so that you have time to prepare.

With a variety of services offered from part-time domestic helpers to a spring cleaning session, @bsolute Cleaning might just as well become your one-stop solution for professional house cleaning in Singapore. Sessions are sold in packages of either 3 or 4-hour blocks, ranging between weekly to twice or thrice a week in frequency. Each package has a minimum number of sessions (e.g. 4 sessions weekly, 8 sessions for twice weekly, and 12 sessions for thrice-weekly).
The price list for spring cleaning is very comprehensive, categorised according to:
- Number of cleaners required
- Duration of the session
- Size of your house
We recommend checking its website to determine which arrangement is most suitable for you. While no registration or agent fee will be charged at all, note that every additional hour of service is payable at $23.50/hour and a 20% surcharge will be fixed for cleaning sessions scheduled during Chinese New Year, Hari Raya and Christmas. Like most other house cleaning services, you will be required to provide the cleaning equipment and materials necessary for the cleaner to perform his/her duty. However, supplies are also available for rent at $86 per set should you need them.
@bsolute Cleaning promises professionally-trained cleaners and offers other cleaning services for your carpets and air-conditioners. Browse its website to find these separate rates.
Pro-tip: If you are new to this or have never hired a foreign domestic helper before, we highly recommend you to conduct a walkthrough of your house with the cleaner. This is a good opportunity for you to highlight areas that he/she should take special care around and for the both of you to be on the same page.
