How to Create a House Cleaning Invoice + Template & Sample

Creating a house cleaning invoice may seem like a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be. There are some essential elements that all house cleaning invoices should include and, by following a simple template, you can create an invoice that is both professional and accurate. In this article, we will provide you with everything you need to know about creating a house cleaning invoice, including a template and a sample for reference.


Essential Elements For a House Cleaning Invoice

There are several essential elements that should be included on every house cleaning invoice in order to make it complete and accurate. These include:

Your Contact Details: This should include your name, business name, address, phone number, and email address.

Your Client’s Information: This should include your client’s name, address, and phone number.

Services Rendered: This is a list of the agreed-upon services that you provided to your client during the house cleaning appointment. Be sure to include time spent, specific requests fulfilled and include any unanticipated tasks that were requested on site and fulfilled. 

Fees For Each Service: List the fees for each service that you provided. Include any unanticipated costs that were incurred on site as a result of client requests. Be sure to include any discounts or promotions that were offered.

Terms for Payment:  It is very important that you include information regarding the client’s deadline to pay for your services. For example, you may state on your invoice, “Net due in 10 days,” or “Net due upon receipt of invoice.”  Businesses often allow 30 days, “Net due in 30 days,” however, cleaning services are often due upon receipt of the invoice. The request you choose to make may vary, depending on your client. However, you should always include the deadline for payment and your expectation of timely payment.
