I would have to say it all depends on where you are located...
I know housekeeper in NYC take according to area...apt vs. home & amount of rooms...
my Cousin's house keeper got 65 dollars for the day...not according to hour base. They werent home left her a key & she came & left as she pleased getting 65 dollars and did everything. (not sure how often!)
Mine on the other hand wanted a lot of money but knew my situation & i simply told her look I am gonna save up from my groc shopping but i can only afford 50 dollars when ever I can save it...it wasnt based on hours & i treated her more like family! She considered herself like a sec mom to me & I loved that relationship with her...so maybe she came once in like a few months but the place was in decent shape & was the best!
If it was closer to Manhattan(the city) of course she took more money. If it was LONG ISLAND...she really took a lot of money...:P
I would always give her things for the kids & the home...so it was all good anyways...:P
left her 3 dressers & 2 computer desks in excellent condition so...I am happy & she was happy & so was her family so it all worked out.
In Australia, if you are self employed and you are the only employee, you can demand anywhere from $37 per hour onwards. If you are working for cleaning agencies, they can ask for $40 plus per hour from their clients but the person who is doing the cleaning may only receive $15 or $19 dollars per hour. I think doing house cleaning as an offside job to earn extra money is a great idea especially if you are a very organised and enjoy cleaning peoples' houses. Most jobs are referral basis, which is word of mouth, if you are good at what you do, your client will tell their friends etc and that is how your business is built.
Here In the United Kingdom it is pretty well set close to the legal minimum wage of nearly £6.00 per hour ( 6.00 GBP ). Rightly or wrongly, it seems that house cleaning is something anybody can and will do for a bit of spare cash, it doesn't normally require you to travel far from your own home, and it does not take any special skill or training. You can do it without formal qualifications, and there are no reasons to expect extra pay for doing hazardous or unpleasant work.

Usually housecleaners make between minimum wage - $9.00 per hour. It depends on what the job includes, the housecleaners experience, and if they are going through a business or working on their own though. Most wont make much above minimum wage though unless they also are hired for other services such as cooking and childcare also.
My mom's friend gets paid 150 a day but their house is pretty huge.
i think its just depends in how big the house is
This is not a by the hour job, house cleaners usually bid the house.
I think they might make a bit more than minimum wage
