Question

What is the average rate of pay for cleaning 2 bedroom/1bathroom apartments, newly remodeled?


Answer

There is none.
Your return will be determined by the speed of your cleaning, the rates you charge, and what you must pay out in business expenses, including labor.
These, in turn, will be affected by the size of the unit and the condition it is left in by the construction crews, as well as what you must do to make it presentable. For example, vacuuming the carpets will take far less time than having to shampoo/rinse extract due to sloppy remodel procedures.
