If you’re willing to do “deep cleaning” jobs in Los Angeles, for example, the site says the average freelancer charges $58 per hour. You can also list your organizing service here.

JiffyOnDemand charges $200 to have a three-burner barbecue cleaned; $300 to clean air conditioning ducts; and $150 for cleaning out a dryer vent.
