How much does a cleaning cost in Belgium?

February 25, 2022

To legally hire a housekeeper in Belgium, each client must use the service voucher system, called "titre-service" or "dienstencheques" provided by Sodexo, which allows the cleaning service to be paid by the hour. This service voucher system is subsidized by the Belgian government.

But how much does it cost to hire a cleaning lady in Belgium? Each hour of cleaning is paid with a check which costs 9 euros and which is partially deductible from Belgian taxes. It is an easy way to pay for the service and get benefits from it.

If you live or have your official residence in the Brussels-Capital Region, you can benefit from a tax reduction of €1.35 per voucher and you can deduct 163 service vouchers per year. It's a 15% reduction on the value of a voucher for 9 euros. This means that each hour of cleaning costs 7,65 euros 😱 after your tax deduction.

What can you buy with the price of one hour of cleaning?

To exemplify the value of cleaning time, we list four items that can be purchased with this value approximately:

  • Croissant + Coffee

  • Bottle of wine
  • Giant menu at Quick
