1) The problem comes in the definition of "Deep Clean" - some companies advertise $100 for what is really just a normal weekly cleaning effort. About as well tied down a term as the meaning of "is" for Clinton or "you can keep your existing policy and you will save money" with Obamacare - means whatever the vendor wants it to mean.

2) Deep cleaning can also be interpreted to include or exclude such things as carpet shampoo, hard surface flooring clean and wax, clean windows inside only or inside and out, clean upholstery, wash walls, wash and wax balconies and railings and wood stair steps, scrub grout (as opposed to just wash tile), move out and clean behind appliances, wash decks and porches and balconies, clean garage floor, etc.

3) The most common range seems to be about $150-300 range, but for a not directly comparable and pretty indeterminate scope of work. I have seen move-out deep cleans including all the above run about $700-1000.

4) My recommendation is that you google for house cleaning checklists using this search term - house cleaning checklist images,

then make up your own list of what you want done in the deep cleaning (and another presumably for periodic cleaning) and then Search the List for house cleaning services, select a few by reviews, and have them bid on the list. I would recommend getting individual pricing on each item like a menu, so you can see what items are contributing to the cost in case it comes in too high for your tastes or budget.
