I am pretty booking and doing free no obligation quotes for bookings starting as soon as mid March!

We are a quickly growing business who offers a high standard to detail and pays attention to your needs. If you'd like a direct quote text 947~2526 The biggest thing I enjoy doing what I do is being able to help others who's life's are stressful is to make one part of their life not stressful. Cleaning a home of where the people you love so you can enjoy your time with them and worry about what the daily life brings. However being able to clean a home where someone new is moving in also brings joy to my heart. New adventures and new beginnings for someone who's starting fresh in a new place where they can just move in and be there and get settled. Having OCD has made this easy for me to help you with out a blink of an eye.See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a house cleaner during the COVID-19 pandemic?

The best way to set up a consultation with a house cleaner during the COVID-19 pandemic is by using virtual, online tools. Start by performing an online search for local house cleaners. Message them to set up either a phone call or video call to perform a consultation. During this call, they can give you recommendations and may be able to estimate the cost of their services. Be sure to discuss whether they accept virtual payments and any precautions they can take to perform the job safely.

How can I find out if a house cleaner is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

A house cleaner is generally not considered an essential service sector during the coronavirus pandemic. To find out which services are considered essential, visit your city and state government, and read their guidelines. A national list of essential service providers can be found on CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 site. This webpage lists 16 different infrastructure sectors considered to be essential. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Can I use digital payments to pay for house cleaning?

Not only do many house cleaners accept digital payments through platforms like Zelle, PayPal, Square Cash, Google Pay, Venmo and more, but this may become more common as the COVID-19 pandemic pushes more service workers to digitize. This means you can pay your house cleaner without making physical contact or handling money. 

If cleaning is absolutely essential during the current crisis, consult with the house cleaner beforehand to ensure a safe monetary transaction that complies with current government guidelines and recommendations for social distancing.

Does a house cleaner need to enter my home?

Yes, in almost all cases a house cleaner needs to enter your home. However, a cleaner may not need to enter your home if they are solely cleaning outside areas. 

There may be some cases in which a cleaner is necessary. If so, take precautions — avoid being in the same room, make no physical contact, sanitize any surfaces and pay through a digital service instead of using cash.

Do house cleaners offer remote or virtual services?

House cleaning is generally done in person, but some may be willing to offer remote services. If you find a house cleaner’s profile that states they’re offering remote services, contact the pro to talk about your options. 

If you’d rather hire a house cleaner to clean your home when the pandemic is over, you may be able to book an appointment at a later date. Start by comparing local house cleaners in your area side-by-side.

What is the difference between a housekeeper and a house cleaner?

Although some house cleaning and housekeeping duties might overlap, a house cleaner is charged with the top-to-bottom cleaning of a home. House cleaner duties typically include basic and deep house cleaning, such as washing and sanitizing countertops, floors, tubs, toilets, kitchens and more.

Housekeepers or maids are hired to lightly clean and maintain certain aspects of the home. This might include dusting, washing dishes, changing sheets, doing some meal preparation and restocking the client’s groceries and personal care products.

It’s also worth noting that a housekeeper or maid is usually one individual employed to a home (sometimes hired as a live-in), while a house cleaner is oftentimes accompanied by a team of cleaners. 

How much does it cost to deep clean a house?

Deep cleaning a house goes beyond the surface level to clear out the dust, grime and gunk that’s collecting on the fan blades, hiding in the blinds, and built up inside the refrigerator drawers. Deep cleaning of a home or apartment costs more than regular house cleaning because it takes more time, effort, and cleaning products. You may choose to have a deep cleaning once or several times a year in addition to your standard cleaning services. You may have a one-time deep cleaning to prepare for company or to clean after a house party. Companies may charge an hourly rate or a price per square foot, or may offer you a flat rate after they have visited your home and estimated work time. The national average house cleaning price is $110-$150, with rates ranging higher for deep-cleaning services. Here are some examples of how a company may calculate their deep-cleaning prices:

  • 10 cents per square foot (compared with 5 cents per square foot for standard house cleaning).
  • $300 for a 3,000-square-foot home.
  • $25 per hour per worker for deep-cleaning services.

How do I choose the best house cleaning service?

When searching for the best house cleaning service near you, consider the depth of your cleaning needs, your budget and the size and condition of your home. Read reviews from verified customers of any cleaning service that you’re looking to hire. Also, check out the reviewers’ photos and do background checks on reviewers to ensure they’re not employed by established cleaning firms or maid agencies. 

When viewing house cleaners on Thumbtack, you might see a Top Pro badge. This indicates that the service is one of the most popular and highly-rated professionals using the platform.

This was my first experience with Ruth cleaning. Before this, I always used individuals recommended by friends for house cleaning. The high levels of professionalism and hard work by Ruth cleaning meant that the house was cleaned better than ever before and I was really impressed by the good job they did.

Ruth and her team did a great first time clean for our house! Planning to have her come every 2 weeks to keep our pet-filled house looking great. Really appreciate her timely responses. Attention to detail around the house was perfect! Love the little touches like how they wrapped this throw blanket up after cleaning the guest room (see photo). Definitely worth the price. Can’t compare to other cleaning services in the area since I’ve never used any other, but it seems fair for the size of their team and hours spent.

Today was the first time Ruth cleaned my house. It was amazing how clean it is after she finished cleaning. She is dedicated to doing her best. I am so impressed that I am having her come weekly. If you want the best Ruth is definitely it.

Ruth’s cleaning team did a fantastic job on a move out cleaning that was sort of last minute. I needed a deep cleaning of my rental house prior to moving out, and she did amazing work. My house was sparkling clean when I got home, and i know my landlords are going to be very pleased! She even organized my things that were left out which was very helpful, took out the trash, and I can’t find a speck of dust left in the place! I have never hired a cleaning person before but I am seriously going to consider hiring Ruth’s team on a recurring basis to help me keep my new place clean. I am beyond impressed, and I would recommend her team to anyone needing a great clean!

We have only contracted with Anchorage Forget Me Not. The service has not yet been provided. I believe, after talking to the owner, that I will be happy with the service and would be happy to change my rating to 5 star after receiving the services. Anchorage Forget Me Not did not show up at the appointed time and I was a bit upset. But I later learned there was a medical emergency in the owner's family. They did come the next day and cleaned my house and it looks wonderful. I have contracted with them to clean my house on a regular basis. I highly recommend Anchorage Forget Me Not Cleaning Service!!

Ruth and her team did an amazing job with a deep clean of the whole house, top to bottom! Safe to say, the house is absolutely sparkling. Ruth communicated with us throughout the day so we knew the best time to come home with our three pups. We’re excited to have Ruth and her team continue helping us on regular rotation going forward. Thank you for all your hard work and careful attention to detail!

I was a little nervous to have someone organize and clean my house but Ruth was amazing! I’ve had trouble with cleaners in the past who would just do a surface clean and not pay attention to hand wash only labels on my kitchen ware but she payed attention and hand washed what needed to be hand washed. She even put a load of laundry in the washer(but didn’t start it, just in case I wanted them hand washed). All I needed to do was press the start button. I will definitely use her again!!
