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.

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.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a house cleaner when social distancing?

If you hire a house cleaner to clean the inside of your home, do not make physical contact. Stay at least 6 feet apart at all times, sanitize any surfaces after cleaning and wash your hands thoroughly. Exchange all payments digitally instead of with cash. When contacting a house cleaner, put a plan in place to ensure everyone's safety.

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.

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.

Should I hire a move-out cleaning service or do it myself?

You may benefit from hiring a professional move-out cleaning service, depending on your budget, time frame and whether you will be getting a deposit back. Hiring a cleaning service takes the stress out of your move. But if you’ve had your house regularly deep-cleaned, or if your landlord will charge you for cleaning anyway, you can save costs by DIY-ing it.

How long does it take to clean a house professionally?

Generally, getting your house cleaned professionally can take several hours. The time it takes for house cleaners to complete their job depends on the size of your home, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms you have, the type of service you require and the condition of your house. It also might depend on how many employees are cleaning and the supplies they are using. If you get recurring cleaning services, the first visit might take a bit longer than the subsequent visits. 

When choosing the best house cleaner for you, ask for an estimate about how long their services will take.

How much is a house cleaning?

The national average cost for house cleaning ranges between $25 and $50 per hour, per cleaner. However, the cost of house cleaning services near you might be different.

House cleaning prices vary based on how many square feet your home is, how dirty your house gets and how often the cleaning service comes. And, prices can be lower in areas with a lower cost of living, higher in big cities or affluent regions.

Some companies charge a set amount — such as 5 cents — per square foot, with a minimum amount, such as $100. You may save money by increasing the frequency of your house cleaning visits. Often a company will charge you less per cleaning when you schedule more cleanings per month. The cost advantage rewards your loyalty, and also reflects the fact that more frequent cleanings make it easier to maintain a high level of cleanliness in your home. A housecleaning service may charge more for the first visit or for one-time services than for recurring cleanings.

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.
Reviews for Bessemer house cleaners

Absolutely the best company to use for cleaning. The entire process was way beyond my expectations. My house is like new. It looks and smells wonderful. They cleaned areas of my house that no other cleaner ever touched or thought about cleaning. I am lucky to have found them. They said they would be at my house at 9am and that is the time they arrived. They had all the supplies to do the work. If you want your house really clean Broom Sticx is the company to call. They will be here on a regular basis. Thank you for a job well done.

I am beyond thrilled with my spring cleaning service. With health issues, overwhelming new job and two busy children, I had let my house cleaning go. Clean in a Click came, evaluated my needs, never made me feel bad about my dirty house and gave me a quote I happily agreed to. I am still stunned how beautiful everything is. Highly recommend this company!

This was an excellent experience! My house was cleaned exactly how I wanted/expected. The pricing is the best I've come across, and she allows you to tailor your services as you need them. I will continue to use her for my regularly scheduled cleaning!

I hired cleaning in a click while on vacation since I needed someone to clean my home prior to movers coming in. I went with Clean in a Click. My dad let them into the home and since he was just house sitting… the cleaners did a very poor job! I had a 2650 ft home and they clearly skipped over many areas of the home. Mind you my home was empty which gave the cleaner open space to clean! The person didn’t clean the refrigerator, two of the three showers nor the base boards!! I was highly disappointed and spoke to a rep during my follow up call and no one ever called me back after I she stated she will look into the matter. Will not hire them again.

I found Petra on Thumbtack last week. I had used a service here in my town and been disappointed with the quality and price. Petra responded to me within minutes and came out the very same day to give me an estimate. She cleaned for me the first time yesterday and I absoultely could not be more satisfied. There are only two of us living here, myself and my husband. I keep a very tidy uncluttered house, but I can say that my house has NEVER been as completely clean as it is right now. Petra does a marvelous job. She worked for about 7 hours non-stop and cleaned in places I didn't even know I had!! She arrived exactly when she said she would and didn't stop the whole time she was here. I would absolutely recommend her. I'm very particular about my house and I just cannot say enough good things about her. Thanks Petra!!! See you again in 4 weeks!!! Update: Petra has been cleaning for me for over 2 years now. She is honestly the hardest working person I know. She works from the minute she walks in until the minute she walks out never slowing down. When she leaves, my whole house is clean and fresh smelling. All of my appliances, floors and bathrooms gleam. I have some amazing pictures to upload, but Thumbtack won't access my photos for some reason. Anyway, I 100% still recommend her. She is absolutely amazing!!!

Before working with Roosevelt at R&S Cleaning I had spoken with 3 other companies - couldn't find anyone to even come until the following week. I am trying to get my house on the market and it badly needed a deep cleaning. Roosevelt called back immediately and we talked about the scope of work I needed. In the conversation, I mentioned I had two light fixtures that needed new bulbs and ballasts and couldn't find anyone reasonable to do it. He told me his father also did electrician work. He and his father came out the same day, quoted me a good rate, and told me economically, it would be better for me to change the fluorescent fixtures to LED fixtures. They went to Lowe's picked out reasonably priced fixtures and installed them the same day. Since then, they have been helping further with the original project, including some work to the outside as well. I expect to use them for every handyman project in the future. They are prompt, professional, and the rates are very reasonable. I recommend them wholeheartedly to anyone needing a variety of home projects. C Saint Lewis - Hueytown, AL.
