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. 

What should I ask a house cleaner or maid before hiring them?

There are many questions to ask a cleaning service before you hire them to make sure they’re the right fit. These questions might include:

  • How much do you charge?
  • How do you set your prices -- per hour or per square foot? Or, do you charge a flat rate?
  • What is your past work experience? Can I see a list of references?
  • Are you accustomed to working with different home or apartment types and sizes?
  • Can you work with children or pets in the house?
  • What types of cleaning products do you use?
  • Do you bring your own cleaning supplies and products?
  • How often can you clean my home?
  • Is there anything you recommend I do (or don't do) to my home before you arrive?

How often should you have your house cleaned?

The frequency you should have your house cleaned depends on several factors, and the best professional house cleaner can give you a rough estimate of costs so you can budget how often you need someone to clean your home. 

Daily house cleaning may be necessary if you have a home with a large number of bedrooms with young children and kids, although other homeowners may benefit from weekly house cleaning. A weekly cleaner can clean the bathroom, kitchen, do laundry, vacuum and mop. An occasional deep house cleaning is most beneficial for people who have recently renovated a home or are looking to do a spring clean. 

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.

Veronica was incredible. We needed a cleaner rather quickly and she was very quick to respond and help us set up an appointment. She was waiting at our house when I got there, despite the fact that we had only hired her a couple of hours before. We asked her to do a couple of extra things, cleaning the base boards and walls, and she assured us that she would do it no problem. She was very nice and professional and made me feel great about the whole situation. As far as the cleaning, we couldn't have asked for better. Our house look better than we thought it could, definitely as close to brand new as a lived in house could look. And can we talk about how absolutely incredible it smelled after she left? We have four animals and you would have never known that we had even one. Thank you, Veronica for being so amazing and thorough. 10/10 would hire again any time.

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.
