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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

For more tips on how to hire the best maid or house cleaning service, read our smart hiring guide.

What is included in a deep house cleaning vs. a basic house cleaning?

A basic house cleaning typically includes tasks like carpet cleaning, wiping countertops, taking out the trash, doing the laundry and washing dishes. A deep house cleaning is a much more involved process, where all aspects of the home are given full attention for a cleanout. In a deep house cleaning, the cleaners will wet-wipe everything from door frames to light switch plates, making sure to also clean walls, windows, air vents, ceiling fans, furniture and more.

How do I prepare for a house cleaner?

There are several things you can do in preparation for a house cleaning to improve the efficiency and quality of the job. If you’re unfamiliar with a cleaning service, hiding and locking away any obvious valuables lying around can offer great peace of mind.

Depending on the preference of the cleaner, you may need to lock up your pets before the cleaners arrive. Washing dishes and decluttering the house allows a house cleaner to do their job more effectively. And leaving special notes for the cleaners about certain areas in your home that need attention is also helpful.

Ask house cleaners near you about their tips to help you prepare for their services.

ASAP House Cleaning went above and beyond to help me get my rental house cleaned even though the power had been turned off prematurely. They worked in less than desirable conditions and did an excellent job. I even had to change the cleaning date and they were more than happy to accommodate me with a new day and time. I would highly recommend ASAP House cleaning. They are punctual, efficient and reasonably priced.

This team did such a great job on my father's home. At first he put up a fight, but after they cleaned his house he continued to state they did a great job and he now loves his house again. They did such a job, my sister and myself will be hiring them to clean my father's upstairs the week of 11.15.21. My father hasn't been too well these past months but since his house has been cleaned well, he feels a little better. And I hear every day how much he loves his cleaned house. Thanks again for doing such a excellent job!!

Absolutely wonderful! She is a hard worker, organized and creative, and affordable. She helped me organize my house when I moved, going above and beyond cleaning. My house always looked and smelled beautiful after her visits. You will not regret hiring Joy of Cleaning.

The house was clean everywhere I wanted and the team went above and beyond. Not chatty, trustworthy enough to leave unattended in my home.

I am so relieved. The house needed cleaning for years. My mom was in the hospital and now she doesn't have to worry about coming home to a dirty and dusty house. They cleaned the bathrooms, her room, changed the sheets on the bed, dusted, vacuumed, washed a couple of loads of laundry. Very nice. Can't wait to see the look on my mom's face!

I was on a time crunch to clean out my garage due to housing being sold. I notify James cleaning late one day and they were there the next day at 8am. They did a fantastic job and will definitely be calling them again.

Vandana and her husband were professional, thorough and efficient. We mainly wanted them to focus on a deep cleaning of our baseboards, windows, bathrooms, flooring and dusting surfaces. They cleaned our home from top to bottom. The finished product was impeccable and impressive. Therefore, it is without hesitation that I highly recommend ASAP House Cleaning.

Vandana was AMAZING! She was so thorough and so helpful, despite the mess our house was in! I will be having her back to clean again. I recommend her highly!

She was very sweet initially. However, she was 2 hrs late and the house was not cleaned. Since she was late there were other people working around the house and they both had to work around each other. The cleaning was poorly done. I could not tell what she had actually cleaned. I paid Ari the initial agreed-upon amount without seeing the job. She continued to send requests for an additional payment even though she was late and did not do a satisfactory job. Luckily the support team sorted everything out.

ASAP House Cleaning was great! I've used other cleaning services in the past that just had a list of "things to do" but they actually listened and personalized their service for me. I actually booked before but I had to cancel on short notice but they were nice enough to reschedule and work on their off day. I would definitely recommend their service and am planning to have regular cleanings with them. :-)
