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.

My house has never been so clean! I thought it was clean but, after Janette and Yesenia cleaned it was like brand new! My stove looks like it’s never been used, my sinks are so white, the mirrors are unbelievably clear. Absolutely every part of my house is immaculate. Janette and Yesenia were a joy to meet and I have arranged to continue having them clean my house.

I've hired Rachel to clean my mom's house for several months. My mom talks about how friendly she is, and always comments about how fresh her house smells after each cleaning!

This was the initial cleaning of our house. Julie was very thorough and detail oriented! She is very personable and truly cares about the work she does. The highlight was seeing the towels in our guest bathroom neatly styled like a five star hotel! We highly recommend Julie.

Yuli is a self-described perfectionist. She came to our house to give it its initial cleaning and boy was she not messing around. From the first moment I walked in, it struck me how the place was just shining. I'm definitely going to be recommending her to my neighbors my friends and my family.

Julie cleaned our large house for about three months. She did an excellent job cleaning, and she and her crew were honest and trustworthy. If those are the characteristics you are looking for, she can be a good choice. That said, we concluded early on that she is not familiar with some basic tenets of running a business, and consequently created some problems for herself that other housecleaners we've had over the decades have avoided. For example, when I interviewed her, she agreed that she would come every Wednesday at 9:00 a.m. to clean our house. However, at the end of the first Wednesday, she told me that she had another long-standing client to clean for from 10-12 on alternate Wednesdays, and while she arranged to move them to 9-11, in practice this meant that she did not arrive at our house until between 11:30 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. on alternate Wednesdays. Thus, she was not available to clean for us starting at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesdays every week, as she had committed to doing in the initial interview despite knowing that she couldn't do it. Experienced business people we know do not commit to standing appointments that they know they can't keep. As a second example, she routinely showed up between 9:15 and 9:45 a.m. when scheduled to start at 9:00 a.m., again creating problems for us when we had other plans for the early afternoon. When I talked with her about showing up on time, she dismissed the issue, explaining that her helper had child care issues, so that they would routinely show up late. Most service people with standing appointments understand that if they say that they will show up weekly at 9:00 a.m., it means that they will almost always show up weekly at 9:00 a.m. Everyone experiences exceptions (flat tire, big accident on the roadways, illness, etc.), but again, I can't think of another example of housecleaners I've had over the decades where the cleaners routinely showed up late. A preferable approach would have been to say, "I can't start until 10:00 a.m.," or whatever, instead of committing to a start time of 9:00 a.m. but never showing up then. As a third example, she did not give us more than about 20 minutes' notice when her schedule changed. For example, a week ago, we were expecting her in the morning, but around 8:40 a.m., she texted me to tell me that (due to vacations/holidays, I imagine) she would be cleaning the other client's house that week. Then she showed up at 12:45 p.m. when (until we got the text) we had thought we would see her around 9:30. We had a commitment for that evening, and had to rush her out of the house so that we could meet it. Experienced business people providing routine weekly service will generally provide 24 hours' notice if they are asking for a schedule change -- and, they usually ASK if the change will work for you. If you are home all the time (or give her a key) and it makes no difference to you when she is at your house, scheduling issues such as the above may not be a problem for you. As a fourth example of lack of familiarity with standard business practices, Julie handles perceived issues in a way most experienced business people wouldn't. In one case, I saw some bananas I had just bought earlier that day sitting in a grocery bag in the laundry room (downstairs from the kitchen). I asked her about them, and she said she had found them in the garbage and was planning to ask me about them. I said, "Bananas I just bought in the garbage? That doesn't make any sense!" thinking that my husband had been careless unpacking the groceries, putting new bananas in the trash, caught up with empty grocery bags. Julie later sent me a very lengthy text, saying that I had accused her of stealing, which had never entered my head. My comment had referred to my husband's approach to putting away groceries. Most experienced business people would say, the next time they saw you, something like, "Gee, I've been thinking about those bananas. I was wondering what you meant when you said, 'That doesn't make any sense!' when I told you I found them in the trash. Did you think I had done something wrong?" Instead, I received a very, very lengthy text criticizing me for accusing her of stealing, when I hadn't done so. I could go on, but I think the picture above is clear: Julie does a great job cleaning, but has some opportunities for improvement when it comes to communicating with clients effectively. She quit today (via text, 20 minutes before she was scheduled to clean) over the banana issue and two other misinterpretations on her part, but I had started looking for other cleaners anyway, due to the above issues. As my husband said, "They did a great job cleaning, but they were really hard to work with." I wish her well, and if she learns to handle communication with clients differently, I think she will be unstoppable.
