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.

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.

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.

A perfect clean! I normally keep a tidy house but a hectic week got the best of me and I just needed some extra hands. The team did a really thorough job and I was surprised at how much time they dedicated even though we booked a deep clean. Very happy. Very impressed. I’m back to a clean house!

The two ladies who cleaned my house were amazing!! They really went above and beyond. I only wanted my bathrooms and kitchen cleaned but they vacuumed the floors, dusted the bedrooms, and tidied up the whole house. Such great service for only $120! They were so sweet.

Isabela, Pedro and their cleaning crew cleaned up our almost done newly remodeled house well! We have a baby, and therefore the safety and cleaness of the house are important to us. They also responded to my messages promptly and accommodated to our schedule change. We are satisfied with Isabela and Pedro's work!

I’m new to using a house cleaning service and met Ashley yesterday to have our home deep cleaned. She was on time, very polite, and thorough in cleaning our large home. She took extra time in the areas I needed deep cleaned (teenagers bathroom 😳) and she did a great job! I already have another appointment scheduled for bi-weekly cleanings. Thanks for all your hard work Ashley!

I can’t say enough about the glowing review and the pleasure of having Jefferson in my house each week with his helper. Both are kind and trustworthy. I’m sure if they asked them to do something extra they would do so and I have a pay them accordingly. I truly couldn’t be happier‼️ Jefferson is a blessing. He is a keeper and now my house is kept clean.

I really wish I could leave a great review because they seemed very nice. Unfortunately, I'm not sure what exactly they cleaned. There were 3 people for my 3 bed, 2.5 bath house. They were here for 3 hours. When I returned, there was cat litter all over the floor, the bathroom floors and kitchen floor had not been mopped. The mantle, end tables and dining room table had not been cleaned, as evidenced by the fact nothing had been moved and was still dirty. The stair treads had been cleaned with something that caused them to be very slippery and my daughter fell down the stairs and injured herself. None of the desks or tables in the bedrooms were cleaned and there was no vacuuming either. I wound up paying $200 and had to re-clean the house myself. When I let them know of my issues other cleaning, she said she would use my feedback for training purposes in the future. Would love to have my money back, but I paid in cash, as her "zelle wasn't working". Do not recommend...

The crew members have reached late by almost an hour. I understand they got the wrong number of building but you cannot still be late by an hour. The number of house building was the only thing wrong rest everything was right in address. The gps shows 300ft away from one building to another, so I can understand 15 to 20 minutes. But not 1 hour unless crew has started late. The overall crew was good and did satisfactory job. We requested for a move in/move out package. So previous owner got it cleaned once already. But we wanted to get it done again before we move in. Since it was a move in or move out package they should have bring some step stools with them to reach to the heights. They were not able to reach to cabinets and other things which are at the heights. So they did not to that which I understand. In package they have to clean the cabinets inside and outside. There are lots of spots has been missed inside the cabinets. I have to mention them about the spots. After I mention them they did clean them. But I am still finding dust, spider webs which is left behind. There was one window blinds which was not rotating so they did not clean that window completely. The blinds can still function to go up and down. So window glass can be cleaned easily. But they did not do it. I also forget to mention if I would have mention they would have clean it. But why I have to say it, its not like a some spot which got missed easily. Its a glass window not any small area which can be missed. These are the only things I had issues with other than that it was okay. They did good job for cleaning kitchen (such as sink, oven, microwave, fridge but not the cabinets), bathroom, glass sliding doors, vacuum and mobbing floor.
