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.

Had last minute change of plans and needed house cleaned for Christmas. Evellyn fit me into her schedule and did a great job on very short notice. Will be using her again in the future. Christmas dinner was a big success with 18 visitors and a clean house. Thanks

Ana's crew was efficient and meticulous. They did a move-out cleaning for me and the landlord was very pleased with the results, as was I. I would highly recommend Ana for all house cleaning needs! Thanks again, ladies!

I am pretty picky and No one cleans my house as well as I do. However, with no time to do it- I would recommend Nelly.

Teresa cleaned my house for the first time today. She spent way more time and cleaned way more thoroughly than I assumed she would. My house has never looked better (and we have two teenage boys and three large dogs)!! She cleaned the inside of my fridge and it looks like new! She even cleaned the vases I keep on the top of my China hutch. Im still in awe! I immediately asked her to come back on a regular basis. I would recommend her services to anyone and everyone!

Unlike my 2-week-late review, Akilah was quick to reply, schedule, and she arrived on time. She did an amazing job on our small house in 2.5 hours - which I haven't had time to work on much during the school year. I live in an 840 sq. ft. house. In 2.5 hours she was able to wipe down the small laundry room, my kitchen counters, cupboard doors, and mop the floor, clean the window frames and windows throughout the house, dust everything, clean the bathroom, and scrub my tub, which was horribly dirty. Everything was vacuumed and mopped everywhere else, and dirty hand prints from my kids around all the door jams that they like to shimmy up were cleaned away. Akilah has a great personality and is easy to talk to. She worked hard the entire 2.5 hours and my house was so much cleaner, everywhere! To top it off my house did NOT smell like horrible chemicals when she was done. There was a slight "cleaning product" smell, but it didn't last long, and it wasn't offensive, like bleach. As a side note - I was planning to be in and out of the house with my kids while she was here due to previous plans, but my youngest actually came home with a fever the day we were scheduled. He ended up staying in his room most of the time while she cleaned, which meant we all stayed. I let her know about the fever before she got here, but it didn't phase her, which was amazing for me as I really wanted to get the house cleaned before my husband came home the next day from a 2-week work trip, and I was too exhausted to scrub. It was an added bonus and worth every penny that I didn't have to worry about cleaning the house while my son was sick. I got to snuggle him, and spend some extra time with my daughter as well, which I normally have to spend cleaning.

I had a great experience with BR Cleaning. They were on-time and reliable, as well as quick and thorough with their cleaning. My home had recently undergone construction so I asked them to help me do a bit deeper of a clean including baseboards. My house is sparkling and smells wonderful. I'll definitely hire them again!

Scheduled them for a move out cleaning of my parent's 1700 sq ft 4 bed 2 bath home. My mom just told me they did an amazing job and she doesn't want to move now!! :) She will most likely schedule them to come clean her new house too. They were also one of the cheapest of all the quotes we received. Thank you so much to Jose's whole team! I will be sure to keep you in mind the next time we need cleaning services and recommend to anyone!!
