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.

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.

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.

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.

How long does it take to clean a house professionally?

Generally, getting your house cleaned professionally can take several hours. The time it takes for house cleaners to complete their job depends on the size of your home, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms you have, the type of service you require and the condition of your house. It also might depend on how many employees are cleaning and the supplies they are using. If you get recurring cleaning services, the first visit might take a bit longer than the subsequent visits. 

When choosing the best house cleaner for you, ask for an estimate about how long their services will take.

How much is a house cleaning?

The national average cost for house cleaning ranges between $25 and $50 per hour, per cleaner. However, the cost of house cleaning services near you might be different.

House cleaning prices vary based on how many square feet your home is, how dirty your house gets and how often the cleaning service comes. And, prices can be lower in areas with a lower cost of living, higher in big cities or affluent regions.

Some companies charge a set amount — such as 5 cents — per square foot, with a minimum amount, such as $100. You may save money by increasing the frequency of your house cleaning visits. Often a company will charge you less per cleaning when you schedule more cleanings per month. The cost advantage rewards your loyalty, and also reflects the fact that more frequent cleanings make it easier to maintain a high level of cleanliness in your home. A housecleaning service may charge more for the first visit or for one-time services than for recurring cleanings.

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.

My house was just painted and she came in and handled a deep clean and was able to clean all the blinds and and house rope to bottom. Very respectful and professional. Would recommend and hire again for maint of cleaning of the home.

Her work was superficial, did not clean anything properly. She just brushed through the entire house with no dedication, declined to clean toilet, my house did not look like it was cleaned. The kitchen sink was not cleaned properly and I can go on. A good example is my oven, where she cleaned it with some chemical and left the residue in it, we had to clean it thoroughly before we could bake anything in it. I paid 230 dollars for nothing

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

We just had a deep cleaning of our home from Lilian, and we could not be happier! This is a perfect way to celebrate Spring. They did a fabulous job; every corner is perfectly clean, all our mirrors and windows shining like new, refrigerator, oven, all of it. I feel like I’m on vacation now. Lilian was very responsive to my questions leading up to the cleaning. I have been disappointed with house cleaners in the past, but this is one of the best house cleanings I have ever received. Go ahead, treat yourself. You won’t be disappointed!

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.

Christina Freitas extends her professionalism and knowledge of understanding and the quality to care for another person’s cleaning needs and personal items. She is business and that shows in the person who cleaned my house. I didn’t have to instruct the worker, she already knew how to clean and use the products if necessary. A great and reliable service!

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!

We were able to book about a month in advance for a move out cleaning which was incredibly relieving to cross that off our to-do list. The house looked and smelled incredible and I could instantly tell how much effort and attention to detail was put in to the deep cleaning. The value was great compared to other local cleaning service quotes and I would highly recommend.

Showed up late with 2 people and then a 3rd person. Left way before 2:30pm in which she said they would be done at that time. I left the house and came back right at 2:30pm to do a quick walk through. Kitchen is spotless, living room floor wasn’t mopped or the base of the table in living room. It’s black and very noticeable. Bathroom is cleaned, missed a couple of spots on the counter. However, they did dust the house and it badly needed it! Floors in bedroom were vacuumed and mopped. I have a business as well, easy job. Was willing to offer that up with weekly cleaning service in my house. Not sure now. And I’m willing to pay.

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!!

This company sent me a text asking for a refund. I’m unclear whether Thumbtack would refund her or whether I would. Here’s what she texted me yesterday. “Hello Cj, if you don't need my cleaning services can you please cancel the job on thumbtack so I can get a refund since I didn't clean you home please and thank you “ Neither Thumbtack nor I should refund a service provider for a “NO SHOW.” In fact, since my husband and I had a house guest and we waited for her for two hours, having to cancel our planned appointment scheduled for after she finished her Deep Clean, she should REFUND US. Here’s what I texted her back. “Hi, Antoiné. We rescheduled our appointment for 'Deep Clean' for July 22nd, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. We waited for you until around 1:00 p.m. I thought perhaps a job just took a little longer and you were delayed coming by. My husband and our house guest heard you confirm for Thursday July 22, at 11:00. Unfortunately, you were a 'No Show.'”

This was the best experience I’ve had yet with thumbtack. Lilian and her team were outstanding and treated us like we were their only clients. We went with a deep clean and we’re beyond satisfied with the quality of service we received. Our house is SPOTLESS and does not look like children live here lol We highly recommend Lilian and her team; and will be working with them regularly, going forward.
