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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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!

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.
