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 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.

She is punctual, professional and responds quickly. Requested deep clean. My house is pretty neat so I think it threw her a curveball. Great job on stove but only ok on refrigerator. Didn’t clean freezer or inside drawers. Outside of ss frig was nice. Rest of house was good standard cleaning.

We had our first housecleaning with Jancel House Cleaning and they did a deep clean. The price was reasonable and they did an excellent job and got into all the nooks and crannies. I am very happy with the outcome and look forward to my next routine cleaning.

Could not be more pleased with how my house looked after this cleaning. I had 3 of the sweetest girls that cleaned my home top to bottom. They were extremely thorough. From underneath couch cushions to clean baseboards, they did it all. I will be scheduling again!

Dust Busters did an amazing job on my house! We moved out this weekend and needed to have the entire house deep cleaned and they were able to accommodate at the last minute and did a very thorough job. I honestly think it will get us back a bigger chunk of our security deposit based on how clean the place looks. Will definitely be using them again at my new place!

She and her team did a good job we appreciate them. However, we just little bit disappointed that she said 3 people going to clean all the home therefore they will be fast and make deep cleaning. However she come with two girls and she leave the house 2 times for visiting her clients' home. We actually didn't looking for a 3 people to clean our house but it bother me the way that she convinced us to say "we gonna be three people" but actually it wasn't true.

LOVE these guys. They do the best job cleaning my house. They were so good that I ended up having them every other week instead of it just being a one time thing.

Amazing crew. I’ve never had a cleaner home. I was shocked at the details they found and cleaned. Incredibly kind crew, super personable and immediately felt safe and that I trusted them the moment they came in. Will be using in the future. Couldn’t be happier (this is the 4th company I’ve used to clean our house in the area) this is the only one I felt like went above and beyond. Can you just appreciate the shine of the appliances?! In love.

We had never had our house professionally cleaned and decided to have it done. We have 3 kids, and a dog. We were looking for someone to come in and clean it top to bottom. They did an absolutely astounding job, my wife was literally in tears she was so happy with everything they did. I am still finding places I can't believe they cleaned. I have already recommended them to my brother and a neighbor. Will certainly be having them back again.

This was the first experience I've had with house cleaning, and I just loved it! When my husband came home, he immediately said to get them back, and our family also said it looked great when we had our big party for my mother-in-law's 80th.

Jessica did an amazing job! This is my first time utilizing a cleaning service and she did an amazing job. The whole house was spotless - including the stove/oven, washer/dryer, refrigerator, toilets, and showers. She was very responsive during my initial request, followed up to confirm the day prior, and kept excellent communication throughout the day. Once everything was finished, she sent lots of pictures. Jessica was so flexible. My property manager had additional requests after she already arrived and we discussed services. Gracefully, she was able to accommodate us and do more than we had initially asked. I would highly recommend her services and utilize her again in the future.
