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.

Do at least the work out f a regular house cleaner when someone pays for a deep cleaning. Which was not done. Shutters left incomplete dust on n shelf’s not even lightly done let alone cleaned. The list goes on and on.

Ladies, i was looking for a cleaning team for a longest time and changed too many! Cecilia is my choice now because she knows what you mean when you say: I need DEEP cleaning! She came on time, even 20 min earlier, with her own "tools" and chemicals to clean. I had this shower door which nobody could clean, you should see it now ! it is sparkling and clean! Everything in my house is white and gets dirty so fast! including floor boards which no cleaning lady even thought of cleaning, but Cecilia did! I am really happy and i hired her as my regular cleaning lady. Also, i wanted to say she has very kind face and personality that makes it easy to trust her. And they speak good English, so communication is great! Hire her and you will not regret it!

Didn’t want to write a review due to how nice these ladies were, but the more I look at the house the more disappointed I am. My fault for not doing a walk through of the home with them before leaving. I scheduled a deep clean and ultimately that isn’t what I got. I was a good basic standard cleaning. They did disclose that they don’t move furniture, so the dust and stuff under the furniture I did expect to still be there, but I didn’t expect them to not lift any items off dressers/ counters/ etc. the tops of all the dressers were still dirty and not wiped down. The tv stand/ counters were wiped down around items. If something was sitting there it was not lifted to dust/ clean under. We still had cobwebs in corners and when floors were vacuumed and mopped chairs/ items on the floor weren’t moved. Everything was just wiped down around existing items. Added on ceiling fan cleaning and baseboards and the ceiling fan in my bedroom wasn’t cleaned because I’m assuming our bed was underneath it. I did ask them before the appointment if items needed to be moved or take out of the house. I was told it would be helpful to move anything off counters but wasn’t necessary. Overall I’m just very dissatisfied with the service because it wasn’t what they described. I would’ve been more than happy to pay more for a real deep cleaning service. Unfortunately I wasted money on a service I could’ve done myself.

This was my very first time ever hiring someone to clean my home. That being said I was a bit anxious about the whole thing, because I didn’t know what to expect. However, when Rodrigo came to clean my house I instantly felt relieved. He was very polite and professional. His ability to communicate with me (and or other customers) I felt, was exceptional. I felt very comfortable letting him into my home and I was very pleased with their work. I would hire them again.
