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.

We needed our house cleaned last minute with same-day service. Maria was available and did a wonderful job! She responds quickly, is very nice, and does a very thorough clean. We will definitely use her house cleaning again!

We had Shelby do a standard cleaning and the house looks great! She's flexible to meet our timing needs and provided extra cleaning services and insight into what else may need to be done next time. We're booking her again and can't wait to experience the clean house feeling again soon!

Excellent work. I would highly recommend Home Sweet Home. They were very careful with cleaning blinds and appliances and the house was very very clean.

Adela and Candy did a terrific job cleaning my house. Our hard wood floors, kitchen and bathrooms were thoroughly cleaned. The ladies were on time, extremely pleasant and easy to work with. We are very pleased!

Anthony and Fantasy did a thorough job cleaning our house; the windows and mirrors never looked so good. They were good with the estimate of how long it would take to deep clean, hard working, and the house looks great! Only room for improvement is that the floors could have been mopped a little more thoroughly. Am looking forward to having them back again soon!

Elizabeth and her team were fantastic. My house has rarely been this clean and sparkling. She is a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend this company.

Mindy’s service is superb. She has cleaned my house thoroughly and really went above and beyond. She is also flexible and open to accommodate individual preferences on how to do things, which for me is important. I am very happy to have found her!

Nanci and her crew are awesome! A couple years ago we had a different cleaning service come that added a ton of additional charges and even broke some of our belongings so we were apprehensive about scheduling another cleaning. A short notice walkthrough by our landlord put us in the position to seek out help once again despite our past negative experience. Thankfully, we found Peace of Mind Cleaning and they lived up to their name. Nanci called me the day before our appointment to confirm and go over safety protocols due to Covid, which made us feel safe and at ease. I was also able to explain our space and what we needed to get a quote rather than doing a walkthrough. The day of our cleaning, Nanci's crew arrived on time and completely prepared. We had a friend come to help with some minor construction repairs and they were more than willing to coordinate so we could get everything done. The cleaners (I wish I remembered their names) were very kind, professional, and left our house looking pristine. They even stayed for additional time (they asked of course) and then Nanci asked if I would be willing to pay a very small amount extra when I spoke with her! So much different than my last experience. I was obviously willing considering the quality of work. We are even considering scheduling monthly cleanings since we had such a positive experience!
