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.

Susan cleaned my house. She is pleasant to be around, works efficiently and knows what to do. She even oiled my wood furniture at her suggestion. I recommend her.

My only regret is not submitting this review a few days ago after she completed the job...I can't say enough about the awesome job Cathy did for us. We were moving out of a 3 bedroom-3 bath 2200' home and due to the distance involved in our move did not have time to clean this home as well as we knew the owners would expect. I contacted Cathy, arranged to have her meet us in the home and we did a walk-thru prior to our moving out. She brought her husband, Chris with her and we immediately took to both of them (he does help with some of her work). She knew exactly what we needed to have done and was very knowledgeable. We kept in touch prior to the move and on the day of the move she text us frequently - anxious to start the job that day! The move took us a couple of days and when we returned to the home we were astounded at what an outstanding job Cathy had done. My husband immediately commented on how fresh and clean the home smelled. Cathy had even cut roses from the yard and had them sitting in a vase for us. She also notified me she had found some items we had left behind and had them sitting neatly on the washer. She had even retrieved a decorative weather vane we had placed among the bushes outside and had forgotten about...had that waiting for us in the garage. Cathy was very thorough and I must say I thought the house looked better than it did when we moved in 3 years ago. She got it all - every room, bathroom, floors, baseboards, fans, blinds and more. She offered to clean the carpets however we both knew that was not a requirement being "normal wear and tear". When we did the walk-thru, the property manager remarked (noting that this house is now on the market) that she thought this house could be sold as is...it was that clean!! Actually the property manager picked up the cards Cathy had left behind! We had some issues come up during our move which I shared with Cathy - she was very supportive and I felt like I had found a new best friend! I highly recommend All-N-One Cleaning & Home Services...their rates are more than reasonable especially for the work completed here. Thank you Cathy!!!
