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.

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.

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.

How long does it take to clean a house professionally?

Generally, getting your house cleaned professionally can take several hours. The time it takes for house cleaners to complete their job depends on the size of your home, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms you have, the type of service you require and the condition of your house. It also might depend on how many employees are cleaning and the supplies they are using. If you get recurring cleaning services, the first visit might take a bit longer than the subsequent visits. 

When choosing the best house cleaner for you, ask for an estimate about how long their services will take.

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.

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.

Very happy with their service. I asked them to help clean my sister's house and my sister was stunned by their professionalism and their punctuality and they left her house with a hotel feel. All my extended family members now are asking for their numbers and had them clean their houses too. I definitely recommend them to everyone

Brenda came out to clean my house and did a wonderful job. I usually do the cleaning myself, but don't get to the stuff that never gets done due to a lack of time. She and her partner did a wonderful job dusting stuff high and low that I don't usually bother with. They were very thorough and did a great job. It was nice to wake up to a clean house that I didn't have to clean myself.

Well, let me tell you! The lady that cleaned my house for over 20 years retired last November. I’ve been off from work due to health issues for a while. I completed the Thumbtack request and we scheduled for two ladies to come do a deep clean on my house today. These wonderful ladies (Gloria and Patsy) texted me early this morning to say they would be helping a neighbor whose house flooded because of the heavy rains. These two ladies came to my house and they are a whirlwind of cleaning. They even cleaned my plantation shutters and ceiling fans, lights and blades. My house is now clean! Yay!! The price they negotiated was, in MY opinion, too low, so I raised it! How often does THAT happen. THESE LADIES ARE AMAZING, NICE, RESPECTFUL AND THOROUGH!! I’m thankful I found them. Thank you, Gloria and Patsy, for taking care of me and my house! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I look forward to a long, happy relationship!!

Patty was amazing. I was shocked to come and see my oven clean and my carpet cleaned along with the rest of the house in such a short time. She hustles. I will be using her monthly as well as my neighbor and friend. She got three jobs for answering one ad

These ladies did an awesome job cleaning my house. They were professional, yet personable. Great communications skills! They actually exceeded my expectations. I love the service and their flexibility. I will continue to use San Diego Maid Company on a bi-weekly schedule.

Crystal was very communicative, she explained pricing clearly, worked out a good time. She was prompt and had all her own supplies. The house smelled AMAZING. Not like chemicals but CLEAN, before she was even done I could smell how clean she was getting it. She got a large hard water stain out of the bathroom tub that I thought was terminated. She cleaned behind and around the toilets! Great job! I planned on initially hiring someone to do big cleanings once every-other-month or once a month but she did such a good job we will have her come back every 2 weeks.

First of all, the team showed up and hour and 10 minutes late. once they got there they started off well as I came back to check there were multiple things not done. dust still everywhere in my house and ground, no light switches cleaned, my kitchen with smudges everywhere, dirt on the ground just not cleaned right for the price. Also to mention one if the girls was doing school as well as cleaning so clearly full attention wasent one my service! The owner or person who runs this is very rude and shouldn’t talk to there clients the way they did to me. Don’t recommend!

I was very pleased with the job done. My house has never looked better. I was skeptical because of a few of the reviews. I have a large 4 bedroom 3 bath that was deep cleaned. They had their work cut out for them. They did an excellent job. They are very personable, professional, and thorough. Definitely will be having them back. Well done ladies.

Total Maid came in the day after initial message and gave us the deep clean package. Very fast to clean my very large house. They worked very hard and got all the areas I requested and did a great job with surfaces and areas that needed a lot of work. Many corners found later still had quite a bit of dust and they didn't move things around to get under or around many things at all, but we had a lot of stuff out at the time so it was understandable. For such short notice and a big project, they did a good job at a very reasonable price!

I am actually blown away. Lily and Ryan did an absolutley outstanding job. We have 3 dogs and 2 cats and my husband and I both work full time so cleaning has.. not happend much. I am beyond pleased with their work, professionalism, detail, and cost. We will have them come back every two weeks. My house literally smells like the carpets were shampooed. The details were extra appreciated, like the sweet fold at the end of the paper towl and toilet paper. Makes me feel extremely pampered. I can not recommend enough! THANK YOU GUYS! ~
