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. 

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.

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?

The house was vacant, being ready to be put on the market, so no furniture to clean or straightening up...the blinds were not cleaned, the window tracks were not cleaned, the laundry room was not cleaned and a huge smudge of something on the floor by the refrigerator. The house just did not feel clean. I let Tamara know of my concerns, I never heard from her again. Very frustrating.

Natalia had already rescheduled my appointment once to a day that was convenient for me which was the day before Thanksgiving. She assured me that she was going to be able to clean my house as I was expecting company for Thanksgiving. She was supposed to be at my house at 1 and be done by 5pm. She calls me at 4:30pm on my way home from work to say she is unable to clean my house, but offered to clean it on Thanksgiving morning. No thanks Natalia!

The owner was professional. The house was very clean. I could not have cleaned it as well as she and her crew did. If I need a housekeeper in the future, I definitely will hire this company.

Natalya and her team performed a deep clean of our house today. My wife and I just had a baby and so have neglected cleaning other than the most basic tasks such as dishes and laundry. We reached out to Nataly based on the Thumbtack reviews and couldn't be happier with the results! Natalya quoted us a fair price before coming to the house. Her team then arrived on time and asked to be shown around to fully understand what we wanted them to concentrate on. From there we left and took our baby son and dogs to grandmas house while Natalya and her crew performed a thorough cleaning of our bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen and floors. They even did all the windows and I didn't even ask! If you're looking for a cleaning service and live in the area you don't have to continue your search. Natalya and her team are an AMAZING choice for a cleaning service and we won't hesitate to hire them again.

Nanci is fantastic! She called in backup as well to help out with a deep clean of my bathrooms, general cleaning of the rest of the house and a “chaos / junk” room that was quickly organized and turned into a normal bedroom again. Thank you for everything! Truly appreciate all your hard work and help!

Beyond exceeded my expectations. My wife and I have two children and both work full time so we don’t keep the house nearly as clean as we would like.

Let's start by saying that I don't have a dirty house. I don't even have a lot of furniture, knick knacks or clutter in my house. I actually don't even have a coffee table. I have a dining table, a leather sofa, and the rooms have beds; not even the rooms have much furniture other than a bed (two rooms have a dresser, the master with 2 night stands and one other room with just a dresser). I posted the job for a deep cleaning because I wanted the stove cleaned and the refrigerator (which were in the quote), and a little extra attention to the tile in the bathrooms which actually had been recently cleaned (but I was expecting company so I wanted everything pretty). Again, everything was in the quote which was over $400 without even seeing my house (fine as long as its clean). Long story short, kitchen got cleaned (with my mom's help cleaning the fridge even though it was included in the quote), family room was vacuumed, bathrooms were cleaned OK, but bedrooms were quickly vacuumed and furniture was not wiped nor dusted (no there's not a lot of stuff on them they just weren't even touched). Leslie was paid by one of my older kids who was home ( I was not home) and she left without finishing things that I was charged for in her $400 quote. When I decided not to use her again I received several unfriendly text messages and had to tell her to stop contacting me. I already felt that it was unprofessional to leave and take payment before the job was done. I was not going to write this review until she became even more unprofessional texting me and insulting me. I'm attaching a couple pictures of my house (a week after her cleaning) as a reference in case your house is dirtier than mine, cause she had an issue with mine - said she was not paid to "organize my house." Not even sure what that means when you have so little in there to even organize? And no, for the record I did not ask her to organize my house. As you can see I do that just fine on my own. Just needed someone to help clean...I hired her because of her good reviews. Bad day maybe?

The house sparkles each time my team cleans my home. Even my husband likes the service we are provided with our team. We immediately know the difference after our team leaves that our home is clean and fresh. Being two working professionals, keep your home clean can be a task but we no longer have to worry about that with Natalie. The whole experience was terrific! There is nothing like coming home from work and seeing your house look and smell so great. Natalie and her team did such a terrific job and I can't thank them enough for all their hard work

Dora and her team have been highly responsive, professional, and exactly what we were looking for! Dora came and did a house visit so she could give precise instructions to her team, that saved me from having to walk through with the cleaning team myself. They have been thorough and consistent. Thank you, Dora and team!

I am so thankful to have found Elizabeth with Mollys Housecleaning! I previously had another housecleaning service that gave me a quote for specific cleaning tasks that were not completed so I was very disappointed and nervous to look for someone new. After a lot of research, I really liked the reviews and what people had to say about Mollys so I contacted her through Thumbtack and she responded immediately. I needed my house to be cleaned within the next 5 days as I was having a party and she was able to accommodate me within that time frame. We spoke about what I needed done specifically. She said she would do whatever I needed and was willing to do more if I chose to. She came with a helper and they did everything that I asked them to do with glowing results. I live in Elk Grove and our hard water is not kind to our shower doors. To my surprise Elizabeth was able to get 98% of the water spots off and I wasn't even expecting that! When they left my house smelled great and everything I asked her to clean was cleaned perfectly! I definitely plan on having her return. Thank you Elizabeth :)

Natalya did a great job! She accomplished every task I asked her to do and was pleasant to have in my home. I was getting the house ready to put on the market to sell and she made it look great. I was very impressed with how efficiently she worked too. I've already told my friends about her and the company.THANKS SO MUCH ALLFA AMAZING CLEANING SERVICE
Cassandra S.
Unbelievable! First, the person did not show for the agreed upon date and time, then on the reschedule date, they showed up an hour late! On top of that they wanted to charge me $19 per hour PER person for 4 hours! My house is NOT that dirty or difficult to clean @ $38/hr!! NOTHING was said in the bid about PER PERSON! I feel like a "Bait and Switch" victim!! Would have given ZERO stars if it allowed....
