Your burning questions: answered

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.

Reviews for Escondido house cleaners
Amber D.
Stephanie did an amazing job of “house cleaning”. She is true to here word of house cleaning. She cleans the house only. This is only shower, floors, oven, walls, counters. Stephanie services would be best for move out cleaning. Beware she will not pick up items or arrange items to make the house look clean. She will clean around or under the items and places the items back how she found them. So if the counter was a messy with items, you will get a clean counter but with all the disarray of items on top of the clean. She does a great job of cleaning, but when the house is not picked up, counters not arranged, beds not made, fridge not clean, sofas not wiped down, entertainment center not dusted, tables not wiped then the house will still look dirty.

10th month of remodeling and construction needing a deep clean and post-construction dust removal. Re-Plumb, Full Gut Kitchen, and Flooring left extensive impact throughout the house and on our family's health. We cleaned as we moved from phase to phase, but Maria and Ophelia came in and finished off all the places we hadn't gotten to leaving the house smelling clean and shining bright. Hard-working, pleasant and thorough.

I am still in shock over how great of a job these guys did at my house! My house is small and contains dogs and cats, so it is quite a challenge to clean and organize. I was just going to have them clean the kitchen and bathroom but after they got here they said "oh no problem, we can take care of that too." I am wildly happy with the results and you can bet that I will be calling them again! Very grateful for the outstanding job!

Brenda went above and beyond to clean my house that was infested with pet hair! She was flexible with everything, and she did an incredible job! Not only was her cleaning amazing, but she worked extra long just to make sure everything was done perfectly. I will definitely continue to hire her as long as she is available!

I have been through a lot of cleaners lately - we have lots of foster dogs here and the place gets very dusty and hairy very quickly. Rodriguez house cleaning was on time, polite, thorough and yet efficient. The place looked amazing - better than any of their predecessors. I hope they will be back every Saturday!!!

I had Bclean do a deep cleaning on about 3000 sq ft of my house. The house had not been cleaned for quite a while because I broke my ankle and I have four cats, making a cat hair mess. The girls were very good. They worked all day (8:30 to 4:30) and did not stop until they were done. The service was very reasonable priced, they were on time and very professional. I would recommend you try them, I don't think you will be disappointed.

Francisca was incredibly responsive, and quoted me a competitive price. She showed up on time with another person, and they completed the job in a timely and efficient manner. I checked the house, and I could tell that they worked very hard at cleaning. Everything was very shiny and clean, and they even cleaned under furniture, which was a big plus for me! I’ve already recommended her to my parents, and I will definitely be using her in the future! Highly recommend!

I needed my house clean last minute and Peggy responded to my request and was willing to come Saturday afternoon. Peggy is very attentive and nice. I was happy with the job, however there were few areas and minor details that were not done but nonetheless, Peggy and the other person she brought in did a great job. I would recommend her for you cleaning needs. Thanks!

Francesca and Carla got right to work and worked very quickly. My wood floor is painted white and it has never been so clean. A few things were missed so I took away one star but I think they may have been on a time crunch. I would like them to come back however, because even though a few things were missed (coffee pot was not cleaned, trash in bathroom not emptied, dishes not put away) my house was very clean.

Jillian U.
I hired her to do clean out service and have been waiting for an hour. I called her 10 minutes after the appointment time and she said she was 12 minutes away. I have now waited another 30 minutes and called twice with no answer. So unprofessional and ruined our timeline for moving into our new house. Do not hire her unless you want to have an unreliable cleaning service.
