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 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.

Luana has cleaned my home once now and I intend to hire her for cleanings every other week. She was easy to communicate with and her and her aunt left my house looking and smelling great.

I had a great experience with David and his team at Rent Ready. They came in and got the house cleaned up for our move-out inspection perfectly. They even cleaned up the garage. I’m certain it’s cleaner than when we moved in! I would definitely use them for my next move-out!

Choosing Nelly as our cleaning service has been the best decision i've made in a while! She showed up on time and dressed professionally (but for the job), and she did an outstanding job whipping our house back in to shape. I look forward to having her come again!

Lisa was a delight to have in my home. She’s warm and friendly and very thorough. She did a deep cleaning in several rooms and really got in the corners and made my house sparkle. We’ve already scheduled her next visit. P.S. My dogs loved her too. Highly recommended!

They showed up on time, early in fact, and were extremely thorough with their cleaning. I had guests staying in my house at the time and they did a great job working around them. Even my guests were extremely impressed by how detailed they were and how hard they worked. Will definitely continue to use them again!

After accepting the job, they canceled saying they looked at the calendar wrong. This happened twice until they called to say they could make it after all. It was Christmas time and a few of their workers had quit so this part was entirely forgivable. Even though I included the exact measurements and number of rooms for my house, once they arrived at the house they called me to say the price has increased from $250 to $500. When I asked why they said, 1. There were cobwebs and 2. The bathrooms were full baths and would be extra hard to clean. When I asked that they just not do the full bathroom, they said that they only do complete jobs. A pretty unsatisfactory excuse. I had already cancelled the other potential cleaners and so left with no choice a day before contractually I needed to be out of the place, I reluctantly accepted their offer. To be fair, once I accepted the 2x price, they felt bad and lowered it to $400 but still way more than other offers. They did a good job on the cleaning but I can’t recommend them given the above. Again it was the holiday crunch and they were down people so maybe this was a one-off but wanted to share this here in case these practices are a pattern for them.
