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.

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. 

When viewing house cleaners on Thumbtack, you might see a Top Pro badge. This indicates that the service is one of the most popular and highly-rated professionals using the platform.

Raquel arrived on time & asked for a tour of the house. She then explained how they would do the house & set off to work. I was extremely impressed with the detail she & her crew took including moving my sofa & love seat & end tables. I have a brick wall that they vacuumed & detailed. She washed windows & cleaned baseboards. The special touch of a toilet paper rosette in the bathroom was great! I would definitely recommend Raquel to anyone looking for an excellent house cleaner.

I hired this company because of the great reviews. Unfortunately, I had a terrible experience—TERRIBLE. I told Dina that I had never had my house formally cleaned. I regret saying this. I believe that she thought she could use my house as a trial run for a BRAND new employee who needed training. 2:30pm Dina shows up to my house with a young girl who was MAYYYBE 19. She walks her through and then leaves the girl here. The young girl told me this was the first house she had ever cleaned (and she was left alone). I leave my house to give her space. I return at 5:00 pm to find that she hadn’t left the kitchen. I ask Dina if this is normal—Dina said it was because it was the first time getting cleaned and it would take time. My house wasn’t filthy. I had a bridal party getting ready at my house the next day, and I was in my first trimester of pregnancy, so I was too exhausted to clean myself. 9:00 pm the young girl finishes. YES! 9:00 Dina did not pick her up till 9:45 pm. I gave this girl snacks because she was starving. It was incredibly awkward and uncomfortable. On top of bet being here for Not only was she here for 7 HOURS—she did not do a great job. She did a great job on our stove and refrigerator, but she did break a drawer in my refrigerator. She did not clean around the toilets. The picture is what my husband cleaned up around the toilet bowl and behind it. The shower walls were covered in powder. I mentioned it to Dena—she said, “at least it’s sanitized.” I mentioned that the floor was dirty. The young girl had a puddle of water on my bathroom floors as she was cleaning—meanwhile stepping around it in her shoes creating muddy water. I have white/black textured floors—they were dirtier than when they started. Dena did go over the bathroom floors again with a stiffer. She at first tried to say that it wasn’t dirty—until she went over it. I mentioned how the wooden floors were not cleaned properly. Dina asked me if she wanted me to fix it. I said no. It was 10:15 pm at this point and people had been in my house since 2:30 pm. This was an absolute disaster. I did not make a huge fuss or argument about it because I felt so bad for this young girl. I did let Dina know later how unprofessional it was for her to allow this girl to start her first job alone. She needed training. My mom used to clean homes for a living—so I know the expectation and the job. I was going to call Dina to have her fix it another time, but my husband was also so uncomfortable with the situation, he said he did not want this company back in our home. We paid in full and tipped the you girl. As a high school teacher, my heart went out to her. She worked her butt off this day, but it doesn’t mean she did a great job. And it wasn’t her fault. I hope this never happens to anyone else. Me and my husband had to re-clean our house at 10:30pm because we had people coming over in the morning for the wedding. Never again.

Amazing work! They arrived early and was able to knock out the job in a couple hours. They did an excellent job with the kitchen and bathrooms. The stove, refrig, and oven was impressive as it needed a lot of work. The bathrooms smell fresh and everything is clean. When they completed the whole job, it felt like coming in a new house. Money well spent!
