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. 

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.

Celia and her partner did an awesome job cleaning my house. They did not rush and take their time to make sure everything is clean. Definitely worth the price they asked for.

I’m giving two stars because the women who came and cleaned did a fine job. However as a business owner myself I am extremely disappointed in them springing a new price on me half way through the cleaning service. I was originally quoted $110. I let them know I only wanted the 2 bathrooms, hallways, family room, living room and kitchen done. No one asked me the size of my house or really any questions. Mid way through the women cleaning I was sent a text saying basically stating they didn’t expect my house to big so big ( it’s a standard two story house we don’t live in a mansion) and I wasn’t asking them to do the entire house. See attached photos for conversation between me and the booking person. To me that’s completely unprofessional and it almost feels like they quote you lower to get in the house just to change it midway. I definitely will be looking for another cleaning lady elsewhere with more transparency and better communication. Also the young didn’t clean the sofa she just turned the stained pillows around 🤣

My house was a disaster and I was in need of a deep cleaning. They were responsive. The person who came was professional, and helpful. My bathrooms are spotless. I have spent many years trying to clean stubborn stains. Thank you for doing such a great job.

Lilly and her crew cleaned our house for the first time and they did a very thorough job. They were very detailed and attentive and took their time and not rushed through it at all. Lilly is a very polite and respectful individual who is very open to receiving feedback because she honestly wants to do a good job. We are looking forward to experiencing the same level of focus on our house with subsequent cleanings from Lilly and her crew! -Loann

We chose Lilian’s housecleaning for our monthly regular cleanup. She was the most cost effective but in no means lacking in quality. They leave the house sparkling clean: my floors are clean, my bathrooms are sparkly, my tp, Kleenex and hand towels are folded (like at hotels), and my beds are made. Even the dishes in my sink was washed. I wished they would organize desks, counters or toys/stuff on the floor (they vacuum around it) but can’t have everything. They wear masks and accept e-payments. I’m very pleased with my service.

Attention Everyone: On Wednesday Night I had arranged for the Couple House Cleaning to come to my home and clean all of my kitchen appliances and the rest of the kitchen. I must say from the very beginning the COUPLE was very professional, very informative, they have GREAT personalities and they take pride in their work and they are very passionate about their job. When the COUPLE had finished cleaning my kitchen and all of the appliances I was absolutely AMAZED on the work they had done because I can say HONESTLY the COUPLE made my kitchen and the appliances just like everything was BRAND NEW. I was very HAPPY and very PLEASED that the COUPLE worked very hard to make everything PERFECT and Looking BRAND NEW. After OBSERVING the COUPLE working very HARD I must say to EVERYONE if you want your home to be cleaned and done right the first time and you want your home to be VERY CLEAN the COUPLE are the people who will definitely make you HAPPY after they clean your home. The couple takes PRIDE in their work and after they complete the job you give them you will see the AWESOME RESULTS. Overall I say call the COUPLE to do the cleaning in your homes you will be VERY HAPPY that you did. Sincerely Robert, from Gilroy
