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.

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.

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.

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. 

What are the different types of house cleaning services I can get?

There are several services offered by professional house cleaning companies, each suited for a different purpose. These services include:

  • Standard cleaning, which is a basic cleaning typically done on a weekly or monthly basis;
  • Deep cleaning, which is a detailed cleaning with more intensive work than a standard clean;
  • Move-in and move-out cleaning, which is a detailed service preparing a home for residents moving in or out;
  • Green house cleaning, which is a service that uses eco-friendly cleaning supplies and products. 

Aside from the type of cleaning services available, homeowners may also choose daily, weekly, monthly or one-time services.

How much should you tip maids or cleaning services?

Tipping between 15 and 20 percent is considered an appropriate tip for maids and house cleaners — just as it would with a barber, food delivery driver or taxi operator. During the holidays, you might want to consider tipping a bit more. 

It’s important to note that some housekeeping and maid services might include a tip within the service fee, which should be explained to you in the service contract. Talk to house cleaners in your area to find out what's included in their fees.

Gutierrez Cleaning Services is awesome! They arrived on time and went to work. I got the Deep Clean which was worth every penny and more. They cleaned things I was not expecting and my house looked great when they were done. I will use them again for sure.

Please make sure you’re cleaning the floors properly and thoroughly, all of our bare feet were dirty within an hour after the cleaning crew left. My 10 month olds toes were black from gliding around the house in his walker. Underneath my couches were not touched at all, there were toys and dust balls. Overall my husband and I didn’t feel like our house got a good cleaning, and we’ve used different cleaners in the past but this had never happened to us. I wouldn’t use again or recommend unfortunately.

Karla and her team of home cleaning professionals performed a deep clean on my 1930’s hillside home, and I could not be more pleased! Not only were they thorough and precise, but they followed my “special instructions” for certain areas of my home (the job they did in the kitchen left me speechless!) and they performed the entire cleaning with care for the multitude of delicate items throughout the house. I have now hired Rios Cleaning to clean my home on a regular basis, and I look forward to the next cleaning update!

Very unprofessional.. waste of money. Two girls came to work. I paid for deep cleaning and windows which is extra money than regular house cleaning but they didn't know what and how to do.. It's very upsetting. I can't trust this app..I'll delete this app. right now.

Ana was pure magic! Admittedly, our house was pretty grimy and was in dire need of a deep cleaning. Ana fit us into her schedule within a couple days and was right on time. Our house looked brand new when they left. They were fast, meticulous and I’m so happy!! We would absolutely hire her again. Thank you!

3 hrs job done hurriedly and said that throwing trash is supposedly deep cleaning as well as dusting blinds. Accepted some clothes organizing as my apt. was small and not too dirty for $200. Anghe messaged after I paid her and commented that I should have paid $225. When I gave her the feedback that the trash wasn't thrown away and shower head as well as windows weren't squeaky cleaned but just dusted 1 room's short window blinds - workers could have sprayed Windex on the small glass window but no extra cleaning done even on other windows but refused to dust the blinds which aren't too many. Too much limitations for the project quoted for $200 but was incomplete. My other concern is Anghe confronted me about the extent of the cleaning to be done when it was very clear that i needed regular cleaning for a small apt. 2 BR 2Baths but the other bathroom is only toilet- bathtub wasn't cleaned! And clothes organizing was part of the deal she accepted. Anghe didn't declare advanced disclosure nor asked for my consent to video inside my house- and made it as a basis that it seemed that I told her I needed regular cleaning only when her team showed her a video of every corner of my house without letting me see them before sending to Anghe! This is not acceptable! Thumbtrack should prohibit videoing inside private houses without consent from the homeowner and getting approval and clarity as to purpose before sending them to anybody. Anghe didn't tell me all these ! While they're claiming that my order didn't match their expectations, each home has a particular need depending on the size and where cleaning is most needed. My regular house cleaner cleans thoroughly for $100 for 3 hrs by herself and I give her good tip and bonus because she takes house cleaning as only regular cleaning with my actual situation... she works with no limitations! I accepted $200 deal double with what I paid my regular cleaner who has covid so she took a sick leave... thinking that paying for double her rate will be much better- but it didn't work that way . Very frustrating- some people only want the money but hates or is tired working . I hope they improve in dealing with their customers so that there will be repeat business... Nellie

After calling California Cleaning Services to clean our home, we were very impressed with their excellent service. They cleaned our house to every inch of detail, leaving it sparkling. Throughout the entire time they asked us if there were any areas we wanted them to pay close attention to making sure they were accommodating our needs. At one point the owner Patrick came by to check in on the service and see if we were satisfied and if there were anything else we wanted cleaned. He was very friendly and professional with us and his employees as well. We are very happy we used this service and definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking to have their home cleaned. Very personalized! Thank you California Cleaning Services !!

The two-person team that cleaned my house did a great job. Some stuff was particularly well-done: kitchen counters, bathrooms. Other stuff felt as clean as I could have gotten it, if I had the time. Pricing was fair imo, as I usually pay a single person about half what I paid this two-person team and they were done in 2-3 hours.

Well the 2 Cleaners did show up. My only complain is that they hurried and finished the whole house in only 3 hours. They were mainly focused on Brooming, Vacuuming and Mopping. They said they did not have time to dust the window shutters but managed only about 5 shutters after many requests. They forgot to make the bed until I pointed out and did not dust many things like the fireplace mantle, pictures, dresser, wardrobe etc. They just hurried and cleaned the floors, stove, microvave and rug. The bedrooms were basically vacuumed and mopped. The owner David never followed up with me to make sure if I was satisfied or not. The cleaners did have good manners but the lady said she can only spend 3 hours and rushed out for her next job.

They charged me a lot of money and also called my house small and left a very bad cleaner from their team to clean who didn’t not even know how to use the vacuum. M daughter had to dust her piano which was untouched and not dusted or wiped, basic cleaning was also not done. She did a terrible job and I told the owner and she said she would give me a discount next time? What about the dirty job this time? My money is gone and I had to take 2 days re- cleaning my place. All kinds of bad behavior by the team and I am always very very nice to the people helping me. I only hired as my housekeeper of 6 years went back to school. She is still part of our family. I am fully disappointed and thumbtack this is the second service through you which has turned out a complete waste of my time and money.

I called Alex to come for a quote. He came and was professional. He was going to come Friday at 930 in the morning. He canceled on me at 930 in the morning. He said it was an emergency for his ladies who clean. I then asked him if he could come Saturday at 830 because we had to move stuff in our house at noon. He agreed again. The next morning he text me that he couldn’t come till 10. I asked him why he agreed to our time if he couldn’t do it. I asked him if he was really going to come so I could hire someone else before it was too late in the day. He told me to hire someone else. I was so angry that he broke his promise twice to us. Luckily, we found someone else! I would absolutely not recommend him to anyone. What a flake.
