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.

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.

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.

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!

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 !!

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.
