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. 

What should I ask a house cleaner or maid before hiring them?

There are many questions to ask a cleaning service before you hire them to make sure they’re the right fit. These questions might include:

  • How much do you charge?
  • How do you set your prices -- per hour or per square foot? Or, do you charge a flat rate?
  • What is your past work experience? Can I see a list of references?
  • Are you accustomed to working with different home or apartment types and sizes?
  • Can you work with children or pets in the house?
  • What types of cleaning products do you use?
  • Do you bring your own cleaning supplies and products?
  • How often can you clean my home?
  • Is there anything you recommend I do (or don't do) to my home before you arrive?

How often should you have your house cleaned?

The frequency you should have your house cleaned depends on several factors, and the best professional house cleaner can give you a rough estimate of costs so you can budget how often you need someone to clean your home. 

Daily house cleaning may be necessary if you have a home with a large number of bedrooms with young children and kids, although other homeowners may benefit from weekly house cleaning. A weekly cleaner can clean the bathroom, kitchen, do laundry, vacuum and mop. An occasional deep house cleaning is most beneficial for people who have recently renovated a home or are looking to do a spring clean.

They did a great job! They arrived on time, were professional, and cleaned our house top to bottom in an expert way. The cleaning products they used were safe and odor/fragrance free:. They stayed and completed the job, even though we went over the estimated time, so that our house was ready, as expected, to list. I would not hesitate to use LEIA BEATRIZ CLEANING TEAM in the future, and would absolutely recommend you to friends. Thank you for doing such great job and making our house sparkle!

There was language barrier as the cleaners did not speak English. Also some of the jobs were not completed. I asked for deep house cleaning and window cleaning: few windows were left untouched. The kitchen cabinets to be cleaned in and out as confirmed was cleaned only upper cabinets, bottom cabinets were not touched. The mirrors have residue and look opaque instead of clear. Some furniture was cleaned only on top not the lower portion near the floor. I didn’t even have time to inspect the whole house. This was my first experience and I ended up being stressed out afterwards upon inspecting the work.

My wife and I needed a move out cleaning after selling our house, before turning it over to the new owners. Renata, Fatima, and Santiago did a PHENOMENAL job. They spent nearly 8 hours, over two days, cleaning everything including our windows. When they were through, the house was probably as clean as the day it first sold. The price they charged us was an incredible bargain, and I cannot recommend them strongly enough.

They didn't remember our scheduled day and time. When I mentioned I am having a party and I was counting on them to clean the house. After a couple of calls, they agreed on coming to clean for a couple of hours and rest cleaning they will finish later. They arrived late and asked for extra money.

Renata worked with us for the first of what will be many cleanings. Despite a few hiccups on our part - she managed to clean our house better than I imagined. With a dog and a toddler our home was out of control, but it is sparkling clean now! I highly recommend Renata for the messiest of homes.

Maria was amazing! She was super fast to respond and could also come clean within the next day or so of the inquiry. She came on time and left my house spotless.

I’m moving and Crystal cleaned my house and made it “move in” ready for the next owners. She did a great job: cleaned floors, bathrooms, kitchen, stove, refrigerator, cabinets inside & out, all for a very good price. I would definitely use her again!

We had them come in to do a deep cleaning. They charged me 500 bucks and didn’t actually clean my bannister, sliding door and instead of washing my wood floors they vacuumed. I have dirty floors. And now that are trying to gouge me on a weekly cleaning. Over 250. Totally over priced for what you get. I don’t think they can handle large houses. I have 3700+ sq feet.

Christine cleaned our home this past Monday and she did a fantastic job! Our home is so clean and beautiful looking now and she really worked hard and aims to please. Christine is a true professional and goes above and beyond. She really cares about her work and about the people she is helping and I think that's what sets her apart from many other house keepers and cleaning services. She is a real gym. We have hired her to continue coming on a routine bases. I am so happy to have found her!

Beware I hired this company to preform Four services clean the oven and refrigerator and the outside patio and pantry closet. The refrigerator and oven were fine if you Dont think the top of the oven is included (Burners). The guy cleaning the patio spent more time on the phone than cleaning Pics were sent so they knew what was expected. Three times i told them not to bring dirty patio furniture in the clean house... Issues They never moved anything in the pantry Just threw or took home a large bag of christmas wrapping paper and a skull Never lifted up the throw rugs to clean underneath Never wiped or moved the patio furnitire cushions (leaves still there) Never wiped down anything on the patio This company needs to learn the process of cleaning top to bottom and to be detail and Actually to the job they are hired to complete. Also possible language barrier No wonder they wanted cash...

My husband and I both suffer from bad backs and we opted this time round to hire someone to clean the house for us. Lisseth was wonderful. She and her crew were very professional and on time. I felt very comfortable with her and the women that helped her. She cleaned my whole downstairs floor beautifully and I haven’t seen the kitchen and bathroom shine so wonderfully as it did. I would definitely hire her again.
