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. 

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.

I used to hire on Amazon cleaning, they usually only worked on the 4bedrooms house for less than 2hrs, with hair in the sink and stuff, I had to clean the house myself afterward. With G Cleaning, the story is different. For less the money, two hardworking people did detailed cleaning for 4.5hrs, everything looks brand new! We are really happy about this experience. Will definitely hire again!

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.

Rosa and her team were amazing. They did a beautiful deep clean of my house. It went from looking like a college frat house (I live with all male roommates) to a semblance of an orderly family home. They did a great job.

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.

Mariela and her companion spent 4 hrs cleaning my house and it was immaculate. We left the house and came home to a subtle scent of lemon all throughout the home. She and her partner cleaned our bathrooms, floors, interior windows and her attention to detail was amazing. She even moved some of our kitchen items around to clean and her design choices were better than what they had been before! We are sticking with Mariela’s opinions, haha. All in all, I highly recommend Daniela Rios Cleaning Service and we will very likely use them again in the future.

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.

I was not happy with the service I received. There were several areas in my house (pantry/foyer/furniture), that were never touched. I have a 4 bedroom and I only ask that 2 rooms are cleaned. My home is cleaned BI-weekly and this was the worst I have ever received for job that’s so easy. I would not hire them again.

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.

Mariana, Was very responsive to my request and accommodating also to my time frame, the day of my appointment I was running a little bit behind on some things and she with no problem reset the time for arrival. As far as work she was great and open to any of my request as far as things needed around the house and did a great job at everything that was asked of her. I highly recommend anyone who needs a little help around the house or a personal cleaner to reach out to Mariana, also great personality and very friendly!

I hired Luana's house keeping service because my doctor insisted I take some stress off of me. I spoke to her several times regular ding what I wanted and asked her to send me a list of what her quote included. She never sent the detailed list, but I hired her and explained what I would like. She then quoted 140 sent a time to come the next day at 4. The next day I asked (for future reference) doesn't she do appliances, laundry, walls. She stated that was apart of a deep clean and offered that service. I declined at that time. I then asked her if wiping down counter tops (bathroom/ kitchen) was included as I forgot to mention it (though it should be obvious with a basic cleaning). She then stated it was not included. So I asked her to break down what she considers standard cleaning so I know what services she is offering. This wasn't nearly all the stuff I had asked her to do. So I waited patiently for our 4pm appointment and I was going to show her my place and needs to see if she was willing to do that or how much it would be. At 4:25, I text her asking what time will be be arriving. She asks me if want the basic cleaning or not. I told her yes, we had already agreed on the basic cleaning and the price. She literally replies: "Yes but you prefer not think about it and choose another day for deep cleaning? I not want you to be dissatisfied with my work. you understand?" I can not believe that at almost 5 PM she just tells me she isn't coming and I need to choose another day for deep cleaning when I stated I didn't need deep cleaning. That is very unprofessional. This is not my idea of stess release. Now instead of spending the afternoon outside with the kids, I'm cleaning.
