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.

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.

Response was super fast. I had my cleaner cancel. They responded and were out at my house within a couple of hours. They were in communication throughout the entire process. While here they were quick and thorough. I can’t believe how clean they got my house in such a small amount of time, not a spot was left untouched. The ladies that came were extremely sweet.

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.

My house looked amazing! They cleaned it the way I wanted. So professional, they made sure we did a walk through before and after. They are definitely going to be my new monthly cleaning crew. Super friendly and nice women.

I was at work while they cleaned my house so my mother was home to instruct them in what needed done. Being a retired cleaner herself she new how to tell if another cleaner new their business or not. Thankfully they thoroughly impressed my mother with their work and she is one hard lady to impress.

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.

Dulce and her team did an AMAZING job on my house. I had just got new floors installed so my house was dusty and needed some deep cleaning. She did a tremendous job. I appreciate their hard work and attention to detail. My house smelled and looked stunning after they left. I have absolutely no complaints. I plan to use her again soon!
