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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

What is included in a deep house cleaning vs. a basic house cleaning?

A basic house cleaning typically includes tasks like carpet cleaning, wiping countertops, taking out the trash, doing the laundry and washing dishes. A deep house cleaning is a much more involved process, where all aspects of the home are given full attention for a cleanout. In a deep house cleaning, the cleaners will wet-wipe everything from door frames to light switch plates, making sure to also clean walls, windows, air vents, ceiling fans, furniture and more.

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.

My house needed deep cleaning and they came promptly and did a wonderful job. My house looks fresh and clean and smells good. I hope to have them back and I highly recommend Lillian and her group to anyone who needs a good house cleaning.❤️🙏🏾

Lupita and her team far exceeded my expectations! I had no idea what deep cleaning was until Lupita and her team came to my house. They not only cleaned my house, but also cleaned the baseboards, doors (both sides), sliding glass track, window sills and inside the window track and ceiling fans! They were amazing. My house not only smells clean (not talking about an airwick smell), but clean! I've already booked her for next month!

Daniela's Cleaning Service was professional and responsive. They did a move-in cleaning for us. Great top to bottom cleaning. I liked that there was a set price for a move in cleaning based on house size. Lots of blinds to dust and it was all handled. Every surface was cleaned.

I was a bit skeptical since Maidly didn't have any reviews, but I had our first house cleaning service today, and we are very happy with our choice! Our house is spotless. I will be telling everyone I know to call Maidly.

She did a move out cleaning for me and the house was a mess. Fernanda cleaned just about​ everything!! Great job. Only one issue I had was I was quoted an hourly rate but she had failed to tell me the rate I was quoted was per person cleaning so I paid almost double what I was expecting. It was money well spent! They did an excellent job.

Lorhany and her crew were great! Real easy to arrange appointment. I did the move out cleaning and they did a wonderful job. We had been in the place for 15 years with 4 teenagers, can show a lot of wear and tear. Lorhany left the house with no sign of this wear and tear.

I recently had a back injury and was unable to complete cleaning my house on my own. I schedule time with a different provider that was recommended. She got sick and cancelled 2 hours prior to scheduled arrival. I reached out to Luana’s team in a panic as I had company coming over the next day. Like magic Luana was able to schedule me for early Saturday morning. She and her team were prompt. They came with their own supplies. They wrapped up in the time frame she quoted and my house looks great. If you are looking for someone reliable call her

I am going to be completely transparent with this review. Let's start with the positives. Thumbtack had an issue, where Jose was recommended to me even though I was not in his area. He still showed up to do the work for a reasonably adjusted price, and he showed up early for the job. The work they did was terrific, my previous tenant left my bathroom and bedroom in a horrendous state. The toilet, which I already planned update, looked brand new. I cannot state how well they cleaned the areas I wanted. Now on to some of the problems I had, I called Jose over three times and didn't get a callback. I only got a response through Thumbtack, the day before at 5:42 PM. I realize the booking was last minute, and Thumbtack recommended him even though they shouldn't have, but the responsiveness could have been better. I talked about them being early, but they were overly punctual. They arrived 2 hours early, and they didn't even give me a call. I live an hour away from my property and left work ahead of what I planned for that day. My house is spotless, and they did their job impeccably. The issues before the cleaning, while a bit of an annoyance, didn't affect the cleaning from happening. I would use them again if they would service my area; I would hope for more responsiveness in the future.
