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. 

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.

Lupe was great! I was in desperate need of someone to come out last minute and clean my client's house. She responded within minutes to my request and showed up on time at 8:30 the next morning. Though it was a little tough to clean the house since there was still construction going on, she and her team left the place sparkling clean! I would definitely recommend her and use her again. Thank you Lupe!

We found ourselves in a time crunch, where we were moving out of our house and into a new one, with an incoming renter moving in sooner than anticipated. Lucy's was quick to reply, communicated clearly, accommodated our needs, and did excellent work. The cleaning exceeded my expectations, leaving the house ready for the carpet cleaners and painters to come in next. Thank you!

Alex & Viktoria are great. They did a good job cleaning my house. I had special request to clean the interior window and wood window blinds, and they all cleaned very well. They did missed the kitchen ventilation hood and couple spots, which they could do better next time. I do recommend the team for deep cleaning jobs.

Well, just say although I also keep my house clean, Cilene’s made it perfect (especially kitchen area)! She has pinpointed every corner of my house left no dust, and has also put things back to where I left them which is a very important quality to me! It’s a little bit pricey but I would still recommend her to anyone, especially those who need deep cleaning.

Hired them for a move-out cleaning for a 2800 square foot house and they did an amazing job, for a great price, on VERY short notice, at a house that had no electricity or water hooked up -- in the summer! I'm writing this review a year late because I just opened the app for the first time since and realized I forgot to review at the time. I actually just reinstalled the app because I plan to hire this business for another cleaning service!

Vanessa and Oliver did a very good job cleaning our condo with very little direction from me. They arrived and got right to work. It took a little over two hours to completely clean the 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and the rest of the house. All of the fingerprints were removed from the stainless steel appliances. Mirrors were spotless and the floors well cleaned. The company is very responsive and easy to work with.

Highly recommend OC Family Cleaning Service. It's taken me awhile to get on here and write a review but they were fantastic! Very thorough and the house looked amazing when they were done. Would definitely use their services again

The two that showed up to clean my house were on time but did a horrible job! One of the bathroom floors was not even touched at all. There was still fingerprints on all appliances in the kitchen, still crumbs on the kitchen island, still water splash marks on the mirrors in the bathrooms, etc. $177 is too much to spend to have to clean your own house after they leave. Update--KT is very serious about great customer service and he reached out to me immediately. He worked very diligently to solve any problems and did everything in his power to "make it right".

I set up a deep clean about 4 days prior to the cleaning. Overall very good work! I wouldn't say the deep clean was really "deep" but Camille did excellent with getting my baseboards and cleaning the fridge. I live in a 3 story townhouse and the bottom floor wasn't mopped and a few spots were not mopped on other floors but overall she did great! She was timely and professional also. For a deep clean I was surprised the vents was not wiped down but maybe that's not in the deep clean service (see pic). Bathrooms were great! 10/10 for that section of the house (which was one of my main focuses). Overall I would still use this service again!
