Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

How long does it take to clean a house professionally?

Generally, getting your house cleaned professionally can take several hours. The time it takes for house cleaners to complete their job depends on the size of your home, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms you have, the type of service you require and the condition of your house. It also might depend on how many employees are cleaning and the supplies they are using. If you get recurring cleaning services, the first visit might take a bit longer than the subsequent visits. 

When choosing the best house cleaner for you, ask for an estimate about how long their services will take.

How much is a house cleaning?

The national average cost for house cleaning ranges between $25 and $50 per hour, per cleaner. However, the cost of house cleaning services near you might be different.

House cleaning prices vary based on how many square feet your home is, how dirty your house gets and how often the cleaning service comes. And, prices can be lower in areas with a lower cost of living, higher in big cities or affluent regions.

Some companies charge a set amount — such as 5 cents — per square foot, with a minimum amount, such as $100. You may save money by increasing the frequency of your house cleaning visits. Often a company will charge you less per cleaning when you schedule more cleanings per month. The cost advantage rewards your loyalty, and also reflects the fact that more frequent cleanings make it easier to maintain a high level of cleanliness in your home. A housecleaning service may charge more for the first visit or for one-time services than for recurring cleanings.

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.

How do I prepare for a house cleaner?

There are several things you can do in preparation for a house cleaning to improve the efficiency and quality of the job. If you’re unfamiliar with a cleaning service, hiding and locking away any obvious valuables lying around can offer great peace of mind.

Depending on the preference of the cleaner, you may need to lock up your pets before the cleaners arrive. Washing dishes and decluttering the house allows a house cleaner to do their job more effectively. And leaving special notes for the cleaners about certain areas in your home that need attention is also helpful.

Ask house cleaners near you about their tips to help you prepare for their 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.

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.

Gigi home cleaning was extremely responsive to my request for a last-minute cleaning before a party I had. The cleaners were amazing and asked that I check everything before I left to ensure the work was done to my liking... And it was! Everything was beautiful, spotless, and the entire house was smelling fresh and clean. Thank you so much for your professionalism and excellent work!

Unreal. Consummate professionals through and through. I found Kelli on a Sunday, she responded right away, and came the next day to detail a very grimy house. The previous owners did not leave it move in ready- it took Kelli & Katie 12 hours to make this house so clean. They were thorough, from top to bottom, in a three story house. Worth eVery penny. If you need a company to make your house shine, this is IT! I wish I could give more stars!

The team from Green Girl completely exceeded my expectations. From the moment they arrived, they were extremely professional. At every step went above and beyond what I had asked and with such a positive and can-do approach. Very detailed, cleaned all areas of the house thoroughly including moving furniture pieces to get hard to reach dirt and dust. I’m hiring them as my regular house cleaning service. Well worth the money and very responsive!

I booked last minute and they tried to fit me in next morning at 8 -- that was optimistic, and it became 4.30, still fine. One lovely woman came to do the job - 3 br 2.5 ba house - and had just 2 hours. She was fantastic, but only got through half.the house (no kitchen) - but I got invoice for full price. I explain how lovely cleaner was, but only half house done. Half quote price seems logical. They reduced it by not in the mood to argue but will not be using them again.

I needed a last minute clean of our vacation rental. I was lucky enough to find Oly Ocean. Daniel was super responsive and scheduled a cleaning right away. The crew of 2 delightful young ladies showed up right on time and were very professional. They were even wearing masks and booties! They worked very quickly and efficiently and the house looks fantastic! I have already scheduled another cleaning in a few weeks. Thanks Daniel, Gaby and Mary!!!

I cannot recommend this team more! I was looking for someone to clean a house we’re renting for a few weeks. They were very responsive and very easy to communicate with beforehand. They arrived on time and stayed for 6 hours cleaning from top to bottom! I had asked for a deep clean. Their work is excellent, and all three were very polite. If I lived in Laguna year round, I would definitely hire them as my regular housekeepers. You won’t be disappointed!

Such an incredible job and such amazing people! We were in a huge time crunch to move and needed our new home cleaned last minute. Montebianco Cleaning immediately responded to our request (which was a HUGE JOB) and accommodated us the very next day. The house was immaculate upon completion, and they paid such amazing attention to detail. We appreciate you all so much, thank you!!!

Cali Home Services did such an outstanding job cleaning my house for move-out… this place was extremely dirty. Years of oven buildup, dust buildup in high places, dirty floors, you name it - now it looks like new and truly is cleaner than when we moved in. So professional, THOROUGH, so kind, worth every single penny. These are hard working and honest people. Trust their team with your sacred space! They will always do the most for you.

We had an excellent experience with Sarah! She was quick to respond, and arrived right on time as planned. She arrived with all her own supplies and did such a fantastic job cleaning the house. It looked so nice! And on top of it all, she was a very nice person and friendly to our dog who is a bit curious when new people come over. We definitely plan to have Sarah back on a regular basis.
