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.

I’m a Realtor and my clients just moved into their new home. As a housewarming gift, I hired Star Cleaning to detail clean their home. They went above and beyond and did an excellent job cleaning the entire home, refrigerator, and oven. The mother and son team did not stop working until the house sparkled! My clients are extremely happy. I highly recommend Star Cleaning!!!

Ashley and her partner did an excellent job on my house and for a very reasonable price. It was cleaned to my standards and she was able to come just a couple days after I inquired. I will definitely be holding on to her! Hire her, you won’t be sorry

I specified when booking that I needed a deep clean and would be moving. The cleaning service I got was far from a deep clean. Ashley originally told me it would be $250 for a deep clean. I agreed and after speaking with her she said it would be $275. I agreed thinking it was a lot of work she and her coworker would be doing. She said they would arrive at 7am as I had an 11am walkthrough to sell my house. She text me telling me they would actually be arriving around 8-8:30. I was ok with the hour tardiness, however they did not arrive until 9:30. Then took an almost two hour lunch break. When walking through the house I noticed the bathrooms were far from deep cleaned. My shower knobs still has water marks, my mirrors smudged. The price went from $250 to $350 and she “cleaned my windows” and “top ledges” of my home as I have high ceilings. By windows she meant just the ledges not the blinds. Blinds not included I guess. I expressed my huge disappointment as we did the walkthrough and she explained it was due to the four bedrooms. However one bedroom is completely empty as I stated I’m moving. Three bedrooms have mirror closet doors which were also not included. When we walked through the kitchen I pointed out the greasy knobs on the stove. She then stated she only did the inside of the oven and did not touch the microwave or stove top. To my surprise she still has the audacity to ask me for $350. I explained how and why $350 was completely overpriced and so she lowered it to $250. A complete slap in the face and just flat out rude. I would never recommend anyone use this “business”. It is supposed to be a cleaning business however they stopped on the way to get “‘more supplies” (which was why they were allegylate) used my own vacuum, my floor steamer and also my pressure washer for the windows. Do NOT EVER USE them!!!!

I hired Annette for a deep cleaning on a new home we were getting ready to move into. Annette called the morning of the cleaning to let us know she would be late. She was about 2hrs late. I, mistakenly, assumed there would be at least two people to assist with the deep cleaning service. When I realized it was just Annette I knew the cleaning would take longer than I had anticipated. It took so long she had to come back a second day to finish up. During her time in my home, Annette charged her phone, checking it several times and taking phone calls. Annette is also quite chatty, which meant that cleaning was not being done while she was telling us numerous stories. She also spent a lot of time moaning and complaining about how hard it was to do the work. Annettes cleaning supplies are far from professional. For our hardwood, linoleum and tile floors, Annette came equipped with a dry swiffer and a spray bottle. Her routine was "spray, swipe, repeat" through the entire house. Needless to say the floors still needed attention afterwards. I also checked the cupboards after she had left to find that they were still pretty filthy. I wish I could post a pic of the towel after I wiped out one drawer! This was the "deep cleaning" service.... A few days later, when Annette returned to finish the job, she arrived at the door advising she had "brought helpers". Whew! This should go fast, I thought. Behind her as they walked in were her daughter and three small children, probably under the age of 6. Ummmmmm, what????????? Talk about liability!!! And very impolite to not even ask if it is ok to bring small children with you to my home while you are working. Am I supposed to watch them? Annette did not offer a professional cleaning service and I would not recommend her to anyone.
