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.

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.
Reviews for Lakewood house cleaners

I needed an URGENT deep house clean. Aliza worked with me as my phone kept missing calls and had Jennifer come out the next day. Jennifer was GREAT...especially in the bathrooms and kitchen! Appreciate that I could tell the house had been CLEANED. In the past cleaners would just "wipe something down" and not CLEAN it. Already asked for Jennifer to come monthly. THANKS!!

I had another company scheduled to clean my house but it fell through. At last minute with only a few days notice I was able to schedule them and then worked around my schedule to clean my house. They did a wonderful job. Better than we expected. We will be using them again for our cleaning needs.

Jose and Floricita did an amazing job cleaning my home. They arrived on time and both were very professional and courteous. I generally do not have the best experiences with housekeepers, due to their lack of attention to detail. However, both of them took their time and provided a thorough detailed cleaning. They were also accommodating to a few additional requests. I will definitely be using them both for future house cleaning services. Thanks again Jose.

Hired for a deep cleaning for a lg 1 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment plus a fridge cleaning and they did a great job. The only issue for me was they missed my 2nd bathroom because the door was closed, but they were quick to respond when I reached out and offered to return to clean the bathroom or give a refund. I took the return service since I just had a c-section and needed the service. Thank you for working with me, it was so nice to come home from the hospital to a fresh clean house 😊

We were moving into a new house and needed it deep cleaned. Cilene was great! Very quick response, was right on time, friendly, and did everything we asked, including a couple small things we added on 1/2 way through the job. Since we were home doing a few projects in the house while she was cleaning, there were a few things she wanted to show me as she worked to make sure she cleaned them as we'd like. She really paid attention to the details and didn't sacrifice the quality of her work even though it ended up taking a little more than an hour longer than she anticipated. I highly recommend Cilene :)

Dori and William were so very polite and agreeable with all my requests. My house is finally clean and my family is peaceful in their environment (which is home, ALL the time) during social isolation. I would recommend them and will use their service again🙏🏻

Wow the work that was completed was exceptional there were some things left undone like one of the blinds in the living space was not cleaned and the two blinds in the dining area were not cleaned. And addition the ceiling fan in the living room was not put back together into the ceiling and the ceiling fan in the dining area was never cleaned. Once they were close to completing the work I received a text with an increase in price because the worker said that they were working hard. I specifically asked for a deep cleaning and if the deep cleaning was going to cost more then they should’ve said that instead of bidding lore and then requesting more money. They didn’t on the text message complaining that they were losing money because they were at my house longer than they were supposed to be. It is not my fault that they did not bid properly but try to win the bid by under bidding.

The whole house looks clean and nice and smells wonderful. She is willing to take gentle suggestions and gives me ideas of things that might work well. She tries to accommodate my schedule and my pets. She has some helpers who work hard and are congenial, too. I'm very happy with Geraldine's services.
