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. 

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?

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.

I have had a couple of disappointing experiences with house cleaners, but decided to take a chance with this company. Best decision that I could have made!!! They cleaned areas that I did not even know were dirty, my house hasn’t looked this clean in a long time. I strongly recommend Lesli and her crew👍

Dolores and her helper Rosa were terrific. They arrived on time, were very professional, and worked hard to clean my house. Dolores was very proud of what she and Rosa had accomplished when she finished the job. My kitchen appliances sparkled, the house smelled really nice, and everything was very clean! I was pleasantly surprised to find the inside of my oven and refrigerator clean! I have asked Dolores and Rosa to come back to clean my house on a regular basis!!! I'm very happy with their work!!! The price we paid was very fair considering all they accomplished!!!

Dolores and her assistant arrived on time. They took a look around the house and asked me what I needed to be cleaned. We decided that a deep cleaning was necessary so she did raise the price from the initial agreement we had. I was hesitant at first because her price was out of my budget but since she was already here and I desperately needed my house cleaned I decided to let her go ahead. She did a wonderful job cleaning my house. I really can't complain. The only things that I wished were included in her price was cleaning my pantry and the laundry room. Other than that I was very happy with the rest of the house. I am still not sure if I will hire her again as her price is very high and it does not include those 2 areas of my house. I would definitely recommend her to my rich friends.

Scheduling was easy. Debbie was awesome cleaning the house and very kind to my elderly father. She was communicative before the appointment and arrived right on time. Her work is high quality and thorough. Excellent experience!

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 😊

Staff was very detailed cleaning 2bd room 1 bath house. I was charged a little extra for Steve and fridge but well worth it. Ceiling fans, base boards and corners were cleaned. Very very detailed. I suggest being commutative and understanding with scheduling. I will be using services in future. Very affordable work and Awesome Work!

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🙏🏻

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.
