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.

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.

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.

We needed help with a move out cleaning and needed someone on a very short notice. Candy responded immediately and agreed to see the property the very next day. She listened to what we were looking for and provided a very reasonable quote and fitted us in her schedule. Her crew left the house sparkling clean and we were very pleased. We are definitely going to use Candy Cleaners when we need any house cleaning help

Mara is great to work with. She was very responsive, friendly, and her pricing is more than reasonable. Mara's ladies did an amazing job with deep cleaning our house. My definition of "clean" is a pretty high standard, and I'm amazed at how sparkling clean they got my entire house. The ladies were punctual, friendly, and did a wonderful job. We look forward to using them for our regular housecleaning service.

Marisol and her team did a wonderful job cleaning my house from top to bottom. It was a thorough clean including blinds, oven, windows (inside), ceiling fans, even my dining room chairs! They were efficient, very pleasant and left my house sparkling. The first deep cleaning is of course a higher rate but here bi weekly rate is very competitive and I will be having her and her team back in a few weeks. Can’t wait!! Thank you again Marisol and Team, you ladies did a great job and I so appreciate it!!!

Nidy did an amazing job deep cleaning my house. She vacuumed dust and cob webs in the corner of the rooms I couldn’t reach. She did an amazing deep clean on my oven and everything looks beautiful. So glad she will be coming again! I highly recommend her!

What a great job! I had a move-in cleaning done because the house had been empty for a few months. They did all the woodwork, floors, bathrooms, kitchen and even did outside the windows because after cleaning the inside they thought it didn’t look good enough. Amazing! Very friendly and courteous and reasonably priced!

Nidy was punctual and worked hard to get our house thoroughly clean. She works on her own, brings her own supplies, and she was responsive to specific directions. It was a pleasure to work with her! We are excited to have her come regularly.

I have worked with many cleaners but never came across such an unprofessional one in my life. She didn’t mop and sweep the floor at the lower level of our house. She didnt clean the bathroom and laundry room whoch was included when I spoke to her. She just took the money and left. Please save your money and do not work with her at all.

Amazing. My house was difficult to clean as I had neglected it for a while due to work. I am so happy with the work. I felt my anxiety leave when I walked through the door. Her work is excellent and a great help to me.

House turned out clean enough, but feel I could have produced better results on my own. Shower glass doors were only satisfactory(1 reason for the avg. rating). They did have a step stool to reach the top shelves in the closets/kitchen cabinets.

By far the best cleaning service I have ever used! Karen does an amazing job and I think she undercharges for the type of service she provides. I have some physical limitations, work full time and have 2 cats and a dog so my house needs to be done weekly. She is great about watching for the animals and they all love her so I was very comfortable having her come while I am at work. You will not find a better, more trustworthy person to help you take care of your home. I had a big name service for years and they were very expensive, unwilling to customize your service and never seemed to get everything dusted or cleaned well even with a 3 person crew. The first time I had Karen come, I could not believe the difference in the house, it was sparkling. I would highly recommend this service to everyone.
