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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Wow! My house was totally in a state. We recently finished a renovation, and had house guests for the entire summer, and on a lark I had a day that I might be able to bring some cleaners into the house, the team that cleaned my house was absolutely spectacular, they made me feel so comfortable and confident. The house is amazing, it smells incredible, so many little details have been straightened up. I feel totally at peace and so joyful to have had this wonderful experience. Thank you!

Marcelo was professional and flexible and came back to complete the cleaning as there was some remodeling work we were trying to complete. They were okay in terms of value for deep cleaning. Had requested for windows, baseboards and garage to be cleaned in addition to the house for the first time deep cleaning. I was a bit underwhelmed by the “deep cleaning

We hired Solutions House Cleaning to clean our rental unit after our tenant moved out. They were available on short notice, were very responsive, and did a great job!

I am so pleased with Prentice house cleaning services. They are efficient, professional, kind, easy to talk to, and amazing! My house looks beautiful and the owner identified all of the areas that needed deep cleaning before I even pointed them out. I am very impressed and would highly recommend their services to anyone.

I am blown away by how great this team is! I could not recommend them more. My house looked new after they left. It was the best clean we have ever had. Thank you

Hired this crew to do cleaning for my house. They sent me 2 crew members. They took 2 hours to do one bathroom. Every time I checked on them, one lady was on the phone and only one of the crew members was cleaning. When she said your bedroom is done, I went to check how they did, and they didn’t even do the beds more empty any trash cans. They left everything dirty (the sink, the drawers, dust everywhere) when I tried to talk to their boss, he told me with $350 cleaning service for 3b 2 bath they don’t do the beds and do do any dusting. I asked them they are taking too long and the lady claimed no we are almost done! They didn’t even finish one bedroom after 2 and half hours. Extremely unprofessional! I had to ask them to leave me house. They had waisted my time for half day and left me with no cleaning. I honestly don’t think the crew they sent me had cleaned any houses before.

Oscar was the first to respond and came same day to clean. He kept in touch about a slight delayed arrival, which was fine with me. I did not feel comfortable with receiving no estimate. Oscar worked with me to address that pricing issue and we settled on parameters like hours of work and target range. The crew cleaned the house as expected. The team is professional and efficient.

When I was too busy with work to get the house ready for a party, Wendy really came to my rescue! She was not only timely, but very efficient. She and her crew did an amazing job. I'll call her again for more regular cleanings.

I've hired several cleaners in the past and spoke to several recently via Thumbtack after we moved in October but Angelica was by far the most thoughtful, responsive and thorough person I have ever spoke when it came to cleaning our house. Angelica and her team differentiate themselves from the pack to the point where I don't see the point in contacting and "trying out" other cleaning teams. Angelica made sure that we got the cleaning our home needed, no stone unturned. Larissa, who came to our home to do the cleaning, even went above and beyond by erasing all the crayon scribbles on the walls made by our son. We didn't even ask her and realized only that evening when we saw that our crayon covered walls were now white again! We live in a 2,200 sqft house with 3 bed 3 bath and every single room was spick and span. She is also very thoughtful about asking how we want things cleaned and where we want more focus. A great dialogue is exchanged before, during, and even after the cleaning. One key point was that we have a one year old and my wife is pregnant so Angelica and Larissa made sure they use only environmentally friendly, non-chemical cleaning products, which I appreciated very much. I highly highly recommend Power Cleaning LLC and Angelica's team if you ever need cleaning services! You will not regret it.

Danielle and her husband's team have been cleaning our house for almost six months now and, I must say, they have been superb. I am very particular about how my house is cleaned and these folks are very very respectful of the unique quirks of each home owner. They cater to your needs, your methods, and do a very thorough job of cleaning. For example, we have a two year old and another baby on the way so I always separate baby stuff vs adult stuff. Without even me explaining, they would always use non-toxic plant-based cleaning products and are very careful with things/areas used mostly by children. Not only are they professional and competent in their job but they are also very kind and friendly. Always greeting us with a big smile and making our two year old laugh. Our son now calls them uncles & aunties and awaits their arrival each week. Danielle also has never missed texting me the day before the cleaning, both reminding/confirming that they will be coming per the agreed schedule as well as to check whether we need to push out a cleaning. I would recommend Limpex one hundred times over.

We are very impressed with the services provided by HelpHouseCleaning! It was an ongoing process from the beginning. I scheduled a cleaning through their website and they asked if we had any special needs. The cleaning crew showed up on the appointed day and did an AMAZING job! I love being able to add extra services like oven and fridge cleaning. We were really impressed and our house turned out beautiful! I highly recommend their services and we will be using them monthly going forward! We have three small dogs that they were great with! Thanks for everything you do :)
