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.

Well my rental home is small 1150 square ft and empty since my tenants moved out. I have been cleaning myself to show the property but thought I could use a little help. 3 woman came to my house more than 1 & 1/2 hours late. Charged me $250.00 (well more than I was told and said they worked 3 hours. 3 people at 3 hours each is 9 hours of cleaning combined. My husband and I had to re-clean the windows and mirrors. She didn't even clean places on the stove that I pointed out to her. It was terrible. 9 hours cleaning a very small empty house. We are VERY disappointed and will NEVER use them again!!! 😡

I’m very happy with Sparklean They’re very responsive. Friendly, Hard working and did a great job. I was moving out of a 3 Bedroom, Two bath rental which I shared with two others and a Dog for 10 years. They did a thorough job in one day at a very reasonable price. I would recommend them to who ever needs there house cleaned whether moving or not

We just had our flooring installed and had dust everywhere. After a long few days of installation i didn't have the energy to tackle the mess that was ahead to getting our house back to living condition. I messaged Sonia and received a response right away. She met with me an hour later, as agreed, and she quoted us a reasonable price for the amount of work she had ahead of her. She cleaned our 1st floor beautifully, left it feeling clean and spotless. I definitely recommend Sonia and will use her again in the future! She even wiped down the front door and swept the porch before departing. Really nice, respectful, hard worker and punctual. Thank you Sonia, you were a life saver!

I live out of state, and I tried out Stain Patrol and they are amazing. The rental was left in bad shape and Stain Patrol made this place shine. I will use them always now on my rental. thank you so much Miss L 06/06/19, Sorry that I have to update this review. Since I lived out of state I had to take the word of photos. My house got a new tenant about about May 20. The new tenant contacted my property Mgmt and said that the carpets were really smelling. They sent some photos that show stains that the photos showed was gone but after drying well, the smell of pet urine was coming out. I called Stain Patrol several times to get an appt. with the tenants and check it out. She never did, I texted a couple of times and nothing. So I either had to pay to re do the carpets or replace them. I asked if deo and stain removal was used and all I got was yes. They could have gone out and checked but they did not. So, I learned my lesson. I will not ever use this Co again. I thought I found someone I could depend on to do all my cleaning needs along with the Realtor I used cleaning needs. Stain patrol was to a move in ready cleaning. Not just carpets. I am getting pictures of things that are not clean. So this was a very bad job that I just couldn't see in Photos or some photos not sent. My invoice was just a text with pricing but no letterhead or anything. I am having a problem with the book keeper saying that is not an acceptable invoice. Next time I will go with Coit and other big name so I know I am covered. They got their $700.00 right away but then did not stand behind their work.
