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.

Highly recommend! Scheduling was super easy as Keyla is quick to respond and shares the checklist for each type of cleaning beforehand. For the cleaning itself, they did an amazing job. Aline was thorough, professional and paid attention to all corners of the house. We booked our next cleaning with them already! Thank you!

Daniela’s team did a great job cleaning our post construction house. They were committed to doing the deep and comprehensive cleaning it required and completed the job to our satisfaction. They were hard working, careful and paid attention to detail. I would recommend Daniela and her team and plan to use their cleaning services in the future.

We moved to our house recently and had a construction. The construction team cleaned the majority of the dust after the construction but it was not as sparkling clean as I wished. I hired Wendy to clean the house (2.5 bed and bath) and they did a very good job. They came on time it took them (two people) around 2:30 hours to finish. However there is a small dirty spot in one of the bedrooms if I want to be super picky, but I'm pleased from their work in general and I'll hire them again for a monthly cleaning. Update: Wendy contacted me to follow-up on which part I was not super happy about so she can work on it more next time. I really appreciate her responsibility and I'm sure the next time she come to our house, there result will be extra good. Thank Wendy!

Wendy and her team were great! Our house was due for a deep cleaning and they took extra time to make sure it was sparkling clean! They were easy to work with and helpful working around our two overly friendly dogs. We will definitely plan on hiring them again!

Teresa arrived as promised and went to work immediately, she has a great personality and I would love to have her come back, she left my house nice and clean

Jasmin was easy to contact and responsive. She came very close to our time and cleaned thoroughly (4.5 for the cleaning- I did see a few places that could have been dusted), but it really helped freshen our house. Felt really comfortable having her in the home and it was easy to communicate with her about payment.

Teresa was incredibly thoughtful, making sure that my dog was comfortable with her and using products that are eco friendly to keep my dog and everyone healthy! She and her partner split up bathrooms vs kitchen so they could focus on details, which they definitely did. For a few hours of two hard working people cleaning, she offered a very low price--lower than what she had initially offered before the work was done. I was so impressed though-- the house was cleaner than when I had moved in-- I could not bear to give her the low price and stuck with her quoted price plus a tip. Can't wait to see her again!

Overall, I had a great experience with Help House Cleaning! I found this company on a AD from Instagram. I’ve booked a couple of other companies and it just wasn’t a good experience. Maria customer service skills is great! I received a text letting me know with the Technicians was en route to my home, a text when the job was complete, and a text to pay my invoice. Communication is key for me! Maria team was very kind, professional, and kid friendly! The Technicians didn’t waste anytime either. The Ladies walked right in and got to work. Now I’m a biweekly Client.
