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.

Bright House came on time and was very responsive in the process. They cleaned my bathroom and it was done extremely well. I will use Bright House in the future.

The cleaning couple arrived on time and finished cleaning earlier than expected. I had a deep cleaning service for my 2bed 2bath. The house smells nice now.

Delica is very professional and always is respectful of our time by texting to inform us if she is not able to arrive at the agreed upon scheduled time. Delica and her team does a very good job cleaning our house to our satisfaction and is careful with delicate objects around the house. I highly recommend Jancel House Cleaning!

My first impression of the ladies who cleaned my house was amazing! I know how dirty my house was and how long it had been since a good cleaning. I am very pleased with them and have decided to have them come back on a regular basis. Thank you, Gigi!

Sergio at Cleaning and Windows came to our home and we got one of the very best house cleanings ever. We have wood floors throughout our home and they were spectacular. Everything looked and smelled fresh. We are going to set up a regular cleaning with them. They are also very nice people as well. Fantastic job !

Has pride in her work and encourage me to check her work in detail to make sure it meets my satisfaction. If there was anything found that could have been done better or missed, to please let her know. For me it’s refreashing to find a house cleaner that, as I first stated has pride in their work. :-)

We are putting up our home for sale, and needed a full-home clean. Our professional real estate photos were the next day, and we have an open house a few days later and I needed the house to look perfect. I was lucky enough to find Karla on Thumbtack - and I have nothing but amazing things to say about her. She was friendly, energetic, and did a fantastic job of cleaning our home. I have mopped my floors dozens of times, but they have never looked as good as they did after Karla was done. She got water spots off our glass shower doors that I haven't been able to ever get completely off. Her work on the entire home was incredible, as she took so much care to ensure everything looked amazing. I highly recommend Karla to anyone looking for a fantastic home care contact. I will absolutely be hiring her again in our next home!

I was not impressed. A team of 3 showed up and were at my home for less than 1 hour and 45 minutes. Every other service I've used has spent at least 4 hours in my home. The shelves above my desk were not dusted, the beds weren't made or were sloppy, they washed the few dishes in the sink and left them on the side to dry, rather than either put them away or put them in the dishwasher. The floors are sticky, I'm not sure what product was used, but I don't like the finish. Just noticed the bookshelf wasn't dusted either. Yes, my house was dirty when they arrived and now most of it "appears" clean, but it's not really. They did a good job on the shower and tub and bathrooms in general. I am not interested in using them again.
