Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 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. 

When viewing house cleaners on Thumbtack, you might see a Top Pro badge. This indicates that the service is one of the most popular and highly-rated professionals using the platform.

How do I prepare for a house cleaner?

There are several things you can do in preparation for a house cleaning to improve the efficiency and quality of the job. If you’re unfamiliar with a cleaning service, hiding and locking away any obvious valuables lying around can offer great peace of mind.

Depending on the preference of the cleaner, you may need to lock up your pets before the cleaners arrive. Washing dishes and decluttering the house allows a house cleaner to do their job more effectively. And leaving special notes for the cleaners about certain areas in your home that need attention is also helpful.

Ask house cleaners near you about their tips to help you prepare for their services. 

How much should you tip maids or cleaning services?

Tipping between 15 and 20 percent is considered an appropriate tip for maids and house cleaners — just as it would with a barber, food delivery driver or taxi operator. During the holidays, you might want to consider tipping a bit more. 

It’s important to note that some housekeeping and maid services might include a tip within the service fee, which should be explained to you in the service contract. Talk to house cleaners in your area to find out what's included in their fees.

Paola did a move-out cleaning for my old house and she did a phenomenal job in terms of detailing. Our house was cleaned on a regular basis with a cleaning service but it did get fairly dirty at the time of move-out and Paolo made it sparking clean. Thank you. Look forward to maybe have her do monthly cleaning at our new place now.

Dynamic, honest, and friendly with a great work ethic. My fathers house needed a deep clean. The appliances and flooring are 1997 vintage. These outstanding women brought back the kitchen to a deep clean state. They also worked through the house cleaning bedrooms and bathrooms. I am happy and plan to use this team as my regular maintenance cleaners. I highly recommend this service

I have to say I never thought my house could be this clean even after the deep cleaning. But BRAD cleaning service really made it happen and went far beyond my expectation. The team showed up at the scheduled time, estimated workload and then started the work without any further questions. It did take longer - almost 5 hours because my house was dirty & messy…They even called two more people helping out but with $30 incremental charge ONLY!! When I have to leave the house to office, they finished the work and locked the door for me, with all things put together in a very organized way in the living room. Very professional, honest, and very reasonable price. I have used 5 different deep cleaning services before and they are the best. Next I will sign up their monthly recurring cleaning service - I cannot see the past mess any more after I have such a clean house now.

Tilia responded quickly and clearly. She came to scope out the deep housecleaning and housekeeping work I needed done on the 3rd and 4th of July to make house clean. This was my first professional cleaning since COVID-19 Shelter-in-Place order. The work she and her work-partner did over 2 two days was done with understanding and care. The house went from dusty and needing deep floor cleaning and tub cleaning etc. to sparkling clean and neat. And they stayed until just before my party on the 4th of July to clean the patio and set it up for my houseguest and 12 people attending a BBQ on the Patio. I highly recommend Tilia's cleaning service. She keeps her promises.

L&B did a fantastic job cleaning our small house. There were years of grease built up on our kitchen cabinets and they are crystal clear now. She also cleaned the inside of the cabinets. Cleaned all the film off the glass shower door. Base boards were cleaned thoroughly. L&B was flexible and agreed to clean an additional refrigerator as well, communicating about the additional fee before tackling the project. Would absolutely hire again, and really would love to know her cleaning secrets!!

We hired Rosa and her team for a move out cleaning and the service well exceeded all of our expectations. Rosa walked through the process in a very detailed manner, and provided additional cleaning options for different rooms, depending on the level of dirtiness. After the service, the house is just as it was when we moved in, perhaps even cleaner! I will definitely hire Rosa and her crew again for my next large cleaning.
