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.

We got our house cleaned in December and they did an amazing job. They were very professional and didn't waste any time. They cleaned each and every corner of the house thoroughly leaving the house as good as new :) We'll be hiring them again and would recommend them to everyone.

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.

Cesar and Tania provided exceptional house cleaning service. They tackled our kitchen, bathroom, and living areas and had them looking cleaner than when we first moved in. Both of them are tidy, professional, and detail-oriented. I highly recommend their service and will be continue to be one of their customers.

They come on time, communicate well though a variety of media including by text. Price is reasonable and cleaning is exceptional. They are very good about our two rambunctious cats, and didn't charge more for pets (as other service providers had suggested). I love coming home to my squeaky clean house.

Eloy was excellent to work with, and did a great job of cleaning my house with tons of nooks. Coming home after he had been there was always a highpoint of the week! I had him do my move out clean as well, and the place looked immaculate. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone.

Wellison and Fernanda were on time, and friendly and very willing and helpful. They took very good care of cleaning the house and working with care around the stereo and art pieces. I would trust them with my home again.

Victoria and her team did arrived on time and ready to make the whole house clean. They did a good job. The only shortcoming was not putting the rooms back the way they were when they arrived. It took me an hour to put the tables and chairs and furniture back into place. They are a good team.

All I can say is wow! I contacted Rosas Cleaning services last minute for a huge job, 5 story house that had not been cleaned in about 12-15 years and had been trashed. A bit of a hoarding situation... they brought a team of 8 maids and they cleaned for 7 hours and they all worked so hard and only took like 1 30 min break and 1 15 minute break.... I was so impressed and they did an amazing job! Total transformation! They truly surpassed my expectations! I made them let me take pictures so I can write a review for them! Don’t hesitate to contact them!
