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.

I hired Cecilia to come clean my house and her and her son did a great job. I have hired her again to be here to clean my house once a month now. I definitely would recommend her to anyone who is looking for house keeping. I even paid her over the amount she quoted for the cleaning.

Brea is absolutely amazing. I needed a move-out cleaning done on short notice and she reached out to me to get it done. She spent 8 hours making our house look fantastic! She cleaned everything so thoroughly that our friend talked to her, mid clean, to use her serves at his house! I Highly recommend her services!

We had renters in our house for four years and they did not clean once I don't think . Lucy and her crew have worked there butts off today to clean ( in her words) The dirtiest house she's seen. I cannot recommend her enough . She is extremely proffesional very kind , and is fantastic at what she does. Hire her before she gets booked out completely . I cannot thank her enough , I was overwhelmed by the dirt in the house , the toilets hadn't been cleaned for at least a year and the walls bathrooms where disgusting. But not any more .

I entered all of my information about the house and exactly what needed to be done in Thumbtack, and I received a online quote from Rosy of $225. I live out of state and I'm trying to sell my home and needed cleaned the following day. I get a call from Rosy, she is at the house but she wants $600 to clean the house. I said you quoted $225, she said there was a lot more cleaning than expected. I was not happy, but needed it cleaned that day so we could put it on the market. My realtor said she did a really good job, and we negotiated the price down to $550. I'm not happy with the whole experience, and Rosy should "not" have quoted a price, but should have said she had to see the house first. I would not use Rosy again for that reason.

Maid with Aloha went above and beyond for my move-in clean. They were wonderful. I had asked for a last minute clean to get my house sanitized before we moved in. They fit us in late on a Sunday night. I will absolutely use them again. 10/10 would recommend.

Rosy and her team are a blessing in our household. She’s here every week, doing an exceptional job, making my life a better place to function in. I tried her for a one time clean and couldn’t let her go. Rosy is extremely trustworthy and is attentive to special detail around the house. She is kind and understanding when circumstances arise. I’ve also used her for commercial cleaning services for a business move out and they were equally terrific! I recommend Rosy for your cleaning service needs!

I contacted Rosy and her response was very fast. She came by to give me an estimate and the job was completed the next day. They went above and beyond my expectations, especially the bathroom shower and shower door, inside kitchen cabinets, stove, and oven. Her team even cleaned the blinds that I didn't expect. House smelled so fresh and clean!!! I would use them again in a heartbeat!!! Excellent work!!!!

Juliana was amazing!! She went above and beyond going as far as to clean the inside of our microwave, ensuring to take every item off shelves, dust and then replace them in their exact position, and literally brush dog hair out of our carpet! She was also very professional and extremely nice! Our house was sparkling by the time she left hours later ❤️❤️

Hiring Deb to keep my house up has made my life so much easier. She was friendly and always smiling. She did it all like cleaning dirty window sills & got old stains out my carpets. She's very handy & did what needed to be done without being asked. I saw she had eco friendly products too. I had to leave and she locked up my house when she was finished. Everything looked great and I had no issues with trusting her. I will have her back soon.

I had Amber and her team do a move in clean today. My house was spotless! They used eco friendly products which left my home fresh and not with chemical odor. They were very personable and cared about what my needs were. I only planned to use this service once but I plan to use them monthly. Would highly recommend this company!
