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.

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 are the different types of house cleaning services I can get?

There are several services offered by professional house cleaning companies, each suited for a different purpose. These services include:

  • Standard cleaning, which is a basic cleaning typically done on a weekly or monthly basis;
  • Deep cleaning, which is a detailed cleaning with more intensive work than a standard clean;
  • Move-in and move-out cleaning, which is a detailed service preparing a home for residents moving in or out;
  • Green house cleaning, which is a service that uses eco-friendly cleaning supplies and products. 

Aside from the type of cleaning services available, homeowners may also choose daily, weekly, monthly or one-time 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.

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.

I was getting prepared to move into a new house and wanted it to be cleaned before I moved in. I sent several messages and each time I got a response very quickly. On the day of my move 2 cleaners arrived and did a thorough job cleaning my house top to bottom. We were very happy with the job that was done and it was so nice to have a nice clean house to move into. I look forward to continuing to work with them.

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.

Anna did a fantastic job!! Having a full time job and an infant got in the way of me being able to clean my own house… Anna did a deep clean to get everything back on track, and it feels SO good to have a clean home again that I know is clean enough for my daughter! Will definitely be re-hiring for maintenance cleans as well. 10/10!

Where do I begin!!!!! They showed up late I wanted my house deep cleaned due to my house having repairs done from a roof leak, however I clean my house everyday so my house was not dirty. My main things I wanted done since I’m 8 months pregnant and can’t do everything rt now was dusting of the blinds, tub shower cleaned, base board clean and refrigerator cleaned inside. Well total disappointment. And to top it off they were trying to charge me more for things you can see was clearly not done. I’m assuming they thought I wasn’t going to do a walk through. I would never hire them again. Unfortunately I spent $375 for something that looks exactly the same how it was.. and this is just my upstairs. There’s to many photos to post.. oh and they broke my side container for my refrigerator that part alone cost $45 bucks to replace. Please beware of people who say they are professional cleaners and licensed because that’s a lie. I’m so disappointed 😡 I want a refund
