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 have had my house cleaned three times now by Home Quality Detail and I am very pleased. The girls cleaning my house have done a great job and I am continuing with a regular cleaning schedule. Holly, the owner, has been very responsive and a pleasure to work with. Definitely recommend!

I am so grateful to Peralta’s Cleaning crew. My house looks and smells amazing. I asked them to come do a deep clean on our home that has just gotten too much for me to keep up on lately. Our house is sparkling. Tough stains and build up around the house are gone! I will definitely be contacting them again. Thank you!

Roxy has cleaned my house twice now, and has done a fabulous job. She is dependable, respectful and thorough. I feel lucky to have found her. She is scheduled to clean my house every 2 weeks, which is such a relief to me. I highly recommend Roxy!

It is so nice to come home to a clean house. I appreciate the attention to detail. They dusted the ceilings, baseboards, and removed the fingerprints from the door. They are definitely invited back.

Reyna and her crew did an amazing job, the house looks spotless, they even made our bed! They cleaned around our house with four cats running around, and when we came home the cats were so relaxed! Big points! Would absolutely recommend and use their service again!

Mireya arrived exactly when she said she would, she conducted herself in a professional, courteous, and friendly manner, and when she was done, my house never before looked as clean; it was immaculate. We would highly recommend Mireya for any cleaning service needed.

James' communication throughout the entire process was smooth and nothing short of amazing. I had a tight deadline to clean and prepare my home for an open house. He was able to make availability for me immediately within a few days. He provided all cleaning supplies and was early the morning of the cleaning. I felt comfortable leaving James at my vacant home while I returned to work. He provided updates and pictures as he went along. Last minute cleaning/open house prep needs were needed and he was able to complete those tasks as well. He took the entire day to make sure all the work was complete. I highly recommend his services for any job, big or small. My home was treated with great care and he did a phenomenal job.

The team at Twinning Star were awesome! They were easy to communicate with and gave me a fair price for the work we had for them. Our new place was a mess, the previous residents did not take care of anything for years. Twinning Star came in and cleaned everything top to bottom. They were very kind and professional and assured us that they could turn the cleanliness of the house around and they totally delivered. I highly recommend them and they will be our first call next time we need cleaners.

I chose Brenda because of the 5* reviews I read about her. Now, after her first work done @ my house, I could say she deserves the 5* and appreciation for the hard worker she is. Responsive, easygoing, nice personality, She knows what she is doing and strives for the best she can provide to please the customer. She and Martina both hard workers (a nice team) - Brenda met and in certain aspects she exceeded my expectations. - In need of house cleaning? Give Brenda a try and you will be happy you did.
