Your burning questions: answered

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.

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.

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.

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. 

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.

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.

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!

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!

I was originally hesitant to use a house cleaning service because I didn't think anybody would clean my house the way I wanted. But when stressing over the cleaning gave me an unbearable migraine, I decided it was time to research my options and found Spring Cleaning. Since their very first visit, they've allayed all doubt - always leaving my home looking clean and feeling fresh, while accommodating any random requests - proving time and time again over many months that I made the right choice.

I could not be happier with the work Gloria and Patricia did for me. They were fun to have in my house and they cleaned things I didn't even expect. They cleaned my eye glasses! Show me another house keeper that would go that far above and beyond. I will be continuing to use their services bi weekly and highly recommend them to anyone that needs, or wants, help keeping up with their home. Thank you ladies!

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.
