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.

Sergio and his team do an excellent job cleaning my house. I was very fortunate on the 1st day of meeting him, he had a cancellation right before coming to my speak with me, so he was able to start that day. I needed a deep cleaning, and his staff did an excellent job!

I reached out to Maria for a move out cleaning on 10/26/2020. She was very prompt in her reply and I was very happy that we made arrangements for a cleaning on 10/28/20. After I scheduled her I scheduled a carpet cleaner for the next day as it would be best for carpet cleaning to happen after the house was cleaned. My appointment was at 3pm I made sure to be @ the house by 2:45 so no one would have to wait for me. I sat and waited no one showed up. At 3:30 I called Maria she didn't answer I left a voicemail and text her. At 4:00 as I was about to leave she calls me. I inform her that no one has shown up for my 3:00 appointment. She replies she is very sorry and that she herself will come and be there by 4:30. Finally at 5:00 after Maria herself promises to be there by 4:30 with no call about being late or any such courtesy. I text her and tell her not to bother to come (something she couldn't even bother to do). 5 minutes later, I'm on the road she texted me back stating she is sorry and she can give a discount for the inconvenience. Long story long I waited for 2 hours for no one to show up, no call, no text nothing until I reached out. Even then the owner lied about when she would show up. On top of all that I was completely screwed over I had to scramble and pay a premium to get another service to come out and clean my house which wasn't able to happen until after I had my carpets cleaned so that was all mess up. Would not recommend in the slightest.

Cecelia (owner) and Steve (partner) are a great brother and sister team of professionals. They are a full service company who specializes in making properties move-out ready. Steve came out to my home to inspect it and go over what needed to be done ... which was a very deep cleaning before putting the house on the market. Mind you it had been forever since a deep cleaning had been done ... meaning moving furniture to vacuum behind, windows (inside & out), and yes carpet cleaning. They arrived on time! Cecelia and Steve arrived before the crew did to go over the details of the job one more time. They were at my home with their crew all day long....and trust me when I say it was so wonderful to come home and just sit and enjoy how clean and beautiful everything looked. Cecelia and one crew member were still here when I arrived home and Cecelia asked me to walk through to see how everything looked. I pointed out a couple of things that didn't get done and she or the crew person went back over the area. I liked that. Later that night Steve called to check in as well. The next day I noticed some other items that were missed on the to-do list and I phoned Steve and talked to him about it. The things I mentioned they will come back and do after I pack up my house for my move. One thing they didn't miss is the windows ... oh my goodness. One never realizes how dirty windows are until they are cleaned inside and out. I was sitting in my living room and thought "oh I must have forgotten to close the slider; but wait ... that isn't even the slider side of the door!" Yup that is how dirty they were and NOW HOW CLEAN they are! I really appreciate their care and professionalism through this process. It has taught me that in the future, I owe it to me and my home to use a professional service at least once a quarter. Great lesson to learn. Thanks Cecelia, Steve and crew!
