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.

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.

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.

Great work! Thank you for cleaning!. Glad I hired Latin House Cleaning to clean after my tenants moved out and left a mess. Latin House Cleaning was able to make our rental spot less. Thank you for your hard work. You will not be disappointed if you hire them for your cleaning needs.

They did a great job cleaning when they got there. Had a little issue getting to the house and was a bit late. But once they got there very nice and cleaned well. Make sure to go over the work as they may Miss some things. Once you point it out they clean it no problem.

Rosa cleaning is top notch. If you want your house to look sparkling clean and like you just moved into a model home, well they are your people!! Fast response, super professional, thorough. You might find cleaning services that charge less, but you get what you pay for. Well worth the $ to have it done *right.*

Understand we can’t give 5 stars only because WE are extremely meticulous house cleaners... WHEN we have the time to clean. So some thoughtful crevices were overlooked like the windowsills, but you wouldn’t notice it. Her floor cleaning is magical, and she was very receptive to me pointing anything out and perfecting it. Very clearly not slacking!

Seriously the worse cleaning experience of my life. I was specific about what I wanted room by room. I signed up for a deep clean including refrigerators. When they arrived I told them forget the fridge because it was too packed. I told them the shelves that had major electronics on them and wires to not touch or dust. I told them the other shelves I wanted dusted and every item on them wiped down. Never - ever - ever has been a problem for me before. They ignored me. I was there with my two babies under 2 years old, just a tad busy but I did my very best to be completely out of the way. They completely skipped dusting dressers, dresser tops, shelves and everything on them. I had to ask them in Spanish if they were actually done with those rooms and they said yes. I said no, I asked you to dust and wipe things down. Upon final inspection I saw that something I explicitly asked for - the cleaning of the inside of the bathroom mirror and everything in it was completely ignored. I then heard them talk shit in Spanish and literally throw everything in my glass sink, wipe it down and throw everything back in piles. PILES all over my house. Look inside the bathroom vanity, they threw in nail clippers and tweezers. Literally tossed them in there. They didn’t even TRY to replace items in their general vicinity. Baby changing tables were left dirty and I dusted after I explicitly asked for them to be. I’m so livid. I hire out help because I desperately need it. I’m so grateful that they insured I’ll spend the rest of my day doing their job and reorganizing my whole house. Thanks!
