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 was excited at first about this ridiculously expensive $190.00 cleaning *which never in my life have I spent $190.00 for a basic cleaning. I thought, they must be super heroes or something; come in and change your house/life. We checked off all the items online to be cleaned, but it was all around lazy work. We didn’t even end up having our laundry done, or have all three bedrooms cleaned *we only have two the other is an empty room*, etc. They cleaned the sheets on one bed, didn’t clean under the beds *until I asked them*, dust was everywhere, fridge not cleaned at all, they don’t move things around to clean u set things, my boyfriend and I ended up picking up rags and sweeps to go over their work. If you’re looking for a quick tidy, call these people, but if you’re a conscious human who is slightly OCD, and highly aware of all of their surroundings, then this is not your crew. To be honest, I was lookin for a deep cleaning. I would have hired them again if I didn’t feel ripped off by this last visit.

I am. Real Estate professional and was looking for a company to deep clean my clients new home after closing. I found Tessas here on thumbtack and reached out. Due to the uncertainty of when the house would actually close escrow, we had to move the cleaning date around a couple of times. Tessas was very responsive and worked with us on getting a date set. I am happy to report, after they were done cleaning my clients were extremely happy with the job done. I will definitely e using them again! Thank you!

Hello, I found them on Thumbtack and though it’s always hard to pick that way someone who will clean your home I don’t know. The man who takes the calls and or texts (which is great) is so very sweet and patient and also moves mountains to help me out. I think he’s this way to everybody. I told him about my house and that it’s clean but now I want it to sparkle. Eat off the floors stuff but I did pre- clean so imagine when the pros were done! This is a great service and this is a genuine write up. I hope they remain consistent!

Yolanda and her nephew were here for the first time today. All I can say is wow, they were on time and the cleaning job that they did on the house was amazing. We have had many cleaning services in the past and this was by far the best. I can’t wait for them to come back in two weeks. We just relocated to Palm Springs from dc and we didn’t know where to find a cleaning service, we looked on here and took a chance based on the reviews. Well let me tell you Yolanda and David are the best. Please share and please give them your business. Oh and they are so nice, lovely people. I have already recommended them to friends.

Do NOT use this company. The owner scheduled an appointment with me to clean my house for a photo shoot. I asked him THREE times if he was going to be there and even confirmed the day before. He said he was personally going to show up because I needed to go over everything that needed done. His staff shows up a half hour late and says he isn’t coming. When I called the owner he tells me over the phone that he can’t come because he’s too busy. I said why did you schedule the appointment for this time and give me your word you were coming? “I’m sorry, I’m busy”. He then hangs up and tells his staff to leave. Now my house isn’t ready for the photo shoot. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!
