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.

How long does it take to clean a house professionally?

Generally, getting your house cleaned professionally can take several hours. The time it takes for house cleaners to complete their job depends on the size of your home, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms you have, the type of service you require and the condition of your house. It also might depend on how many employees are cleaning and the supplies they are using. If you get recurring cleaning services, the first visit might take a bit longer than the subsequent visits. 

When choosing the best house cleaner for you, ask for an estimate about how long their services will take.

How much is a house cleaning?

The national average cost for house cleaning ranges between $25 and $50 per hour, per cleaner. However, the cost of house cleaning services near you might be different.

House cleaning prices vary based on how many square feet your home is, how dirty your house gets and how often the cleaning service comes. And, prices can be lower in areas with a lower cost of living, higher in big cities or affluent regions.

Some companies charge a set amount — such as 5 cents — per square foot, with a minimum amount, such as $100. You may save money by increasing the frequency of your house cleaning visits. Often a company will charge you less per cleaning when you schedule more cleanings per month. The cost advantage rewards your loyalty, and also reflects the fact that more frequent cleanings make it easier to maintain a high level of cleanliness in your home. A housecleaning service may charge more for the first visit or for one-time services than for recurring cleanings.

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.

Cleaner cancelled with no explanation less than 48 hours before the scheduled date. This was an important cleaning as we had planned a photo shoot of our house we are selling. Now we are scrambling to book someone else.

They did a wonderful job cleaning our home. I appreciated their responsiveness and I was so happy to have gotten an appointment sooner than they said their availability was.

Marco and Dafne were perfect in every way. Best cleaning job I've ever seen. They did my move-out cleaning, and the house looks better than it did when I moved in. And they're both such truly nice people too! Highly recommended.

I hired PRO-MODEL CLEANING SERVICES to clean the bathroom and kitchen of my elderly mother's house after the regular cleaning service said it was way beyond their scope. I was not surprised they felt this way as it was just horrendous! But Alma at PMCS was very understanding of what the situation was and assured me she and her team would make it clean and sparkling again! I cannot tell you how confident I was in my selection of PMCS. And I am THRILLED that they not only rose to the challenge, but cleaned it beyond what I thought would be possible! My sister saw the Before and After pictures Alma provided and said she wants to hire them to clean her house too! What better testimony could there be? PMCS was a pleasure to work with and I would hire them again any time I need the highest level of cleaning performed! They are FANTASTIC!

They did a very good job! Went home to a good smelling house. Carpets are clean. My bathrooms are very white and clean. They even rearranged my messy things in the study area, rooms and around the house. And not to mention my kitchen sink that I thought has no chance of getting back to its shape. Giving this a 4 because I noticed a few setbacks. Like my floor, i think they’re no swept and mopped enough. But overall, they’re really good.

Cesar and his wife (sorry I didn’t get her name) did an excellent job cleaning our house. We don’t get cleaners often, as we try to keep our home clean but the pandemic and always being at home made our place pretty yucky. We weren’t at home for most of the time but they both wore masks and were very respectful of social distancing. I will hire them again for sure!

A lot of money for very little service. There was a crusty film left on the bathroom counter and on the mirror from their cleaning products. Chrome faucet and handles were not polished -- they were filmy also. Also on the stove. Towels were left in the dryer and the bed sheets were not washed or changed. I think the young man who came didn't have much experience in house cleaning and there was no one to follow-up with him. Looks like I was supposed to train him ... ?????
