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.

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.

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.

The house looks amazing! In the past I've used a series of other companies who sent perfectly adequate house cleaners, but Erika was exceptional and I'm so glad we've found her.

I highly recommend. They do a great job! My house is so clean and their boss comes in specs the place ask you if there’s anything else that needs to be done. They cleaned and organized my refrigerator, did my laundry, cleaned my windows, everything I needed I mean everything.

Gigi came in only once so far, but she did an outstanding job. My house was in a mess, and she "took ownership" by suggesting ways to re-organize things so as to make it easier to clean, and keep clean. And she did so in a very non-invasive way: basically she is there to make your life easier, and cleaner; I can't speak for the long run yet but she's definitely off to a promising start with my house! It felt so fresh & new after her first visit.

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. They were nice and everything was very well cleaned. I appreciated the attention to the corners and all the questions about cleaning specific areas or things were answered and addressed. thanks for making my home sparkle. it was wonderful to come home to a clean house.

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.

This housecleaning team was polite and did a very simple but inadequate job. We probably wouldn’t write a review if it weren’t for the fact that we were upcharged an extra $110 over our initial estimate ($120) to clean the house which they said would take extra time. This was a bit odd to us because it’s a very small house (under 1200 sq feet, 2 bed, 1 bath) and we had already pre-cleaned it ourselves. So all that needed to be done was mop/vacuum and clean surfaces. However, the job was done in less than three hours and after they left we found that areas such as the bathroom sink had been barely wiped down. We spent additional time re-cleaning the sinks in the house. Also, the project details we sent included cleaning the fridge and windows but those were not done as seen in the photos. Some upper portions of the windows were cleaned, but not the lower where the dogs put their noses against the glass. Again, had we not paid nearly double the estimate we wouldn’t be writing this review. But it was a hastily done job that left a lot untouched and we had to do additional cleaning after the fact.

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!

JC and his crew are AMAZING!!!!! I was frantically looking for a cleaner as my originally booked cleaner had mistakenly booked the wrong day and I was trying to figure this all out while out of town! I had guests coming into town ahead of me and I was messaging every cleaning service under the sun in Los Angeles. Understandably though, no one was available or even very responsive. JC was so responsive from the first message, so professional and came to the rescue within less than 24hrs and had my house sparkling before my guests got into town. I don’t recommend popping this on any business last minute and I made sure to tip a lot extra as any of us should if we are asking someone to perform miracles quickly!!!! I am so grateful though he and his team were available and that the house is so clean! JC you’re incredible, thank you for seamless communication and coming to the rescue. I won’t be using anyone else but him and his team from now !!!

I just moved into a townhouse a few days ago, and my new place was in desperate need of deep cleaning. This one was unfortunately a mixed bag for me. Please let me explain: The office manager was friendly, attentive, and eager to satisfy all my specific needs. And ladies who cleaned our house today were very professional and personable—both radiating positive attitudes throughout. They arrived on time and worked very hard the entire time. I admire their work ethic. That being said, I was quite disappointed with the job done. We did a brief walk-through after they finished. And from a quick scan, everything seemed clean and refreshed. I was especially happy with the clean floors and blinds. They were quite dusty before. They also fixed my toilet in the half bath. I didn’t ask them to unclog the toilet, but it was very kind of them to work on it and clean it very well. Everything was good until I took a closer look later this evening. The floor was clean in only certain areas of the living room. The area near the front door was still quite dusty and the area behind the table was not vacuumed/mopped. But I was most surprised to see how dirty my kitchen was. The fridge was not clean. The shelves were still quite dusty, and I can see pieces of food stuck in corner areas. It looked like the exterior was the only thing that was wiped down. There were many spots throughout the kitchen that were obviously not touched at all—the cabinet under the sink, the bottom drawers, the top cabinet above the fridge, the countertop to the right of stovetop. The microwave was still dirty. And when I tried to clean the inside, I could see that the dirty food stains weren’t even the stubborn ones. And as I was re-cleaning my kitchen that was supposedly deep cleaned, I became more frustrated. I thought I had expressed well that extra time and therefore extra charge is totally ok. I wish I had communicated better. And perhaps my expectation of deep cleaning does not align with the level of detail the company provides. I had high hopes after reading the reviews. Sadly, it did not work for me, and I won’t be requesting any more service.
