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.

She is the best house cleaner I have ever had clean!

Fabiola was amazing! She came in with her team and cleaned my house from top to bottom! My house was so fresh and clean and organized! I will definitely have them over once a month to maintain my home. I was nervous to try a house cleaner but it all worked out! Thank you!

The women of Meza House cleaning were amazing to work with and I will be working with them as a monthly cleaning service going forward! They managed cleaning my whole house from top to bottome, cupboards, walls, shelves, under everything, it was remarkable. My former landlady was so pleased she sent me flowers! I can definitely recommend them to you with your cleaning task.

Two people came to my house to assess what needed to be done. Explained I had a monthly house cleaner but they had been doing a poor job as of lately, and so I wanted to find new people. I explained to them upon the first cleaning. I would like my oven cleaned. We scheduled something for a couple weeks later and they came and cleaned. At first glance the house looked clean. Fawn further inspection I found my oven was not cleaned, my bathroom floors were not cleaned, they didn't move the cat box and vacuum behind it nor did they wipe the baseboards. They charged me 50 extra dollars for the first clean because they needed to do a deep clean yet that's not what they did. I will not be hiring them again.

Claudia came by with another person and did an excellent job with my 3 bedroom house. I was happy to have found her and will use her again. I recently had a baby and it has been very difficult to find the time to clean thoroughly anymore. I have a dog and a cat and a husband who works outside. Needless to say, the floors needed a thorough cleaning and she did an excellent job! Top notch. I have to agree with another reviewer that the house smelled great too. After house cleaners come through, I often notice small things that didn't get cleaned, but I felt Claudia and her team caught a lot of smaller details in the cleaning job. For example, even though it wasn't necessarily in scope with the level of service we discussed before she got started, I noticed they still wiped down the fronts of cabinets making the house look extra great. I moved here a couple of years ago and have been looking for someone new for cleaning and the prices are much higher here in Northern California. I talked to a few other companies prior to finding Claudia and they were asking an arm and a leg. I would never have been able to afford regular cleaning at that price. Claudia's prices are totally reasonable, especially for the job she does.

Estela did a beautiful job on my house. She made everything sparkle. We had her do a moving out cleaning and they did not miss a thing. She is punctual, hardworking and friendly. I will use her again for another cleaning or two before we move.

Some of the problem was our fault. Hot water heater went out so they were trying to clean with no hot water. Only reason they got 2 stars instead of 1. The floors looked dirtier are they mopped then before. They wiped down kitchen counters. They did not clean anything else. It was supposed to be a move out clean. They didn’t wipe baseboards, clean cobwebs, clean bathrooms, they didn’t clean the fridge or the oven. They were a husband and wife and they brought their 3-year old to the house while we were trying to move out. Super nice. Just not good at closing.

You read reviews and hope for the best, but you never really know for sure what you are going to get—especially when the price is good. Too good to be true? Nope. Junior’s was amazing right from the get go. Super responsive, friendly, and FLEXIBLE! My sister-in-law is pregnant and due in just a few weeks, so my husband and I gifted her and her husband an early Christmas gift—have her house scrubbed top to bottom (one less thing to do before baby comes). Only thing is, they live in Petaluma and we are in San Jose, so I couldn’t send my house cleaner to her. Thus began the difficult search to find someone affordable but good, reliable, and trustworthy. I especially felt the pressure as they have never had a house cleaner come clean before, and they are particular. Junior’s was the most responsive and best priced. They also accepted Venmo payment as we were not there to pay in person. My sister-in-law let me know that they were there on time and once they finished, she said that her house had never been that clean before! :) Would definitely use again and highly recommend! Thanks Junior’s!!

I have had several house cleaners, but Mércia will be my forever. She is fast, efficient, flexible, and very good at what she does. Pictures wouldn't do her work justice, so take my word for it. Thank you.

The experience with Taynara and her team was great. They moved their schedule around for us in order to accommodate a last minute request. They showed up on time and moved quietly and efficiently through our house as they cleaned. They were thorough, polite and professional and they did a fantastic job. We will be calling them for future appointments.

Lulú and her team did an incredible job cleaning our home. We had stains from our dog on the baseboards, walls and doors that they were able to remove, leaving our house absolutely spotless. Complete attention to detail, thoroughness and professionalism. Highly recommend Lulú and her team.

These guys were great- showed up on time and dug right in. Our house looks so great. I gave a few pointers on what we def needed doing this round and what they didn’t have to touch and they did a great job. Best part was that we have a big house and they were open to sectioning it off and only cleaning the high use areas rather then charging us for the entire square footage. Much more cost effective. Will be calling them back for regular repeat business for sure!

We just bought a new house and the old owners left it a mess. We wanted the whole house plus the carpets deep cleaned, and assumed we’d have to hire and coordinate 2 separate companies. I was excited when I found out Moreno Janitorial could do both services and they quoted me a very fair price just by seeing photos. Jose and Henry (father and son team) met me at my house for a final estimate and it came almost exact to the quote they gave me. We agreed to a date, which I changed then changed back again due to trying to coordinate with other vendors. Henry was the one I communicated with mainly and he was super cool and patient with all of my questions and rescheduling. They arrived on time and did everything they promised for our move in clean— inside cabinets, all windowsills and tracks, above ceiling fans, etc. They even cleaned places like the cobwebs in our garage, our furnace closet and the vent above our microwave. I unfortunately was unable to do a final walkthrough with them so Henry sent me photos and videos of the completed job, including the things I asked them specifically to clean. They were quick, flexible and affordable. I highly recommend them and will use them again in the future.
