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.

Things were not cleaned properly. After 5 1/2 hours and paying for a deep clean I still have to clean my house. Very disappointed

Jessica and Marlene did an excellent job. This was a move out clean, so it was a big job. The house was amazingly clean when they were done. They worked miracles in the kitchen with the stove and fridge. Overt efficient and so thorough. I recommend them highly.

Agustina was amazing. She did such a thorough job on my house. Went the extra mile to be sure everything was taken care of. It was a huge job - the house had not been cleaned professionally in years. I was so fortunate as I reached out to her Thursday to see if she was available on Saturday. I highly recommend Agustina. Thank you!

I set up a move-out house cleaning for my daughter's rental house, remotely, as I do not live near her. All of my dealings with The Sisters Home Services were extremely professional. The proof, though was in the final walk-through. Their housecleaner showed up early, and did a job as my daughter would have done herself, and that is just marvelous. Additionally, the quoted price was fair. Thank you so much! I would recommend this company, any time.

I was told last minute that they couldn’t come to the appointment I scheduled far in advance. It was a move in clean and I took the entire day off of work, they were supposed to come in the morning. I spoke with Nina who was incredibly rude and argued with me so she could make it seem like it was my fault. Don’t work with this service, I wouldn’t want people like this in my house. Sketch.

If I could give her zero I would this person is wishy-washy I don’t know if she’s on some type of substance but she’s not stable she’s late from the very first meeting she sent someone else to clean my place and tried to say that she was there with her which wasn’t true because nothing we discussed was completed and I told her I did not want someone else in my house without me knowing before this ever even happened before her first initial cleaning . Empty the dishwasher just left a completely full amongst a list of other things that we went out with her after I told her I wanted my keys back she asked for another chance I guess I’m too particular for her but he had like a personal likes to do their job and she doesn’t seem to want to or maybe she dies or maybe she doesn’t because she asked for another chance and canceled on me today after all I did was try to get things ready for her to make sure she had enough detergent she wants to say I’m too particular. Everything from the start and told her yes I like my things a certain way she agreed my case in point is this don’t agree to do things and don’t ask for a second chance because you know you were wrong and then fake out this shows her personality do you want this type of person cleaning our place good luck.
