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. 

What should I ask a house cleaner or maid before hiring them?

There are many questions to ask a cleaning service before you hire them to make sure they’re the right fit. These questions might include:

  • How much do you charge?
  • How do you set your prices -- per hour or per square foot? Or, do you charge a flat rate?
  • What is your past work experience? Can I see a list of references?
  • Are you accustomed to working with different home or apartment types and sizes?
  • Can you work with children or pets in the house?
  • What types of cleaning products do you use?
  • Do you bring your own cleaning supplies and products?
  • How often can you clean my home?
  • Is there anything you recommend I do (or don't do) to my home before you arrive?

How often should you have your house cleaned?

The frequency you should have your house cleaned depends on several factors, and the best professional house cleaner can give you a rough estimate of costs so you can budget how often you need someone to clean your home. 

Daily house cleaning may be necessary if you have a home with a large number of bedrooms with young children and kids, although other homeowners may benefit from weekly house cleaning. A weekly cleaner can clean the bathroom, kitchen, do laundry, vacuum and mop. An occasional deep house cleaning is most beneficial for people who have recently renovated a home or are looking to do a spring clean. 

Reviews for Pleasanton house cleaners

I requested a house cleaning job on Dec 5. The new time services responded me quickly and tried to work out an available slot for me. On that day, two ladies came to my house for cleaning job (9:30am - 12pm). The house was empty without furnitures. The house was cleaned completely including carpet, wood floors, kitchen, and other rooms. Overall I am satisfied with the cleanness.

The team did a great job. Three ladies arrived on time and cleaned in 2 hours. I was very satisfied with the job but gave 4 stars for broken wedding picture frame which I wasn't informed of and ceiling fan in the kitchen that wasn't cleaned. Otherwise, the house looks great. Thanks for the clean house.

Liliana and her friend did a marvelous job in house cleaning. They not only cleaned the house, the garage and backyard but they went over and above to clean up even the weeds in the backyard that I didn't even ask for. The level of cleaning was incredible. The fridge and oven were particularly in bad shape and they made it appear like new. The landlord actually commended for such a nice work and actually refunded my entire deposit. Go for them. You will love it.

Anna helped us with our move-out cleaning and she did an amazing job. My landlord was happy to see her house neat and clean. Will definitely recommend Anna for her great service!

Lorhany did a wonderful job cleaning my home. I am pretty picky and not easily satisfied with the work of house cleaners in the past but Lorhany’s Work beat them all. She first came to my home to discuss my preferences and for me to answer any questions she had. She was prompt for this meeting. I was at work when she cleaned but she stayed in touch. Communication is great.

Excellent work, and very conscientious attention to detail. The job involved some deep cleaning of an older house, and they did an outstanding job. Very pleasant and helpful. Very thorough. Prices were very reasonable. Highly recommend!

Mindy was quick to respond. Quoted a fair price after asking the relevant questions. I told her the sqft and number of rooms etc. After agreeing to hire at a quoted price, I received texts later in the day adding extra money for various reasons such as : extra dust due to floor work— understandable so I agreed. Later saying there are 2 stories so dramatically increased the price by 70$. After negotiations we agreed at a reasonable price. As it’s a move in cleaning, I was not onsite. Upon move-in I see subpar work. I was told that move-in cleaning includes all cabinets inside and outside cleaning, bathrooms, windows, garage, deck, etc. But garage is still dusty with cobwebs, which I was told that she removed), family room super dusty with footprints from previous day, wet bar area dirty with debris. Upstairs cabinets are dusty inside. In short: windows and mirrors are clean and that’s it. Rest of the house was already deep cleaned prior to sale of the house therefore looks like she just wiped it down. Very disappointed

Eloy showed up on time but the work itself was not up to par. There were lots of surfaces with clearly visible dust on. When I showed some of them he immediately took care but I couldn’t check the entire house before he left and found many other easily accessible areas that were not touched at all. The vacuum they brought didn’t seem to work and hardly cleaned the floors.

Akilah is truly a dream to have over your house, and has a magical ability to clean even the most challenging projects with ease and etiquette. The value of what she offers is incredible, especially considering that it is a flat rate and she brings all of the necessary supplies. I am so much more at peace with where I live, and I can't wait to call her again! She exceeded my already high expectations from her impressive before-and-after photos.
