Your burning questions: answered

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.

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.

Maria and her team were incredible. We had them do a move out clean on our 3000 sq ft house that had been lived in for over 20 years without a deep clean! She brought 8 people and were at the house for 8 hours, the house now sparkles! They cleaned nooks and crannies that I didn't know were possible, they even washed ALL the walls! We were so impressed that we hired her to come every other week moving forward. I highly recommended Maria and her team they were friendly, professional, thorough, and extremely hard working!

I asked for the crew to clean one bedroom, the bathroom and the kitchen. A week after the work was done I went into the house to make a few repairs and run a Swiffer over the floors. I went through four pads before it seemed reasonably clean. The bedroom wasn’t much better. At present, I’m not sure what they spent 90 minutes cleaning.

Pros: - they weren't late - didn't break my puzzle (like previous ones) Cons: - the floor was not cleaned ok (in the bedroom), they didn't clean between the nightstand and bed. - only one person came (took more then one hour to clean an 1 bedroom) - in the kitchen, they didn't clean between all the electronics Switching to poor (2 stars) based on their response to my review: 1. "And it was not said the room number was difficult to locate." it is a big building with a lot of apartments, you can call if you cannot find it. And our apartment is just next to the elevator :) " Second are not included in cleaning clean electronics. " no, but you should clean BETWEEN electronics. As, you should clean the space next to a juicer. "It's movin 'out." No it wasn't. Never said it will be a move out cleaning. "And the person who received said that she could stay only 2 hours inside the house." no, no one said how long they can stay. "Our house cleaning still helped get items out of the change and this was not part of the cleaning." if you want to clean up the dust, you need to do it behind a picture frame too - so you need to move it, clean, and put it back.

Did a HUGE job for us, deep cleaning a very large house. It took all day and they were meticulous from start to finish! Wonderful communication and attention to detail. Highly recommended

This was a mediocre attempt at cleaning. We requested a deep cleaning and when I came home I had to wipe our counters down, redo our dishes and wipe down the office desk. Two stars because they arrived on time. Absolutely no attention to detail by this crew. It seems like they saw our house was pretty clean already and did the bare minimum. For a 3 person cleaning crew I expected better. Will not hire again.
Heather B.
Certainly the best cleaning my house has ever had. Spotless stainless refrigerator, and all evidence of my shedding Jack Russell was removed. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
