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.

Betty cleaned two very dirty bathrooms in my house to perfection despite being yelled at the whole time by my chihuahua. She was professional and left my rooms smelling and looking clean. She was on time even though there was work being performed on the outside of my house and they had removed the house number. Great job! Will definitely contact them regarding a deep cleaning.

Andressa and her partner were on time and were able to clean the house from top to bottom very nicely. I will continue to work with her on a bi-weekly basis. There really is nothing better than having the peace of mind of a nicely clean house. Thank you for giving me the gift of time! See you soon.

Evelyn and Junior were very punctual, communicative and did an excellent job of move out cleaning. My landlord indicated that he was quite surprised at how clean the unit was -- he even used a flashlight to inspect areas. I am considering them for continued house cleaning for my new home. I highly recommend them for any cleaning you might require. They are the best!

They Reschedule the appointment to afternoon due to car problem. The two cleaning ladies are really working fast, but! The work is really rough. We were asking them to clean inside the cabinets and refrigerator, but it turns out that they didn’t do it. Tons of spots are left over, and blinds are not clean either. Especially it’s an empty house. I’d say it’s less clean than I did. So I have to redo lots of areas. Not really worth the money. Or it shouldn’t be called “deep clean

Candi did a fantastic job, and with a great attitude! The house was dirty and the job took hours longer than expected. She was cheery and had a smile on her face. She had great attention to detail in her work. My house is very clean and ready for showing. I would definitely hire her again!

These two ladies were amazing! They meticulously cleaned an empty house for three hours. They took their time to dust, scrubbed, mopped all the surfaces. We would recommend their services and would hire them again.

Poliana and her helper did an excellent job cleaning our house. They were kind, , efficient, and thorough— they even made sure our two kittens were comfortable when they got scared with the vacuum going. Our stovetop and floors look new again! Sonja was incredibly responsive and fit us in for a last minute clean. Really appreciate everything!

I guess it doesn’t really brother me that they charged $240 to do a so called ‘deep cleaning’ for 2 hours and my house was superficially cleaned. Hey I get it, we all have different standards and I can live with that. What really sets me off is the way they treat their customers. When my wife kindly asked them to clean up different thirty spots, and they said ‘why don’t you clean it yourself? If you hate your job so much, why brother to show up anyway?

Wilber and Dinoara were great. Responded to my my request immediately with a few immediate availability options (they work hard!), communicated with me to let me know the exact ETA when the time was approaching, and did a great job on cleaning my house. They brought their own materials and tools and worked quietly together so they finished it in half the time. They're pros - they didn't need me to tell them anything! Left my house sparkly clean and left everything organized as it was before they came - there wasn't one thing I need to do after they left. I since then hired them again, and was just as happy with their work. Its great that they are flexible and can come when I need them, and that they have a fixed prices. They all wore masks all the time and I was not concerned letting them work indoors in my house.

We reached out to Lias on Thursday for a move-out clean, and she responded right away and was able to schedule us in on Saturday! She arrived on time, and was very easy to communicate with. Our house looks great and her pricing was very fair, would definitely recommend!

Honestly this is the best experience I’ve ever had in terms of having someone to clean my home. I recently became pregnant and I’m facing a divorce therefore my house has become a dumpster. Not only was she on time but she was early and so kind and genuine and gentle and sweet and thorough she is absolutely the only person I will ever called to clean my home again and I think her so deeply you are amazing girl!

I loved Val, the woman who cleaned my house. She was sweet and hard-working and she did a great job - especially given how dirty the place was. I would have given an "excellent" review, but there was a wall behind the trash bin in the kitchen that hadn't been done, and a decorative item in my bedroom that still had dust on it. I know - picky, picky! :-) But I will definitely hire her again, and I know she will get to know me and my place and do a wonderful job for me.
