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. 

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Ana's crew was great! She sent three gals who were super friendly & communicative and did an amazing job. They did a deep clean (mostly of our insane cat hair situation) and will continue monthly, all for very reasonable rates. We keep finding new amazing touches around the house! Our towels & toiled paper were folded in cool ways, everything was clearly lifted and cleaned before being placed back in its spot, and they really spared no effort. Would totally recommend.
