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 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.

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?

Lola and Claudia came to my house this past Saturday to do a deep clean. My house is 2 story and 3800 sf. They were here for 6 hours and did a superb job. They are both extremely diligent in their cleaning and very personable as well. They will be returning in a month to do another cleaning. I expect the best from them. I recommend Lola for your house cleaning needs.

Rosy's house cleaning services were absolutely wonderful, they are such nice responsible people even our 4 year old son was asking when they were coming back and she let us look over their work before they left to see if there was any thing else we wanted done they cleaned our house perfectly and I would definitely recommend them to anyone who needs their house cleaned. I'm sorry that another woman gave them a bad review they are house cleaners not "laundry doer's".

They did did the job exactly as I needed. Our house was a disaster and they got it looking a lot better after a deep clean. I highly recommend Dori house cleaning. They were responsive, did a great job and had the best price. Happy customer.

Dinora came to clean my parents house. They are both disabled, so Dinora’s cleaning was a big help! My parents were very impressed with the time and detail Dinora put into her cleaning.

Having a stranger loose in your house? This could not have been a more positive experience. My house is very clean and I can not wait to have it happen again.

Dapper Duo is AMAZING! I have used quite a few house cleaners over the years and I'm so grateful to have found Shiann. She can clean! My house smelled amazing, looks immaculate and honestly has never been cleaned better. We will use them every month now for a regular cleaning. Her prices were more than reasonable for the quality of work she does. I instantly felt comfortable having her at the house from the moment she walked in! If you are looking for someone to take care of your home like you would take care of it yourself, look no further!

Arrived late. Only had one cleaner when I requested two cleaners- this caused a major inconvenience and delay with the cleaning time which also caused us to have to pay more money. The cleaner took five hours to clean and did not manage to thoroughly clean areas that were cleaned (some kitchen countertops were not cleaned at all) nor touch floors upstairs which was requested. We had to thoroughly clean our house after the cleaner left and after we spent $200. Total waste.
