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 Sacramento house cleaners

House cleaning...it was so nice to come home on a Friday to a clean house. Karen is great. She communicates well, is on time and does a great job.

I cannot comment on the cleaning as they never showed up on the time we agreed upon and I was left with a house that needed cleaning and guests arriving that day. It was a very frustrating experience. Natalya's communication skills and time management can be much improved. I spoke with her and we agreed she would come to clean my house on a Thursday. She emailed me back later to tell me she forgot she had another house to clean that day and so we changed it to Friday. I said I was okay to change it to Friday as long as she would be able to clean the house by 5pm because I had guests arriving same day. The day before she was supposed to clean my house, I left her an email to confirm the time and she called me and said yes, she would come by for an estimate and I said.. no, no.. you are coming to clean the house. I need the house cleaned. and she said okay. On the day she was supposed to clean the house she did not show up at the time specified. I had to call her and ask her where she was and she said she was cleaning another house and she could not clean my house that day. Very disappointing experience as I felt I was very clear about needing my house to be cleaned. I had to scramble to clean my house before my guests arrived as she did show up as she had agreed to.

Agree to do the job then get at the house and then they decide to make excuses as to why they can't do the cleaning. House bigger then they thought and then State that they are on a time crunch and have another job scheduled the same day in the bay area . It was explained to them that they would be cleaning a house that was 2200 ft.² and that they would be cleaning after the house was painted throughout inside . So they refused to do the job and put us in a difficult position .

I wanted my mother's house to be cleaned and hired Mary to do the job. Since I wasn't there (I live in another state), and my mom has dementia (with 24 hour care), I had to trust that she would do a good job. When I came to visit, the house was cleaner, much cleaner, than with my previous company, and my mom's caretakers had nothing but praise for her service. I would highly recommend Mary to anyone who wants a clean house.

Not exactly sure what was cleaned. House was empty for cleaning and after Lynne left I still found dust and dirt every where. Probably wouldn't hire again.

These two people did an amazing job. Even the blinds are clean! The landlord said that he had never had the house left so clean. He is returning our entire deposit.

I needed a deep clean because I am going to put my house up for sale. It was quite dirty after 26 years, with a lot of crud on the kitchen cupboards, and cobwebs all over the vaulted ceilings.. Zip clean gave a very reasonable estimate and did a great job getting the house into presentable condition, I am very impressed! I highly recommend zip clean!
