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.

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.

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.

Reviews for San Bernardino house cleaners

They did so amazing. Our house needed extra cleaning. They stayed the extra time needed and were super professional! We hired them permanently for our house cleaning needs. I highly recommend them.

This is a whole house cleaning service. We just wanted our 2 bathrooms done, but had to add a bedroom as the app didn't allow for no bedroom. When we found out a 1 bedroom, 2 bath house cleaning was for $140. Well, that's a good deal. And they did a great job!

Being a mother of 4 under the age of 8 can be stressful and extremely busy. I needed a cleaning and found JGH cleaning and couldn't have made a better decision. My house looks so clean and smells so fresh like a home should be I'm definitely going to stay with JGH Cleaning for the future...

Wendi’s Cleaning service was very professional and prompt. We had a walk through separately from the cleaning, as per her policy, a few days prior to the cleaning. I understand the reason for the pre cleaning walk through. The walk through helped her get familiar with my house. The cleaning was really good. I appreciate the time Wendi took to clean and sanitize my home. Thank You

WOW!! Where can I start? The Clean Queen came to my house she took her time and walked through with me she really listened to what I wanted and she delivered. This lady is so detailed and professional and patient. Her work is flawless she did not cut any corners. Even as I sit and write this I am basking in the comfort of a greasy clean house too to bottom. I am so happy that I found her as she will be my house cleaning lady until she retires, because now that I have found her I don’t plan to let her go. I have a 2 story 4 bedroom 3 bathroom home and it is sparkling clean. Thank you Clean Queen you made me feel like a Queen yesterday. Now that I have found the best forget about the rest!!!!!

I've been wanting to hire a house cleaner for years since we moved in. They did a very thorough job, they will stay until the job is complete and not cut corners. Very much worth the money. If you need to reschedule she will work with you. :-) I will definitely rehire them again.

How to improve? Do what was promised, pretty simple, deep clean! I don't know where to start. I only am taking the time to share my experience because I relied heavily on the previous reviews left by others to make my decision and feel obligated to provide truthful feedback. I didn't have a problem with Linda as a person, her response time, her price, $175, ($58+/hr) which was the highest quote, or attitude. I liked her. I tipped her on top of the already high price compared to the others, I gave her $200 - ($66+/hr). All that was fine. It was after she left and I looked around that I was just heartbroken and appalled that she would leave my home in the state that she did with her stamp of approval, and after just under three hours. I had indicated that my little 1,025 sq ft home needed a deep-cleaning and paid extra for that, since it was the first time. I was also cleaning and de-cluttering the whole time in different rooms than she and her daughter were in, they were busy the whole time, and I didn't go behind them with a white glove, but if I had, only one surface I would have tested would have left the glove dirty. Spider webs were still on the bathroom ceiling and walls, the floor space between the tub and the sink was utterly ignored, baseboards everywhere weren't even touched, floors, doors and walls were still untouched and dirty, feathers still on the floor in the bedroom, dust still untouched on most surfaces, including the top of refrigerator, shelves, counters, and dressers. It was a quick clean job, move the vacuum around, quick-wipe this and that, but for a deep clean, I expected to have objects moved, wiped down, and more than dust mopped. I expected to have a removal of dirt after the dust mopping with something wet. My kitchen floor was still dirty, though parts swept. My kitchen countertops were ignored behind and under things, just the front wiped down. I started taking pictures, but just thought people know what a dirty floor/wall/counter looks like. A disappointment beyond belief. Sure, it was better after they left than when they began, but it was like just the first phase of cleaning got started, it wasn't finished. Nothing was left deeply cleansed. When I was in the kitchen after I realized she was calling it quits, I pointed out some big chunks of something on the counter towards the back, she said, referring to herself, "Oh, Linda", laughing. It wasn't funny, it was unbelievable. My husband said she just needed some quick money, didn't really want to help someone clean their house. To future house cleaners, may I just say, please think about your client, they are paying you to do what they can't. How would you clean your own home? How would you hope/expect someone you PAY to clean your home?
