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.

My house is sparkling clean. Deyvi and Michelle (who cleaned my house) were incredible. She showed up early and my house is beautifully clean. I’m afraid to get off the couch because I want it to stay like this forever!

I have reached out to Gloria for a move-in cleaning on my 3bedroom house after the previous tenants left it dirty. She was able to schedule my cleaning in a very short notice and they did a great job. Very happy with the service and recommend it.

I hired Gloria's crew for deep cleaning of my 2BR house. They cleaned all of the window blinds and interior windows, which were pretty dirty from the windows being open all the time. They did an excellent job! And they even went above and beyond and cleaned the inside of the fridge and freezer! The whole job only took about 2.5 hours with a crew of 4. I highly recommend them for deep cleaning.

Loved having Cynthia and her cousin come help me clean up my space. They were extremely thorough and didn’t need a lot of directions as they knew exactly what they needed to get done. My entire house was fresh and clean by the time they left and I hope to have them back for more sessions soon! Thanks Cynthia!

Gloria and her team were prompt and responsive, answered questions by phone and text, and worked hard to complete a whole house move out deep clean in one afternoon. They are respectful and hardworking, I would recommend their services. Keep up the great work :)

SF Cleaning Service, a family business, under Abel's supervision (the owner/operator) did a truly outstanding job cleaning my house after some remodeling work had been done -- The group (family) was extremely professional, always on target. His price was reasonable and fair. His job was outstanding -- My house looks and smells immaculate -- The job was absolutely "Spot-On" -- He went that extra mile to do a detailed job.. I highly recommend Abel/ SF Cleaning Service, and I'm picky when it comes to a recommendation.. So if you are looking for a great job at very fair price, a hard working,punctual team with an eye on detail and a pride in their work, I would recommend this team -- professional, knowledgeable, punctual, hard working, excellent work and a fair price - What more could one ask -- I was very pleased with the work quality and work ethics - A Happy Customer passing on a recommendation of GREAT for a spot-on team -- K
