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.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a house cleaner when social distancing?

If you hire a house cleaner to clean the inside of your home, do not make physical contact. Stay at least 6 feet apart at all times, sanitize any surfaces after cleaning and wash your hands thoroughly. Exchange all payments digitally instead of with cash. When contacting a house cleaner, put a plan in place to ensure everyone's safety.

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.

Should I hire a move-out cleaning service or do it myself?

You may benefit from hiring a professional move-out cleaning service, depending on your budget, time frame and whether you will be getting a deposit back. Hiring a cleaning service takes the stress out of your move. But if you’ve had your house regularly deep-cleaned, or if your landlord will charge you for cleaning anyway, you can save costs by DIY-ing it.

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. 

When viewing house cleaners on Thumbtack, you might see a Top Pro badge. This indicates that the service is one of the most popular and highly-rated professionals using the platform.

Not only was Francisco and his team very professional and excellent at cleaning my house but the attention to detail really blew me away. They cleaned areas in the house that we had previously hired other cleaners to clean and it looked so well done we didn't even imagine it could get any better. In addition there was a pungent smell coming from a heater room that Francisco took upon himself to clean and wrap the PVC pipes with aluminum foil to prevent mold and mildew. Our kitchen floor is 1 area that gets dirty quickly. Francisco cleaned it so well by deep steaming the floor for days after we didn't even want to walk on the floor to preserve how clean it looked and felt. I highly recommend this team for their attention to detail, flexibility to work with me and help me identify ways to improve the cleanliness of the house.

Booked Friday for a Saturday morning cleaning. Edina responded quickly, and at a very reasonable price. My house is much cleaner now! Brought her own vacuum, and worked efficiently. Will be booking again.

Lucy was great to work with. She was very responsive and flexible. She cleaned my house for a move out and I was very pleased with the result. It smelled clean and was thoroughly clean. She was easy to work with, accommodating my schedule and fulfilled the job according to plan.

Dulce and her partner are fantastic. I love arriving home to a beautifully clean house that smells amazing. It sparkles when they are done. I also love that their cleaning products are eco-friendly/non-toxic. I was a little nervous about having someone enter the house while we are at work because we have three rambunctious dogs, but Dulce is super sweet with them and lets them outside to play in the backyard while they clean, and then brings them safely back inside again when they leave. Dulce always confirms her arrival time the day before and she is punctual, responsive, and reliable. She goes above and beyond to make sure you are satisfied with their work. Highly recommended! So worth it! Wish I had hired her years ago. No more fighting with hubby over house-cleaning duties! It has greatly improved our quality of life! Thanks, Dulce and team!

Sala's Clean Agency did a GREAT job on our house today! They were affordable yet still super thorough in cleaning all the rooms. They got here right on time and to top it all off they were very friendly and professional. We had tried other cleaning services and none of them compare to the overall experience that Sala's provided us! We are very very pleased!

Daniela's Cleaning Service was very easy to work with, but most importantly, they cleaned the house perfectly! I had a few places that I knew was hard to reach and checked those places immediately, and was surprised to find it perfectly clean. Even the air smelled different, so just shows how much dust was in the air before. They also removed mold and mildew that was growing on the wall. I wish I can give 6 stars!

Kiki came and we did a complete walk though of the house. We were returning the house to the landlord because we were moving out so there was no furniture to deal with. She was supposed to dust off the baseboards, clean the bathrooms and everything in it, sweep and mop the floors, clean the kitchen and stove. She didn’t mop the kitchen because when I took paper towel and water to the floor it came up black. The stove still had grease and white streaks on it. The half the baseboards were dusty. The toilet still had poop stains in it. Only thing that was completely taken care of was the shower and bathtub. I don’t know what she did for 5 hours, but it doesn’t take that long to clean 2 bathrooms.

We are ecstatic with our first experience with NoSpot Cleaning Services! I've been working from home full time while assisting my child 100% with Distance Learning TK, while my husband goes to work each day. We clean as often as possible DAILY but cannot seem to keep our house looking nice with how maxed out we all have been. We looked around and after being quoted from a different cleaning service, well beyond our budget, we came across NoSpot Cleaning Services who were perfectly in our budget and got great reviews, so we decided to try them out. The cleaning crew came to our house perfectly at the time of our appointment, fully masked taking all appropriate Covid precautions, and got right to work. They were done in exactly one hour and were able to provide us the exact quoted service. We returned to find our home 10x cleaner than we've ever been able to do ourselves! Seriously, we noticed so many amazing details that continue to blow our minds. We are beyond impressed and happy with the quality of service we received and cannot be more grateful to the all-woman cleaning crew who cleaned our house til it sparkled! These ladies did such a great job and deserve to be commended for it. My husband and I immediately signed up for a reoccurring schedule! So grateful those who are out there helping families like mine keep it together during such a stressful and overwhelming time! Thank you NoSpot cleaning crew!! Stay safe!!

Work was just okay, but not repeatable. They were a half hour late, which isn't a big deal, but you can tell, it rushed the work. floors weren't clean, wipe marks/streaks on all the surfaces, other sloppy mistakes through the house. Can let the other stuff go, but I have to pay to get the floor has to be cleaned again, which I'm not happy about.

Yesenia was a pleasure to work with! She has been super responsive from start to finish. This was my first time booking a cleaning service and will definitely contact her again! The house we are moving into was SUPER dusty from the renovations. She made sure I did a walk through to check the house and told me to let her know if anything was wrong. I really appreciate that she didn't just take the payment and leave. This shows that she cares for her work and wants to ensure that you are happy with it. I forgot to mention certain things I would liked cleaned and they did it without my asking. Thank you for your hard work! 😊

Communication problems from the beginning. I told Daniela the square footage of my house and she sent me a quote for a smaller square footage and then asked me again information I had given her. She asked for an exorbitant price for "move-in or move-out" although I asked for a regular cleaning. I just can't get over what she is charging. It's literally over twice what I normally pay and I pay very well.
