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.

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.

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!

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! 😊
