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.

I was not home while Evellyn and Junior thoroughly clean my house, but my wife was present. The job that the couple did was stellar and exceeded our expectations! More important is that my wife was extremely pleased that E&J cleaned our house with little planning. Thank you!!

This bag is what we cleaned after she cleaned. The others are just a few spots that were missed. The house was new and just dusty from remodeling. So nothing was blocked or had to be moved.

Housecleaning of Marin was THE BEST choose cleaner I have ever had and I have had many. Maria, the owner, was extremely communicative, friendly, and professional. I needed my house cleaned before I moved in and she was able to clean it with short notice. She and her team got my house extremely clean. It was cleaner than I could have ever imagined. The previous tenants left the house a total mess and she really cleaned it in an unbelievably short amount of time. I then asked Maria to help with some other move in supports and she was more than willing. She is the best! I will continue to work with Maria and would gladly recommend her to anyone. If I could give her more stars I would because 5 stars just isn't enough. Thank you so much!!!!

Nanci was very responsive and professional to speak to and in setting up my appointment. She tried to accommodate my need to clean and prepare my house for prospective buyers within my budget. The main things I wanted done were baseboards, dusting, outside windows on the first floor, certain fan covers, an adhesive on my front door, and things I told Nanci to pay attention to in her experience. The quality of work was generally good; she and her worker, Zulay, mopped the floors, cleaned most of the baseboards, scrubbed the inside of my oven, vacuumed, cleaned shutters, inside of windows, and most of what I asked be paid attention to. What didn’t get done for lack of time were outside windows and the adhesive, a few baseboards. They also left a garbage bag right outside my front door which I thankfully discovered before any house showings. Not a huge deal. Overall, I appreciated the job they did in the amount of time they had. One thing that was disappointing was I had to spend time looking for certain things because they were placed in different rooms entirely, or I still have not been able to locate them despite looking everywhere. I hired a cleaning company to save me time and to do a better job than I could do at cleaning. Having to spend my time looking for items, and not being able to find them, has defeated that purpose and is making me reluctant to trust people to work in my house.

Sonja and her assistant did a wonderful job deep cleaning our home. They were very accommodating with a napping baby and my husband working in the home office, cleaning around us and quietly when needed. I’ve never seen my kitchen and bathrooms so sparkling - it felt like a whole new house! The attention to detail was appreciated and I enjoyed Sonja’s positive energy whenever we would converse. It’s clear she takes great pride in her work.

It was so easy working with Daniela. Our quote was provided within minutes of our inquiry. Next, an appointment was quickly set and confirmed. During the next few days, all the details and explanation of services was provided. It couldn’t be easier! Come cleaning day, a crew of 2 showed up exactly on time and began working right away. The cleaning was going to take several hours so we exchanged telephone numbers so that I would be informed 30 minutes before they finished. These are all little touches that makes things easy and seamless. At the end, the quality of the cleaning was more than I expected. The large 4 bedroom 3 bathroom house was cleaned from top to bottom. Honestly, I don’t think I could ever do a better job myself. These are true professionals that know the trick of the trade. This was a one time service but I would be happy to invite them back if I ever needed this type of work again. Don’t hesitate to book a cleaning session with them. You won’t be disappointed.
