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.

Tania and her team did an amazing job cleaning my house and was very responsive. I had just moved in a new house and we had workers in the garden and moving furniture so the house was quite dirty but she made it spotless. I really recommend her and will call her again to help us with house cleaning on a regular basis.

I hired Nidi to do a deep house cleaning (as a birthday present for my wife). She works alone, but did a great job. It was well worth it.

Erika and her assistant are superior cleaners who provide the highest quality service. They just did a deep cleaning for me and my house is like brand new, sparkling clean and fresh. It is so clean that even the air is clean -- no visible dust or fur floating in the air that we usually see (we have four cats and a dog). They did a fantastic job cleaning all the tough dirt that no one would want to touch, such as the toilet bowls and sticky caked-on grease on the range hood and stove top. They even figured out on their own which bed sheets to use when I forgot to place the linens on the bed for them to change the sheets. They are sweet ladies who are professional and hardworking and such a pleasure to work with. I have hired them to do bi-weekly cleanings going forward.

They were prompt in responding to queries. Were (almost) on time reporting very early in the morning and got the job done fairly quickly. Really liked the end result. Cleaned up the house and some very tough stains in the kitchen and counter tops. Thanks!

The first two times they cleaned for me they were amazing. They did a fantastic job and I was so impressed. I thought finally I have found a great cleaning service. The third time was not as thorough, let it slide, thought they would do better the next time, after all everyone has a bad day. The last time, they were here for 30 minutes They rushed in and out, just wiped stuff down, didn't clean, floors were still dirty, bathtub was still not cleaned. I was working so didn't look around right after they finished. Didn't even look like my house was cleaned. Even my daughter when she got home asked, why the cleaners didn't come today. Don't mistake my kindness for weakness. They will be here tomorrow , I will talk to them about it. Hate to have to go over things that they should automatically do, but I will give them another try. I know what kind of job they are capable of doing.
