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.

The house was cleaned very well specially the surface cleaning but the deep cleaning aspect was not very visible. One of the cleaners was very nice and detailed but the other cleaner commented on how dirty the house was when we told them we were just unpacking. That was pretty rude. But the overall satisfaction was good taking into how well the other cleaner shined up the surfaces!

Great job! Punctual, fast & thorough. I am a Realtor and Tynia cleaned a house I sold. She did a great job so we could turn over the house to the Buyer in great condition. Very satisfied and highly recommended!

This was my first time using this company for house cleaning... the whole process was very easy and smooth. They are very quick to respond. The two cleaners that showed up, on time, were very nice and worked hard. They did a great job and were very nice. I have scheduled regular cleaning going forward with the range team.

I needed a last minute move out cleaning and they did such an amazing job. The house was absolutely spotless, price was fair, and communication was fantastic. I would recommend them to anyone needing home cleaning services and I’ll be calling them again the next time I need them. 😊

I chose them because they had good reviews but was disappointed and would not use them again. I was very specific about my high ceilings and that I wanted them to deep clean and furniture moved to dust behind and under sofas and dressers. When they arrived they were friendly and got right to work but as I walked through the house with the lead person he told me they didn’t move furniture. Later he wanted more money to clean book shelves. Then he told me he couldn’t reach the high soffits to clean them properly even with my extension ladder. Then he wanted more money because the job was taking longer then he planned. I had been very clear about the size of my house and the scope of work I wanted done. I wasn’t looking to get a low price I wanted specific deep cleaning done and was willing to pay for it but their focus seemed to be cleaning as quickly as possible as they stayed barely four hours. The young man who was the lead was pleasant but he kept having to call his boss for direction and I don’t think he had much experience. They would probably be fine for a move out or simple house but not for a more complex or deep cleaning project.

Tynia and Chris are AMAZING! My home is cleaner than it has ever been in the nearly three years we’ve lived here - they truly live up to the “OCD” in their name. Walking through my home and seeing my stark white shower tiles, sparkling appliances, shining hardwood floors, and artful vacuum patterns in my carpets, I can tell Tynia and Chris take pride in their work- it literally shows through in every corner of my home. And it was a big job - we’re a three story, 6 bedroom, 4 bathroom household with three dogs that shed. Yikes! Thank goodness for OCD. Looks aside, my home smells *incredible* - in the past, with other cleaners, I’ve come home to a clean house but endured the nagging smell of bleach or other harsh chemicals for days; not this time! My home smells floral and fresh in a know-it’s-clean, not overpowering, way. Service aside, Tynia’s pricing is very competitive and she offers a great value compared to other cleaners I’ve worked with and vetted. She was among the first to respond to my posting on Thumbtack, and remained highly responsive throughout the entire process. She arrived right on time, walked through my home with me to ensure she was meeting my needs, and she even texted progress updates while working through my home, and pictures of the final finished product before locking up and leaving for the day. On top of all this, she’s *very* friendly and a gem to work with. We will definitely be calling OCD back next time we’re in need!
