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 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. 

How much is a house cleaning?

The national average cost for house cleaning ranges between $25 and $50 per hour, per cleaner. However, the cost of house cleaning services near you might be different.

House cleaning prices vary based on how many square feet your home is, how dirty your house gets and how often the cleaning service comes. And, prices can be lower in areas with a lower cost of living, higher in big cities or affluent regions.

Some companies charge a set amount — such as 5 cents — per square foot, with a minimum amount, such as $100. You may save money by increasing the frequency of your house cleaning visits. Often a company will charge you less per cleaning when you schedule more cleanings per month. The cost advantage rewards your loyalty, and also reflects the fact that more frequent cleanings make it easier to maintain a high level of cleanliness in your home. A housecleaning service may charge more for the first visit or for one-time services than for recurring cleanings.

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.

The quality of cleaning was very low. 1 of the guys who came was very dis-interested and did not care about cleaning. They did very superficial cleaning for $200. They completed cleaning a 3bedroom/4bathroom house in 1hour 15minutes.

Milan Cleaning did a good job doing a move-out cleaning for my 3 bedroom/1bath house. The place was move-in ready when they left.

She arrived 10 minutes ahead of the scheduled time and prepared to clean. As it was written in her profile, she really cleaned every corner of my house with no dust. After all the cleaning, she asked us if there was anything she could do to help and gave some tips on how to keep the house clean. One thing that is was not good is that the companion did not meet her expertise. Except that, we were so satisfied.

My house was unusually dirty, and Lanzanos spent extra time getting it really clean. I was very pleased.

Oscar and his crew responded within the hour of my request. I got a consultation that day and was offered a reasonable price considering the state that my parent’s house was in. They were able to come out and clean the very next day which was great on short notice! They were very punctual to the consultation and the actual cleaning and the team wore their masks the whole time, which I appreciated very much because my parents are older and at risk. As far as quality- the team of three did a stand up job in my parent’s house that hadn’t been professionally cleaned in years. The house looked fantastic when they finished and Oscar had me walk through to make sure everything was to my liking. I would recommend them to any friend for a deep clean. They were great!

The woman Rebeca never gave me an appointment for them to clean my house. I'm still waiting, but if they don't want the job, there are other places that do.

I am new to the area and had a move in cleaning through another company that was terrible. I was very skeptical when I hired Katia but was very pleasantly surprised at the job they did. Katia and her team were at my house for two hours and they left the house spotless. They paid attention to every detail and left finishing touches that made me feel like I was in a 5 star resort. I look forward to my regularly scheduled cleanings!!!

The Cleaning Crew cleaned my house thoroughly and in a timely manner. The owner came to my home beforehand to provide an estimate and discuss what I needed done. I found him to be fair and professional. The team worked really well together. I’m looking forward to using them on a regular basis.

We have a three story townhome that needed a lot of love. Karina and her assistant cleaned the house, bringing their own cleaning products, and thoroughly cleaned our home. They didn’t even flinch with our very excited Dog’s greeting. Their rate is fair and it was easy to communicate what I needed. I was super surprised that Karina cleaned out my fridge (embarrassingly needed a lot of TLC) and she did it without me asking her to. I’ll be asking her to come back regularly!

Seth has been helping us cleaning our apartment for the past couple of years. He is extremely friendly, highly responsive and so trustworthy. He also uses environment friendly / non-toxic cleaning products which I like since I have a toddler at home. I like how our house look like and smells after he finishes cleaning. I do recommend him for everyone.

Laysa and her counterpart showed up on time. They worked efficiently without any need of direction or supervision. They even moved the couch to clean under it and underneath all the beds without being asked. My house looks great. I am looking forward to working with them again!

Winnie is very kind, punctual, and consistently thorough with her cleaning. She’s cleaned for us for 4 months now and the quality of her services hasn’t changed. It’s just her, so you don’t have to worry about extra people in your house (especially now during covid) and she will wear a mask and shoe covers. She also used a thermometer before coming inside one time, to be safe. I would recommend her services!

I’ve used thumbtack cleaning services a few times but this pair is the best!!! They were vey nice, friendly, and kind and made me feel comfortable working on my own work while they provided services. Great value! The carpet as well as hard surfaces feel totally different now! Their cleaning and organizing style inspired me so I would want to organize my room as they put it today onwards. I would definitely use their services whenever such need arises (at least once per semester). Would also recommend them to anyone who needs house organization and cleaning

A team of 2 came in for about 4 hours and did an excellent job of cleaning the whole house. Also on the same day the kitchen was way messier than usual due to a blow up of a pressure cooker with vegetables flying all over the place. The team did a great job of leaving no evidence behind. I will definitely hire them again.

After getting several bids via phone, we asked Alfonso to come check out our house in person. He arrived within 45 min on saturday (since I was homebound that day anyway) and quickly checked the place out. The final bid was very reasonable considering the market for biweekly cleaning now. Mary and Sylvia have come twice now, once for a deep clean and then for their first regular clean. The service has been very thorough without any undesirable chemical smells left behind. They bring all of their own supplies as well. They have been flexible and accommodating all along the way, despite clearly being very busy. I'm pleased I put an ad on thumbtack!
