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. 

When viewing house cleaners on Thumbtack, you might see a Top Pro badge. This indicates that the service is one of the most popular and highly-rated professionals using the platform.

Lidia's House Cleaning has been really good. They are easy to communicate with and showed up right on time. They cleaned the house beautifully, it looks even better than when we moved in. We'll be using them regularly.

G’S Fantastic House Cleaning showed up right at 8:00 am with all cleaning supplies and equipment. There were four pleasant women who started cleaning right away. We had just had the popcorn ceilings removed in the entryway, 2 bedrooms and living room so there was a lot of dust everywhere. They worked continuously for four hours and when they were done, the house was spotless and smelled fresh and clean. I would highly recommend G’S Fantastic House Cleaning. All you need to know is right there in the name. FANTASTIC!

The housecleaners have to get a proficient training to get skills how to clean the house. I ordered a deep cleaning just to strait up everything in the empty not dirty house. And it was not even a standard cleaning, a sloppy job, but the charge was $180 for one woman-housecleaner. I'm very disappointed. It was my first and last time.

Paula and her team did an incredible job cleaning my house! I have been searching for a reliable house cleaner and thankfully my search has ended after hiring Paula. She was very punctual and professional and I can’t express enough how well she did. When you have pets, your house gets dirty. Paula came in and left my place sparkling clean. 100% will hire again. Phenomenal job.

Lidia and her crew have been cleaning my house once a week for more than five years. She is professional, personable and very hardworking. She is honest and trustworthy and is very responsive to all requests and changes. She cleans both of my children's houses regularly, as well as other friends. Highly recommend her.

We had a fantastic experience with Alves House Cleaning for our first appointment. Emerson's turnaround time on Yelp is unmatched, booking experience was simple and fast. Emerson and Wanessa did an impressive cleaning job for our house - with very little input from me, they cleaned everything I could think of and then some. Extra points for their attention to detail in difficult-to-reach areas, and for the little touches like propping up my baby daughter's toy reindeer in her crib. I'm very happy with the outcome (my house literally sparkles), and I highly recommend them!

Jasmin and her husband did an awesome job! They arrived on time, were thorough and the house never looked so clean. This was a move out clean to prepare the home for rental use. We were very pleased with their services.

Thanks Victoria and Sareny coming to give our house a thorough deep cleaning. We have our beautiful house back after the renovation since 2012. We like them back in two weeks. Yesterday I recommented them to my coworkers. We like their work, cleaning the details,the corners and hard work with reasonable price. Victoria has a good communication skill with translation app. They are puncture, honest, young (full of energy ) and responsibility.

I inquired with Daniela for a deep clean. She sent 2 ladies over to clean my house. After the cleaning was completed I did a walk around to see how everything looked. I noticed things that were not even touched. The kitchen cabinet doors were not wiped down, only the inside of the microwave was clean, the kitchen walls were not wiped and there were some spots in the bathroom that was not cleaned. I asked for my blinds to be cleaned and I was charged $10 for each blind and they are still dirty. I have a few more pics but can only add 4.

The cleaning was good, but charged me more than what was quoted because my house was dusty? Isn't that why I need you? Didn't make sense to me, but I paid because they did a good job. I'd like more accurate quotes. I would understand if my house was super dirty, or bigger than described, but not dusty?

Selene and her husband did an amazing job cleaning our unit. The the previous tenants left the unit filthy and management didn’t get it cleaned before giving us the keys. I found Selene online and she had great review so I decided to give her a call. I’m so glad I did! I opted for the move out clean, it was $200 and she and her partner cleaned EVERYTHING. They showed up right on time. They started at 8:45a and finished around 1:45p. That’s FIVE hours of cleaning. When we came back after they finished, it was like walking into a different house! Amazing! If you are looking for a cleaning service I would definitely recommend solution home cleaning.

The team was hired for a 2bd/2 bath house for a deep clean. I was shocked how thorough the team was with blinds windows. I didn't see a single hair ball from our pup ANYWHERE! Strongly recommend and will be using these wonderful women on a regular basis.

The house smelled so nice and looked great! The cleaning was very thorough - she moved quite a few things to get into the corners and such. Her GPS ended up taking her to a different location and she called to give me a heads up that she would be running late because of that.
