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.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a house cleaner when social distancing?

If you hire a house cleaner to clean the inside of your home, do not make physical contact. Stay at least 6 feet apart at all times, sanitize any surfaces after cleaning and wash your hands thoroughly. Exchange all payments digitally instead of with cash. When contacting a house cleaner, put a plan in place to ensure everyone's safety.

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.

Should I hire a move-out cleaning service or do it myself?

You may benefit from hiring a professional move-out cleaning service, depending on your budget, time frame and whether you will be getting a deposit back. Hiring a cleaning service takes the stress out of your move. But if you’ve had your house regularly deep-cleaned, or if your landlord will charge you for cleaning anyway, you can save costs by DIY-ing it.

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 are the different types of house cleaning services I can get?

There are several services offered by professional house cleaning companies, each suited for a different purpose. These services include:

  • Standard cleaning, which is a basic cleaning typically done on a weekly or monthly basis;
  • Deep cleaning, which is a detailed cleaning with more intensive work than a standard clean;
  • Move-in and move-out cleaning, which is a detailed service preparing a home for residents moving in or out;
  • Green house cleaning, which is a service that uses eco-friendly cleaning supplies and products. 

Aside from the type of cleaning services available, homeowners may also choose daily, weekly, monthly or one-time services.

How much should you tip maids or cleaning services?

Tipping between 15 and 20 percent is considered an appropriate tip for maids and house cleaners — just as it would with a barber, food delivery driver or taxi operator. During the holidays, you might want to consider tipping a bit more. 

It’s important to note that some housekeeping and maid services might include a tip within the service fee, which should be explained to you in the service contract. Talk to house cleaners in your area to find out what's included in their fees.

Arlyn cleaned my house today and if I could give her more than 5 stars than I would. She did a wonderful job. I am so happy with the job that she did. I will definitely continue using her. I have had other house cleaners and they never cleaned this well. I am extremely happy with Arlyn.

Maricela did an amazing job with deep cleaning our house today. We were very much pleased with how she took her time and thoughtfully cleaned the house. She was also really great with our pets as well. I and my husband feel we got very lucky when we found Maricela. We’re also very thankful she’s decided to continue coming bi weekly to continue cleaning our house. Thank you Maricela you’re a total angel and you’ve taken a great load off of us.

Antony and Marco did a spectacular job deep cleaning my 70-year-old home. Every surface - moldings, baseboards, wainscoting, chair rails, shelves, and ledges sparkled. They are the best house cleaners I have ever hired, and we are having them return for bi-weekly cleaning.

Wow! My home has not looked this sparkling clean in a very long time!! Carmen was professional, thorough, super nice, and hit spots that were not even on my radar. I did not think to take “before” pics because I really thought my house basically clean. She proved me wrong but now it is SPOTLESS! If you are looking for your house to shine, contact Carmen! Thank you so much!!!

I have never had someone clean my house before and Celia exceeded my hopes and expectations. When I looked at the areas that Celia cleaned I was in shock. I think it looked better than it did when I bought my house! Super exceptional job and she paid attention to small spaces and crevices. My lights even shine brighter. I will definitely use Celia again.

For those looking for a a housecleaner that you can communicate with directly, peace of mind cleaning is not it. Nanci I'm assuming is the owner & pays her cleaners hourly. Was quoted $235 over the phone for a 10-3 cleaning. The cleaner was sent to my home alone, despite me telling Nanci over the phone about my house and what I needed done. She wasn't doing ANY bedrooms, just 3 bathrooms, and the rest of the house. This did not of course include any deep cleaning, fridge or windows, just a standard cleaning. The cleaner did not do 2/3 bathrooms, and the one bathroom she did do, she didn't clean the shower or even dump the trash. It wasn't her fault, she just didn't have enough time. Only half the stairs were cleaned, and she never even made it upstairs. The owner told the cleaner she was out of time and couldn't finish. Very disappointing. She offered to charge me $225 instead of $235 and apologized, she also offered to come clean the rest herself the next day- but I had family coming to town so I stayed up cleaning it myself. Overall I don't recommend this service, but I would use the cleaner that came out as she did do a good job, but I'd pay her a flat rate directly and I'm sure she'd properly finish.

I was extremely happy with their work. Four ladies came and worked non-stopped for approx 4 hours. They left the house spotless and it smelled so cleaned. I would definitely recommend this agency and use them again.

Fresh Start Cleaning was a life saver! We were prepping our home for an open house and needed a deep cleaning bad! The owner was responsive immediately, asked for details, and quoted me a fair price. She was extra communicative, respectful, confirmed the cleaning the Friday before our scheduled appointment and kept in touch upon completion. The home looks show ready, smells great, and took a huge weight off my shoulders! I couldn’t recommend a cleaning company more! Amazing service and quality!!

An absolute nightmare. Didn’t deliver on promises. His crew doesn’t know how to clean. He quoted me one price then added another $120. Promised to send another crew but never did. This was supposed to be a deep clean on an empty house. Baseboards, fans, doorways, anything behind a door, corners were not even touched. I will never use or recommend this service to anyone. Little more than a scam in my opinion. DON’T HIRE THESE PEOPLE.

Tanya did a tremendous job in cleaning my rental house and making it ready for the next tenant. She is a perfectionist in cleaning the property and made it rental ready when she was finished!!! Her attention to detail and her work ethic is a refreshing addition to other contractors who I have worked with. I would hire Tanya in a New York minute to work for me in my company if I had not retired! She is a honest professional who does the job right! Hire her and prepare to be pleasantly surprised and supremely satisfied…
