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.

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.

Thank you so much for cleaning our house last week. You guys did a phenomenal job. Although I can’t afford to do it twice a month, I can only do it once a month for $175. Let me know if you can do it otherwise I can look for someone else. Thank you so much again. Neomai @ 1679 Erickson Cir. Stockton.

Today I moved out of the house my family has owned since 1965. I finally sold the family home. Realizing after the move out of town, I would need to drive back and clean the house. OMG I would be to tired. So I turned to the professionals. Found Thumbtack and put my job request for a quote and waited. I picked Maricela to submit due to her reviews. Her clients really love her work!! I see why, she is a Professional that gets the job done. All of our conversations have been very positive, and made me feel like anything was possible. Since I had to leave one of my neighbors went to the house and she was floored with how beautiful the house looked and smelled. She asked me if I could send her, the contact information since she would love to have her over at her place. She is thorough, caring(doesn’t rush but gets it done right) and meticulous about her work ethic. Yes I recommend Maricela!!

They did a really nice job with what they did clean and I see they do take pride in the cleaning... but that being said I was a bit dissapointed. I wanted the focus to be on the kitchen but there was things in the kitchen I asked for, that were not done. Main thing being I wanted to clean the corners of the fridge and the fridge itself. And trash in kitchen wasn’t taken out, crumbs still left in cabinets. I asked for a deep clean in the kitchen. Seemed like they focused on other parts of the house, which I had not previously asked for. So I was charged extra because they were there for more hours, but I did not ask for all of the extra stuff the spent more time on. I was charged 60$ extra when I was told that it would be a different price. Then was told “it took longer than expected” “estimate was 150-180$” but i was told 150$ and got charged 210$. Feel there needs to be a better understanding and the focus needs to be on the job asked for.
