Your burning questions: answered

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. 

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.

Ana and Glaucia came to house in Sunnyvale. I was at the house and saw that they have a good process in place when performing cleaning service. They did a thorough and excellent cleaning job! I would hire Daniela Rios Cleaning Services for future cleaning needs with other houses as well.

This was my first time hiring house cleaners, and I had a positive experience working Milan Cleaning Company. They were great and transparent with communication when it came to pricing / our cleaning needs. The cleaning job was impressive - the house really needed a deep cleaning in places that hadn't been cleaned for a while. I would absolutely recommend Milan Cleaning Company for your house cleaning needs.

But the cleaner team were able to accommodate and work with whatever spaces available to compete the entire house cleaning. Great attitude!

So professional and friendly. The house is so clean, you can tell the difference with a professional team versus us trying to keep it clean. Will be using them from here on out.

We didn’t like her service charges. She came in and said your house needs deep cleaning and asked us to pay $150 ( bathroom cleaning, kitchen cleaning and no deep cleaning at all) we will recommend her but clear in advance what she will cover in $150

OK. Nothing is really cleaned. I am just moving in so the house is vacant. No furniture at all. I wanted the washer and the dryer to be cleaned. It was dark and I was tired so I believed that she said she cleaned the dryer. No way. It was untouched. Now I am doing it myself after paying $350 including $30 tip. Also last night I noticed the fridge was dirty and their boss made them come back to clean but the male cleaner didn’t even enter the house so my husband pulled and pushed the fridge to help the cleaning lady. The kitchen cabinets were barely clean. Here is a picture of a dead insect.

Oliver’s Cleaning Service is excellent and went above and beyond with our cleaning. Sonja is extremely professional — communicative, clear, punctual and extremely thorough! She and her team member worked so hard (for hours!) to clean every nook and cranny. Our house looks amazing! I am so pleased and plan to use Oliver’s for ongoing cleaning services.

We have a big house and it’s really helpful that Lopez brought a team of three. They did a thorough job and clean to the details. Once they finish a room, they ask you to check if everything looks good. Thanks for the detailed cleaning and efficiency!

It was an excellent experience. Booking was seamless, responsive and timely. The professionals arrived on time and did a great job! Did not ask any questions and cleaned without judgment (our house was indeed in bad shape). The price is on the expensive side for my house so, I may not get them very often. But, I agreed on the price before hand. So, no complaints. The cleaning was impeccable and the experience very pleasant.
