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.

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.

Was able to complete the “mission impossible” job as I was in the process of moving and there were still items here and there in the house, an my wife was keep arguing we had to reschedule. But the cleaner team were able to accommodate and work with whatever spaces available to compete the entire house cleaning. Great attitude!

Flor did a fantastic job of cleaning the house. She’s very nice and communicative. She’s also an amazing professional who stands by her work. A couple of small areas in the house were accidentally not cleaned and she came back again to take care of it after I mentioned it. Would highly recommend her to anybody!

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.

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.

They were great at getting back to me promptly regarding a general house clean and also a fridge deep clean on a separate occasion. They did a thorough job with a really great value - I would highly recommend them to anyone I know in the area!

The cleaning team took 3 hours to clean my whole house. I expect they would finished it longer since I paid for a deep cleaning. The ladies who came were very nice and polite though. I like them. They asked permission when they were not sure on something. However I feel like some part of the house wasnt clean enough. My house is a new construction home, and it needs extra work on the floor. They did mop my floor twice, but it still needs more mopping. They wanted to come again to mop on Sunday when my family came, I asked if they can come on Monday, but I received no reply. Then today I just found out my shelves were not cleaned by the Sisters at all.. I installed these shelves on a wall stone one day before I requested The Sister’s service, and the dust are still there even after the Sisters cleaned my house. My wife complained is that they did not bring their own paper towel. They used 1.5 rolls of my paper towel. I’m not sure if this has always been the case. UPDATE (in response to The Sister's reply): 1. We did not ask the Sisters to clean my house again because of the party, we only asked them to clean the floor which still has dust from the initial cleaning. We have cleaned everything else, and we finished the party with a state as clean as before the party. The party has nothing to do with the review. Cleaning the home again after the party is unfair for the Sisters, so we did not want that. We only wanted the Sisters to clean the floor. There is no trash or food on the floor caused by the party. We keep our home perfectly clean. We really keep them clean and neat everyday. 2. The dust on the shelves is not one week of dust. It is very obvious that it is dust from me drilling the wall a week ago. I also saw drywall and stone dust on the floor around the shelves on the night after the Sisters came. The color is white, so it’s obviously wall dust. I just forgot to tell them because I was very, very busy. 3. I also forgot to mention that the powder room in my first floor had a lot of dust around the corners on the night after the Sisters came. This is obviously a part that they missed Overall, the cleaning ladies are great people. The cleaning is average quality. We hoped for more thorough cleaning for the price we paid.

It was a pleasure from beginning to end with Lidia's House Cleaning service. We moved to the area a few months ago and had not found a cleaning service we liked yet. I gave LHC a chance and now our search is over! Lidia was super, super responsive and very clear in her communication. The ladies that she sent were very nice and extremely thorough. I had a few specific requests which they made sure were completed to our expectations. They did an excellent job. I'm glad our search is over and I can't recommend Lidia's House Cleaning service enough.

Anna did a very good job cleaning our house. Her price is reasonable. She even cleaned the fridge and the windows! I would hire her again. She was late for our appointment, but she notified me ahead of time. My time happened to be very flexible on that date, which was okay for me.

Cintya and her friend were amazing!! We recently moved into this home and after the cleaning everything feels so clean and fresh. I don't feel like using any space in the house because it will get dirty again. But no worries, Cintya and her team will be back in a few days again :-). I am so glad to have found "the one" for helping us keep our home clean. Thanks Cintya!

Alberto and his crew have done a very good job for me. They are quick and efficient and get my house nice and tidy as I head into the weekend. Patt's Cleaning Service does a good job at a competitive price.
