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.

Wow! What an amazing job and a great value. Their team of 4 went above and beyond what was asked. Paid for a light cleaning and ended up with a deep cleaning of my house. I’ll be using them for all my future house cleaning needs.

I had George and his crew come to my rental house this week to do a Move-Out cleaning. In a matter of two hours I came back to the cleanest, most immaculate house I had ever seen. Every surface had been meticulously cleaned, including two ovens, stovetop, refrigerator/freezer, bathrooms, windows (inside and outside), plantation shutters, window blinds, every drawer, shelf and every floor. I am very picky and, upon thorough inspection, could not find one surface that had not been cleaned to my satisfaction. And the whole house smelled so good too! I am so pleased with the outstanding cleaning service they provided and feel very proud to hand over the house to my landlord in this pristine condition.

Cleaning was not detailed and pricing is way too high for the lack of cleanliness. $100/hr for light cleaning, if you are looking for a deep clean, this is not the business to go with. The picture below is what they call clean, we had to ask them to clean it a second time. Can you even imagine with what the rest of the house looks like, if this is considered “deep cleaned”?

Wow! I cant say enough. Amazing work, this was a DEEP cleaning move in cleaning. The house hadn't been cleaned in years, I was so worried none would be up for the task. They exceeded my expectations. I have a toddler and a baby on the way, so I was super worried. But they put this mama at ease! Here some before and after!

Excellent first cleaning. My house was recently remodeled and the dust from construction was difficult to remove, but they did an excellent job. I would ask them to come back on a regular basis. Very thorough and professional.

The cleaning experience was fine. BUT THE OWNER IS TERRIBLE. BEWARE OF INCONSISTENCY IN CLEANING PEOPLE BEING BLAMED ON YOU AND REQUESTING MORE MONEY AFTER SIX CLEANINGS because one of some of her cleaning people clean quicker than others! She has requested several review but I did not review until now because I felt something off with the owner! NOW I KNOW WHAT IT IS! So here is your review. We had the same person come several times and do a great job within the 3 hour time limit. (They are very strict on that). This past time a new person came. She spent three hours on just our downstairs area and another two hours on the upstairs (one bed room and two bathrooms). She left before cleaning the last bathroom because the owner called and told her she HAD to move on. We have a 3 bedroom house and 2.5 bathrooms. But we only have ONE bedroom cleaned and all bathrooms. Therefore the price was given the same each time. Since we have pets their is hair around but it is the same as sweeping anything else because we have have all hardwood and tile. They should be sweeping anyways. The hair shouldn't change the amount of time to clean between cleans. The owner is full of it. She contacted us saying we needed to pay more because of the hair and size of the home. This is after our SIXTH cleaning! Five times they 3 hours was fine and one time a new person took FIVE hours. But that is because of the hair and size. NO. When I questioned this she immediately said she could not longer clean our home. FINE but don't say it is because of the condition and size of our home. It didn't GROW the dogs didn't loose all their hair to create more around the house. Say because your people can't clean at a consistent rate and you can't afford the one lady to take forever to clean our house. Hire and train your cleaners to consistently and quickly clean at the same rate and you wouldn't have a problem. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND because I think the owner would have asked to raise the price no matter how long it took after some cleanings. Just wants your money doesn't care to please the customer or how to treat a customer.

I am so happy that we selected Tania for cleaning our really old and REALLY dirty house. Suffice to say it hadn't had a deep clean since before covid. Tania showed up on time and went above and beyond to ensure that everything was absolutely spotless. She is really really good and her service is worth every penny. We look forward to selecting her service again in the future
