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.

How do I prepare for a house cleaner?

There are several things you can do in preparation for a house cleaning to improve the efficiency and quality of the job. If you’re unfamiliar with a cleaning service, hiding and locking away any obvious valuables lying around can offer great peace of mind.

Depending on the preference of the cleaner, you may need to lock up your pets before the cleaners arrive. Washing dishes and decluttering the house allows a house cleaner to do their job more effectively. And leaving special notes for the cleaners about certain areas in your home that need attention is also helpful.

Ask house cleaners near you about their tips to help you prepare for their 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.

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. 

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.

I couldn't be happier with the cleaning service Celias cleaning provided. The attention to detail and thoroughness of the cleaning was impressive and appreciated. Our house looks so fresh and clean. Thank you, Celia’s cleaning! See you again!

Value and punctuality too! Very kind work crew that really deep cleaned my house! I couldn’t have found a better company to help me with the overbearing and overwhelming cleaning my house needed. Will hire every time and recommend to everyone.

After the first crew performed their “deep clean” I had to request that they come back to actually finish the job correctly. The owner graciously returned with another helper and addressed our concerns, but even then I felt like a deep clean hadn’t truly been performed. There was still schmutz on the floor, walls, and backsplash. And to be clear, our house was already reasonably clean. For nearly $300, I think I’ll take on the work myself next time: at least I know my house will be cleaned to my standards. This company overcharged and under-performed.

Best cleaning job ever! This was the most amazing thing that ever happened for us. We were stuck because our scheduled cleaner for our move out had canceled at the last minute. Within six hours warning, they arrived and cleaned our house late into the night (like 10:45). They were professional, hard working, great at finding things WE didn't know needed cleaning. Our house went from extremely worn, to looking like new. If I I could give them more than five stars, I would. True professionals, true hard work, true value, and the best investment I made in having them come clean our home.

I hired Sparklean to do a deep cleaning in our home. David’s staff was highly professional and very thorough, cleaned everything we asked for and they took their time. Norma and Aura were super sweet too and did an amazing job. The kitchen and bathrooms were so clean! My house looks and smells amazing. Highly recommend. Would hire again.

We had hired Clean 4 You. The owner was quick to respond and communicated well at the beginning. There was 2 ladies that arrived to clean (punctual) and were very thorough. The house smelled clean. An appointment was made for the second cleaning and confirmed. They were a no show. My wife called and texted with no response. I texted and sent a message through Thumbtack and still no reply. I can’t give a good review if I’m left hanging with only expectations.

I was amazed at how hard they worked and how clean my house got. I appreciated their focus on getting their job done but they didn’t rush. They made sure things were done right.

The couple that came out couldn’t speak any English so communication was very difficult. Some things were done that I had asked them not to do. I thought their cost was too much. They charged me $230 and were only here for about two and a half hours. That’s $46/hour. Which I think is rather pricey for house cleaning.
