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.

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.

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.

Luana is the best! She did an awesome job cleaning every part of my house. Up until now I couldn't trust anyone but I am happy that I gave Luana a chance and I am so glad that I did. Once she was done house was shinning and smelled so good. Nonetheless to say I have hired her for future cleaning. :)

Sara was very good. She left my house spotless. She is very nice and kind and cares about her customers. She is very flexible and always finds time to accommodate you. I will continue using Sara as my house cleaner.

Pablo and Ana did a grey job on the home we had just moved to. They were very responsible and punctual. I could not receive them and they sent photos while they were working. Everything was very well cleaned and they also provide a budget friendly service. We were so happy with the results that we hired them to clean the house we’re moving out from. Thanks guys for your attention to detail and for going the extra mile. We appreciate your help and will definitely be in touch for future opportunities. Thanks!!

One of the worst services. I had requested for deep cleaning service as I was moving in. I had spoken to Laura(the agent) who was polite and made all the arrangements very well. But the crew who came in for the house cleaning was the worse. It was a family of four. They hardly did their job and charged me the entire payment. The old lady in the family was only arguing over little things. I understand that COVID is going on so if it is difficult for people to find work it is also difficult for us to be spending so much without getting the work done. Really disappointed!!

Contacted the guy who was in charge about 5 times total. Not only did he offer ($140) without me implying a discount for deep cleaning but later said we have to charge additional $50 for the deep cleaning service because they didn’t expect That much work. I selected deep cleaning for a reason! The first day only one lady came and after 30 mins she said she has another appointment (wasn’t informed prior to booking) but she lied because she was parked in my drive way and I parked across from my house. I saw her leave and called my mom who was home and she said that the lady said she has a another appointment and had to leave but will return the next day (which was today). She parked on the other block for about ten minuets so I was confused because she “was running late to her other appointment) Everything she had moved she left it there on the table making a bigger mess as she left. Contacted the guy and he said they will organize the pantry and take care of the kitchen. Came home today as they were finishing up and saw that the pantry was not organized nor was the shelves wiped. There was still dust around the corners of the floor and bathroom. Didn’t want to tell the ladies because I didn’t want them to feel bad so I told the guy in charge and every time he said he’ll talk to them. So now After workout a 12 hr shift (4am to 4 pm) I’m going to empty my kitchen cabinets and and pantry and clean it myself. I told the guy I don’t care about the $190 just as long as the service matches the price. Their name is “Quality Cleaning” however they don’t live up to their name. I’m convinced that the other reviews are staged. They state that they’re in business for 8 years but why are the hired only 2x? I should’ve paid attention to that prior to booking. Sent pictures of places that still needed cleaning after they”cleaned” the area to the guy and he hasn’t responded. I paid them the $190 because I appreciate the little effort they put it and because I stick to my words. I wouldn’t recommend this crew but if you’re looking to laugh about the poor quality and want to waste your money then go ahead. I’m going to cancel all further bookings with them. P.S. these photos were taken after they “cleaned” the pantry and a screenshot of informing the guy! Still no response and it’s been an hr since they left. During these hard times make sure you find GOOD QUALITY of services that you need done.
