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.

The couple arrived right on time. They did a great job! My house sparkles now. A deep clean was needed as I have difficulties with high and low cleaning. My husband and I would recommend them to all. They also do carpets and commercial buildings.

I felt comfortable with Amber immediately. She was personable, well-prepared, punctual and seemed happy to get started on cleaning my floors which were way overdue to be cleaned. I was delighted that she was the first to respond to my request, and she was available to do the work the very next day, which I had not expected. She relieved my stress of having so much to get done before my family arrives for Thanksgiving week. She brought calm and happy energy to my house and did an excellent job efficiently in a reasonable time, and left my house smelling CLEAN and me with a smile on my face for days.

Working with Jennifer was a pleasure from beginning to end! She responded immediately to my request for a deep cleaning project on an older house that needed a lot of attention. After speaking with her, I was confident that I could leave it to her to take care of all the details. She was available to start the project immediately and showed up with her crew on time the next day. The rate for the amount of work that needed to be done was very reasonable and they did an excellent job. The house smells so much better and is clean enough for a crawling 10-month old who handles everything. Definitely will use her service again for any cleaning projects - first class.

Monica and her team were professional, pleasant and did a great job. They were feeling under the weather, but still did a great job. They had my house clean and sparkling in about 2 hours.I will definitely be using their services again.

Roxy was early and got right to work. She likes to do a deep clean the first time. I had another technician coming to my mothers house so we got cut a little short, but she provided a good service.

Seferino and her husband were absolutely incredible. From the very start, they were incredibly communicative and understood exactly what we were looking for. We’re moving out of state and needed a deep clean for landlord inspection and they absolutely delivered. We lived there for 6+ years and the house looks as if it were just built. Seriously. Every floor, bathroom and appliance was cleaned to perfection. Completely blown away. Really. The attached picture is our oven after today’s cleaning, which admittedly, was a disaster before today. It looks as if it were just installed right out of the box. I almost can’t believe it’s this clean. Again, a testament to their incredible work. They spent more time at our house than scheduled to ensure we received what we needed and it’s very clear they take pride in their work. They’re also a tremendous value. I could not be happier with them (they’re great people, too!) and their work. I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking for a high-quality cleaning. The best I’ve ever seen.

They did an excellent job cleaning my house after we moved out. The windows sparkled and there were no cobwebs or dust where the large furniture was removed. Our landlord was very impressed and decided not to have any additional work done! Thank you for all your help!

Amber was super sweet... told me about $200 and $85 for windows then got there was half way done I had to go so my friend came to stay. I wanted to do the right thing have money for her when she was done. She didn’t wipe cabinets, didn’t even mop she had a cheap swifter doubles her price then didn’t do two sets of blinds in the house. Things I asked her to do before she left -Wipe down some smudges on a window (easy to miss) -wipe down the bottom outer hearth of chimney -scrub splatter spots on 2 cabinet doors in kitchen Things I did after she left. -Wiped down 2 kitchen blinds and spare bedroom blinds. (Sink one still needs some cleaning) -Dusted tops of door trims and tops of pictures in hallway and large entry room. -Emptied dishwasher -Cleaned dust off trim of kitchen cabinets -Took trash out This was outrageous and her price ended up being stupid high. I was even helping clean baseboards and walls because she spent 2 hours in a shower!
