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.

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.

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.

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. 

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. 

When viewing house cleaners on Thumbtack, you might see a Top Pro badge. This indicates that the service is one of the most popular and highly-rated professionals using the platform.

The best, hardest working, most thorough team ever. They cleaned parts of the house I didn't even know needed cleaning. They pulled out the stove and cleaned behind it and I had no idea how dirty it was back there. They did an exceptionally amazing deep clean. Simply perfect.

She was fabulous! Her quality more than matches her prices, she is flexible with her schedule and goes above and beyond what ANY other house cleaner has ever done (cleaned my dryer vents and washing machine, emptied and loaded the dishwasher, used her vacuum but emptied mine). I am happy to say I have an official house cleaner! Thank you!!

Very nice people that came to clean my residence. I paid for a deep cleaning and I’m not sure if they were afraid to use certain chemicals with my residence, but there was still a lot of spots the were missed. I ended up cleaning my house the day after again. Even my family came over and asked if I paid for a cleaning company, which is embarrassing, but it is what it is. Nice people. Cleaning service was under moderate.

If I could give zero stars I totally would. I hired her to clean my house and gave her very specific instructions on what needs to be done but didn’t do any of it. I told her to clean the balcony but it wasn’t clean at all and she said she doesn’t clean bird poop. I’m sorry but I find that laughable. Then I asked her to dust the furniture and that wasn’t done. Asked her to clean the oven and it was barely any difference. Asked her to clean the blinds and they were still dusty. Asked her to clean the bathroom which is only 35sf, asked her to clean the floor which she did and she couldn’t clean the soap on the shower door which she couldn’t figure out how to do it. She literally spent 2 AND A HALF HOURS, just in the bathroom alone. Something that would take an average cleaner just 30min and she had the audacity to try to charge me for 3hrs. She was missing clean supplies like a mop and I specifically told her to bring her own cleaning supplies. Her rates is $25/hr but she’ll drag on the task just to try to hustle you. A real waste of time and money, she’s in the wrong business. And to make matters worse, she stole clean supplies that were below the kitchen sink, an area in which I never told her to go to. When I confronted her about it, she said it was an accident but I just don’t understand how you can accidentally steal something. Even after this ordeal, she would not stop contacting me. I should’ve trusted the bad reviews because it was spot on. Do NOT trust her with cleaning your house or in your house for that matter. She’s a fraud and a thief.

Max and his co-worker arrived a few minutes early and worked very hard cleaning our house top-to-bottom. They were very attentive to requests we had about particular areas. We were very pleased with the results and plan to have them return monthly. I'd also lost a valuable ring in our house the week before they came and Max found it!

Just had my first cleaning with Jhully and had a good experience. I live in a 1750 sq ft 3BD (plus den) 2BA house and Jhully and her team cleaned for 2 hours. She arrived on time and is very responsive. Work quality was good, but some areas needed more attention. She followed up with me after for comments and feedback which I gave and she was appreciative and acknowledged those will be addressed at next cleaning. We’ll see how the next cleaning goes, but so far so good.
