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.

Our house looks sparkly and clean! They arrived on time and got right to work. This was our third attempt at hiring a housekeeper. After the last two I always had to go through the house and re-clean several things. I couldn't be happier that there was nothing I needed to fix after Lamorinda House Cleaning was finished. The house looks like it did back when I had time to clean it myself. They were meticulous and paid attention to detail. You can tell they take pride in their work.

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!!

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.

Andressa did a fantastic job cleaning my house! She was very responsive and professional in her communication, and her cleaning was amazing! She has an eye for detail, and I was impressed either how thorough she was from start to finish. My house smells amazing and is spotless now! Can’t recommend her enough...

Dinora's House Cleaning did a great job on all the areas that I had asked for help cleaning. They were thorough and completed in good time. Our place is so much cleaner now and I could never have got it to where it is now by myself.

Maria and her partner did a great job cleaning my house. They were right on time and got started right away. They seemed to have a set process on cleaning. The only thing I wasn’t clear on is if this was considered deep cleaning or regular cleaning. I like getting a list of things that are cleaned during a deep cleaning vs regular cleaning. Maybe this was a regular cleaning since it didn’t include the blinds. Overall I was happy with Maria’s work. Thank you!

Working with The Sisters Home Services was great! They were very responsive from start to finish. We did a move out cleaning - now I wish I was moving in to this beautiful clean house! We would definitely use them again in the future for regular cleanings or move outs. 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.

These two are absolutely the best house cleaners I have ever had. They we punctual and hardworking . I think I found my longterm cleaners. It is so hard to find a trustworthy hardworking professional, and kind cleaners. I highly recommend them to anyone and everyone. I have already given my coworkers their info because they are that good. Don't wait for more quotes they are the best. Thank you both for doing such an amazing job on my home .

I was very pleased with Kauana's team and the deep cleaning my home received. They even stayed an extra hour to make sure everything was done just right. My house sparkles now! Hardworking team and a great value. Highly recommended.

Daniela is very responsive, professional, and reliable. My favorite thing about working with her company is the level of communication and punctuality. I get an email confirmation and text before the team arrives. I get an email invoice after the work is done showing my payment. The cleaners were very punctual, friendly, and made sure I was satisfied with the work. My team didn’t speak English but use google translate to communicate. My mother speaks Spanish so I was able to understand what they were saying and used google translate if I didn’t know how to say something in Spanish. It worked out well. There were a few small things I had to clean when they were done (I am super picky and overly critical about cleanliness) but overall they did a good job. I used Daniela service for a move out clean and a move in clean. I am rehiring for regular cleaning in my new house. It can be hard to find a reliable, professional cleaning service and Daniela cleaning service is miles above others with reliability and punctuality. Thank you Daniela and team for providing a great cleaning service! I highly recommend!
