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. 

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.

Really enjoying my clean house. George and his crew of four cleaners did an excellent, thorough job. They worked like a well oiled machine. The ash in the air was all over everything in our house. George even worked with me and came a few days early because our guests were coming a few days early! Great value. Thank you Lucy's!

I’ve been unable to deep clean my 2-story home due to a knee surgery about a month ago, and found Mary’s Housekeeping. They did an excellent job. Most house cleaning services are more costly, with the same (and most times, less) efficiency. Definitely worth the cost of a deep clean. Will hire them again!

My floors haven't been this clean since I moved in house. She was an excellent worker not leaving until job was done. She asked if she had questions and helped out tremendously while here. I recommend her for any cleaning need.

They arrived on time and she exceeded my expectations. They left the house smelling and looking so good. I would highly recommend them. Every room she cleaned was left so clean, I loved it. If anyone is thinking of hiring her, I give her 5 stars! Thank you for the great you did. I am recommending Clara to my friends and family. Again thank you for the professional job you did at my house. I loved your work!

I am so happy with the work she did. I cant wait for her to come back and clean. I have not seen my house look so good. 5 stars is not enough to give her. She takes great pride in her work.

Laura was great . She showed up even after having car problems on a rainy day and was on time. She accommodated my schedule, I requested a Saturday and she was open to coming. My house was clean and I appreciate the work. I will consider on a regular monthly basis.

We have 6 guys living in a house (used to be 8) and the bathrooms hadn't been professionally cleaned in years. The cleaners set up an appointment quickly with us, showed up promptly and within 4 hours everything looked like new. We seriously thought our stair banisters, toilets and showers were too far gone but they brought them back to looking great. They even cleaned the window blinds which were very dusty. Would recommend! Thank you! (Photos are before and after of the bathroom, I think you can tell which are which)

They did a great job, and were very professional. We hired them to clean the house that we moved out of, and we would use them again. I would recommend setting up an appointment for a quote in person ahead of time so that you have an accurate idea of what you need.

This company contacted me via Thumbtack because I filled out information for a Move Out cleaning, if you are looking for a Move Out cleaning you know what it entails. I was originally quoted 280. I called around and found a woman who does it for 150. This company then sent me a message saying they quoted me wrong any they would charge 165. In my haste and due to the stress of moving I didn't fully read the UPDATED Quote. I went with this company over the 150 due to their availability. On the morning of my appt I received a a text from Mia the woman who was cleaning my house indicating she needed to talk to me. In our conversation she informed me that the office person who gave me the quote was incorrect and a Move Out cleaning would actually be more like 340 not 280 and not 165 but 340! More than double what I could have paid somewhere else. I was really upset. I couldn't get over the fact that they waited until the morning not even an hour prior to my appt to get in touch with me and tell me the price was wrong. I felt like it was a bait and switch and I told her not to come. She repeatedly said "but we are already on our way" I felt stuck since I needed to have my house cleaned and no longer had the luxury of time. I told her I only had 250. She said they would do "the best they could for that price". Bottom line. They cleaned my bathroom very well and did a decent job on the rest of the house. I moved into a bigger home and realize I need to have a company to clean regularly but would not use this company again.

They are not professional. They have no idea what a deep cleaning means. Would not recommend them to anyone to use. They are expensive and didn’t clean several areas in the house. They also used an abrasive sponge/ source on our stainless steel refrigerator and scratched it all over. I’ve been in contact wit them since the day they cleaned and they have lied and bs’d the whole time. Last night they wanted to send a technician out at 6am this morning! I said we could do after 7am and within minutes the cancelled. We felt that they were running around the bush and was trying to soothe us until the first 7 days pass! Do not hire them!!!

Buzzy Bee never started the job because of their very poor communication. The first time we scheduled, they never showed up. When I called Daniel he said he sent a txt message to reschedule to later that day. So we rescheduled for a different day. The second visit, someone shows up to the house, takes a look, and says she’ll be right back with the crew and supplies. But she never returned! No call. No follow up. Just left us hanging without a word. No one answered our phone calls. Finally we were able to reach Daniel by text who says “We slotted the cleaning today with 3 people to take 2-3 hours. The amount of work required would have them there 5-6 hours. I think there was a miscommunication.” There wasn’t a miscommunication. There was NO communication. You can’t just show up, say you’re return in a bit and then never come back. Who does that?! Why not just let us know what’s going on? Do not do business with them. What a waste of time.
