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.

Marjee and Team are amazing! They got my house clean and prepped for putting on the market. She helped me at the last minute when I needed a little extra cleaning and she was thoughtful and professional throughout the whole project! I would hire her again in a minute (except that she did such a great job that the house sold immediately).

Rosenda is very professional and thorough. I have had a hard time finding good cleaners, as I did it myself for 15 years, and I know what a clean house is. I'm delighted to have found someone who does a excellent job at a very good price. She's easy to communicate with and prompt.

Although they arrived late, they did a great job and took their time with each and every room in my house. They worked very quickly and thoroughly for the whole hour and 15 minutes that they were here. They left the house looking spotless and we only paid $100 for the whole service. I would highly recommend this cleaning service and will definitely be using them again!

Wow, what a great team! They squeezed me in for a deep clean before listing the house. What they did in 3 hours would have taken me two days. Will definitely be using them again soon!

Andrea did an excellent job! Contacted her incredibly last minute for a move out clean of my apartment after another service cancelled on me, and she was able to complete the work for me the same afternoon—amazing! She was very responsive and professional. The house looks great and everything has been thoroughly cleaned. She did an especially great job cleaning our very dirty fridge and sink—I’m impressed!! I definitely recommend her!

Melodia and I agreed to a price less than initially quoted so long as I arranged to have the house "pretty well picked up ahead of time", which is exactly what I did and do regardless. When the cleaners arrived they expressed to my husband something about us being on a budget. The cleaning provided literally looked like a 'budget' cleaning. We agreed to a certain price for services, and I expected 100% effort, but that is not what I received.

Eva and her crew did an excellent job on my move out clean. She arrived with extra people (I was quoted 2-3 people, but she came with 4) and they worked tirelessly until the house was spotless. I highly recommend this company.

I called on short notice, and Adriana's Cleaning did a great job with everything from dusting to vacuuming. It was also much more affordable than many other services. I was very grateful to have someone come so quickly and do such a nice job with the house.

Cindy and her helper Gina provided excellent service over a 2-day move out, clean-up process. Not only are they hard-working, professional cleaners, but they also helped me organize and move my belongings from one house to another. My lack of prep and the general chaos of moving did not bother them at all. Best of all, Cindy and Gina are very nice people who were a joy to work with. I highly recommend Cindy and her team!

We reached out the week before we were moving out and they made room to take on our home to clean it up after we moved out. What a time saver and stress reliever for us. I was super grateful they were able to do it. The house looked incredible and our landlord was very happy with how it looked when we left! Thanks so much!

Mike and Amber were a pleasure to work with. They were as concerned about the thoroughness and quality of their work as I was. As it turns out, there was no need for concern on my part. I was impressed with their attention to detail. They did a great job and worked extremely hard. The outcome was a very clean house and a very pleased customer. I will continue to work with them and highly recommend them to anyone else in need of a great housecleaning team.

I don't like to complain about people. I understand that, in general, we all try to do our job, or what we know how to do. This service was not what I expected, but perhaps my expectations are high. I must also say that I think Camila did better than her partner. Pros: -On time, super fast, luckily nothing broke, they have good cleaning tools, quiet and respectful. Cons: -Without paying attention to detail, the dust stayed where it was, rough to move things. If your house is unoccupied or you has nothing, maybe it could work. If you're not picky about dust, maybe it could work. At the end of the service, the bathroom, the windows, the mat and the kitchen accessories in general are clean. The library, desk, shelves and small accessories were not cleaned or it was done very poorly. The balcony was not swept or vacuumed. Obviously, the apartment is cleaner than it was, but I will need someone to clean it again in less than a week. Sorry about this, but I think criticism allows people to take action and improve. Good luck and despite all thanks.

The cleaners were supposed to show up at Noon, so I took a few hours off work to meet them at my house. At 12:23, I called them. The guy on the phone seemed confused and said that he was looking into it and will call me back in 5min. Well, I never got the call back. At 12:35 and 12:43, I called and no answer. I then get a message on Thumbtack stating that the car broke down and they won't make it. I understand things like this happen. My bad review is around the very poor communication and the frustrations around them not following my preferences of communication method. Since they did not show up, it is not a review of their ability to clean.
