Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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?

What is included in a deep house cleaning vs. a basic house cleaning?

A basic house cleaning typically includes tasks like carpet cleaning, wiping countertops, taking out the trash, doing the laundry and washing dishes. A deep house cleaning is a much more involved process, where all aspects of the home are given full attention for a cleanout. In a deep house cleaning, the cleaners will wet-wipe everything from door frames to light switch plates, making sure to also clean walls, windows, air vents, ceiling fans, furniture and more.

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.

How long does it take to clean a house professionally?

Generally, getting your house cleaned professionally can take several hours. The time it takes for house cleaners to complete their job depends on the size of your home, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms you have, the type of service you require and the condition of your house. It also might depend on how many employees are cleaning and the supplies they are using. If you get recurring cleaning services, the first visit might take a bit longer than the subsequent visits. 

When choosing the best house cleaner for you, ask for an estimate about how long their services will take.

How much is a house cleaning?

The national average cost for house cleaning ranges between $25 and $50 per hour, per cleaner. However, the cost of house cleaning services near you might be different.

House cleaning prices vary based on how many square feet your home is, how dirty your house gets and how often the cleaning service comes. And, prices can be lower in areas with a lower cost of living, higher in big cities or affluent regions.

Some companies charge a set amount — such as 5 cents — per square foot, with a minimum amount, such as $100. You may save money by increasing the frequency of your house cleaning visits. Often a company will charge you less per cleaning when you schedule more cleanings per month. The cost advantage rewards your loyalty, and also reflects the fact that more frequent cleanings make it easier to maintain a high level of cleanliness in your home. A housecleaning service may charge more for the first visit or for one-time services than for recurring cleanings.

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.

How do I prepare for a house cleaner?

There are several things you can do in preparation for a house cleaning to improve the efficiency and quality of the job. If you’re unfamiliar with a cleaning service, hiding and locking away any obvious valuables lying around can offer great peace of mind.

Depending on the preference of the cleaner, you may need to lock up your pets before the cleaners arrive. Washing dishes and decluttering the house allows a house cleaner to do their job more effectively. And leaving special notes for the cleaners about certain areas in your home that need attention is also helpful.

Ask house cleaners near you about their tips to help you prepare for their services. 

How much should you tip maids or cleaning services?

Tipping between 15 and 20 percent is considered an appropriate tip for maids and house cleaners — just as it would with a barber, food delivery driver or taxi operator. During the holidays, you might want to consider tipping a bit more. 

It’s important to note that some housekeeping and maid services might include a tip within the service fee, which should be explained to you in the service contract. Talk to house cleaners in your area to find out what's included in their fees.

Living up in the mountains, it is difficult to find a cleaning crew that will come to my house. This was not an issue with Cornelio's House Cleaning. The gals who came out were very kind, professional, and efficient. I requested a surface clean and they did a great job at a great value. I am looking forward to working with them, continually, in the future and I feel confident that I can trust them to come to my house without me having to be there.

Crystal Clear Cleaning did an amazing job on our home. We’ve just relocated from Austin, Texas to Golden. The house in Golden was so filthy I didn’t even want to unpack. The house looks wonderful now and is clean all the way down to the smallest detail. I’m so very thankful for them.

I contacted Julia because I needed my entire house cleaned on short notice for listing. She was quick to respond and within 24 hours, she had cleaned my house from top to bottom, including bathrooms, windows, refrigerator, oven, microwave, counters and hardwoods. She was diligent and detailed and very friendly and professional. I highly recommend her and her service!

I couldn't be happier with the work that Lisa did for me. in a house that needed to be rental ready. She asked that I send pictures of what needed to be cleaned and she responded with a very accurate, detailed and reasonable quote. She showed up on time and got started cleaning right away. Once she was done, I was blown away at how clean everything was!! What amazed me even more was that she didn't change the amount she quoted even though she was there a bit longer than planned. With that kind of work ethic a good tip was in order. If you need some deep cleaning done, don't hesitate to reach out to this lovely young lady. She won't let you down.

I booked Simply Clean for noon Friday Aug. 5. She didn't show up. I found a message on the app saying she had had a major catastrophe at the house before me. So after several texts, I rebooked for Wednesday Aug. 10, "about 1" was what she said. It's now 2 pm and again she's a no-show. I'm finished!

They did not do a quality job. they only swept the floors with a broom and mopped them with something that left streaks and foot prints showed. They said they forgot to do the baseboards. They also said they arrived at 3: but I didn’t arrive till 3:10 and they showed up after I was in the house? I meant to note the time of their arrival but other family members were already there and more showed up and I became the baby sitter. The kitchen was not touched and the bathroom was barely passable. I did not call because I left after they did and I didn’t watch over their work. She didn’t even pick up a slipper just swept around it. I told her where my vacuum was but she chose to still sweep with a broom. I ended up handing her my stick Dyson when they went upstairs she handed it back to me saying it’s dead. They only dusted a few pieces of furniture. I will not use your service again. They should be trained on how to clean! I would appreciate a refund.
