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.

Best experience I ever had with a cleaning service. He was polite hardworking and trustworthy. My husband is in law enforcement and met him and trusted him so much he left his family with him, when he went out. Very trustworthy!!! My house was spotless when he left. He was very professional and we would hire him to do ongoing cleaning for us. Very professional, he cleaned my house for hours and his price was extremely fair.

This was a far call from a deep clean. I spent two days cleaning my own house after they left even after they came back a second time because the first time was so bad . They didn’t clean the cabinets in my kichen, the left blinds un-cleaned and full of dust in two areas, I found cobwebs in the window top sills meanwhile I payed extra for windows. Dust and dirt under my baseboard heating . They never took the light fixtures down to clean them they were caked in dirt and dust. I also payed for the cleaning of a two bathroom home and they only cleaned one granted that was because when they came I had a contractor working in the other bathroom but Lemos told me there goal was to make me happy and they would come back and finish the clean after the guys left when I messaged them I got no response after I payed them . I had construction done in my house and was moving in, I hired cleaners so on the day of the move I could just move right in and unpack instead I had to clean the house properly for the first two days I was here even though I payed them….. Very Disappointing..

My husband and I had been looking for a company to come and clean the house on a regular basis and finally contacted Commercial Clean after reviewing rough quotes, reviews, and # of times hired on Thumbtack. Stephanie came to the house for a consult and walked through the house with me. Stephanie was very friendly and extremely professional. She quickly provided a quote for the different services they provide. We were able to pick out a custom package that fit our needs which made it a lot easier to decide on moving forward or not. Stephanie and her crew came yesterday to do an initial deep clean before starting the biweekly schedule. We couldn't be more impressed! The level of detail was above and beyond any other cleaning service we've used in the past. We look forward to working with Stephanie and the Commercial Clean crew moving forward. Thank you for providing honest, reliable and impeccable service!

They started out cleaning for 2 hrs. I paid them 25.00 an hr. As quoted. All of a sudden they sent a letter that prices are going up to 30.00 an hr....which was fine but they came to clean and ran through the house in 45 min and expect me to pay the beginning the cleaning was great and then they go through so fast they tend to break things and chip things....if anyone has this service I wish you luck. Terrible....

They were great! I needed my Grandmothers new house cleaned before she moved in, and the previous owners did not take the greatest care of it and there was an odor. The ladies showed up on time, cleaned thoroughly, improved the smell and really worked their butts off and stayed until the job was done. A great value for the time and effort that was put forth. I am very happy with the results and my Grandmother plans to have them come for a monthly cleaning now.

We have used Commercial Clean for two months. The first cleaning did not go well. There were areas completely missed by the crew. Stephanie (the owner) handled it very well. She came by the house to take a look and was very apologetic about the job her crew did. She had them come back the next day to finish the job and she threw in a free carpet cleaning. We have since used them again and this month's cleaning had no issues. I would recommend their services, but they're not perfect.

I was skeptical about hiring another cleaning service due to past disappointments. Ana was understanding to that and stood behind her work. When i got home i was in awe!! The home was literally sparkling clean. I’ve never seen my faucets so shiny! She paid attention to detail from making a cute bow out of my paper towels and tissue rolls. She organized the inside of my cabinets in the bathroom and under the kitchen sink. She even made my throw blankets look like bows! I was very happy with her work and will be inviting her over to hook my house up again!! Thanks so much Ana!!
