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.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a house cleaner when social distancing?

If you hire a house cleaner to clean the inside of your home, do not make physical contact. Stay at least 6 feet apart at all times, sanitize any surfaces after cleaning and wash your hands thoroughly. Exchange all payments digitally instead of with cash. When contacting a house cleaner, put a plan in place to ensure everyone's safety.

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.

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.

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.

AH-MAZE-ING!! I hired Thais for a deep/spring cleaning. There are items in my house that, after Thais got her magic hands on them, are cleaner than they were when I bought them!! She says she “isn’t fast.” That’s not true, she’s a machine, a very thorough machine! She was in my 3 bedroom house for 11 hours! She moves every item, doesn’t just vacuum, dust or wipe around it, but actually picks it up, wipes/dusts the item, the surface below the item, and then replaces the piece. My walls, windows, baseboards, moldings, all sparkling clean. It’s been 4 days since she was here and the house still smells fresh and clean. I can’t wait to have Thais clean our place regularly.

I highly recommend Nany’s cleaning services! I did not expect the caliber of clean for my move out cleaning to prep my house for sale. Nany was on time, did work that I was never able to figure out how to do and was competitively priced. I will be using her services again for all future needs.

Did a very thorough job with all the extra touches that make having your house cleaned way more special than the chore it may be for you or the rest of your household to do.

Just a normal cleaning company. Wasn’t every really on time which as a business owner was very unsettling but the house was clean even though there was something always not done. I think a little too expensive for the quality you receive. Would have rated 2.5 out of 5 for a full average.

I needed a move-in clean for our place and I liked the responsiveness I received. I had to change dates and they were flexible. For the areas that were cleaned - I am happy but I still had much cleaning to do after. When asked about the quality I did state I wasn't happy and they gladly came back. However I did not meet in person because I had COVID at the time. They still missed many areas - just a few pictures below. Trim, inside washer & dryer, inside windows etc. I cannot say they have great attention to detail. Which I believe is important in a cleaning service. I'm not sure if they treated a move in clean like a normal house cleaning which isn't the service I asked for.

Chelsea did a Superb job. She responded back to me immediately. She took her time with the apartment I’m moving into. I needed it done asap, and she came the next day. It smells amazingly awesome, and Very Clean. She took her time to do the walk through in both apartments for move out, and move in. She has a wonderful attitude. I’m very happy I chose Helping Hands. I will definitely recommend her to anyone that needs their house cleaned. Thank you so much Chelsea. 🙂

Underwhelmed is how I would describe my first time using this service. Don’t get me wrong things were cleaned and my house smells like cleaner. The oven and toilets are spotless - that’s where the compliments end. There was no dusting done- all my radiators still have dust, surfaces are dusty, my spare room looks like it wasn’t even touched, they didn’t put anything back where it was supposed to go on my bathroom sink. It feels rushed and no attention to detail. Will definitely be look elsewhere.

Ken was quick to respond, services were by the job not the hour, was super nice and professional, and took pride in his work. As a woman, he provided a criminal background check and required residents to be present during first clean in order to become acclimated to eachother and his work vs. clients expectations.... I would use ken again. My house def needed attention and would like to maintain an as needed relationship.
