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.

I am throwing a big family party this weekend and needed my messy house to be cleaned. I contacted Beautiful Day Cleaning on Monday, and they were at my house on Wednesday morning to clean. Nivia and her mom were the nicest people you want to trust with cleaning your house. They did a tremendous job of getting my house in order for my party, and now I will have them come on a bi-weekly basis to clean my house. Very pleased with Beautiful Day Cleaning with the quality of their work, their promptness in doing the job, and their alll around professionalism.

Ken is a meticulous, vibrant, Romainian one man army who can clean the heck out of your house. He knows his work and CARES and takes great PRIDE in it and it shows. He is a wonderful man! For me Ken has cleaned out one house and I hired him for another house. I will probably hire him do a third house.

Ken communicated very well leading up to the cleaning. He is personable yet attentive to the job. His cleaning is great. He is thorough and looks for the final ok before being done. The house was very clean, smelled clean, and best of all best all other thumbtack quotes by $60+. Hiring him again next month for another job.

I closed on my house late so I needed someone last minute to clean the house. Jessica was quick to respond and squeezed me in. They did a great job and even swept my basement and got the leaves out of my garage. I definitely will be using her again.

My shedule is sometimes difficult but Ken was able to accommodate me. He was prompt, and did a wonderful job cleaning the house. He made sure that I was happy with each room. I would highly recommend him to all.

Fernando was wonderful to work with. Even though injured, he came to the house so he could walk through and see what needed to be done when he could have just called to say he couldn't make it that day. He did a wonderful job with carpets, tile, cleaning out the fridge etc. My house had elderly animals in it, and it smelled so much better afterwards. I would definitely recommend his services.

Thais offers a phenomenal cleaning service. I am a first time Thumbtack user and she worked tireless in bringing my house back to its original beauty. She loves cleaning and offers a great value in the quality of work that she provides while having a reasonable price. I am going to refer her to my friends in the area. She showed up on time and worked no-stop. I was fatigued watching her continuously work. She is also a very nice person. Thanks again Thais.

I explained the details of my home and kept saying "team" and she said it was only her that was coming. Started in the upstairs bathroom and then told my husband she had to go back and get more cleaning supplies and more people because the job was bigger than she thought because she never came to the house to take a look at it. She told my husband she would come back later and she never did. I thumbtacked her back to find out why she quit the job and she said there was a lot of "cat poop" on the floor and she would have to charge more. I told her about our cat situation and she didn't seem to care at the time of hiring her. I would not hire her without having her take a look at the job. Personally I think she is a "one woman show."
