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.

Verena is a fantastic house cleaner. She spent 3 hours cleaning my condo and I was very happy with the results. She is super kind and trustworthy. She is coming back in 3 weeks to clean my condo again. I would definitely recommend hiring her as your house cleaner.

Marisol is the first cleaner we've had that doesn't require cleaning before she shows up. No matter the state of our house, everything is clean and organized when she is done.

I recently had my house cleaned for the first time by JD Cleaning. I will be hiring Jessica for regular monthly cleanings as a result. Jessica was easy to communicate with and the cleaning service was performed at the detail promised. I recommend JD Cleaning Services.

Exceptional cleaning!!!! Never had anyone better. Arling and her sister cleaned my house so great it actually shined. They were very thorough and cleaned in places I’d never thought of cleaning. I will use them now twice a month! Highly recommend.

If I could give Elizabeth ten stars I would. Her work ethic, her attention to detail, and her openess to our desires made for the best cleaning service we've ever hired. She got tiles cleaned in the bathroom we didn't believe could be cleaned. Besides mopping the floors she got down and scrubbed parts. Besides cleaning the windows and dusting she wiped down the walls. The house looked immaculate. We would definitely hire her again and recommend her to anyone looking to have their house cleaned for a very reasonable price.

Cleaned out a new construction 4,800 square foot house and did an amazing job. Very detailed cleaning and very easy to work with. Will definitely be using your services again if I have projects in that area.

I'm so glad I found them! Lucy came and introduced me to my designated cleaner and she did the first cleaning today. The house smells so good and she did so much more than what I expected. I hope they get many customers and I'll definitely spread the word because they deserve it.

Raquel and her team did an outstanding job cleaning my home. Raquel responded within minutes to my initial inquiry and was able to accommodate me the same week. Raquel and her team arrived on time, and cleaned the house thoroughly from top to bottom. Her attention to detail was amazing and I could not be any happier with her work. We have 2 dogs and a cat who she was able to work around. We are so pleased with her work that we have already booked her for another cleaning in 2 weeks. I highly recommend Raquel’s cleaning service to anyone who is looking for help.

The first time they did the work I would give them five stars. But they contacted me two weeks ago when I hadn't contacted them as a response and said they could come clean the house. I was happy for them to do that. They set a date and time. We put things aside to let them in. But they never showed. When I contacted them about not showing up, they said I never gave them my address. They never asked. I assumed they already had it since they had worked here before, had contacted me, and promised to be here. I didn't trust if it was then someone fake. But it was JD Cleaners, and although they did a wonderful job before, I don't think I would trust them to come again.

She negotiated a price with me and then stopped showing up. She came twice. Then she made an excuse that her kid was sick, then her car broke down and then the third time nothing. And she’ll tell me a time she’s coming and not show up until I text and call her multiple times. Then she either gives me an excuse or rescheduled. The last time she was supposed to come 9am and I didn’t hear from her until 10am after I reached out multiple times. She then responded and said the price she negotiated wasn’t high enough and she couldn’t come to clean my house anymore. She cancelled my services without any discussion or any prior communication. I would not recommend her.

Cris contacted me with a quote via message through the site. I had not yet responded when they messaged again and offered to come out and see the job to give a better estimate. I agreed and said that was perfect because I also am looking at another company so I'd have time to check out both, and we set a date. Cris then asked me about square footage, to which I responded with an answer of the area size and stated if they wanted to drive by the house before we meet and get an idea they were welcome to do that, but it wouldn't be the entire house so that might not help. They misunderstood it to mean come by to see the inside any time, despite having just set an appointment. When I clarified what I meant and that I work 6 days a week so I don't have that availability, Cris told me gas prices were too high to drive out here several times for me to go with a different company and I could just send pictures or a video and they will give me an estimate, "this is why we quote on the app." To be clear: Cris reached out to offer and schedule an appointment with me to come see my home prior to cleaning and give a different quote than what was given in the app. I neither questioned the quoted price nor asked for a different one, nor did I request they come see the job first before agreeing to a price. I was up front about looking at another company as well, because that is the intention of this app's service. Being put off by the rude tone and clear issue with communication, I said no thank you I'll keep looking. The response I got was Cris "liking" my message. Not sure if this is the owner, maybe they just aren't a morning person, perhaps the context of texting is too obscure for their general interpretation, I'm not sure. However, after this snapshot of interaction, I wound not say "oh I heard about this people-oriented company with great customer service" and then drop this name.
