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.

I live in an old house that’s in the process of being remolded and it’s a challenge to keep clean. Mr. Pascal and his business partner were prompt, worked hard and quietly and did a fantastic job. The house looked and smelled clean and new.

I must say that the cleaning of the house was thoroughly and professionally done. The entire house still smells so pleasant and refreshing! Looking forward to using them again soon!

Spotless cleaning services did an amazing job deep cleaning our new house that we just moved into. Because of all the construction and renovation work, the house was super dirty and had a lot of dust. Spotless cleaning, true to its name, left everything spotless! We can finally breathe and enjoy our new home! They did an incredible job with all the windows (all 48 of them!), floors, surfaces, fridge, etc. All of our expectations were exceeded. We recommended Jessica’s Spotless Cleaning Services with our utmost enthusiasm!

Lourdes did an amazing job cleaning a third floor apartment for us after a tenant moved out. She took special care of details like wiping down window seals and cabinets and had the place smelling amazing. She also cleaned our common areas and stair cases of our three family house.

I’m so thankful for Cris and her crew. They did a such a great job and were so hardworking. My house was so clean and smelt amazing. I have a high traffic area where my two dogs are constantly lingering at, and they got it spotless. No pet dander and they got my walls back clean and white lol. I was impressed. Even my 13 year old son was smiling from ear to ear and thanking the crew for cleaning his room and the house. He said wow it looks like we just moved it lol. Also, I loved that Cris and her crew were punctual, pleasant , professional and hardworking. Thanks again , we appreciate it🙏🏾

First of all, Melanie is a gem. She was pleasant, funny, and kind! For that alone she gets five stars but her cleaning ability is just as good. Already talking to family member about booking her for a job at their house. Thanks Melanie and Ray!

I have mixed feelings about working with Details house cleaning. I had an initial date/time scheduled which I had to reschedule for two days later because of a sink problem that needed to be fixed. On the day that they were supposed to show, they did not. I rescheduled again and on that day, I received a call asking if they could come later. So punctuality and respect for my time was not present. At the end of the day the work done cost 100$ over the estimate on the site. I paid her what she thought was fair, but have decided not to use this company again. I blame myself for not asking for a price upfront. I assumed that I would pay no more than what was listed because my apt is a studio and I see representations of her work showing that she charged 320 for full house cleaning. At the end of the day, I wish them the best, I just can't afford a bait and switch. ETA: I sent Flavia and her team pics of my home after I got home and reviewed her work. I was extremely disappointed and was clear about this in my response. I don't have time or energy for a feud, but I will add that her defense is "your house was dirty": I hired a house cleaner for a deep clean for precisely that reason. Buyer beware with this one. It was honestly very apparently unclean when I arrived home. I have requested a partial refund for the overage charged. I'm going to have to pay another team to come in and do the work properly.

Nancy and her friend were here on time (actually a few minutes early which was nice!) They were super fast and efficient and our house is sparkling clean. They brought their own cleaning supplies which was convenient for us. We have pets and had hair and fur everywhere so when they left it was like a brand new place. We just showed them what rooms and areas we wanted done and they stuck to those locations. I would definitely use her again.
