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.

Elisia was on time, professional and just an all-around nice person. She did a great job cleaning our 3 bedroom house, and you can tell that she takes pride in her business. Hoping to have her come back for monthly cleanings.

Mariana was so communicative prior to visit and upon arrival. Super team of workers that took a very dirty house we are moving from to listing clean ! My real estate agent will be wowed at the transformation! Fingers crossed on buyers too! Highly recommend All Cleaning!!’

Mari worked really hard along with her associate at cleaning this very dirty home we rented. It is the kind of home you could not see the dirt that well until you started cleaning and then the more we cleaned, the more I found out how filthy this house was - apparently the previous owner never cleaned much in 50 years. So the two ladies did a very good job for what they had to tackle.

Mary is very easy to work with. We just did some renovations and did a post construction cleaning. She hit all the areas and got the house ready for move in. Would recommend and use again.

Cida and Janine are wonderful! With three ladies, they cleaned our house efficiently and beautifully. We have about 2800sq ft and hardwood floors were left spotless, bathrooms shined and my kitchen, which we use multiple times a day, is cleaned to perfection. The ladies are very friendly and trustworthy. There's no doubt we will continue to hire them!

Rachida reached out promptly on my request. Was very professional, on time - even early :), and I could not be happier with the results of her thorough cleaning. It makes sense to me that she has so many wonderful reviews! Was a great feeling to come home to a super clean and neat house after a long week at work. Will definitely be using her again!

The women who came worked quickly and did a beautiful job. They left my house very clean and this service is very affordable. The owner worked with me when I had availability issues and was very flexible. I will use this service again.

I found Marisol on Thumback and I couldn’t be happier. I was in a bind and overextended myself again. I was moving in once week and saw that was not going to be able to handle move, work and cleaning old townhouse for the walk through with the landlord. I contacted Marisol 3/25/15 and she was about to accommodate my need for 3/30/15. I must be honest I am a poor domestic diva, I do basic surface cleaning and run the vacuum. Marisol came in and cleaned like a champ. I had a two bedroom, 1 ½ bath and finished basement townhouse. In about2 ½ hours the place was sparkling. Bathrooms, refrigerator and floors were immaculate. My former landlord was thrilled and stated “it looks better than I ever seen a rental returned”. Marisol is friendly, prompt, professional. She is one of the best… Marisol is so awesome that I have hired her for every other week in my new home. If you are looking for the best with you house cleaning needs look no further...
