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.

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.

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.

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.

How long does it take to clean a house professionally?

Generally, getting your house cleaned professionally can take several hours. The time it takes for house cleaners to complete their job depends on the size of your home, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms you have, the type of service you require and the condition of your house. It also might depend on how many employees are cleaning and the supplies they are using. If you get recurring cleaning services, the first visit might take a bit longer than the subsequent visits. 

When choosing the best house cleaner for you, ask for an estimate about how long their services will take.

How much is a house cleaning?

The national average cost for house cleaning ranges between $25 and $50 per hour, per cleaner. However, the cost of house cleaning services near you might be different.

House cleaning prices vary based on how many square feet your home is, how dirty your house gets and how often the cleaning service comes. And, prices can be lower in areas with a lower cost of living, higher in big cities or affluent regions.

Some companies charge a set amount — such as 5 cents — per square foot, with a minimum amount, such as $100. You may save money by increasing the frequency of your house cleaning visits. Often a company will charge you less per cleaning when you schedule more cleanings per month. The cost advantage rewards your loyalty, and also reflects the fact that more frequent cleanings make it easier to maintain a high level of cleanliness in your home. A housecleaning service may charge more for the first visit or for one-time services than for recurring cleanings.

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.

Brisa came to my house today for our first cleaning and I could not be happier with the results. The house is sparkling clean with an acute attention to detail. Not one corner of our house was missed! Additionally, they were very accommodating of our pets and the fact that I work from home. I was able to work while they were here, uninterrupted. I would definitely recommend Brisa to anyone that is looking for professional, high quality and affordable cleaning services!

Great Service!!!! Yesli came with her assistant on time and cleaned my house for over 7 hours with no break. They left the house so clean and organized and sparkling. I really love her work and will call her next month for service again. A very hardworking person and she deserves all the good reviews.

The team showed up a little late (traffic delay) but set straight to work. We had just bought this house and the tenants left it incredibly dirty. The cleaners worked diligently for almost 5 hours. The house looks and smells amazing! I will definitely use them again to clean the rental we are moving out of.

We had them come today for a deep clean and what will now be a biweekly clean for our house and oh my gosh was it worth every penny!! Vania responded right away and has been nothing but wonderful since. When I came home today my house was SPOTLESS! The hardwoods shining, the carpets cleaner than I’ve ever seen them and every surface clean and dusted! I consider myself a “neat freak” and they far exceeded all of my expectations! I can’t say enough great things!! Highly, highly recommend!!

Cony and her team did an outstanding job on a whole house deep cleaning in order to get my mother's home ready to go on the market. Cony and her team are very professional and easy to work with. Cony is quick to respond to your inquiry and arranged to clean the home without delay. I cannot say enough good things about their work. The house looked beautiful and spotless when they were done. The hardwood floors and woodwork looked immaculate. They cleaned every nook and cranny. I highly recommend Cony and plan to use her for regular cleaning of my own home. Her pricing is very reasonable. Our real estate agent was very impressed with the quality of Cony's work as well.

Andreza and her team did an amazing job cleaning our house from top to bottom! She was very responsive, kind and cared about being mindful of our fur-babies. My husband and I were very hesitant to get extra help with cleaning, however so happy we did and plan to continue with Andreza’s services! Highly recommend!

When your hire someone off the internet you never know who you might be hiring to come into you home. In this case we hired a wonderful hard working, honest, and extremely professional young lady who after her cleaning everything just shines. She showed up on time and doesn’t stop until her work is done. Best of all my wife who resented having a stranger come and clean her house just fell in love with her. I think we will keep her cleaning our home for a long time to come.

I am beyond happy with my cleaning!!! I have 3 cats and a very messy home and these wonderful ladies came in, did an amazing job and left my house smelling so clean! I will hire them every time. They even left cute little bows on my paper towel rolls, the bathroom is spotless! They organized my messy dresser and made everything look great. I could not be more happy! 10/10!
