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.

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.

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 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.

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?

Maid 2 Clean has been to my house twice so far and I am very happy. Elisa is very energetic and friendly, and she and her team have a great eye for detail. My house is so fresh and clean after they leave that I never want to leave. Maid 2 Clean is very professional and communicates changes in schedule as soon as they arise. I will definitely recommend them to friends and family.

They were prompt in replying to my request for a house cleaning. Both were sisters who were very professional and hard working. Not a minute to waste and they cleaned the entire apartment very efficiently. Will hire them again.

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.

She cane to my house first at my convenience to give me a fair price for a deep cleaning. Her crew arrived as scheduled. I was very pleased with the cleaning.

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!
