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. 

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. 

When viewing house cleaners on Thumbtack, you might see a Top Pro badge. This indicates that the service is one of the most popular and highly-rated professionals using the platform.

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.

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.

Vania was a pleasure to work with. She was available exactly when I needed her, which was a last minute inquiry. 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. I will now use her service on a biweekly basis.

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.

Noll and void the comment from above I feel like she gave me no reason to quit both jobs wich in return screwed me this week with SHORT NOTICE!!! Very unprofessional also I feel she didn't clean well like the first visit not dusting properly and my house never smelled clean. I also came to her with this situation and it just got worse, but I was willing to work with her, but obviously somewhere this didn't work out. NOT COOL!!!!
