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.

R&C did an excellent job cleaning our house today. I’ve hired house cleaners in the past and knew what to expect, but R&C exceeded those expectations. They were efficient and thorough. My house is sparkling clean! I’ll definitely be using their services regularly.

Mary and her helper, Sara cleaned my house from top to bottom. Better than I could. The bathrooms were immaculate. Everything was either dusted or wiped down. She damped mop all of our wooden floors. It was so clean I didn't want to touch anything. The only word which describes Mary's House Cleaning service is superb. Mary and Sara have been cleaning my house now for nine months. The quality of her work has been extremely consistent. The house is not only clean but nicely organized - ready for a house showing. I have had several house cleaners over the years and none of them have done as good of a job or consistent with their work as Mary and Sara have been. My wife and I both look forward to going home on the days Mary cleans because the house always looks fantastic.

I needed a last-minute, next day cleaning of my house to prepare for a party. Two cleaners arrived and got right to work. They did a great job cleaning lots of space in very little time. I would use them again if needed! Great experience!

I've tried lots of cleaning services....both big companies and individuals. I was never satisfied and thought maybe I was just being too picky. Then Daniela started cleaning my house and I have not had one complaint. Every 2 weeks....always on time, respectful, trustworthy, and just excellent service. No matter what state my house is on when she gets there, I know when she leaves it's going to look great. I expect to use Alines cleaning service for a long time.

Andreza and her partner cleaned my house today. I am so happy with the way everything came out. Totally clean and perfect. She is going to be my regular house cleaner now! She speaks English very well, and she understood everything I asked her to do. We are so pleased with her work. She was even early to my home today! She gave me a great price, and went above and beyond. She did not rush, and made sure everything was perfect before leaving. Thank you Andreza! See you soon! - John

I hired these ladies to do a deep clean of my home. They worked so hard and even an hour longer than they thought, to get my house sparkly clean from top to bottom. Amazing! I definitely recommend Andresa's for anything you might need! I will be using them again!

Mary is fantastic. She has cleaned my apartment twice now and has done a great job. She leaves every surface sparkling clean and has even gone above and beyond to do laundry and organize my refrigerator! Her price is reasonable and I plan on having her clean my apartment once a month moving forward. If you are wondering whether you should go with Mary's House Cleaning, have her come by for 1 cleaning and I promise you won't use any other cleaning lady moving forward.

I am thrilled with Marisol and the quality of her work. Marisol is enthusiastic, prompt and a very talented house cleaner. I was very impressed with her willingness to help me check items off my to-do list, many that go above and beyond most cleaning services, including deep cleaning for spring and organizing closets/cupboards and more! In the last, I used other cleaning services in the area and they left me unhappy with a messy home and wishing I had done the work myself. But now I know, nothing comes close to the final product Marisol delivers! It is wonderful to walk into my home after a busy day and see it beautiful, sparkling clean, with everything in its place, even better than I could have done myself. I am very happy with my experience and will continue to book house cleaning and organization with Marisol and would 100% recommend her to friends & neighbors.

Mary is an excellent cleaning professional. She was timely, efficient and quite thorough. With a new baby on the way she left our house sparkling clean and all set for our little package to come home to a comfortable environment. We will be calling upon Mary time and time again. She is great and our family is happy we found her!

I am so glad that I found Crystal Clean Services. They did a fantastic job! To start, Andreia returned my message promptly Sunday after reviewing my cleaning request. She was very pleasant in understanding my needs via text and during the consultation at my home. The cleaning I requested was the deep clean. The team was meticulous in cleaning and removed several stains that I didn’t think would come out of the stone colored wood floor I have. My house smells wonderful Areas cleaned: Bathrooms (thoroughly) Bedrooms (changed sheets and bedding) Mopped floors (all including stairs) Cleaned wall panels Kitchen (washed dishes too) More places too Thank you again for being thorough and quality work.
Nicole M.
Rachida was great. She cleaned our home and did 2 loads of laundry. I'll hire her again and strongly recommend her. She arrived on time, asked if any special instructions were needed, and went straight to work. She is very pleasant, works quickly, is open to any suggestions and provides good service at a great price for an excellent value overall. We hadn't professionally cleaned our house in a long time, so when Rachida finished cleaning, the end result made us a happier family.

I was looking for a cleaning person. I had a cleaning girl come she had two other girl work with her and was taking my money and not cleaning they would move furniture and make it look like they cleaned well I took a lint roller and NO vacuuming was done. So I fired her and found R & C Cleaning thru this web site. She gave me references and were great one was a police officer. So I tried her today 3/24/2017 She left my house IMMACULATE she vacuumed inside my sofa, all the edges of the room moved everything, dusting was perfect my floors in the bathroom and kitchen looked so shiny. I did not have this cleaning when I had the last girls here. Great cleaning and using her every two weeks So I can live life on my weekends!!!!

I highly recommend Cristina for any of your housecleaning needs. She was available to do a deep clean of our new home in a pinch. Cristina came prepared with all her cleaning supplies and knew exactly what to do once she arrived. This was a difficult job but she approached it with ease and was extremely meticulous. We had about an inch of dust on all surfaces and she made the place sparkle. She went above and beyond to clean the whole house including floors despite numerous boxes and chaos around the home. Beyond cleaning, she helped organize our boxes for unpacking. She is an expert when it comes to housecleaning.

Very, very pleased!! My house was transformed into a clean & peaceful abode. The couple & assistant were very flexible to work me in their schedule on my tight, tight schedule. I seriously RECOMMEND them. I immediately set up my next appt! Very nice couple & trust them completely. I hardly give reviews, but they're too much of a great team, to not give one!
