Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much do house cleaners cost in DC?

You might find house cleaning services in Washington, DC, for prices as low as $75. But keep in mind this is a starting cost, and how much you’ll ultimately pay depends on several factors. The first is the size of your home. A cleaner will need to know the number of bedrooms and bathrooms to give a proper estimate, as well as whether you have pets and require any extra services like fridge cleaning, oven cleaning or laundry. Finally, regular cleaning tends to cost less than a one-time visit.

How do I choose the best house cleaning service in D.C.?

Finding the best cleaning service in Washington, D.C., requires a bit of research. Peruse highly-rated cleaners that have positive house cleaning reviews from users. Read about extra costs for items like laundry, window cleaning, and oven and fridge cleaning, and make sure that the cleaner can come as frequently as you need. Ask your prospective D.C. cleaners if they can still arrive in your home during inclement weather, such as snow or ice.  

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.

Elizabeth of Smart Cleaning was very accommodating when we had to postpone cleaning of my client's house by two weeks. I'm a realtor and the house was being prepared for market. Smart Cleaning arrived promptly and had several people working on the house at once to get everything cleaned throughout within about 2 hours. They did a good job and everything was ready in plenty of time for the staging company to get their work done right afterward. The house looks great!
