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.

Mary (Maria) just gave my house one of the best cleans of the decade. I have had help with cleaning for many years (and cities and states and houses). Most (almost all) are good at swiping the surfaces, especially in the kitchen and bath. Maria CLEANS!! I have 2 cats and a dog and actively live and cook in my house. She left it spotless! Real cleaning. I have her scheduled to return again in two weeks. IF YOU ARE IN GAINESVILLE, contact Mary's cleaning service. She can serve us better in Gainesville if she has a few clients to schedule in the same day . . .because she drives quite a ways to get here.

V Services, Richard and Monique did a fantastic job cleaning our house for move-in. It had been a rental, and vacant for a while. They were very punctual, came exactly when they said they would. Took two hours and did an outstanding job. We can move in now with great peace of mind that the house has been thoroughly cleaned top to bottom. I positively recommend them.

I’ve been looking for so many years for a cleaning service that the value of work was so worth the price. I will be using them on a monthly basis going forward.

Mrs. Glass quoted one price and then after beginning the job told me that it was going to cost almost twice as much. However, I was willing to pay as she explained that the house needed a more thorough cleaning than what she had expected. We negotiated a new price that was supposed to include the entire home. She mentioned several times how unclean my house was and I could hear her and her husband discussing it while they were cleaning. My children could also hear them talking to each other about how "bad" it was. After they left, I found that they had not cleaned different areas of the the bedrooms and underneath the beds had not been cleaned, swept, or mopped. She later sent me an email explaining again why she had charged me more because my house was so much "worse and unclean" than what she had expected. I would not recommended this individual to anyone as to when I responded to her email, she went further to tell how she was sick the next day because she thought about how "filthy my home was and about what she had had to clean up." I was not recommend this house cleaning service to anyone!

Schirley and her partner did an incredible job deep cleaning my house. Schirley was very responsive and easy to work with; she accommodated my hectic schedule. This is the cleanest my house has been and the attention to detail (including sweeping my porch and taking out the trash) was incredible. I will definitely be hiring them again!

I would definitely not use nor recommend this company to anyone. I have our conversation provided after I told her I didn’t want the house cleaned weekly by their company after a disappointing deep cleaning. The owner saw the condition our house was in before providing an estimate, I expressed how much help we needed after our household practically feel apart. She told me they would help clean the toys off the floors and would make sure the dishes in the sink were done. The hope was to get them to do a good deep cleaning then have weekly maintenance. I told the owner that I would have the dishes cleaned up a little bit prior to the scheduled appointment that was originally the following week. However, that night she texted me explaining she had a cancellation for the following day. Not quite sure what was expected of me, but I did help clean up while they were there. Anyways, I just feel the response was incredibly unprofessional and now wanted to share my experience.
