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.

We first hired Dr. House, LLC to do a basic cleaning of our house, but they did way more than that. They cleaned the blinds, helped with the laundry, and basically did everything they could to make our house sparkle. They take pride in their work, and it shows. They are helpful, friendly, and professional. They exceeded our expectations and we are very happy we found them.

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.

I just bought a house that was a foreclosure, so it needed quite a bit of deep cleaning before we could move in. Kelly and her mom were wonderful! They came over quickly and spent a long time making sure every item in the house was a clean as could be. They were very thorough and went above and beyond what was asked. I would recommend them for any type of cleaning job!

"The Riley's did a wonderful job cleaning my house. I am very excited I found them and that they have lived up to my expectations. I decided to hire a home cleaner because I am in school full-time and work full-time. It was great to come home after a 13 hour work day to a sparkling clean house. I was actually able to spend worry free time with my daughter. I am very happy with my decision and look forward to having the Riley's come back on a regular basis."

Shannon was amazing, so thorough and knowledgeable. She deep cleaned my whole house, got into nooks and crannies I wouldn’t have even thought of and had tips and tricks to clean even the toughest grime. 10/10, would use again (in fact I’ve already booked the next appointment!)

100% recommend Shonda to help you with housekeeping needs! I had just moved in, and needed a thorough, deep cleaning before my moving truck got here! Shonda cleaned everything, every surface, with care and attention. She listened carefully about what I was hoping to accomplish and then made it happen! The house is sparkling now! She worked hard and got it all done! Her help was worth every dollar, and a Godsend. 5 stars!

Shannon is amazing to work with. I can’t 100% speak to the quality of her work just yet (she did a pre move-in cleaning for my fiancé and me, so we haven’t been to the house to check it out) however, I have no doubts that she did a fantastic job! Shannon was incredibly responsive, messaging me back within minutes of my inquiry, and made sure to communicate with me leading up to/on the day of the cleaning. She was an absolute pleasure to work with, and I can’t wait to walk into my shiny new home!

Jasmine and Tyson did an AMAZING job on my 3/2 apartment. I share this apartment with 2 other girls (but it is more comparable to a fraternity house) and it hasn’t been cleaned in years! They fixed up the living space, each bathroom and bedroom from top to bottom for a very low price and fast! I love coming home now! Thanks guys!

I couldnt’t be happier with the work they do. I had a bad experience with a different cleaning company and was a little skeptical on hiring another one, but from day one I have been impressed with the job that All About That Shine does. I am so happy with them that I also hired them to take care of my mother-in-laws house. We are both happy customers. All my expectations are met.
