Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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?

What is included in a deep house cleaning vs. a basic house cleaning?

A basic house cleaning typically includes tasks like carpet cleaning, wiping countertops, taking out the trash, doing the laundry and washing dishes. A deep house cleaning is a much more involved process, where all aspects of the home are given full attention for a cleanout. In a deep house cleaning, the cleaners will wet-wipe everything from door frames to light switch plates, making sure to also clean walls, windows, air vents, ceiling fans, furniture and more.

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 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.

How do I prepare for a house cleaner?

There are several things you can do in preparation for a house cleaning to improve the efficiency and quality of the job. If you’re unfamiliar with a cleaning service, hiding and locking away any obvious valuables lying around can offer great peace of mind.

Depending on the preference of the cleaner, you may need to lock up your pets before the cleaners arrive. Washing dishes and decluttering the house allows a house cleaner to do their job more effectively. And leaving special notes for the cleaners about certain areas in your home that need attention is also helpful.

Ask house cleaners near you about their tips to help you prepare for their services. 

How much should you tip maids or cleaning services?

Tipping between 15 and 20 percent is considered an appropriate tip for maids and house cleaners — just as it would with a barber, food delivery driver or taxi operator. During the holidays, you might want to consider tipping a bit more. 

It’s important to note that some housekeeping and maid services might include a tip within the service fee, which should be explained to you in the service contract. Talk to house cleaners in your area to find out what's included in their fees.

I highly recommend Lourdes Lazo for House Cleaning. When she said "I clean with excellence" she was not kidding! I was amazed how beautiful she left my house and what a lovely person she was to work with. She cleaned with such detail and care. I've worked with many House Cleaning services and this is the first time I am 150% satisfied. I almost don't want to share her, but I highly recommend her and will definitely be using her services again. Thank you Lourdes!

I've worked with Carolina multiple times with Deep Cleans and Standard cleans and even move in clean. She goes above and beyond each time and it's always a pleasure working with her. I highly recommend reaching out to Carolina if you are looking for house cleaning.

We’re very prompt with their ability to come clean our house on such a short notice! With 4 young kids and both of us working full time our schedules can get crazy and we appreciated their ability to work with us to get our house cleaned without interrupting our schedules! Will definitely have them back again and would recommend them to anyone looking for a deep clean! Thank you!

I needed my house cleaned last minute and Pop Up Cleaning services came to the rescue. They left my house looking amazing! They spoke perfect English which was a huge plus for me as I was able to communicate on what I needed done. I was unable to be in the home during the cleaning and they were completely trustworthy and thorough. I will definitely be using them in the future for both of my homes! Thank you!

They take their time to clean well. The house also does not smell toxic when they are done - we pointed out to them not to use harsh stuff. We are a family of asthmatics and get sick with strong cleaning products like too much fabuloso. Very appreciated - also… Spanish only.

Carla just started cleaning my father's house. She shows great respect and compassion as well as doing a very thorough job cleaning his home. I look forward to Carla continuing to work there and having a very positive and pleasant experience going forward. Her service is great and her professionalism is top notch.

I had reached out for my Daughter’s house to be cleaned as a Mother’s Day gift and Bright & Breezy cleanings responded very quickly and was extremely helpful since I live in another state. She was able and willing to work with me and my daughter to figure out a time that worked best for them both! Very friendly and her prices are extremely reasonable.

Absolutely the BEST, HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!!!!So much more than just a “cleaning service”. Orissa poured her heart and soul into making my house a place where I actually feel good and happy coming home to again. They were extremely detailed, quick to respond, answered all of my questions prior to booking them, listened to what I needed, FaceTimed me prior to my booking so I can show them exactly what I needed, made me feel comfortable even though I was embarrassed because of how bad my house was, no hidden fees (the price they gave was exactly what it came out to be without any surprises in the end), and they just made my vision come true. I needed a GOOD deep cleaning, as well as, decluttering and organizing of my house and they were able to fulfill all of my needs and then some. I honestly didn’t think it was possible for anyone to be able to complete all of this work in one day and they made it happen without cutting any corners or slacking in any part of my house, as well as, made it SOOO affordable for me despite the big job they had in front of them. They took their time from the minute they arrived in the morning and only left in the evening when they were completely done. Thank you so much for everything that you did. This was so much more than just a cleaning for me, you honestly brought back love into my home again and there is no price tag on that. You definitely got a repeat customer here 😊
Terry F.
Excellent job! She finished a little later than quoted but not an issue at all worked out better for me! She did a move out cleaning for my property and it was a great job!! Fridge and oven looks brand new!!!! And it was terrible before. U could smell how good the house smelled from stepping out of the car in the driveway. I highly recommend her! Couldn't have got better service else where thanks a million!!
