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.

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.

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. 

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.

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.

I have to begin by saying...our house was beyond dusty😬. Dust to shine went above and beyond. Our house hasn’t been this clean since it was built. We do everyday cleaning but they cleaned every nook and cranny. If you want special attention and detail...hire Dust to Shine! Thank you for making my wife beyond happy!

They did an excellent job. They did a very thorough cleaning, as the house was recently purchased and very dirty when they arrived. Very hardworking and polite cleaners, I would recommend them to others.

I've just had surgery, so I needed my house cleaning, and Cerise's team did a great job. They were friendly and respectful, wearing masks and gloves in my house. Cerise was easy to communicate with, and the job was completed very soon after my request. I would definitely use this company again if I needed cleaning services in the future.

When I was searching on my application about what cleaning services I need done I included laundry and regular cleaning services. The app narrowed down to 3 different cleaning services. They asked me how many bedrooms I want cleaned, not how much square footage my house is. I signed up for one bedroom and laundry services. This company replied to me stating that they can come out and clean the very next day. They came out and said that there's too many bedrooms in my house, even though I only needed ONE bedroom cleaned and the cleaners told me that they don't do laundry. This was a complete waste of my time!!!

They are amazing! I asked them to come for a one time cleaning to get my house ready for an inspection. They were so great I asked them to come back weekly. Very reasonably priced for the quality of work they do. My house has never looked so great.

Was hired for a deep clean. They did a basic cleaning, many of the stuff that was pointed out by them saying it doesn't come out came out when I went in cleaned after. Normal bathroom and kitchen water stains. I was told they would not be cleaning the paint droplets, I told them that's fine. Totally missed one of the rooms when cleaning. The house had not furniture new carpets and new paint. 2 places I asked them to focus was bathroom and kitchen. Not unhappy with cleaning, but not satisfied either.

Monique did a great job cleaning our house. She was on time, professional and she went above and beyond with extra touches I wasn’t expecting. I would highly recommend and will definitely use again!

First impressions were amazing. We have been through 3 other cleaners before this team and we are incredibly surprised that our house could be this clean. They did little things that went above and beyond what we could have asked for. They came in and got straight to work. With past cleaners, they would spend their time chatting with my wife, or playing with my kids, so we really appreciated how this team just got right to work. They even fixed my daughters duvet cover! It’s really the little impressive things that puts this team above the rest. Even the smell! It’s not of chemicals or cleaners, but sweet vanilla. Our house is spotless now and we will for sure use them on a weekly basis. I couldn’t recommend them enough.
