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.

I was dreading to find new crew for my house cleaning. But thassia and Christianne were amazing. They did a terrific job cleaning the house in detail and were open to any input I had. I have hired them to be my regular cleaners just after the first clean. Will update my post after a couple times more. Keep doing the good work ladies

Chris and her helper cleaned my daughters house and did an amazing job. Beds stripped, sheets washed and the list goes on. Well done. Top Team maids cleaning is worth it. Give them a try.

Thassia and team were very helpful. I found her on thumbtack to help clean my mothers house and they were very quick to respond. Her and her team were able to schedule a cleaning for the next day and finished our whole house in 2 hours. They were very detailed and responded to criticism well. Would highly recommend hiring this team.

Owner of company came to meet with me-made numerous appts to show up to clean and organize, but canceled each time. Then, at the last minute, tried to send 2 MEN in her place as she was too busy. She had represented them to me as handymen-not house cleaners. Meeting with her was a total waste of my time. Plus she is located more than an hour from me. Not sure why she wanted to drive from Leesburg to clean my house in Ocala. I have since hired someone else to clean my home once weekly. So far so good.

What a wonderful feeling! A clean house, superbly done I might add, at such a fair price! Very professional from start, a pre-cleaning visit to assess my needs, to the completed task. Kelly and Melissa are top shelf cleaners. If you are in need of a cleaning service, you'd better call soon. The word is out and her slots are going fast. GREAT JOB LADIES!

She was very easy to get ahold of. Came late at night to accommodate my schedule. Did such a great job cleaning my house. Got stains out that I thought were going to be impossible to remove and made my house smell great again. Would definitely recommend!

We have to say thank you to Citrus Cleaning for arriving on time - ready to get to work. Thank you also for your professionalism! The two gentlemen worked their magic on a filthy house (that was left by tenants). We cannot thank Citrus Cleaning enough for cleaning as they said they would - outstanding work and never complaining to us that there was no air-conditioning. They worked hard, non-stop, until it was all done and time to leave for the day. We are very satisfied customers; highly recommend Citrus Cleaning and we will not hesitate to hire them again. Thank you Citrus Cleaning.

Tracy did an outstanding job deep cleaning my house. Not only was she able to squeeze me in at the last minute but she spent some serious time and effort on cleaning my place top to bottom. The place looks and smells amazing and she did an outstanding job. I'm at work 6 days of the week and I was tired of spending my only day off cleaning my house instead of spending it relaxing with my family. Knowing that I now have a reliable person that I can trust will give me the extra time that I need to focus on my family. If you need somebody reliable and trustworthy you need to hire Tracy. I'm glad I found her.
