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.

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 are the different types of house cleaning services I can get?

There are several services offered by professional house cleaning companies, each suited for a different purpose. These services include:

  • Standard cleaning, which is a basic cleaning typically done on a weekly or monthly basis;
  • Deep cleaning, which is a detailed cleaning with more intensive work than a standard clean;
  • Move-in and move-out cleaning, which is a detailed service preparing a home for residents moving in or out;
  • Green house cleaning, which is a service that uses eco-friendly cleaning supplies and products. 

Aside from the type of cleaning services available, homeowners may also choose daily, weekly, monthly or one-time 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.

Karan is amazing. She does her work very throughly. I have a golden retriever and a Siberian cat, and she is very sweet with both of them making me also feel more comfortable to have her work in my house. Karan has also been very reliable which I missed from previous people who cleaned for me. She brings all the cleaning supplies and the house smells wonderful each time she has been. Thank you Karan!

Wow! I had an injury and couldn't do much in the house. It got way out of hand using a cheaper cleaning service who did a horrible job. Turnkey came in an cleaned for hours. They did a spectacular job and it is more than worth the price! The owner is very personable and caring. I have hired them full time and look forward to it!

Very Very Very disappointed in this service! I was quoted 165 to complete a move out clean. I was called when the time was up telling me only the kitchen was completed. He offered to finish it at a discounted rate ect ect. When we looked at the kitchen to finish the rest of the house the kitchen still was not even clean. I can provide pictures. I understand that the house may not have been able to been completed but I wish he would've called when he arrived and told me he didn't think he could finish in the four hours. Instead i was called at the end of the time asking for more money. After expressing my dissatisfaction, I was told to send my pay pal information so I could be reimbursed and I've done this and have not received the money back. I was hopeful I could hire this service ongoing in my new home, but I would NEVER hire this person to clean. Disappointed, moving in stressful enough. I was hopeful this could've helped some but it only added. I had to take additional time off work to clean when I had hoped to have a cleaner do it. :(

Luana was polite and responsive but did not meet expectations. I thought we discussed a deep clean but it was pretty average. I told her we just finished a reno and that we were expecting a new tenant to move in so there was a lot of dust. After reviewing the house there was still a considerable amount of dust on fans, light fixtures and window moulding. The track of the bathroom sliding doors still had grime. She was kind enough to offer to come back but we just didn’t have the time. It was good for a very basic clean but it was just not what was expected. Maybe I wasn’t clear enough but unfortunately would not use LV Cleaning again.

When looking for someone to do a move out cleaning this company presented me with the best price. Their responses to my question were punctual and I so happy that I selected them to do this job for me. The house looks better than we moved in a year ago and I would recommend this company to anyone that is moving out of their home.
