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.

Toni did an amazing job! Not only did she do an excellent first clean, she worked to get the first clean in promptly. She was very thorough in all that she did and worked hard to get our house cleaned. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing any kind of cleaning service!

They arrived an hour ahead of the time I was given for a “move back in after hurricane” clean up. On short notice! I surely appreciate it. My house smelled and looked great. Thank you!

My dad's house needed a deep cleaning and I had been trying for years for him to let me hire someone to come clean his home. He finally agreed! I spoke with Toni Phillips of BAPCS over the phone (I live out of state), and was immediately impressed with her professionalism, giving me details of what she would do, when she could do it, how long it would take (2 days), and gave me a reasonable estimate. I had expected the top end of the estimate, but she called me when she got to the house and came down to the middle of the estimate. She called me in the morning to let me know when she and her crew would arrive and again at the end of the day to let me know what they did, and sent pictures. Toni even went above and beyond when she fixed two kitchen cabinet doors that had fallen off. My dad was very pleased with how clean his house was, and has hired Toni/BAPCS to continue cleaning his house on a monthly basis. Thank you, Toni!

Q was very through with cleaning our rental property for us upon our leaving it and was very nice and friendly upon meeting us. He sent us pictures of the house after he finished cleaning to make sure we were satisfied with it and we would definitely use his services again!

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!

Toni does an amazing job cleaning my house. She is very detail-oriented and I haven't had anything to complain about. She is always reliable with communication and showing up. I've used BAPCS for 6 months now and couldn't be happier.

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. :(

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.
