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.

Linda did a GREAT job cleaning our house! When I walked in the house after it was cleaned, it felt like a brand new house. She worked very hard and didn't leave until the job was complete. I am very grateful for Linda and all the work she put into making our house look spotless!

MJ VIP did an excellent job cleaning my house so that it could be shown to potential buyers. They were prompt, professional, worked fast and very understanding when they had to work around us while we were packing up the house. I will recommend them to anyone who needs a house cleaning. 10/10.

Vero did an absolutely wonderful job doing a deep clean of my entire house after my two roommates moved out. She was here on time, and worked diligently. Every surface in my house was cleaned thoroughly. I would definitely recommend her to others.

What a through and fantastic job she did on a house of boys that hadn’t been cleaned all year probably- went the extra mile to move furniture. Probably cleaner than when the boys moved in last year. Definitely call for your cleaning needs!

We hired this company for a move out clean with thumbtack. Our project detail showed very clearly we were moving. They showed up, complained that the house was “too dirty” to their boss. We had already cleaned out the oven and fridge. The carpets had already been vacuumed and shampooed. They had to clean an empty house: two bathrooms, 3 bedrooms. For what we paid them, there should have been no complaining (which is unprofessional).

Luzia showed up extremely late for our appointment. There were no “instructions” given beforehand. We posted for a deep clean with the fridge and oven cleaned. We get a text an hour into her cleaning that she has left to go home…. Okay? She said our house was not in shaped to be cleaned? That our fridge had too much stuff in it and she wasn’t taking items out to clean it. I recommend hiring someone else. She does not show up on time and did a really bad job of “cleaning” for an hour before leaving. We had another service come in days later and had 0 issues with the state of our house. Go elsewhere.

Spot of Perfection did an awesome job cleaning our house after move-in and before the holidays! Athemba was super responsive on Thumbtack, showed up right on time, and did a great job cleaning. I highly recommend adding on a fridge cleaning as well. She got ours spotless so it was ready to go for Thanksgiving! 💯 recommend Spot of Perfection! Thanks, Athemba!

Johnette truly cares about the house being clean everywhere, even the places where I had never even noticed the dirt! I've had housecleaners before who did make the house look much cleaner, but left lots of little dirty pockets in corners because the larger company they worked for only gave them a certain amount of time to work. I'm turning a house into an Airbnb football rental and I needed to find someone who is very focused on the details so my business gets good reviews from picky customers. Her pricing is very fair considering the massive amount of work she does to get everything clean, not just what is easy to see at first glance. I'm glad I found her instead of going with a major cleaning company that gives their employees less time to do a really good job.

My project was a terminal clean. The renters had moved out and the house did not smell very good. They did it all including baseboards and ceiling fans. It looked and smelled great. Thanks Linda!!!!!

Johnette and Amanda did an excellent job on the first scheduled cleaning for me. Johnette was very responsive to my messages and we were able to set up a cleaning within only a couple of days from our initial interaction. They showed up on time and got right to work. They are flexible and were willing accommodate my requests to tailor the cleaning (and future cleanings) to what I need done. They were both very professional and left my house sparkling clean. I have set up recurring biweekly cleanings and look forward to having them back.

Hiring someone based on online reviews can be tricky but I got it right this time! These ladies were assigned to a foreclosure property that appeared to have never made friends with a broom, mop or vacuum cleaner. They worked diligently and did a fantastic job cleaning and getting the house and exterior ready for photos so it could be listed on the market to sell. I'll surely call on Angels on a Cleaning Mission again. You've found your pro cleaner, look no further - give them a call today!

Vero was quick to respond to my message and fit my cleaning in the same week. She deep cleaned our house and it honestly wasn't even as clean as she made it when we moved in. She was thorough, professional, and kind. She didn't just do a surface job but moved stuff around to dust and really paid attention. I will use her again for sure! Please give Vero your business, I've already recommended her to all my friends!

ASAP tackled a 5 bedroom house that 5 young men had lived in and trashed. They were very friendly and easy to communicate with. They cleaned out drawers, wiped down baseboards and window sills. They took pride in their work. I’m super happy with the results.
