Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much do house cleaners cost in Atlanta?

The best house cleaners in Atlanta charge between $80 and $135. However, this cost is subject to change at any time and will vary depending on your needs. For example, the type of cleaning you need may impact the price. A standard cleaning, move-out cleaning or deep cleaning will likely all have different costs. Also, some cleaners charge different prices based on the number of bedrooms, and others offer extra services such as window or appliance cleaning. If you have something special that needs to be cleaned, such as mold, be sure to check with your house cleaner to see how much they charge. 

Please note: All cost estimates are accurate at time of writing and are subject to change. For the most accurate, up-to-date cost estimates for your specific project, get free estimates from pros near you. 

How do I choose the best house cleaning service in Atlanta?

When searching for the best house cleaning or maid service in Atlanta, read house cleaning reviews and look for the photos of the companies’ past work. Also, if you see a Top Pro badge in a house cleaner’s profile, this is a sign that the house cleaner is one of the most top-rated cleaners on Thumbtack. 

Atlanta homeowners should also consider their home type, budget and industry experience when looking for the best cleaning service. For example, because Atlanta is known for its hot and muggy summers, it’s a good idea to ask the cleaner or service what type of experience they have with preventing and cleaning mold inside homes. 

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.

How much do maids or house cleaners make in Atlanta?

While specific maid salaries depend on factors such as education, certification and other skills, the average salary of housekeepers and maids in the Atlanta area is $21,350 annually or about $10.26 per hour. This is lower than the current $25,570 national average for maids and housekeepers, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

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.

I can’t say thank you enough, our house has never been more clean! And aside from being a meticulous housekeeper, Kate has also been a pleasure to work with: super friendly, extremely responsive to messages, and shows up early. We will definitely be using Kate/My Housekeeper for all of our future cleaning needs!

Having not had a housekeeper since the pandemic began, I was somewhat concerned that it would be too much. A big house and lots of dust mice, etc. They were wonderful! Very professional and still very friendly. They cleaned and cleaned and now the house is all shiny and ready for company! I am so excited about having them clean for us on a regular basis! Definitely among the best housekeepers I've had!

I cannot say enough good things about CLS Cleaning. I needed someone last minute before a party after my regular housekeeper cancelled and they were able to come the next morning and take care of everything. They were professional, thorough, thoughtful, punctual, and had great communication throughout. Would give them a 12/10 if I could!!

As an Airbnb property owner, it is extremely difficult to find a team of housekeepers that deliver the level of cleanliness and professionalism we require to maintain our highl level of customer service and pleasant guest experiences. Words aren't enough to express how amazingly pleased my property manager and I were with the immaculate service the AAA Residential Cleaning team provided. Tiepha and Bunny arrived promptly and Tiepha was very communicative throughout her time at our rental home. It was VERY apparent that they were VERY maticulus and took time to ensure even the smallest details were not overlooked. We are VERY excited to have them as additions to our cleaning team and look forward to a VERY long and lasting business relationship. I am VERY glad that we continued our search to find a housekeeping team that takes pride in their work and stands by their word. We would recommend them to eVERYone colleagues as well as family and friends Thanks AAA!

Destiny showed up ready to work! We spent 6 hours together folding my mountain of clothes! I am definitely going to book her again next week to help me clean out my storage unit. She truly values quality over quantity. I highly recommend her for any of your housekeeping needs. I just needed my laundry folded. Mission complete! Thank you, Destiny! 😉

Xpressure Washing and Cleaning did an excellent job cleaning my home. They completed a very thorough deep cleaning which included cleaning the inside of my appliances (oven, refrigerator, etc.) as well as wiping down the interior windows and removing spots from the walls. They left no stone unturned. I wish I’d taken before and after pictures of their work, but take my word for it, they will take care of all of your housekeeping / cleaning needs in a timely, professional manner.

I contacted Lacy on Wednesday about a move out clean that Friday. She and her partner responded quickly and did an excellent job. My housekeeping skills are pretty much null and Lacy didn’t make me feel bad about it. Look at this fridge! She also cleaned my oven- hadn’t been cleaned in a year- I didn’t know it could look like that lol Great attention to detail and called to let me know she was on the way. The house smelled great but not like chemicals-like lavender. I have two pets and she was nice to them too. Just an overall pleasant experience. She takes pride in her work and it shows.

Alicia’s team did a great job cleaning my new home! I’m super happy with the services… They had 2 staff members at my place, brought their own supplies, didn’t really ask any questions, just went straight to work with minimal direction… They checked with me to make sure everything was up to my standards and, as you can see, they definitely delivered! Although they came a little later than expected, they communicated with me way in advance about the time conflict, which actually ended up working out for my schedule… This was my first time finding a housekeeping service in Atlanta that did exactly what I needed, so I will be a returning customer with at least monthly cleanings! Thank you!

As an Airbnb host, it is of great importance to work with housekeepers that offer attention to detail, arrive timely to appointments, communicate effectively throughout their assignments and respond/resolve concerns in a professional manner. We provided 2 opportunities for Wykia to show compitency in these areas but unfortunately she fell short each time. Though relitively nice and respectful, she did not complete either of her assignments as agreed and offered no resolution for the inconvenience her shortcomings caused me and my manager. On her 1st visit, she failed to mop any floors (or communicate that she neglected to mop them) nor did she complete laundry or make beds which were all a part of our agreement. On her second visit, the beds were not made properly and appeared that someone had been sleeping in or on them so they had to be remade. Sheets appeared stained and unwashed so required washing. The fridge was not wiped thoroughly and had to be recleaned. There were dirty dishes left in the dishwasher as well as a few other small things (bug left on floor, hair in shower, stain on toilet seat etc.) She also arrived 4 hours late and did not communicate timely with a status update. I had to reach out to her and she still failed to keep her new ETA..all without any regard to offer an apology or offer of a discount off the additional $40 over our regular cleaning fee we are expected to pay. As a business owner with high regard for customer satisfaction, especially when I drop the ball on providing adequate service, it is difficult for me to understand how she could be ok with this. She seems to care about running a good business, so I hope she is more considerate and respectful of future clients' time by, at minimum communicating delays and humble enough to admit when she falls short of expectations. That would have sincerely helped our team and left a better impression of her services.
