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.

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.

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.

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.

Nikki was so great. I needed my apartment deep cleaned before moving in, and she did a fabulous job in just an hour. I'll happily hire Bring Me Maids for any future cleaning jobs.

Big thumbs up to Miracle Maids! I had a last minute move out cleaning performed. They were extremely accommodating and they went above and beyond to get the job done. The oven was the major item to tackle and now it’s sparkling clean. Highly recommended!

We bought a new, older home. Nikki and crew came to do our deep clean and did a fantastic job. The home had years of dust built up. Now it’s clean as the first day! We will be hiring Bring Me Maids to come back to clean regularly. Very satisfied.

Maid in America did a great job deep cleaning my small apartment. They were very responsive when I first reached out, their people arrived ahead of schedule, and the work quality was excellent. Have hired them to come back every other week because they did such a great job. Highly recommend.

This was another service in Atlanta that I had to hire from over a thousand miles away. Despite taking a chance, they were superb. I got the word from someone there that it was good enough that she wanted to use them as well. Can't say enough good things about Lila Maids. Very happy with the results.

Very Poor service. Everything was half-cleaned and I ended up going over everything myself. The two maids did not scrub any surface in my house and nothing was dusted. I had to instruct them on what to do after I was told they were finished. They stayed an extra 30 mins but it was just too much that they missed. Do not hire them to do whole house clean. Its a rip off.

A job well done by the Miracle Workers at Miracle Maids!!! I’d recently purchased a condo and needed a good deep clean before moving in. A few areas needed special attention such as baseboards, window sills, tubs, balcony, and all! Miracle did a complete walk through upon arrival to better address all my homes areas which needed extra attention; based off her demeanor and professionalism I could tell right off, my home was in great hands. I am amazed with the hard work and 100% change I experience once the job was complete. My home smells wonderfully and looks amazing! I’m so happy with my results and highly recommend Miracles Maids for your cleaning needs. I would like to also extend a special thank you especially to your Miracle Workers who completed the job! You ladies did an amazing job and I really appreciate all you’ve done to make my new home beautiful!

Hired Bring Me Maids for a deep cleaning prior to placing my house on the market. Team of 2 spent several hours at the house while we were in and out. Unfortunately , we were not home for a walk-thru prior to them leaving. Came home to a house that had in no way been deep cleaned . Toilets dirty, lots of dust on blinds, furniture, and doorframes, dirty hardwood floors, microwave had not even been touched . I was extremely disappointed. Although she offered to come back and "make it right", I had zero trust in them to do this job correctly. She since stopped responding to messages regarding refund. As I had to bring in another cleaning service (and pay again!) just hours after Being Me Maids left, in order to get a true deep cleaning prior to potential buyers coming in the next day. The new company said they had never seen such a poor cleaning job, ever. I would NOT recommend this company to anyone. I only took a couple pictures of my "clean" house. As I was honestly just too upset.

Nikki and her team are AMAZING!! When my regular cleaning service cancelled just 24 hours before out of town guests were set to arrive, Bring Me Maids saved me. They allowed me to book last minute, arrived on time, and exceeded all of my expectations! Not only is my place spotless, they put away dishes, remade my beds, and neatly arranged the toiletries on my bathroom counter. Their attention to detail is impeccable. I’ve already booked for future services.

Abbie is an absolute joy to work with! We've hired her to help with 3 projects now, and she is always on time, has incredible attention to detail, and—honestly—should be charging more for the quality of her work. She will go above and beyond and take the time she needs to make sure the job is done well. I've hired larger corporate cleaning services before (ATL Green Maids) and she still outshines in terms of attention to detail and not rushing. She is also a lovely human being to chat with with a very positive attitude.
