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.

What is upholstery cleaning?

From your carpets to your drapes to your furniture, all fabrics need to be cleaned. Cleaning upholstery, or the fabric on your furniture, removes the dirt and oils that are transferred to couches and chairs through regular use. Because furniture upholstery can be delicate and colors can fade easily, it’s often a good idea to let professional sofa cleaners handle the job. They’ll determine the type of fabric — usually cotton, linen, wool, suede or microfiber — and the appropriate method for cleaning it, either steam-cleaning or applying a dry-cleaning solvent. In general, cleaning an entire piece of furniture includes a pretreatment, cleaning, and neutralizing rinse to the body, plus removing and cleaning all cushions and cleaning all crevices.

An upholstery cleaner may clean the entire piece of furniture, on a regular schedule or by request, or do spot treatments to remove pet, food, drink, or oil and grease stains. Furniture can also be deodorized to remove the smell of pets or tobacco smoke. Furniture that’s used often, like that in your family room, should be cleaned once a year to keep it fresh and extend its life. Sofa cleaners often also offer repair services to mend tears in fabric or patch holes in leather.

How much does carpet cleaning cost per square foot?

In some cases, a quote from a carpet cleaning company will depend on the square footage of the room. The lower end of these prices will be between $0.15 and $0.20 per square foot, and they may rise as high as $0.40-$0.50 per square foot. Factors raising the price include the carpet’s condition (are there stains?) and whether they have to clean carpeted stairs, which take longer.

To find out how much it will cost clean your carpets, request cost estimates from pros near you.

How much does office cleaning cost?

Office cleaning costs an average of $200, but prices can range depending on the square footage. An office that’s 1,000 square feet or smaller costs $120 to clean. Meanwhile, spaces that range from 9,000-10,000 square feet cost $880, on average.

You can get a personalized cost estimate for your office or commercial space by contacting commercial cleaners near you.

Is it worth getting carpets professionally cleaned?

Purchasing a steam cleaner yourself may help to remove stubborn stains, but it simply won’t match the deep clean and efficiency that comes from hiring a professional carpet cleaner. Pros have powerful tools that can quickly remove even the most stubborn stains. 

If you’re selling your home, clean carpets can make your home more appealing to prospective buyers. And the expense is offset when you consider that you only need to get your carpets cleaned about once a year. Plus, professional carpet cleaning can extend the life of your carpets, saving you money in the long run.

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 does upholstery cleaning cost?

The cost to have your upholstered furniture cleaned depends mostly on two factors: the size of the furniture and the type of fabric. The national average cost of upholstery cleaning ranges from $120 to $150. Most people have multiple pieces cleaned at once, but sofa cleaners will come to your home for just one heavily soiled couch or to spot-treat stains. The smaller the furniture, the lower the cost: A lounge chair may cost an average of $50 to clean, while a couch costs an average of $135 and an L-shaped sectional costs an average of $190. Delicate materials such as antique fabrics or suede upholstery are more expensive to clean than sturdier ones. Having the sofa cleaner do repairs will also add to the cost. Repairs such as mending a tear in fabric or patching a hole in leather may be charged by the task or by the hour; in general, repairs cost an average of $15 each. Special or delicate fabrics may cost additional fees, too.

How long does carpet cleaning take?

Given the way it can transform the carpet, cleaning happens remarkably quickly. You can expect an average size room to require about 20 minutes to thoroughly clean.

The job could take longer for several reasons. If the stains are widespread or particularly deep, the professional cleaner might need to spend more time removing them. They may also need to take time to move furniture out of the way.

Reviews for Brookhaven general cleaning professionals
Thumbtack Customer
UPDATE - May 5, 2017: It pains me to have to provide an update to my previous review as, up until most recently, the crew has continued to do an exceptional job cleaning our house; especially in the bathrooms; tidying up, and just in general making it a wonderful place to come home to after ‘cleaning day’. Unfortunately the disappointment comes at the hand of the company’s owner who totally misses the mark in the area of the TRUE customer service and satisfaction she raves about. After a recent cleaning, I came home and noticed several “track” marks (some black) and hardened “spots” on our Berber carpet in every room upstairs that obviously hadn’t been there before. I immediately took pictures and provided them to the owner to make her aware. She responded, as expected, with concern and promptly made arrangements to come check it out for herself in person. It was then when she acknowledged that it appeared to be from the vacuum (which is brought by her crew), and tested a carpet cleaning product on the hardened spots. She suggested using her own steam cleaner to try to fix the damage. She returned the following week to do the steam cleaning herself, and while she was able to get a lot of the black markings off, she was not able to fix all the hardened spots or the tracks. Upon contacting her a few days later to find out what she had in mind for next steps, I was met with utter and complete disregard for customer service and outright lies. “Unfortunately I can not do anything else…..I spend 4 hours and I did it over and over…never said I will come to steam clean more than one time….” I then responded with a request to discuss a fair remedy, to which she responded venomously denying any and all responsibility whatsoever, after having admitted to the damage the week before. “I think you misunderstood me, this carpet was not damage by us… none of our cleaning supplies or our vacuum can’t cause this type of stains. … I did the steam cleaning to help you out but not because I was assuming the guilt…there is nothing else we can do for you….” Making that comment alone, deserves a negative rating in the area of customer service because, certainly as a professional providing a service, any reputable and reasonable company would still have attempted to make it right regardless of the situation, but more importantly it demonstrates her unwillingness to take responsibility for her mistakes and changing her story when she can't fix the problem. Not to mention, to subsequently insinuate that we made the marks ourselves and tried to blame her, is COMPLETELY unprofessional, and frankly so far from the truth given that I took the pictures and sent them to her immediately after they had been there to clean. This is not a trustworthy service provider and you should beware of hiring someone to work in your home that is dishonest and has no ethics. Original Review: Lorna and her team of trained professionals are just that...truly professional, don't cut corners and are extremely thorough both in the initial cleaning and each subsequent - but also efficient. Fair pricing and she brings her own supplies. Does not overbook her staff and has multiple teams but dedicates the same team to my house each time to gain consistency. Is punctual and sends a reminder the day before to confirm. If we're home they work around us and are conscientious of being quiet if we're on a call. Lorna herself is present during the first couple cleanings to ensure the job is done according to the clients' expectations. She takes much pride in her team and values her staff and her clients' satisfaction above all.

The owner was nice, and spoke English well. She was on time. However, my house was not thoroughly cleaned. The floors specifically didn't look like they were swept or mopped in some rooms, including all of the hardwoods upstairs, playroom on the main floor and the staircase. The bathtub in my son's room still had a ring around it. The wood furniture wasn't polished. I can tell a lot of actuaI cleaning didn't happen because the house didn't smell like pledge, Clorox or the other natural products I offered. The bottle of Bona floor cleaner should've been empty given the size of my house and the dust bin or my vacuum would normally be full. At the end of the service I saw one of the workers spraying my laundry room floor with bathroom spray cleaner vs. getting a mop with the Murphys soap and mopping the floor. I had to ask her to go get a mop and soap and water and wash the floor. She was also prepared to leave all of the garbage in my garage until I directed her to put it in the can outside. I inadvertently went upstairs and saw Elaine not wearing her mask in my child's bedroom and then wipe her nose with her bare hand and proceed to touch stuff in the room before washing her hands. I politely asked her twice to wash her hands and stop touching the kids stuff and and put her mask back on then she kindly did. This is important because I have 2 unvaccinated toddlers and it's generally just unsanitary. In the end, I had to go back and clean and straighten my house before christmas when I hadn't planned to. I had very high hopes for this provider given the photos I saw online and they had proof of vaccine. I alerted the owner but she just said Oh no. no offer to come back and clean or a discount.
