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.

Jasmine was great. She responded quickly to a last minute apartment move-out cleaning request. She even cleaned the baseboards. I will definitely have her come clean my new house every few months!

We hired Extreme Cleaning LLC for our move-out clean in Decatur, GA. Firstly, they were on time for the job. The job began by 11:30 AM, and they were finished before 1:30 PM. We had three pets who lived in the home, but you can’t tell that after the clean. There’s no pet hair to be found! Honestly, the apartment didn’t look this good when we moved into it. I would highly recommend Extreme Cleaning LLC, and I would gladly hire them for another job!

Ana and her sister were very friendly, honest and responsive. I needed a move-out cleaning of a very old and dingey apartment located in front of a construction site. The window sills and blineds were filled with dirt from the site and they were able to make the place shine! And all with a smile. I wouldn't hesitate to hire them again!

Complete Cleaning is truly unprofessional. They messaged me 9 minutes before our appointment start to let me know they were stuck behind an accident and would be late. Ok, understandable. At 30 minutes after our scheduled appointment time, I messaged again asking when they would be arriving. They told me they needed to go get something to eat, because they had been working all day. What?! I never want someone to go hungry, but it's their job to schedule meal breaks accordingly, not their clients'. Then, instead of giving me a time, they asked if I preferred they would come the following day - to which I replied no, because I needed services at the scheduled time (or at least at some point that day). They then replied asking me if I had two kitchens, presumably looking at photos of my home online - which has an attached studio apartment that I had not planned to have cleaned that day, and did not include in the original job description, so there was really no reason to be asking about it that late in the game. That was the last message I got. They never sent me a time, apologized, or answered any questions directly. I cancelled a few minutes later. DO NOT book Complete Cleaning, they will leave you high and dry. Worst experience I have ever had on Thumbtack.
