Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

How long does it take to clean a house professionally?

Generally, getting your house cleaned professionally can take several hours. The time it takes for house cleaners to complete their job depends on the size of your home, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms you have, the type of service you require and the condition of your house. It also might depend on how many employees are cleaning and the supplies they are using. If you get recurring cleaning services, the first visit might take a bit longer than the subsequent visits. 

When choosing the best house cleaner for you, ask for an estimate about how long their services will take.

How much is a house cleaning?

The national average cost for house cleaning ranges between $25 and $50 per hour, per cleaner. However, the cost of house cleaning services near you might be different.

House cleaning prices vary based on how many square feet your home is, how dirty your house gets and how often the cleaning service comes. And, prices can be lower in areas with a lower cost of living, higher in big cities or affluent regions.

Some companies charge a set amount — such as 5 cents — per square foot, with a minimum amount, such as $100. You may save money by increasing the frequency of your house cleaning visits. Often a company will charge you less per cleaning when you schedule more cleanings per month. The cost advantage rewards your loyalty, and also reflects the fact that more frequent cleanings make it easier to maintain a high level of cleanliness in your home. A housecleaning service may charge more for the first visit or for one-time services than for recurring cleanings.

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.

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?

For more tips on how to hire the best maid or house cleaning service, read our smart hiring guide.

What is included in a deep house cleaning vs. a basic house cleaning?

A basic house cleaning typically includes tasks like carpet cleaning, wiping countertops, taking out the trash, doing the laundry and washing dishes. A deep house cleaning is a much more involved process, where all aspects of the home are given full attention for a cleanout. In a deep house cleaning, the cleaners will wet-wipe everything from door frames to light switch plates, making sure to also clean walls, windows, air vents, ceiling fans, furniture and more.

How do I prepare for a house cleaner?

There are several things you can do in preparation for a house cleaning to improve the efficiency and quality of the job. If you’re unfamiliar with a cleaning service, hiding and locking away any obvious valuables lying around can offer great peace of mind.

Depending on the preference of the cleaner, you may need to lock up your pets before the cleaners arrive. Washing dishes and decluttering the house allows a house cleaner to do their job more effectively. And leaving special notes for the cleaners about certain areas in your home that need attention is also helpful.

Ask house cleaners near you about their tips to help you prepare for their services. 

How much should you tip maids or cleaning services?

Tipping between 15 and 20 percent is considered an appropriate tip for maids and house cleaners — just as it would with a barber, food delivery driver or taxi operator. During the holidays, you might want to consider tipping a bit more. 

It’s important to note that some housekeeping and maid services might include a tip within the service fee, which should be explained to you in the service contract. Talk to house cleaners in your area to find out what's included in their fees.

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.

Leal cleaned our house for the first time yesterday. We are extremely happy. He was punctual which was the first plus. He was very thorough and detailed with every room of the house. We have always had a problem getting the hardwood floors cleaned properly and he made them look great. We are very happy with our switch to Leal Cleaners and we highly recommend them to anyone who wants to have their house cleaned properly.

Johnette is super professional and does a terrific job of cleaning the house. I am hairline “OCD” about my home being clean, and she had solutions for any problem I have faced- like her solution for keeping shower doors clean! So glad I found her. You will be too!

We needed a move out cleaning for our home and hired this company to help us. Kaneshia & Andre were a delight to interact with, very through cleaning the house. I wish I had known about them sooner when I needed bi-weekly cleaning, would certainly have used them to clean for us.... would not hesitate to hire them again.

Sheena has cleaned our house a couple times and has done a wonderful job. She pays attention to details and isn’t offended if I point out mistakes. Her very upbeat personality is wonderful and she is always punctual. She is the first cleaner that I’ve ever had that actually gets down on her knees to clean the shower floor!!

We needed a last minute whole house deep cleaning. YGMY was very responsive. making their schedule work with mine, and arriving on time. Five hours later, the work performed met our expectations. We will definitely consider calling YGMY in the future.

Paid 200.00 cash, I wasn't home, my husband was there. The only thing cleaned was my kitchen. When I originally spoke with Tiffany, I told her my house was a mess, dusty & needed deep cleaning-2 bedrooms, 1 1/2 bath-living & dining area. Didn't want her to clean 3rd bedroom. When I came home-well-master bedroom was vacuumed & dusted partially. 1/2 bath, toilet & sink cleaned. full bath cleaned and mopped except bathtub wasn't cleaned. Living & dining area & 2nd bedroom weren't touched. When I called to ask about the so called deep cleaning. I was told she had taken pictures before she cleaned & my house was a filthy mess & I should open my eyes because she had done all she could for 200,00. I have asked to see the pics, so far none. I also took photos of the areas in question when I got home. I would steer clear of this service if you really need a good cleaning unless you want to be subjected to not so nice behavior. I am trying to find a way to post these photos & will as soon as I can. Then I'll clean myself & post what I had to do after completely throwing away 200.00. I do not recommend this service.

They are the best , they went above and beyond to get this house clean and the stuff they were able to get done I wouldn’t have thought possible to have gotten done in a day and they have a very flexible schedule , I very much respect and appreciate them for what they do.

These folks came and meant BUSINESS! Cleaned our house from top to bottom to prepare it to put on the market. Got here on time and worked hard from the moment they got here and even went the extra mile on the teenage boy’s room. Highly recommend! We’re hoping they’ll put us on their bi-weekly schedule.

I am over the top happy with the wonderful job Leal cleaning did. Fernando arrived on time and worked steadily the entire time!! My house is stunning! My wood floors, tile countertops, tile shower, sinks, ceiling fans, baseboards and all furniture are all sparkling . Marina is such a pleasure to work with, she is very professional and takes care of every detail to make sure her customers are completely satisfied. I’m pretty picky, especially with my gorgeous hardwood floors, and I’m so happy with how everything turned out. I’m so blessed to have found Leal cleaning, I have already set up next cleaning.😊

I had a three story house badly in need of cleaning. The first team MJ sent out was simply not up to the task. The ladies worked hard and long, but their work did not meet my (high) standards of cleanliness. I discussed this with Julianna who asked for another chance to prove what MJ could do. So, I gave her the chance. I liked that instead of shrugging her shoulders and walking away from the situation, she took the problem and overcame it, which many business owners in this line would not bother to do. The second team she sent was superb. Good attitude and did a thorough job. The house looks great, and I KNOW what it takes to clean this place. This business is the most expensive listed on Thumbtack at this time, and I expected well above average results. It took two tries, but I got what I wanted. Thanks for persisting, Julianna, in your quest for excellence.

If I could give 15 million stars I would! I’ve not had much luck contacting House cleaners on here; but within just a few minutes of my initial request, Salena responded with her information, quote and number. I called and she was able to fit me into her jammed packed schedule (we are moving and needed a deep clean before showings began) within the same week! Fast forward to the day of, and she arrives 20 minutes early (who arrives early anymore - how amazing!) - her team and her walked through my home, I explained what I wanted, and they immediately jumped in. Y’all...the cleaning of our home...I could eat off the floors (not that I would but it’s that clean!)...the baseboards and trim look like they’ve been painted they’re so shiny. The windows - well, a bird flew into one this morning because she made them so clean they were invisible! By the time they were done, the place looked and smelled so good, I’m now questioning our move because I don’t want to lose her services!!! You won’t be disappointed; and I’m not one to gush - give her a try, I promise you won’t regret it!!!
