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.

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!

Yvette is exceptional! She responds promptly, is punctual, & very easy to work with. She listened to my special requests and did a truly outstanding cleaning job on my house. I have extremely high standards and honestly didn’t think anyone would be able to meet them & clean my house as well as myself. But I was wrong. Yvette not only met my high standards but she even surpassed them with her attention to detail. I was beyond impressed by the job that she did. She cleaned more thoroughly for a standard cleaning than the previous person did for a deep cleaning! I am so excited that I’ve found her (thanks, Thumbtack!) and look forward to having her come back to do regular cleanings!

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!!

Our house had not been professionally cleaned in sometime, Telma & Ruth were up for the challenge. Everything was handled in a very professional manner. I would hire this company again.

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.

Allison and her family just started cleaning my lake house as I do temporary rentals with AirBnB. I host up to 10 people on most occasions in a 4BR house. I've met Allison on a few occasions. I can say that she's one of the nicest people you'll meet, very personable and she does an amazing job cleaning. My guests always compliment on the cleanliness and it's IMPORTANT for repeat business. Beyond that, Allison is willing to go above and beyond when something isn't working (i.e. air conditioning) and check on it. She gives me good feedback about the property and anything I need to repair/replace. I would highly recommend Allison to anyone, regardless of the size job - she has enough help it seems. She's communicative and reliable. I couldn't be happier!

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!!!
