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.

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?

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.

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 do I choose the best house cleaning service?

When searching for the best house cleaning service near you, consider the depth of your cleaning needs, your budget and the size and condition of your home. Read reviews from verified customers of any cleaning service that you’re looking to hire. Also, check out the reviewers’ photos and do background checks on reviewers to ensure they’re not employed by established cleaning firms or maid agencies. 

When viewing house cleaners on Thumbtack, you might see a Top Pro badge. This indicates that the service is one of the most popular and highly-rated professionals using the platform.

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.

Reviews for Macon house cleaners

Candy did a great job cleaning our house that hadn't been cleaned in a while and was easy to work with on time/cost.
Janola W.
Overall I was satisfied. My house was already pretty clean, because of this I wish the cleaner could have been a little more detailed.
Thumbtack Customer
Candy was very prompt in responding with a quote for cleaning my house, and she adjusted it only slightly after a preliminary visit. She and Brittany then did a beautiful job of cleaning my house before the week was over! I will definitely be using her services in the near future.

Ultraclean, Inc. did a good job of cleaning a rental house. Crystal showed up on time with a co-worker and came ready to work with a lot of cleaning supplies. The owner of Ultraclean was also very responsive to requests. I would use them again.
Faiza A.
Great job! Very clean and organized things very well. Replied right on time and came to my house two days later. Will be booking again every two weeks!

There were several uncontrollable, unexpected events at the house during her scheduled cleaning time eg appliances that were supposed to be hauled away prior to her arrival but were still there and house inspectors that arrived early. She was great at communicating these unexpected challenges to me (I'm out of state) so I could reach out to solve them while she pressed on and did a great cleaning job in spite of it all. I would use her again.

Communication and responsiveness was critical to me since we were not yet living in Georgia when I looked for a cleaner for our Macon house. Candy focused on the cleaning we needed to have done, cleaning up after weeks of workers demolishing, rebuilding, sanding, painting and spreading so much dust and dirt that I would not move in without a cleaner's help. I plan to hire CBZ CleanBreeze as my regular cleaning company when I finally complete my move to Macon.

Deedee is very professional, she clean up my house from top to bottom very well she makes my bathroom tub's look new again. I'm very happy with the quality of the job she does. She's very respectful, very kind, I will refer her to anyone who wants a professional cleaner.

Candy did a fantastic job cleaning our home! We were so amazed at how clean the house looked and smelled great. She went over and beyond the things we talked about and got so much done. We already rescheduled and are so glad we found her. Thanks Candy! Awesome job!
Kim M.
Candy did a great job! Squeezed us in last minute because we had company coming and left our house shining! We have been disappointed with other cleaners in the past, but would definitely recommend cbz
Iris L.
Candy has only been out to clean our house once thus far, but the quality of her work is great! She works hard, and is completely open to what it is you would like done. Thank you, Candy!

Mireya’s quality of cleaning is superb. She made me feel really comfortable about the cleaning process and what would be completed in the allotted time (this was my first time using any cleaning service). I received a deep clean for my entire house, bathrooms were cleaned, tissue rolls decorated, closets organized, bedrooms cleaned each bed made up (hotel style), floors swept, vacuumed, and mopped, base boards cleaned. . . Kitchen cleaned dishes washed, and put away, oven cleaned, refrigerator wiped out. . . And all for a reasonable price and in considerable short amount of time. After each section she asked me to review, to confirm the area was cleaned to my liking, and each section was awesomely cleaned to my liking on the first try. She was very quick in responding, I Initially messaged her on Sunday she scheduled me for Wednesday, that same day. She communicated in explaining how she works and that she uses her own cleaning products. She notified me when she was on the way and her potential time of arrival. If you need any home cleaning services big or small Mireya is the one to call.

Amber and Amanda were troopers! I had not touched the house in a couple of months due to surgery. They came in and started getting everything under control. They did a great job and always asked me to check the areas to make sure I was happy. Ultra Clean Bryan is great to work with and flexible with my schedule. Glad I found such a customer focused company! .
Michelle J.
I will say it was a help to get things back in order, the overall goal was accomplished but I was not impressed. She half dusted, not dusting underneath items just around. Did not mop at all. Didn't clean my master bath shower, was not touched at all. Stuff still underneath the couch and ottoman. Wish my first housekeeping experience was more memorable on a positive note. Won't be going with this company again. I even left the house to give her space to work, I would definitely advise against that.

I am beyond impressed with how wonderful of a job these ladies did!!! Their work ethic attention to detail was incredible! They came before noon and worked until the job was 100% complete - which ended up being 9:30pm (I had a lot to be organized before they started cleaning) and I can't say enough how fabulous of a job they did!! I definitely feel like I got my money's worth!! The job was fairly priced & I feel like I got a lot of bang for my buck, that's for sure!! Both of these ladies were so professional and amazing at their job!! The response time was outstanding too. I clicked for info the night before last, got a response within 30mins and they were out yesterday morning, ready to hit the ground running. I will DEFINITELY be using their services from here on out! I'm very grateful to have found them!!! My house feels like a home again with everything organized and sparkling clean!! Thank you, thank you, thank you, ladies!!! I'll be calling soon to set up my next cleaning :)

AWESOME results! Candy’s professionalism and attention to detail is superb. Anyone can clean a house. I’m sure that there are lots of people out there that are good at what they do. But, if you’re looking for a professional who will come into your home and provide the attention to detail and the attitude of making sure you’re 100% happy with the results, Candy @ Cleanbreeze is your answer. I’m so happy that I started using Thumbtack instead of Home Advisor. The person that I hired from Home Advisor did not meet my expectations and only made Candy’s job more difficult and time consuming. So thankful to have found Candy!
