Your burning questions: answered

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. 

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.

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?

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.
Thumbtack Customer
Candy did a deep clean on our house yesterday and I cannot say enough how wonderful it looked! She managed to clean every surface in our house! Her attention to detail is exceptional! I would highly recommend her! Looking forward to her biweekly visits!

Candy did an amazing job making my house look and smell great. Her attention to detail and thoroughness were truly amazing. I highly recommend Candy for anyone in need of cleaning services! I look forward to having her back on a regular basis to maintain this sparking clean house.

Today was the first time Custom Cleaners cleaned house for me and my husband. I was very impressed with their timeliness and the wonderful job they did. I have scheduled them for recurring cleaning. I recommend them very highly.

The ladies were very kind to work around us until all our stuff was out of the house. Great job cleaning!
Paul G.
We could not be happier with the work that was done. The house looks and smells wonderful. It is so nice to have a clean house to move into. They pay attention to the small details, and all the work was done with excellence. We will definitely be using their services again!

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.
Susan H.
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.

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!
Thumbtack Customer
Maggie and Chris did an amazing job with my apartment move out cleaning. I had a busy day so I left my key at a previously agreed upon location and told them what should be thrashed and what shouldn't be. When I came back, the apartment was spotless (and the non-trash items). They even went the extra mile as Chris came the next day to remove the last furniture. I definitely recommend them to anyone looking for house cleaning services.

Sandra and Megan are PHENOMENAL! Would recommend them to anyone searching for support in cleaning their homes. Within 2 days, my recently moved in house looks like it has been a home for years! Their work is flawless and seamless, and they are such sweet and kind people. They truly have a gift, and we look forward to having their support many years to come :)

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! .

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!
