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. 

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?

I am extremely happy with the result of the initial cleaning of my house by Nick and his partner. They worked continuously during the 4 hours they were here. They did such projects as cleaning all my louvered doors including closets, cleaned the baseboards throughout the house and even cleaned my oven racks. My floors are shiny clean as are my bathrooms, and the hard water stain is gone from my tub. I'm glad I discovered them on line and I'm so pleased with them, that I'm going to have them come weekly.

I've been trying to work with ABS Carpet/Floor and Home Cleaning, but they don't seem to know how to respond in a timely manner. When I did try to schedule and house cleaning, I had to constantly message then to confirm the date and time. The day comes for the house cleaning and no one showed up or called or messaged me the whole day. I sent a message, but no response. I would not recommend this company because of the unprofessionalism.

She was responsive and we worked out the details quickly. I hired her to clean the house of one of my employees as a gift. My employee was thrilled and was so happy with her clean home. It was a great experience and we'll definitely be contacting her again for future jobs.

Omg our house looks amazing! I just had knee surgery and needed some help around the house and my little flat looks even cleaner than when I moved in (and a million times better then when I cleaned it myself hahahah) All for such a reasonable price, I couldn’t believe it. I’m a college student and would have never been able to afford it otherwise, so this was truly a godsend. They were such lovely people as well, so kind and accomadting!! definitely going to be using them in the future for all of my cleaning and household needs. ❤️❤️❤️❤️THANK YOU GUYS!!!

If you're looking for someone who is ultra detail oriented and treats the job as if it were their own house, book Sunny. She's hand down the best cleaner I've ever had. Past experiences with house cleaners have been good, but never great. They get the job done but there are many things that they don't see or they miss. Sunny is incredible. She leaves the places she touches looking like they're brand new. Beyond that, she's professional, punctual and trustworthy pleasant. Try her!! You will not regret it.

Chassidy and her mom did an excellent job cleaning my 98yr. old dad's very cluttered house! They worked efficiently and were very responsive to his cleaning needs and respectful of his requests that certain areas not be touched. We will be requesting their services again not only for the quality of work but because my dad felt comfortable with them in his home.

This cleaning service damaged my brand new driveway parking on it and leaking oil into the cement after I asked them not to ever park in the driveway and did not pay for the damage. They used wrong cleaners and damaged my dresser and made my bathroom slippery where my husband fell. The worst was one of the cleaners refused to keep her mask on in my house and I’m high risk and my husband and children were home. Jill Pargoe

Ramil is extremely professional. He responded to our request within hours, followed-up as promised & communicated frequently to ensure that our expectations were met. His team cleaned our home under his supervision. When we arrived home, the house was incredibly clean with spotless floors, dust free furniture & the sweet aroma of a fresh home. Thank you Ramil!

Anne and her crew saved the day for me when the pro I hired bailed out on me at 9 pm, the day before. I wasn’t sure if I was going to find someone so last minute but I messaged her and she responded immediately and took the job. I hired her for a move out cleaning just for the kitchen and bathroom, but she and the girls did above and beyond that. They practically did most of the house which really made my life so much more stress-free. I can’t thank them enough. I’m so satisfied with her service, I’m thinking of hiring her for regular monthly or quarterly cleaning of our new house. Thanks, Anne!
