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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Beth did an amazing job doing a deep clean on the townhouse we moved out of! I plan on having her come to our new house on a regular basis starting in the new year to make sure we stay on top of the cleaning.

Soledad’s crew did such an amazing job on my house for a more than reasonable price. Our intent was to hire for a one time deep clean, but we are so happy with the job they did, we have decided to have them come out and clean once a month.

Selma did an amazing job! The house was so clean when we got home and she even was willing to take our dog out of the kennel and put her back just to vaccum the room.

I used this service probably a year ago, and didn't realize I had not reviewed. I thought she was great. She took the time to look at the house first, and did a great job cleaning.

Did a good job with helping me clean windows and blinds and bathrooms when moved out of our house. Stayed longer to finish the job, even had her husband pick up the children so she could stay to finish the job. Would recommend to a friend.

I just loved Grime Busters service. I had hired them for monthly “Deep cleaning”, but after the first cleaning appointment, I just loved their work so much that I immediately signed up for biweekly cleaning. They are punctual, friendly and extremely dedicated towards their work. I have had a baby recently and my townhouse was a big mess. They made it squeaky clean. Every little corner of my house was well taken care of. Their attention to detail is simply mind blowing. I would BLINDLY recommend them to all my friends and family. Totally worth it !! Thank you Grime Busters for your amazing service.

Pamela showed up on time without being a minute late, very presentable very prepared, and took the job very seriously. When I returned home after the hour appointment, I couldn't believe how detailed and thorough the cleaning job had been handled. Pamela went far and beyond cleaning my house from top to bottom and in every room, with absolute professionalism and care. I would highly recommend Pamela for anyone looking for a one time, occasional, or routine cleaning of your home. No matter how big or small your house or apartment maybe, Pamela makes sure that getting the job done to the high standard she has seem to set is her top priority first and foremost. I will definitely request her again, due to my busy schedule, Pamela will become a great asset in keeping my home in an impeccable condition.

These ladies were fantastic! Really nice and worked hard! My house was spotless and they are now coming every 2 weeks! I have continued to have Irene's wonderful family clean my home for the past year. I just asked them to wash and dry all of the painted woodwork in my very large home, baseboards and crown molding. They worked diligently until all of the woodwork was spotless! This was a huge project! Along with the painted woodwork they then spotlessly cleaned and polished all of my wood cabinets. I cannot sing their praises enough! Generally I am not home when they arrive but I always know they have been here when I get home because my house is spotless and smells fantastic! I cannot recommend them more highly!

Beth was great! I hired Beth for a deep clean before I put my house on the market. I asked for help on a Saturday evening and she responded right away. Beth was very thorough on everything I asked her to do. She made sure I was happy before she left and offered to come back if she missed anything. I was very happy with her service! She was also great communicating with via text. I highly recommend her for a cleaning job!
