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. 

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.

Claudia did a great job cleaning my house. Even though it took longer than she originally anticipated, she did not rush through cleaning, and saw that the job was done right. Next time I do a move out clean, I will definitely choose her.

Lindsey was great! She contacted me promptly and was very professional. She came to our house with a 1st time clean rate and did a good deep clean. They were very flexible on the services and prices to meet my needs and budget.

Joel and Kari are excellent. I recently moved to Boise from out of state was hesitant in hiring private house cleaners off of a website but I am so glad I did. I do not have to worry about a thing with Joel and Kari - they are trustworthy, efficient, easy to communicate with and great at what they do. I love coming home to a clean house and highly recommend Joel and Kari!

Claudia and her team did an amazing job! We were on a very tight timeline to get the house "move out" cleaned and she came the next day and worked us in around her other appointments in order to meet our deadline. She and Her team were very professional and did a really great job and had very competitive rates. It was a pleasure to have her help us get the house cleaned to sell. Thanks Claudia for saving the day!

Kari did an excellent job cleaning our condo that we Airbnb. She was very responsive, professional, and left the condo spotless. I forgot to give her the code to the key box and she was so understanding and flexible. I would highly recommend using Kari for any of your house cleaning needs.

Amber Noriega arrived on time..maybe ahead of time...and came to my door ready to work. She looked professional and maintained that professionalism the entire time she cleaned. She is amazing!!! I am very impressed with the house cleaning job she did for me. The bathrooms shine, the kitchen is sparkling and the floors are clean and mopped. She even did inside windows. Her rates are competitive and fair! I would and will recommend her whole-heartedly!!

I asked for a last-minute cleaning job and they were able to come out the day after. They did a stunning job, everything was in its place, very quality work. They were very nice with my animals too, which is always my worry with cleaners coming to the house. They charged $150 for my 703-foot apartment. I noticed this is on the high-end of Boise cleaners, however, the quality of the work was worth the money. They gave me a coupon for a monthly service—which I will be using.

I cannot say anything but the most outstanding comments about A&E Cleaning Company. With a very tight deadline to get a rented house cleaned and back to its owner after being occupied for ELEVEN years by a now 100 year old male bachelor uncle who went to a assisted living facility, they came through with flying colors. The kitchen, a utility room, and two bathrooms looked like a disaster zone requiring HazMat clothing! Unfortunately, no "before and after" pictures were taken (especially the refrigerator, stove, floor and toilets) as that would have been the best endorsement of what they had to contend with. It was GROSS! After carefully checking out several other companies on ThumbTack, I selected A&E late Tuesday evening and a team was out at the house the next Friday morning. The house had to be ready for the owner in two business days thereafter. Two people worked 7 1/4 hours non-stop doing these areas plus a bunch of windows (in and out) that I wanted done after they arrived. They finished everything the same day. And the final price was quite reasonable! They did the impossible and cleaned everything beyond my wildest dreams, and I am so pleased with the results. Squeaky clean is most appropriate to the finished work they did. My wife is now on me to have them regularly clean our house so we'll be checking out that possibility. In short, I'd give them ten stars on a five star scale. Great job!!!

They showed up over an hour late with only half their team. They then tried to reschedule while there. They had scheduled a job for 3 even though it was a move out clean. They were told the size of the house in advance and upcharged us by an extra $300 halfway through the job and said they wouldn’t finish the job unless we paid. The blinds and window sills are filthy, they didn’t clean the light fixtures, The outside windows were not touched even though we were charged additional for doing the windows. They left without saying goodbye and left our front door wide open At midnight when they left. We paid to have the fridge cleaned and the freezer wasn’t touched. I can’t believe they doubled my price and left my house looking like that and I paid them double what they quoted me! Definitely took advantage of a situation where we were desperate. I would never recommend them ever.

The work was exceptional and very thorough! I have used other companies in the past and now I see I wasted my money! My house is so clean, smells amazing and no corner or edge was missed. I care for my mom with dementia and the crew was so kind and understanding when mom tried to "borrow" dust rags. I will never use another company now that I found this one!

Be forewarned. Read all of the reviews for these two — I wish I had. The five stars that Thumbtack is displaying is not a true representation of this husband and wife house cleaning team. Joel and Kari are unprofessional, lack attention to detail and thoroughness and are missing the instinct that good business owners and good humans have — the honesty and integrity to do the right thing when a mistake is made. Here, a $100 refund was, at minimum, the right thing to do. Not $50. Not coming back a week later to clean again and waste my time. And certainly not blaming my sister for not double checking every single thing they were hired to do for completeness. Joel and Kari were given the opportunity to be decent. But instead, despite being faced with the truth in the images of dirt and grime still present throughout my home (see attachments), elected to do nothing but make excuses and point the finger elsewhere. The bottom line is this: Joel and Kari Foxx were hired to complete a deep clean of my home for $250. They did some cleaning, but did not do what they were hired to do. Period. I've hired great, responsible, quality-first people several times on Thumbtack. Joel and Kari Foxx are not those people. Do not trust that they will do what they say they will. Do not hire them.
