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. 

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?

How often should you have your house cleaned?

The frequency you should have your house cleaned depends on several factors, and the best professional house cleaner can give you a rough estimate of costs so you can budget how often you need someone to clean your home. 

Daily house cleaning may be necessary if you have a home with a large number of bedrooms with young children and kids, although other homeowners may benefit from weekly house cleaning. A weekly cleaner can clean the bathroom, kitchen, do laundry, vacuum and mop. An occasional deep house cleaning is most beneficial for people who have recently renovated a home or are looking to do a spring clean.

It was my first time getting my house professionally cleaned and Royalty Reliance did an absolutely amazing job and were also very friendly. The house looked awesome and smelled very clean. So happy I found this company, I will definitely be using their cleaning services again!

I got my newly purchased house entire cleaned and it looks great. The ladies were early and finished in less time than I was estimated so that was awesome. I had painters in the house and the previous owners hadn't cleaned that well so this was well worth the money. I'll definitely use them again when I need a full clean done.

Their work is terrible. I agreed a price of $199 , and I paid upfront. I asked her to clean the entire house with details in what to be cleaned such as floor, kitchen, window glass, etc. She came to clean the house. In the evening, I checked the house but found a few important places were still dirty . The oven was still dirty, the window glass was not cleaned at all. I called her and mentioned that there were a few places were still dirty. She promised to come again to clean. But she never showed up. I ended up with cleaning Those places by myself. I will not recommend this company to anyone because they just clean the easiest places, and ignored the dirty ones. Even you pointed them to clean some certain places within the price, they still did not deliver. The cleaning service with such a low quality really does not worth your money. Don’t hire them

Excellent job! Paulina goes above and beyond for cleaning. I love coming home to a clean house. We have had her doing work at our home for about 2 months now. You won't be sorry if you go with her.

I was contacted by Ursula who came to my house and gave me a quote. She said she could start after the Thanksgiving holiday and would give me a call. I never heard from her. If they clean houses the same way they run their business then WATCH OUT!

Halina's team did a great job cleaning our house. She was meticulous to details, dusting, and nothing was left untouched. We've hired them for recurring cleanings. Halina was also able to accommodate our scheduling, which was difficult. I would recommend their services to anyone.

I asked that my house be given a deep spring cleaning. Veronica and Lupe arrived on time, took the time to understand specifically what I wanted done, and worked tirelessly to complete the job. I went through afterward to check their work and it was very well done. They had vacuumed and dusted everything, including under any pieces of furniture that they could. They also swept and scrubbed my kitchen floor, cleaned my hardwood floors, and washed the fronts of all my kitchen cabinets in addition to all the regular cleaning (bathroom, bedrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen, stairs, and foyer). My house looks and smells clean. If I could figure out a way to afford to have them come in on a regular basis, I would.

We found Martyna on Thumbtack and hired her based on her great reviews. Wow! She did an amazing job cleaning our house. Everything is sparkling and perfect. There is no surface left untouched. We are so impressed with her that we have scheduled cleanings every four weeks. You will not be disappointed with her punctuality, quality of work, and professionalism.

Dove and her team did an exceptional deep clean of my home . She was swift to respond when I contacted her and arranging an agreed day for the deep clean was prompt. Dove and her team were very thorough with the cleaning too and despite I not physically present in the house, she and her team did not short of a great job. I will definitely use her service(s) if and when I need it in future. Highly recommended. Thank you once again Dove.

I paid for my kitchen, 2 bathrooms and windows to be cleaned. Matthew arrived early which was great! However he did not perform the services I requested. He did not wipe down all the cabinets in my kitchen and only cleaned one window out of the 11 windows I have on the 1st floor of my home. I recently painted most of the windows so I told Matthew he did not have to clean the window sills for all the windows except for 1 that was not painted. However, the glass for all the windows still needed cleaning, which he did not do. My upstairs bathroom counter was not completely cleaned. There was a lot of dirt and grime left around the faucets and other areas. The toilet was not completely cleaned either. There was still heavy dust buildup left in the corners on the floor near my tub which I specifically requested in my package to have cleaned. I felt like he was rushing through the cleaning as he mentioned several times throughout the evening that he needed to finish soon because he had to get up early for a 9a cleaning job in Plano or Plainfield. What does that have to do with me and the job you were hired to do at my house? I hired this service because I did not have time to clean my entire house while preparing for a huge party we were having the next day. Yet my husband and I still had to stay up late cleaning everything I paid the service to do that they did not do. Complete waste of money that we didn't have to spend in the first place. I will never use this company again and will never recommend others to use.

I was very pleased to have Joanna and her Co worker come today for a quote on my house, and they were able to give me a few quick hours of cleaning to keep me on track. They seemed experienced, efficient, and professional. I contracted services for every other week. Very please. Would recommend.

I was so hopeful that I would have a good experience despite some of the bad reviews I saw. We hired Essence for a move out cleaning for the property we moved out of. On a surface level it appeared she did a good job. The house smelled fresh & clean. However, once she left I began to look at things in detail. I specifically asked for blinds, baseboards, & windows to be cleaned/dusted as this is what the landlord required amongst other normal things like vacuuming, sweeping, mopping. When looking in detail I discovered she didn't clean all the baseboards, she didn't clean the blinds as they were filled with dust, she didn't sweep the floor well in the laundry room, and I still found debris on the carpet where she obviously didn't do a good job vacuuming. Needless to say, my landlord wasn't pleased with the job, so I reached out to "Essence" (ELM Cleaning) to ask her to return and complete the work. She agreed that she could come back & would confirm a time. Well, she never confirmed. I called her, text her, & left a voicemail and she never returned any of them. I was extremely nice this entire time. So for her to just not respond is very unprofessional. Me and my husband had to go back to the old property & clean it ourselves. I'm so very disappointed as again I was very hopeful & even looking to hire her for our new home if all went well. Save your time. Using her will just cost you extra money.
