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.

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.

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.

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 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.

We had him come to clean the house for a move out when we are trying to get the house ready to go on the market we were extremely unhappy with the cleaning and it didn’t look like the tiles were clean there is still spaghetti on the floor there’s dust all over everything the tubs were not touched and we ended up having to re-clean the house and when I contacted him about some kind of refund he never return my messages I feel like we wasted money paying him to clean when we had to re-clean and we are extremely unhappy that he wouldn’t return our messages

Iwona’s team was punctual, professional and amazing. I called for a deep clean because we had done a lot of recent work and the house was VERY dusty everywhere. To be fair, there was more attention needed than Iwona’s team had bargained for, but they handled it all like pros and left my house sparkling !

Sheila was very responsive and was fantastic to work with. We hired her to clean a foreclosed house we recently purchased that needed a really good scrub. She was able to get things cleaned we thought we would have to replace (like light switches) due to how filthy the previous owners had left them!! Sheila charged a fair price, and was able to accommodate our impromptu request to clean the interior of all the windows as well. So thankful for all her elbow grease getting a 4000-sq-foot house ready to be our home!!!

Having this team come in was like having a spa day for my house. I had never had a cleaning service come, but at six months pregnant, I needed a pre-nesting for baby deep cleaning. I was nervous about it being awkward, but Amanda was so easy to talk to and the team needed no oversight to do a fantastic job. They exceeded my expectations and used natural cleaning supplies which was important to me. Would definitely hire again!

Margaret showed up when she said she would, we've planned for her to come every other week. My hope and expectation is that things run the same. I was able to leave her there and we had no issue. Everything was great and it was nice to come home to a clean house that I didn't have to do( for a change) I'm glad we have her taking care of our home

She showed up two hours late. We set up a time for 4:30 and she showed up at 6:30. Cleaned everything with only water and papertowel , clogged my toilet with all the napkins she was using and throwing in there. Did not vacuum properly and when I told her I’m not happy with the job she started yelling at me and got some guy on the phone threatening to come to my house. I felt very threatened and she kept saying she shouldn’t have taken this job when no one forced her to. She came based on a mutual agreement on this app.
