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 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.

I was very happy with the cleaning. She was very co-operative and cleaned the house very nicely.She was 1 hour late though, but overall she was very good and nice to talk to. I will hire her again for regular cleaning. Her rates are affordable too.

Mrs. Galvez is excellent. She is very responsive on text messaging/thumbtack. She cleaned our house for the first time Friday. She is very efficient, professional, and friendly. To our surprise she even got along well with our cats. She did a great job & I am looking forward to keeping her biweekly. Her price was also better than the other house cleaners.

The team did a REALLY thorough job. Our house looks and smells amazing. I appreciate the quick response for our last minute request. I like that they supply all the cleaning products. Everything will look awesome for our graduation party tomorrow!

I ordered Deep Cleaning for $273. Two people arrived. One worked 2 hours and the other barely 1 hour. They did not clean under small area rugs or around the perimeters of rooms. The floors were not well cleaned in any room of the house with evidence of lint and dirt particles still remaining. I'm certain that the most of the hardwood and most of the ceramic time was not touched. Surfaces in bathrooms were not well cleaned. The base of the Keurig was untouched. When confronted about the shabby job, J was unapologetic - insisted that I pay the entire fee or he would call the police. Needless to say - I will never hire this company again. Beware!

What a disappointment...especially for what I paid for! I requested a move-in cleaning months in advance. Communication was great up until the day of. The actual cleaning was TERRIBLE. Jeremiah (the owner?) estimated 3-4 hours. During that time frame, he and his partner took a "lunch break" in between, and I observed Jeremiah taking several breaks. His partner, Maria, though worked straight through. I have had many cleanings before from other companies, and the cleaning crews typically work straight through non-stop and WELL. Not with Jeremiah. Secondly, the cleaning was POOR! Because this was a move-in cleaning, he verbally told me that he would be cleaning the inside of the cabinets. I ran my hands across several RANDOM drawers and cabinets around the house and disgusting! I found hair in the drawers and lots of remaining dust! I will gladly send a picture of one of the dirty drawers, if requested, because it won't upload on here. I am irritated that I have to now go back and clean the inside of every drawer and cabinet in the house. The vacuuming was a joke because my husband still found random things on the floors and corners...speaking of corners, those weren't taken care of thoroughly either. I still found spiderwebs. To top if off, a used toilet bowl brush was left in the guest bathroom sink just chilling. When I got to the master bathroom toilet, they placed the used toilet bowl brush on the window sill and when I picked it up, the sill was soaking wet! Gross! Although I wasn't home the entire time, the cable guy was there. After Jeremiah and his helper left, the cable guy made a comment to me saying, "THAT is a move-in cleaning?" I nervously laughed it off. Once I got a closer look though, he was absolutely right. At this point, I want some of my money back for this lack of good service. The only part of the house that I physically saw well done were the mopped floors. I ended up writing a check straight to 'Jeremiah Montague' not 'Eco Home Services.' This makes me question if this 'company' is even legitimate.
