Your burning questions: answered

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.

Gabriela is great, we are glad to have her our house cleaned when we move out on 11/30/2018. She took a time to clean the house perfectly. We had already sent our cars when we were cleaning the house, and she helped us to rent a carpet cleaner from Homedepot using her car and clean the carpets in all 3 bedrooms. She charged us only reasonable extra $ for this last minute request. I would highly recommend her cleaning service whether its one time or regular. Thank you very much, Gabriela, and really appreciated your help.

I recently hired Eve Maids to do a thorough cleaning of my house. They were on time, brought their own supplies, and did a great job of cleaning. The price was excellent and I would definitely hire them again.

Mary's Cleaning Services was reasonable priced. We needed a deep clean in the house. They cleaned the wood floors and baseboards well. However, they did not clean under anything. I lifted the toaster and a pile of crumbs were there. Nothing was moved from its position. I also noticed chunks of dust still under the beds. Also, beds were made (not sure I needed to tell them). Overall, her and Clarence were very nice, but not detailed.

Elva was amazing! We've had several different people clean our house and no one came close to the deep clean she did. Most people will clean everyplace you can see, but that leaves between cushions, under furniture, etc. Elva found it all! Including on top of the fridge and places I wouldn't have even thought of!!! We have hard water, which makes cleaning the shower and kitchen extra difficult and when she was done... wow! Plan to make this a regular cleaning (if she'll have us that is).

I have a lot of stuff. They dusted around it all, which was impressive. Cleaned a very greasy and dirty toaster oven. And did a wonderful deep cleaning throughout the house, all while being pleasant and efficient. They were also understanding about my protective dog, while I was careful to keep the dog muzzled, leashed and out of their way. A wonderful experience.

We hired these ladies for our move-in clean. We were told it's a very detailed clean with all the trims cleaned, inside of the cabinets cleaned and obviously the bathrooms and floors. We were very disappointed. We didn't get much of a walk through because we arrived late, but my husband did a quick one with the manager and they didn't even clean the den with packages in it (just a few). What they did was cleaned AROUND it, the den closet wasn't clean at all. It's like they did half ass lazy job. Later on I find out, (btw this house is completely empty- it should be the easiest clean ever!) the upstairs bathroom was barely cleaned. The toilet bowl still had multiple stains in it (gross) the inside bathroom cabinets weren't cleaned either. Our patio door (inside part) had stains all over the windows. I honestly don't know what I paid them for except maybe to sweep the floors and give it a very very light clean. We also had one of our light bulbs become loose from our chandelier which Tanya happily provided us a new one. She sensed our disappointment and offered the same clean again for when we settle for $85-95 but honestly if our bathrooms can't even be clean (which I can easily clean) then I'm not going to bother dropping more money.

We have been extremely pleased with the job Dove has done(deep cleaning for two bedrooms,two bathrooms in a very short time) She is was friendly and a pleasure to work with. We felt very confident having her in our home when we are not there - which is important with our busy schedules. It’s a wonderful feeling coming home to a clean house after a long day and knowing that our limited free time can now be spent doing something we enjoy. It’s a very reasonable price for something we value!! Thank you for your services, Dovile!

Betty did an amazing job with my house! She got back to me immediately after my initial inquiry and was able to fit me in right away! They were right on time, which was greatly appreciated. They paid such attention to detail that I have not experienced with a cleaning service before. I was shocked with the thoroughness of their work with their cost being as it is. Thankfully I finally found a service that I trust and value to use on a regular basis now. Thanks again, Betty!

The two ladies who came to my home were pleasant, professional and worked hard. The products they used were good for the job, and their equipment adequate. This was the first time I have used any kind of cleaning service, so my expectations may be different from others. The ladies allowed me as much time as I wanted to review their work when completed, and they offered to do additional areas of the house for which I had not originally scheduled. I would hire them again.
