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.

I had a move in clean for a empty house. Priscilla arrived early, which was nice.They cleaned large house top to bottom, including basement, windows, baseboards. I was very satisfied that they were able to clean despite the fact we had started moving items into house. They brought their cleaning supplies, and had the house smelling fresh, including basement. Windows, mirrors were excellent. If they had one more person, I think all the kitchen and bathroom cabinets shelves could have been cleaned. But they did a great job and I gave extra because it was a big job.

A great job was done on the areas that were cleaned, but I have white trim in my house and it was left untouched. I was disappointed by that, but everything else was fine.

Iwona and her team were amazing, I am an out of state real estate investor who needed a home cleaned so I could list the property for sale. WOW what a job they did, they even cleaned the inside of the window sills and the TOPS of the cabinets to perfection. Every inch of the house is spotless! Best home clean in over 200 flips, amazing.

Grace and her team were thorough professionals who came to help us with a move-out cleaning, on very short notice. They worked efficiently and effectively, and left the house in good order. Bonus points for communicating quickly and well. Recommended!

My husband and I hired D.A.S.K Cleaning Services for a deep clean because we were putting our house on the market. We have never had our professional cleaned before, but were excited to have it cleaned. We came home and were disappointed to see that my home certainly wasn't cleaned the way we hoped A few examples were that the kitchen floor didn't look like it was cleaned, stuff still in the kitchen strainer, downstairs floor was still dirty, and a few other things. I did call when we got home and shared my concern. They offered to come back and address the issues I shared, but I decided to do it myself because we were on a timeline. Tanya did offer to schedule another cleaning, but my husband and I decided not to.

We hired Mirsada to do a deep clean of our whole house. It was a huge project but she absolutely delivered. She gave me a quote prior to coming and she was here ALL day being very thorough and detailed. She wasn’t rushing or making you feel uncomfortable. She was also very sweet and when my children would talk to her she would interact with them. Same with the dog. Would highly recommend her!
