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. 

When viewing house cleaners on Thumbtack, you might see a Top Pro badge. This indicates that the service is one of the most popular and highly-rated professionals using the platform.

Gabriela and her teammate, Maani, did a deep cleaning for my house after 4 months of our move. The house is old and can’t get real clean without paying attention to details. They truly ARE SOT-ON! I’m very picky when it comes to cleaning my kitchen and bathrooms and I c

I have a cleaning crew come twice a month for my house, but I noticed certain areas like baseboards and corners didn't look that great. I didn't ask for a deep clean. Just a typically cleaning but to focus on baseboards and corners since my current cleaning ladies seem to miss that. Well I could say is WOW!!! These girls are amazing. You would think I asked for a deep clean. I thought my house was clean until I had them. Nothing was skipped. Highly recommend!

I had most of my house cleaned. Two very nice women came, and they worked hard to clean 3 levels of the 4 in my home. They were cheerful and focused. It had been months since my whole house had been dusted, and today it all sparkles. I'll definitely have them come again.

Iwona and her colleague Magda did an incredible job cleaning our house! We moved in 3 weeks ago and had hired move-in cleaners but they did a terrible job. Iwona and Magda did the job right. They're thorough and they care. I've hired various cleaners in the city and have been disappointed by almost all of them. Iwona is one of the few good ones! Her prices are very fair especially for the great work she does. We are going to have her team come regularly and are so happy we found her!

Very responsive, easy to schedule, and communication was excellent. I was disappointed with my "deep cleaning" as we scoured the house the day before. I had hoped they would go above and beyond what we did. My three hour deep clean turned into two hours and we had to go over the oven again. We paid for the refrigerator but it was not done. I selected this company based on their reviews...not sure I would recommend.

Sanela was great to work with! I needed her to come the next day, which was a Friday at 4:00. In Chicagoland that is not easy! She made it happen! She cleaned the house from top to bottom and it looked wonderful. She was so kind, professional, and fun to talk to! I highly recommend Sanela.

I was looking for a company that could help me get a recently remodeled house cleaned and ready for renting. After finding a few options online, I filled out the Thumbtack form for Dove who had good reviews. Being a remodel, there was dust pretty much everywhere so I knew it was going to take longer than typical, and I selected the "deep cleaning" option. I was surprised to get a nearly immediate response back. She was very flexible on scheduling and was able to squeeze my job in within a couple days. On the day of the cleaning, we met and reviewed the scope of the job. This is a critical step as I knew I wanted certain things to be worked on and certain things not so much. I could see she was detailed oriented as she spotted and commented on various issues. She gave me her opinion of the time needed. The price was hourly and covered two people, herself and another employee. She also brought all her own supplies. Considering the quality of the clean, I consider it very fair. I have had other cleaning services that were cheaper but did only a superficial job of visible areas only. To me, it is valuable to have a service that will thoroughly clean my rentals, helping me attract quality tenants. The results were far better than expected. The wood trim was clean and shiny, all the floors were spotless, the carpet perfect. I did not find anything that was missed. The sinks, cabinets, doors, everything was clean. Dove does not handle windows which may not seem logical but I know that to do windows well, you need to do inside, outside, the screens, track, etc.. Its a job in itself which is why Dove has a colleague who can handle them as a separate item. In my case, I had already hired someone to powerwash the exterior and do the windows. Dove is the owners name as well as the company name. She was super responsive, energetic, friendly, flexible and thorough. I highly recommend Dove and her company and will contact her for my future needs.
