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. 

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.

They didn't clean plantation shutters. Basic cleaning should include dusting blinds/plantation shutters. They cleaned our 2600sq ft house in less than 2 hours. We told them so many little things to redo it. They didn't clean under the bed or couch. If they do they don't take much effort to clean it properly. They didn't clean Kitchen cabinets fully. You need to have a ladder or stool to clean cabinets to the top. That lady just cleaned the half of it because she couldn't reach to the top. Aren't they suppose to have basic things with them. I am surprised to see good reviews on there site/app.

Crystal Shine was on time & thorough. They cleaned the entire house include appliances & inside all my cabinets. She didn’t know we have well water & had a hard time cleaning the shower door to her standards. She said she had a product that would do a better job but didn’t have it with her. So she offered to come back because although she cleaned it well, it didn’t meet her standards. Excellent work. Thank you!!

Extremely disappointing experience booking LAM cleaning. Thumbtack suggested a price based on rooms/extra cleaning. However, once I got on a call with Mirsanda and gave her the square footage of the house, she doubled the price Thumbtack recommended. I told her the price was high in comparison to what I had paid in the past with others, but she assured me the cleaning would be superior/taking care to deep clean and use specific cleaning products depending on the surface. I was convinced and booked LAM one month prior to the cleaning date. Fast forward to today - two days before cleaning and Mirsanda contacted me to tell me she was AGAIN doubling the price since she looked at Zillow and saw more square footage than we discussed. I assured her the Zillow square footage was not correct and that I just went through a home inspection/had the actual square footage. She insisted she had to go by Zillow and that the addition square footage (1000 sq more) would mean doubling the price. Safe to say, I canceled LAM and rebooked with another Thumbtack Pro....who, even after I told them about the Zillow square footage report, honored the pricing Thumbtack provided AND was significantly cheaper than LAM. I have worked with many professionals on Thumbtack and have only had positive experiences. This experience with LAM cleaning? The most unprofessional experience I have ever had on Thumbtack.

I can’t say enough about this service. Because of illness the place was a mess. Ive been trying to decide whether to sell it and by something else. After it was cleaned I couldn’t believe it I walked in amd remembered why I but this house to begin with and why I loved it for the last 25years. I guess you could Say I decided to love it and not list it. They were so great-and so professional something you don’t see much of anymore. I so look forward to working with them in the future theyve got my business.
