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.

Smile House Cleaning Service confirmed an appointment for noon on May 18th. About 15 minutes before the appointment, I received an email that the appointment needed to be cancelled because the house cleaner couldn't make it, and they would not be sending a replacement house cleaner.

Scheduled a deep clean to prepare for real estate pictures. She showed up on time and spent nine hours cleaning my home top to bottom. I’m stunned with how fantastic the place looks and how thoroughly clean everything is. Would 100% hire again for any house cleaning needs!

Maria is phenomenal! Our house was very dirty and in desperate need of a deep cleaning, and Maria was the PERFECT choice! It was a big job but she took it on like the pro she is and our house feels wonderful! We are VERY much looking forward to having Maria come clean regularly. If you need a great housecleaner, call Maria!!! She's very personable, professional, and has an incredible attention to detail. She found every little speck of dirt in every nook and cranny, and was extremely thorough. HIGHLY recommend!!

We were amazed at how sparkling clean the house was when we got home. Far exceeded our expectations! We had some major drywall work done at our house and the dust was out of hand. It’s all gone now though! Amazing! Plus, they were at our house exactly when the said they would be and stayed long enough to get this big job done, for a great price. We would love to hire Monica and Evelina again.

Aracely and her team came to my rescue when I was moving out of a house. Everything was not out yet and it was a mess. They were available the day I needed and performed a miracle! Thank you Aracely and Unique Cleaning!

Very happy with their work! Two cleaners came for approximately 2.5-3 hours to deep clean our house. Due to a combination of our water softener being broken for a couple months (leaving soap scum in faucet and shower areas), bad anemia during my pregnancy (so I had no energy to clean), and poor ventilation in our bathroom (leaving mildew in some spots), our bathroom and kitchen both needed a lot of cleaning. They did it well! One thing I would suggest is to have them add wall and baseboard cleaning/ scrubbing for the deep clean or for a small added cost. We definitely would have paid a little more for that. But we’re happy with the results and now feel ready for our new baby 😀 The value of the cleaning was good for what we received.

I scheduled a deep cleaning. Things started out great - the first room cleaned was fantastic. Then it seemed like somewhere along the line, she forgot it was a deep clean. The upstairs area was just sort of cleaned. She asked me if everything was done OK, and, though I had her clean around a toilet that hadn't even been touched, I just let her go at that point. She'd already been in my house 8 hours at that point. I still have to clean the doors, scrub the bathroom floors, wipe the baseboards, etc. And I was going through picking up stuff off my kids' bedroom floors that should have been vacuumed up (she vacuumed in there, but not well). Needless to say, I won't hire them again.

They came an hour late (and didn't call to let us know) and charged $50 more than what was quoted and would only accept cash. My husband had to leave and they said they would text pics when they were done and they didn't. I paid for window cleaning, but not all windows were done. This was supposed to be a deep clean of a house we were moving in to and I still had to sweep and mop it myself the next day.

Anna arrived on time. I walked her through the house and explained what I wanted done. She exceeded my expectations. When my husband came home he immediately noticed the stainless steel backsplash behind the stove was streak free. He also noticed the various mirrors throughout the house were also streak free. The hardwood floors were sparkling. I will be using Anna every two weeks and we discussed deep cleaning the kitchen at a later date.

It was a busy mom's dream come true! Come home from a hard day at work to a crystal clean house! I felt so pampered! My bed as well as my kids' beds were made. Plus nooks and crannies I never saw before were spotless! My hubby and I both agreed this company is fully worth every penny! Will use them as much as possible!
