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. 

What should I ask a house cleaner or maid before hiring them?

There are many questions to ask a cleaning service before you hire them to make sure they’re the right fit. These questions might include:

  • How much do you charge?
  • How do you set your prices -- per hour or per square foot? Or, do you charge a flat rate?
  • What is your past work experience? Can I see a list of references?
  • Are you accustomed to working with different home or apartment types and sizes?
  • Can you work with children or pets in the house?
  • What types of cleaning products do you use?
  • Do you bring your own cleaning supplies and products?
  • How often can you clean my home?
  • Is there anything you recommend I do (or don't do) to my home before you arrive?

How often should you have your house cleaned?

The frequency you should have your house cleaned depends on several factors, and the best professional house cleaner can give you a rough estimate of costs so you can budget how often you need someone to clean your home. 

Daily house cleaning may be necessary if you have a home with a large number of bedrooms with young children and kids, although other homeowners may benefit from weekly house cleaning. A weekly cleaner can clean the bathroom, kitchen, do laundry, vacuum and mop. An occasional deep house cleaning is most beneficial for people who have recently renovated a home or are looking to do a spring clean.

Adriana and her mom did an amazing job with a move in clean to my new house. They spent several hours cleaning a five bedroom house that had been left pretty dirty. They were right on time. The house looked pristine when they finished. Totally recommend!

Love this cleaning service! My house has never been so clean. It sparkled, seriously. Will definitely hire them again.

We just purchased a new home and wanted the house to basically be sanitized. We requested for deep cleaning services including fridge, window, and oven. The ladies that came were really nice, however the cleaning services they provided were not deep cleaning. After they left, I re-cleaned the house. I will say that my husband and I are OCD about the house being clean, so other people may not care so much, but I like everything cleaned, including door knobs and light switches which have a lot of bacteria. Overall, I think it was okay. If you are looking for someone for a weekly clean, it will be fine. No one will love your house more than you! So it is hard to find someone to care about the small details.

We Care Cleaning Company came on time with a team of cleaners to help us prepare for an open house. They were polite, respectful and did an amazing job to get our house in good shape for realtors and potential buyers. Thank you!

Our house looks and smells AMAZING! Alexa and her team did a great job deep cleaning our house today from top to bottom. I would definitely recommend and use Alexa’s Cleaning service on a monthly basis moving forward.

So I asked them to deep clean my house and I was really impressed with the response and availability. The crew shows up, they were very nice.. but really did a terrible job with cleaning my house. I asked them to clean the base boards.. and walls they said they did.. and I found dust everywhere. They said we did it again and still not great. I already have a very clean house so deep cleaning would have been super easy.. but they didn’t even have a vacuum that worked. So I reached out to the owner and she then never responded to make it right. Really disappointed in the way this one turned out especially for the price and my regular house cleaner only charges 100 and does a better job.

They did a great job! Showed up on time, the house was very clean, they worked hard.
