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.

Reviews for O Fallon house cleaners

Professional team showed up punctually, was able to clean the house thoroughly prior to us staging and listing our house. It looked fabulous, and our house sold in 1 day!

Britt responded almost immediately to my request for someone to clean my house. I had to reschedule due to unforeseen circumstances and Britt willingly came on a Saturday to meet my deadline. She and Ashley did an excellent job cleaning every corner of a fairly large house. I highly recommend Balicki cleaning to anyone looking for a top notch, professional cleaning crew.

Mary and her son were awesome and cleaned the whole house. Communicating with her was easy and she understood all of our needs. I’m so grateful that she could fit me in on short notice. Highly recommend!

Expect to be underwhelmed. Unfortunately, in my haste to review her work per her request, I wrote my initial review much too soon, particularly after I had her clean 4 missed items in the kitchen area alone. My fault. Otherwise, the house looked good on the surface. However, I began to notice dirty/dusty areas during the day. Then, I began to check other areas and was thoroughly disappointed. I texted her twice that day (17 Nov) about my concerns. She apologized and wanted to resolve the issues during a regular clean in early-Dec. I sent her a list of over 20 areas that she didn't clean and let her know that I shouldn't have to wait over 2 weeks, after paying $325 for this deep clean. She apologized, implied that it was my fault, but said she'd try to squeeze me in. After not hearing from her, I sent the pics that I'd taken on the 17th and requested a partial refund. Again, she apologized, told me she was busy, and implied that her poor quality of work was my fault simply because I didn't see all these things before she left. I again explained what she failed to properly clean and requested a partial refund. I heard no more from her after 23 Nov. In summary, give your house the White Glove test prior to her leaving, regardless of how long it takes.

While Ashley did acccomodate a last minute request to clean my mothers home, I found that after three hours of work, the quality could have been better. The bathroom was spotless, but she missed some things around the house, i.e., dusting picture frames, vacuuming behind furniture, dusting knick-knacks, that I would have expected a professional to not forget. Overall, I am happy I went with Ashley, and I would probably use her again.

Brittany is super awesome. This is the 2nd time she cleaned for me and both times she did amazing. She is on time, reliable and goes on top and beyond what you told her to do. My house is somewhat cramped because we still have not put everything away from moving in but she still cleans around everything. The second time she came I met her wife and her super cute baby. Did I say cute. Seriously the cutest baby you have ever seen. Brittany and her wife are really great. Anyways, hire them they are the best, you won't be disappointed. Just don't get in the way of them still coming to me. Just kidding. Lol
