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.

We came home to a very clean house. In addition to cleaning the areas we'd requested, they washed and dried a load of laundry. All the baseboards were dusted. Thank you AJ Cleaning!

Wonderful! I left my house in a complete mess (toys everywhere) and came back to everything clean and organized. They were faster and cheaper than an individual I used to use. Can't wait til they come back next week!

If you ever need cleaning done call Sparkle Mamas! Lynda took the interior of a house that was covered in 15 years of cigarette smoke tar and nicotine to a pristine masterpiece ready to sell! Even the insides of drawers, cabinets, closets, appliances, and the furnace closet were spotless! Not only did she come to the house to give me an accurate quote, she worked on it for twice the amount of time (and got her husband to help) to make sure that I was pleased with her work and didn't charge me an extra dime. She kept me up to date through text messaging, pictures and phone calls. It was a pleasure to work with her and her husband. I recommend her for any cleaning job you ever need! More photos to come. Thanks so much and I appreciate all of your incredible hard work!

I hired Angie for a full house cleaning. My home is about 2,500 sq ft including the basement. I hired her for basic cleaning services ( kitchen, sweep and mop all floors including basement ,bathrooms, vacuum , dust, tidy up). Angie came to the house to meet with me first so she could see what I would like done and give me a fee for the work. She was very nice and easy to talk to- seemed like someone I could trust in my home. I decided to hire Angie after talking with a few others, so we messaged and agreed to a day when she would do the cleaning. She had a day available that worked for me and my family. I was pleasantly surprised when I got home from work that day. Angie had done a wonderful job. She did the things we had agreed on, and went above and beyond. The floors were swept and mopped, the kitchen was clean and the dishes were cleaned and put away (she didn't skip the inside of microwave :) ). She dusted furniture,photos, knick knacks, and even organized two of my entertainment centers which were overflowing with dvds. She wiped off window sills and shined up all the windows and mirrors in the house. She cleaned four bathrooms to my satisfaction and even tidied up the clutter in my bedroom. The carpet was beautifully vacuumed and she even started my wax melter so my home was so inviting when I got home that evening. This was no easy task I am sure, as I have a playful pup and two cats. She tidied up my 3 yr old's toys and folded and stacked clothes and things she found lying around nice and neatly. Overall , I was very happy with the excellent job she did and her attention to detail. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a housekeeper. It was so nice to come home to a tidy home that night, I didn't know what to do with myself!!!
