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.

The lead housekeeper walked the entire house and made specific notes about what needed special attention. Then they got to work and cleaned the house from top to bottom. A second walk thru took place before they left to ensure that we were completely satisfied. I am extremely impressed with their professionalism and that they know HOW TO CLEAN instead of a half done job. It sure makes my life easier.

I wasn't there when they cleaned. The house was not thoroughly cleaned. Several rooms were skipped. I was charged $170 and my 7 year old does a better job making the beds. Very unhappy considering the cost we paid. I highly recommend you be present when they are on site.

This was a complicated job. I hired Lisa to clean an older neighbor's house that needed a deep, deep clean. Lisa dealt with me as well as the homeowner AND the real estate agent. She was professional with all of us, but more importantly she made the home show-worthy! Her pricing was reasonable as well. I will hire her again without a doubt.

Nikita arrived on time. She was prepared and was very professional. I was excited she used green products as I have allergy issues. She cleaned my house in a timely matter as well. I will recommend her services to others. Lolita Dawson.

We hired Estefany after having numerous issues with our previous house cleaning service. Estefany was very flexible with dates and times. Additionally, we have four dogs and she was not intimated by them and had no issues working with them in the house. When I saw her final work, I couldn't have been happier. She moved and dusted everything! I highly recommend her and will continue to use her!

Came out quickly after contacting her and they did a great job! Looking forward to our regular cleaning schedule. (2018) Wanted to update as Stephanie has now been cleaning my house for 3 years. I absolutely adore her and her staff. They are reliable, trustworthy, kind to my children who are often home and they do an amazing job. My time is limited because of work and family and I don't know what I'd do without her!

Brandon was very responsive and eager to help when we needed an extra hand in order to get our house clean and ready to be photographed before listing it. He spent 7 hours at our home and didn’t take a single break. It was clear that he wanted to do things the way we wanted them done. Brandon was extremely polite and hard-working!

We cannot recommend Xtreme Cleaning enough. Hollie's communication has been timely and professional. She's been extremely flexible for us too as our work schedules are hectic. Hollie came for a "meet and greet" and walked through our entire house with my wife to talk about what she was expecting. My wife could not have been happier when she came home from the results of the first cleaning. It feels like Hollie took care of our home like it was her own. She's very reasonable on her pricing too as we did get a few quotes. We could not be happier and look forward to Hollie continuing to service our home.
