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.

I just came home and my house was spotless! Best feeling in the world. I am extremely particular about my cleaning too and they superseded my expectations. Nice to know that I don't have to worry about cleaning on my day off.

I enjoyed meeting Amy today. She arrived right on time for our first walk-thru. She will start cleaning my house next week. I look forward to working with her.

Casandra did a great job. Her and her staff were very professional upon our first meeting. I could tell immediately when I came home that my house had been cleaned. It smelled amazing. We look forward to having her back.

They arrived an hour early. That thru me off a bit. This was their very first visit and I wasn't completely prepared for them to start cleaning yet. I had to take my son to his grandmothers and come back and pick up toys and such. As I was on my way back, Cassandra told me they were already at my home. So, I felt rushed to get prepared for the visit. A deep cleaning was done. We did a real quick walk thru before they left and I didn't notice anything that was off. Next time I will take a little more time because after everyone was gone, I gradually discovered things that were missed and saw some other things that were great! The bath tub-shower, kitchen cabinets, microwave, mini table, and large trinket shelf was spotless. Everything smelled clean. They did a good job in the living room with all the crazy leaves I had from our indoor trees. I'm not sure if they ran out of time, but several obvious things were missed: the bathroom floor and rugs, the kitchen floor was not done thoroughly and the pie saver shelf was missed,the large kitchen table was not dusted, fingerprints on a large mirror, vacuuming wasn't done thoroughly thru out the house. I had to go around and clean those things after they left. They did great with the parts that were cleaned, but I couldn't understand how they could miss so many things with 5 people working. Perhaps they ran out of time or needed to spend a little more time or need to get the routine down. It was a decent amount of money to pay for a job not completed. I would like to see how things turn out next time and from there I will decided if I can keep the service. I realize that sometimes a routine needs to be established for a job to be thoroughly done. I do appreciated what they did. I know there was some hard work, but I can't go around and clean up after someone has cleaned.
