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 much is a house cleaning?

The national average cost for house cleaning ranges between $25 and $50 per hour, per cleaner. However, the cost of house cleaning services near you might be different.

House cleaning prices vary based on how many square feet your home is, how dirty your house gets and how often the cleaning service comes. And, prices can be lower in areas with a lower cost of living, higher in big cities or affluent regions.

Some companies charge a set amount — such as 5 cents — per square foot, with a minimum amount, such as $100. You may save money by increasing the frequency of your house cleaning visits. Often a company will charge you less per cleaning when you schedule more cleanings per month. The cost advantage rewards your loyalty, and also reflects the fact that more frequent cleanings make it easier to maintain a high level of cleanliness in your home. A housecleaning service may charge more for the first visit or for one-time services than for recurring cleanings.

Reviews for Richmond house cleaners

Crase & Company is absolutely top-notch. From the time I reached out for a quote to the time they showed up, Jessica was communicative, responsive and prompt. She and her team were professional and did wonders with our house that we recently bought that had been sitting empty for the past year. She made it sparkle like new. If you are looking for a high quality cleaning service for any of your cleaning needs, you will not go wrong with Crase & Company. Not only do they do wonderful work, but they are all so pleasant. It was a joy doing business with them! Will definitely use them again!!

I CANNOT say ENOUGH good things about this company!!!! Not only did they jump at the chance to come for a last minute (3 days away) deep/move out clean, but they drove an hour to get to me! But the most important part, the quality of the cleaning and the professionalism and friendliness of this team (there were 4) was ABOVE and BEYOND. Truly. If a house could sparkle, it would've been sparkling! And all of them were so upbeat, friendly, and HELPFUL. I had lived in this house for 2.5 years and, I'll be honest, I wasn't the best housekeeper. They definitely had their work cut out for them. But their top to bottom process and attention to detail was top notch. They got there just as my movers were finished and there were some items I had still scattered about that I was to move myself, and they saw how exhausted and hurting I was and helped me get it all to one place in the garage so I could load it into my car and the truck. And sweet, sweet Brian even helped load some of it. I TRULY couldn't have finished my move without them! In a month or two, once my work steadies, I will be contacting them again for regular cleaning. THANKS AGAIN GUYS! YOU'RE TRULY THE BEST!!!!!!

EXCELLENT. I came to Indiana to sell my mom and dad‘s house. Gosh these ladies worked so hard, and they were so thorough. (I wish I could take them back with me to Atlanta!) I needed a specific order of things done (paint prep first, then a second surface cleaning right before listing for sale). They were flexible and split the work up for me, even though it made them do two trips.
