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.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a house cleaner when social distancing?

If you hire a house cleaner to clean the inside of your home, do not make physical contact. Stay at least 6 feet apart at all times, sanitize any surfaces after cleaning and wash your hands thoroughly. Exchange all payments digitally instead of with cash. When contacting a house cleaner, put a plan in place to ensure everyone's safety.

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.

Should I hire a move-out cleaning service or do it myself?

You may benefit from hiring a professional move-out cleaning service, depending on your budget, time frame and whether you will be getting a deposit back. Hiring a cleaning service takes the stress out of your move. But if you’ve had your house regularly deep-cleaned, or if your landlord will charge you for cleaning anyway, you can save costs by DIY-ing it.

How long does it take to clean a house professionally?

Generally, getting your house cleaned professionally can take several hours. The time it takes for house cleaners to complete their job depends on the size of your home, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms you have, the type of service you require and the condition of your house. It also might depend on how many employees are cleaning and the supplies they are using. If you get recurring cleaning services, the first visit might take a bit longer than the subsequent visits. 

When choosing the best house cleaner for you, ask for an estimate about how long their services will take.

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.

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.

A Touch of the South cleaning did an exceptional job on my house. They arrived on time, and worked steadily for one half hour past the allotted time. My house looked great! I plan to continue using them to clean my house on a regular basis. Very pleased!

North Indiana Cleaning did a wonderful job cleaning our house. Everything was so clean. They worked hard and were very polite. My husband said that the house looked so good that we should not use it and just look at it. And he never notices these things. Do I can definitely recommend North Indiana Cleaning

I'm a super busy person so it was time to get someone in to clean while I organize in my "spare time". The first cleaning they did as much as they could but needed more time so they recommended a deep cleaning. On the next visit, they did a 4-hour deep cleaning and cleaned things I know I never did in 19 years! I will be using them going forward on a more continual basis as I organize other rooms in my house and leave the cleaning to the professionals. I'm glad to have found Michiana Sanitation Specialists!

Today was my first experience with Michiana Sanitation Services and I couldn't be more pleased. Not only was I given an appointment within a couple of days after I called, but they also went out of their way to give me the time slot that I preferred. The two ladies arrived right on time. They were friendly, hard-working, and left my house sparkling clean. I will definitely use Michiana Sanitation Services any time I need some cleaning and organizing. Highly recommend!

This was my first time ever hiring a cleaning service and Joyce and Juana showed up right at 10:30am on the dot. I answered a couple of questions, and when I returned home, let me tell you they did a fantastic job! The house smelled so clean and the air was fresh, and they just did an incredible job on my 5,000 sq ft home (no easy feat!). I have already reached out to schedule them on a recurring ongoing basis. I hope everyone has as great of an experience as I did!

To whom it may concern (especially students living off campus), I did not see a review from a Notre Dame student on here when I was searching for a cleaning service so that's one of the reasons I'm leaving this review to let you all know about this hidden gem that is "Amy's Cleaning". Amy's Cleaning has been great thus far. Both her and her sister have done a phenomenal job showing up on time, communicating any possible concern, and going above and beyond expectations for myself and my 4 housemates. As busy Juniors at Notre Dame, it has been great to be able to count on their flexibility. 10/10 would recommend to whoever. Already referred them to other friends. They have been trustworthy, will lock up when they leave, and leave the house absolutely spotless. It's honestly a no brainer if you're looking for a cleaning service in the South Bend area. We currently have them coming every other week on Mondays. I don't know if there's a way to contact me through email on this Thumbtack website or anything but if you somehow can i have no problem talking in more depth about it.
