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.

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!

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.
