Your burning questions: answered

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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?

Firstly my friends and family will Vouch for the fact that I keep my house clean and tidy though we have 3 small dogs. My house does not smell of food or dogs as I keep up with cleaning the house Jessica and her team came in like they stormed into the house and started cleaning upstairs, that houses the bedrooms of which only the master bedroom and bathroom was used the others just needed vacuuming and straightened of the bedcovers which they did not even touch. They cleaned the bathroom and displaced everything on the countertops leaving for me to straighten. In the middle level they did not clean the office room saying I did not ask them to. The kitchen floor was not vacuumed or mopped. The hardwood floor mopping was poorly done. For all of this, they charged me $130 first time cleaning. While cleaning Ms Jessica gave me attitude saying my house was dirty which was quite upsetting but I ignored her. After they left I called and told her she did not clean the office she said I did not tell her to. So tell me folks 130 dollars is hard to earn is it so easy to just giveaway. These cleaning people have a bad attitude. The only reason I need help is because I have a torn tendon and cannot do more damage. I called in another team and they were willing and cleaned immaculately and did make the others beds which was used and for less money and admired how I kept house. So I wonder if the reviews Jessica and team got were made up by friends.

Anna and her team just cleaned our house from top to bottom and we are blown away by how good of a job they did. She responded quickly to the request for a quote, showed up right on time and came prepared to clean on the spot after the quote and did and extremely thorough job. Our house is CLEAN! They even took the time to dust my husbands massive movie collection! We are so impressed that we will surely be contacting them for future cleanings. 🙂

This review is being written more than 1/2 a year later but is still worth writing. Jose and his team did a spectacular job with cleaning my house. The best part is that I could finally see the backsplash behind the oven after trying to clean it myself.

Upon closer inspection, the "deep clean" I paid extra for was not done—I don't think the cleaner even vacuumed the entire house, as a couple days later I was still finding items under bathroom vanities, and a lot of areas were not dusted. Definitely not worth the $250 I paid.

Amazing Service! House is cleaner than when we moved it. Our dog is going through his summer shed right now. We had a lot of hair on everything. They took the time to get it all off and I have not seen hair since. We will be scheduling them for a weekly cleaning!
