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.

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 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. 

When viewing house cleaners on Thumbtack, you might see a Top Pro badge. This indicates that the service is one of the most popular and highly-rated professionals using the platform.

I can’t say enough about the team that came to my house. There were 2 more people than I anticipated but that’s because they were doing a training for new cleaners (I think). Hearing how they went through the steps of the cleaning process let me know they were really about their stuff. My house was clean and in perfect condition. From the dust on the ceiling fan to wiping cabinets — the less obvious stuff was all done. Will book again. I want that same team every time lol

We had a great experience with Think Green Cleaning. They kept me informed on what time they would arrive due heavier than normal traffic in the rain. They did an excellent job of cleaning my house. ZaLisa, the owner, even had great ideas to help keep me and my home organized. I highly recommend using Think Green Cleaning and we will definitely be using them again.

Brittany was very responsive however, her cleaners arrived 30 minutes late and sat in the car and ate their breakfast for about another 5 minutes. I wasn’t even gonna mention it to Brittany however, the young lady assigned to clean the wet areas missed quite a few spots (light fixture, behind the trash, food stain on floor, kitchen windows, top of washroom machines, etc.) My Mom was here and cleaned the areas that were missed. When Brittany called to inquire about the outcome, I advised her of the missed areas and she was suppose to reimburse a portion of the cleaning fees which never occurrred. We were in the process of prepping the house to sale and had buyers coming the very next day. I was disappointed in the fact that she did not keep her word but chalked it up due to all of the other items we had to worry about to prepare for the house showing.

Ms. Vanessa did a great job on a deep cleaning. I was moving my family into what was a rental property. I’d had lots of renovations done and the home hadn’t been cleaned in awhile. Ms. Vanessa made the house look like new. She was super personable, professional and worked hard to make sure I was pleased and my goals we discussed were met. I’ll be hiring her again for other projects.

I just purchased a home that had been vacant since July and it was a lot of cob Webs and bugs in the home. I purchased foggers and had a deep cleaning scheduled. When I moved into the home everything felt so much cleaner! It took her about 4 hours to clean the house which I thought was great I felt like she really took her time cleaning the home it made me feel better because of my newborn baby! She also came same day for me I was freaking out because I thought water would be cut off before I could transfer it and she made sure she came before the water was cut off and she called and sent pictures after her clean

I am retired Command SergeantMajor, and conducted many room and barracks inspections. These guys are the best I couldn’t have clean my house this good in two days myself. I strongly recommend them to anyone and for the value you can’t beat the price. I will have them come back every month and have already made referrals to others.

I’m always grateful when someone can help me do something that either I can’t do because I don’t know how or because I’m overwhelmed and can’t seem to get it done. The latter was the case here. I needed a deep clean in my apartment and I found C & A. Cynthia and her crew came in, saw what was needed and went above what I asked. I am ecstatic that my house is clean…smells good and is dust and cobweb free! Her rate is incredibly affordable! These ladies did a phenomenal job! Will definitely call again. Already referred a friend.

This was a very unpleasant experience. The service we requested was standard cleaning with the additional fees for fridge cleaning, windows, folding and organizing of clothing. The actual cleaners who came in were very nice but couldn’t speak English so they didn’t understand what we were asking them to do. The person who we initially spoke with on here was the one translating to them over the phone. This was very unprofessional as the person who runs the operation should have accompanied the crew to ensure that they understand everything that needs to be done after they walk through the house to see what needs to be done, so there is no misunderstanding or confusion. As they were cleaning, they skipped over A LOT of things that normally would be included in the standard cleaning ( sweeping, mopping, dusting).. for example the bathroom was cleaned but the floor mats were never moved out the way... so when I went to check there was still hair under them! I’m not sure what was translated to them because I had to actually call the owner and tell her to tell them that they were missing some stuff... even after the phone call the stuff was not completed. After they left I had to vacuum, mop, dust and wipe down countertops in the kitchen etc. They did a good job folding and cleaning the shower and tub but everything else was very subpar. I shouldn’t have to clean after you if I’m paying for your services. I definitely believe that the language barrier was a huge issue. When I expressed my concerns to the owner after they left, the response was... “oh organizing and folding is extra charge... and you told me it was 2 baskets of clothes” this was shocking to me because I already knew it was an additional charge which I was paying for.. I was asking why there was so much that wasn’t cleaned if I was asking for it to be done.. the stuff that was left uncleaned is apart of standard cleaning ( sweeping, mopping etc) even after I called to let her know, they still didn’t do it... I had to stop them before they left to ask them to mop the floor because it was still dusty! needless to say i will not rehire this crew simply from the response I received from the owner after expressing my issues. The cleaners were very sweet and I know it was just a language barrier issue but I fault the owner for this because they should’ve had someone to accompany them to explain and see what needed to be done instead of over the phone without ever seeing my house. I really hope they fix this issue or they will have many unpleasant experiences in the future. I don’t recommend giving quotes without seeing the actual home/requirements.

UNPROFESSIONAL. Beware! She scheduled with me for this morning. Came into my home with a 13 or 14 year old (no prior information about bringing a child assistant - at that age, they make messes not clean). I gave them a tour and showed them where everything is. She went to her car "for a sec" and then drove off. No word nothing. Now it was not because my house is a mess; my home has been cleaned every 2 weeks for years; plus, no pets, no kids, just one adult. She wasted my time as I could certainly have had others today. I will likely contact Thumbtack as something may come up missing. Where do they get such rude and inconsiderate persons.

So we moved into a home that should have been cleaned before we arrived but it was a complete mess! I reached out to Nikki and she responded pretty quickly with a great price and said she was available to come the next morning. She and her husband arrived and did a walk around of the house, which I just knew the price would go up seeing how much cleaning need to be done. It did not! They were amazing! Not only we’re they professional and treated our home with respect they got everything like new in just a few hours. Me and my husband were upset handling everything that comes with a new move that could go wrong and we felt like a weight was lifted off our shoulders when they were done. If this review hasn’t said it clear enough, choose them! If we ever need them again in the future we will give them a call. I’ve already recommended them to my cousin who was considering a cleaning service.

Tiffany and her team was definitely wonderful to work with. From the initial contact with the communication regarding scheduling and discussing what customized services I wanted, Tiffany exceeded 5 stars. Her team arrived very politely and friendly and immediately started working. They definitely worked together as a team and had a good strategy. Big plus was the fact that they made sure I was 100% satisfied with everything before leaving. This is my 1st time using Thumbtack for house cleaning services and I am very very very happy with the end result. Tiffany, I wish you all the very best and I will be returning!
