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.

Nicolly and her team did an AMAZING job cleaning my house. Since being stuck at home for the last few months with three kids, and my husband and I both working the house was in desperate need of a deep clean. She responded quickly, and scheduled us the same week even though it was last minute. My house is sparkling and looks so good now!! Hire Nicolly, she’s amazing!

Neide was amazing! She showed up exactly when she said she would and cleaned the house far past my expectations. It looked cleaner than when I first moved in. She even changed her doctors appointment to work with my weird time restraints. Id hire her to come clean every 2 weeks if she was closer to my new location. 100% recommend to anyone who likes a really beautifully cleaned house.

Jessica was very responsive to my initial request. Arrived on time and went above and beyond my expectations. I had all the windows in my House replaced with high impact windows. Needless to say there was dust everywhere. Jessica cleaned not once not twice but three times over certain areas to get rid of the dust. I found my new forever house cleaner. I have already scheduled her to come back. Great work, very friendly demeanor, no communication barriers like the last house cleaners. If I could give her 10 stars I would. Thank you Mothership Cleaning Company!

Ruth and her gals do an outstanding job. I have been having my house cleaned for years, and, this is the best I have ever experienced. I had Molly Maids for many years who after awhile just cleaned what they could see. I loved coming home after Ruth and her professionals cleaned. The house was REALLY cleaned. I would give her 10 stars if I could. Thank you Ruth and I look forward to doing business with you for years to come.

This company came out to my house to clean. The first session was great I had no problem. But as the time passes they start getting sloppy. Meaning not dusting my house, they doesn't mop my floors, I have to literally tell them what wasn't done and for them to clean it on the next visit. Now to add Insult they came last week to clean and didn't mop my floor! Who does that?? I wouldn't recommend them. Maybe for the first cleaning cause they will do a great job. But nothing after that.. smh

They did a great job at cleaning those hard to reach places in my home. The cleaning job they provided motivated me to declutter and reorganize my closets, kitchen cabinets, and pantry. My house now looks and smell great!
