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. 

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?

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.

Norma and Araceli did an amazing job on the house. They did a move in cleaning on short notice. Felt, looked and smelled clean as soon as I walked into the house. Thank you again for the great service!!

The experience was beyond expectations and was the best value out there. They only did not clean the fridge and oven but mopped and cleaned behind it. The house was spotless.

The “cleaning” service offered was not as promised. Services were not completed and my house was not cleaned as advertised. Even after multiple visits (because areas that the cleaning crew worked on were not even cleaned-so they had to come back to clean), the cleaning was not satisfactory and areas were left dusty and spotty and dirty. These pictures were taken after the “final” cleaning and owner did the cleaning himself. He told me all the windows and tracks were cleaned and all the cobwebs removed from the house. Very disappointing service and cost was too high compared to results.

Agreed to a deep clean on a 2000 sq ft house and did not fulfill majority of the agreed upon items which we spoke about at length (shutters, baseboards, lights, fans) Didn’t clean 2nd full bathroom, and other basic cleaning such as dusting under and around desk items such as keyboards, tissue boxes, wiping down the front of fridge, etc… after paying 325 for a small house, a basic clean was better then what this team of two did. (Was promised 3 cleaners, only 2 showed up.). House had been maintained by another cleaning company every other week so this was not a house that was in complete disarray as it had normal cleaning done 1 week prior. I did not inspect every single room prior to them leaving but just a few places I did check she had to clean upon my quick spot check fixture not dusted and coffee maker not wiped down. There are many wonderful cleaning teams, this one is not one of them.

I truly appreciated the kindness and services cleaning our house by MK. The crew of four were very polite and cleaned most things expected in our house. I truly appreciated them also cleaning the outside of some of our windows when I requested them to do so very last minute. Their price was very fair and the windows look great.

House cleaning services from Dora Sparkle was an excellent choice on my part, (pat on my back) She did an excellent job and was quick, she cleaned my oven and stove to where it looks like a new one now, it is 25 years old. I have scheduled Dora to clean my house on a monthly basis. If you are looking for a quick, reasonably priced and thorough cleaning services, don't pass up Dora.

They did an amazing job both times they've come to our home. With three boys and a crazy schedule it is hard to keep the house really clean. March is spring break season and that meant out of town guests. So five weeks ago we had the house deep cleaned. Bathrooms and the kitchen sparkled, and bedrooms were dust free and clean. Today, 13 house guests later, Dora has come again to make our home clean and sparkly. I appreciate the attention given to the oven and ceiling fans. We will see them again soon.

I like her take charge attitude. She came in with a crew and had the whole house clean in no time.

Hired for a move out cleaning. It was at night. The house was vacant. I asked them to clean the ceiling fans which is a typical thing for a cleaning. Left Them a ladder. Didn’t clean the fans. The landlord said she doesn’t believe I even had it cleaned. Have to pay someone else $200 more dollars to clean!
