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.

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.

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.

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. 

What are the different types of house cleaning services I can get?

There are several services offered by professional house cleaning companies, each suited for a different purpose. These services include:

  • Standard cleaning, which is a basic cleaning typically done on a weekly or monthly basis;
  • Deep cleaning, which is a detailed cleaning with more intensive work than a standard clean;
  • Move-in and move-out cleaning, which is a detailed service preparing a home for residents moving in or out;
  • Green house cleaning, which is a service that uses eco-friendly cleaning supplies and products. 

Aside from the type of cleaning services available, homeowners may also choose daily, weekly, monthly or one-time services.

How much should you tip maids or cleaning services?

Tipping between 15 and 20 percent is considered an appropriate tip for maids and house cleaners — just as it would with a barber, food delivery driver or taxi operator. During the holidays, you might want to consider tipping a bit more. 

It’s important to note that some housekeeping and maid services might include a tip within the service fee, which should be explained to you in the service contract. Talk to house cleaners in your area to find out what's included in their fees.

Rhonda did a great job deep cleaning my house. She went above and beyond to make my house sparkling clean. With a shedding dog and a baby, you can’t tell I have either one in my house!

New life cleaning responded rapidly to my request on thumbtack (actually the only 1 of 4 that responded to my request)!! They were here to clean my house within a timely manner!!! The whole house looked great when they were finished!! I was especially worried that they would not be able to clean the bathrooms very well especially the bathtub/shower but they proved me wrong!! This cleaning was used because we are moving!! If we do not sell our house in the next couple of weeks I will be calling them back!!! Also, pricing was super reasonable for the whole house!!

She did an excellent job cleaning my house. It is clear from the way she works that she has experience in cleaning, and she's got an incredible work ethic. She worked hard to clean until everything sparkled and everything smell so nice and clean. Very highly recommended.

We had a much needed deep cleaning done on our house and they were excellent! My husband even commented how much better they did than previous companies we've used. We have set up ongoing cleanings and would recommend them!

I was in tight spot, needing cleaning quickly for a family gathering. Cleaning Magic responded right away to my message and was very flexible with her scheduling. She communicated when she was on her way and arrived right on time. She thoroughly cleaned my house and was also very patient with my children and pets running around. We’ll definitely use her again!

They have cleaned my house several times now - initially a deep clean and now every 2 weeks. They do an excellent job- their attention to detail is great and I'm continually finding little extra things they did that I didn't even expect! I highly recommend them! Thank you!

I would definitely recommend Roush! This was my first time having my home professionally cleaned and they made everything super easy to understand and easy to schedule. Most importantly, they did such a great job cleaning my home. No detail was overlooked. You could tell they took pride in their work. I didn’t hire a service for the longest time because I thought nobody would clean to my standards but they treated my house like it was their own and way exceeded my expectations. I’m looking forward to having them back in a couple weeks.

Bruna was very pleasant to work with and punctual. However, I feel as if I was overcharged for services received. I asked and initially paid for a Deep Cleaning but received a basic cleaning at best. My house was not dirty, so there were things that just weren't done because of it, even on the standard cleaning list. I won't detail those items here as I already messaged Bruna about them. It was my first time hiring someone and it has left me disappointed to say the least. I didn't receive a response of any kind to my messages, however, I did send Bruna a Venmo request to refund $60, so that I can pay the once a month cleaning rate she sent instead of the deep cleaning rate. I was refunded $50. Lesson learned

Tina was 30 minutes late arriving, and cleaned for less than two hours and charged me $140. She said she was done but I had to ask her to clean the nasty stairs off and when she left I looked a little closer and she did not move most of the LR furniture out or dust under it! she did not dust around the stair-railings. She left smudged toothpaste showing on the bathroom sink; so it cost me $70 an hour more or less because she did a terrible terrible job for someone who has been doing this for 30 years especially. We asked for a move out cleaning because our house goes on the market tomorrow. She offered to come back and do what she missed but I hired another group and they were here for 2 1/2 hours and charged me another $160. That was only a few days after Tina was here so you can imagine just how bad of a job she did!
