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 often should you have your house cleaned?

The frequency you should have your house cleaned depends on several factors, and the best professional house cleaner can give you a rough estimate of costs so you can budget how often you need someone to clean your home. 

Daily house cleaning may be necessary if you have a home with a large number of bedrooms with young children and kids, although other homeowners may benefit from weekly house cleaning. A weekly cleaner can clean the bathroom, kitchen, do laundry, vacuum and mop. An occasional deep house cleaning is most beneficial for people who have recently renovated a home or are looking to do a spring clean.

Biweekly house cleaning. So far I have impressed with their cleaning team after their first visit. It was a "deep clean" so it cost more. If their reoccurring clean is just as good I will be a happy customer.

Tidy Geek did a fantastic job. My house is clean from top to bottom, fan blades to baseboards. They even cleaned my blinds! Communication was excellent and Kari is very professional. As a hard working single mom and nurse, it’s a huge load off to come home to a clean house and actually be able to relax. Thanks Tidy Geek! See you soon.

Who would have thought men cleaning the house would do such an awesome job but I can’t say enough great things about their work. We had them do a move out with carpet cleaning from top to bottom the house looks great. Give them a call you will not be sorry.

Carrera did an excellent job cleaning. She also allowed my daughter to "help", which entertained all of us. My wife was extremely pleased with the results and we will be having her back to clean the rest of the house.

Amazing!!!!! They cleaned stuff we thought had been cleaned before by several other companies we've used---but they obviously had not! Worked the entire time and the house looked amazing. You won't be disappointed in using them. They are GREAT!

This was a moving-in to a new house clean. Overall the service was good. They missed some spots, like under the sink and dust on the blinds. They were also late arriving for the job.

The company communicates well, is punctual, and does an amazing job making my house look, smell, and feel like a brand new new home. Prior to having them in my house, I thought I did a good job at cleaning but their work crew puts this idea to shame.

After a little scheduling mix-up, Cleaning Pros did a great job on the house. The price was very competitive for the work we received. We will use this service again and recommend it to friends.

Kellie and her crew did a great job on the daunting task of cleaning my house that hadn't been professionally done in 12 years. The price was very reasonable and they were very professional. I can't recommend them enough.

I would recommend Alphonso and Deep Down Clean to everyone. He did an exceptional job on our house and it was a JOB! He was punctual, professional, and thorough. If we weren't moving out of the area, I would definitely use him again and again!

Ishine is an excellent cleaning service I got the names all wrong . Ishine is the greatest cleaning service I've ever had and I have lived here for 8 yrs. This company is the absolute top of the line and they above and beyond what their supposed to do! Their lovely to be around always cheerful and in a good mood. They Bring their own cleaning supplies and I would trust them and do leave them at my house alone all the time and nothing is ever bothered. Trust me they are the best I've ever had and plan on keeping them a long time.

I keep a pretty clean house. When I came hoem from work it actually smelled clean!. My husband kept commenting on how much brighter everything was. I was concerned because I didn't see any reviews with pets. No worries. My kitties were fine. She was very cautious of making sure no one got out. Very timely. A delight to work with. I'm looking forward to working with Connie on a regular basis.

They were very responsive and willing to work for us. This was a large time consuming cleaning on a move out to sell the house. They worked past the time quoted, we were pleased in the detail on the very troubling areas. The price was more than fair for the job. We would consider using again if needed. Thank you!
