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.

I was super impressed with Prince Cleaning, they were prompt with getting back to me regarding scheduling with them. I was most impressed when I walked in my house after a long day of work it was delightful to come home to an exceptionally clean house l, they did an amazing job! I was with my previous cleaners for the last 6yrs and have never seen my house cleaner than yesterday. I'm happy to have hired them to continue my bi-weekly house cleaning needs and would highly recommend them!

Prince Cleaning did a "deep clean" of my house. They did a great job in all respects and I would definitely recommend them.

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.

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!

We requested the "deep clean" with fridge interior, oven, and interior window cleaning. The add-ons were completed exceptionally well, but I wouldn't say we received a "deep clean." I would define a "deep clean" as cleaning I would not do myself during normal tidying; examples would be that the floor behind the toilet was not cleaned and the shelves in the shower were also not cleaned. The couches weren't vacuumed and the entire upstairs of the house was missed. We are generally happy with the cleaning that WAS completed, but the misses are pretty glaring.

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.
