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.

I have a house in Lafayette that has been vacant for 9 months or so, and I live in Las Vegas. I contacted Ashley to deep clean the house for me. Smartest thing I could have done. She sent me pictures of the house before she got started, and my grandson sent me pictures after she cleaned it. The quality of her work was so amazing that I am hiring her to clean this house on a regular basis. Her work was outstanding, she was punctual, and professional. Would I recommend her? Without hesitation.

We've never had a better cleaning service! Dustin is simply awesome. The house is sparkling clean, shiny & smells so good with the essential oils she uses. I wouldn't even consider using anyone else.

Dustin did a great job on my one-time move-in house cleaning and made my house feel so new and fresh. She provided all her own cleaning equipment and supplies. She was very thorough and professional, she responds quickly to messages/phone calls, and she's such a hard worker. It's obvious Dustin loves what she does, she's good at what she does, and she's a pleasure to be around.

Dustin did an initial clean of my house today and I have to say it has never been cleaned so well. She has a very strong work ethic and was dedicated to making sure I was happy with the job all while cleaning with a smile on her face. I am so happy to have found Dustin and will be using her ongoing as my regular cleaner. Highly recommend.

Called when she was running late. Showed up and went about her business in cleaning the house. Put things back where they were which is a big plus to my wife. So far so good and have rescheduled for another cleaning. Nice lady

Tammy and her partner did a fabulous job cleaning my mom’s home. I was preparing the home to put it up for sale. Tammy was a few minutes early, had all of her equipment required and they were work horses. The worse part was the oven and as you can see from the pic it’s now spotless. I may need to contact them once more when the house is sold for a final cleaning.

MsTammy did a amazing job on our newly purchased home. The house was beautifully cleaned from the top down to the baseboards.. She was quick to respond and very reasonable with her price. I could smell how clean it was before I got inside. Super sweet lady as well. She will be coming on board for weekly or bi weekly cleanings. We will be passing her info on to everyone we know. Don’t pass her up if you’re in need, you absolutely will NOT be disappointed! Extremely grateful and thankful to have her in our lives now. Her work speaks for itself.

We hired Pam to clean a 2,500 sq ft home. She covered everything from dusting, polishing wood floors, bathrooms, kitchen, etc. in about half a day. Her price is very reasonable considering the amount she worked. Looking forward to having Pam come back every two weeks to maintain our house.

Demetria was fabulous! We needed a cleaning in a hurry and she responded with love (that is the best way I can describe it). We had to leave our home due to hurricane Laura and when I asked her she did not hesitate. She made time in her schedule so that she cleaned before we were to arrive. She knew what I needed and she sympathized and made me feel taken care of. She cleaned the house we had to move to and, it was pretty bad. It had been neglected for several months. I couldn't believe what her and her team did. I didn't even have to tell her what I wanted or needed. She knows what she is doing and that is hard to find. Thank you Demetria! You were a shining star to me that day!
