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. 

How much does it cost to deep clean a house?

Deep cleaning a house goes beyond the surface level to clear out the dust, grime and gunk that’s collecting on the fan blades, hiding in the blinds, and built up inside the refrigerator drawers. Deep cleaning of a home or apartment costs more than regular house cleaning because it takes more time, effort, and cleaning products. You may choose to have a deep cleaning once or several times a year in addition to your standard cleaning services. You may have a one-time deep cleaning to prepare for company or to clean after a house party. Companies may charge an hourly rate or a price per square foot, or may offer you a flat rate after they have visited your home and estimated work time. The national average house cleaning price is $110-$150, with rates ranging higher for deep-cleaning services. Here are some examples of how a company may calculate their deep-cleaning prices:

  • 10 cents per square foot (compared with 5 cents per square foot for standard house cleaning).
  • $300 for a 3,000-square-foot home.
  • $25 per hour per worker for deep-cleaning services.

How do I choose the best house cleaning service?

When searching for the best house cleaning service near you, consider the depth of your cleaning needs, your budget and the size and condition of your home. Read reviews from verified customers of any cleaning service that you’re looking to hire. Also, check out the reviewers’ photos and do background checks on reviewers to ensure they’re not employed by established cleaning firms or maid agencies.

Reviews for New Orleans house cleaners
Lauren T.
Scentsations did an AMAZING job cleaning the house I’d been renting. They asked that we have a walk through before scheduling the cleaning during which they asked several questions to ensure they cleaned it to the desired level. I foresee getting my full deposit back in large part of how well Scentsations cleaned the house. I will definitely hire them again to clean my new house and recommend them to everyone.

My wife spent most of the day cleaning our house because she forgot Ana was coming the next day. Ana and her helper spent over 4 hours cleaning things we didn’t know needed to be cleaned or could be cleaned. Our house has never been cleaner! Would definitely recommend.

Had a great house cleaning. I wanted a thorough deep cleaning of my house to get through the covid quarantine and what I got was beyond what I expected. Not only was every surface cleaned, it was done in record time for my house. There was also great communication so I expect any cleaning request you have can be met. Without a doubt going to be a returning customer. Thanks so much for the cleaning and helping during social distancing times!!

Stephanie was amazing! She cleaned our entire house for a very reasonable price and on relatively short notice. She brings all of her own supplies and was open to using “cleancleaning products in the house. I was very happy with the results and will definitely be using her again in the future.

Ridja is amazing. She arrived promptly and left my house like new. The best house cleaning and attention to detail. Would recommend to anyone!
Eric J.
She did not contact me prior to showing up to do the job thus part of my house remained locked and not cleaned. Quote was for a whole house they only had to clean kitchen dining room and bedroom. They did not fully clean the bedroom and left baseboards not cleaned. Wasted time that could have been spent doing this socializing with my mother. Disappointed

My living room ceiling fell in recently. After I had the sheetrock work done, my house was full of dust and debris. I hired Horne’s for a deep cleaning. Tomika and Ashley did a wonderful job cleaning my home! I will definitely be calling them for my future house cleaning needs.

Great job in cleaning my house (especially the freezer and stove). My house has high ceilings. I requested that the light fixtures be clean. They brought a ladder and took care of it (didn't attempt to throw an extra charge for it either). Will definitely use them again.

We've had one cleaning from Rosa and crew so far, but their cleaning is head and shoulders above the others we've tried. Such a relief to come home to a clean house every so often. Thanks, Rosa.

Ridja did a great job cleaning my house after construction and renovations. Everything was dust-free after her visit and she continuously had me check her work to make sure it was what I wanted. I recommend hiring Ridja for any type of house cleaning.
