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.

Juliana was quick to provide a free estimate. She came that same week to clean the house and by far has been the best money spent. Will be hiring her for future cleaning without a doubt. Highly recommend her. This was my first time having someone clean our house and won’t be our last. Thank you Juliana.

Ruth was able to come clean our house same-day when another company had bailed. She was very easy to work with and sweet! I would definitely work with Ruth again!

This was the worst cleaning service! Ellen came to my home on Friday 12/29 and I paid her $180. She put dirty dishes in my dishwasher and left it there! Didn’t run it! Didn’t wash them! It’s this morning I’m looking for my stuff I see dirty pots and greasy plates. She didn’t wipe anything down! The house did not have that just clean scent! She basically rushed through the last to make sure they did 3 1/2 hrs. They fixed my twins bed and the sheets are inside out! They did not wipe down the dresser! When I contacted her this morning she said my house was messy and she needs more that 3 hours ...I told her she should have said that when she walked in!!! And ask if she was expecting to clean a clean house!! I have 3 children under 3 and work full time!! I have a lot of laundry but absolutely nothing out the ordinary and I absolutely stated I needed a deep cleaning ...There was absolute no pride in her work and I feel robbed... I don’t know if those people that wrote good reviews were friends and family but her work ethics is crap!!!

Priscilla is AMAZING! I was able to get a last minute appointment with her and she was responsive, on time, incredibly sweet, and very detail oriented. There was literally, nothing that she missed. She was thorough and worked incredibly hard to make my house look beautiful. She is my new go-to cleaning person and I look forward to having her come back.

Juliana and her team did an AMAZING job. My house is SPOTLESS! She arrived on time and got straight to work. They all put in great energy into leaving my home looking and smelling great. I would definitely recommend her as I have already sent her number to 2 of my friends. I will be contacting her again for my next cleaning.

Two very nice girls came to our home to clean an in-law apartment which hadn’t been used in three years. They were on time and got to work quickly. They went non-stop for three hours. When they were finished they asked my husband and me to take a look at what they had done. We were astonished. The place was immaculate. I am a picky housekeeper, so when I say they did an outstanding job, I really have to be impressed. I am sure I couldn’t have done a better job myself. We are getting our home ready to be sold soon. We plan to call them back to do the rest of our house. I’m sure they will do a better job than we can to get it looking it’s best.
