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.

Glow Cleaning was very excited about cleaning my family house to sell. It was an ambitious task that had been left undone for years. Monica and her staff spent a very long, hard day bringing the house up to presentable standards to put on the market for sale. Thank you, Monica !

I needed a house cleaning on a really short notice. It was Sunday and the apartment where me and my fiancé were moving into were a mess... Luckily we found Nilceia with Conolly’s Cleaning Service. She was very polite and professional and was able to take the job on a REALLY short notice. Once she replied to my initial request she was able to come a couple hours later as promised. She did an AMAZING job! Apartments were crispy clean with a fresh scent! Saved me and my fiancée a ton of effort and nerves. Thank you so much! Would definately recommend her services to everyone!

Everything about hiring Alex was great! I was struggling to find comfort in hiring a house cleaner, but she made it completely worth it. My bathrooms were left sparkling along w everything else. I especially loved how she strategically placed things she could decorate such as blankets, towels, toilet paper. Thank you again Alex!

If I could give 0 stars, I would! I booked for weekend monthly cleanings with MRK and today was the first appointment. When booking the appointment, MRK asked for 2pm. I asked for earlier but she could not accommodate which was fine, I planned my day around our 2pm appointment. Today on the day of our appointment, she texted me at 4 in the morning asking if she could come at 8am because her other house canceled. I saw the message when she sent the second asking if she could come at 10. I told her I was trying to move some things around in my day. She then said today wouldn’t work at all and that she would come Tuesday. I told her I needed what we agreed on which was2pm today and then she said 2pm was too late and that we should cancel. Long story short, she proceeded to send me screenshots of how far my home is from hers and that she didn’t think monthly cleanings were going to work at all. I told her how unprofessional this was and that I’ve spent so much time looking for a cleaner and finally found one, waited for her to be available, all for this! I also told her I would be posting a review and then she replied she could come right now!!! Worst experience ever. Will not be booking with MRK and will find someone else.

Thumbtack Customer
I hired him because of all the reviews online which I'm starting to question because I did not have a good experience. He lied to me about the price and ended up charging me double on what we agreed on. Then he argued with me about the conversation when had on Thumbtack about the agreed amount to only be proven wrong once he uploaded it on his phone then his response was "oh sorry I didn't get that notification" although he responded to it!!! I paid more than planned to just end the argument because I had to get back to work. On top of that he asked me to help move his equipment around and to use my bleach because he said he forgot his. I stood very calm and tried to talk to him before he left to give him my feedback but his response was "have you seen my reviews?" I wouldn't hire him but if you decide to I would make sure you have him clearly state what he's charging you for and write it down. I regret the whole experience and I wasted money on poor service and he barely anything cleaned. Now i have to go and clean the rest of the house.
