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.

TMS helped us to clean the house this Saturday. We are very impressed by their work. Their guys are working hard and professionally. The work quality is really high and our house looks very clean after the move in clean. Their guys arrived in time especially considering the project was scheduled on the weekend. The price is reasonable comparing their work. We are satisfied of their work and expect to have the chance get their their help in future.

Karen exceeded my expectations on a deep clean of our home. She got out tough tub stains that I couldn't get out, left the house shining and smelling great! She even made the kids' beds! She was very responsive and punctual with her arrival. The cost was very reasonable. I would highly recommend for any home cleaning!

These are amazing, above and beyond cleaners at an amazing price. You’re crazy if you don’t pick them. They did my whole house for much less than anyone else. They are polite and helpful and talented at what they do. Do yourself a favor and hire Nay’s. You won’t be disappointed!

I did not like the deep cleaning job done by "Ivete's Cleaning company" that was started. Some of the things that really bothered me where that important items were broken, I had requested that they use their own cleaning supplies and instead they used a lot of mine, also items are missing from the house! We have searched in every room high and low even in the garbage and cannot find the items. Although we did find a lot of good items that should not have been thrown away in the garbage, shoved under a whole bunch of other stuff. It looked like they were trying to hide the evidence of them breaking items and throwing things away that shouldn't have been, like electronics and other important family heirlooms! I will never recommend "Ivete's Cleaning company" to anyone! I even had a different company owner (who is a real professional) look at my home to see what I was requesting for a cleaning job to be done and the professional did point out that they were not well equipped for the job and more than half of it was not completed as I had requested. The professional even pointed out that "Ivete's Cleaning company" wasn't even cleaning the cobwebs that were in plain sight or the Dust as well that was in plain sight. I was strongly upset when I found out all these negative things happened in my home while I was in the home and around the outside of my home! I am very frustrated that I could not get my money back. I am also very upset that after I had told them not to use any of my cleaning supplies and garbage bags they still used some of my most expensive cleaning supplies. My husband is also informed me that they did not put the refrigerator back the way they found it. The racks were put in backwards the drawers were broken the refrigerator door was not even cleaned at all. I had already given them all the money up front, which was more than we had originally agreed on. I do believe that actually was a malfunction in the app because I had requested the refrigerator, windows and oven be cleaned. Unfortunately when the group showed up it was a struggle to communicate and also the things I requested we're not posted on their end. So I do blame the app for not registering my request for the refrigerator, oven and windows to be cleaned. If I could I would report "Ivete's Cleaning company" to this app and suggest that "Ivete's Cleaning company" no longer be working with this app!
