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.

Just hired them to clean a portion of my house as the first cleaners that I hired (not through Thumbtack) did not complete the job and I wanted to compare the work of 2 cleaners. Maxi House cleaner did a better job and I will hire them for the monthly job moving forward.

Karen is the best! Just hired her for the first time yesterday to clean my house. She is very punctual, and no job seems too hard for her! She is a master cleaner and will stay until the job is complete ..even if it takes ALL day. Very thorough and all at a reasonable cost! I am planning on using Karen to clean my house from now on. VERY pleased

What an incredible job they did to get our house move in ready. The previous owners had several animals and the house needed a deep clean. From the fridge, windows, oven, bathrooms, and floors...everything was sparkling clean! They were very communicative and kind people. I couldn’t be happier and will definitely be hiring them in the future. Highly recommend!

We hired JMP Cleaning on very short notice because I’m selling my house and it needed a deep clean for an open house. They went out of their way to accomodate my schedule and they did the most phenomenal job on an 1888 house! It looks like new! The attention to detail was unbelievable. The job they did made me question my decision to sell! :) I’ve hired a lot of cleaners through the years...all I can say is you will not be disappointed! I took a gamble and it paid off. Thank you JMP team for your amazing work and kindness. My realtor is hiring JMP for her house and recommending to clients...need I say more! Such a blessing today!

Cancelled the first scheduled cleaning because of a sick child. No problem. Never showed for the rescheduled cleaning. Said their car was broken down on the side of the road but never bothered to text us to say they would not be coming. Third time’s the charm? Nope. Never showed. I texted asking for an update 20 minutes after their scheduled arrival time. They replied 85 minutes later saying they would be here in 20 minutes. Never showed. 2.5 hours later they texted to say they were done with the odd thing to claim since they never showed up. They then claimed to have gone to the wrong house and cleaned there... So, best case is some random house had strangers appear out of the blue to clean it.More likely I rearranged my schedule three times for these people, waited around hours with little to no communication, and still don’t have a clean house.

Veronica of WorkZone General Services did an excellent job. Best cleaning I've seen in a long time. Very meticulous and thorough. Her rates were reasonable, especially given the cleaning she did. My previous house cleaner complained about my pets. Veronica quietly vacuumed the sofa to clean the cat hair, turning each pillow to get all sides. Very professional attitude. Much appreciated.

Wow! Cunha’s housecleaning did an AMAZING job. They were super easy to communicate with from the very beginning. She didn’t mind coming out to give me an estimate and was able to fit me in quickly. They showed up a few minutes early and got right to work. The whole house smells good and is SO clean. I even saw them moving beds to clean the baseboards. I’m super impressed and very grateful to have found them! Highly recommended!
