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. 

When viewing house cleaners on Thumbtack, you might see a Top Pro badge. This indicates that the service is one of the most popular and highly-rated professionals using the platform.

Andrea and her team did a phenomenal job cleaning my place. They went above and beyond for this deep cleaning to organize my house including unpacking, clothes folding, and general reordering. Andrea’s very friendly and personable and got along great with my dog. I highly recommend her service and plan to use her in the future.

The Selda sisters are great. They personally came to look at my house to be better able to pair me with a cleaner and gave me an excellent price. They started as soon as I wanted, and the job was really meticulously and professionally done. I will hire regularly!

Our house is the cleanest it has been since moving in after VM cleaning came. Everything looks and smells amazing. Venerable was wonderful to work with and her team was extremely professional. We really appreciate the attention to detail VM put in and highly recommend working with them!

Ana’s work was amazing. My bathroom has NEVER been cleaner. She even scrubbed my baseboards! My sink, fridge and stove are glistening (didn’t know that was possible). She was super thorough and moved fast. My boyfriend was home at the time, but I wish I was here so I could watch, and then buy all the same cleaning products. House smells great! Will definitely use her again.

Camilla and Chris are very responsive and easy to work with. They are extremely thorough cleaners, at that right balance that’s so hard to find with cleaning people where they’re not going through to the extent that a cleaning person is too detailed and ends up throwing out important receipts and papers but also not like those who leave dust where it just shouldn’t be. They got everything done quickly. I have seasonal depression with hoarder tendencies so the house was BAD but they were not daunted and not at all judgmental. Very understanding and able to tackle it all. Price was very reasonable especially for a 2 person team. Highly recommend.

This was my first time getting my house cleaned and I'm thrilled with the results!! Five rooms were cleaned beautifully and my bathroom and kitchen (which I requested a deep scrub down for) have never looked better. My old oven even looks brand new! All my sinks are also back in pristine condition. The ladies who came were extremely professional and nice, and didn't mind when my dog would periodically decide to go investigate what was going on. I'll definitely be using their services again!

Francis and his partner were very helpful. I broke my wrist ans couldnt keep up with the household chores. They showed up on time and fully equipped with what the’d need. They cleaned the house top to bottom beautifully and even were able to do some dishes and fold laundry for me! (Two things i couldn’t do one handed) highly recommend this service!!
