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.

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.

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.

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. 

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.

We booked a deep clean with Fernanda and she exceeded our expectations! The whole house looks and smells so clean. She did an excellent job with all the blinds, making the bathroom sparkle, and even organizing our desks/tidying other things around the house. We will absolutely be booking future cleanings with her.

Great house cleaning! Scheduled a walk through with me to see my home and talk about what I wanted before getting a confirmed quote. I had just finished a house construction project so everything was incredibly dusty. Super thorough, left the house looking so much better, and very reasonable price! I will definitely be reaching out for any future cleaning needs.

I've never used a house cleaning service and was thrilled with boston commercials cleaners. They were the cheapest price for what I needed and used all Eco-friendly products, which I like because I have a young daughter. They didn't have any hidden fees and did exactly what I asked and even more. They even met me before to go over everything I needed and to make sure I felt comfortable with Consuela cleaning my house. They provided me with their insurance certificate and were very professional. I would recommend them to anyone seeking a house cleaner and someone wanting to help a growing small business.

I hired Angelita to clean my friend's house as a birthday gift since he had recently bought a house. He said "Review her real good," so I am, and "Our house probably looked the best it ever has." I guess you could say that she did an Amaidzing job.

Great quality of service. I just moved in my new home. There are foams everywhere and dirty floor and tables. They cleaned all the places including the oven top, window frames, etc. I’d like to ask them to clean the house in the future.

We honestly did not know out place could look this clean! They cleaned up a year’s worth of grunge we didn’t even notice and made the house brighter than ever before. They were exactly on time: not a minute early or late. Like, we keep finding more things they’ve cleaned!

I was very happy with the house cleaning that Lane's cleaning Service provided. The company responded right away and I was able to schedule an appointment within a couple of days. They did a great job and the price as more than fair I would definitely call them again.

I like to think I keep my house relatively picked up, but I own a small, old home. I have a toddler and a cat. Things just get dirty and I can’t ever seem to get them clean. Raquel and her team cleaned EVERYTHING. They cleaned things I didn’t think could be cleaned. I got emotional it was so clean. I am still reveling in the cleanliness of my home. I will definitely be calling them again!

Fernanda completed her first visit today and I couldn't be happier. She did an amazing job organizing and tidying up the house on top of the intense cleaning she did. I added the extra service to have the refrigerator and oven cleaning, and it was 100% worth it. Everything is spotlessly clean you can even smell it :) She did all this while making sure our cats were safe.

Sergio and Francine were very nice and responsive. I am still undecided to have them back as I am just not sure if I am comfortable having others clean my house.(for a variety of reasons) not because of them. If I do hire a cleaner again I would have them back
