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 could not be happier. We just moved here and our new house needed a thorough deep cleaning. Rosi was responsive to every text and her team cleaned my entire house from top to bottom. Oven, interior of the fridge; windows. We’ve hired them to come every two weeks. I’m so happy to have found them.

Unfortunately this was not a good experience. Firstly, Jenni sent a message with a $140 monthly cleaning fee. I accepted and texted her to discuss scheduling etc. She then asked me to describe if my house and explained the cleaning time "depends takes up to 2-4 hours" This is when she told me her first time cleaning fee is $185 and its more like a deep cleaning. After that there would be a monthly rate or bi-weekly. I asked how much that would be and got no response. I continued to schedule even though the rate was higher than her original message to me on thumbtack, I figured a deep cleaning for 4 hours the first time made sense. She arrived at my apartment the next day at 122pm and I was not home to meet her but they were let in by my mother. She texted me her Venmo to send the payment at 230 which I did and shortly after at 247pm she texted me"We are all done ty". Considering I was still at work I was not able to meet or check out my apartment but I knew 1 hour and 25 minutes was DEFINITELY NOT long enough to deep clean an apartment especially for a first time cleaning. Sure enough when I got home I was disappointed to find that nothing was DEEP cleaning. The bathroom floors needed to be scrubbed, the bathroom sink inside was wiped down but the side of the sink was not. The bathroom mirror wasn't cleaned. The floors had been quickly mopped- there were spots that I wiped up that were still dirty. Fans, surfaces, under my heater had not been dusted. There were several areas in the home that when I have time I clean myself and none of them were "deep cleaned". Needless to say I was not happy that I paid $185 for less than 2 hours of basic wiping down. I texted her immediately to inform her and she rescheduled to provide another cleaning 2 weeks later. Once again, she left after about an hour of work and my house was not deep cleaned. The fans were dusted and surfaces were wiped. I would not pay for this service again.

I needed someone ASAP, so I put on a request on thumbtack. Rosi contacted me immediately and fit me in that day. New Years Day mind you. She came in and cleaned my house like it was the day I built it, 17 years ago. Like a brand new home. I’m amazed and grateful to her. I asked her to help me in my new home. She will be my permanent housekeeper. 🙏
