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.

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.

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.

Hired the team at Cleanliness Solutions to clean my house before professional photos were taken and again before the open house. Really pleased with the work they did, the house was sparkling for the photos and for the open house itself. Got lots of feedback on how clean the house was! Would strongly recommend Niele and her team.

Amazing service! From the moment I contacted them, they were very responsive and accommodating. I had to reschedule on them twice due to my work schedule, but they were understanding and worked with me. They came this past Wednesday (four of them) and spent over four hours at my house, scrubbing and cleaning every nook and cranny. My house was such a mess and they had many obstacles, yet when they left, the house was SPOTLESS. My house has never been cleaner!! Can't wait for them to come back in 2 weeks. Best money spent!

We needed a professional cleaner to come out after construction in our house, and Ranielly did an amazing job! She was so thorough, even cleaning inside the kitchen cabinets and cleaning light fixtures. I couldn't be more happy with the great work she did and will definitely be a repeat customer.

As others have stated, their first visit (deep clean) strategy was amazing. Our house has certainly never been cleaner! This is certainly the right was to kick off the relationship and was worth every penny. All our interactions have been punctual and professional and our cleaning team is wonderful! Highly recommended!

Cindi did a fantastic job with our move-in deep clean. She was able to get a lingering sour smell out of the house and spent a lot of time making sure all the detailed cleaning work was complete. She was very responsive on the phone and online. Great rates, highly recommend.

HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY 😊 I have been looking for a good cleaning service for awhile and I was so very pleased when I went into my house yesterday and realized I finally found one! When Luiza and her mom showed up on time and they both were dressed immaculately clean themselves and very professional looking I was very impressed. They went right to work and finished in a timely manner. My house smelled wonderfully clean and they just new what to do. I noticed all the places where they cleaned with "extra care" and cleaned as if I did it myself which is exactly what I was hoping for. They were so kind and once again very professional. I would highly recommend Luiza and her mom. And I will tell all my friends about them 😊!

The best ever cleaner I’ve ever had! Professional, laborious, punctuate, polite, and brings much much more value than they charge you! I ordered their service to help me clean a house that’s kinda a mess after renovation, look what they brought to me, just immaculate work quality! I ordered them to start working at 9:00AM, they came early 10 min and straight up start working. You don’t even need to worry about monitoring them. They will clean the house as long as they need to bring every details to perfection! If you’re lucky to have them, just look no further, trust the quality and value of their work!

I needed a deep clean of my 3bed/2bath single-family home. Kelly Gomes offered a competitive rate and was extremely responsive and flexible with scheduling. Evelin arrived on time and spent most of the day transforming our entire house to a level of cleanliness it hasn't seen in a long time! (The inside of my refrigerator looks brand new!) Thank you!!
