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 is a house cleaning?

The national average cost for house cleaning ranges between $25 and $50 per hour, per cleaner. However, the cost of house cleaning services near you might be different.

House cleaning prices vary based on how many square feet your home is, how dirty your house gets and how often the cleaning service comes. And, prices can be lower in areas with a lower cost of living, higher in big cities or affluent regions.

Some companies charge a set amount — such as 5 cents — per square foot, with a minimum amount, such as $100. You may save money by increasing the frequency of your house cleaning visits. Often a company will charge you less per cleaning when you schedule more cleanings per month. The cost advantage rewards your loyalty, and also reflects the fact that more frequent cleanings make it easier to maintain a high level of cleanliness in your home. A housecleaning service may charge more for the first visit or for one-time services than for recurring cleanings.

What should I ask a house cleaner or maid before hiring them?

There are many questions to ask a cleaning service before you hire them to make sure they’re the right fit. These questions might include:

  • How much do you charge?
  • How do you set your prices -- per hour or per square foot? Or, do you charge a flat rate?
  • What is your past work experience? Can I see a list of references?
  • Are you accustomed to working with different home or apartment types and sizes?
  • Can you work with children or pets in the house?
  • What types of cleaning products do you use?
  • Do you bring your own cleaning supplies and products?
  • How often can you clean my home?
  • Is there anything you recommend I do (or don't do) to my home before you arrive?

I just loved the house after Cida cleaned it. It was so clean and fresh. She did a perfect job and made sure every nook and corner of the house was clean. I will definitely recommend her and will call her in my new house as well. Thank you so much Cida.

So far so good. We had our initial cleaning and I am impressed. The house is spotless, and they really took their time cleaning. There were 4 cleaners for the initial cleaning and I couldn't have asked for more. They even made the bed and did the dishes.

We got our first cleaning this week. The sisters came to my house a few days prior to the cleabing for an estimate. They responded quickly and professionally. Our first cleaning was fairly priced for a 4 bedroom, 1 full and 2 half bath house. They did an absolute amazing job. Went above and beyond our expectations. We are in the process of hiring them for every 2 weeks.

Most of the House was cleaned well, but some spots were missed or simply not covered well. One of these spots was my living room floor - it might have been cleaned a little but not throughly (see photo - this is just one paper towel.... i used a few to wipe the floors after she cleaned). The Shower was cleaned well and that was my biggest priority, so I am pleased with that.

Great duo who made it work before the snow storm. Amanda and her partner were lovely, we had to reschedule due to impending storm and they made it so easy and now my house feels super clean. Would highly recommend

Above and beyond... Laila was able to rearrange her schedule at the last minute for my request for bathroom cleaning. I am really happy with her and her team’s work, they did a fantastic job! They folded the end of the tissue role into a beautiful rose, arranged all my toiletries properly, vacuumed all the bath mats. I’m really impressed with their professionalism! I highly recommend Laila for house cleaning.

Gabriella and her husband showed up early and went straight to work. After another cleaner cancelled on me last minute, these two were absolutely a godsend. Fair price, house smells fresh and looks spotless which is difficult with a toddler. Highly recommend and will be using again

Luciana and her team were really kind, super detail oriented, and thorough. My house has never looked so clean! They worked together as a team and made their way through my entire home, leaving no surface untouched. I’d definitely recommend this service to others. Job well done.

I first learned about Angelita through Thumbtrack. Initially I was a little reluctant because I had never hired services; but then she sent me a list of her references and I contacted them. Everyone I spoke to had good experiences to share about her. I decided to give it a try and meet her. She was a pleasant surprise. She was very pleasing to talk to and understood our cleaning needs. She has been found to the punctual and honest - her work is much appreciated. She pays attention to details and is very dedicated in her approach. I must also mention that she understands our needs and schedules and together we work around it. its a pleasure to walk into the house when she is done with cleaning and tidying our space. Thank you for your service Angelita.
