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.

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.

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?

What is included in a deep house cleaning vs. a basic house cleaning?

A basic house cleaning typically includes tasks like carpet cleaning, wiping countertops, taking out the trash, doing the laundry and washing dishes. A deep house cleaning is a much more involved process, where all aspects of the home are given full attention for a cleanout. In a deep house cleaning, the cleaners will wet-wipe everything from door frames to light switch plates, making sure to also clean walls, windows, air vents, ceiling fans, furniture and more.

How do I prepare for a house cleaner?

There are several things you can do in preparation for a house cleaning to improve the efficiency and quality of the job. If you’re unfamiliar with a cleaning service, hiding and locking away any obvious valuables lying around can offer great peace of mind.

Depending on the preference of the cleaner, you may need to lock up your pets before the cleaners arrive. Washing dishes and decluttering the house allows a house cleaner to do their job more effectively. And leaving special notes for the cleaners about certain areas in your home that need attention is also helpful.

Ask house cleaners near you about their tips to help you prepare for their services.

Oh my god the place has never been so clean! My only regret is not having them clean the house more often. I have no idea how they were able to get the oven so clean.

The first thing about hiring a cleaning service is whether they know how to CLEAN! Nikki is great! She did an initial cleaning after I purchased my house in Annapolis. She was there for like 8 hours! That house was CLEAN. Detail oriented! She’s very trustworthy, works the security system, etc. no problem. Also, she gives a very reasonable price, particularly for the high quality of work. I have recommended her to friends and now to you. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

Between dogs and kids, our house was DIRTY. On the very first time they came, Vanessa and her team worked wonders on our home (especially our floors). It was so great to come home to a clean house. We will definitely be using her services again.

They are extremely thorough. They come on time and clean everything with attention to detail. They are very friendly and very accommodating. They did a deep clean for me and did a wonderful job. Also they leave the house smelling and feeling fresh. I have hired them to do my weekly cleans. I would highly recommend them to everyone.

Juanita was a pleasure to work with and was able to schedule a full house deep clean as soon as the next day. She was very responsive and her and her team were professional, efficient and did an excellent job. I asked for specific cleaning in the kitchen cabinets and they did exactly that. Highly recommend them if you are looking for a great cleaning service!

Three people, THREE people showed up to clean my house and it was extraordinary. I don't have a large house by any means, but the fact that I had three people working to clean my house meant a few things: 1. Quality - they only focused on certain individual tasks while working as a team 2. Professionalism - they got the work done quietly, effectively, and quickly 3. Efficient - 2 hours in and out and my house was spotless. I was able to return to my work and they were able to tackle their next project. Vanessa was communicative, kind, and willing to work with me and our schedules. I'll be using her consistently moving forward. Also - they folded my toilet paper and towels - for a few moments, I felt like I was in a hotel :) Thank you!

I hired FA Cleaning after they came to my home and listened to my needs for a weekly cleaning service. Fany understood what rooms that I needed cleaned on a weekly basis and was willing to meet my needs. I was amazed at the job FA did. They did such a great job cleaning including the little touches like they way they hung the towels in the bathroom and the pretty folds in the tissue boxes. The house smelled so cleaned for several day. I look forward to them coming every week now.

Fantastic! I moved into a new house and it just didn't feel like home. There was a weird smell and I was just SKEEVED. Angie came in and made this house FINALLY feel like my home. She even found and cleaned dust mounds on the INSIDE of the closet doors. that had built up. Book Angie without hesitation.

The two ladies did a basic cleaning of my house. It was just okay. However they did not understand the extent of cleaning that I was requesting. Despite my effort to communicate that I needed a Deep cleaning, the cleaning was just satisfactory. When I addressed specific places that I wanted to be cleaned, the ladies complained excessively and became belligerent. I was calm and collected, but I was really offended at how rude they became, so quickly. It was very disrespectful. I was willing to pay for the service and offer more, but in the end they said “we’re done here, we cant do that” and proceeded to leave. I will never use their service again, and I do not recommend.

Vanessa was wonderful to work with and made communication quick and easy. She confirmed her appointment, notified me when her team was on their way, and again when they were finished. I came home to a clean and fresh house and look forward to working with her again.

I have used quite a few housecleaners before I was fortunate enough to find Nicole and she was exceptional! Her attention to detail makes her a standout in her business. She cleaned my walls, heating grates, office desk covered in files and worked continuously until late in the evening. Please do yourself a favor and hire her to clean your house. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

Alexis was awesome. We came into a last minute bind as we are trying to sell our home and she made the time to come do a thorough move out clean with less than 24 hours notice. Super prompt communication, very timely, and sweet demeanor. House sparkles!
