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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Mary and her sisters were a little late we said 8 and they came at 8:30 but it was no sweat off my back! They did an absolutley wonderful job and it’s less stress and work from me and yet my house is so clean! They did reorganize some stuff so it’s going to take a little bit to get things back where I intended them but I’m happy with the outcome! Will use again for a deep cleaning

Naturally Clean charges 25% more than other cleaners. It's not worth it. To my understanding, Alexis only does move-in/out cleanings and the justification behind the higher price is that she will do more of a thorough job than most (cleaning out cabinets, drawers, etc). We hired Alexis for a move-in cleaning. After being in the house a few days, we started to unpack the kitchen and noticed a few big red flags: the corners of the floors were filthy, the fridge is full of streaks, the cabinet shelves were still dirty, ick. And that's only the kitchen. I contacted Alexis immediately when we moved in to let her know about the floors and fridge. She offered to come back another day but instead we agreed to discount her price. She'll also ask you to pay her directly outside of Thumbtack which, might affect their bottom line, who knows.
