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. 

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?

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.

I booked the move in house cleaning service for my parents. It was a little last minute (1 day notice) but the cleaners came through and did a suburb job. My parents said everyone was nice and professional. They would love to book again for regular house cleaning. Thank you for getting my parents new home cleaned and ready to move in.

We just bought a new house and needed a good deep cleaning. I never hired anyone to clean my home before, so I was worried. Thankfully, I found Liz on here and she was kind, patient, and understanding. She sent two woman to my new house and they did an AMAZING job! The house was extremely clean and feels like home now. They did an excellent job cleaning our kitchen appliances and all cabinets throughout the house. They were very diligent! We are so appreciative and happy we did it. They worked hard and it was worth every penny! Now we are so excited to start moving in our furniture. 😃

As the property manager, I hired them to do a cleaning for a dirty rental turnover and this is what my client had to say, “that company did a PHENOMENAL job on the house! They were there for around 6 hours. You can actually see the baseboard! Honestly the house was sparkling!”

We are very pleased with the cleaning services provided by S&C Cleaning Services. They arrived on time with specific instructions on what we requested, went through the checklist with me, and got to work. This was a three level deep cleaning preparation for an open house. Always very courteous and a pleasure. I will always recommend them most highly!

I loved having Lizbeth over. They did a very good job, and my house looked neat, clean and smelled nice! This was my very first time having cleaning services, I didn’t know what to expect and she was good at explaining the difference between standard and deep cleaning. Overall, very sweet ladies. Would highly recommend 😊

The ladies did a great job cleaning my house. My bathrooms, bedrooms and kitchen look amazing. They really took their time and I loved their attention to detail. They vacuumed underneath rugs and cleaned my windows. They were both friendly and offered great communication about when they would arrive.

Erikas cleaning was absolutely amazing! They were on time- their work quality was excellent. My last tenants had two dogs and when Erika had left one would not have known that. The house was spotless and smelled fresh, clean and actually was fresh and clean. I asked for non toxic cleaners as my next clients are sensitive and she used them. Also I had two requests- that she sweep the steps to the basement and she clean the window sills. They were all done. My requests were completed without issue

I hired ACCS to do a move-in cleaning of my townhouse. Kaitlin and her sis arrived very on time and did an excellent job cleaning the house. They listened to my needs and did the work dutifully. Also excellent communication both for scheduling and explaining what they did in the final walk through. Great value for the excellent job they did!

I was impressed by the punctuality and professionalism. They showed up on time. Very helpful and attenntive about my needs and expectations. Took time to really clean my house from top to bottom. One thing I really like was that they use environmental friendly cleaning product. Not a fan of hash chemicals especially with young kids. Overall, fantastic experience.
