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. 

When viewing house cleaners on Thumbtack, you might see a Top Pro badge. This indicates that the service is one of the most popular and highly-rated professionals using the platform.

The overall is good; unfortunately, I was very disappointed with the service.; We have requested move-in cleaning, but for three floors house, they clean the face of everything, and after 2 hours, they have done and felt rushed. A lot of details were missed. House looked good on the surface but not deep cleaned. And the money we paid it's not worse.

We used Carmen's Cleaning Services during the time we were selling our house, from initial showings through closing. We were very pleased with the appearance of our house. Carmen and her staff were always on time and very pleasant. It was a pleasure to have them working. We credit their service in helping to sell our house by making it look so clean and neat.

I had an excellent experience with my house cleaning service. I needed someone last minute and L/R house services responded immediately and was available the next day. They did an amazing job! 2 of them spent about 4 hours and cleaned my house from top to bottom. They even accommodated the 3 pets I have. I will definitely use them again!!

Anna responded very quickly to my request. She was prompt and did an excellent job. The house was sold and needed to be cleaned before the buyer moved in. I'm sure the buyer was happy walking into a house that was spotless.

Great service! We were very impressed when the the cleaners arrived early and began working immediately. They thoroughly cleaned each and every area inside of our house, including the cabinets and windows. This was especially appreciated since the house is fairly large. Overall, we are extremely satisfied with the service, and will be using them again!

Tru Clean was great! As a nurse working overtime through COVID and a mom of three boys, my house became a place of neglect in need of a deep clean. Tru Clean did just that. The oven is sparkling, windows so clear and bathrooms haven’t been this clean in ages I haven’t felt such peace and rest in so long. I am able to enjoy the weekend with my children instead of cleaning. Tru clean cleansed my home but also dusted off my spirit.

I requested a deep clean of a house that we recently bought and were going going to move in to. What I received was not a deep clean, I feel like there might of been some kind of miscommunication on what that means. I requested that she sanitize all surfaces of the house, including the insides of cabinets, but when I went to unpack and put things inside the cabinets I realized that they were not cleaned. Liz did come back once to clean a few things that her team forgot, so I appreciated that...but I continue to find things that should have been done the first time around.

Nancy and her team came to my house to do a deep cleaning of the kitchen. They exceeded my expectations and did a fantastic job! Not only that, but they went above and beyond and did some spot cleaning of other areas too. I would definitely hire Nancy and her team for any future cleaning. Thanks again for all of your help.

They missed our appointment, called and said they'd be late. They did show up later and got the job done for a reasonable price. The cleaners themselves were very nice and good once they got to the house.

Lucio and his team were absolutely fabulous !! We have had many companies come to our house, and have never had the level of service he and his team provided. Our house is absolutely spotless. We have two dogs that shed, and you wouldn’t know it after having Lucio come clean. They didn’t miss a detail and made sure every corner was cleaned. I highly recommend his services and will definitely be using them regularly ! Thank you Lucio and team!!

This was the first time in my life when I requested cleaning of the house. I was a little nervous based on the unfortunate experience of my sister who lives in Canada. I am more than happy with the quality of Wilma's service. The house had to be cleaned just before selling that included 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, and the basement. Wilma confirmed the time of coming the night before and showed up with her team exectly at 8 am as agreed. She and her 2 helpers made the house shining, not forgetting the little corners and other places that is very easy to overlook. It took them 4 hours to complete the job. I was especially impressed by the fact that Wilma was not just cleaning, but instructed her team how to do the job more efficienly and more comfortable for me. I still had some little pieces all over the house and they collected them to one place on the first floor close to the door, and even sorted them! I am sincerely thankful for Wilma's job and highly recommend her services. Inna Fremming April 2019

We used Cheap Cleaning for about a year. She was accommodating to a schedule change. However, she was not careful, even after mentioning it, with our house and stuff. Floorboards have to be repainted from the vacuum cleaner being rubbed against them. There are grooves in some wall corners from the vacuum cleaner cord when she pulled it too tight, instead of just plugging it in somewhere else. She rushes through and would sometimes be in the house for only a couple of hours. Considering we have 2700 sq ft and 4 floors, we didn't think this was enough time. Then after items being broken on 3 different occasions without her telling us, we finally decided it was enough.
