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.

Liz and her team came into clean a neglected unusable kitchen and really dirty bathroom and left the whole house feeling clean again. I was amazed how fast they changed the kitchen from someplace I didn't want to be to a kitchen that can be used again. Liz and her team were also delightful to have working in the house. I would definitely hire them again!

We hired Think Maids for a move out cleaning service. They did an excellent job. I don't think the house has been that clean since it was built. I would definitely hire them again. Their price was very reasonable as well.

Vilma and her crew did an Amazing job with my house cleaning. I’ve had several cleaning companies come before and none that inspired me enough to call back. She touched everything! And I mean there was no spot that got neglected from cleaning all the trim to dusting all surfaces. I will definitely call her and her crew back for a monthly clean. So worth the price and a great value!

They let me know their accurate time of arrival, were kind and very pleasant, and most importantly they were extremely thorough. They got places I personally haven’t been able to clean myself and were gentle and respectful with my belongings as they cleaned. They organized as they cleaned and made my house seem less cluttered. Their professional touches like folding blankets in patterns and toilet paper / tissues were sweet finishing touches. My home, floors and appliances have never been so clean! And the prices are very reasonable for the value! I have already recommended to others and I highly recommend to you reading this. I will hire again!

I needed an emergency cleaning and contacted Cintia, across other providers here in Thumbtack. She was incredibly responsive and from text number one until she left my house, she was great! She was able to accommodate by last minute request, and showed up exactly at the time we agreed on, bringing all supplies. She left my house spotless and worked very efficiently. I will definitely be using her again, and I would recommend her to anybody!

We hired Lily and are SO happy we did! She and her team do an incredibly thorough job and are very pleasant to work with. I have serious allergy issues and our previous house cleaner just seemed to be doing a very top-level clean. My allergy issues have greatly improved since we hired Lily. She comes once a week and outs up with our two crazy dogs! Thank you!
