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 often should you have your house cleaned?

The frequency you should have your house cleaned depends on several factors, and the best professional house cleaner can give you a rough estimate of costs so you can budget how often you need someone to clean your home. 

Daily house cleaning may be necessary if you have a home with a large number of bedrooms with young children and kids, although other homeowners may benefit from weekly house cleaning. A weekly cleaner can clean the bathroom, kitchen, do laundry, vacuum and mop. An occasional deep house cleaning is most beneficial for people who have recently renovated a home or are looking to do a spring clean.

Joni and team did a great job on our clean today! The house looks and smells great. After a long day at work it is great to sit on the couch and have my house clean!

Dulin was scheduled to come out for June 28th, just before a tenant family was to move in (with their 4 month old baby) to a rental home I own, to give the vacant house a good cleaning. I was texted that the work had been completed and paid their invoice of $235. OMG. On June 30th, my daughter dropped by the house and NOTHING HAD BEEN CLEANED. I called the company and was able to get the owner to come out and quickly clean the house herself in the afternoon (although according to the tenant, some things were missed). On the plus side, the owner was apologetic for what happened, but honestly, what type of employees go out and tell you they've cleaned a house, but haven't? I'm out of state, so it was hard for me to confirm this and I was relying on their being honest. If my daughter hadn't checked the day before on the condition of the house, my tenants would have been moving into a dirty home (we had a previous tenant move out, so it needed a good cleaning).

Jennifer and her team clean my house every other week - the schedule she and I agreed on. I love coming home to a clean house. And I love the reminder texts she sends me a few days before the scheduled cleaning. There have even been a few surprises (condensing two laundry baskets together that I left out because I didn't have time to put the clothes away, making a bed when the linens were left on a pile & organizing the garlic and onions left out on my kitchen counter) that have left me thrilled. I would recommend Jennifer to clean your house.

I selected Maid II Shine to provide house cleaning services as a Christmas gift to my father. Reviewing possible candidate companies was easy with Thumbtack. I live overseas, finding what I thought was a reliable house cleaner has proved to be anything but easy though! After making payment, arrangement of time to perform the cleaning was left to the cleaning service & the gift recipient. A bit of going back & forth - has resulted in nothing happening - no cleaning! We're a month into the new year and I'm wondering if my father will ever see the house cleaner. The prices quoted last year at the time of purchase were half as much as the new prices. To say I'm highly disappointed is putting it mildly. But being an optimist I even was willing to try again by hooking this cleaner up with another cleaning job to a different person. Maid II Shine didn't even reply! Maybe this review will finally result in some action. It's unfortunate. I cannot in good conscience recommend Maid II Shine to anyone.

Deep clean for a huge old house with 6 people living in it. Rudy was very accommodating and the job was fantastic and thorough. Great rates and excellent communication. Would recommend.

8/27 This was my first time hiring a cleaning company and I was so nervous. After being quoted by many I decided to go with Ariel and do not regret it. My husband and I wanted the house we’re moving into cleaned before we moved in our things. We usually do these things ourselves but we have been busy with packing and two little ones that it was impossible to fit cleaning a 1500 sqft house in between. This House has been empty for a while and had an old musty house smell. In addition to that, the dirty floors, kitchen, bathroom and huge basement. It was a top to bottom house clean. And she and her team did it and I will definitely use her in the future and refer her company. I’m so excited to move into the house now knowing that it’s cleaned. _______ 8/31Since the house was cleaned I haven't gone personally to see it until today because I have been so busy packing to move into our rental. I wanted to be very happy about this job. I was silly for even reviewing the company/project before i actually went to see the house. I just did my initial review based on photos sent and that was stupid and very misleading. I have contacted them and my text aren't going through and no reply via thumbtack. My husband and I were getting ready to move our things into our "clean"rental house and I found myself scrubbing grime and dirt off of the kitchen cabinets. Cleaning the fridge from old food build up from the glass barrier. I was scrubbing the bathroom tiles from top to bottom because they were dirty with yellow scum. Under the sink was an old plunger and dirt that they didn't have the decency to remove so it can at least look like they cleaned. Imagine being with two small children and having to stop everything to clean something you thought was taken care of. I was embaressed and upset because it took my husband a lot of convincing to hire a company. I provided a full list of all i needed cleaned. I wanted a DEEP CLEAN. I emailed it and text it to Ariel. Given that they were there for 5 hours I assumed it was a thorough clean. But it was an overpriced surface clean I paid for and i got, GOT. So the jokes on me. I asked for a refund for at least half because its not fair that I paid so much for poor quality. I doubt I will even get a response. It's just wrong on so many levels. But I should have known better. I let them be alone in the house so I wouldn't be those people hogging and spying but now I know that I should have been. My husband went to check for progress once on his lunch break and saw them clean and was happy the "old house" smell was gone. But even that smell returned. We are very disappointed and hurt because this just added so much more stress to the already stressful move we have to do. I guess cleanliness is relative. So thank you. I learned a valuable lesson here.

Paula's Cleaning Service did an excellent cleaning job! I have hired Paula's Cleaning to for recurring cleaning appointments going forward. Paula is extremely responsive, and her staff were very timely and efficient. Her staff paid good attention to detail in our house, and everything looked wonderful when she left! I am looking forward to continuing to work with Paul and her team.

Out of all the people I reached out to on Thumbtack, Ello's Cleaning Service was the only one who responded. Eric was on time for both appointments, very professional and thorough. He and his wife did a great job with the deep clean. We're very excited about how good everything looks and will have him continue with bi-weekly house cleaning.

Our home needed a deep clean after being vacant for several months and Delighted Doorsteps did a beautiful job. It was such a relief to come home to a sparkling house, and it gave me peace of mind knowing the natural cleaning materials were safe for our little kiddos. Thank you Ruth and Tracy!!

More than many other cleaners I contacted, Angelika was very responsive to my inquiries, and she quickly arranged a time to visit the house (during the busy holiday season no less), and promptly gave us a very reasonable quote for bi-weekly cleaning. Very professional. And little things mean a lot: she took her shoes off when she came in the house, which is always a good sign! We ended up hiring someone else who was already cleaning in our neighbourhood and beloved by neighbours, but otherwise we would have hired Angelika and her company for the above reasons.

Maid II Shine cleaned our house today and we could not be happier with the result! The ladies were thorough and professional and took great care with every aspect of their work. Our house looks beautiful - just what we were hoping for as we are having guests for a holiday party in a couple days. I really appreciate that they were able to come help us out even though it was on short notice. I highly recommend Maid II Shine to anyone else needing cleaning services - we will definitely be calling them again!

I chose Elena because of the raving reviews here on a thumbtack and I’m happy to add my five stars to those. I hired Elena for a move out cleaning and the work she did was spotless. I’m so happy I found her and will keep using her services at my new house.
