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.

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.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a house cleaner when social distancing?

If you hire a house cleaner to clean the inside of your home, do not make physical contact. Stay at least 6 feet apart at all times, sanitize any surfaces after cleaning and wash your hands thoroughly. Exchange all payments digitally instead of with cash. When contacting a house cleaner, put a plan in place to ensure everyone's safety.

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.

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.

Should I hire a move-out cleaning service or do it myself?

You may benefit from hiring a professional move-out cleaning service, depending on your budget, time frame and whether you will be getting a deposit back. Hiring a cleaning service takes the stress out of your move. But if you’ve had your house regularly deep-cleaned, or if your landlord will charge you for cleaning anyway, you can save costs by DIY-ing it.

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 are the different types of house cleaning services I can get?

There are several services offered by professional house cleaning companies, each suited for a different purpose. These services include:

  • Standard cleaning, which is a basic cleaning typically done on a weekly or monthly basis;
  • Deep cleaning, which is a detailed cleaning with more intensive work than a standard clean;
  • Move-in and move-out cleaning, which is a detailed service preparing a home for residents moving in or out;
  • Green house cleaning, which is a service that uses eco-friendly cleaning supplies and products. 

Aside from the type of cleaning services available, homeowners may also choose daily, weekly, monthly or one-time services.

How much should you tip maids or cleaning services?

Tipping between 15 and 20 percent is considered an appropriate tip for maids and house cleaners — just as it would with a barber, food delivery driver or taxi operator. During the holidays, you might want to consider tipping a bit more. 

It’s important to note that some housekeeping and maid services might include a tip within the service fee, which should be explained to you in the service contract. Talk to house cleaners in your area to find out what's included in their fees.

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!

I clean our house regularly, but i usually hire someone 1-2x per year for a deep clean. This is the first time I've been completely satisfied and didn't go around the house afterwards cleaning all the missed spots. They got all the hard to reach spots,moved furniture, really did everything I asked and more. Very satisfied!

Cleaning Bees did a move-out clean for us after a 6 mo rental. Mike and Anjelika were very professional, communicated thoroughly and did a spectacular job cleaning the house. I would definitely use again and highly recommend Cleaning Bees!

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.

Excellent and very professional. Two cleaners arrived on time and masked properly, as we had little children. Completed our whole house cleaning in the allotted time, but especially did a great job on our bathtubs and showers! Highly recommend.

I want to give my highest recommendation to Calmes Cleaning Company. At the very beginning of the process, they were the most responsive company I spoke to, and even more importantly, they did such a tremendous job. I try to keep my house relatively clean, but this is the cleanest my house has been since I moved in eight years ago! They are also very efficient and kind, which adds to the experience. I will likely contract their services again in the future.

I paid for a deep house clean and none of that happened. The floors, showers, Kitchen cabinets and counters were visibly dirty. Only the carpet was cleaned and even that was left drenching in water. After 3 days of not drying and a terrible smell, I had to hire another company to clean the carpet. I contacted the company and got no response. I would not recommend this company at all

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 could not be happier with the jobs Zak and Hillary have done for me, cleaning my house and helping with some home maintenance. Their work ethic is impeccable, as is their job performance. My house looks spic and span, and they fixed everything on my to-do list very efficiently. On top of it, they are so nice and helpful. I have retained their services and wish that I could give them 10 stars!

I wasn’t going to leave a review, but since thumbtack asked for one l, here goes. I’ve never had such a bad experience with someone cleaning my house. I hired Long’s cleaning for a deep cleaning. They didn’t even come prepared to clean the floors. When I lent them my mops, they used a cleaner that I had specifically told them I would have a bad reaction to. I had to re-clean my floors twice and air out my house for hours. They didn’t even dust table tops and shelves and didn’t clean under the rim of the toilet. When I asked if they were going to wipe off the fronts of the kitchen cabinets, they said no. I certainly would expect that to be included in a deep cleaning. I could go on and on, but you get the idea. They said they were finished, when the job was not nearly finished and I wasn’t comfortable paying them. They basically told me that they wouldn’t leave until I paid. I felt intimidated, and paid them 3/4 of what we had contracted for, more than they deserved in my opinion. They me they would email me with their phone number to follow up, and they never did. If I could give zero stars, I would.

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.
