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.

Warning!! This company is a joke. My usual cleaning company was completely booked for a deep cleaning, so we found and hired them to do a move out cleaning of our house (deep cleaning) in which there was no furniture left in the house, no beds to make, etc.. They arrived on time at 8am with all of their supplies, ready to work. They originally quoted me $385 then changed it to $400 then changed it to $450 the morning of the cleaning. Fine! I was desperate for our house to get cleaned for our open house the following day. They didn’t call me until 6pm to let me know the job was done. So I get to the house and start inspecting the work. There was still dog hair and dust ALL OVER the baseboards, floors.. and they didn’t even clean the bathroom sinks or countertops. There was still crumbs all over kitchen counters. They didn’t clean the toilets. So I asked them to finish the job and I would be back. Came back a little later and NOTHING MORE had been done! I don’t understand what these people were doing in my house for 11 hours! The amount of cleaning they did should’ve taken them max 6 hours! So here we are, me and my husband, 7:30 pm, pointing out to them all the dog hair/dirt/dust they missed and they still made us pay them the $400 then they left, not even offering to come back and give us a satisfactory cleaning for the $400 we spent!! Now my husband and I have to wake up on a Saturday morning and clean our house before the open house, with an infant in tow, plus I’m pregnant, along with $400 less in our pockets. Absolutely infuriating! I’m tempted to believe most of this company’s reviews are fake, based on the terrible customer service and awful cleaning job.

Rachel was fantastic. Best house cleaner I’ve found on here by far. I gave her very short notice. And it wasn’t a problem at all! I was out of town, which it made it more complicated, but we had no issues. I’ll use spring clean for now on!

I couldn't recommend this company more. I've had experiences with cleaning services and have NEVER been happy. That all changed with Executive Precision Cleaning. Mary arrived exactly on time, actually a few minutes early...and what a delightful lady! Very pleasant person. And she cleaned this house so it was SPOTLESS. It smelled wonderful. So fresh and clean. I don't believe you will get a better value, or service than this company.

Ginger, was amazing and a pleasure to work with. On time, courteous, and super hard working. She spent a full day in our new house and perfectly prepped it for our move in. We came back to a white-glove clean house. Every surface—top of cabinets, ceiling fan blades, light switches, etc—were dust free. Drawers and cabinets spotless. Bathrooms, Washer, dryer, oven, stove, and all three refrigerators were pristine. I highly recommend her cleaning services. And I look forward to working with her for future projects. Thks again, Ginger!

Long post- but I figured I would warn others since this company has such great reviews, but my experience was terrible! The worst house cleaning service I’ve ever used! I hired them last week to do a deep cleaning. They were able to come right away which was impressive. They ended up getting to my home 3 hours after my scheduled time. I was annoyed, but it happens.. They spent over 4 hours in my house. When I returned home, they asked that I inspect. So I quickly inspected the 3 problem areas I pointed out which were all really nice and clean! So after they left I went upstairs and noticed the bathroom countertops or sinks had not been cleaned and they left several dead flies on my window seal. So I went downstairs to inspect even further- fireplace mantle wasn’t dusted, coffee table or tv stand wasn’t dusted, they forgot to clean my entire half bathroom, dead flies on several more of my window seals, kitchen floor wasn’t thoroughly mopped and they completely missed my kitchen door entry way and it was filthy!! list goes on.. I was really upset and reached out to the owner, Isaac, and he was very apologetic and reassured me he’d have a new team sent out to me the following week. So here we are again, a new team came today and they did do a better job than the first, but still have areas not cleaned, plus she asked me if I’d like my bed made.. at that point I realized this service just isn’t for me! They completely missed the “deep cleaning” memo which is what I hired them to do. I’ve had many cleaning services over the years and they would always put clean sheets on the bed and do the dishes- basic housekeeping, plus they all cost half of what this company is charging! So save yourself the time, money, and disappointment and hire someone else. I’ll be going back to Molly maids service who have my entire house CLEANED, tidied, bed maid, dishes washed, and on time for $100 cheaper than this company.
