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 much is a house cleaning?

The national average cost for house cleaning ranges between $25 and $50 per hour, per cleaner. However, the cost of house cleaning services near you might be different.

House cleaning prices vary based on how many square feet your home is, how dirty your house gets and how often the cleaning service comes. And, prices can be lower in areas with a lower cost of living, higher in big cities or affluent regions.

Some companies charge a set amount — such as 5 cents — per square foot, with a minimum amount, such as $100. You may save money by increasing the frequency of your house cleaning visits. Often a company will charge you less per cleaning when you schedule more cleanings per month. The cost advantage rewards your loyalty, and also reflects the fact that more frequent cleanings make it easier to maintain a high level of cleanliness in your home. A housecleaning service may charge more for the first visit or for one-time services than for recurring cleanings.

We just closed on a historic home that had not been cleaned regularly by its previous owners. Lisa and her team worked diligently to get this house in cleanly conditions. They provided a deep clean from the third floor all the way down to the bottom. I was so pleased with their work and plan to hire them again.

There was a slight delay in our first appointment, however the rescheduled appointment was outstanding. Shaynee was a meticulous cleaner, friendly and professional. I was impressed that she cleaned behind the couch, garbage cans and beyond. Entire house smelled so fresh and clean. She was very fast and focused too... I would hire her again! Thanks SpeedyCleans…

Really appreciated Danjela's flexibility in scheduling. Also as someone who doesn't use house cleaning services regularly, I appreciated the extra care she took to make sure I was getting the service I wanted. Deep clean was thorough and they also helped organize and tidy.

I moved into a house that was recently occupied, because I had to clean my apartment and coordinate the move while working full time, I wanted a move in clean. I reached out and they were very responsive, more quick than any other company. I called and they were available when I needed. I had a very detailed run through of what I needed, much of which was included in the description of a move in clean. I let the cleaner in and went over quickly what I wanted, describing cleaning little nooks and crannies/baseboards, walls etc. however the majority of description I had given the manager. I came over to look at what was done and things like the inside of the fridge, the stove, and cabinets were not cleaned. One of the biggest reasons I got a cleaning company. What was cleaned was done fairly well. I reached out to let them know and was offered 10% off and for a cleaner to come back, but by that time I was preparing to move in and had already spent 200 dollars. Overall I was disappointed. Mistakes happen, but I feel like I’m out 200 dollars and still had to clean the dirtiest parts of the house.

When I walked into my house after Lori cleaned it, I couldn't believe how great it looked. Lori did a fantastic job. She was quick to respond to my inquiry, and came out the next day to meet with me and talk about my cleaning needs. I highly recommend her service. She is truly a miracle worker!

Maria and her team were great. She cleaned the house I sold and the house I bought. They were immaculate. The only reason I didn't give her five stars is because we had a hiccup with time, but because of reasons beyond her control. But she was in constant communication with me - - a rarity with contractors these days. I'll recommend her and hire her again.

My husband and I received a move-in clean from Genie in a Bucket and I was impressed with not only their cleaning but customer service. My husband was at the house when the cleaning occurred but Joni messaged me to ensure I was satisfied with their services which I viewed in the evening. I had a few minor concerns so Joni scheduled someone to come the next day to handle them. Plus they suggested a cleaning cloth brand that doesn’t use chemicals. I’ll be getting some. Everything was resolved and now we’re clear to start moving in. I will be referring others.

T & D Cleaning Services, I telephonically interviewed 4 cleaning services in an attempt to do my due diligence, I selected T & D cleaning service. Diane interviewed well, she directed me to her business website, which was very professional, user-friendly with great functionality. Diane declined to physically assess the job in advance, as did the other three interviewees. She arrived promptly at 9:00am and stated the job would take 5 hours to complete. I was baffled by this since the job was to clean a completely empty house with no kitchen appliances or furniture. She made two trips to her car bringing in supplies and equipment. The house was a rental that had been precleaned prior to contractual work being done. The house was freshly painted throughout, new kitchen countertops and flooring. The flooring throughout the home was newly sanded, stained and clear-coated hardwood flooring, which she said she would steam clean. The bathroom, also freshly painted, contained a new vanity and medicine cabinet. In the 1-bedroom apartment upstairs, which had been empty for 5 years, she was asked to vacuum, dust and clean 2 horizontal mini blinds. The apartment was an additional charge. Diane called at 4:30p to inform me she was done. I struggled to understand what she did for 7.5 hours. Her focus was to be the kitchen and bathroom. She was asked to clean the kitchen cabinets inside and out. The cabinets were cleaned in a hit and miss manner, the counter tops had residue remaining from installation that still remained when she was done cleaning, no steam cleaning of floors was done, the bathroom floor and tub were omitted. She had taken the chandelier apart in the dining room to clean the various pieces and left them sitting on the kitchen counter; presumably for me to put back together. The chandelier fixture itself had been completely missed, and was full of dust. Turns out, Diane had no vacuum cleaner and “swept” the carpet on the stairs entering the apartment. As I exposed the deficiencies in her work, she ran around making corrections and excuses; and took no responsibility. Everything was my fault or the website’s fault. I was charged a 6% sales tax for the cleaning service, which according to Michigan law, janitorial services are exempt. She also declined to provide a Senior Citizen discount or any type of price adjustment considering her work ethic or lack thereof. The entire experience was disappointing, I feel like I was scammed. Would I recommend or rehire T & D Cleaning Services: NO.

Angie definitely lived up to what everyone said about punctuality which was much appreciated. However we were disappointed with execution of a few tasks. We paid for a deep clean but we will be cleaning more things after her, which is indication that the job was not complete. She was cleaning a completely empty house and we pointed out two major things (among other tasks) we wanted done: cleaning the radiators and cleaning blinds. She did a good job wiping down surfaces but lacked execution in other areas. For instance after mopping her and the two assistants she brought with her continued to walk over wet floors with their shoes. She did not touch the blinds. And we have radiators that had dust caught in between them and despite giving clear directions about how to get rid of the dust she didn't have the tools to execute it properly so she just half heartedly wiped down what she could reach with a rag. To her credit, if there was something we pointed out that we wanted cleaned she'd do it but as time ran out her thoroughness seemed to disappear. We asked her to re-do dusting the radiators because it hadn't been done properly but she merely wiped down the outside without trying to get creative and get the cracks where all the dust lived. I got the impression that she was ready to leave and wasn't trying to stay and make sure she hadn't missed anything. Weirdly, WE felt rushed. While I am grateful for her services I wish there had been more professionalism as well as the desire to leave not a stone unturned when performing a "deep clean".
