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.

They arrived on time, with all the supplies and equipment needed to clean my house. The two gentlemen cleaned and dusted all rooms, wiped down kitchen cabinets, stove, microwave etc. and washed all of the floors.

We hired Xpress Maids to clean our new house before moving in and for our old house after moving out. We were given the same crew for both properties, and they didn't disappoint. The level of detail provided ahead of time set the stage for how thorough they were on both jobs. Needless to say, they exceeded our expectations!

I was surprised to see 3 people come in to clean!! House looks really good and they were kind to all my critters. My only suggestion would be to vacuum before the mopping. I would hire again.

I use a maid service for my own house so I was expecting similar services when I hired this company to clean my parents' home. Well this is not a maid service, but that's okay and I think it worked out well. They seem to specialize in bigger jobs, which is what my parents' house was. There was so much dust and dirt everywhere that I couldn't do it anymore. One man showed up and in 4 hours he cleaned the inside and outside of all the many windows in their ranch, made the bed, dusted all of the furniture and straightened up the books, dusted the filthy blinds insofar as he could, swept, mopped and vacuumed. A maid service would have come with a large team and left the place spotless in 3 hours, but they would not have done the windows or hauled away some of the large trash. I think for an initial cleaning of a house this size it might have cost a bit more. So the house looks much better now, and I didn't have to do it myself. That's all I wanted.

I was looking for a house cleaner to just help me get my life and house back on track. We are a super busy family of 5 and always on the go. Monica was prompt in her calls to me, stayed in Constant communication and arrived earlier than her team to set out our initial plan. We went over pricing, items and rooms to be done and I let her and the team take over. Both my husband and I were very impressed with the quality of work. Everything was sparkling clean! She revitalized my home! I’m looking forward to seeing them again!

They did a fantastic job with my home. They used the best products and everything was done perfectly. She was prompt and completed the service in time she estimated. My house smells good and it is super clean. And they respected the COVID guidelines by wearing mask! Would definitely hire again.

First of all this was the easiest deep cleaning job any cleaning crew could ever hope to receive, cuz the house was practically empty and for the most part everything cleaned. Except for being dusted and all the nooks and crannies. Like dusting, cleaning the interior windows and the tracks. Cleaning out the cabinets and drawers, ect. The crew they sent over did a half ass job. I was scrapping stuff off the windows with my finger nail, that they apparently had already washed. Not to mention they didn’t even so much as clean our laundry room whatsoever. Nor did they wash the windows in my laundry room. When I sent a picture of the filthy windows they didn’t clean in the laundry room. They first tried saying it was the exterior of the windows which they do not clean nor did I expect them to. Then when they could see that it so very painfully obviously it was not the exterior but the interior. They then tried saying it was the basement and they don’t do basements. Except my home has no basement and is a try level. Not to mention all the dust they did not even try removing. There where cobwebs going from my light fixtures to the walls and ceilings. I could write my name in dust in half the things in my house. Including a table and chairs that’s we kept in our family room. They didn’t even clean the window tracks completely. If they cleaned them at all. Like I said the job was very incomplete, and half ass. It was far from what I’d consider a “deep clean”. Rather more like a “half ass once over”.

I wish I could leave zero stars. This was supposed to be a move out clean. Speedy Clean gives a list of things that will be accomplished and they definitely did nothing more than a regular clean. They cleaner took 3.5 hours to clean 2.5 bathrooms, vacuum one hallway, sweep the master and walk in, and sweep three rooms downstairs. I could have done this in an hour and a half. Additionally, they were not done. She left telling me she'd return. She did not. The kitchen was not touched. No one contacted me to reschedule. Because the new owners were moving in, I had to clean the house myself. This company is anything but Speedy and is completely untrustworthy. They have offered me a discount on their bad work, but it doesn't even come close to making up for the lack of work that was done and the hassle they caused me while moving out.

Very very disappointing experience. Not at all worth the price. I wasted my time & money. Never hiring again. Charged $300 for the Move-in Deep Clean of a 2700 square foot house which was already pretty clean and didn’t even do a basic standard cleaning. I had to go over many spots myself for a few hours the next day. They don’t have any respect for the client’s time. When they take all the details about the property, they should come well equipped, not just the cleaning supplies, but other things as well to reach the hard to reach spots like under the beds. Two people were promised for the job but Only one showed up at 10 AM and all she did was just some (time pass) surface level cleaning till her Boss arrived, which was almost at 3 PM. Then they both continued cleaning till 6PM. I had to cancel my other plans for the day because of their improper planning and coordination. Though Her Boss is a bit good at the job, I would never hire them again. I’m just adding one photo of a closet. I could add more worst photos but I already wasted enough time with this company. If this is how they work on a decent enough clean property, I really wonder what they do with a terribly dirty place...!!!

I have never been so impressed with a house cleaner before I met Jazmine. She clearly went above and beyond to tackle a home that has seen neglect for awhile. Attention to detail, striving for perfection and continued willingness to make sure all was ok, not to mention the respect that she showed for my belongings. Cannot say enough good things. Truly blessed to have met this young lady as well as her brother who also assisted her today! 👍 For both of them!!!!!
