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.

How long does it take to clean a house professionally?

Generally, getting your house cleaned professionally can take several hours. The time it takes for house cleaners to complete their job depends on the size of your home, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms you have, the type of service you require and the condition of your house. It also might depend on how many employees are cleaning and the supplies they are using. If you get recurring cleaning services, the first visit might take a bit longer than the subsequent visits. 

When choosing the best house cleaner for you, ask for an estimate about how long their services will take.

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.

How much does it cost to deep clean a house?

Deep cleaning a house goes beyond the surface level to clear out the dust, grime and gunk that’s collecting on the fan blades, hiding in the blinds, and built up inside the refrigerator drawers. Deep cleaning of a home or apartment costs more than regular house cleaning because it takes more time, effort, and cleaning products. You may choose to have a deep cleaning once or several times a year in addition to your standard cleaning services. You may have a one-time deep cleaning to prepare for company or to clean after a house party. Companies may charge an hourly rate or a price per square foot, or may offer you a flat rate after they have visited your home and estimated work time. The national average house cleaning price is $110-$150, with rates ranging higher for deep-cleaning services. Here are some examples of how a company may calculate their deep-cleaning prices:

  • 10 cents per square foot (compared with 5 cents per square foot for standard house cleaning).
  • $300 for a 3,000-square-foot home.
  • $25 per hour per worker for deep-cleaning services.

We are very disappointed in the cleaning services we received from Thompson and Thompson. We recently just moved into a new home, and hired Thompson and Thompson to do a deep cleaning prior to moving in. The people who lived in the house before us had a cat and a dog, and we wanted to have the house professionally cleaned due to allergies. We originally were thrilled with the estimate from the cleaning service. Our house is 1,000 square feet and the ONLY thing that would be in the way of cleaning that would have to be moved would be a TV and mini fridge. Nothing else was in the home, making it easy to clean. Unfortunately, after walking through the house after the cleaners left, we were confused on what was completed in the 5 hours they were over. There was visible dust and dirt on fans, blinds, floors, cabinets and in the corner of walls. The floor still had a ton of dirt, and we had to re-clean and swifter and mop. Our swifter was full of dirt and hair after cleaning ONE room, showing no trace of prior cleaning. Thompson and Thompson did clean our stove and refrigerator, but unfortunately this was the ONLY thing that we were satisfied with. We were completing yard work outside while the house was being cleaned, and when we walked in, the TV was on and had been changed to wrestling. They also continuously moved our air conditioning down to 65 degrees, after we had already set to a reasonable temperature when they arrived. Hiring Thompson and Thompson created more work for us in the end, as we had to re-clean our entire home. We would NOT recommend their cleaning service.

Amazing job! They came in to deep clean the grimy house we just moved in. We now have a spotless house that looks, smells and feels great. These people work hard and are a great value for what they charge. Will definitely hire them again!

I live out of state and hired Kelly over the phone to clean my mother's house. She went to the trouble of contacting my Mom to make detailed arrangements without complaint, showed up on time, and did a good job cleaning. Thanks!

I purchased a deep clean package for my daughter and son-in-law so their new house was clean when they moved in. My daughter said Lameka was very nice and the house was move-in ready. She stopped by before the job was finished and it said Lameka and her partner were working very hard. Lameka responded quickly to my communications. I made a good decision by choosing 4 Seasons and would hire them again.

Nevaeh was professional and courteous as we made arrangements for her to do a spring clean of my house. She and her team were on time, got right to work and were very pleasant. They did a wonderful job, everything was clean and smelled lovely! The best recommendation I can give is that I have already hired them to come back on a regular basis. Thanks!

Nevaehs Swift Cleaning was just what the business states they are. Fast but thorough hitting every inch of the house and paying close attention to detail. I was blown away at how nice a job they did and will now be a continuing bi-weekly Customer with the original idea of having then just do a deep clean. They were so impressive I had them “sign me up”. Thanks Ladies as I had been searching a long time for cleaners that could meet my standards.

I hired this team to help clean up my parents' house, which was in bad shape. I showed them pictures, and Marlene agreed to come out. The job was HARD, but she and her team went above and beyond the call of duty. They even helped us move furniture and boxes I was not able to move myself. They stayed for about six hours and worked with stamina the whole time. They made my parents' house liveable again. Thank you.
