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.

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.

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. 

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.

How do I choose the best house cleaning service?

When searching for the best house cleaning service near you, consider the depth of your cleaning needs, your budget and the size and condition of your home. Read reviews from verified customers of any cleaning service that you’re looking to hire. Also, check out the reviewers’ photos and do background checks on reviewers to ensure they’re not employed by established cleaning firms or maid agencies.

They arrived on time and went right to work. They erased 10 years of rental grime and made the house house 1. Look clean and 2. Smelled clean. The bathrooms were scary. When they left, they were spotless. Yes, you can hire less expensive crews, but i got results with this contractor.

The team was extremely professional and polite and did an amazing job on our home! We signed on right away for no-weekly cleanings! Plus, I like that we will have the same team cleaning our house each time. Highly recommend Xpress Maids!

I was very pleased with D’s Quality Cleaning Service. I have had other cleaning companies come to clean my house and I haven’t been very happy with the results. I always felt like I had to go back through and clean what was overlooked. I didn’t have to do that with Denise and her team. They took care of everything they said they would!

Gowens responded to a last minute request to do a whole house cleaning. Stephen came over the next day to scope it out and brought his crew in the next day. They accomplished so much while here. I was ready for the showing the next day. And sold the house! Would definitely use Gowens again.

Gowens Good Cleaning is doing an excellent job for our house with a 2-year old toddler. He is always on time and inform us before on the way and after all set. Everything is cleaned and organized after each time he is here. We are so happy with his service.

Tiffany has been the most reliable cleaning service provider I have ever had. She shows up on time every week, and works efficiently and thoroughly to make sure everything is cleaned exactly the way I like it. Her customer service attitude really sets her apart from her competition - she is always willing to do whatever I need to make sure my house is perfectly clean every time

Paige is a very professional and friendly young woman. She showed up on time, evaluated our home and got to work. Our house gleams! We hadn't done a good cleaning in a long time. We asked her to clean the inside windows, which involves taking screens out. She did a very good job with that finicky task. Our shower looks like new. Paige's quote was the most expensive of the four quotes I received by quite a bit. we discussed that before she came. When she got here, she was prepared to look through the house and revise her price. It was still higher than the others, but she seemed to be the only one to understand the first cleaning would be deeper and more extensive than recurring cleanings. We definitely got our money's worth! Great job, Paige!

I can't believe how much money my family wasted on paying for a cleaner who did such a terrible job. First - when we called to set up the cleaning, we stated we needed bathrooms sanitized with bleach. The purpose of hiring a cleaner is that I'm pregnant and moving into a house. Before moving in, I wanted things bleached to ensure everything is clean and sanitized. I don't want to breathe in bleach while pregnant, so that's why I decided to hire a maid. When they arrived, they stated they only will use natural products, even though we had requested bleach over the phone. I feel they tricked us by not telling us at the time of the call that they would not be able to meet our request. I could have just cleaned the home myself, using natural products. And in fact, I ended up having to clean everything again, because nothing was clean. I honestly don't even know what they did. The attached picture is indicative of what I encountered when I wiped down the surfaces of the home. Just dust everywhere. We asked them to do a deep clean - emphasizing the importance of cleaning the bathrooms and interior of cabinets and all floors. The bathroom toilets and the shower floors were noticeably cleaner in two of the three bathrooms, so I do appreciate that, but I'm still irritated because I asked for bleach. The third bathroom smelled like urine after they left, so I don't think they cleaned it. I could have cleaned the toilets myself using a natural cleaner. Apart from that, I don't think they did anything additional cleaning, as you can see from the attached photo - that was just me wiping down just one kitchen cabinet drawer. This type of dirt and dust was everywhere in the home. We called to complain and spoke to Nick. He apologized but would not offer us a discount or refund and refused to make it right in any way. I'm really surprised. It seems like his company stole from us - promised cleaning services, did a terrible job and took our money. Very disappointing!

I feel very fortunate to have come upon Samantha's resume, I had researched several companies and none of them felt like a match to me. Sam was here on time, brought all her equipment and honestly my house never smelled so good.; that feeling one gets when they get a new car because it smells so good! She cleaned all the corners where a mop couldn't reach and no one else was that thorough. My stainless appliances were spotless, I never got them that clean. Nice gal with a great personality. Thank you Sam. Karen Dickerman
