Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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?

What is included in a deep house cleaning vs. a basic house cleaning?

A basic house cleaning typically includes tasks like carpet cleaning, wiping countertops, taking out the trash, doing the laundry and washing dishes. A deep house cleaning is a much more involved process, where all aspects of the home are given full attention for a cleanout. In a deep house cleaning, the cleaners will wet-wipe everything from door frames to light switch plates, making sure to also clean walls, windows, air vents, ceiling fans, furniture and more.

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 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. 

When viewing house cleaners on Thumbtack, you might see a Top Pro badge. This indicates that the service is one of the most popular and highly-rated professionals using the platform.

How do I prepare for a house cleaner?

There are several things you can do in preparation for a house cleaning to improve the efficiency and quality of the job. If you’re unfamiliar with a cleaning service, hiding and locking away any obvious valuables lying around can offer great peace of mind.

Depending on the preference of the cleaner, you may need to lock up your pets before the cleaners arrive. Washing dishes and decluttering the house allows a house cleaner to do their job more effectively. And leaving special notes for the cleaners about certain areas in your home that need attention is also helpful.

Ask house cleaners near you about their tips to help you prepare for their 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.

I was delighted with the job Absolute Cleaning Service did on my home! Crissa is dedicated, efficient, personable, and friendly. My plan was a one time deep cleaning but I amgoing to hire ACS to clean my upholstery and do house cleaning again!

Jenna was incredible! Our house is cleaner than it’s ever been and her rates are very competitive. We can’t wait to have her back to clean for us again. I would definitely recommend hiring her.

First time I've had a professional clean my house and I am in love with my house again. I couldn't have asked for more professional work, and for someone with whom I was completely comfortable. A Christmas miracle for me after a crazy year. Thanks!

I am moving and needed the house cleaned. She responded and did a beautiful job. What a worker, in 7 hours took 1 short break. Besides her cleaning abilities she is a most pleasant person. I will have her back!

Kayla did an amazing job cleaning our house! We foster dogs (and our most recent had an issue with ‘marking’) and she didn’t hesitate to take on the challenge of cleaning up after all the messes that come with that (she even specially made a cleaning solution to help remove any lingering smells from floors and baseboards). She was super responsive, punctual and thorough. I highly recommend her!!

Wonderful friendly person. I was scared to let someone come in and clean and it took me forever to take this step. She was super nice and not judgemental and did a great job. 10/10 recommend. I was able to work from home while she was here with 0 interruptions and she is even giving me tips on how to keep it clean in the future. I look forward to having a clean house 🥳

I looked up house cleaning for the sale of my house and found this gem of a man. My cleaning turned into: replacing a bathroom fan, bathroom lite over sink,, bathroom mirror, painting the entire interior of my house( including basement), fixing light switches in the house, pulling up carpets in 2 rooms, fixing plaster, fixing drywall,painting doors, hung vertical blinds, and putting up a new railing for my porch. Some times I was at the house, sometimes I was out of state, but he delivered on what I asked every time. When I asked for an estimate on my never ending list he was more than happy to return my text with a quick estimate. I was very happy with everything he had done in my house. I I had a complaint it would be he doesn't lay carpet, he doesn't haul trash/ cleanouts (yet), and he doesn't refinish wood floors. That being said I would hire him again in a heartbeat. I felt his prices were very reasonable especially for the quality of work.

Crissa is very professional and thorough in her work. Getting my stovetop clean itself was a miracle! She's very personable and great with my cats. The house always smells so fresh after she cleans. She also uses a modern invoice service that tracks her hours worked and the rate of pay. I highly recommend her!

I've been extremely busy with my business and neglected my house terribly. Seize the Clean came in and my home sparkles! This team was courteous, efficient, friendly, and did a wonderful job! And they are quite reasonably priced! I can really relax not having to worry about dust and grime. I'm definitely hiring them again! I suggest you contact them if you want a clean home without having to spend hours cleaning it yourself!

Crew that came to the house for a deep cleaning were very nice and very hard working, did a good job but I felt missed a few things like dusting hanging lights, plant stands, etc. Minor stuff. Be specific maybe I wasn't enough and just assumed those things were automatic in a deep clean. Would I use this company again? Yes.

St. Pete's Maids did an amazing job. Really went above and beyond for everything we asked for. The house smelt amazing. If we need a cleaning again we will definitely hire them again and request the same two girls. More than happy with the service we received!

Can't say enough about my experience with Moriah. I am overseeing a property which we needed to have cleaned prior to the family returning to sort through the personal property. Moriah immediately went out and updated me on the condition of the home and what needed to be done to get the house cleaned and ready for the family. She even sent photos showing the condition of the home! Once I gave her approval, she proceeded to complete the work that same day. She even did some additional work to ensure it was as clean as possible. Definitely recommend using her for any cleaning or sorting needs you have!

WOW is the first word that came to my mind when I came home. Eva did a amazing job, went above and beyond expectations! Not only did the house smell so good, it also looked so clean she even got the bathtub and bathroom sink back to white!! The 8 years I’ve been at this home those sinks where never that white and no other housekeeper did what she did. She even cleaned the inside of the oven. Eva is very detailed and takes pride in her work. I highly recommend hiring her to clean your home.

I had a very good experience getting my house deep cleaned, Shayla and Daniel did a fantastic job with great attention to detail. There was a miscommunication about the quote for the job and the rate, but April was very responsive and worked with me to make sure I was happy. I would highly recommend them and use them again, great quality work!
