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 often should you have your house cleaned?

The frequency you should have your house cleaned depends on several factors, and the best professional house cleaner can give you a rough estimate of costs so you can budget how often you need someone to clean your home. 

Daily house cleaning may be necessary if you have a home with a large number of bedrooms with young children and kids, although other homeowners may benefit from weekly house cleaning. A weekly cleaner can clean the bathroom, kitchen, do laundry, vacuum and mop. An occasional deep house cleaning is most beneficial for people who have recently renovated a home or are looking to do a spring clean. 

Reviews for Lansing house cleaners

The best cleaning service I've ever had. In 3 hours my home was spotless. I am hiring them to clean my house every week.

I have never hired someone to clean my house but decided to try it out as I’ve been particularly busy with work lately. I found Phyllis on Thumbtack and decided she had some good reviews so I’d try it out with her. They did an amazing job for a very reasonable price. I cannot believe how clean the house is - to the point where I didn’t even realize places that my house was dirty. I intended to hire them for just the one time, but I’ve decided to set up a bi-weekly schedule for cleaning. I would highly recommend Phyllis and her team to anyone looking for a house cleaning.

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!

I've had a great experience with Hannah! Very professional, friendly, and does a great job getting into all the nooks and crannies of my old house. I love coming home to a fresh, clean house after she's been there with her team.

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!

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!

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!
