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.

They did a pretty good job cleaning. All the floors and counters were cleaned well. The toilets and sinks were not cleaned well, and the kitchen cabinets were not wiped down at all. Still happy to have a clean house.

Just had my first "deep clean" finished and it made such a difference! It was amazing to walk in to such a clean apartment when I got home, and it is such a stress relief that I don't have to spend a day doing it(when it wouldn't even be this clean!). I would definitely recommend Genie in a Bucket to anyone looking for a house cleaner!

Jennifer is the real deal! Came home to a wonderfully clean house with much more done than I expected. The bathrooms and kitchen are spotless, and every surface is well-dusted. The house even had a faint, pleasant scent of vanilla when I came home. Worth every penny!

I needs my house cleaned after a renter moved out and Paula sent a two person crew that had that place sparkling from top to bottom in just four hours!

They were very quick in responding to the initial inquiry, and when the appointment had to be rescheduled it was done fast and easily, which I really appreciated. They showed up when they said they would, got to work right away, and they did an amazing job! The house was a mess with so many little places with years of gunk and dust, but they saw all those details without being pointed to them and got them cleaned. Thank you so much for the great cleaning work!!

I contacted this company and within 20 minutes they emailed me back. Within half a day I had my first appointment set up with them. They came out today Monday and two men were at the door. Yes I was surprised to see two men however after watching these two guys work it is a blessing. They not only cleaned this house they were able to move things easily and could clean under them. They were very thorough and nice. The pictures I included are from a 10 year old stove that now looks brand new also both of my sinks were terrible and now they are shiny. These people know how to clean! I found them in my nextdoor neighborhood so I thought they were local. Upon talking to the gentleman they were from Ohio however they are up here in Michigan all over everyday! So no worries there at all. I am glad I took a chance on this company and they will be the ones to help me with my house I hope forever more.

My SpeedyFriends, I must say, I am impressed. I came in expecting that my disaster would be transformed into something that would be a realistic result and not a unrealistic expectation of luxury. I get it, I let my house go, but Lindsay came in and was very open to suggestions, asked good questions and clean my place for an artistic recharge. I feel as though, she was actually listening to how I wanted everything. I sincerely appreciate her. Not to mention, the individual I spoke with prior, which was absolutely spectacular with how fast that customer service op handles it. I said, "Help me, I have an immediate cleaning emergency." They assured me that I could in fact, have someone come to me within the next couple of hours. Hands down, impressed with the overall experience. I stayed pretty open minded about how the experience was going to turn out, not particular. That is where I found the most gratification. I appreciate you all for returning the favor! Sincerely, Joshua B. P.S. Next cleaning will be for a deep clean.
