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. 

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 were good--very Punctual and Friendly. My house did not smell fresh after they left. Also used a swifter duster to dust---does not work very well--should be dusting the whole item--not just the top of item. Some items may require a clean moist towel to really clean an item. Thank you!!

We just moved into a house and it was left very dirty. Emerald Cleaners responded to my request very quickly and put a lot of extra effort to get the old grease out of the gas stove top. High quality work.

I hired them to do a deep clean on the house that I was moving into- there was no furniture and the house was already pretty clean. I detailed what I needed done in my request- baseboards cleaned, oven cleaned, outside of kitchen cabinets scrubbed, etc. None of that was done. When they arrived (30 minutes before the agreed upon time but luckily I was at the location) I tried to go over what I wanted done and was told they would do what was noted in my request, stupidly I believed them. They vacuumed but didn't do the back of the stairs. When they are just about done I get the bill but they don't accept cards, which I didn't know beforehand so I had to go to the bank to get cash and was not able to check there work, I even tipped them- not knowing what a subpar job had been done. They did fit me in on short notice but none of the things I wanted done were done and the other cleaning (of my empty already clean house) were not done well so I feel like I just flushed money down the drain. Normally I don't bother leaving bad reviews but they obviously don't even realize what a bad job they did because they actually requested a review from me! Best advice I can give- 1. Listen to your customers and do what they request. 2. Don't squeeze people in just to do a quick subpar job. You would have more return customers and less bad reviews if you took your time to do quality work instead of just quickly running through someone's house "cleaning" in an hour

Tanner and Spencer went above and beyond any and all my expectations. They are amazing and I can’t thank them enough for all their hard work. My house didn’t look this sparkly and shiny when I moved it. The really blew me away. So kind, courteous and they were working at top speed the whole time they were cleaning. They were an absolute joy and I am beyond satisfied. Thanks to them and Diamond Dusters. Both Tanner and Spencer do this cleaning company such a service.
