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 Lakeville house cleaners
Thumbtack Customer
This is a very mixed review - we lost our house cleaner due to school conflicts and we were in search for a new regular. Amanda said the first clean would be more $$$ which I agreed to. After that we wanted weekly cleaning. She did a good job of cleaning our house, but the price of $170 was a bit steep. Our house is less than 2100 sq feet - 2 bed/2bath and she didn’t even hit the basement. We confirmed last week that Friday she would come back. Well a week has passed. She did not show up on our scheduled date and no contact when we reached out to see where she was or if she was even coming. This is extremely disappointing. If she didn’t want the regular job, please inform us so we are now on a new search for a new cleaner. She had a week to reach out to us. Sorry it didn’t work out because we were really looking forward to our regularly clean house again!

I am very happy with the house cleaning in my kitchen, light fiixtures, stove top, vacuuming the couch and under the coushions. I'm scheduling her every other week. 🤗

I am pretty disappointed. The initial estimate and meeting went well but the first time my home was cleaned only two people came when I was told there would be three coming to clean each week. I had to send several text messages asking for items that were supposed to be cleaned to either be cleaned or to take extra time to be cleaned. Some items were not cleaned that are on the list of items to be cleaned on their website and on the last time that the company came to clean the front door was opened too hard and I heard a bang which I thought was maybe a vacuum being dropped or something. I came into the house maybe 30 minutes later to be told there was a hole in my wall bear where the front door opens (and can hit when the door is slammed open) and was told it was there before and my kids must have done it. I was very unhappy that my kids were blamed for something that they did not do. I had just opened that door before the cleaners came to bring my kids to the bus stop and there was no mark on my wall at that time. I also heard how hard the door was thrown open. We take pride in our home and just ask that others do as well. I hired a cleaning service to help me as my daughter had recently been diagnosed with a medical issue and it's just too unfortunate.

I’m so glad I chose jasmine and her family crew to take care of my new three-floors (5 BR) house for a deep cleaning. Very sweet and polite people, hard working at a very fair rate compare to all the fancy farts out there with their big names and bombastic ads and image on thumbtack. Will definitely use them again sooner or later after we move in! Roei.
