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.

I hired Diana for one time house cleaning services as a gift for friends expecting a baby. She gladly delivered a gift certificate. Even a short chat gave me confidence in her character and dedication to her work. I will hire her to clean my house as well.

They were very professional and responsible. Their staff is bilingual (English and Spanish) which makes everything easier for me. They presented a very detailed proposal so I approved it, then they made a great job when they cleaned my house the first time. I will hire them again soon.

Betsy, Janae, and Paige cleaned our home and they were fabulous. We requested a deep clean and they worked for 3 hours from top to bottom. Not only were they excellent, thorough and efficient, they were also very pleasant. It had been some time since the whole house was scrubbed and they left nothing undone. The bathrooms and kitchen sparkled and every room was dusted, including bookshelves, tables, artwork, baseboards and sills. When I called, I asked to be cleaned within 2 days and they were more than able to accommodate us. I highly recommend!!

***********PLEASE READ THIS***************** I thought a lot before posting this message. Angela and her partner arrived late but worked hard to clean our house. We were impressed by their work. But Angela lost our trust because she stole personal belongings of my wife worth $100 from the master bathroom closet and broke the closet door into the process. I called and confronted her and she showed no remorse whatsoever. If someone accused you of stealing while providing service you will be livid and would go to any length to confront them..but her reaction over the phone was one of that she got found out. And what bothers me is that I even gave her a good tip for the good work. My wife and I absolutely shocked and we paid a price for not checking her background. In fact we are absolutely disappointed that Thumbtack has allowed her business to provide service without checking background. We already contacted local PD and we stopped short of pressing charges. But we will approach BBB as well to report this. Please understand we are not the kind of people who want someone's reputation to take a hit. But we paid the price for being friendly and nice and got daylight robbed!!!!
