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.

What a pleasure it is dealing with Heather! From the moment I inquired about a deep cleaning of my home through the coming home to sparkling clean house has exceeded all my expectations. I have already scheduled my next cleaning and plan to hire Heather on a regular basis.

Moving into a new house is never easy and having the previous owners trash the place didn’t help. April was able to help me out on short notice to do a deep cleaning of a 3brd/3bath house in one evening and a few hours the next day. She is personable, professional, and thorough. I highly recommend her.

Carrie was awesome. She had a situation arise at another client's house the day of our initial cleaning. She communicated with us that she would be late, which is the kind of customer service I expect. Once she got there she went through and cleaned each room thoroughly. The results were beyond our expectations. I would highly recommend C&C Cleaning.

Very nice and professional but didn’t completely clean my house. Spent $85 and she only cleaned 3 bathrooms and 1 bedroom. Have never booked a cleaning where they didn’t clean the kitchen and living room (usually included in price), but I suppose that’s partially my fault I should have asked. She cleaned the bathrooms very well (besides the mirrors)! However my bedroom she did not clean at all! Dust still on furniture and didn’t vacuum the carpet in my room (pictures attached for reference). Next time will just wait for my usual cleaner to open up and be patient...

Jose originally quoted me a price which I thought was a little low since my house is on the larger size and I wanted a thorough cleaning. My baseboards and blinds hadn't been really cleaned in months. I expressed my concern and Jose came over and gave me a quote which was higher. I expected it to be higher but wanted to be sure the quote was accurate - I didn't want any surprises at the end and neither did Jose. The only surprise I got at the end was a really clean house. I was thoroughly impressed by the work he and his crew did. They arrived on time, brought all of their own supplies and equipment and met all of my expectations and more. They went right to work and I didn't see anyone "taking a break" or "wasting time". They worked very hard and asked me as they went along if I was happy or if they missed anything. Jose even chipped in a little but came back several times to make sure everything was going okay. I will be using J.A. Cleaning on a bi-weekly basis now to make sure my house is clean all of the time instead of waiting for it to become more of a "spring" or "fall" cleaning. Thank you to Jose and his crew. They were very professional, friendly and did a wonderful job.

Incredible service by this company! They came out on short notice to deep clean a house we just purchased. They delivered excellent service even with all the chaos of a move taking place around them. Will definitely be contacting them about regular service.
