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 Springfield house cleaners

Ready Cleaning Services really helped me out with a last minute move-in/out cleaning on a new house I just bought. The house was a mess and I needed to get it cleaned before I started moving things in, and they were able to fit me in last minute, and did a fantastic job. They got the grimy oven cleaner than I thought possible, and same with the fridge! I will definitely be using them again in the future!

The house was not any cleaner than what I could have done. Her 2nd time here only lasted 45 minutes. That doesn't seem like enough time to really clean. My husband's Cologne went missing.

So far, having Rhonda clean my house has been great. Rhonda is meticulous, punctual, hard working and just what I want.

my house never looked so good. I get the same person every time and that is important to me. I highly recommend Clean Up MO LLC.

I hired Lo's Cleaning for a move out job on a 4 bedroom house. She came on time, worked hard for 4 hours, did excellent work, was pleasant and respectful. Yeah, I would hire her again And, in fact, I did for monthly cleaning at my new address. She was so good I felt I needed to reward her with a generous tip.

My husband and I live in a friends rental house. We needed a place to live fast so we moved in before they had a chance to get it cleaned. And with both of us working almost full time with three dogs we just couldn't seem to keep up with everything. Dave and his assistant came in and cleaned for us and things shine in our home and we didn't know could shine!! We couldn't be more pleased! They took such time and care to move everything and clean behind and under stuff in our kitchen and put that stuff back in an organized fashion. Our stovetop and front of our dishwasher have never looked so clean! Also there is not a single dog hair in our house! And we have an English setter and a Great Pyrenees, so there is normally dog hair everywhere!! I would definitely recommend this company to anyone and everyone:) They also have the best rates!

Thank you for coming and giving us an estimate. Our house is very large and I could tell from the way you talked you would be very professional and clean everything very well. That being said, I think your bid was fair for what you said you would do, however it is more that we could pay for weekly cleaning. I am very sorry that we won't be using you. Steve
