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 Asheville house cleaners

I was happy to return to a very clean house. Even the inside of the microwave was clean!

I had a good experience overall in terms of professionalism, responsiveness, value, and such. However, it seems this person is more comfortable with staging houses or cleaning houses that have been moved out of. She did not seem comfortable cleaning a house that is lived in, and I did not get the amount of deep cleaning I was hoping for. In the future, I would look for someone who has an expertise in deep cleaning lived-in houses. This company is best for what they are comfortable with.

Maria responded quickly to my request for a deep clean, and communicated well about her timing to clean the house. She honored my request to have the house cleaned before an event on Saturday. Maria paid attention to the details of cleaning our older home, including the walk-in shower and cleaning the windowsills. We will use her company again.

I needed my house cleaned last second and luckily there was an opening. Monika responded quickly and was able to clean the next day. She was really awesome about working around my schedule as well. The house looks and smells amazing. Was definitely worth the price and awesome to come home to such a clean place. Thanks a ton!

We have a baby and really let our house get out of hand, Imani showed up right when she said she would and spent several hours deep cleaning the house. The house now looks like it did when we bought it and it hasn’t looked this clean in over a year! Will 100% be hiring her on a regular basis from now on!

I was in a bind... I am selling my home and a house cleaner who was supposed to come clean prior to real estate showings called at the last minute saying she would not be able to make it (with a legitimate reason). I searched ThumbTack and reached out to Elite Cleaning (at 6:30 in the am). I received a message back in under 15 minutes and within 30 minutes of my initial contact, we had scheduled an appointment for later that day (miraculously they had an opening). Since then, Monika has been to the house a couple of times and has done a great job. I am currently out of town but feel very relieved that Monika will be able to keep an eye on my house to make sure it is sparkling clean for all house showings. Thank you Monika, you're the best!

Rebekah is wonderful! She cleans my house once a week and does such a thorough job. I have four kids so this is not an easy task. The first deep clean was very impressive as well. I would highly recommend her for cleaning, organizing, and keeping your space looking great!

After Maria and her co- worker finished cleaning my home looked sparkling and even better- smelled fresh and clean. We have two hound dogs and two cats and having an odor free home is something I thought was impossible. The day after my house was cleaned we had two guests who had never been to our home before and the first thing they said when they walked in was, "Your house smells so good!" Maria is a pleasure to talk with and is clearly passionate about her work. I highly recommend MS Cleaning.

April Self is a professional. She listened, asked questions for clarification and went to the task of cleaning! On day one, she and her husband Zack were an efficient and pleasant team as they deep cleaned our home. I look forward to working with April for our regular house cleaning tasks! Ellen M

Peggy did a wonderful job for us for a move out cleaning. She was easy to communicate with, offered to deep clean aspects of the house I didn't originally have and all for a great value. Would definitely recommend and use again. Thank you!

Fany not only did a great job cleaning, she is helping me organize my house! Having just had a baby, I was feeling pretty hopeless about my house ever looking better but in two short hours, Fany and Rolsalia turned it around.
