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.

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.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a house cleaner when social distancing?

If you hire a house cleaner to clean the inside of your home, do not make physical contact. Stay at least 6 feet apart at all times, sanitize any surfaces after cleaning and wash your hands thoroughly. Exchange all payments digitally instead of with cash. When contacting a house cleaner, put a plan in place to ensure everyone's safety.

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.

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.

Should I hire a move-out cleaning service or do it myself?

You may benefit from hiring a professional move-out cleaning service, depending on your budget, time frame and whether you will be getting a deposit back. Hiring a cleaning service takes the stress out of your move. But if you’ve had your house regularly deep-cleaned, or if your landlord will charge you for cleaning anyway, you can save costs by DIY-ing it.

How long does it take to clean a house professionally?

Generally, getting your house cleaned professionally can take several hours. The time it takes for house cleaners to complete their job depends on the size of your home, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms you have, the type of service you require and the condition of your house. It also might depend on how many employees are cleaning and the supplies they are using. If you get recurring cleaning services, the first visit might take a bit longer than the subsequent visits. 

When choosing the best house cleaner for you, ask for an estimate about how long their services will take.

How much is a house cleaning?

The national average cost for house cleaning ranges between $25 and $50 per hour, per cleaner. However, the cost of house cleaning services near you might be different.

House cleaning prices vary based on how many square feet your home is, how dirty your house gets and how often the cleaning service comes. And, prices can be lower in areas with a lower cost of living, higher in big cities or affluent regions.

Some companies charge a set amount — such as 5 cents — per square foot, with a minimum amount, such as $100. You may save money by increasing the frequency of your house cleaning visits. Often a company will charge you less per cleaning when you schedule more cleanings per month. The cost advantage rewards your loyalty, and also reflects the fact that more frequent cleanings make it easier to maintain a high level of cleanliness in your home. A housecleaning service may charge more for the first visit or for one-time services than for recurring cleanings.

How much does it cost to deep clean a house?

Deep cleaning a house goes beyond the surface level to clear out the dust, grime and gunk that’s collecting on the fan blades, hiding in the blinds, and built up inside the refrigerator drawers. Deep cleaning of a home or apartment costs more than regular house cleaning because it takes more time, effort, and cleaning products. You may choose to have a deep cleaning once or several times a year in addition to your standard cleaning services. You may have a one-time deep cleaning to prepare for company or to clean after a house party. Companies may charge an hourly rate or a price per square foot, or may offer you a flat rate after they have visited your home and estimated work time. The national average house cleaning price is $110-$150, with rates ranging higher for deep-cleaning services. Here are some examples of how a company may calculate their deep-cleaning prices:

  • 10 cents per square foot (compared with 5 cents per square foot for standard house cleaning).
  • $300 for a 3,000-square-foot home.
  • $25 per hour per worker for deep-cleaning services.
Reviews for Burlington house cleaners
Adnan A.
It was our first time working with Unique Cleaning. We got our house deep cleaned, coming to an understanding with her on what to clean and what not to clean was very easy. She provided a check list and we marked all the items we wanted done and additional details. Her cleaning was thorough. Her communication during the cleaning was professional. We will most certainly call her back for regular cleaning and deep cleaning other parts of our house.

Cleaning with a Meaning did an exceptional job on our deep cleaning. We are moving and they came into our empty home and transformed it into a clean house that we hope will sell quickly. Their communication and professionalism was outstanding. They paid close attention to every little detail. I appreciate walking through the house with them both before and after the cleaning. Thank you so much! I look forward to using your service in the future. :-)

OMG!!! This company has changed my life! After I explained my situation to her, she just asked me what I needed and when I wasn't sure how to go about it, she just took over and cleaned my house. She didn't just clean my house but did so after an already long day! I will definitely be calling her back and if you have cleaning challenges, I implore you to call her....You won't regret it!!

I am really grateful for the last minute booking that this company was able to accommodate. This was for my mother and while I live across the country this company made it easy to communicate. They did a great job compared to the state the house was in. They took a stress off of my shoulders such last minute being able to clean the house

My family and I have been searching for a "wow" cleaner, and I am so glad to say that the search is over! Daniel and his staff are professional, communicating with me before, during and after the sevice. My bathroom tile has never been cleaner and they even cleaned the refrigerator! The hardwood floors were shiny and the whole house smelled great. Zero complaints. A++

Excellent work! My house has never been so clean. This couple paid close attention to detail, cleaned thoroughly and made sure that I was happy before accepting pay. I have paid other people to deep clean my home and have been so disappointed. I love the way it looks today. Plan to use their service biweekly!

This cleaning company is absolutely amazing. The woman I spoke with was professional, responsive, and polite. Any and every concern I had was dealt with and my husband and I were amazed by how clean our house was left. Their pricing was very reasonable and for the amount, you get exactly what you need. You could not go wrong booking them.

These ladies came in and efficiently gave my house the best deep clean it's had since we moved in a year and a half ago. They got into nooks and crannies I forgot even existed. I will definitely be using them again.

The Wife; I never leave reviews but I felt like I would be doing the community a disservice if I didn't this one time. I would like to share with you a guarantee for your money; Crystal Clean Organizing cleaned my house and I must say, it was money well spent! My house is so clean now and it smells amazingly fresh! I am so happy and satisfied with their work that I am ready to have them clean my home on a regular basis. Crystal is not only friendly and professional, she and her employees are very proficient in their work. Because I have two cats that sleep in all five bedrooms, I asked that they pay special attention to the floors; carpet, tile & hardwood. I was very satisfied and impressed by their attention to detail. I would confidently recommend them to anyone and I'm definitely going to tell my family members t
