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.

Maria's work was excellent! We have a 3 bedroom 2 bath house and have realized our strengths are not in cleaning. Maria gave us exactly what we needed and it feels like a new house. She was incredibly kind and thoughtful in cleaning and we can't wait to work with her again.

Solid cleaning job - we needed a top to bottom deep clean on a new house which the prior tenants left very dirty. The team cleaned bathrooms, kitchen (including oven), floors, blinds, and some light fixtures.

We had our entire house cleaned by them. They did a deep cleaning on standard rates. Every aspect of house cleaning was carefully done and did an amazing job. Both the ladies (Maria and co-worker) did a thorough job. From walls, windows, furniture, hardwood floor cleaning, kitchen oven inside and out, Exhaust fan (range hood) etc...was all deep cleaned. They even rearranged bedsheet and made the bed look pretty. They washed our Thrash can too. We highly recommend them and will definitely hire them again.

I reached out to Thumbstack on a holiday asking for cleaning the next day. I had four quick responses and decided to go with Rose's. They actually had the highest price, but my house was in dire need of a cleaning, and her crew of three people did not disappoint! I asked that she have at least 3 people due to the size and state of my home. My house is now clean! I would definitely recommend. I plan on booking again.

Best house cleaner I have ever had! We hired her prior to putting our house on the market and I feel like I’ve missed out the whole time I lived in the Triangle! Also a deep clean was half the price of our old city. If you’re looking for a detailed clean, hire Andrea. She was easy to communicate with and schedule, very responsive to schedule changes, and friendly! She did an amazing job with my house, was meticulous in doing the walls, baseboards, corners, windows, and even behind the washer. I was blown away. She was efficient time-wise and brought her own tools. She is truly amazing!

After a year of a COVID shut-in, it was time for more than a Spring cleaning. Sparkling Clean came through and did a top-notch quality job, affordably and safely. Everyone wore a mask and did an amazing job restoring our house back into pre-COVID shape.

We hired another cleaning service for our pre-open house clean. They took 8+ hours, and charged us a huge amount. For our move out clean we hired Vilma’s. They did 3x the work in 2.5 hours and for a fraction of the cost of their competitor. If we weren’t moving, I would hire Vilma’s in a heartbeat for recurring services. If you want your home cleaned quickly, done extremely well, with affordable pricing, you can’t go wrong with them.

I requested a move out cleaning and steam carpet cleaning for my house the night before I need the job done from Thumbtack. Romero provided a quote soon and scheduled it the next day. I am pretty pleased with the job Romero and his crew did - thorough and attention to details. the price was very reasonable.

Esmeralda cleaned my house for the first time today and I am willing to keep working with her. She does her job great, she is also very sweet. She is reachable as well. I am really a picky person and do not easily like when comes to cleaning. I think she deserves the five stars.
