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.

I needed someone right away for a move-out cleaning job. Rosaly was very responsive and did an excellent job on the house. I wish I could hire her again to clean the house I moved into, but it's out of her area. Darn!! I would not hesitate to recommend her!

They came in went right to work and got it all done and it look a lot better and now dust seen anymore.

This was the first time having to pay someone to clean my house so I was a little nervous about it. Brandi was very nice and did a great job. I had to leave and when I returned, I was overwhelmed. It was so nice to come in to such a clean place. My house is new and she gave it that new feeling again. My seven year old even bragged about how nice it was. :) I definitely feel I made the right decision.

Hired for a deep cleaning of 1300 sq ft house. Ceilings were popcorn , needed to be cleaned. Walls were dirty and cobwebs everywhere. Did a thorough job. 3 lovely ladies spent 8 hours and dusted and cleaned everything including bookcases. Prompt and courteous and did anything we asked. Cleaned behind refrig and stove. Washed all floors, vacuumed very well. Did backporch which was in bad shape. Smelled and was clean. Polished every piece of wood furniture. Bathrooms sparkled. Very thorough

These ladies worked very quickly and efficiently. They were very kind to me and my baby, and got into our house and went straight to work! Getting a move-in clean was just what we needed to be able to begin our process of settling into our new home, and I would definitely hire them again for regular cleanings! Thank you!

I enjoyed working with Mary. She was quick to respond to my request and work with me to find the best date to schedule the cleaning. They did a wonderful job, and I was so happy coming home to a clean, beautiful house after a long day at work. Very attentive to your specific needs They even ran my laundry and cleaned up the front porch--which was a HUGE help. I look forward to using them on a regular basis.

Lupitas Cleaning Service did a wonderful job! They went above and beyond, coming back 2 days in a row because we still had carpet being put in. They were on time, friendly and did a MORE than thorough job! Every inch of our house is spotless and ready for our Open House! They made a tiring stressful time for us so much easier! I will absolutely be calling them again.

We requested a move-out cleaning. Originally we were told 2 people were going to come, but only one did. he did a very through job for about half of the house, but seems to have lost steam for the second half. I understand as it is an almost 2400 sqft house. After calling back they sent the woman out again, and unfortunately she didn't really resolve the issues as there was still quite a bit of dirt in the corners of the kitchen and pantry. Called back again and the owner came out with another guy, but they didn't get it all either. We're going to need to clean the kitchen floor corners and baseboards again. Overall, they were decent.
