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.

Karensa exceeded my expectations. I hired her to help clean our cluttered house as a Mothers Day gift for my wife. My wife was very surprised and pleased as she went through the rooms in the house. Thank you Karensa!! We will be hiring her for future cleanings. She is a very pleasant, good-hearted, hard working professional who takes pride in her work.

Stacey came and deep cleaned 2 rooms and I'll most definitely have her back for more. Our house is overfilled with items and she cleaned it all to my liking leaving the fresh scent of vanilla that lasted for days. I appreciated the small conversation that wasn't too much, she got right to work and even filtered the air of dust with a hepa filter while she cleaned the room. Excellent service.

I hired Stacey to clean my house after we moved out. She was very easy to work with and responded quickly to all of my questions. We had 3 cats so she had her work cut out for her! She did a great job making the house move-in ready for the new renters. Thanks for doing such a great job!! I would definitely recommend her services.

I have a very large household, 4 children, 2 extra large dogs and 2 cats. And I had surgery a week ago and nothing has been cleaned in this house for a week! They company showed up on time, they introduced themselves and asked for a small tour then brought everything in to start cleaning. They wiped the walls, they moved the beds (!!) they even moved the 3 piece sectional! Did not even take a break, here from 9 until 3! My house smells wonderful and it is spotless! The price was too affordable and worth so much more then what was charged....so I gave a tip, but worth so much more!

Thank you Stacey! You did an excellent job. I was stood up by another cleaning service. Stacey rearranged her schedule just to fit me in. She is very pleasant and does not mind doing what needs to be done. The house looks great!! Thanks again

I choose this service to clean a small 3 bed, 3 bathroom house and they did an amazing job! They were very accommodating and punctual, with their scheduling and service the day of. They were very efficient with their cleaning and didn't sacrifice quality at all. They also were very receptive to our concerns. When we asked them to spend extra time on the bathrooms and what-not they never hesitated to do those things. Overall a great service done by some very nice ladies!
