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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

For more tips on how to hire the best maid or house cleaning service, read our smart hiring guide.

What is included in a deep house cleaning vs. a basic house cleaning?

A basic house cleaning typically includes tasks like carpet cleaning, wiping countertops, taking out the trash, doing the laundry and washing dishes. A deep house cleaning is a much more involved process, where all aspects of the home are given full attention for a cleanout. In a deep house cleaning, the cleaners will wet-wipe everything from door frames to light switch plates, making sure to also clean walls, windows, air vents, ceiling fans, furniture and more.

How do I prepare for a house cleaner?

There are several things you can do in preparation for a house cleaning to improve the efficiency and quality of the job. If you’re unfamiliar with a cleaning service, hiding and locking away any obvious valuables lying around can offer great peace of mind.

Depending on the preference of the cleaner, you may need to lock up your pets before the cleaners arrive. Washing dishes and decluttering the house allows a house cleaner to do their job more effectively. And leaving special notes for the cleaners about certain areas in your home that need attention is also helpful.

Ask house cleaners near you about their tips to help you prepare for their services.

This was the first time I’ve ever used an online service for house cleaning. I cannot express how thrilled we are with the results. Liz was hired to clean my elderly parents home after they moved out. She did an amazing job. She took all the kitchen drawers out and wiped them clean. We asked her to clean the baseboards and windows blinds and she didn’t disappoint. The house smelled clean when we entered and after a week, it still does. We are thinking of hiring her more often to help my parents in their new home. I’m very pleased that I picked a great Lady to clean the house.

I would recommend DNY cleaning services to everyone, from the initial contact they were very professional and personable. I chose them as they didn't quote a price until they came to my house and conducted a walk through to see exactly what I needed, so I did not have any extra charges. They were punctual and did a fantastic job of cleaning my house. Definitely worth the money!

We were moving out and our lease didn’t require a move out cleaning but we wanted the home cleaned well. I was extremely happy with the cleaning that was done and they went above and beyond but doing more then expected. The house looks and smells wonderful and the cost wasn’t an arm and leg and the appointment time frame was very quick!

Fast response, and amazing work! Had her come in while I was at work and clean the house and for sure a 10/10 job! Will be hiring again if future services are needed

I came to Hurts To Clean with a job I initially thought was far beyond a normal clean. My assumptions were met with the most professional, diligent as well as customer oriented service I have seen in years. They are an incredible team who left my fathers room in his house completely transformed. He has given amazing reviews for Hurts To Clean nonstop during and after the clean up! Thank you kindly!!

We used Humble Eye for a move out clean, and we are amazed with how good the house looks and smells! She cleaned places I never thought to clean before!! She fit us into her schedule quickly and was very fair with her pricing. I was at work and she was so nice to send me an after video. If you need anything done Humble Eye is who you need to call!

N.C. Finest Cleaning service was phenomenal!! They book me on short notice, arrived in a timely manner, and the quality of work is unmatched. We don’t keep a dirty house, but the extra help was noticed immediately when they were finished. Their team arrived and cleaned my kitchen counters, the oven, the carpets, my bathrooms and all three of my bedrooms quickly and efficiently! We will be booking with them again for another clean, and I highly recommend them to anyone in the Jacksonville area!

Degny and her team showed up with huge smiles on their faces and explained the process to me, she even sent me updates about her teams progress, this is really important because I have a large family and a pet. Degny and her team surpassed all my expectations, they moved quickly and quietly, they did a move out clean for me in Carolina Plantations and it was last minute for me to schedule, so her accommodating my short fused request was also very much appreciated. I am moving across the country and I know the work that Degny and her team did for the move out cleaning will ensure the new owners of the house will adore their clean and fresh smelling house! Thank you so much Degny!!!

Awesome service! House looked and smelled amazing. Their attention to detail was impressive, especially since we have 2 dogs and 2 cats. They spent 7 hours deep cleaning my home. Not leaving a single corner uncleaned. Chanel is very friendly and professional. I will definitely be recommending this company to all my friends.
