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 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.

Had a deep clean done and honestly the house probably wasn’t as clean the day it was built. I was amazed and extremely pleased and will keep them on a regular schedule.

I was super impressed with the cleaning. I had the initial deep cleaning to an empty house that we were moving into the next day. I have to say that I'm very pleased with the results as they cleaned everything and are detail oriented. Will definitely use JJ Cleaning for our bi weekly cleaning.

V spent 12 hours cleaning my house and her attention to detail is greater than mine. I am thrilled with everything she did. This is the first time I have ever had someone clean my house and I am wondering why I waited so long.

Excellent work ethic. My wife was out of town so I wanted to surprise her with a clean house but, the job was really too big for me by myself. Theresa jumped in and got moving quickly. The house is clean and I am waiting on the look on my wife’s face when she gets home. Thanks for coming on Sunday to help out with my surprise

Hired Crystal Clean for a one time cleaning before guests arrived. I came home to a fresh, clean scenting house. My quote was a little higher than competing businesses, but I appreciate the fast-responding, last minute service that they were able to provide. Would hire again.

Very quick to reply. Was very understanding about my crazy schedule. Ended up not having her come for the initial project but needed an apartment cleaned and she did that for us with no issue at a great price. Great work. Will be contacting her for cleaning my house again.

Rose and her team were amazing. Punctual, efficient, addressed my concerns and did a fantastic job cleaning my house. All for a very reasonable price. I will definitely be using her regularly

Marsha did such a wonderful job cleaning our house! Before her scheduled arrival time, she let me know she was running a few minutes late. When she arrived, she was friendly and really listened to the list of things I wanted done in the house. She has incredible attention to detail. I have been dissatisfied with more house cleaners than I can count because they often overlook things, but I couldn't find anything to complain about with the job Marsha did. She worked so diligently and left the house looking beautiful. Her price was higher than any of the other quotes I got, but it's completely worth it if you're looking for someone who is reliable and who is going to place such a high value on doing an exceptional job.

I had a great experience working with Jenifer’s company. Arrived on time, was very pleasant and did a spotless cleaning of the house. I’m very glad to have made their acquaintance and look forward to a long term business relationship.
