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. 

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.

How do I choose the best house cleaning service?

When searching for the best house cleaning service near you, consider the depth of your cleaning needs, your budget and the size and condition of your home. Read reviews from verified customers of any cleaning service that you’re looking to hire. Also, check out the reviewers’ photos and do background checks on reviewers to ensure they’re not employed by established cleaning firms or maid agencies.

I hired them last minute but Maria and Gladys did an excellent job on our house. With a dog, a cat and a child, our house desperately needed a thorough cleaning. I left them a key to our house and our house looked and smelled so clean when we walked in from work. Loved it! Can't wait for her to come back in 2 weeks!

Aisha is great! She’s super friendly, very responsive and her crew does an awesome job. I was selling my house and used her service to clean it before the final closing inspection. House looks great, I highly recommend hiring her and her crew!

Maria arrived on-time, very friendly, cleaned the areas requested very well. The aroma of cleaning solution hit you before you entered the house, which I love. She didn't realize that there was a second side to the one bathroom since there was a door, but without hesitation she offered to come back the next day and clean for us.

They did an excellent job on short notice. We bought a house and the previous owners left it dirty. The kitchen, the bathrooms, the floors, they didn’t clean anything before they moved out. Lupita’s cleaning service came the day before we were scheduled to move in and they did an amazing job. You couldn’t tell the previous owners left the house a mess. Everything looked great when we got there. It was such a relief to not have to spend hours scrubbing a dirty house before we could unload the moving truck after a long drive. I will definitely be a repeat customer. I recommend them highly.

Moved into a new house that was vacant for 3 months and was left with some serious grime every where. They restored my oven to look almost new, took their time scrubbing and cleaning every crevice. After 4 hours of cleaning their butts off, I am relieved and love the results. Hannah took the time to listen to my worries. Definitely worth every penny and I will be calling Hannah and her team again!!

Aisha did an amazing job cleaning the house we are getting ready to sell in Sanford. She responded immediately to all my questions and was very professional. The quality of her work was very important to her and it showed with the final result. We would definitely use Nonno Luci again in the future.

She left for a dentist appointment and returned almost 2 hours later. It turned out she stated she had the dates mixed up. She had left her Mom there cleaning during this time. They came at 2:30 pm and left close to 9 pm. She was in such a hurry to finish, the master bath was not cleaned very well at all. Any of it. Also, hall leading to laundry area. After they left, I cleaned Master bathroom and baseboards. I returned the next day and had to vacuum carpet areas again and missed baseboards throughout house. I would not recommend at all. This was the first time ever hiring someone to clean, but we had sold the home, and it was empty. I felt it would be an easy deep clean. Very disappointed and gave her a big check before checking everything. A very long day!

We just had our first cleaning session a week ago. The crew was very nice, responsive and responsible. They made sure they understood our needs and provided us. They were also very sweet with our dog. They are welcomed in our house and we will have them over regularly. I highly recommend their services!

Maria cleaned my house today for the first time. I will definitely have her back. She and her partner spent 3 hours and did a very thorough job. Not only was the service she provided excellent, but she is also very personable and friendly. Plan to have her come regularly now. Very pleased.

Terrific job! The ladies took their time to make our house look spotless. Climbing tall ladders to reach high windows, wiping walls, baseboards, etc. I haven't seen my oven that clean since I bought my stove. All in all, fantastic results!! Will hire them over and over again. Thanks!

Maria cleans our house and spent 5 hours here and left it immaculate! The floors have never looked better. I mentioned a small issue with our toilet (it had a small amount of grime in the bottom of the bowl) and she offered to come out the next day to fix it. She took out our trash and is very communicative. I'm very pleased with the work she's done!
