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. 

When viewing house cleaners on Thumbtack, you might see a Top Pro badge. This indicates that the service is one of the most popular and highly-rated professionals using the platform.

The house was cleaned beautifully. Maurice matched the price we got and even went above and beyond what he had to. Thank you!

Bait and switch tactics. Be careful when requesting services that you are clear in what you’re signing off on or you’ll end up with a half cleaned house for what other providers would charge to clean the whole thing.

Having had a cleaning person for over 15 years I was worried how to pick a new one. But Rina and her team made it real easy to forget. Great value, very professional, and what an amazing job at cleaning. So glad we found Rina’s House Cleaning!

My husband and I moved into a new house yesterday that hadn’t been occupied for a year and it was GROSS. Livia did an AMAZING job cleaning. It looked like a whole new house when she was finished. I wish I had a before and after shot! Livia went above and beyond cleaning and I would definitely recommend her to others in the future. She also responded very quickly and was able to come on less than 24 hours notice which I really appreciated. She was punctual, professional and flexible (we still were unpacking as she was cleaning but she never made us feel like we were in her way). Can’t beat this value at such an affordable price. Thank you Livia!

They did my house okay- they jaut left my sisters house and left it a mess. It was dirtier than wen they started. Didn’t move anything, mopped the floors with dirty water, left everything dusty and left the trash bags on her deck which she didn’t know and then the animals got to it overnight and left trash everywhere. We spent countless hours today cleaning up after them and she is due with her baby tomorrow.

Booked a deep cleaning service with tidypro to prepare for another baby. My house is kept pretty clean to begin with. Seemed more like a quick wipe down of everything and many spots were missed. Dirty water was reused the entire time to mop the floors which are now sticky. Only reason I gave 3 stars is because when I told them they offered to come back. However it was not a convenient time to have them back in my home so it was basically a waste of money for me.

I would highly recommend Telma! She come one day with her mom to go over what we needed done. The day came for them to come and I'm still I amazement! She listened to everything my husband and I expressed. We even told her about my daughter's room and how she has asthma. Telma worked so hard on her room, it's fresh and breathable! She was moving furniture and cleaning things that were hard to get too! My son's room looks brand new. Her mom has an amazing work ethic, her attention to details is superior as well! If Telma isn't cleaning your house, you better request her, she's in high demand. Thank you Telma and to your mom! See you guys in two weeks!!
