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.

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.

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.

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.

Our apartment was in such a awful state that we don’t know how to clean it up before moving out. Thanks to Cynthia, who did an amazing job and put our place back to sparking clean again. We loved her service so much that we even consider to make her as our regular cleansing maid. Thanks so much for your amazing work.

UPDATE: I just got off of the phone with Moe, who after I booked a second cleaning, was very cordial and told me that there was one thing he'd like to talk to me about; my review. He calmly explained that we didn't pay for a "second bedroom" so that is why he didn't clean the office. Okay fine! My mistake. Then he proceeded to tell me that both my fiancee and I were wrong, and that he did clean the counters, and that I should not have left a review stating anything negative. This completely goes against the purpose of a review. He started to tell them that I needed to take it down and chance it because this business is his livelihood and he has a 7 year old at home that he needs to take care of. I told him how unfair that was because the only reason for telling me that was to make me feel guilty. I let him know exactly that. I then told him that had he offered to come take care of anything he may have missed and then I could change the review, I would have been on board, and happily fixed the review. When I told him that, he proceeded to get angrier and angrier and started SCREAMING at me, telling me that he never wants to come back to clean my house again, and that he already spoke to his lawyer and he was planning to sue me for libel and defamation. What blows my mind about this is that I honestly could not have been nicer in my first review, and I fully intended to update it after his second cleaning and write about any improvements he would have made. Now I have no choice but to write this bad review and let others know about what happens with Maid 2 Service when you write something they don't like. I gave him a 5 star review, now I've edited it to be 1 star. Writing a review is my first amendment right, and I cannot be sued for libel or defamation because I did not say anything that was not factually correct. My only mistake was a misunderstanding that my office would not be counted as a bedroom, and I would have happily updated my review to reflect that, before I was screamed at and threatened. -------------------------- Moe was great. He called to tell me that he would be late because the previous house took longer than expected and he wanted to get it as clean as possible. I would much rather a cleaning service that is late because they're working hard than on time because they rush. I thought this was great. They were very sweet with my dog and worked very hard. They cleaned the top of the refrigerator, behind our small appliances, and inside of the microwave. I think Moe got so focused on cleaning all of the details that he forgot to wipe down the counters. Not a big deal, easy enough for me to do. I think it was just one of those silly things that are so obvious they can end up getting skipped. My fiancee and I were in the office while they were cleaning, and both of us kind of expected them to let us know when they were ready to clean that room, but they just skipped over it instead. This is probably our fault for not saying anything, because I'm sure if I would have they would have cleaned it. Prior to our appointment, we asked if they change linens. When they were ready to go, I realized that I hadn't given them sheets. I asked if they could still do it, and gave them sheets and they changed it right away. There were a few spots that they forgot to dust but I'm sure they'll get it next time. Overall, they were extremely professional, detailed, and thorough. I am looking forward to having them back next month. They did an awesome job and I would recommend them to anyone!!
