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.

They were on time friendly and very thorough! My house smelled amazing. They really went above and beyond on my stove and oven! Which can be so hard to get clean. They will definitely be my first call when I need it again.

I don’t like writing a bad review but I’m really disappointed with the cleaner sent to clean my parents home. I have elderly parents and hired this company to clean their home. I had a great experience dealing with customer service but the cleaner sent was very unprofessional. She didn’t maintain 6ft distance even when I told her I had newborn twins then took off her mask to talk to me. I went over the areas to be cleaned as explained to me by customer service, however the cleaner started arguing with me because she said this job will take longer than she expected. In the end she refused to clean and left my house. I’m left confused as to why she was upset if the job took long, when it wasn’t a flat rate but an hourly rate. I will not say do not use this company but rather do not use the cleaner named Alice.

She was on time, and when I needed to change the date& time she was flexible. I needed a extra sparkle clean on my hour for the open house. *Disclaimer* I forgot to tell her what time I needed her done by. When I walked in the hour I

Unbelievably good. Kim and Akbar came immediately to provide us a quote with which we were very pleased and accepted. We arranged for a one time service on a house on which we just closed but was left in deplorable condition. The four member team came to the house on schedule and worked unbelievably hard to get the house to move in condition. The difference was amazing. Every member of the team went above and beyond our expectations. Because of a number of "hard-to-see" conditions it took the team much longer to do the job. But Kim stuck to her original quote despite our offer to increase the payment for the job. We have now hired Kim to do bi-weekly routine clean of the house. We can not begin to express how pleased we are with K&A Maintenance. As an extra bonus, one of the team members recommended a plumber to us when we needed an emergency repair to a galvanized pipe in the 112 year old house. We are using him for these repairs and have been very pleased with his professionalism as well.

Hire them! This mother and daughter duo did an excellent job deep cleaning my house. If you're looking for quality service, hire them. Although this was not done quickly, I was happy as I value quality over speed. They were very meticulous and really did a complete thorough job! I will recommend to friends....'obrigado!'

I had a rental property that was absolutely destroyed it looked like they lived there for 15 years and never cleaned once. They were only there 2 years. The team was there with 3 people initially, then 2 more came for back up. The price did not change. They cleaned everything, walls, all floor molding, windows, mopped floors, cleaned every cabinet and all shelves, all appliances, vacuumed whole house, all bathrooms., window sills, etc. What they did in two hours would have taken me two days. They did an extraordinary job, so much so, I gave them a 50% tip. They were right on time too. So impressed, I would recommend to anyone. They were the cheapest price around. I was worried about quality,due to price. However, for once you DONT get what you pay for. Very impressed.

I never write reviews, but this company really disappointed. They were scheduled to come at noon. Because I work from home, I canceled a few appointments to be available for them as this would be their first time cleaning our home. They finally showed up at 2:30, with the owner explaining that she had given the cleaners the wrong address. I explained to the owner that I was now on calls and could not let them in because of the disruption. She offered to give me a discount , but again I said that I could not have anyone in the house because of my work. Later in the day, I felt bad that the cleaning ladies were being penalized by someone else's incompetence, so I reached out and rescheduled for Saturday. The owner was bugging me about payment before the job had barely begun and even after I sent the money one of the cleaners was asking for payment. When I asked about the discount that was offered initially, I was told that that was no longer on the table. The ladies did an ok job, but the operation of this company, in my experience, leaves a lot to be desired.

I reached out to Sara on 7/18 and followed up with a call a couple days later. I provided her with all the rooms which needed to be cleaned but she felt it best to see my home to provide an estimate. I did agree and provided my address and asked if it was ok to get there around 8:30pm. I had worked a full day and made it home and relunctantly said yes. I texted her upon arriving at my home. She did not arrive until 9pm on monday evening to give me an estimate for cleaning my home? I thought that was a bit unprofessional. She arrived with another young lady and So i showed her around quickly. After which she mentions to her colleague the house is small in spanish and i have not heard from her since. No follow up, no sorry i can't help you. She completely waisted my time.
