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.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a house cleaner when social distancing?

If you hire a house cleaner to clean the inside of your home, do not make physical contact. Stay at least 6 feet apart at all times, sanitize any surfaces after cleaning and wash your hands thoroughly. Exchange all payments digitally instead of with cash. When contacting a house cleaner, put a plan in place to ensure everyone's safety.

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.

Should I hire a move-out cleaning service or do it myself?

You may benefit from hiring a professional move-out cleaning service, depending on your budget, time frame and whether you will be getting a deposit back. Hiring a cleaning service takes the stress out of your move. But if you’ve had your house regularly deep-cleaned, or if your landlord will charge you for cleaning anyway, you can save costs by DIY-ing it.

How long does it take to clean a house professionally?

Generally, getting your house cleaned professionally can take several hours. The time it takes for house cleaners to complete their job depends on the size of your home, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms you have, the type of service you require and the condition of your house. It also might depend on how many employees are cleaning and the supplies they are using. If you get recurring cleaning services, the first visit might take a bit longer than the subsequent visits. 

When choosing the best house cleaner for you, ask for an estimate about how long their services will take.

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.

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.

Francyele is AMAZING. My review wouldn’t do her work justice. I live in a large home and only wanted a few core rooms cleaned. She was on time, brought her own products and went to town on every crevice and piece of dust. She went above and beyond and cleaned the entire house. My kitchen was suffering from grease build up and she really worked her magic to get it off. I’m a super busy mother of two and I plan on having her come regularly to keep the house in check. Thank you Francyele from bringing back my sanity.

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

These ladies are extraordinary! My house has never been cleaner and it also smells so nice. They actually move items and furniture in order to clean under the objects and not just around them. This was my first service and I already feel as though I’ve made some new friends. They really care about doing a good job. I will never use anyone else. So very glad I found them on Thumbtack.

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.

E&S did an amazing job. I called them to help me with prepping for a real estate photographer’s photo shoot. My house is full of clutter and definitely needed some tending to. The photographer arrived an hour earlier than expected, however E&S stepped up as if they were family and helped with the humbling experience of the deep clean and the photo shoot was a hit. Included are just a few photos. I wish I snapped the “before” but you can see the magic that was done. Thank you Rosa for leading the project like the Pro that you are!

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.
