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. 

What should I ask a house cleaner or maid before hiring them?

There are many questions to ask a cleaning service before you hire them to make sure they’re the right fit. These questions might include:

  • How much do you charge?
  • How do you set your prices -- per hour or per square foot? Or, do you charge a flat rate?
  • What is your past work experience? Can I see a list of references?
  • Are you accustomed to working with different home or apartment types and sizes?
  • Can you work with children or pets in the house?
  • What types of cleaning products do you use?
  • Do you bring your own cleaning supplies and products?
  • How often can you clean my home?
  • Is there anything you recommend I do (or don't do) to my home before you arrive?

How often should you have your house cleaned?

The frequency you should have your house cleaned depends on several factors, and the best professional house cleaner can give you a rough estimate of costs so you can budget how often you need someone to clean your home. 

Daily house cleaning may be necessary if you have a home with a large number of bedrooms with young children and kids, although other homeowners may benefit from weekly house cleaning. A weekly cleaner can clean the bathroom, kitchen, do laundry, vacuum and mop. An occasional deep house cleaning is most beneficial for people who have recently renovated a home or are looking to do a spring clean.

They did a phenomenal job! Our house hasn't smelled and looked as clean in a long time by our previous cleaners. We look forward to making them our permanent house cleaners.

I couldn’t be happier with the job done by H & M House Cleaning. Michele and her assistant did an excellent job cleaning every aspect of my pandemic neglected house. I was unable to keep up with the heavy cleaning and they took care to get everything clean - even in the hidden corners. They were friendly and professional. Definitely going to book for regular cleaning!

The woman who cleaned my house had a warm, positive attitude and was an extremely hard worker. The house was spotless when she was finished, and I know that some parts were more of a deep-cleaning than the regular cleaning she had signed on to do--great value for what I actually paid!

They paid special attention to each room and did a deep cleaning from top to bottom. I am so surprised that they took so much pride in their work and my house looks fantastic. Was going to use The service once to get my house on the market, I was so impressed I am signing up for regular cleaning. Lizette and Danielle were very personable and careful as well as professional. I requested them for future cleanings.

Great attention to detail - the only thing they missed was cleaning behind a bassinet. The staff was friendly but I did hear a few negative comments about the cleanliness of the house in Spanish.

This was my first time ever hiring a cleaning service...so I wasnt sure what to expect. But I was pleased with the professionalism of Carlos and his staff who came to clean my house. It looks good and smell good. I wish i could afford them biwkly...but Im definitely putting them in my monthly budget. These people that live in my house are lazy and do half azz work...so for MY PEACE OF MIND...I'll just hire KN cleaning to help me out once a month.

Wonderful cleaning experience. Shine’s Cleaning was extremely thorough and paid strict attention to detail. At one point, Cleide was standing on top of a chair cleaning the top of our entertainment center. Couches were pulled out and the areas behind were cleaned. She missed NOTHING. If you’re looking for someone who is prompt, courteous and efficient this is the service for you! I have brought them on as a regular service. Thank you Cleide! My house looks and smells better than ever!!!

Where do I start?! I called Sandra late Wednesday, told her my situation and she was able to fit me in that Friday! She came and was very professional, pleasant and friendly and she had all tools and products ready to go (vacuum too!). The house looks and smells wonderful! Since I moved into this house in April, I hired 4 other Cleaners. Sandra is hands down THE BEST. I’ve finally found a person I can set up repeat cleanings with. The price was very nice too! I feel like she cleaned my home like it was hers. I am so appreciative!

We had been trying to find a cleaning service for our house and no one was getting back to us. TRose and Netika got in touch right away and have been super professional and have done an amazing job so far.

3 dogs + 2 kids = dust and dirt. Neither of which were there after Nico was done. Nico was fantastic, my house smells and looks amazing. I almost got misty eyes when I opened my refrigerator and saw the shelves were cleaned and organized. Would highly recommend and will use again for sure. Thank you!

Absolutely Amazing! I have a certain level of clean that I truly appreciate, and she somehow managed to exceed it! I don't even know where to start with the amount of compliments I have. She was beyond courteous, and kept me informed throughout the day as to when she would be arriving. When she arrived, she was extremely professional, I felt comfortable right away, and she explained the details of the job and asked me if I had any questions or concerns (I confirmed the price of the job, and other than that I had none). She got straight to work, and I left her to it. She came and got me when she was done, so I could inspect her work, and this is where I will tell you how blown away I was by the level of clean she provided! Everything had been cleaned, everything! She moved every 'knick-knack' I own and dusted it, she wiped down the ceiling fan and all of the vents, she got into all the little nooks and got rid of all of my dust! She moved EVERYTHING and made sure no surface was left unclean. I have 2 large dogs, they shed a good amount, and I couldn't find any dog hair left behind. My house smelled fresh and I felt immediate relief, because I had found a cleaner who I felt had cleaned so well, that I could now look forward to having company (even my mother would approve, she has some serious OCD tendencies). If you have been searching for a cleaner, and are wavering on who to go with, I can tell you right now that you will not be disappointed! (Also, make sure all the reviews you're reading are 'verified reviews', I found that out the hard way).

Steer clear of this terrible company. They are extremely nasty and rude not to mention not good at their job. I have never had such a bad experience with people coming in my home and I would never ever recommend them to anyone I know. The first time they came, they were great. Friendly and thorough - really good. The next time they came things went down hill quickly. They didn't do any of the things we had spent the first time talking about like use the products we talked about, etc. They even did strange things like carry around the tub of dish soap to use in parts of the house. It wasn't thorough and I had to run the vacuum over the den run right after they left and clean the bathroom floor and molding myself because it wasn't mopped or wiped. Instead of using the rags, mops, etc. that I provided they ran through 3 entire tubs of Clorox wipes which I asked them not to use because they're in limited supply right now and really for a quick daily wipe. After they cleaned the kitchen, before leaving, they heated up their lunch in the microwave and ate it which I thought was a little strange but not a huge deal. The next time was even worse. They spent about 15 minutes total upstairs (3 bedrooms ,2 bathrooms, and an office upstairs) and barely anything was clean. When I went up later there was dust all over the floor and molding in one room, the trash cans were still full, the bathroom floors were clearly not cleaned. When they came downstairs things got much worse - I spent my time out of their way taking care of my baby son upstairs but heard them begin to speak horribly about me in Portuguese. Going on and on about how disgusting the room was, how I was nasty, even worse things. I think they didn't know I could hear them from up there and they probably assumed I don't speak Portuguese but I actually do and could understand the horrible things they were saying about me for no reason in my own home. I had been nothing but nice to them - I hadn't complained or even let them know that I didn't love some things they had done. I even had baked them pumpkin breads to give them that day but this clearly changed my mind. They were saying such hurtful things that I told them I would take my son for a walk outside and be back as soon as they needed me so I could stay out of their way for their ease. When I returned home they were gone. Several things still messy. Didn't hear from them for hours until that night the company texted me to pay. Very very poor customer service, honestly mean women, and not even thorough or good at cleaning. Never again.
