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.

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 are the different types of house cleaning services I can get?

There are several services offered by professional house cleaning companies, each suited for a different purpose. These services include:

  • Standard cleaning, which is a basic cleaning typically done on a weekly or monthly basis;
  • Deep cleaning, which is a detailed cleaning with more intensive work than a standard clean;
  • Move-in and move-out cleaning, which is a detailed service preparing a home for residents moving in or out;
  • Green house cleaning, which is a service that uses eco-friendly cleaning supplies and products. 

Aside from the type of cleaning services available, homeowners may also choose daily, weekly, monthly or one-time services.

How much should you tip maids or cleaning services?

Tipping between 15 and 20 percent is considered an appropriate tip for maids and house cleaners — just as it would with a barber, food delivery driver or taxi operator. During the holidays, you might want to consider tipping a bit more. 

It’s important to note that some housekeeping and maid services might include a tip within the service fee, which should be explained to you in the service contract. Talk to house cleaners in your area to find out what's included in their fees.

I gave them 5 stars due to their excellent work. They came on time and worked as a team throughout the time cleaning our house. They were very cordial so it turned into a pleasant experience. The house “sparkled” after they cleaned our house. Great value for the money!

I thought I had unrealistic cleaning service expectations because I’ve never found a cleaner that I thought did a good job. That all changed with Hilda. We needed to clean our rental house and we didn’t have any time to do it ourselves. I had another cleaning service scheduled, but they did not show up, call, or anything! We contacted Hilda and she was super responsive and able to fit us in with very little notice. I plan to schedule regular visits with her in our new house. The whole house sparkled and smelled so nice when she was done. Very thorough, very responsive, and very professional!!

Wanted to let you know how pleased we were with cleaning services that were done at my mom's house. They went above and beyond when servicing her house. In which we really do appreciate it. Overall we appreciate the responsiveness and professionalism, and outstanding service that was provided.

I recently moved to Rio Rancho and was looking for a local company to complete monthly house cleaning. I used Sally Cleaning Services for the past two months. Both times, she did a thorough job. She is professional and immediately responded to all my requests. I'm satisfied with her work and will continue to use her for my monthly home cleaning.

We needed someone to do a one-time deep cleaning to help my allergies. 4 women arrived at our house early, and worked 6 hours to clean our 3750sf house from top to bottom-tall ceilings, recessed lights, ceiling fans, lighting, doors, blinds, bathrooms, kitchen (stove, oven cabinets) baseboards, vacuuming, mopping(would have done windows, but we have those done separately). We have lots of knick-knacks on lots of shelving, and they cleaned everything with the utmost of care. Everything was put back in its proper place, and the house was spotless! They didn't miss a thing. And, yes, it really helped my allergies! The ladies were very friendly, professional and detailed oriented. We plan on having them come monthly to keep things dust-free. I highly recommend this company! Excellent service!

E.A.S cleaned my house so well. I now know the person I had before wasn’t really cleaning. Everything is wiped down now it’s sparkling!!! They worked in a timely manner they were on time. And I called very last minute and she made time for me. You won’t be disappointed

2 hours is not enough time to really clean a house over 1900 square ft. Cleaning most of my blinds was done by beating them not cleaning them! My floor was wet mopped and was going to left until I mentioned that it should be dry mopped right after wet mopping! Master shower, don’t think anyone attempted to clean it, I noticed the shower controls hadn’t been touched but she said that she did until she walked in the shower! The drain hadn’t been touched as well. The lady in the kitchen (lead) she did a great job and actually cleaned blinds with her hands! If I’m paying that amount of money, everything should be cleaned, I shouldn’t find anything that wasn’t cleaned and mire time should be allowed to clean a home right!

Rachel was an hour late getting here (she did text and let me know about 10 minutes before her scheduled time). She did a great job on the kitchen, but rest of the house seemed to be a lick and a promise. Better cleaning at a better price out there.

Wow! I should have taken a pic of what came out of my house. I probably could have knit a blanket from the dog hair, not to mention filled up an entire trash can (a really big one). TWO PEOPLE and FIVE HOURS of non-stop cleaning without a lunch break is what it took to clean my home. Excellent work, great value. Will call again!

Day of scheduled cleaning Monday, says she’s sick! Okay, I understand being sick and rescheduled the next week Tuesday and now I get a call from another woman that knows E.A.S. and said that she was suppose to clean my house but she can’t do it today and wants to reschedule! I won’t use this company if I can’t depend on them to work on the day scheduled a week in advance!

Alfred was very accommodating during our time crunch from packing, leaving town, etc. We weren't moving out of the house completely, but he worked with us to get everything done despite having to work around some furniture. He did a great job cleaning surfaces, etc. and successfully got out a nasty carpet stain that we thought would be there forever. He was also just an all-around nice guy. Would be happy to use his services again in the future.
