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 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.

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?

I needed someone to clean my house after I had my bathroom renovated a few days back. The house was too dusty. I have a 15month old baby and I want the house to be clean when he comes back from vacation. I searched for cleaning services near me that can do the job in Thumbtack. Im glad I found Cecilia and her team. They did an excellent job cleaning the house! I will definitely hire them again. Im already thinking of booking with them once a month for deep cleaning.

I haven’t always had good experiences with Thumbtack house cleaners. However, Zip Cleaners arrived on time, were well supplied and ready to work. I am very happy with their work. I will use them again.

Kamyahlee was incredibly responsive, answered all my questions and left my house smelling and looking beautiful. I have a first floor apartment that's almost as big as a house and she managed to clean all the floors, kitchen and bathroom. I am so pleased with her work. I will definitely hire her again.

I recently had my house cleaned by Julia and her wonderful team of ladies. I can honestly say they did an amazing job! My house is in the best shape that it’s been in years. When my 2 toddlers came home, they kept saying “Thank you for making our house look so beautiful!” I would highly recommend calling Julia to get your house/apt done. You absolutely won’t regret it. I plan to have her come on a regular basis and recommend her to all my family and friends. A+++++++++++++

The company sent 3 young men to clean my house. The guys were nice enough, but are better suited to cleaning office. The quality of the work was so poor that I had to ask them to stop. They guys use wipes to dust instead of microfiber clothes (leaving streaks). And they did not even dust very well. It was too much micromanaging. Out of fairness, I paid for the time they were in my house--however I am not left with doing all the cleaning myself. Until I read the response below, I would have said that Crystal (owner) handled the situation well. However, it must be noted that not once did she offer an apology and has called me negative for reporting I was unhappy with the job. So I will include pictures of the cleaned bathroom, dusted dresser and stove to prove my point. It isn't about pleasing people, it is about doing the job you are being paid for. Good business.

PRO: -Kamyahlee's work was AMAAAZING, unique, knowledgeable, takes initiative and driven! She is very organized, detailed and a great conversationalist I love her. -I explained my OCD ways of cleaning that I myself can't always keep up with because of my hectic schedule. -She listened and assured me that she "Got this" and delivered. ---She focused and cleaned details I normally don't find the time to clean and she did in 7hrs what I can't figure out how to do in years. -She cleaned the dust in all areas of my house that I cannot stand. -She organized my clutter in all areas I asked her to. -She mopped the floors. She moved things and swept behind them -My dresser was ugly, cluttered and dusty. She reorganized my dresser space and cleared it up and left it beautiful, presentable and clear of dust. -She dusted around my bedpost, my couches, my bookshelf, office areas. My window sills went from dirty and dingy to new and white again. -She organized my daughter's space and created more space by putting away the toys in the bins. -Mya YOU"RE A GODDESS! She did more than I expected. My house is clean for me and my family. I wish MYA was here to help more often lol. My Cleaning goals ultimately include: Eventually eliminating all my cluttered areas down to simplicity and creating even more space. Also to have more lemon smell in the house kitchen and bathroom. Thanks, Mya you're a lifesaver!

Overall, we had a great experience with this cleaning service. I needed help deep cleaning the new house we recently moved into and I’m very happy with the results. I would have rated 5 stars but the only reason I gave 4 is because one of the tasks that was important on my list didn’t get completed. Partly probably my fault for not pointing it out when the crew arrived and I also didn’t check before they left (I had only shared a list of tasks via text). Otherwise, the experience was great and they did a fantastic and thorough job! Would definitely recommend and will definitely use again in the future if I need any cleaning services!

I truly enjoyed interacting with Cleo (the business owner) and the cleaners that came to our house. However, there were a few hiccups along the way. Even though I provided as much detail as I could about our property beforehand, I was dismayed when I came to see that proper cleaning tools were not used to fully attend to our hardwood floors. I learned that a Swiffer was used to clean our hardwood floors when the company owner knew that I requested her services for a move-in where there was some debri and the home hadn't been cleaned in some time. I was so underwhelmed that the company owner had someone return the next day. That woman, Maria, did a much better job than what had been done previously. It is clear that she had different cleaning tools and I was left puzzled by how the lead cleaning lady (Sharice) that came the day before would have been find with C+ level work had I not said anything. I think that the company is pretty good overall, I would just recommend in the future that more questions are asked from prospective clients and that there is better synergy between the workers and the company owners so that the cleaners don't prematurely want to leave a customer site when the work that they have performed is subpar. All is well that ends well and I am grateful for how Maria came back the second day and how the company owner Cleo, is all about client satisfaction. I just implore them to enhance how they will get it right the first time around. After all, I have already been a repeat user of Bettermaid Service, as Cleo quickly attended to how I needed assistance with packing in such a short timeframe. Thank you Cleo for your great customer service, it is much appreciated!

I had scheduled the service in two different occasions and didn’t show to ether appointment. The first time Nikkie had said she had car problems and was not able to show. she waited until 5 minutes to the appointment to response to my messages. I texted and emailed her on the same day & she never responded, until the last minute. Okay. I understand, accidents happen. I Reschedule the appointment for today 5/14/18 at 11:00am. Again I reach out to Nikkie make sure she is coming to clean my mother’s house. She stated that she was running behind schedule and she will be there at 11:30am. It’s 12:54pm and she doesn’t respond or answer her phone. What a waste of time. I don’t recommend this service.
