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.

Heather cleaned my house for the first time today. She was on time, had her own supplies, and did a really great job! I have two large dogs that keep my house messy and she managed to clean the house spotless! Looking forward to Heather coming again next week.

Wow. These guys are great. Had them do a deep cleaning today and was more than satisfied. All the furniture was moved and the house was scrubbed clean. They were neat and pleasant. Brought their own supplies and materials. My house has never been cleaner. They cleaned places in my home I didn't know were there. Looking forward to their on going service. Just awesome.

Working with April and her crew was a breeze, they came and cleaned my house from top to bottom for a very reasonable price. April was very responsive to messages, and has an eye for detail. Would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for house cleaning services.

Cheryl cleaned my house right before the holiday and at the last minute. She cleaned the kitchen, bathroom and dining room, including the floors. Everything was done well and it was wonderful to come home to a spotless fresh smelling house. Cheryl is friendly, a great communicator and arrived at the right time. I hope to have Cheryl clean regularly!

I asked the cleaning crew to do a deep clean of the entire house I was very happy with the results! Unfortunately the cleaners did not have the tool needed to clean the high spots like my ceiling fan and over the doors and windows. We’ll have to do that next time!

SO! If anyone needs a really good house cleaner, no matter the size of the job, I recommend Jeff's House Cleaning Service. He is a great young man. I needed someone to clean up the cesspool that was left behind in our guest room by out last house guest and he came and did the most amazing job. He wiped the walls down with vinegar water, he bleached the room head to toe, he left the entire bathroom shining brighter than I have ever seen it. I was so impressed. A++++

Look, I had a bit of an issue at first with this company but to their credit they made it right. I think it's ok for people to make mistakes and that's what happened here but Buffalo Cleaning Crew owned it and in the end the quality was excellent. They got my house ready for open house and showings and it looked great. We received offers right away, the house was on the market for less than a week and the cleaning job these guys did was a large part of it. I will say, be very clear what your expectations are and what the job is.

Not exactly a deep cleaning. We discussed what was expected, sad to return back to the house to find a lot of uncleaned areas. Had to finish up the job ourselves to prepare for an Open House that weekend. Walls didn't look wiped down, drawers were emptied but not cleaned out, toothpaste still on the wall in the bathroom, mirrors never wiped down, outside of fridge not scrubbed, kitchen walls didn't look touched, basement stairway wall not cleaned like I specifically pointed out. Just to name a few things.

Andy and Jason did a great job cleaning my entire house after we had some remodeling done. I have a 2 story home with 7 rooms and 2 full baths. His quoted price was more than fair and he didn't charge extra when he went over his allotted time by 1 hour. Their cleaning entailed dusting, vacuuming, cleaning floors, carpets and furniture, cleaning bathrooms, windows. Thank you Handy Andy for a job well done!
