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.

Absolutely loved Monica’s work! Coming home to a very clean home after a long day at work was all I wanted. She cleaned every corner, changed sheets, and left the house spotless and smelling great. Definitely recommend and look forward to my now biweekly cleanings! The price is reasonable and worth it!

Armando & his team did a terrific job cleaning our house yesterday👍!!! They were prompt, communicative, responsive and very thorough in their cleaning. It was a big project, because we had some of our floors refinished the day before & the floor refinishers did not adequately tarp off the rest of the house to protect it from the voluminous plumes of dust they created. As a result, all of the furniture, rugs & everything else in the living room and dining room were covered in a thick layer of wood dust. Armando & his team took everything in stride and did a wonderful job!! We were so pleased with all of their hard work that we ended up paying them extra for a job well done!! We will definitely use them again. Thank you Armando & your great cleaning team for all of your help!! 🙂

Laura did an ok job of cleaning and I was ok with the overall experience. My wife came in as Laura was leaving and pointed out several concerns as she inspected the job. We weren't able to do a final walk through with Laura because by the time my wife asked and I realized we hadn't, she was gone. My wife asked why she wouldn't have done a walk through to make sure we were ok, but unfortunately, I didn't have an answer to that. I also noticed that the areas I mentioned needed some extra vacuuming and a small space between my bathroom sink and wall that hadn't been vacuumed at all weren't addressed either. The thing that was the biggest issue was the Windows. I expected a more thorough cleaning of not just the actual glass, but the frame and housing as well. The most major issue was that she couldn't really handle the weight of the Windows and from time to time I'd hear a loud bang, and when I would check on her, it would be a window that fell partially out of its groove in the frame. There was no breakage and she wasn't hurt, which were my main concerns, but when one of the Windows actually came completely off the frame, it made me feel like I should be helping her, which is something I didn't intend to do as I don't typically assist anyone I hire to do work for me; if I had the time, or was able to do the job, then I'd give it a go myself. given the circumstance I had to also consider how to get my window back up, since she admitted she wouldn't be able to do it herself. I figured I'd call my building super so I can get my window back up, but until then I pray there is no more bad weather!
