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.

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.

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.

How much does it cost to deep clean a house?

Deep cleaning a house goes beyond the surface level to clear out the dust, grime and gunk that’s collecting on the fan blades, hiding in the blinds, and built up inside the refrigerator drawers. Deep cleaning of a home or apartment costs more than regular house cleaning because it takes more time, effort, and cleaning products. You may choose to have a deep cleaning once or several times a year in addition to your standard cleaning services. You may have a one-time deep cleaning to prepare for company or to clean after a house party. Companies may charge an hourly rate or a price per square foot, or may offer you a flat rate after they have visited your home and estimated work time. The national average house cleaning price is $110-$150, with rates ranging higher for deep-cleaning services. Here are some examples of how a company may calculate their deep-cleaning prices:

  • 10 cents per square foot (compared with 5 cents per square foot for standard house cleaning).
  • $300 for a 3,000-square-foot home.
  • $25 per hour per worker for deep-cleaning services.

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?

What is included in a deep house cleaning vs. a basic house cleaning?

A basic house cleaning typically includes tasks like carpet cleaning, wiping countertops, taking out the trash, doing the laundry and washing dishes. A deep house cleaning is a much more involved process, where all aspects of the home are given full attention for a cleanout. In a deep house cleaning, the cleaners will wet-wipe everything from door frames to light switch plates, making sure to also clean walls, windows, air vents, ceiling fans, furniture and more.

How do I prepare for a house cleaner?

There are several things you can do in preparation for a house cleaning to improve the efficiency and quality of the job. If you’re unfamiliar with a cleaning service, hiding and locking away any obvious valuables lying around can offer great peace of mind.

Depending on the preference of the cleaner, you may need to lock up your pets before the cleaners arrive. Washing dishes and decluttering the house allows a house cleaner to do their job more effectively. And leaving special notes for the cleaners about certain areas in your home that need attention is also helpful.

Ask house cleaners near you about their tips to help you prepare for their services.

I hired Mary to clean my house, but the job was not good or even fair. They were in my house for 4 hours and when they left the house did not even smell freshly cleaned. My house was already clean from the start and so this was probably the easiest job they could have had. However, I had to go back and point out the fact that the rooms and places they said they cleaned were still dirty and to give you context my house was so clean that the instruction manuals were still in the appliances. Finally, when they said they were done, my floors looked so dirty and they told me they cleaned it and what was left could not come up. I took my finger and scratch the dirt right up and they did the same, but still they did not clean the floors and showed me a swifter that they used as a mop to clean the floor. However, they quickly asked to be paid. I really don't know what they were doing for 4 hours as they were a team of 3 and I could have cleaned the whole house alone in 3 hours, so this was totally disappointing. Finally, my sink was working before they came and by the time they were leaving my sink was not working and my dishwasher (new never used) was flooded with dirty water). I have not idea what they poured down the sink, to make it do this. I did not argue with them about it or the fact that the floors were dirty, I just let it go and know that I would never use their services again. I was hoping to get a long term maid, but I would not recommend this service to anyone. They probably have good reviews because they are going to houses that are filthy, but if you live clean and just want someone to come in an do light cleaning or clean your home regularly don't both to use this company, because you will be disappointed and they will not own the fact that they did not clean it and re-clean so you can actually see what you paid for or what they spend 4 hours doing. As you can see from her comments, she knows the work she did was not good and therefore discusses everything other than the fact that she spent 3 hours in my house and left my floors dirty and me with the responsibility to now pay a plumber for something that worked before she came.

Mary's house cleaning did an excellent job cleaning my home. They were very thorough. However several of my expensive blinds were damaged and the language barrier created some communication issues. However I would hire them again.

They did an excellent job but I mainly wanted my living room clean it was cluttered with junk and they refused to do it. And they spoke Portuguese. Make sure you get someone who understands your language completely and won’t be afraid to clean certain parts of the house. Other than that they clean good. These pictures are of the section I wanted them to clean but didn’t because they didn’t want to

Maca's house cleaning is wonderful. They make my life a lot easier. Very thorough and attention to detail. They leave my home better than I imagined. Anything I ask her to take care of, she does so willingly. Have been using her for months and will continue to do so. Highly recommended!

Honestly this should have been 2.5 stars. Flavia and her girls were supposed to be at my parents home at 7am. My sister in Dallas found her, called her and discussed the plan with her and told me the details. She was to arrive at 7am, clean the entire house(including basement) and agreed that any extra wouldn't go beyond $55. At 7am, no sign. 7:30 no signs, I ended up having to get her number from my sister to call her and see what was going on. She eventually told me that she lost my sister's number and couldn't contact her. Not sure why she didnt save her number during their conversation but I digress. They finally got to the house at 8:35. Immediately came in and started delegating duties to the girls. Didnt even bother to ask me what was it that needed to be done so we'f all be on the same page, as they were working I took Flavia to the basement to show her the guest bed and how it needed to be tidied up. She said folding clothes would be extra money because they don't do that apparently. Ok fine never mind the clothes, pack them up neatly. That was done, I will say the basement was cleaned up quite well BUT she claimed my sister didnt mention basement and that would be an extra $100. Impossible for my sister not to have mentioned one of the main places we wanted cleaned for our parents. She kept mentioning profile which made no sense since my sister didnt find her thru thumbtack she found her thru google and called her. No profile needed. After about 1.5 hours she seemed to start rushing, almost forgot the half bathroom in the kitchen despite the fact that my sister and then myself mentioned 3 bathrooms being in the house, thankfully I checked it to see it hadn't been done and they claimed to not remember another bathroom. That job was rushed. The bathroom upstairs was also sorta rushed and she claimed the faint stains couldn't remember because it was "old". Before my back problems, I used to clean that bathroom and got it extremely white. That tub is about 5 years old. Attached below is a pic of the bottom of the fridge, The fridge was cleaned but the bottom portion was NOT. I ended up having to scrub it down myself before my parents got back from vacation. What is the point of extra $100 when Im the one cleaning behind them? They did the windows but didnt clean the front door, I did that myself the cabinets weren't touched nor arranged, neither was the pantry. She also brought having other clients like that was my concern, I hired you for a time and job, you came late and now want to rush because you have other clients? Disappointing. Left some sticky wax on the hardwood floors upstairs and when i mentioned the stickiness, told me she will go over it with fabulous but never got around to it before rushing off (sadly i was in-between school work during everything) The 2.5 stars is for the fact that the jobs that were done, were done pretty well(except for the fridge) but there were things that weren't touched nor arranged plus the whole addition amount regarding a basement she was told about before accepting the job. I wanted to recommend her to my neighbors but Im not sure if I will.
