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 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.

How do I choose the best house cleaning service?

When searching for the best house cleaning service near you, consider the depth of your cleaning needs, your budget and the size and condition of your home. Read reviews from verified customers of any cleaning service that you’re looking to hire. Also, check out the reviewers’ photos and do background checks on reviewers to ensure they’re not employed by established cleaning firms or maid agencies.

We needed the house cleaned for a party, and M&A made it happen. They were very flexible with coordination, literally on a few days notice, they made it happen. For the value I came home to a clean house they did some organizing as well and even wrapped our towels in a fancy way, felt like I was in a B&B. For a basic cleaning, they exceeded my expectations.

This was my second time using thumbtack to hire a house cleaner. The first company I hired I wasn’t impressed and was discouraged. I gave it a shot and hired her and I am VERY satisfied! She came in and asked questions making sure she hit all the areas I wanted deep cleaned. She left my walls, floors and house looking spotless and smelling pleasant! I like the job she has done sooo much that I have hired her permanently. I’m looking forward to the days she cleans my home!

Clean4u did a fantastic job cleaning my house. Everything was wiped down and organized, they cleaned the stairwell (one of the few people who remembered to do this) , did not take my trash with them ( hate it when they do without even asking) . The only thing that bothered me was that they came without a vacuum cleaner, and used my dyson that loses battery in 20 mins.

I honestly don't think my house has ever been this clean. Nothing was left untouched, unmoved or uncleaned. They worked tirelessly and always responded with a smile. I can't recommend these ladies highly enough.

I am seriously stunned by how wonderful my house looked today when I arrived home. The team that came cleaned EVERYTHING, organized EVERYTHING, and made it look like a real home again. I was totally amazed and will definitely be a repeat customer. My only critique was the cleaners that were used - I worked as a janitor for a while and my nose is sensitive to certain cleaners. I plan to work with them going forward to use some of the cleaning supplies I keep that work better for my sensitivities.

Annmarie did such an amazing job on a move out clean of my Mom’s apartment! It was cleaner after than the day she moved into it 5 years ago! As soon as Annmarie started cleaning it immediately smelled so much better too! She used natural cleaning products with a honeysuckle scent that I ran out and bought for my own house after because I loved it so much! She wasn’t just on time and ready to work she showed up early and was so kind and very professional! She would show my Mom and I after she cleaned each room and made sure we were happy with how everything looked. I wish I could have Annmarie clean for me in Arizona but since it’s a bit outside of her accepted work area, I will be sure to refer her to all of my family that still live in Dutchess County and any surrounding areas! Thank you again Annmarie!! :)

Annmarie and her husband did a beautiful job, on very short notice, cleaning my father-in-law’s house to prepare it for a repast for my mother-in-laws funeral. We are very appreciative to them and they definitely made a difficult time a bit easier. Thank you both! I highly recommend their services. Annmarie was prompt to respond to my inquiry and she was punctual as well.

Where do I begin with the praise for Olga!? She was BEYOND INCREDIBLE -- I am a single Mom who was way out of my league with house hold mess-- she came in, was kind and professional- and WORKED- like I have seen few people work- my apartment is actually cleaner than it was the day we moved in-- and it makes me feel not only relieved but safe about my children's health-- I will always be in Olga's debt and would hire her any time she is free! There are not a lot of people out there who are genuine and as kind as they are competent- Olga is the real deal!

So my house was gross... and I mean GROSS. Between fighting a mouse infestation (still ongoing) and taking care of a sick/dying cat... plus a roommate backing out leaving all her crap and my overall inability to not get overwhelmed by the mess of it all, I was totally ashamed of my apartment. I would have rather died than let someone step foot inside. My boyfriend saw how overwhelmed and distressed I was and asked me to find someone to clean/organize my apartment. I was really scared, I didn’t want anyone to see how bad my place was. I reached out to these ladies and they were extremely professional, hard working, and the price wasn’t ridiculous. It was A LOT to take on and these ladies spent hours making my place look like a home again. I am incredibly happy and grateful, and will be calling upon their services to help me again. Thank you so much, JVI!
