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.

My initial deep clean experience with house pure has been great! I love how responsive and quick the process of setting up house cleaning was with Joy. She’s professional and did exactly what was expected. My house was sparkling clean after she left for the day, and I love the attention to detail. I look forward to having her continue to help reduce my stress and keep my home looking beautiful!

Rosa Acosta is AMAZING! They did a fantastic job cleaning my house yesterday. I got a text to let me know she was on her way which was very helpful. They took their time cleaning, they weren't rushing through to get it done, like some other cleaning services. My house is so clean and smell so nice. I'm very grateful! It was really a great experience and I'm so happy to have found her!

Arrived almost an hour late & did not give a heads up about when they would be arriving. Didn’t bring any cleaning supplies, then cleaned trims & when asked to clean other items in the house, they said “well we weren’t told that’s what we had to clean.” Smells clean, but paid $300 for a deep clean. Good enough job.

Mark cleaned our house (which by the way, was incredibly dirty/dusty) and did a very good job. I knew someone had been in our house the minute I walked in the door because everything was sparkling. I pointed out a few things that I noticed were not as clean as I would have liked, and Mark noted them positively. Looking forward to our next cleaning with Mark and his crew. Thank you.

I’m just blown away at the deep clean job the three women on the team did at my house yesterday. My house is spotless, and ready to sell! Everyone on the team was professional and friendly. They didn’t miss the smallest detail....they even cleaned my fake plants! Thank you, thank you, ladies! I so highly recommend hiring this team. You won’t be disappointed!

Darrick did an incredible job, my house hadn’t been cleaned in a while and now everything looks brand new! He and his daughter take a lot of pride in their work and it shows. Recommend to anyone looking for an initial deep clean.

I would have given 10 stars if I could. Joy is absolutely wonderful! This is the 4th house cleaner I have tried, and my search is over. Do not hesitate to book House Pure - the attention to detail and thoroughness of Joy and her team is unparalleled.

The experience with Natasha was fantastic from the very beginning. She responded quickly to my project with a clear and direct quote. She came on time and did a very thorough job cleaning my home - the whole house sparkles! She brought her own cleaning supplies. She is very polite and thorough. She did such a fantastic job on the house, we will be talking to her about coming monthly.

Was very easy to get a hold of and efficient in my move out clean. House was clean enough for the new owners to be pleased with the condition of the home. I was impressed with how clean things like the insides of my cabinets were. However, there were some common things that were missed, like under the toilet seats.
