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.

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.

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.

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.

Should I hire a move-out cleaning service or do it myself?

You may benefit from hiring a professional move-out cleaning service, depending on your budget, time frame and whether you will be getting a deposit back. Hiring a cleaning service takes the stress out of your move. But if you’ve had your house regularly deep-cleaned, or if your landlord will charge you for cleaning anyway, you can save costs by DIY-ing it.

How long does it take to clean a house professionally?

Generally, getting your house cleaned professionally can take several hours. The time it takes for house cleaners to complete their job depends on the size of your home, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms you have, the type of service you require and the condition of your house. It also might depend on how many employees are cleaning and the supplies they are using. If you get recurring cleaning services, the first visit might take a bit longer than the subsequent visits. 

When choosing the best house cleaner for you, ask for an estimate about how long their services will take.

How much is a house cleaning?

The national average cost for house cleaning ranges between $25 and $50 per hour, per cleaner. However, the cost of house cleaning services near you might be different.

House cleaning prices vary based on how many square feet your home is, how dirty your house gets and how often the cleaning service comes. And, prices can be lower in areas with a lower cost of living, higher in big cities or affluent regions.

Some companies charge a set amount — such as 5 cents — per square foot, with a minimum amount, such as $100. You may save money by increasing the frequency of your house cleaning visits. Often a company will charge you less per cleaning when you schedule more cleanings per month. The cost advantage rewards your loyalty, and also reflects the fact that more frequent cleanings make it easier to maintain a high level of cleanliness in your home. A housecleaning service may charge more for the first visit or for one-time services than for recurring cleanings.

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.

DPE did an amazing job cleaning our lake house, which hadn’t been deep cleaned it quite a while. The deep clean they did was exceptional - the walls, base boards, and everything in between were cleaned so thoroughly, it looked like a new home. I would recommend them to anyone and hire them again in a heart beat! They were also very responsive, on time, and very easy to work with.

AChristina Cleaning did an immaculate job cleaning our house. No surface was left untouched. They did everything I had hoped for plus much more in a very timely manner. I have already contacted them to set up another appointment. I have had other cleaning services come and their work was not even close to the quality of AChristina! Would highly recommend to anyone!

Absolutely incredible work! We were beyond impressed by the services provided by MC Clean Services. They went above and beyond our expectations. I don’t think our house has ever been this clean. I am truly blown away by how organized and clean every room is and the special touches they included. I have already referred a couple of my friends so it goes without saying I would highly recommend MC Clean Services. I cannot wait until they return!!

My house is absolutely spotless! I was at work while the girls came to clean but my husband sent me pictures after they finished and they exceeded our expectations!! Fabiano came the day before to give us our quote and was very accommodating to our timeframe and super professional. 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for a cleaning service for their home

I bought a disgusting house from a seller that needed a bunch of work done. After doing all the walls, the general cleaning needed to be completed. I hired this company to come in and scrub down as much as they could. They did a great job! They stuck to their price, and it took them as long as they thought it would take. I will definitely hire them again!

I don’t normally write negative reviews, but I would hate for someone to be left in the position that Nicole’s unprofessionalism left me in. She canceled on me many occasions with no notice for a variety of reasons, all durning the summer- I’m left to assume the actual reason is that airbnbs are easier money, she also left town for 2 weeks without giving me enough notice to book someone else. I was ok with all that, but recently she confirmed a booking with me with and did not show. I am due to give birth in a few weekend and had visitors coming the next day so I had to clean the whole house alone in one day which was physically difficult for me, because Nicole did not honor her commit or have the decency to reach out so I could make other arrangements. She did not respond to me either. She also told me that she doesn’t usually book people in Saratoga because we “are so cheap”. I paid her $220 to do a basic cleaning, of 3 bedrooms and 3 and a half baths. By basic I mean just the floors, dusting counter tops. I always made sure the floors and counters where clear for her and let her use my vacuum ect. She did not do windows, base boards or window sills. In fact she once charged me $100 dollars to dust my floor boards. She was never there for more than 2 hours, I don’t know many professions that make $100 an hour and consider it cheap.
