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.

Evelyn and her team did an excellent job deep cleaning my house. They were very thorough and detailed, and left my house sparkling clean. Those hard to clean things like hard water on glass, oven, fridge, they handled it all in a few hours. They brought all the cleaners and tools. And my house didn’t smell overwhelming with highly fragranced cleaners when they left. Just pleasant and clean. They were very friendly and professional also. I would highly recommend Evelyn and team.

This house cleaning project was overwhelming. The house had been occupied by a smoker and it had nicotine stains on the walls. The completed project was beyond what we expected. They also cleaned up the floors areas and left everything very organized. I couldn't be happier with NY Green Cleaning. I highly recommend them.

Wonderful job! I got an estimate right away, and was able to have my whole house cleaned that week. It has been a while since the house had a cleaning, and they did a wonderful job. Very professional and I will be a regular customer going forward.

Wow, Evelyn and her worker did an absolutely amazing deep clean on my house. It’s only me and my two boys here and it was pretty dirty. They cleaned every nook and cranny. I mean everything. Even my coffee maker and microwave. Evelyn is a complete professional and also just a wonderful person. My house has never been cleaner. It is literally spotless. I will be using her company on a regular basis. I highly recommend her!

Thank you to Grace and Sons Cleaning! Grace was very responsive via phone/text and she and her sons were on time and polite and did a great job. Grace is a delightful person and cares about her work. She and her sons cleaned my house well in a few hours, even tidying up our front porch area. Grace went above and beyond. I had a shower that I really wanted cleaned but the drain is leaking. Grace understood and insisted on cleaning the shower anyway without sending water down the drain. It is so nice to have the whole house clean at the same time. Thank you so much Grace, Winston and Walter!

Evelyn responded very fast and worked around my schedule to set up the cleaning appointment. Got a deep cleaning done. Very thorough and professional job. Arrived on time with a total of 3 people to clean the house. I had a jacuzzi that needed some serious TLC and I had tried all kinds of cleaners to remove some stubborn stains without success. These guys cleaned it spick and span. Excellent work and highly recommend them.

My family and I moved out of a 2800 square foot house where we lived for 16 years. Erica and her crew came in and did an amazing job cleaning to be ready for the final walkthrough before closing on the house. Her team was courteous, friendly, and hard-working. Thank you Erica!

Fantastic and professional service. They came within a few hours for an evaluations and then punctually followed up with a deep clean session of my house that left it the best it’s ever been. I will have them back again as soon as I can, I’ve had other cleaners before but none as detailed and efficient as this team. Thankyou!
