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.

I had to have someone to really clean my house ! a number things were not done at all. I wanted my wood blinds dusted , 6 windows. barely dusted ! the kitchen and bathroom were so sticky , I had to remop them. This was supposed to be a deep clean, not even close. and they broke the wand that opened and closed the slats !! my oven was supposed to be cleaned. she was here for 3hrs . I paid $280.00 dollars for three hours !! The !! lady who came to clean , couldn't believe how many area were not touched !! I used to clean houses. I never did work like this .

I hired Zanette’s Cleaning Services to clean the old house we’d just bought to move into. Zanette contacted me to say they’d be late and then they arrived at the new time. Zanette and Brenda did a very good job cleaning the bathroom and kitchen. They were both very friendly. I was surprised that they asked me if there was anything else I wanted done. I said no, but I am disappointed that more wasn’t done since the whole house was dusty and dirty. Overall it was a good experience and I may hire them again for my move out cleaning.

Elaine and her partner Jane did a great job cleaning my new home. I just bought this house and wanted to clean every corner before moving in, and that was exactly what they did. The hardwood floor and windows are now dust free. And although they are not professional carpet cleaners, they did a great job cleaning my carpet with a steam cleaner. The stains on the carpet were almost all gone. I am so glad that I hired them.

Dawn and team were able to come last minute and perform a move-out clean. The house looks great! The absolute ONLY downside is that price went up nearly $200 from the original quote. Still thankful for her service and it looks good!

I would like to state how wonderful this team was. I needed immediate help and they were able to accommodate us the next day, and that was only the beginning. The house we were moving into was an absolute mess. These ladies went above and beyond in terms of cleaning moldy window sills, a very dirty kitchen, and the rest of the house. I was amazed at their attention to detail and the cleanliness of the house when they were done!! The fact that they got some kind of foreign substance off of the baseboards should be considered a small miracle. They were on-time, pleasant, and thoroughly professional. I will be hiring them again!

The Butler Burt cleaning team drove over an hour to get to my job. I had hurt my leg and was in extreme pain for days, the house was a hot mess! (Like that old show “Clean House” with Niecy Nash). Team member Michael did laundry, washed plates, tidied the areas and remade my bed. He arranged my water bottles, put food close by and removed boxes and bags of garbage. I really appreciate them going the extra mile to schedule my job- Shonntay was extremely empathetic and willing to listen to my woes. I am happy I used this crew and will do so again!😍

Dawn and her team did a super job cleaning my parents house after we emptied it out - they made the old wood floors shine and the living/dining rooms, 4 bedrooms, a finished basement and 3 bathrooms sparkling clean; the kitchen looked new - including windows, oven, fridge and ceiling fans. It’s ready to be put on the market and shown. Reasonable pricing. Great personality and fair. Highly Recommend!

I could not be happier with the service provided by All Through the House. My new home is clean and sanitary and the ladies took care of me with less than 4 hours notice. Really appreciate them understanding my urgent need and stepping in to help! Highly recommend this team.

They arrived right on time, brought their own equipment and supplies, and their cleaning went above and beyond my expectations. They were experienced, capable, and professional. The house really sparkled when they were done. Their rate was also better than others in the area. I will certainly hire them again in the future.

Cynthia was very good at communication and was here on time for the initial interview. She e-mailed the night before the first date to confirm and was on time the next a.m. for her first day to clean my home. She was fast, efficient, accommodating and did excellent work. She worked overtime but refused to accept the extra money I offered. Very satisfied with this residential house cleaner and have scheduled her for a once a week service.
