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. 

What should I ask a house cleaner or maid before hiring them?

There are many questions to ask a cleaning service before you hire them to make sure they’re the right fit. These questions might include:

  • How much do you charge?
  • How do you set your prices -- per hour or per square foot? Or, do you charge a flat rate?
  • What is your past work experience? Can I see a list of references?
  • Are you accustomed to working with different home or apartment types and sizes?
  • Can you work with children or pets in the house?
  • What types of cleaning products do you use?
  • Do you bring your own cleaning supplies and products?
  • How often can you clean my home?
  • Is there anything you recommend I do (or don't do) to my home before you arrive?

How often should you have your house cleaned?

The frequency you should have your house cleaned depends on several factors, and the best professional house cleaner can give you a rough estimate of costs so you can budget how often you need someone to clean your home. 

Daily house cleaning may be necessary if you have a home with a large number of bedrooms with young children and kids, although other homeowners may benefit from weekly house cleaning. A weekly cleaner can clean the bathroom, kitchen, do laundry, vacuum and mop. An occasional deep house cleaning is most beneficial for people who have recently renovated a home or are looking to do a spring clean.

Great service. Very prompt. Very courteous. This wasn't my house they cleaned - we hired them to clean a relatives house so it could be rented. House was in dire need with lots of dog hair and they did a great job. Thank you!

My house cleaner was friendly, thorough, and checked with me several times during the cleaning process to make sure things were being done to my expectations. The house looks great and I would definitely hire her again.

I hired Queen of Clean for move out cleaning services. They arrived on time but the cleaning was terrible. This was cleaning of an empty house should’ve been a breeze to clean. I contacted the manager, she was very apologetic and offered a partial refund. I accepted the refund but would’ve much preferred being a satisfied customer.

Brandon does a great job! He shows up on time and gets right to work. If you are looking for someone to do quality, basic house cleaning, Brandon is your guy! I have had him clean twice for me now, and he is scheduled for a third time. I intend to use his services on a regular basis. C.M. Akron

The ladies showed up on time and were very friendly. They went to work right away. The job took longer than expected because the walls were coated with 8 years of heavy cigarette smoke. We ended up rewashing the walls one more time with Murphy's oil soap before we could paint over them. They did make the house smell much better and cleaner, and I believe they did the best they could in 3 hours time. The previous renters left the house extremely dirty. We appreciate them coming out on such short notice and helping us get started fixing up the house to make it livable and sanitary.

Sam was very nice. She did a fine job cleaning, however, I am rather particular and things were overlooked. To be fair, the job right before she came to my house, she ran into some difficulties so was running behind. This may not have been a normal example of her usual work.

I have tried other cleaning services and so often felt I didn't get my money's worth. Booking Maid Easy has changed that. I've had 3 different girls come to my house, bring their own supplies and equipment, and do a great job. I have gone to once a month cleaning and now have the same cleaner. All of them have been prompt, professional, honest, thorough and consistent in their work. I like that they are confident enough to ask me to look around and let them know if they missed anything. If I have an extra task---like vacuuming my kitchen window treatment or the exhaust fan in the bathroom--they are always cheerfully willing to do it! I really appreciate that my payment happens on-line and that communication with the company through email is quick and efficient! If I could give 6 stars, I would!

I can honestly say, I was excited to meet with Blair. She returned e-mails in a timely manner and answered any questions I had without reserve. We had set up for her to come to our house at 5:45pm this week to do a walk thru and give me a better idea of pricing for bi-weekly cleaning. At 4:30 on the day she was scheduled to come by, she sent me a text message asking if we could reschedule to Friday since she would be in my area. I called her to see what time she would be through since I had another person coming by to do a walk thru estimate on Friday already. Once she found out I was considering another person besides her, she stated that she wasn't interested and was just going to "bow out" and ended the conversation. I can honestly say that I am disappointed as I felt she was a promising fit. So unfortunately I cannot speak about her cleaning skills.
