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.

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.

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 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.

They flat out know how to clean. Need I say more? Since moving to the area, I was having trouble finding house cleaners who knew how to do the most basic of housekeeping tasks. Things were given the most minimal of attention, if any, even after reminders. This is not the case with this crew. They do a complete and thorough job.

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 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.
