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. 

Reviews for Delaware house cleaners

My house was a mess so I had them come in and do a deep clean. I have COPD and I cannot clean. They came on time, wore masks and cleaned everything beautifully. I have not had my house this clean for a very long time. I was very impressed. I am going to have them come every 2 weeks to keep the house up. I highly recommend 2A'S Cleaners!

I highly recommend DMS Cleaning! They came out to do a quote the day after I asked for one and then they were able to get cleaners to our house the same day! They literally cleaned every single inch of our house: mirrors, windows, vents, ceiling fans, beams in our vaulted living room, underneath the couch and rugs, and so much more. We’ve lived at our house for 5 years and it’s never looked so clean. I am beyond impressed with DMS Cleaning and we will be using them on a weekly basis. Thank you so much DMS, you guys are amazing!

Absolutely phenomenal job. I was blown away by how thorough they were and how clean the entire house was. Every room smelled as clean as the day we moved in, when it was brand new. I can not recommend Eve and Millie enough, they’re fantastic!

My two environmental house cleaners were extremely thorough, worked efficiently, multi tasked and were super friendly. They demonstrated experience and worked independently, needing only the detailed instructions that they were given during their visit to give a quote.

Maria & Eziquiel are amazing! They responded to my initial inquiry very fast. They came out to our home for a free quote. We just had a deep clean, and plan to have them come every two weeks going forward. Our house is spotless!

Quick response, quick to come out for an estimate and a couple days later came to do a deep clean. Worth their weight in gold! They came, got straight to work, and knocked everything out. I am hoping to get Geralda herself on a regular schedule at my house. She’s fantastic!

They did a FANTASTIC job cleaning our apartment at move out. We lived there for four years and it was spotless after they got done. They had competitive rates, were right on time, and performed well above expectations. We are going to use them for our new house as well. SUPER pleased!

Excellent deep clean! After having a baby and hosting relatives for the holidays, my house was in bad shape. Stefens home provided a true deep clean of my home, spending plenty of time on bathrooms and in the kitchen. They even dusted my vaulted ceilings, skylights, ceiling fans and vacuumed my couches and fabric chairs (we have several cats). They were also very accommodating with timing and have many payment options, including credit card, which is a big plus. I will definitely hire them again and highly recommend them.
