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.

Bought a new house and needed a cleaning. They did a great job of getting it to shine. Hard workers! Cleaned like it was their own!

Julie and Andy and their kids did a great job cleaning my house in preparation for listing it. Lots of attention to detail and completed 100% of the list of tasks. Very hard workers. Communications were prompt and thorough. On time and stayed until job complete, even though it took longer than we thought.

I was very disappointed with Mila's service. I gave two stars because she was willing to come out on Memorial Day weekend and was inexpensive, but I could have just saved my money and done it myself, since I had too anyway. We are moving and requested a deep clean to show our house. It was already fairly clean, I just requested she do specific things to make it shine. Majority of the things I requested weren't even done. I had three major tasks that I hired her for, to clean baseboards, to clean the grout in my bathroom, and then vacuum, dust, and mop the house. The baseboards and grout weren't even touched! She didn't move furniture to vacuum or dust or even bother sweeping underneath things, for the places she actually vacuumed and dusted that is, because it seemed whole rooms hadn't been touched. My husband and I had to come home and not only do the things she failed to do, but REDO a lot of the cleaning she did because it was done so poorly. She rescheduled on me three times that weekend so I don't know if she was in a rush to celebrate Memorial Day, but I thought after seeing all the other reviews she would be a good decision. I should have just paid more for someone who would have done a thorough job.

I really don't want to write this review. There. I said it! I'm sorry Billie. I feel shame! But, oh dear how do I politely say this? (Deep breath) Ok. Ahem. It's just, if the world discovers what I have now discovered in finding Billie'z Clean Sweep--basically that she is the hardest working, most efficient, unbelievably effective cleaning service anyone will ever encounter, and I mean this, with prices so fair you pay more just because you want to--if you all knew this, she'd be retired somewhere in a year and I wouldn't be able to afford her! She is THAT good! Call me selfish! I hope she cleans for me forever! I don't know what I'll do now that I've experienced this level of service. There is no going back! I'll forever be disappointed in all others, because I KNOW I will never meet another "Billi'z Clean Sweep" ever again, as long as I live. Unbelievable. So there you have it. Gosh, now the world knows, the cat is out of the bag! Guys, please, don't everyone go hiring her at once! I don't know what I'd do without her! I certainly wouldn't be writing any more witty reviews, my house would be a mess, and I'd never again be happy with a cleaning service. So then they'd all dislike me, because I'd complain, and well, you see where this is going. Don't everyone hire her at once, ok? Billie!! Please don't forget the little people! In all seriousness, this is100% the real deal "as good as it gets" cleaning and service and you will *never* find another like her. She will inspire you to be a better person with her demonstration of positivity, warmth, and excellence in all she does. As an executive assistant to the owner of a private investment company, I've hired her several times now to clean newly acquired investment properties -so disgusting- they made me feel queasy and nauseated, wondering if demolition wouldn't be the more responsible decision--only to see Billi'z Clean Sweep perform nothing short of MIRACULOUS feats of what can only be described as "cleaning rennovation!" Or maybe the better word is "Domestic alchemy?" She is a miracle worker. In a world full of mediocrity, where "just good enough" is the new status quo, and "slightly too high" is the new billing standard, Billi'z Clean Sweep sets itself apart. If you are fortunate enough to have come across this review, and you still don't hire her asap and end your search for a cleaning service, I question your judgement. And I thank you!!! Because again, there are many potential customers, and only one Billie. ;) What a gem. Billie, I hope I always know you! You are so inspiring and so much more than a cleaning company. Thank you for doing the hardest work I've ever known anyone to attempt, for me! Thanks for making it affordable. Thank you for showing up immediately, and starting before I expected you to! Thank you for your optimism and for your words of kindness, wisdom. And lastly, thank you for not forgetting to always find time to clean for me once you're officially a local celebrity! I'd go crazy without you! With my deepest gratitude, Jessica
