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.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a house cleaner when social distancing?

If you hire a house cleaner to clean the inside of your home, do not make physical contact. Stay at least 6 feet apart at all times, sanitize any surfaces after cleaning and wash your hands thoroughly. Exchange all payments digitally instead of with cash. When contacting a house cleaner, put a plan in place to ensure everyone's safety.

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.

Should I hire a move-out cleaning service or do it myself?

You may benefit from hiring a professional move-out cleaning service, depending on your budget, time frame and whether you will be getting a deposit back. Hiring a cleaning service takes the stress out of your move. But if you’ve had your house regularly deep-cleaned, or if your landlord will charge you for cleaning anyway, you can save costs by DIY-ing it.

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. 

When viewing house cleaners on Thumbtack, you might see a Top Pro badge. This indicates that the service is one of the most popular and highly-rated professionals using the platform.

We hired Maria and her team to come in last week and clean our house. I couldn't be happier. After a hard day at work coming home to a beautifully cleaned house was the best feeling. I can't wait to have them back again next month!

Booking was very easy. They were up front about pricing. My house had not been professionally cleaned in several years, but after their visit, it is very very clean - bathrooms, kitchen, baseboards, everything is all very clean. The crew was very polite and worked very hard. Thank you.

I hired ica cleaning for a deep clean to get ready for appraisal. They did a spectacular job I was shocked how nice my house looked when I got home. The price was very fair and significantly lower than the competition. I will be hiring them again in the future for sure

I had used this company before for another house and they did a great job (albeit in hindsight, they didn’t have to clean much accept for the floors, as almost everything was new). I decided to go with them again when I went to sell my house. I scheduled their services for the day before the photographer. When I arrived the morning pics were to be taken, I discovered that although they had been given free reign of the house for the entire day, the only thing that had been cleaned was the “window blinds, two ceiling fans” and swept the floor! They didn’t mop the bamboo floor, vacuum the carpet, clean the face of appliances, missed washing windows and the shower and didn’t clean behind the sinks. . All of these things I had done by me in a panic before the photographer arrived. Additionally, My cleaning supplies that I had left under the sink were used, rather than their own supplies! To top it off they left the garbage of my used cleaning supplies on my back porch and stole a stepping stool I had left in an upstairs closet. In my haste I had paid them for there services before going over to inspect, as I thought the job had been completed. Needless to say I will never be using their services again.

Maria showed up on time and worked hard all day long. She is an excellent house cleaner and we have already reached out to her again to come back and help my pregnant wife and I keep up with the mess our two teenagers and dogs can make. Thank you Maria.

Maria came to my house and provided an estimate for her work, which I really appreciated. This was much nicer than some of the automated responses to my inquiry. She came and cleaned and did an exceptional job! I was very impressed with her work and had a great rapport with her. Unfortunately, she failed to show up for the second cleaning. We had confirmed a few days prior, and she never contacted me to say that she was not able to come. I left a few texts and voicemails for her, but it's been 24+ hours and no response. I'm not the first reviewer to say she was a no-show, so this may be a pattern. I'm bummed...she does great work, but I need someone reliable and who communicates when things come up.

My words are not going to be able to properly describe the level of excellence provided by this team. I am still incredulous!! My house glows from stem to stern after this initial cleaning. Our previous housekeeper left to have her first baby just before Covid restrictions set in. She decided to be a stay at home mom. So... for a year and a half now, well... Let's just say, I am not a good housekeeper. This team came in and worked each room from one corner to the other. Words just cannot describe the detail and perfection of their work. Nor can they express my gratitude!
