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. 

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.

We desperately needed last minute house cleaning for the house we were just about to move into and Beaverton House Cleaning was the most responsive to our search. Despite some minor scheduling issues in which I was grateful for Emiliano's very present communication, they were able to come in promptly and we were very happy with the job that they did! The cleaning team were friendly and professional, they were very thorough and left the house sparkling and smelling good. I like how Beaverton House Cleaning respects the need for green house cleaning products too.

Nicole and Audrey cleaned our house for the first time last week. They were thorough and professional. They got in and cleaned our house spotless. They even cleaned things that I didn't know needed cleaning. I am looking forward to having them back in a few weeks.

I used this service provider twice. Once for a whole house cleaning and once for a move out clean. Both times they did an absolutely wonderful job. They are fast and pay attention to details. The house was sparkling clean afterword. I will continue to contact them for all cleaning needs in the future.

I will definitely be using Beaverton House Cleaning service again in the future. The cleaning team, lead by Elizabeth, was hired to do a move-out cleaning. They did a great job cleaning my 4000 sq. ft. home, it was spotless! The company owner is very professional and responded to my needs with top-notch punctuality. I would gladly recommend this company to people looking for quality house cleaning services. Thank you Emiliano, looking forward to having Elizabeth and the crew clean my new house in the future.

GZ Cleaning did a great job cleaning the inside of our rental house to get it ready for the next tenant. There was a bit of a mix-up to finalize the bid, but when it came time for the work to be done, the woman who cleaned the house was prompt and prepared and very through. Thank you!

She is not a professional cleaner. She arrived very late. She only cleans "clean" houses. She does not clean dirty houses. If your house is dirty, she will not clean it. Why is she cleaning houses? She wants $50. an hour to clean Clean houses. What a joke. DO NOT HIRE HER!!! Lidiya has posted a response to my original review which is an out and out lie. She has been dishonest and has lied in her response in an attempt to protect her reputation. Lidiya stated, after she arrived at my home 15 minutes late, that she found "all the animal feces" in my house. This is not true. There was NO ANIMAL FECES in my house. Lidiya also stated that it requires a special team of people to clean my house, and that it requires more than one person to clean my house. This is not true either. I hired Lidiya to clean my home. She arrived 15 minutes late, then quickly walked to my kitchen, and refused to clean my house, and left. My 2 small dogs were contained in a dog area. They did not bite her and she did not touch my small dogs. And there was NO ANIMAL FECES in the dog area or any other place in my home, including the kitchen. My house was simply dirty, as I had been sick, with Cancer, and could not clean my house due to illness. I contacted a different house cleaner named Evelyn who arrived at my home the same day. She cleaned my kitchen floor in less then one hour, did laundry, cleaned other parts of my home, and only charged $25 an hour. Evelyn is professional, has integrity, tells the truth, and does a fantastic job. Evelyn played with my dogs, and they loved her. And, she loved my dogs! Lidiya advertises that she is a professional. She is not. Lidiya lies. She arrives late to appointments. She refuses to work, and she left me in a lurch, and bailed out on me. She then went online and posted lies about my home, stating my house contained lots of feces and required several people, i.e. " a team" to clean it, just to cover up her unprofessional behavior. I have reported this unprofessional behavior to thumbtack. I do not recommend hiring Lidiya for any cleaning jobs unless you want to be treated the way she treated me. I have attached a photo of my kitchen floor which Evelyn cleaned in less then an hour on the same day that Lidiya bailed out on me. It does not require a team to clean my house. It only requires one person who is caring professional, and actually works. Lidiya, I recommend that you stop lying. If you post more lies about my home, I will contact Thumbtack and report you again.
