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. 

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're hosting a wedding this weekend and have been spending every spare minute getting our backyard ready which means the inside of the house was ignored. They showed up and did an excellent job of cleaning -- heavy duty deep cleaning.

Amber and Nicki cleaned my home so well that it was above and beyond my expectations. It was not an easy jobbed they did a deep clean for me. Their work was amazing. My shower looks brand new! Most thorough and detailed cleaning I could have hoped for. Great value too. Would refer Prim and Proper to anyone looking for a great house cleaning service.

Amelia is truly AMAZING. My home has never SHINED like it did when Amelia was finished. She cleaned my neglected house, my bathrooms sparkle. She dusted, vacuumed, cleaned and organized my fridge. She is a very sweet person and easy to work with.

My husband and I are thrilled with the work Lizbeth did cleaning our home. Spending money on house cleaning is a luxury for my family, so it's so disappointing when the work quality is subpar, as has been the case with other cleaning companies. I decided to hire Bright Cleaning based on their reviews and they definitely did not disappoint! Liz did a standard clean for us with a deep clean of the baseboards. Her attention to detail, fair pricing, and friendly professionalism was amazing. Communication was easy and quick and she confirmed the appointment with me the night before. We are so happy with the job she did that we're planning to have her come back every month!

The reason I hired a professional cleaning service was for one specific job, which the task was explained to the owner. That job was not performed. I also was told that I would receive a call 30 minutes before the job was complete, so that I could view the house. That was also not done. An average cleaning was performed and I'm disappointed in the lack of following directions. Will be contacting management.

Maria was nice but came late. Then we walked through the house. I asked her to make sure to get windows, drawers, shelves and to pay special attention to the bathrooms to prepare for us to move in to our new house. The floors looked great but she didn’t clean out any drawers or shelves. The window linings were filthy and she missed our half bath entirely. I will not be hiring her again.

Erika did so good and she is such a nice person to have in my house 😊 I’m thankful she could clean my home when I am too busy and lacking energy. Thank you for making my life easier. Worth every penny!

Erika communicated well before, during and after our initial meeting and then when she and her co-worker showed up on the cleaning day. They listened to my wife as she went through each room explaining what she expected and then did a thorough cleaning in a reasonable amount of time as they were becoming familiar with the house. They're very friendly and accommodating and a pleasure to work with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them based upon only one visit.
