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 West Linn house cleaners
Tina O.
I requested a deep clean of a house that was basically already clean, and empty, and I found that many surfaces were barely cleaned, including smears on windows (so was just wiped once in a circle), blinds not cleaned, surfaces not cleaned to the edges or corners. Disappointed. I paid for a deep clean.

Nina and Tanya were great. My house sparkled. They arrived on time, were careful with my belongings, and left my house very clean. This was my first service and I will definitely be using their services as a repeat customer.

I feel horrible leaving a bad review but I have to be honest. I was expecting 4 cleaners to come to my home. That is what we agreed to since I have over 5,000 sq I needed them to clean. We both agreed that less then 4 cleaner would not be able to clean my home in 5 hours. Only 2 cleaners showed up. They did a decent job, could have been a lot better. Charging $550. But it’s very upsetting, they arrived 40 minutes late without letting me know. I messaged and called them to no reply. I had meeting and errands to run on a specific schedule and it was all thrown off. My front door was left wide open the whole time the cleaning was going on. Not only was the house full of flies but we found a mouse in the house that evening, (please note, we lived in this house for many years and never ever!!!! have had any mice in our house). The cleaners were very very kind. This is probably the first negative review I have ever left, but the situation I was put into made me feel very uncomfortable.

If I could put in no stars they earned it. Very poor, I would not recommend this group to anyone. Save your money and get a professional group to clean your house.

I am so pleased with the move-out cleaning service on my ~1,300 sq. ft. home. Arturo and his team went above and beyond to provide a thorough deep cleaning for the entire house. Overall, I am so impressed and grateful for the honest and exceptional service provided. I will definitely reach out to Janitorial Plus for future cleaning projects.

Amelia did an amazing job cleaning our house after we moved out. It looked better than when we moved in. She is very detail oriented and didn't miss a thing. I will definitely be using Amelia again.

Awful experience. I requested a deep clean so that I can list my house for sale 1 month in advance. I had to confirm with them 2 days prior to my cleaning because I never heard from them. I was very explicit that they needed the be there by 1:30. Today at 1:45 I had to contact them because they had not shown yet AND they did not contact me to let me know. They said “she’s on her way.” Two problems with that...they told me they were sending 2-3 people and they knew I had an appointment at 2 which is why I needed them here by 1:30 at the latest. Super disappointing...my house is going on the market tomorrow and I was left to figure out how to get a deep clean in time because of no communication or promise to keep commitment. Customer service is definitely not a priority neither is communication.

Arturo got back to me quickly and was able to send out a team quickly! The team arrived on time and they went above and beyond to work with me when I unexpectedly had another contractor here at the same time. The team was so professional and courteous! I will be having them out again to clean my house! Thank you for everything!
