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.

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.

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.

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.

How do I prepare for a house cleaner?

There are several things you can do in preparation for a house cleaning to improve the efficiency and quality of the job. If you’re unfamiliar with a cleaning service, hiding and locking away any obvious valuables lying around can offer great peace of mind.

Depending on the preference of the cleaner, you may need to lock up your pets before the cleaners arrive. Washing dishes and decluttering the house allows a house cleaner to do their job more effectively. And leaving special notes for the cleaners about certain areas in your home that need attention is also helpful.

Ask house cleaners near you about their tips to help you prepare for their services. 

How much should you tip maids or cleaning services?

Tipping between 15 and 20 percent is considered an appropriate tip for maids and house cleaners — just as it would with a barber, food delivery driver or taxi operator. During the holidays, you might want to consider tipping a bit more. 

It’s important to note that some housekeeping and maid services might include a tip within the service fee, which should be explained to you in the service contract. Talk to house cleaners in your area to find out what's included in their fees.

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. 

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.

We hired Broomed Cleaning Service to clean our house and they did a fantastic job. The crew was punctual and communicative during scheduling and on the day of the cleaning. We will definitely be having them come back. The house looks great.

Nellie did an incredible job! We have pets and kids and we're all home, all the time right now. Keeping the house clean is harder than ever. We left for the day and it was a dream to return to a clean house. Thank you!

Samantha was excellent. She was friendly, very easy to communicate with, and arrived right on time. She did a fantastic job cleaning the house and was completely thorough. It is clear she has an eye for detail and puts a ton of effort into her work. She also cleaned the house with non-toxic and natural cleaning supplies, which is something I really appreciate.

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.

So happy with this service! We have had serval home cleaning service and this one by far is the best! They responded so quickly to my need for home cleaning and were able to work me in quickly. The two cleaners did an amazing job, not only did they clean every room from top to bottom they tidied the house along the way. I could not ask for a better home cleaner. We are so happy with this service!

The whole process of scheduling and payment was great! The ladies showed up on time and were very respectful. It was the first time for them to be at my house so I understand there is a bit of a learning curve. The cleaning itself a light cleaning and not what I would say is a standard cleaning and why I gave four stars instead of five.

The team at Janitorial Plus LLC is top notch - detail oriented and perceptive, cleaning what needs to be cleaned, not just working from a static checklist. They were thorough, friendly and efficient and my house reached a whole new level of clean after they were here - and we have 2 large dogs, a cat and 4-6 adults living (college kids come and go) here! Definitely recommend for a deep clean!

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.

We had a cleaner scheduled, who never showed up. I wanted our house cleaned on that day, so I contacted several other cleaners. It was about noon on that day. Josin responded to me within 30 minutes and he was here at 2pm. He took time to clean everything and beyond I asked him to. His attention to details was excellent and everything was sparkling clean after he got his job done. He wanted me to walk through to make sure I was satisfied of what he did. He was very courteous and friendly.

Beth was right on time, very kind, very professional and a joy to be around. She finished the job quickly and efficiently—the house was immaculate top to bottom and smelled so fresh and clean. I noticed eco-safe cleaning products as well! She was more than respectful of our home, personal space and COVID-19 precautions. She is a star. Kit (or Cody?idk) was quick to get me on their books last minute and remained communicative and accommodating throughout the process. I look forward to regular cleanings with them.

Wow. These two are the dream team. After being frustrated with paying other companies to do just-ok cleanings this past year, I went back to cleaning my house myself. Skip ahead to being in bed after a major surgery for 3 weeks, with two dogs and a fiancé who is overworked, my house was a filthy, hairy, dusty mess. It would have taken me energy I time I just didn’t have. Jazmin scheduled me right away, and was gracious when I had to cancel at first with short notice. Today she and her partner cleaned and it was nothing short of excellent. They scrubbed every baseboard, window, door, door jam, tile, mirror, even all around the toilets, dusted every single item I have, and my floors and rugs are spotless. Our shower door hasn’t been that crystal clear I think ever! It’s like a new house and I can breathe again. Literally, my allergies were really having a hard time with all the dust and hair. I still work from home and their presence was professional, kind and comfortable. I look forward to seeing them from now on for regular cleanings.

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 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!
