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.

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.

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.

She has to learn how to clean! She arrived at my house spend 3 hours, left a bigger mess and had the audacity to charge $ 133.00 Dlls. Worst experience I had with a cleaning lady.

Absolutely amazing, my house is sparkling from top to bottom (and it was a MESS before). They really did a good job on the deep cleaning. I’m so happy I will be booking regular visits to help maintain the new clean.

Aaron was wonderful- responsive, thorough, and friendly. He and his sister did impeccable work. Their attention to detail was unsurpassed and they got areas of my house sparkling (bathroom, etc.) that had never been so clean! I am beyond pleased with their work. Would 100 percent recommend and look forward to using them in the future.

Zofia did an amazing job! She was able to schedule a job for the same week. She came in did and top to bottom clean so I could put my house on the market. I was amazed at her response time and she was a consistent, quick communicator. She was also flexible and communicated with my realtor when I was unable to be there. Highly recommended!

Unbelievable! First time, Kathy came with four loaves of pumpkin bread and cooked gluten free for the celiac in our home. She spends five hours and left the house beautifully shiny, better than new. She treats us like family and is trustworthy and meticulous. We recommend hiring Kathy for any of your cleaning/cooking needs.

Excellent service, everything super clean! Great British accent sounds great in the house, we'll definitely have her back! Great job! Thanks!!!

Denise was extremely unprofessional. She cancelled last minute which left me in a bind trying to clean the house before we moved in with a 2 month old after a major renovation. Very disappointed and surprised after reading the other positive reviews. I would stay away since she doesn't stay true to her word and can't be trusted.

He really took the time to make my house amazing, it was spotless by the time I got home. He took care of little details that I never expected him to, definitely went above and beyond!!! My boyfriends reaction when he came over was “wow i didn’t think your place was dirty, until I realized how clean it could be” lol. I recommended to my neighbor and will be hiring again on a consistent basis.

Kimberly and her team are extremely thorough, punctual, responsive, and care much about their clients. They always handle everything with deep care and detail, leaving no stone unturned, and are efficient when needed as well as effective especially with our historic house in Bethlehem. They communicate very well on workload and expectations, prices are reasonable for the market today (and don’t upcharge for some extra items), and they meet every need for cleaning and laundry services. It is important to have transparency, honesty, and integrity, and this team defies all odds and achieves these values with a bang. Both Pleasant and Easy to work with, my wife and I will be looking forward to continuing to work with for many years to come.
