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.

Should I hire a move-out cleaning service or do it myself?

You may benefit from hiring a professional move-out cleaning service, depending on your budget, time frame and whether you will be getting a deposit back. Hiring a cleaning service takes the stress out of your move. But if you’ve had your house regularly deep-cleaned, or if your landlord will charge you for cleaning anyway, you can save costs by DIY-ing it.

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 are the different types of house cleaning services I can get?

There are several services offered by professional house cleaning companies, each suited for a different purpose. These services include:

  • Standard cleaning, which is a basic cleaning typically done on a weekly or monthly basis;
  • Deep cleaning, which is a detailed cleaning with more intensive work than a standard clean;
  • Move-in and move-out cleaning, which is a detailed service preparing a home for residents moving in or out;
  • Green house cleaning, which is a service that uses eco-friendly cleaning supplies and products. 

Aside from the type of cleaning services available, homeowners may also choose daily, weekly, monthly or one-time 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.

We needed to make sure that mom’s house was clean before our father returned home from a long hospital stay. I’m happy to have found Margaux's Green Cleaning to help us. They are amazing! The scheduling process was a breeze using the app and the communication leading up to cleaning day was detailed. They were on time (in fact a few minutes early!!!) and they did a thorough and beautiful job cleaning. I HIGHLY recommend Margaux's Green Cleaning! The team made sure the house was ready for dad’s return from top to bottom.

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.

They did such an amazing job! My house was sparkling clean. I am excited to have them back soon to do another clean. It smelled fresh and they added cute extra touches. They were also very easy to book with and fit me in on the date that I needed!

We hired Platinum Star Services to clean our home for a bridal shower I planned. Deana did a fantastic job so I could enjoy the party. The house sparkled when she was done! I will hire them again.

Gabe was very quick to respond to my inquiry through the app for my rental townhome and the job got completed next day itself. My tenants when they moved out did not clean the house properly especially the bath tubs, kitchen floors, windows etc. Gabe's team took care of it well. They did a quick walkthrough and gave the price and then the team waiting outside came in and cleaned it well

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!

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.
