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.

This was my first time using a cleaning service and Rhonda was awesome!! She was punctual, personable, and made me feel comfortable through the entire process. Her cleaning is impeccable, my house is cleaner now, than it was when I first moved in! I will definitely be contacting Rhonda in the future and referring her to all my friends!

My family and I had the need to have a family members house cleaned for move-out. After looking on Thumbtack, we decided to give KD Super Cleaning the job. They were so great throughout the whole scheduling process, helping us with a difficult situation, and were able to come out on a Saturday which was greatly appreciated. The day before, they called to confirm the appointment and then the morning of, they confirmed the time again. For the actual cleaning, they are extremely prompt. They arrived to the house before I did and were ready to jump in and start. My family and I are hugely impressed with the work that was completed. It was a huge task and they completed it promptly and so well. What speaks to me most in a review is if a person will use them again - let me tell you, if I decide to have my house cleaned, KD will be who I reach out to.

Rhonda and Tommy were great. Tommy showed up right on time and worked nonstop to clean our house from top to bottom. It was spotless! He didn’t hesitant to make sure everything was immaculate. I would definitely recommend them to another family looking for a deep cleaning.

I wish I’d remember the young man’s name that came to clean. He was very nice and particular. He wanted to make sure everything suited me. He worked non stop from the time he got to my house till he left. I felt bad that he didn’t get a lunch. He deep cleaned my house and it looks and smells terrific. I am now going to ask them to come twice a month. I recommend them highly.

Janelle was absolutely wonderful. She was prompt with arriving on time and paid attention to every detail in cleaning EVERYTHING. The house sparkles and smells wonderful. I am so happy that I believed her other reviews and hired her to clean every two weeks. I have already recommended her to some friends.

Janelle and her mom, Nancy, did a deep clean for us after we moved into house that needed a lot of work. They were friendly, diligent and did an amazing job -- especially in the grimy master bathroom! They really took their time in the kitchen, too, and made me feel good about our little girl bounding around the (formerly) dirty house. Highly recommend!

After going through several no-shows with other cleaning people, I was ready to give up. So glad I decided to contact Esther. She was prompt, professional and I love the way my house is soooo clean! They show up every time and do a wonderful job! Great pricing, great service, a really great business.

I hired Immaculate Home Reflections to give our new home a deep clean before we moved into it. They were incredibly responsive, very professional and the quality of their work was very high. I was thrilled with how clean the house was and their attention to detail. The price was very fair for the size and dirtiness of the home, as well as having a lot of windows, some with up to 20 panes of glass per. I would absolutely hire them again and highly recommend them if you are looking for a cleaner.

A great first impression was made because of her responsiveness to communication. JZC understood that my schedule needed to be flexible since I was coming in from out of town. I was cleaning out my mother's house and the movers rearranged my schedule. Janelle understood completely and worked with me on the timing to preview the house. When they came back to start the job, they promised that they would be there until completion. They worked their #$%^'s off to get my house clean. I was still moving out and under a bit of construction when they arrived, and they were able to choreograph their work so that none of us got into each others' way or undid what had been done. My mom had lived there for 17 years, and the house was cleaner when they left than it was when I bought it. . .I even pulled my best Mommie Dearest white glove test, and didn't find a stitch of dirt. Had I not been there while they were working, I would swear that there was a team of 10 people in the house. . . I wish I could package them up and bring them to Atlanta where I live. . . I could use their thoroughness here. I would gladly use JZC again and again and HIGHLY recommend them. So glad I found them on Thumbtack!!!! Thanks Janelle and Nancy!!! Forrest
