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.

We had the deep clean before a party. Four cleaners can and spent day cleaning my house from top to bottom! It never looked so good! I got compliments from family and at least 3 people are considering calling them to clean their houses.

Excellent service. I called them last minute to clean before a party at my house. They did a very thorough job. I will be hiring them for routine cleaning.

I came home and my house was so clean! Since we moved in 5 months ago I couldn’t get the soap spots off the faucets and they did. Everything just smelled clean and looked so good! I couldn’t be happier.

I had reached out in a bind to have my house cleaned quickly, and Sabra’s cleaning was extremely accommodating and worked me into their schedule the very next day. He was excellent with communicating via messaging and phone calls to keep me updated when he would arrive, when they had finished, as well as follow up. Once here, he listened to my requests and was extremely friendly. I felt they did a very good job cleaning my house, and it smelled nice and fresh. :) I would recommend Sabra’s.

I have never had a cleaning service come into my home so I wasn't sure what to expect. Susan and her crew were wonderful, professional and kind. They were in and out in just a little over an hour and had my home looking like it would if I had cleaned it myself and it would have taken me the better part of the day. I've scheduled my second cleaning for this week and cannot wait to come home from work to a clean house! Definitely recommend!

She was on time and very professional. However, it took her and two other people from 10am to almost 4pm to clean my house. My wood floors looked worst when she left. All of my makeup was knocked down from there shelf but not put back up. The one great job they did was the bathrooms. So thank you for cleaning those very well. This is only the second time we hire someone to clean, but we felt like prisoners in our own home. Does it usually take this long to clean 2.5 bathrooms and just vacuum stairs and the bedrooms?

We could not be happier with the job that Lucy and her husband Yoayl did for us today. Our house is absolutely sparkling! I have a bad back, and have been unable to deep clean for a long time - well, they've made this place look like we just moved in. A few examples of the "extra mile" they went for us: 1) Lucy kept working in spite of one of our overly-friendly cats triggering an allergy attack, 2) the pair worked for 5 hours! and 3) as they were about to leave, I asked Lucy's advice on a mildew-in-the-grout issue that's been bugging me, and she INSISTED on addressing it herself, then and there (although I'm sure she wanted nothing more at that point than to go straight home). This was a one-time deep cleaning for us, but as soon as circumstances allow us to do a regularly-scheduled cleaning, we'll go right back to Lucy and Yoayl. I'd recommend them to anyone who values skill, tenacity, work ethic, etc. Oh, I almost forgot - as a special bonus, they're both as nice and friendly as you could possibly hope for. :)
