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.

Maione and her crew did a great job doing a deep cleaning after moving into my new house. They worked fast and paid great attention to details. I'm looking forward to having her clean my house on a regular base.

This was a gift for my parents for a full deep house cleaning and they were thrilled!! The quality of work was great and they would like to have the woman come back again in the future because of how well she cleaned and how nicely she put things back that she moved. Great company!! Thanks!!

The maid was on time, polite and professional. I was charged for a first time/deep cleaning but I didn’t feel it was such, just a light touch up in the main areas I had pointed out as important to me and there were def spots missed. I have a 4bdrm and 2.5 bath house which I only needed 3 bdrm and 1.5 bath cleaned along with the main areas and it took 5 hrs which is not her fault, they should’ve scheduled two maids for a house of my size. She did well with our master bath which I appreciated but not sure I would consider this a deep cleaning.

My wife and I had a 2 major remodelling projects done to our house.We had a major kitchen upgrade and then had our family room completely overhauled...there was a mess everywhere. We had a red brick wall, in the family room, downsized. There was red brick dust everywhere. La Bella Cleaning Service came in and after 3 to 4 to almost 5 hours our house was like new. The Staff was fantastic in their dedication to detail. This was "a gift" to my wife...a one time only clean up at a very acceptable bid price but now I think we are close to contracting with LaBella Cleaning Service (Rochelle) to have Her clean from September to June. (My wife teaches school and would clean during the summer months...this was not an issue with Rochelle.) Rochelle stopped by the house (even after providing an upfront i-time only cleaning bid on Thumbtack) and took detailed notes on my requests. I feel all of my requests were met and I couldn't be happier with the service. I would recommend LaBella Cleaning Service as a one time clean up or as a monthly service because of Her (and Her Staff's) professionalism. I am very pleased with this experience but more importantly my wife was ecstatic!!

I have been through three other cleaning companies and all three of them had to be fired. I found Darlene's Company online and I wanted to support her business because it is a black business. I was a little nervous about doing that online but Darlene was here on time. She cleaned my house like it was her own and she respected my property I truly appreciated her work. I will definitely be calling her back. Thanks Darlene!

Rochelle kept in touch with me as to when she was coming, #of employees, etc. Her team did a fantastic job! It was so nice to come home to a clean house! Her team took great care of my home. I had a deep clean done including carpets which HAD pet stains, now those stains are gone! I'll be using LaBella for monthly maintenance. Since I have a weird schedule, Rochelle is very willing to work with me to fit me in. I'm extremely pleased with LaBella and recommend to all to use their services.
