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.

I'm selling my house and asked for a deep clean to get the house ready for pictures and showings. Rebecca's team did a great job cleaning and were nice and professional.

My house is so clean I could cry! As a Mom of two virtual learners and an infant I barely have time to cook and do my laundry these days. Deeper cleaning is just not possible. Ana made the house sparkling clean! She will definitely be coming back.

This was the first time I used Rebecca's Customized Cleaning. I have to say, I'm over the top happy with the deep cleaning service. When I moved into my house I had green lines in the toilet and no matter what I used or how often I cleaned them they never came clean. Rebecca's cleaning crew was able to clean the green stains out and make the toilet look new. I have never been able to clean my house as Rebecca's crew was able to do.

They did an awesome job! My mother just bought a house so we had it deep cleaned before she moved in. It was super dirty and they did a fantastic job getting it all cleaned. Would absolutely recommend them!

Sophie came out to the house, right on time and did an amazing job. I wanted an initial clean before starting bi-weekly services. I was not disappointed and am looking forward to working with Rebecca's Customized Cleaning again.

The best cleaner have ever worked with. She's very straight forward and humble and very considerate. Her job is exceptional and professional, she was not rushing, she took her time. Very punctual respond on time. My house was sparkling, I feel like sitting in my bathroom all day. She went far and beyond for the whole house. I'll definitely want her back again.

Karen went above and beyond, deep cleaning my entire house herself! I work 60 hours a week and can’t keep up with deep cleaning, so I decided to have someone come in and do it. We talked about what I wanted done and she did everything plus some! Will definitely be using her in the future and would highly recommend to anyone! Thank you so much, Karen!

I moved to my condo a month ago and I needed after moving cleaning. After I filled out the application, Ana was first who called to me. She came to my house next day and gave me estimates. The price was reasonable and we scheduled appointment. Ana and her helper came on time. They work 3,5 hours. After they finished my house sparkling. Girls are nice and very responsible. They work with all requirements of safety during COVID-19. I was absolutely happy. Highly recommend them.

This was the worst cleaning I have ever received. They say they have a checklist and they provide detailed services. She was at my house from 10:30 am until 6pm. She showed up an hour and a half late. I was forced to push my work meetings back because of this……And yet after being at my home all day- I still had to tell her to please Mop the floor, wipe the surfaces…etc. I’m not sure what she was doing the entire day as I was working downstairs from home and could not micromanage her cleaning at the time. I was so upset. This was also the most important deep clean as I was trying to sell and list my home, which they were aware of. They were going to charge me $350- $400 for the entire cleaning. But I managed to pay $300 which I would never ever pay again or hire again. They were not I totally understanding of my frustration nor were they empathetic about their short comings. Please be careful who you hire for such important jobs. See photos below-
