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 recently hired Amanda (Professional Cleaning Services). Great first impression, both meeting prior to and day of our first house cleaning. Nice work, from top-to-bottom! You won't be disappointed, should you decide to engage her for cleaning services.

Matilde and Antonio arrived promptly for their first time cleaning of the condo. It needed a thorough, deep cleaning, and they went over and beyond!! The house was shining, and smelled so clean when they were done. I would definitely recommend them highly, and look forward to having them again.👍👏

We had Karen come to our house to do a deep clean after recently moving in and she was fantastic! She got all the dust and made sure even the smallest nooks and crannies were clean. Would definitely hire her again. :):)

Deirdra did a fantastic job for my move out, full house cleaning I needed done. She was able to schedule my appointment with very short notice, was extremely responsive through the process, and did an excellent job of cleaning for a fair price. I would certainly recommend The Perfect Sparkle for your cleaning needs!!!

I made arrangements with Deirdre to check out my house and give me a price. She cancelled and rescheduled the appointment three times. Finally just decided to come and clean on Oct 5 at 9:30am. I received a text at 9:08 saying that she could not make it. Four cancellations and still no one to clean my house while I am recovering from surgery. DON’T WASTE YOU TIME with The Perfect Sparkle.

My house looks amazing. Thank you! I’m pretty sure parts of it look better than when we moved in! The bathrooms and kitchen are literally sparkling. Photo credit to the cleaners but it really does look this good.

I could not have been more pleased with how the house looked when Patti was done with it. She had great attention to detail and made sure everything looked great. We will definitely be having her back to clean again.

We had a great experience with Rhonda! She was kind and compassionate with my Dad who is sick. His house was very messy. She worked hard all day to clean it up! We plan to have her back again soon.

I really wanted to leave a good review...we purchased a home that was not very clean and wanted to save time by hiring cleaners while we started renovating. Ebony and her husband arrived on time and seemed up to the task. I was very honest from the start in letting her know that the house was very dirty and caked with dust and pet dander. She did an excellent job cleaning my appliances but that's as a far as it went. My windows and walls were still black with dust and dirt. Windowsills were not touched nor were doorframes. Super upset to have paid $200 to have just appliances cleaned.

Pattie showed up right on time. She took the time to go room to room to see if there were any specific questions or concerns and explained what she would be doing, before she began. She explained options that could be added to the deep cleaning in specific areas if I felt necessary. She came well prepared to clean different types of flooring (I have carpet and luxury vinyl) as well as different surfaces throughout the house (painted, wood, glass, stainless steel, countertops etc. ) She asked me to identify things or areas I did not want touched or needed special care. When she finished, the house was thoroughly cleaned and looked like new. I would highly recommend Pattie. She is very kind, professional, and because she chooses to do the work herself, I feel reassured future cleanings will be consistent with the service I received this first time. Thank you Pattie

Did an INCREDIBLE job on a move-out clean for my husband and I! She was even super considerate and got us a card to congratulate us on our new house! Definitely a keeper - i'll be contacting her in the future for sure! Wish I could give her 7/5 stars!!!

Responded very quickly to my initial inquiry, and were able to meet a tight schedule to get my home cleaned and neat before some last minute guests came for the weekend. Detail-oriented, friendly, and my house looks and smells fresh every time I walk through the door. Will definitely use again!

This professional worked diligently for hours on my project. I had no idea that she would need as much time as she did (my fault) because she was so thorough. It is easy to keep up with my house cleaning now because of her excellent work. She showed up on time she was professional and I would hire her again in a minute.
