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. 

When viewing house cleaners on Thumbtack, you might see a Top Pro badge. This indicates that the service is one of the most popular and highly-rated professionals using the platform.

I hired Tidy Uppers to clean our new house before we moved in. I knew I would not have the energy to deep clean and move/unpack boxes. The house looked pretty clean, but Tidy Uppers found cat hair and carpet damage that I did not initially notice. In addition to cleaning each room they wiped out the inside of cabinets, the walls, baseboards and window moldings. The only recommendation would be for them to bring along a short ladder to get ceiling fans and light fixtures better. The staff was professional and friendly, and worked very hard to make the house move in ready. If you are considering this service know that it is money well spent. I will hire them again when I need spring cleaning.

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.

As soon as I walked in the door my house smelled clean. The floors were shiny, the furniture had no dust, the tub sparkled. First time I had this service and will be continuing services. Quality job and worth the money, which is very reasonable.

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.
