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.

Jana is very professional, punctual, responsive, and friendly. She did an amazing job cleaning my house. She recommended and picked up all the cleaning products that she’ll be using in my house. She was extremely thorough and when she was done the house looked and smelled great. I would highly recommend Jana to anyone who wants to hire an excellent cleaner.

I was really happy with the work DM did at my house. When I bought my home I dreaded having to clean the oven that was left in really bad condition by the previous owner. DM made it possible for me to cook in my oven now. They also cleaned the common areas and a couple of bedrooms in my house and the minute they left I made a 'no shoes in the house' rule. Ever since they cleaned my home I've been walking around my home barefoot and it feels great! I will definitely be hiring them again.

I couldn’t be happier with sending Barbara to clean my sister’s house. My sister, who is 9 months pregnant,was worried that it was too much cleaning for one person to do on such short notice. Barbara was amazing in cleaning the entire house in one day and left a very stressed women happy, smiling and ready to bring a new baby into her home. I highly recommend Barbara and want to give a BIG thank you for her hard work!

The team helped us out in an urgent situation! But surfaces were not cleaned to our satisfaction and areas in the house were focused on that we had not requested. For the expense, we expected a more thorough cleaning, but were overall satisfied.

The crew from Glow Cleaning Company provided cleaning services for a rental unit I own. This unit was quite a mess and they did magical work. When the work was complete, every single spot in the house was pristine! I definitely recommend this company!

We needed a deep cleaning before an open house and our time frame was tight. They responded right away and did great work. The house is sparkling— and they even spent extra time doing all they could to make our old floors look as good as possible. Highly recommend!

Jenni cleaned my son’s house and did a great job. When we informed her that she forgot to do the inside of the windows, she can back immediately to complete the job!

Adanna and her team were fabulous! We requested a deep clean before we had our baby but we ended up going into labor before the cleaning. Adanna went above and beyond to clean our house, which was not ready for a cleaning, prior to us coming home from the hospital. It was sparkling clean, neatly arranged, and perfect for new baby! She was easy to communicate with over phone and text, and flexible when the plans and point person changed. I plan to rehire Adanna and her team for monthly cleaning. I highly recommend her and her team.

Jenni was very professional with her work. She kept to her word, 3-6 hr cleaning of the house 3bedroom/ 1 bathroom. She cleaned the walls as I have requested, and it was nasty, so I thanked her and her worker for cleaning it. I am still waiting for the report from Jenni so I can send it out to the tenant, but she has been exceptional.

On Wednesday, April 23rd, 2019, I scheduled them to clean my house on Friday the 25th. I advised them that I needed a deep clean in preparation to list my house for sale. First, they just didn't show up on Friday and left me hanging. I texted them 20 minutes after they were scheduled and they said they'd come on Monday, which was rescheduled to Tuesday at 8:30 am, then texted me at 8 am asking if they were scheduled for 9:30. It's almost 10 now and they still haven't shown up or responded to attempts to contact them. I've wasted a lot of time pursuing them to clean my house, while juggling things that I was working on, for nothing. Now I need to rush around to try to have it done by someone else.

Chris was wonderful! She was super easy to schedule with and made me feel comfortable with leaving her at my home. She toured the house with me and let me show her what was most important to me to get cleaned. She did such a great job cleaning the place that we’ve already scheduled for her to come back next month. Highly recommended!
