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.

The guys did a great job. I asked them to clean my hardwood floors and they cleaned under the furniture and around all of the edges where pet hair tends to accumulate. The house looks fantastic.

I was moving into a rental house previously occupied by six male college students. It was in the exact condition you would think. The house was supposedly already cleaned including the carpets. When I arrived for the pre-movie in inspection, I was distraught. The house was a mess and I was moving in two days. I contacted Terry on Thumbtack and he responded in less than ten minutes. I told him I needed it cleaned within two days, the condition of the house, and my expectations. I didn’t try to tie him to any dollar constraints as I expected it to be pricy because of the extent of work and the short notice. I was AMAZED with both the quality of work and the final price. Needless to say, I would happily recommend Revive and Restore to anyone based on quality, price, and professionalism. I have also scheduled them to start helping my wife around the house every other week.

Where to even begin! How about like this: SIMPLY AMAZING. My husband and I had been in the market for a new house cleaning service (but hey, we all know trying a new one the first time can be a bit scary, right?) Contour Cleaning eased ALL of those worries. To say they went above and beyond would be an understatement. I cannot recommend them enough--they were incredibly professional and cleaned things that I wouldn't have even thought to clean! They were incredibly thorough, so kind to my doggos, and so very efficient! Now, I'm off to go enjoy my clean home! If you are debating hiring Contour Cleaning...debate no more! You won't be sorry! Thank you Contour Cleaning for doing such a superb job!!

Lei and her team made my old house from the 1950’s shine! After a long move across the country, and a lengthy search for a rental home (a month in hotels and air bnb’s), by the time we got the keys to our rental and we realized how dirty it was we had been through so much, were so overwhelmed! I’ve never hired a house cleaner before, but just needed some extra help! Lei did an amazing job. Not only at cleaning but at putting my mind at ease that the job wasn’t too much for them to handle. And they handled it like pro’s! Everything smells nice, and looks great. I finally feel like this little house is our home! Time to start unpacking!

Unprofessional. After cleaning she said cleaning was a deep cleaning and not a standard cleaning like we said at the beginning so she upped the price. ( did not say this in a nice way and did not come y’all to me once she “noticed” this... I was home in my garage the whole time). Spent most of the time upstairs and completed most of the cleaning but missed some baseboards and didn’t put many items back after cleaning. (My hair brush was found in the shower and other items in the closet when they were told not to go into closets.) Since they were over the time they thought they would be here they rushed the downstairs not dusting half the items and not doing the base boards. When I tried to ask for a refund for the extra amount paid since I did not feel it was justified I was denied. So if you want your house rearranged and things left in random places while not everything gets cleaned then go with them.
