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.

How long does it take to clean a house professionally?

Generally, getting your house cleaned professionally can take several hours. The time it takes for house cleaners to complete their job depends on the size of your home, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms you have, the type of service you require and the condition of your house. It also might depend on how many employees are cleaning and the supplies they are using. If you get recurring cleaning services, the first visit might take a bit longer than the subsequent visits. 

When choosing the best house cleaner for you, ask for an estimate about how long their services will take.

How much is a house cleaning?

The national average cost for house cleaning ranges between $25 and $50 per hour, per cleaner. However, the cost of house cleaning services near you might be different.

House cleaning prices vary based on how many square feet your home is, how dirty your house gets and how often the cleaning service comes. And, prices can be lower in areas with a lower cost of living, higher in big cities or affluent regions.

Some companies charge a set amount — such as 5 cents — per square foot, with a minimum amount, such as $100. You may save money by increasing the frequency of your house cleaning visits. Often a company will charge you less per cleaning when you schedule more cleanings per month. The cost advantage rewards your loyalty, and also reflects the fact that more frequent cleanings make it easier to maintain a high level of cleanliness in your home. A housecleaning service may charge more for the first visit or for one-time services than for recurring cleanings.

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.

Tati did a couple of house cleanings as I prepared to relocate. She was on-time and did a tremendous job on cleaning the floors, bathrooms, and refrigerator. Easy to schedule, too.

They stole my money and didn’t clean at all. I was away at a funeral and they lied and said they cleaned the house and did literally nothing. They stole stuff out of the house and left it totally dirty. Run when u see them. Please don’t use them. Had I know they were thieves I never would’ve allowed them on my property

When scheduling the cleaning I explained the house had not been professionally cleaned in 1 1/2 years and was wanting a move out cleaning. Marlon suggested a deep clean. I agreed. One person was sent who worked 3 hours, but I was not provided the deep clean I was expecting. Be sure to clarify exactly what you want, how many cleaners are coming and the rate.

Bruna and her team have been cleaning my house for about a month now and I am so happy I hired her! She told me they were "very good and very fast" and she was right! They have erradicated the dust I have been fighting and each week when she leaves the house smells great and everything is sparkling clean. If you are looking for a reliable cleaning company, call Bruna. You won't be disappointed!!

Keisha did a great job cleaning my elderly mother's home. She worked diligently organizing her knick knacks, polishing the furniture, sweeping and moping the floors, and cleaning the windows. In addition to being a true professional, she was friendly and personable to my mother. If you are looking for a house cleaner who gets the job done, you should call Keisha. I would definitely recommend her.

Sousa Cleaning did a move out clean up for us at our 4800 sq ft home. It was cleaner than it was the day we moved in! They worked so efficiently and quickly to get the job done in a timely manner. They brought all of their own equipment and supplies and even found items that we may have left behind otherwise. The house smelled and looked amazing when they left! They were very friendly, easy to work with and very accommodating! I highly recommend them and will be calling them again!

Punctual, friendly and thorough. Upon arrival they went straight to work and didn't stop until complete. My house looks and smells good, they even organized my messy office, fully dusted and clean my grand child's finger prints off the windows and doors!

I contacted Ana for a DEEP cleaning & she was able to fit me in the same day since I was off work. My house was a mess from having company stay over & they was able to put me back on track in less than 3 hours. She paid attention to detail & she listened to my concerns about not waking my infant up. She made my home livable again. I'm going to make her my regular cleaning company 2x a month. I'll add a few photos of some things she did.

I had a long day. I met the team in the morning and Rosemery told me what she needed and that she started upstairs. From there, I headed to work. Let me just say, I got home and I wasn't sure what to expect. I walked in and started crying. I have never seen my house look so spectacular. They didn't just clean, they organized and tidied up. My beds were made, quilts were laid out. I could not believe it. They even cleaned my dogs' beds and cats' litter boxes! I will absolutely have them come back, and I will absolutely be a long time customer. They did such a beautiful job. So beautiful. Thank you so much, Rosemery and team!
