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.

They did a wonderful job of cleaning my house. I am in the process of selling house and I asked Clean Up Team to do a deep clean. My bathroom floors haven’t been this clean in years. I would recommend them to clean my house again.

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.

Careful with a house of nick backs and plants. Sees subtle things that need cleaning without my having to point them out.

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!!

Words cannot even describe how happy I was with Marcia's cleaning. My house hadn't been deep cleaned in about 4 years and she and her helper stayed 9 HOURS and cleaned my house to the point of sparkling! Literally, things are sparkling like brand new...the oven, stove top, all appliances, inside the fridge, bathtubs...everything. I was so impressed I wanted to cry with joy when I walked in. Not only is Marcia excellent at her profession, she was at my house right on time and is SO nice...it feels like she will be part of our family. I can't wait to have her over again!!

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 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!
