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.

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.

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.

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.

What should I ask a house cleaner or maid before hiring them?

There are many questions to ask a cleaning service before you hire them to make sure they’re the right fit. These questions might include:

  • How much do you charge?
  • How do you set your prices -- per hour or per square foot? Or, do you charge a flat rate?
  • What is your past work experience? Can I see a list of references?
  • Are you accustomed to working with different home or apartment types and sizes?
  • Can you work with children or pets in the house?
  • What types of cleaning products do you use?
  • Do you bring your own cleaning supplies and products?
  • How often can you clean my home?
  • Is there anything you recommend I do (or don't do) to my home before you arrive?

What is included in a deep house cleaning vs. a basic house cleaning?

A basic house cleaning typically includes tasks like carpet cleaning, wiping countertops, taking out the trash, doing the laundry and washing dishes. A deep house cleaning is a much more involved process, where all aspects of the home are given full attention for a cleanout. In a deep house cleaning, the cleaners will wet-wipe everything from door frames to light switch plates, making sure to also clean walls, windows, air vents, ceiling fans, furniture and more.

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.

My house had not been deep cleaned in over a year and my upkeep has been minimal due to work. They did an amazing job to make my house clean again. They really helped me out and looking forward to having my house stay clean now with their help!! They exceeded my expectation.

We hired Bia to do a move out clean. This large 5 bedroom house had housed a menagerie of pets. She was fast and thorough! The place was cleaner then when we moved in. We are planning on hiring her for regular deep cleanings of our “farm” in the future.

Sc cleaning services did an amazing job on my house. I was looking for a cleaning service last minute and was happy to receive a message that they could clean for me within a 2 day notice. This team does a thorough job, very detailed, and had my house looking beautiful. The owner communicates very well, is very prompt and I will definitely be having them come back to clean.

I keep my house clean, but it needed an ultra deep clean that I just didn't have time to do. It was amazing to come home to a fresh clean house which I've never had done before. I would totally recommend a breath of fresh air. Especially for full time working moms with a husband and 5 kids.

I met the ladies from M&M cleaning today for my initial quote. We discussed a deep clean and bi-weekly cleanings going forward. She was available for a deep clean immediately & my house has NEVER been so clean. Everything was scrubbed top to bottom. I have 3 little dogs that shed alot (I have to run our robot vacuum daily), a teenager and messy man 🙄 They went above and beyond my expectations. Can't wait to have these ladies clean my house every other week.

Jackeline and her team did an amazing job on my house. My husband and kids even commented on what a great job they did. I have always been told I have a clean house but now it is sparkling. I am scheduled for a bi-weekly cleaning. I am extremely lucky to have found an honest and hard working woman.

I hired Gold Star to clean my bff's home & this is her review: When I tell you all that Kelly got my house all the way together! She will definitely be highly recommended from myself for residential cleaning needs! My house looks/feels like a whole new house! She came in, and did the damn thing! To you it might’ve been just another job but for me it was so much more! Kelly I appreciate you beyond words!

Cancelled at last minute after I took my dogs to the kennel and arranged my house to be cleaned. Very, very unprofessional and a lack of respect and courtesy for a repeat customer. Look elsewhere!!!

Susan was prompt and was able to make it to my house the day after I posted my project. However, I paid for the deep clean and came home to find there were still cobwebs in the corners.
