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.

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. 

What are the different types of house cleaning services I can get?

There are several services offered by professional house cleaning companies, each suited for a different purpose. These services include:

  • Standard cleaning, which is a basic cleaning typically done on a weekly or monthly basis;
  • Deep cleaning, which is a detailed cleaning with more intensive work than a standard clean;
  • Move-in and move-out cleaning, which is a detailed service preparing a home for residents moving in or out;
  • Green house cleaning, which is a service that uses eco-friendly cleaning supplies and products. 

Aside from the type of cleaning services available, homeowners may also choose daily, weekly, monthly or one-time 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.

I am so very pleased with the work J & J did at our house today! I am very picky and have never liked the work former house cleaners did, but J & J did a fabulous job cleaning our entire house. They were easy to work with and on time. I highly recommend them and will be referring them to my friends and family. Thank you J & J for your time and hard work. We are grateful to you.

I was notified by Chelsi of the cleaning crews arrival to my home prior to any work being conducted, which was a nice touch. When the crew arrived, they went right to work and they were efficient. I was most appreciative that they moved items and didn't just clean around them. The cleaning crew did a great job cleaning baseboards, ceiling fans and windows, bathrooms and countertops. I was impressed at how each person cleaned their own area, but came together as a team when needed to do so. They were courteous and well equipped to tackle my house and make it clean for the fall.

Jany responded same day I asked for referrals including the cost. Very transparent, what you see is what you get. Came a little early and ready to clean. She didn’t visit with me or talk on phone, both plusses in my book. We’re paying her to clean not entertain us. The house looks and smells wonderful. I asked her to return for another project for us. I just texted her info to a friend who’s looking for someone to do some extra cleaning and will do the same for others I know.

Her definition of a “deep clean” is very subjective. There were numerous spots throughout the house that were still filthy. I have included pictures. She only vacuumed the carpets, and my belief is that a deep clean service includes cleaning the carpet in a manner more than just vacuuming. I guess I’m to blame for this because I did not ask her what is her definition of “deep clean”, since Thumbtack allows Regardless, I specifically requested through Thumbtack that the windows be cleaned. Thumbtack has that as an additional option that can be selected, so I did. She quoted me a price based on my “deep clean” selection, along with my extras including window cleaning. She only cleaned half the windows, and the ones she did clean were not great. I specially pointed out to her where the windows were dirty, and only half of the windows were cleaned. Even the ones that were “cleaned” still had dirt and dead bugs in them. The air intake was also still filthy. I have included a picture of the amount of filth still on the air intake, which was also something I pointed out to her specifically as needing cleaning. I can not recommend her. Though she replied promptly and arrived early, her workmanship is lackluster.

Captivated cleaning responded to my request immediately. They priced the job the same day as the request and completed the job the next day (which was on a Sunday). I am very pleased with their work and would highly recommend them. The house was vacant and in bad shape. Once they were done it looked like a completely different home. And, there price was great!
