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.

Delighted with the service I received from Mountain Mama's Cleaning Service! Katie was wonderful to work with in all aspects. She was communicative and made scheduling easy, arrived on time, and completed high quality work. I haven't had a house cleaning service before and hired Mountain Mama's Cleaning Service to deep clean the house. I could not be happier with how clean the house was. Katie was wonderful to work with and I look forward to working with her again in the future! Highly recommend.

The women who deep cleaned my house and cleaned the fridge and oven did an excellent job. I will be using this same service again after the house is set up and furniture is placed. Just excellent value and quality.

Hire this woman. She's great!👍 Your house will be clean and smell super. She brings everything she needs to get the job done and knows how to give you the results you want. I hired her to do a move-in cleaning and was so pleased I hired her to do a move-out cleaning at my former residence. Give her a call and leave your mess to Jess!

They were so incredible. She got back to me incredibly quick. They came yesterday and cleaned and organized my house all day and it looks breathtaking. I couldn't be happier and will definitely use them many more times in the future.

I have used a house cleaning service in assistance for many years. My recent relocation led me to look for a new person. I was dissatisfied with our current company in terms reliability and quality. I asked Tara for a quote and made my needs clear as to be fair in my ask. Tara was very responsive to my inquiry for a in person quote. She understood not just the job but what our families overall needs were. She was able to come and meet us in person and quote the house cleaning costs. Tara is kind and professional and I found myself very comfortable with her. I felt compassion and grace and that prevented me from a total shame spiral as I walked her through a home that was pretty cluttered and needed a deep clean. We scheduled a day for a deep clean, which was fast. She arrived with 2 other incredibly hardworking women and went to work. For the size of this house and the amount of work involved, the 3 person crew made quick work of it while not cutting corners. They were very thorough and Tara asked for my approval and feedback upon completion. My home is beautiful and clean. The Ladies were friendly with my dog also. My other dog was kept put up but Rudy enjoyed the attention very much. I am very happy with the work. I highly recommend Tara and Dixiemaids for your cleaning needs. I personally look forward to working with Dixiemaids again and regularly.

The team did a great job cleaning my father’s house! I live in Knoxville and they made sure to send me pictures and kept open lines of communication. My dad is going through treatment for cancer so I am really grateful for the attention to detail they gave his home!

Paula came to my home to assess the job, gave me a reasonable offer and came back at the day/time we agreed on - arriving promptly with all of her own cleaning supplies. She was very efficient and when she left my house sparkled. She'll return regularly now.

I was so excited about this company at first and signed up for weekly cleaning. The first time they came, my house was so clean and I was so excited. Second time was "meh" and I kept having to ask him to do things like take out the trash and he forgot an entire bathroom even though I reminded him. Then we were out of town and then had a terrible stomach bug run through everyone and I had to cancel a few times, but I communicated with him the whole time and the owner, Brandon, was always friendly, helpful, and prompt in replying. When we were finally all better, I went to schedule a cleaning through the app and I couldn't. I tried messaging him to let him know, but heard nothing... then called a few days later. Over a week I tried every way I could to get ahold of someone-2 different phone numbers, email, messenger, the scheduling app... nada. Now nothing for 2 weeks. So, this company has charged me $800 the last 2 months and only cleaned twice. And now won't respond. I kept waiting thinking maybe something bad happened or they had an emergency or something. Who knows. They have my credit card running on a monthly charge and I can't cancel it without getting ahold of someone. It is the most frustrating thing. I tried purchasing a "test" on the app for $2 not sure what that was, but thinking it would let me schedule. I scheduled a cleaning that way, but no one showed up. I'm at a loss.
