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.

This was my first time hiring a cleaning service and I wanted to hire someone reasonably priced but well reviewed and I found that in Perfection Maid Services! I was in the hospital and wanted to take the load of cleaning the house off my partners shoulders because I was not physically able to do much after surgery so I hired Perfection Maid Services for a deep clean. They were kind, efficient, professional, and did an incredible job. It made coming home and recovering after surgery so much more peaceful and easy than I thought possible. I will absolutely be hiring them again for standard cleanings in the future!

Overall a very thorough job. I appreciated the quick response from the owner Dan. They had quick availability and good pricing. Maid services I've used in the past had stuff like FIVE hour windows of arrival (thanks a lot Molly Maid) while Easyway Maid Service has a 1 hour arrival window. There was hardly a spot left anywhere in the house, with the exception of some of the (I don't know what you call it) interior part of the burners on the stove. Honestly those hadn't been cleaned in 3 years and were so blackened I think they just need to be replaced anyway. So my whole apartment was clean top to bottom. It was like having a brand new place. I would DEFINITELY recommend these guys if you're looking for a thorough cleaning and a more attentive customer service.

Absolutely fantastic service! They were the sweetest ladies as well as being quick and efficient. I have never seen a house cleaned with as much detail. They also showed up early for me so they would overlap with my movers while I was still at the house. If I was still living in Austin, they would be my go to day to day maids. I can't overstate how pleasant this experience was.

I truly couldn't have been more pleased with Ceci's Maids! They arrived early which in this world is amazing! I purchased the Move Out package in fact I had to leave with the movers right after they arrived. I felt totally comfortable leaving them there to do the work. The next day I went over to see how they did and friends let me tell you...The house was immaculate! Fans, baseboards, carpets, floors, appliances, bathrooms all clean as a whistle! All I can do is say THANKS Ceci's Maids! You did an AMAZING job! Will recommend you to all my friends!

Michelle is super good! I submit a request Sunday and she come on Monday morning 8:30am on time! The price she quote is very fair and she did an excellent job. There are 2 maid coming and both of them have warm smile and work very efficiently. She gave me a flat rate for my move-out clean and take her time to clean every corner of the house. The kitchen completely turn brand new. I love her warm smile and quick help. I would recommend her to my friend and future work!

Absolutely blown away! I’ve hired for cleaning services before (both independent maids as well as ones working for larger firms) and I can tell you this: Darling is AMAZING! Hands down. I kind of want to tell you not to hire her so I can have her all to myself!!! Seriously though: she’s professional, shows up, has supplies and tools, is super responsive (I was able to book her SAME DAY!! 🤯) and her work ethic/ attention to detail is impressive. I have two long hair cats and have been traveling for a month so you might imagine the fur in my house... 😳 Darling didn’t even blink and took care of business! For four hours she was scrubbing and wiping and vacuuming and mopping - and all that with a great attitude! Do yourself and your house a favor and get Darling in there for some extra shine and sparkle. But leave some of her time open for me! (PS: This evening my mom came over for dinner and asked me how I managed to get the floors so nice and shiny! 😱🤫😁)
