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.

Tarika and her crew did such an amazing job cleaning our house! They were so responsive and arrived exactly on time, and they cleaned everything so deeply and efficiently. Our house is sparkling clean and smells amazing and they took care of so many little details. I highly recommend Praise the Maid and will definitely hire them again the next time we need a deep clean!

I had a wonderful first experience with Marvelous Maids. They responded quickly and thoroughly to my request, showed up right on time, and did a great job cleaning my house. All in all a delightful experience! Highly recommend! I will be using this service regularly.

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!

Had Sustainable Maids do my move out cleaning after 2 years. They arrived on time, did a walk through and started cleaning in a methodical way that spoke volumes to their experience. Way better than expected results. The owner and her realtor both asked for their information they were so impressed with the job they did. Would recommend them for house, office, move out, whatever. Competitive bid...earned a tip from me! Would use them again!!!

The actual cleaning was very good. However the logistics were a nightmare :( I made an appointment several days ahead for Tuesday at 2pm. I get a call that morning to say that the appointment was never actually put in the calendar, and can we please reschedule for the following day? This by itself was not the end of the world. An inconvenience but not awful. Along comes Wednesday and the maid doesn't show up until 2.5 hours AFTER THE SCHEDULED appointment. It's really disappointing. The customer service and scheduling was a nightmare. The actual house cleaning was very good.

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! 😱🤫😁)
