Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much do house cleaners cost in Houston?

The best house cleaners in Houston charge a starting rate between $50 and $135. Your price will vary depending on how many bedrooms and bathrooms need to be cleaned, as well as the state and size of your home. If your home has mold issues, be sure to discuss this with your house cleaner before the appointment. You will likely be asked to decide between a standard clean, deep clean or a move-out clean. 

Please note: All cost estimates are accurate at time of writing and are subject to change. For the most accurate, up-to-date cost estimates for your specific project, get free estimates from pros near you. 

How do I choose the best house cleaning service in Houston?

Budget, home type and the number of times your home needs to be cleaned are all important factors to consider when searching for the best cleaning service in Houston. Some companies may cater to different budgets or house styles, requiring you to consider your needs carefully. 

Because of Houston's humid weather, especially during the summer months, it's important for cleaners to pay special attention to areas inside the home that may have collected too much moisture and, in turn, mildew. 

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.

This company lacks the flexibility that I would like. They charge by the square footage of your house as reported by HCAD. I only wanted a portion of the house cleaned and there were unable or unwilling to quote a price other than cleaning the entire house. I cannot rate their actual service as I did not have them clean my house.

A team of three cleaned my house in less than two hours and it is a 3,500 sq. ft. house. Before leaving they asked me to walk the house to see if there was anything I was unsatisfied with. The work was top notch. This was my second cleaning and I will have them back.
