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.

She did an amazing job on a move out. When we get a new house we will be hiring for this company for a more regular cleaning service.

I bought this service to clean my house for my wife as a birthday surprise. Nicky was easy to reach, easy to work with, easy to understand, and good at meeting job requirements that I had. Her team was on time, friendly, open for guidance during the job. Overall we had a good experience and would recommend to anyone who wants their house clean to their specifications.***UPDATED REVIEW***The cleaning service was bought for a birthday gift for my wife and when we really started looking around, we saw many areas missed. areas such as light and water fixtures, baseboards, windowsills, blinds, and ceiling fans. When I called her to ask her about what I bought compared to what I received, she agreed that she needed to fix it and would send a person to my house to amend the services I bought at no charge to me. We agreed on a day and time, on that day and time, the person we agreed to never showed up. when I called and asked, I was told the staff had a car issue and couldn't make it and the other person she has is out of town. She insisted on sending another person but just needed time to find someone. understandable, just tell me. Since our original conversation about sending a person out, I have sent three emails thru this app to contact her, nothing. I have called the number provided on this app 3 times at 3 different times of day and left a voicemail, nothing. Frankly, I paid over 200.00 for a cleaning service that wasn't done correctly, not because I'm being nitpicky, but because there were items listed in the package I bought to be cleaned that was not cleaned. My oven range quit working after it was cleaned, and it will cost me money to fix that. It worked the night he cleaned it, I saw it. I went to use it for dinner, now it doesn't. Maybe its a coincidence, maybe not. The staff did wash multiple loads of laundry that I specifically asked not touch because they don't live there and I do. Washing clothes would take away from what I paid them to do and make work for me, which is exactly what happened. Overall, I would not buy this service again. The things they did clean were cleaned well, but there were things left untouched. Admittedly my house was a mess and I understand that, I don't expect perfection but I do expect what I paid for and I didn't get it. Now, I gave multiple chances for communication to make it right and seemed to have been ignored and it really leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
