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. 

What should I ask a house cleaner or maid before hiring them?

There are many questions to ask a cleaning service before you hire them to make sure they’re the right fit. These questions might include:

  • How much do you charge?
  • How do you set your prices -- per hour or per square foot? Or, do you charge a flat rate?
  • What is your past work experience? Can I see a list of references?
  • Are you accustomed to working with different home or apartment types and sizes?
  • Can you work with children or pets in the house?
  • What types of cleaning products do you use?
  • Do you bring your own cleaning supplies and products?
  • How often can you clean my home?
  • Is there anything you recommend I do (or don't do) to my home before you arrive?

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.

I recently moved out of an apartment and as I finished up with the packing and moving I did not have the time or energy to complete the cleaning process. I reached out to Maid Me please on Christmas Eve and received a response quickly, she had a crew at my old apartment within 48 hours and they did a remarkable job! The team completed the task in 3 hours and the entire house was immaculate!. I am convinced that every inch of the house was attended to by these professionals. The folks at Maid Me Please and I would highly recommend them to anybody in need of cleaning services. Just check out the photos!

World Maid Clean did. Great job making our new home look fabulous. Great service at a great price. When we first moved in, there were some stains in the garden tub that I just knew I would have to live with or replace the tub. WMC got the stains out! Thank you for doing such a great job.

I had contacted Premier Maid Services on 4/26 to schedule a very important cleaning for May 11. This was supposed to be a Mother’s Day gift, so I made sure to schedule it well ahead of time to circumvent any potential issues for an early morning appointment – 9AM on Saturday, May 11. Not to mention, I let Premier Maid Services on know that it needed to be done at 9AM due to another appointment I had at noon on May 11. Trust me, if I did not have this crucial appointment, I would’ve been more flexible. But I made it clear, that wasn’t possible in the beginning. One week before the cleaning, I got a message asking if they could arrive between 9A – 10A. Well, sure. At this point, I’m stuck with them since it would be difficult to try and find someone else within the week. Fast forward to Saturday – the DAY of the cleaning – I had to call them at 9:55 asking where they were. Jennifer said they would arrive soon, because they were running late due to the weather. Weather? It was raining. I told them if they did not arrive at the specified time, then I would need to cancel the appointment because I wouldn’t make my noon commitment that I had told them several weeks ago. Needless to say, they did not make it out to my house by 10:45A (I even gave them extra time) and I contacted them to cancel. At that point, they indicated they were “8 minutes away.” It is obvious they weren’t interested enough to earn a new customer. Based off of my experience don’t use these cleaners!
